Cellulite is nothing more than fat that has pushed against the connective tissue under the skin, and makes the top of the skin look lumpy. It is generally found on the thighs, stomach and butt. In order to get rid of cellulite one has to work hard. Despite the many advertised products that promise to get rid of cellulite quickly and easily, the fact is that treatments like liposuction, do come with an inherent danger, and are best not used.
A healthy way of getting rid of cellulite is to start on a low-fat diet. In place of processed foods, fresh fruits and vegetables and be sure to add whole grain bread to your plan. Cut down on the overall fat intake, by making sure you only use lean meats and avoid fried foods.
The next step is to add exercise to your daily routine, because without exercise even the healthiest of diets show little or no effect. If you have never exercised before, start slowly, even thirty minutes of walking will make a big difference and then build up. As you start to exercise, your body will use the food more efficiently, and decrease the collection of cellulite in your body.
While some people swear by intense massages to get rid of cellulite, because they claim that the pressure will disperse the deposits. The fact is that massages only help in reducing the appearance of cellulite by making your skin puff up, and it is effective only for a short time. The cellulite will come back unless you make changes in your lifestyle and food selection. Final word on massages, the intensity may be too painful for some people to withstand and could cause bruising.
There are many commercial treatments available starting with all types of creams, to herbal supplements, to pills and the list goes on. Just remember nothing worthwhile comes without hard work, and if you really want to get rid of cellulite and achieve a sound and healthy body then start on a diet and exercise regiment.
