The fight against cellulite: Make it count

Cellulite affects the physical aspect of an increasing number of people and is not related to age, gender or weight. The hard truth is you can be thin and still have cellulite. Fighting it can even be more difficult than trying to lose weight, but if you plan on doing it, you should at least be aware of the guidelines you should be following so that your efforts will be rewarded.

How do you beat cellulite?



A healthy diet, rich in fiber and with sufficient intake of vitamins, will keep your body free of toxins, provide antioxidants and burn fat tissue. Your meals are recommended to include chicken, fish, seafood, salads, fruits, milk, cheese, yogurt, and whole grains. Avoid sausages, margarine (replace it with butter and olive oil), sweets (moderate amounts of chocolate are allowed), fast food, and fried food.


Drinking plenty of fluids is mandatory in the fight against cellulite. You should drink at least 2 liters of fluid per day, including a cup of milk, a cup of coffee, one glass of freshly squeezed juice and the rest should come from tea or water.

There are a few teas with anti-cellulite effects that you can opt for, such as green tea, yarrow tea or elder tea. However, you should not exceed the daily recommended quantity as indicated on the product’s label. For example, green tea contains caffeine, and it’s not advisable to drink more than 2 cups daily, and certainly not in the evening.

Alcohol and smoking are to be avoided or at least reduced to a minimum because your goal is to detoxify your body, and these unhealthy habits have exactly the opposite effect.


One of the reasons for cellulite appearance is a sedentary lifestyle, so engaging in regular physical activity is one of the most important steps to get rid of it. The most effective types of exercise against cellulite are best described as intensive, in other words, those which don’t involve static or slow movements.

Here are a few from the top: running, swimming, high-impact aerobics (e.g.: step aerobics), and other intensive sports, such as football, basketball, and water polo.

Anti Cellulite Massage

Massage & Cosmetic Treatments

Depending on the severity of your case, you may wish to try various treatments, such as massages, wraps, and others, at home or in professional massage parlors and SPAs. Even if you find one that works for you, without respecting the other rules, the results could be diminished or just temporary.


A sauna is a great way of cleansing your body of toxins, and at the same time, it improves circulation and respiratory functions. It works even better if you take it after exercise, as it contributes to post-workout muscle recovery. Other positive effects of sauna are healthier skin, enhanced immunity, and increased stress resistance. To receive the multiple benefits of taking a sauna, 1-3 sessions per week are recommended.
