Cellulite has become a burden that most women have been plagued with. The most common areas are the buttocks, thighs & even the stomach. Having cellulite might keep some of us self-conscious women from wearing swimsuits or even shorts.
Some common questions that are raised when discussing cellulite are: What causes cellulite? How do I get rid of cellulite on my legs?
I have read many articles to find the answer to what causes cellulite. What I have found is that nobody really knows. I have seen many theories such as: genetics, hormones, lack of exercise, poor diet and even wearing your underwear too tight.
How do you get rid of cellulite? From what I have read, it is actually not as complicated as what causes cellulite. A few suggestions are:
1) Diet: Try eating foods rich in more healthy fats such as avocados & peanut butter and get rid of the foods with the bad fats such as french fries, chips, sweets etc. Also, try to drink water throughout the day.
2) Reduce Stress – Stress can mess with our metabolism and how our bodies handle fat and calories
3) Lead as healthy life style as possible: reduce the use of alcohol, take your vitamins, get adequate sleep, quit smoking etc
3) Targeted Exercise – Try exercises that are targeting the areas in where you want to reduce cellulite. The exercise will not only burn fat but help you tone the problem areas.
Use your common sense. Really, are any of the items listed above things you did not already know? I am not a doctor, just a woman that was tired of cellulite and took action.
