8 Tips To Prevent And Get Rid Of Cellulite - Articles Surfing
Some people who have cellulite go to drastic measure like having plastic surgery to get rid of it. There are other, less invasive ways of ridding your body of cellulite. These same tips can also be used to prevent cellulite from forming.
A detoxification diet is the single most important way to reduce or prevent cellulite. What you ingest always shows up on your body, and by putting only good food into your body, only good will show. Fresh fruits and vegetables are important foods to eat, while black tea, iced tea, coffee and alcohol are things to avoid at all cost.
Canned or processed foods are something else to avoid. Water retention greatly influences the formation of cellulite, and canned foods have too much sodium salt with aids in retention. Lactose, the sugar found in milk and other dairy products, can give you the same effect. It must be eaten in moderation. Instead, eat yogurt and cheese made with reduced lactose, and drink soy milk, which contains no lactose.
Another factor related to cellulite formation is fat. Fat in foods contributes to the increase of cells that produces adipose tissue, which leads to weight gain. Regular exercise can combat these things.
