Gsdj asked:

The wife of the surgeon who removed McBride's excess skin said he probably didn't have discernible loose skin on his face and neck because he incorporated animal protein into my diet while loosing weight. Does anyone know if there is any scientific basis to the idea that animal protein will prevent loose skin in these areas of the body? Or is there no scientific basis to the doctor's wife's opinion on this?

Monica W I have a degree in nutrition science and I have not heard of this specifically. But high quality protein (which often is found from animal sources) is essential for a healthy weight loss plan.
