Consuming Fats: The Cellulite Link

Consuming Fats: The Cellulite Link - TheBlackPurple
There has been a misguided and over-propagated idea over the last decade that in order to lose weight, the food we consume must be low-fat or non-fat. The problem with following this advice lies in the fact that the human body requires a certain amount of certain types of fat in order to stay healthy and continue to function at an optimal level. Typically, we refer to fats as either “good fat” or “bad fat”. The easiest way to differentiate between the two is to think about “good fats” – mono or polyunsaturated fats –as occurring naturally in much of the oils, nuts, and fish we consume. “Bad fats” – saturated or “trans” fats – are found mostly in processed, “non-natural” foods, like chips, baked goods, fast food, and the list goes on. In the battle of the bulge and for an overall healthier lifestyle, it is best to “get back to basics” and choose raw foods, staying away from anything highly processed or genetically modified.

Getting the Fat Your Body Needs

To deprive your body of the good fats that it requires, will only do you a disservice in your attempts to lose weight. Good fats provide many benefits, and can be found most often in foods such as:

  • Oily fish, like as Salmon, Tuna or Trout
  • Avacados
  • Coconut, Olive or Rapeseed Oil
  • Nuts, like Almonds, Walnuts & Pistachios
  • Eggs
  • Flaxseed
Finding ways to incorporate these foods into your daily diet will not only assist in your weight loss efforts, but will lower cholesterol, which will improve your overall heart health, lessening your risk for heart attack or stroke.

More Benefits of Good Fats:

  • Curb junk food cravings
  • Better vitamin and antioxidant absorption
  • Build muscle
  • Burn fat

Detoxifying & Flushing With Fats: The Cellulite Angle

Again, the easiest way to look at how fat contributes to cellulite is to think in terms like “clean”, “natural”, “antioxidant-rich”, and so forth. The more your diet includes these types of foods, the closer you are to getting rid of cellulite. Eating organically is a great option as you don’t have to worry about chemicals toxifying your body. Cutting back on coffee and increasing your green tea intake is one of the easiest steps to detoxifying and eliminating waste and fat in the body. Too much consumption of bad fats has been proven to slow down metabolism and decrease muscle tone. Consuming good fats will keep you feeling full longer, and you will be less likely to snack between meals. Fat has a direct slowing effect on how sugar reaches your bloodstream, so some good fat should always be added to a meal. When you consume too much of the bad fats, your body feels sluggish, and you are less likely to want to exercise. The visible fat on meat is something to avoid, the fats in foods that prolong shelf-life, and the fats used in pastries, pies, muffins & cakes are big no-no’s. Salad-dressings labeled as “low-fat” are also big culprits – they are likely full of sugar which in turn will lead to weight gain and possible cellulite.
