Three Foods That Reduce Cellulite
By Anna Jimenez, Editorial Video Director |
Women who have fat on their bodies, likely have stubborn cellulite. That's why 90 percent of us are said to contain the dimply, unsightly, annoying stuff that never, ever seems to go away. It's genetic, and therefore, not entirely our fault. Feel better? Yeah, we don't either. So what's a skirt-loving woman to do?
Really, the best natural way to get rid of cellulite is to reduce your overall body fat through exercise and diet. And while there is no magic pill or hidden secret to the best and easiest way to get rid of cellulite, there are certain foods that are said to diminish it.
Author of The Beauty Detox Foods and celebrity nutritionist Kimberly Snyder says there are "beauty foods" that help reduce cellulite and get you a bikini-ready bod. Here is what to start munching on:
These are powerhouse oats. They are soluble and insoluble fiber, making them super filling. They also won't spike our blood sugar. A study showed that the eating whole oats like these contributes to metabolic alterations that can reduce weight gain and therefore reduce future cellulite.
Not only is it delicious in guacamole, but it is also a great body cleanser. It helps remove heavy metals from the body (also called chelation) that collect in and engorge the fat cells in your body. When you clean out these heavy metals, your fat cells can function normally, reducing cellulite.
Oranges, lemons and grapefruits are super high in vitamin C, which rebuilds and repairs skin collagen. All that collagen prevents cellulite from being visible.
