What’s the word for it – cottage cheese? Nobody wants to witness this around the hips and tummy! Cellulite is the topic of the day. Nearly everybody has dealt with it, whether they are thin or fat. Here are a couple of ways to help you to abolish it.

What’s Cellulite?

Cellulite looks like tiny dimples on the skin. Unfortunately, it’s true it does look an awful lot like cottage cheese. It’s actually fat deposits just beneath the surface of the skin.

Collagen and elastin fibers create a network just below the surface of the skin. They give your skin strength and structure. Firm skin equates to fibers that are linked together closely and the fat is being kept where it needs to be.

Aging and weight gain can stretch or weaken these important fibers. The resulting problem is fat getting loose and poking out, creating a dimpled appearance. Most often cellulite makes it’s appearance on the arms, thighs, belly and hips.

How can you get this rampant fat back where it belongs? The best way is to get rid of it. Lowering the size of these fat cells will help to tighten and tone your skin. This is where you start.

Cellulite Exercises

The larger the muscle, the more fat that is burned. These are the same muscles that are likely to show dimples.

* Squats  Good for strengthening the quadriceps, glutes and hamstrings. Do not be overly cautious about heavy weights. These muscles can handle them and you won’t likely end up looking like a musclebuilder.

* Lunges  As you do this you place one leg in front of the other. It focuses on the hips, glutes and front of the thighs.

* Abductor exercises  We frequently dismiss the fact that our legs have a side. That is until we put on the swimsuit in Springtime. Exercises where the leg is moved away from the body are good for targeting the outer thighs. By performing these in a pool, you will gain balance and see a lot additional results.

Dietary Alterations

Working out helps to incinerate fat deposits within the body. To continue this trend it is essential to lower the amount of fat that is consumed daily.

* Fresh fruit and veggies  These foods are great for your body and delicious, as well! They carry antioxidants and likewise nutrients that the body requires to function properly. Consuming them will help your body to be more effective at abolishing toxins which have been hindering your metabolism.

* Whole grains  Great source of fiber. Fiber is great for the digestive system, as well. It even helps to abolish fat from your diet. Consuming whole grains will keep your blood sugar stable and you won’t crave sweet snacks, as much.

Are you trying to get rid of your cellulite? There are plenty of fad diets out there, but a good diet and exercising is really the most healthy and effective way to go about it.
