Are we talking about excess loose skin? That may need a knife. But fat....? A low fat diet will almost never reduce the last bit of excess fat permanetly and without exercise but do just the opposite. Personally I would try Nutiva Virgin coconut oil for cooking and take a tablespoon a day, flax, green tea extract, Vitamin D, omega 3 and a multi vitamin. Right now I cannot exercise and just last week I lost 4 pounds (usually it is 1 or 2).
I try hard to keep a stable fasting blood sugar. I am not nor have I ever been diabetic or prediabetic. I bought a test kit to test and keep my fbs stable. I have been as high as 106 (which dr.s say is ok) but ideal is 85 and I have brought mine down to 93. I think as my fat goes so will the numbers.
All in all if you want to keep track of something, keep track of how many carbs you eat at each meal. I try to stay between 10 and 25. ADD the fat...give it 3 weeks and see if you dont notice a small difference. Baby steps...baby steps.

Doing it again! See my other SP forkitless.
Romans 12: 1-2 "Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will."
