Beat Cellulite through Diet how to Eliminate Cellulite

Doing away with cellulite is something about 90 percent of women are faced with. No one likes cellulite, so why not do everything you can to banish the dimples! The best defense against cellulite is exercise, but eating certain foods can make a difference as well. Here are some foods that you can eat to stop cellulite in its tracks.

Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate
Skin always looks more supple and smooth when it’s well-hydrated. Hydrate you skin by drinking a minimum of 8 ½ cups of water a day, as well as eating lots of water-rich foods. Great snacks that will hydrate you while you eat are:
– Celery, 1 cup = 2/5 cups water
– Cucumber, 1 cup = 2/5 cups water
– Grapes, 1 cup = ½ cup water
– Watermelon, 1 cup = 3/5 cup water
– Apples, 1 medium apple = 2/3 cup water

Eat bright!
Pick vegetables and fruit that have bright colors. The colors mean they’re rich in vitamin C, which prevents collagen breakdown, which prevents cellulite. While you’re at it, stay out of the sun – sun exposure breaks down collagen which will make cellulite more obvious. In addition to giving collagen a boost, vitamin C is proven to give you more energy while working out, which will ultimately help you burn more fat, build muscle and keep cellulite away long-term.
Some vitamin C veggies to try:
– Tomatoes
– Kiwifruit
– Oranges
– Papaya
– Red bell peppers

Go whole grain
Whenever you can, opt for whole grain. Their refined counterparts, such as sugary cereal, white bread and white rice are quickly converted into glucose (also known as sugar) which is more likely to be stored as fat rather than burned, which will then end its journey as cellulite. On the other hand, if you choose whole grains, such as brown rice, whole grain bread and brown rice, they don’t take the short trip to glucose. Plus, they’ll leave you feeling full longer, which will help you eat less. Try to make sure at least half of your carbs come from whole grains, such as:
– Brown rice, ½ cup cooked is one serving
– Bulgur, ½ cup cooked is one serving
– Oatmeal, ½ cup cooked is one serving
– Quinoa, ½ cup cooked is one serving
– Popcorn, 3 cups popped is one serving
