CELLULITE: what is it and how do I fix it?
👆🏽cellulite is little clumps of the fat that accumulate near your skin layer within firmer connective tissue- these fat deposits give the dimpled or "cottage cheese" appearance, usually on the thighs, butt and/or stomach. 🏃🏾♀️regular exercise does not "cure" cellulite per se but it can prevent it or minimize the appearance of it.
🙋🏽some regular tips I give people to reduce the appearance of cellulite is to make the connective tissue surrounding it more firm. This can be done through:
2️⃣using weights and dynamic movements
3️⃣ drinking more fluids (namely water) -this will flush out waste products from cells as well as remove anything that may be preventing the burning of subcutaneous fat tissue (that comprises cellulite)
4️⃣eating more omega-3 fatty acids. (Salmon, fish oil, etc) Omega-3 fatty acids reduce appetite and low-level inflammation as well as repair and strengthen skin tissues. This in turn decreases the build-up of harmful toxins in blood vessels and improves circulation.
