As much as you would love to shed all the excess fat that clings your body, perhaps you should give fat its due, and accept that you do need a certain amount of it to stay healthy. It’s when your fat situation gets out of hand that you have a problem. Of all the visible problems that excess fat brings, cellulite, the masses of dimpled fat that cling to your thighs and your behind, have to be about the most objectionable to anyone. Now before you berate yourself too much for allowing the fat to get as far as it has, here’s something you should be aware of – it’s just a part of the aging process. Hollywood actresses who charge top dollar, have cellulite; models who depend on staying in shape for their next paycheck have cellulite. There’s no way to completely be rid of it. It’s not your fault. That said, here are some weight loss tips to help you focus on getting rid of as much of it as you can manage, naturally.
This first one should come as a surprise on our list of weight-loss tips for cellulite. Who would have expected it? Water happens to be one of the best ingredients of a great weight-loss regime. Water is the cleanser. Drink your eight glasses of plain water a day, preferably cold, and you should give your kidneys enough ammo to flush the toxins in your system out. So you’re thinking, “Great! I’m cleaner with water. But why should toxins have anything to do with how much cellulite I have?” As hard as it is to believe, cellulite accumulates faster in a body that struggles with impurities.
Did you always wish that you could find some weight-loss tips that could be pleasurable as well as effective? How about signing up for a lymphatic massage? One reason why we deposit fat around the thighs and our middle is that our lymphatic drainage system often doesn’t work as well as it should. Getting a trained masseur to give you a good rub down all around your cellulite-filled parts should help the lymphatic drainage system get back on its feet and drain the fat out.
So you know that you’re supposed to stay off the junk food and that you should watch what you eat. And that makes a lot of sense. You probably need advice that’s a little more specific though. Let’s get started with that. Try to eat more seafood – fish, in particular. The kind of fat fish puts in your body, is really good for you. Especially if you grill or bake the fish rather than frying it. And make sure that there’s lot of V8 in your diet everyday. The toxin cleansing qualities of water we talked about? They are a whole lot more effective when you add in the micronutrients that vegetables give you.
