However cellulite knows no age or size limitations. You can be a size 2 and have cellulite. Why is that? What is cellulite and how can you get rid of it?
Here to shed a little light is Sally, Founder of Planet Shark Fitness giving you tips and tricks.
Banish Cellulite With The Right Foods, Exercises and Hydration!
Founder of Planet Shark Fitness / Certified Fitness Trainer & Nutritionist
Since cellulite affects 90% of women of all shapes and sizes, a frequent question I’m asked is how to reduce it– if not eliminate it completely. While there are no magic potions and liposuction can actually make it worse, you can dramatically improve its appearance and possibly banish it for good via proper nutrition, exercise and hydration.
In order to fully understand this process, it’s not only crucial to know what cellulite is, it’s of equal importance to know what might have caused it. In simple terms, cellulite is a collection of fat that pushes the connective tissue beneath the skin causing ‘dimpled’ changes in its appearance. Cellulite is far more common in women than men because of differences in the way fat, muscle and connective tissue are distributed under the skin (not to mention hormones) . While it’s also a bit more common among anyone who is overweight, many slim women also have cellulite too.
Now that you know what cellulite is, the following theories may provide some insight as to why you got it in the first place:
• Hormonal factors such as excessive amounts of estrogen, insulin, noradrenaline, thyroid hormones, and prolactin.
• Genetics including gender, race, slow metabolism, distribution of fat just underneath the skin, and circulatory insufficiency.
• Diets that are too low in fiber, antioxidants, micro-nutrients and proper hydration plus high in unhealthy fats, simple carbs and sodium.
• Lifestyle factors such as too little exercise and too much sitting, smoking and chronic stress.
• Certain clothing may also play a role in that underwear with tight elastic across the buttocks which limits blood flow. Because poor circulation is a contributor, avoiding tight clothing, under-garments and even socks may be beneficial.
