Well, much I like I like to wage war against the fitness industry of con men and myths, I'll help you wage war against this evil curse known as CELLULITE.
1) What is Cellulite?
Cellulite is dimples in your fat. That's it.
It's nothing more than fat under your skin that's pushing out and creates the ugly cellulite look.
2) How to Get Rid of Cellulite
Get rid of the fat, you'll get rid of the cellulite.
Yep, that's it. That simple, yet that difficult for many.
3) Don't use Liposuction
Liposuction only sucks out the fat, not the cellulite underneath. And will actually make it look worse.
The horror stories of post lypo work will be an article unto itself.
4) The Cellulite Industry wants to Rip You Off
There is no evidence that Cellulite Creams, Rollers, or whatever else work. There is scientific proof that they can have harmful side effects. All Risk-No Gain.
The only guarantee I can give you about any of these products is they will cost money.
5) Once Again, The Only Cure is to Nutrition and Exercise
Remember what I said earlier about the only cure is to lose the fat, I meant it.
6) Cellulite Will Be More Prominent in Some Areas, Thus Will Be Harder to Fight
You can't choose which part of your body you lose fat from. You'll have to lose all the body fat necessary for you to lose that fat from that area, the area that has the the Cellulite.
7) You're a Victim of Your DNA
Like almost everything in fitness, some are more genetically inclined to have it than others. So some will have much more fat and no cellulite, while others can be relatively lean and still have some cellulite.
8) Cellulite is Immortal
It never truly goes away, just harder to see when you lose the weight.
9) Women are Screwed
Once again, women are screwed in the fitness department as women predominantly put on more cellulite than men.
10) Just Add Bad Habits
10) Think of Cellulite as plant. If you'd like it to grow just add bad diets, fad diets, no sleep, smoking, etc.
As if you needed another reason to not do the above. Remember as I said before, Cellulite is an immortal monster. Don't feed the beast.
11) Massage Won't Cure Cellulite
You may have heard massage therapy can make make cellulite diminish.
It's true, but only temporarily, then it goes back to normal.
Chose massage therapy for all the other benefits, not for cellutlite.
12) Lasers and Science Can't Help You
"Can't the latest research and newest lasers destroy cellulite?" Maybe one day. But today is not that day.
Like I said many times, the only cure is to GET RID OF THE FAT.
Cellulite is a lot like stubborn body fat, slow metabolism, small body parts you wish were bigger, etc. It's just your genetic make up. You can choose to make it better or worse, but basically it's part of you and how you deal with it. Accept defeat and let it takeover, or fight the good fight and keep it in it's place. Yeah, some people have it easier, but you have it easier in other departments.
That's it for this week. Keep sending those questions in and yours may become the next blog post.
