What is cellulite?

Cellulite is the dimpled appearance of the skin that occurs when fat deposits sit just below the skin's surface. This is a common problem, particularly for women. The thighs, buttocks and stomach are the most common areas where cellulite builds up.

Gender is the number one factor, as most people with cellulite are woman. Hormones, such as estrogen, are believed to play a pivotal role in cellulite development.

How do I get rid of it?

Limit Sugary drinks and alcohol

Eat at least .5 g protein per lb. of body weight per day

Drink 8-10 glasses of water

Eliminate processed foods

Get enough sleep

Focus more on weighted exercises & high intensity spurts of cardio versus longer, steady state cardio exercises

Are there exercises that help?



Reverse Lunges

...but be sure to do cardio in between!
