Does the skin on your thighs look like the surface of the moon? Crated and pitted, dimpled and rippled? Do you have a cottage cheese butt? If you answered yes to both of these questions then you, my friend, are plagued with cellulite.
Cellulite is fat in which fluids and toxins get trapped in the connective tissue between muscles and joints. When the trapped fluids and toxins harden they become cellulite. Cellulite accumulates most often in the thighs (known as saddlebags or thunder thighs), on the buttocks, in the breasts and abdominal area. It does not really have a negative effect on your health; but it certainly indicates that you could lead a healthier lifestyle.
Women are more susceptible to development of cellulite than men and there are several causes contributing to the formation of cellulite. Cellulite can be caused by genetics; some people are born more predisposed to develop cellulite than others. A poor diet that is high in fats, especially animal fats and saturated fats, can pack on the cellulite. People who lead a sedentary lifestyle almost always have cellulite on their bodies. Lack of exercise causes poor circulation which does not allow the blood to wash toxins from blocked connective tissues. Drinking eight to ten large classes of water per day flushes away toxins so they can not build up in the connective tissue and hardened into cellulite.
In addition to a low calorie, low fat diet, high in complex carbohydrates to provide your body with the energy and protein to help build lean muscle mass, a simple exercise program will help you get rid of cellulite.
