Collagen is the keyword that will be driving this blog. Collagen is the main reason why your skin has a certain level of elasticity. You can always find a suitable Collagen supplement, but beyond that, there are other ways to promote Collagen growth in your body, naturally. Here are a few of those:
- Drink water. Loads of water. Here’s a little formula to help determine how much water you should be drinking daily: Take your weight in pounds divided by 2; this will give you your magic number
- Build muscle & eat enough protein (Egg whites / Chicken / Salmon).
- Supplement with Fish Oil
- Take Vitamin C thru’ less sugary sources (hint: lemon). Vitamin C is essential for producing collagen and elastin
- Don’t cut down on healthy fats. The health industry has brainwashed us to think eating saturated fats will make us fat. It won’t! Supplement yourself with plenty of cheese, peanut butter and eat yolks to improve skin texture and build muscles faster
A weird question I asked myself a lot when I started losing weight is that some people have very elastic and glowing skin while others don’t. The answer here, unfortunately, is genetics. Genetics will play a major role in higher or lower levels of Collagen. But after all that is said and done, you can always work hard and be consistent with defeating the genetics demon.
I hope this helps. Now go back and kick some ass!
