Cellulite is one of the most unpleasant cosmetic problems, which often turn to a fitness coach. The most common habitat of the so-called “orange peel” is the thighs, buttocks, stomach and arms. It is in these zones in women is usually deposited excess fat. Often unsightly bumps and irregularities appear in the process of losing weight when the amount of subcutaneous fatty tissue begins to noticeably decrease. And even very tiny girls often complain about sagging skin in problem areas.
Cellulite may seem a local issue, so many are trying to get rid of it exercises for spot study of muscles of hips, buttocks, abdomen and other areas where there is “orange peel”. Flexion and extension of the legs in the gym, squats and lunges, swings and abduction of the hips, twisting crunches, push-UPS — you can do any exercises that cause you to work muscles in problem areas. Usually all exercises are performed with a large number of repetitions with low weight resistance, until the burning sensation in the muscles. It is believed that burning promotes fat burning in the study area, and hence reduction of cellulite.
How does it work? Strength exercises with lots of reps cause an increased blood flow to muscles (to neutralize the formed in the result of lactic acid). Improves blood circulation and nutrition of the surrounding tissues. During exercise also increases body temperature and actively excreted liquid. Visually cellulite bumps can be reduced, because fat cells hold a lot of water. And if you connect to training massage problem areas, the effect may be even more pronounced.
However, cellulite is not really a local problem. To fight effectively, you need to understand the reasons for its formation. Adipose tissue accumulates the products of decomposition of substances (including toxic) and interstitial fluid. And eliminate excess occurs via the lymph. The cellulite formation is almost always associated with impaired circulation of lymph in the subcutaneous adipose tissue.
This implies that you first need to improve the lymph flow. The movement of lymph takes place from the periphery (limbs) to the center (heart). Actively Contracting muscles contribute to the backflow of lymph. The muscles of the foot and lower leg play a most important role. Therefore, they should be given special attention and regularly to train. The pressure required for movement of lymph through the vessels creates contraction and relaxation of the diaphragm. The diaphragm can also be trained!
Training the diaphragm is the breathing exercises. Correct diaphragmatic breathing is a deep breath uniformly “fill” the entire abdominal cavity and chest. And active exhalation, which involved the pelvic floor muscles and the abdominal muscles. If you breathe correctly, ribs should actively move to the sides, expanding your chest to breath.
Exercises for the feet include bending and straightening of the foot, rotating it inwards and outwards, and various upgrades to the socks, the activation of the arch of the foot, flexion and extension of the fingers.
Healthy eating and drinking regime will also help to reduce the swelling of tissues and get rid of cellulite. A few simple tips:
- You should try to eat only natural products.
- To reduce the consumption of salt, smoked meats and preservatives.
- To unsubscribe from TRANS fats (margarine, confectionery fats, various sauces).
- Drink plenty of fluids during the day (about 30 ml per 1 kg of body weight).

Alexander Filimonov, a doctor-nutritionist
To date, the solution to rid the cellulite in the weaker sex actively inflated by the media, social networks, pseudo-experts in the field of weight loss, sellers of special equipment and “magic pills”. But what really solve the problem? Is it possible to get rid of lipodystrophy (a terrible word that doctors use) once and for all?
You should first understand what constitutes this process. The appearance of cellulite occurs for a number of reasons: eating disorder (for those with a sweet tooth), a sedentary lifestyle and loss of muscle tone, loss of skin elasticity. If we consider the subcutaneous fat, you will notice increased fat cells, a large quantity of water, and stretched interlobular septum, and all of which affects the appearance of tubercles on the body. Accordingly, the first paragraph in the fight against this imperfection is compliance with dietary measures.
Creating the deficit of calories, exclusion from the diet of simple carbohydrates (flour and sweet), add a large amount of fiber in the form of vegetables, and easily digested proteins. Weight loss through proper nutrition — the first step to getting rid of the adverse events. Another important factor are training with which we will be creating a calorie deficit, as spending energy and give the muscles by training them, creating an elastic form. Excess weight is deposited there, where weak muscles. The feature of training is the alternating strength exercises with interval cardio training.
Many have a misconception about the benefits of massage as an effective remedy for getting rid of the drawback. Just think, by acting on muscle and fat from the outside, the therapist tries to bring your body in tone, and in some magical way to force fat to disappear. If you don’t do any muscle work, which allows to conclude that during the massage the therapist is losing weight itself. Of course, the massage creates a cosmetic effect, giving elasticity to the skin, but no more. We only straighten fatty tissue and skin, removing excess liquid, but the fat cell and in it the fat will not disappear. It is logical to assume that any kind of wraps are useless to combat the “orange peel”, as acting mechanically from the outside on the muscles at rest, it is impossible to influence complex biochemical processes in the body. Beauty, health and freshness of the skin — the main purpose of such cosmetic measures.
What foods to eat to avoid cellulite:
- Meat (lean beef, Turkey fillet, rabbit, chicken breast fillet).
- Lean fish: hake, pink salmon, chum salmon, cod, Pollock, perch, pangasius, tilapia, cod, tuna.
- Seafood, squid and shrimp.
- Cheese (Adyghe).
- The only fresh vegetables: salads, cucumber, celery, zucchini (grilled), cabbage, spinach, onions, tomatoes, peppers.
- Eggs with the yolk, not more than two per day.
- Brussels sprout and cauliflower, and broccoli.
