Can collagen make you gain weight?

Since collagen is the most prominent protein in our bodies, surely by adding a collagen supplement into our diets, we'll gain weight, right? Since we’re often asked whether taking collagen can make you gain weight, we’ve put together this guide to set the record straight.

The basic answer?

No – collagen does not make you gain weight. The only way you’ll gain weight is if you’re on a calorie surplus diet, i.e. you’re consuming more calories than you’re burning. Since collagen does not contain a lot of calories, you should be fine.

What is collagen?

Put simply, collagen is the glue that holds your body together; it stems from the Greek word “Kolla”, which means glue (https://kollohealth.com/blogs/news/what-is-in-a-collagen-supplement). While collagen supports your skin, bones, nails and joints, it’s also very helpful for keeping your metabolism healthy to burn fat.

So, what’s the relationship between weight gain and collagen?

One of the things collagen can do is help build lean muscle, which, as a result, helps prevent weight gain and excess fat. So, if you’re a gym-goer, collagen is a great post-workout supplement to strengthen and develop your muscle. While collagen can't burn fat, it plays a huge role in helping you lose weight by building lean muscle, although a balanced diet and exercise regime is essential.

Will collagen help minimise cellulite?

While cellulite is a normal feature of our bodies, many people try to reduce its appearance to keep their skin looking smooth. One way you can do this is by taking a collagen supplement, which will work by reducing the appearance of skin dimples (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4685482/).
