Cellulite is a condition that affects almost all women. It has nothing to do with being overweight because even very thin models are complaining about it. It is mostly caused from hormones and also passed down to you from your mother and grandmother. There really is no escaping from cellulite but you can fight it the best you can. Your eating habits and activity level determine how severe your situation would be. Here are a few tips you can take to help you minimize the orange peel effect. First and foremost exercise, nutritious food, and lots of water.

Exercise is probably the answer to all fat related problems. Having lean meat on your body works as a continuous fat burner and keeps your skin tight. You might notice cellulite on many beautiful actresses but how many times have you ever noticed this problem on athletes. How many famous runners, tennis players or professional swimmers have you seen with cellulite? Probably none. That’s because they are always training and working out. This is proof that working out does work.

The second most important factor is what you put in your body. If you eat wholesome and nutritious food then your body will reflect on that. On the other hand if you are eating twinkies for breakfast and a fattening lunch and dinner then you can guess what the results would be. The best thing you can do for yourself is to eat green leafy vegetables as much as you can especially if they replace empty calorie snacks. Vegetables are full of nutrition with very little calories. Whole grains are also recommended to replace white bread and rice to help reduce cellulite.

Water is also extremely important to purify your body and your skin. It cleans your system including your skin and rids the toxins that contribute to cellulite. Try to drink your recommended amount of water which is 6-8 glasses of water. If you find it hard to drink so much water then you can supplement it with fresh juices or even soup. They are all hydrating liquids. Coffee, soda and other diuretics are not considered liquids because they do the opposite, they will dry you up and dehydrate you.

It’s true that the majority of women have cellulite but it is also true that most of them aren’t truly fighting it either. If you are really determined you can defeat cellulite. Just make sure you follow all the tips above which are regular exercise, diet and water water water.
