Cellulite is not a medical condition or an aesthetic mutiny perpetrated by your thighs. Itís just excess fat that weíve relegated as unsightly. Not all women have cellulite. All women of course have fat, but cellulite is simply excess fat bursting through connective tissues holding fat layer in place.
Mitchel Goldman, MD, an associate clinical professor at University of California at San Diego regularly informs dermatological community about cellulite treatments. On one such occasion in 2002, at American Academy of Dermatology's summer scientific meeting in New York, Dr. Goldman offered bleak hope for women with fat dimples while asserting that there is no ďcureĒ for cellulite.
Perhaps Dr. Goldman has never visited a womenís figure competition, Goldís Gym or any placed packed with women who know how to take care of their bodies. If he did frequent such places, Dr. Goldman would find that there is indeed a three-step remedy for cellulite which follows:
1.Eat a macronutrient rich diet that maintains your ideal body weight; 2.Exercise at least 60 minutes daily to promote circulation and increase skinís elasticity and tone; and 3.Do resistance training to increase muscle size, boost fat metabolism, and increase structural support for skinís fat layer.
I assure you that women who pose as models for cellulite creams and services already do these things.
Notwithstanding, Dr. Goldman rests convinced that "Foods really do not have an impact on whether a woman has cellulite or not." He further doubts dietary interventions by stating, ďEven a woman who radically changes her diet from high fat foods to low fat foods would still have cellulite. Consumers should be wary of any diet plan that claims to reduce appearance of cellulite -- it is simply not credible."
So how do women in advertisements for cellulite creams get rid of their cellulite? Not by using a cream, of course. One may answer that Adobe Photoshop editing cleverly erases smiling fat dimples. Thatís not always case. Women can and do shrink their cellulite bubbles using a sensible diet and exercise program.
1.Eating to eliminate cellulite Enjoy five to six meals/snacks a day. Frequent eating keeps blood sugar level balanced so that your body does not resort to fat storage. This predictable food intake also keeps metabolism burning calories at a consistent rate.
2. Strategic exercising for cellulite elimination A study issued by National Academies' Institute of Medicine in 2002 recommends an hour of cumulative exercise each day to maintain a healthy weight. Cellulite is an aesthetic issue and not a grave health threat. So while climbing stairs here, and washing car there, may help your heart, it does nothing for cellulite.
If you want to get rid of cellulite, you need to exercise for at least 45 to 60 minutes consistently to reap fat burning benefits. Yet, you need not exhaust yourself.
