When I was a kid, my mom had to explain cellulite to me. She probably didn’t want to, but I was as curious as any kid. And when I saw plump skin hanging off my mom’s thighs, I simply had to ask her what it was.
Of course, I understand now that it wasn’t a polite question to ask your own mother. Nobody wants someone to point their cellulite out to them. They especially don’t want their daughter to point at it and ask “MOM. WHAT’S THAT?!”
Cellulite is defined by the dictionary as “persistent subcutaneous fat causing dimpling of the skin, especially on women’s hips and thighs.”
It doesn’t sound nice, and it isn’t especially nice to look at. It is, however, something that happens. It doesn’t matter if you’re a regular woman or a million dollar pop star, cellulite befalls us all if we’re not careful.
The good news, though, is that adopting healthy eating habits can actually reduce cellulite and restore your legs to their former glories. After all, we are what we eat, and when we eat the wrong foods, pesky fat will start to deposit itself on our skin.
Here are a few changes you should make to your diet in order to beat cellulite:
Stick To A Schedule
Eating your meals and snacks according to a schedule is important for training your brain so that it knows when to expect food and when not to expect food.
Why is this important? When your brain doesn’t have a schedule, it means that you’re more likely to gorge on snacks whenever you feel like it. You’ll be out of control.
When your brain has a schedule, it’s more likely to stick to it so that you only become hungry at certain times. Subsequently, you’ll be less inclined to snack at random hours, and will therefore stick to a stable weight.
It’s like a cat or a dog. Because you always feed them at certain times, they know intuitively when it’s time to wake up and ask for food.
Be A Vegetarian Once A Week
If you’re not already a vegetarian, I’m not suggesting that you have to become a full-on convert. But going vegetarian just once a week can help to shift the fat from your legs.
People who eat more meat are more likely to have cellulite and belly fat than those who avoid it altogether.
If possible, go vegetarian for a few weeks a week! Vegetables are rich in all kinds of micronutrients that will help you shift cellulite over the long term.….READ MORE ON THE NEXT PAGE
