    So I am 27 years old and I feel like my face has aged rapidly. Sunken eyes. The forhead temple are u can start to see veins.

    its like the skin is losing its fat cushioning.

    i have always been relatively skinny. 5,10 150 pounds. I have minor love handles and lower ab fat. So i am like kind of skinny fat definitely minor.

    Anyone have any suggestions?

    Pregnenolone and whole milk strongly increase face fat for me.

    Thoughts on this

    Gluteal fat has more monounsaturated fatty acids and less saturated fatty acids than facial fat." http://www.ncbi.nlm....ubmed/11405760/

    "Intakes of polyunsaturated fatty acids, including n-3 fatty acids, and trans fatty acids are reflected in the adipose tissue but that intakes of saturated and monounsaturated fatty acids are not." http://www.ncbi.nlm..../pubmed/1858698

    unfortunately milk isnt an option for me. Most def have serious digestive issues with it.

    I know what you’re talking about and want an answer for it too. I remember reading a study a while back about it but I can’t find it for the life of me. Pregnenelone never had any effect for me like that, and I’ve only really seen it tighten saggy skin à la Peat, but maybe I need to take it more frequently. I think it’s cortisol that causes it

    Androgens increase skin thickness. Thinning of the skin is at least partly due to hormonal issues. Increasing testosterone can definitely help.

    i dont think the issue is skin thickness. Its fat under the skin.

    A drop in androgens and unopposed cortisol leads to a decrease in face fat. It's a major issue in the elderly. Since you say you have some midsection fat, it could be unopposed cortisol.
    Stress influences everything else in the body, including digestion. So if digestion is compromised, you'll be in a more inflammatory state. Inflammation promotes lipolysis and insulin resistance.
    So I'd say focus on managing stress.

    I just noticed today that my undereye area is looking a lot healthier, my dark circles aren't as prominent and it seems like the area is starting to fill in with fat even though that isn't supposed to be possible. A few months ago I was seriously contemplating getting a tear trough filler because I looked so damn sick and tired.

    This has all happened since I reintroduced milk in large quantities and made an effort to get in LOTS of calories, nothing else has had the same dramatic effect on my physical appearance. It's really quite profound. @tca300 has been a huge inspiration as he has improved his health with a diet made up out mostly milk and some liver.

    I'm doing about 1 gallon of raw milk per day now, eggs and honey, and some red meat every day to boost my iron status which I tested low for. No fiber as it seems to block nutrient absorption.

    If you have sunken eyes, it means there's very weak bone support or you simply don't hold much fat in that area. BUT... i ahve the same issue and getting fatter doesn't change fat deposition around eyes. Get fillers.
