Eat Right and Avoid Cellulite ... or at Least Lower the Risk of Developing It

Eat Right and Avoid Cellulite ... or at Least Lower the Risk of Developing It
Cellulite. The very word makes many of us want to run, hide or at least reach for long pants. Cellulite develops when deposits of fat poke through connective tissue, resulting in a dimpled or uneven appearance. Cellulite can happen to anyone - male, female, young, old, heavy or thin (yes, even thin people can have cellulite), and it is hard to get rid of once it develops. Learning about cellulite can equip you with strategies to get rid of it, or at least improve its appearance. One way you can help reduce your chance of developing cellulite is to eat a healthy diet.

Eat More Fruits and Vegetables. Eating more fruits and vegetables can help reduce the risk of developing cellulite because these foods contain high levels of antioxidants and phytonutrients that support healthy tissue and collagen production and protect cells from damage. Antioxidants can especially help because they protect against free radicals and other environmental pollutants that can damage cells and lead to cellulite formation.

Include Lean Proteins. Add lean meats to your diet, including chicken and fish, to reduce your risk of developing cellulite. Avoid meats with a lot of fat, as consuming fat and other forms of connective tissue can increase the risk of developing cellulite. Nuts and seeds are also a good source of healthy protein.
