Cellulite Diets

Dec 5, 2007
Yep, it's a fact of life and aging. Cellulite will attack most people, although women are more susceptible to it then men. We all know about the dreaded dimples. Those "cottage cheese" butts, thighs and bellies. There are a number of remedies for cellulite. Lotions, potions, body wraps and topical creams can work for a short time but the best route to being cellulite free is through a cellulite diet. A good cellulite diet will reduce your body's fat content thereby reducing the appearance of cellulite.

One of the main causes of cellulite is excess toxins in the body. To start the fight against the unsightly condition you must rid your body of these. These toxins either form little packets of fat or remain soluble and get trapped in pockets of fat just under the skin. The cleansing of your system will also reduce your tendency towards cellulite. Even with the perfect cellulite diet, cellulite may be unavoidable. There are many factors in tendencies of cellulite including lifestyle, diets, genetics, and hormone levels. If you are female, you are most likely a part of the 80% that suffer from cellulite. Also fat and cellulite are not the same thing. I have seen fat people with no cellulite and skinny people with cellulite.

Anti Cellulite Diet Foods

The average cellulite diet starts by flushing the system of toxins. Drink lots of water. Drinking lots of water helps to flush the body and remove toxins more effectively than just dieting alone. Regulating the body's fat metabolism can be achieved by using essential fatty acids. Essential fatty acids can be obtained by including seeds (sunflower and pumpkin), walnuts, fish and various oils such as canola or hemp among others, in your diet. An added advantage of essential fatty acids is their properties relating to skin tissue repair. Foods like soya, cauliflower, spinach, tomatoes and orange are high is lecithin, known for its skin strengthening properties. Antioxidants such as blueberries, strawberries and carrots help to minimize tissue damage. Stay away from processed foods because of their high content of fat, salt and sugar. Fresh fruits and vegetables top the list for a healthy cellulite diet.

The Perfect Cellulite Diet Plan

Sorry to mislead you but the perfect cellulite diet plan does not exist. There is no diet that will completely rid you of cellulite. Your diet can't even guarantee the reduction of the appearance of cellulite. But... if you improve your inner health with nutrition, you will maximize your chances of the cellulite gradually disappearing from your body. So what is the so called cellulite diet plan? It actually is more of a healthy eating plan or a cleansing plan than a sure fire cellulite diet. Stay away from toxins like alcohol, spices, and coffee, especially with cream. A change in lifestyle may be needed since it is not always diet that contributes to the formation of cellulite. Cellulite may be enhanced by such things as cigarettes, crash diets and over the counter medications such as diet or diuretic pills. Drink lots of water. Concentrate on foods that cleanse like vegetable juices and fats that heal. Drink lots of vegetable juices and use unrefined sea salt.
