The cellulite diet
Although eating the right foods is not going to guarantee you with removing cellulite, it is a good start and it will also improve your whole health status. I've written an article about how you can reduce cellulite through eating right so I'm going to advise you on what not to eat if you want to get rid of cellulite. So stay away from these foods if you want to have healthy looking skin, without the lumps and bumps given by cellulite: caffeine, salty foods, or fatty foods because they create excess water in the body. These cause cellulite in your body to become engorged and look more visible; hence cottage cheese thighs!
Exercises against cellulite
Remember part of treating cellulite is creating a lifestyle which helps manage fat in the body. After all cellulite is excess fat stored in the body. Building muscle mass in cellulite affected areas such as legs and buttocks help burn fat which later can turn into cellulite. Developing muscle mass will also work to stretch and smooth dimpled skin. As a result legs will be firmer and you will feel great.
