fruits-veggiesBefore we dive into the steps of actually getting rid of cellulite, it is important to understand exactly what it is. It can typically be found in bum, thighs, arms, stomach. You might have noticed that these are the exact locations where stubborn fat tends to linger. Cellulite appears as if it s lump skin that is akin to the dimples of a golf ball. But on the inside, cellulite is simply a pocket of fat that is sitting directly under your skin. If these fat pockets are pushing against the connective tissue, it can create that golf-ball appearance. There are number of factors including, but not limited to, your background, your genes, age, lifestyle and more that have an impact on the degree of cellulite. It should be noted, however, that cellulite is much more common in women than men due to the presence of estrogen and females’ naturally thinner skin.

Tip #1: As a mother’s intuition suggests, vegetables and fruits are great, especially when you are trying to get rid of that pesky cellulite. However, moms probably cannot explain why. Vegetables and fruits are helpful as they are full of antioxidants that combat free radicals. Furthermore, they work to limit damage in the future as they create another layer of protection. Brightly-colored fruits and vegetables (carrots, tomatoes, sweet potatoes, berries, squash, broccoli, berries) tend to have the highest antioxidant content.

Tip #2: Treat your body right. While it may sounds simple, limiting your intake of toxins, which are quite common in today’s society,can do wonders for smoothing out your cellulite. Free radicals which are caused by stress, pesticides, charred foods, cigarette smoke, alcohol, and more can wreak havoc in our bodies. Try to reduce your intake of all these and start treating your body like the temple it is.
