Additional FAQ on Cellulite
Do only overweight people get cellulite?
Every type of person gets cellulite, even the best athletes in the world have it. Yes, being overweight highlights its appearance, but you can be lean and eat well and still end up with cellulite.
Can exercise help reduce cellulite?
Exercise will not cure cellulite, but it may help to prevent or reduce its appearance. Any kind of movement is great, but strength training is ideal because improves circulation, reduces fat, and builds muscles.
Is cellulite is caused by toxins in the body?
Cellulite is not solely caused by toxins, but they may play a role — the science is still out. Again, it is caused by fat cells pushing up towards the surface of the skin, while connective tissue tethers down creating a little pocket or lump. Other factors that contribute to its appearance include:
- Retaining fluids
- Poor eating habits
- Poor circulation
- Weak collagen structures and production
- Sedentary lifestyle
What can help address the appearance of cellulite?
There is a solution to the factors that contribute to the appearance of cellulite, and they all have antidotes!
Stay hydrated – Dehydration can lead to bloating and fluid retention, so to prevent and minimize cellulite drink plenty of water and consume hydrating foods such as fresh veggies and fruits.
Change your eating habits – If you consume a highly processed diet filled with sugar and starchy carbs, make small changes and steer towards a whole-foods diet with a colorful assortment of veggies and fruit.
Get moving – The antidote to poor circulation is to get moving. If you work a sedentary job, make a point to get up throughout your day and walk around or up and down the stairs. Cayenne and ginger are also great foods that help improve circulation.
Consume more collagen – Eating collagen-rich foods can help improve the structure and production of collagen, reducing and preventing cellulite. Try bone broth or a collagen supplement. Vitamin C is also supportive of collagen production so taking a supplement or eating vitamin C-rich foods will only benefit you.
