I’ve been fasting for a little over a month now and I’ve noticed new stretch marks on my tummy and thighs… for reference, I’m a 24 year old female with no previous pregnancies, I’m 5’4″ and I’m 185lbs. Has anyone else noticed this or had problems with this?
Had your skin become stretched by the fat under it? It is possible that now you are losing weight, your skin is looser and the marks are now visible….. Never heard of this before.

Hi, fasting_me. Thanks for your answer. I don’t think that is the case; my weight has been relatively consistent throughout the years, and I’ve never really had a lot of stomach fat. Plus, the marks I’m seeing are brand new. They are a reddish-purple instead of white like I would expect with older stretch marks.

Good luck! The first few days are toughest but then hunger normally goes. Drink lots of water https://t.co/c1BVDra1hA
