Cellulite sucks. If you’ve had trouble with cellulite you can know what a pain it is to deal with. The first step to addressing cellulite is figuring out where it comes from, why it exists, then what we can do something about it.

What is cellulite?

That dimple look we see are fat deposits under the skin. It happens when those fat deposits push against the connective tissue making them look distorted. Cellulite is medically referred to as edematous fibrosclerotic panniculopathy or EFP. It is estimated that 90 percent of adult women have cellulite. I am definitely part of the 90 percent.
We notice it more common in women over men because of the differences in the way fat, muscle, and connective tissue are patterned under the skin. It is important to know that cellulite is not related to a weight issue. Anyone can have it and it is normal to have.

What causes cellulite?

Genetics plays a big part in whether or not you will have cellulite, but there are other factors. Our lifestyle can have a huge impact. We might have a greater appearance of cellulite with poor nutrition, low water intake, little exercise and excessive smoking. We have to remember what we put in our body, runs our body. If you feed your body crap your body will respond with crappy looks and crappy performance.

How to get rid of it?

Drink Water

One of the main keys to reducing cellulite is to remove toxins from the body. Your body will store toxins in your fat to minimize the exposer of them to the organs. Drinking a lot of water is a great way to flush out toxins. It also hydrates the body making the skin look smoother and reduces the appearance of cellulite. My suggestion is drink as close to a gallon of water a day as you can.

Eat Clean and Get Nutrients

Another great way of removing toxins is by eating natural and nutrient dense foods. Eating foods with alkaline helps to pull the acidic toxins out of the body. Alkaline can be found in fruits and vegetables like broccoli, berries, and asparagus. They should make up a good part of your daily diet. You want to have about half your meal be vegetables. Don’t forget vegetables are nutrient dense. So not only are we getting great nutrients, but we are also going to feel fuller longer, which as a bonus, may result in some fat loss.

Build Muscle and Sweat

We all know working out has tons of benefits. One of those include releasing toxins through the skin by sweating. Again, by decreasing toxins we reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Working out also helps build muscle. When we build muscle, we burn fat helping to reduce cellulite. Strong muscles will make the skin smoother and less lumpy and overall give your body a more flattering look.

Massaging/foam rolling

Foam Rolling Helps Cellulite

Foam rollers are useful for dealing with cellulite as well as sore muscles.

Probably one of my favorite ways to reduce cellulite is by massages and foam rolling. Massaging helps increase blood flow and reduce fluid buildup in the body by stimulating the lymphatic system. Plus it also feels amazing. There are specific massage machines (Endermologie) used to reduce the appearance of cellulite. The machine pulls, sucks, and squeezes the areas. However, this is not long term and very expensive. Foam rolling is a great alternative to break up the fluid buildup in that area. It is also great for muscle recovery.

Here is a little bit of information on our guest-poster, Jackie!

“My fitness journey began during my professional ballet career. I was working so hard but not getting the physical results I wanted. I researched and learned what I needed to do to meet my goals. I fell in love with the process and the knowledge I was gaining. Soon, it became my lifestyle. I got certified as a personal trainer through ISSA. I wanted to share what I had learned and continue to learn.My goal now is to help others learn how to reach their fitness goals through offering different training programs that are personalized specifically for each person to fit their needs, schedule, and goals!
