Cellulite everything you need to know

Quite a few women complain of the appearance of fat  in certain parts of the body such as buttocks, thighs, abdomen, etc., if the fat appears in the form of nodules , it is known as cellulite.

Although it is true, a large part of this problem has a horrific origin , since between 85 and 95% of women present them after adolescence, however, the appearance in men is much less frequent, around 25 or 30 %.

Although the hormonal factor is shown by a wide variety of studies, the appearance of cellulite is also linked to the presence of toxins for a long time in the body , and therefore with the diet we eat .

In relation to food, we must comment that we must base the diet on a healthy diet that contains enough draining agents that cleanse the body.

It is vitally important to drink between two and a half liters of water daily, being able to substitute a part for unsweetened natural juices.

Below we offer you all the necessary information to remedy it.

How to recognize cellulite?

Pinch with your thumb and index fingers a piece of your skin, if the thickness between the two fingers is at least 1.5 cm and it hurts, you have fat.

Squeeze a large area of ​​your skin between your hands, if when doing so in the compressed area there are holes similar to orange peel, you have cellulite.

A diet against cellulite

Bet on healthy food , not processed, or previously cooked; which is high in fat. Avoid highly seasoned, fried, or battered foods. It is much more advisable to cook steamed, cooked or in the oven, as well as to consume fresh foods, such as salads and seasonal fruits that are not very sweet.

  • You should restrict salt in meals because it promotes fluid retention. Avoid fast carbohydrates like sugars and refined flours.
  • Control fat intake trying not to abuse saturated ones.
  • You have to eat a lot of fruit , especially between meals. Not very sweet fruits are especially recommended, such as kiwi, pineapple, strawberries, citrus fruits such as orange, grapefruit or tangerines. Fruits rich in vitamin C, fiber and highly diuretic that prevent constipation, preventing toxins from accumulating in the body.
  • Avoid powerful stews, rich in fat, which cause us to accumulate calories that are not burned and remain stored in the body in the form of fat, which can lead to cellulite nodules.
  • Follow a diet rich in fiber to avoid constipation , which causes toxins to accumulate for longer in the body. You should not forget to include legumes and foods rich in protein and low in fat in the diet.
  • You should take infusions that, in addition to helping you cleanse your body of toxins, have a draining and antioxidant effect (Here is a link to the antioxidant diet )

To get rid of cellulite already present in our body, we must follow the lemon detoxifying diet  that helps you  cleanse the body of toxins or the cleansing diet . 

How to make cellulite disappear?

Draining massages and anti-cellulite cosmetics will also help us but if we do not accompany this with exercise and a healthy diet, cellulite will soon reappear.

It is very important to follow a healthy lifestyle avoiding alcoholic beverages, as they contain empty calories that are transformed into fat. Do not abuse coffee, and if possible not smoke , as it impairs cellular oxygenation , as well as doing physical exercise regularly, if possible, aerobic exercise.

Exercises to eliminate cellulite

The trick is to work all the lower muscles from all angles, reducing fat deposits replacing lost muscle tissue, to give the area a taut look.

Generally, women every decade lose around 2 kilos of muscle mass because they are transformed into fat, so the sooner you start to remove cellulite the better, since with age you will gain fat and therefore the elasticity of the skin will be less and will be appreciated more cellulite on your body.

Therefore, we offer you a training plan to reduce this annoying and unsightly known as orange peel skin .

The plan is to perform the following exercises daily:

  • Squats : Sit and stand up with your legs shoulder-width apart doing 3 sets of 15 reps each.
  • Gluteal contractions : Lying on your back, do gluteal contractions by lifting your abdomen with your feet resting on the soles. You should do 3 sets of 15 repetitions each.
  • Side kicks on all fours : Supported with our hands on the ground, face down and on the knees, we will give side kicks doing 3 sets of 15 repetitions with each leg.

If cellulite is in the abdominal area, we must combine these exercises with abdominals and hypopressive exercises .

Do anti-cellulite creams work?

Well, really, by themselves they are not the solution to cellulite although they contribute to make it disappear faster if we combine it with the diet and with draining and reducing massages since these are responsible for the nodular decomposition of fat so that the body eliminates it of natural form. It is very important to combine anti-cellulite creams with a circular massage so that it penetrates correctly, for this there are also electric massagers that exert pressure on the fat nodules .

I’m sorry to say that anti-cellulite creams that work generally come at a high price , so it is always better to combine it with exercise and diet to achieve the expected results.

Go ahead and follow the guidelines to make cellulite disappear that makes us so uncomfortable and complex to women, success is assured , you know that a healthy diet is the basis .

The diet of purifying and detoxifying juices can also help you drain the body, here we leave you all the information.
