So, You Want To Get Rid Of Your Cellulite?

Posted Aug 24 2008 7:31pm

It is definitely the dreaded monster of the thighs, stomach and butt---CELLULITE! Exactly what is cellulite (commonly called cottage cheese)? Cellulite is actually collections of fat just underneath ( subcutaneous fat ) the skin which causes it to dimple, pucker up or lump up.

There are many factors that determine whether you have cellulite---your genes, gender, skin thickness and amount of body fat all play a part. What you need to know is that there are no quick fixes for cellulite (despite what some commercials promote)! Some treatments such as liposuction and mesotherapy may give you some TEMPORARY relief from your cellulite. Liposuction is actually meant to remove deep fat tissue ( visceral fat ) and not cellulite.

So, what should you do if you have cellulite? Since health should be your main concern, REDUCE YOUR OVERALL BODY FAT ! This will, in turn, help to reduce your subcutaneous and visceral fat. The best way to burn body fat is interval cardio exercise and weight training . It's the same true story---exercise for health and fitness and you will also look your best!
