Fat and cellulite reduction

Cellulite, also known as gynoid lipodystrophy, is often thought of as fat. But that is not quite accurate. Cellulite itself is not fat; fat is just a component of what causes cellulite. To put it aptly, cellulite is a possible manifestation of fat.

A host of factors contribute to cellulite. Excessive fat is apparently a cause of cellulite, but it does not inevitably cause cellulite. Subcutaneous fat that lies just under the skin is a major contributing factor to the appearance of cellulite.

Fortunately, you can take some simple steps to reduce the appearance of cellulite. Our lifestyle is directly related to the health of our skin. In many cases, the causes of cellulite can be traced back to lifestyle.

Though people of all weights can be affected by cellulite, losing weight might help reduce the appearance of this skin issue. There is no guarantee that losing weight will remove cellulite, but maintaining a healthy weight through diet and regular exercise can certainly help. As you lose weight, there will be less fat beneath the uneven connective tissue to create the dimpled appearance. If you begin a weight-loss program, you might begin to see a slight reduction in cellulite within about two months. Regular exercise is a must if you want to maintain a lower weight.

Moreover, there are special forms of exercise that help reduce the appearance of cellulite. Opt for those types of exercise that provide intense mechanical stimulation to your fat cells, collagen cells and blood vessel cells. They will lead to reduced fat cell number, more firmness and improved circulation and lymphatic drainage. This process will improve the appearance of cellulite. In most cases, mechanical stimulation is more intense during high intensity training.

Diet plays an important role in this regard. The subcutaneous fat is what makes up cellulite. So a plant-based diet can potentially decrease cellulite.  Natural resources

That are used to treat cellulite include fish oils, evening primrose or borage oils, grape seed extract, Soya lecithin Ginkgo biloba, sweet red clover extract and iron oxide.

Losing weight helps reduce cellulite. There are two good reasons to reduce the consumption of dietary fat when you are trying to lose weight. Firstly, more weight can be gained eating fat than eating the same amount of carbohydrates and proteins.

Secondly, individuals who are overweight produce more of the enzyme lipoprotein lipase. This enzyme takes the dietary sources and stores it in human fat cells.

A research conducted by Bowman Gray School of Medicine concludes that Even a combination of proper diet and exercise will not yield results in less than two months. Yet, getting results in two months is significant because accumulation of cellulite takes place over a period of years.
