Detoxify Your Fat Cells by Changing Your Nutritional Habits
As we know the best way to get rid of these harmful toxins which play a huge part in the development of cellulite is to detox.
The primary aim of a detox is to cleanse the body inside out and flush out all of the harmful toxins in the process allowing our body to function like it’s meant to.
As mentioned above some of the foods we eat bring toxins into the body which heavily influences the appearance of cellulite.
The first and most important step to removing cellulite from the body is just to remove unnatural processed foods from your diet.
So ditch the sweets, chocolates, fried food and fizzy drinks for healthy organic natural fruit and vegetables, good quality carbs and lean meat. Drink plenty of water too! This will aid the detoxification process and help to flush out toxins from the body.
Get hydrated, drink plenty of water – about 1 litre for every 3.5 stone you weigh.
One thing we need to remember is that these toxins don’t only enter our bodies via the food we eat.
Toxins also come from alcohol, perfume, make up, cleaning products and much more, so aim to use environmentally friendly toxic free products where possible.
Cellulite is more common in the lower body area. There are over 90 muscles in your lower body all waiting to be strengthened and smoothed over!
As mentioned earlier, pills and creams don’t address cellulite at the root, exercising will.
Working the areas efficiently where cellulite exists will help to improve circulation, smooth out and support the skin around the cellulite; this will reduce the appearance and give a better look.
A well thought out balanced exercise programme will really help to blast away the cellulite.
Mixing some quality cardio training with resistance training is the best way, again to increase the circulation to the area.
You need to really focus on the areas where cellulite exists. A shoulder press isn’t going to help the cellulite on your thighs. Exercises like squats, glute bridges and lunges will – indirectly.
(Please note: I’m not advocating “spot reduction”. (spot reduction is where people aim to reduce belly fat by doing sit up’s and bum fat by doing squats etc, this doesn’t work, fat is taken from all over the body, not evenly either).
The exercise is there to promote better blood flow and oxygenation of the tissues and stimulate the surrounding muscles.
To give yourself the best chance aim to exercise 3-5 times a week, it is also important to rest your body between exercise sessions.
Simply massaging the worst affected areas can help to reduce the appearance of cellulite, this is why some creams seem to work a little, a basic massage oil will be fine and much cheaper. You don’t have to worry about any fancy spa treatments or spending loads of money, you can do a lot of the things yourself or get your partner/friend to help, I’m sure they’ll be more than happy!
Toxins are eliminated from our body through the lymphatic system; applying pressure to the muscles stimulates the blood and lymph flow, this then helps the lymphatic system expel the stored away hard to reach toxins from our body.
Massage with circular motions and ensure you don’t press too hard, this can lead to bruising.
Ensure you massage all of the affected areas, if you aren’t comfortable in doing this yourself then you can easily get a professional massage which shouldn’t cost too much.
So there are my top 3 tips for blasting away cellulite from the body, if you apply all of these tips properly the cellulite should disappear over the coming months and years, you should start to see improvements in as little as a couple of weeks.
Remember the longer the problem has existed the longer it will take to go away, so be patient if needed and if you don’t do it, I’m afraid to say it will only get worse in the long run.
Doing nothing is THE worst thing you can do. Avoid progressing through the levels, nip it in the bud as soon as possible is the best strategy.
If you have read this article then that’s a good first step, now take some action by implementing some of the tips!
Health and fitness is a way of life, and it’s a great way of life too.
