Overcome Cellulite and drop two sizes in ten weeks

Article submission Wednesday 1st July 2009

Eight out of ten women in the age bracket 25-45 have cellulite. Cellulite in simple words is just plain old fat, and gives that orange peel effect on thighs and tyres on tummy and the key to minimizing it is to drop the kilos. But how you loose those kilos matters: crash dieting can actually make cellulite worse by reducing the skins elasticity, making more of those little puckers noticeable. Gradual weight loss (to better preserve skin’s suppleness and reduce fat) accompanied by targeted muscle development, which firms and smoothes underlying tissue, is the most effective cellulite solution.


You must have seen people who can eat anything under the sun but are able to keep the kilos away while some eat measured amounts of food but can’t avoid those piling on the kilos. Metabolism is what the game is all about and healthy metabolism helps you loose weight faster! The body processes nutrients to grow, develop and maintain, all this requires energy and calories are burnt for the purpose. This is metabolism in short. A sluggish metabolism can mean problems ranging from slow growth to mental lethargy, obesity and even lack of interest in routine activities. If that sounds too sad worry not, Metabolism can be boosted through exercise and through food.


Here are few tips you could use:

Get more Fibre
Stock up on wholegrain vegetable and fruits. Unlike refined foods which get easily digested, your body has to work hard to break down and digest fibre. In the process it uses up extra energy and this is why fruits and vegetables, particularly raw ones, help boost metabolism.

Drink more water
Staying well hydrated keeps you energised and helps metabolism.


Add dairy
Besides helping maintain bone mass, dairy products may be exactly what you need to crank up your metabolism and lose tummy fat. The magic ingredient is calcium which serves as a switch that tell you body’s cells to burn fat faster.

Go for proteins
Dieters who consumes 30% of their calories from proteins preserved their muscles while trying to loose weight while the ones who did not have proteins their muscles were broken down by the body to get the daily requirement.


Sip on green tea
A Japanese study found that people who drank green tea daily lost 2-4 kilos after 3 months. Without altering their diet. Green tea contain catechins, which may trigger weight loss by increasing your body’s metabolism, it’s a good substitute when you have those typical cravings.
