Cellulite, how to get rid of it!

Cellulite, how to get rid of it!

We all hate it - so how do we get rid of it?! Firstly, we need to understand what it is. Cellulite isn't just caused by excess fat... cellulite is also caused trapped toxins, poor circulation and a lack of strong healthy blood to carry toxins out of the bloodstream (to then be excreted by the body).Have you ever seen slim girls with cellulite and wondered how on earth THEY have cellulite when they don't have an inch of fat on them?! It's often an indication of an unhealthy lifestyle and/or diet.

In a nutshell, cellulite can be reduced and often cleared by:

  1. Reducing weight
  2. Changing foods you consume
  3. Strengthening blood and circulation

You have to be willing to work with your body to kick cellulite out. You can't expect it to vanish by itself whilst still drinking diet coke! We've created a list of foods to avoid, that will all contribute to cellulite production.
