Weight loss promotes both the loss of fat and muscle. Begin a weight lifting regimen to build muscle in order to fill out the excess skin after weight loss. Eat a healthy, protein-rich diet to build muscle while maintaining a low body fat percentage.
Improve skin elasticity by consuming 500 milligrams of gelatin per day. It may be difficult to include an adequate amount of gelatin in a daily diet, as it is only available in foods such as oxtail, chicken feet or short ribs. Gelatin supplements are sold online or at any health-supplement store.
Vitamin C is an important part of collagen formation and skin elasticity. Consume at least two grams of vitamin C per day. Vitamin C is available in many fruits or as a supplement. In addition to oral ingestion, apply vitamin C directly onto skin. Vitamin C supplements and topical creams are available online or at any department store.
