Guys, what's the biggest factor you've found in keeping your face defined and unpuffy?

Recently I've had success with really lowering starch - my face always has great colour, cheekbones defined, cheeks don't look inflamed.

What works for you?

I find the most sustainable is a middle ground. Meaning if I go for really defined, I end up draining glycogen and getting a dehydrated look. Booze or nicotine will do it, but there is a rebound puffiness.

At least 2500 calories at least 100g protein . Eat enough salt daily which helps lower puffiness I notice on the rare occasion I don’t eat enoug salts my fingers get puffy and rings don’t fit . Get enough sunlight and sleep . I personally don’t have issues with starch. Eat about 10 corn tortillas a day and a lot of potatoes as I’m Russian Mexican and both are large parts of the diet. Not eating enough for me is worse than eating 3 lbs of potatoes as it increases water retention probably due to cortisol increase as not eating enough calories is a stressor . A gentle walk in nature helps me release extra water maybe as it relaxes me versus the gym

K2; aspirin, potentially high sugar, pregnenolone. My face is already slender, so these protocols can exaggerate that effect, but that’s my recommendation. Also, lowering estrogen will have the effect of reduced puffiness on its own

No starch. Face is always lean and defined no matter how much fat I eat. When I eat potatoes my face starts to get fuller.

No fiber works for me. Recently cut out the carrot salad and bloating/puffy face decreased tremendously.
