By now, as an avid reader of The Black Purple blog, you know that one of the best ways to improve the appearance of your cellulite is to eat a healthier diet. Not only do healthy eating habits give your skin the vitamins and nutrients it needs for better tone and appearance, but a healthy, balanced diet will also help you to lose weight, which can also improve the appearance of your cellulite.
Needless to say, you can find endless ‘healthy’ eating habits online, in magazines and from just about every family member and friend you have. Unfortunately, many long-standing eating habits that were once considered healthy might not be so healthy after all.
Here are just a few eating habits you might have started, thinking they were healthy, but they may be anything but.
1.Using Artificial Sweeteners
Artificial sweeteners can trick you body into thinking it has eaten something sweet. When your body realizes that the promised calories aren’t there, it can force you to eat more. Artificial sweeteners also play havoc with your blood sugar levels and increase your chance of diabetes. And it’s not just the artificial sweeteners you add to your diet, but those that are used in diet and low-sugar drinks and foods too.
2.You Cut Down on What You Eat When You Plan to Go Out Later
But this tactic can have the complete opposite effect than the one you want. When you head out on an empty stomach to a social situation where there will be lots of tempting foods and drink, there’s a good chance that your hunger pangs will make you over indulge.
