Steps To Get Rid of Cellulite
1. Eat Healthy – Reduce Fat intake
Since cellulite is nothing but fat which is unevenly distributed in your lower body, it is creating your skin looking bumpy. First step in reducing cellulite is to stop its formation. Eat less fat is a commonsense advice. Watch your cholesterol and triglyceride levels regularly which are indiacation of your fat intake.
Stop eating junk foot and fizzy drinks. Eat protein rich diet with more vegetables and fruits. So don’t go overboard on eating less to starvation. Just eat less fat. Check every food label for fat content before you buy them.
Eating healthy is more important then eating less for a balanced body health.
2. Exercise Lower body – focus on Thigh, Butt and Back muscles
The objective here is to improve blood circulation in the lower part of your body and increase muscular activities in the butt and thighs so that no more muscle disintegrates into fat and the existing fat turns into muscles.
These exercises will initially show you no further increase in cellulite. That itself is a big win. You may be surprised to know that on an average a 5 lb of your muscle is replaced into 15 lb of fat in a decade as we age. Therefore, not letting the muscle turns into fat is a big win, though it may not physically show any improvement in the cellulite reduction.
Continued exercise will then make significant reduction in the already accumulated fat in the form of cellulite. Since no more cellulite is being formed, the exercise begins to convert the existing cellulite into muscles.
Following exercises are recommended to remove cellulite
- Squat and Side Lifts
- V- Leg Pull
You can do many other lower body exercises, but these two will give you the maximum benefits to reduce your cellulite fast.
Yoga postures are also very good for cellulite reduction as these postures improve blood circulation and flexibility of the body by stimulating muscles.
Yoga certainly helps a lot as it is a form of resistance exercise that increases muscle mass and improves muscle tone. Almost all the yoga postures consists of placing your body in positions requiring muscular contractions against the resistance of your body weight or gravity.
