The One-Two Punch that Fights Cellulite

The One-Two Punch that Fights Cellulite - TheBlackPurple
In our last post, we showed you why there really is only one way to reduce or get rid of cellulite. While the unsightly skin dimpling that cellulite produces makes it feel like something is wrong with you, it really is just the symptom of too much subcutaneous (below the skin) fat. Lose the fat and you’ll lose the cellulite. Of course, that’s far easier said than done. If you’ve struggled with extra weight, you know that permanently losing it, and the cellulite that goes with it, is not as simple as hopping on the latest diet craze, or sweating it out at the gym, or some combination of both. Healthily losing weight is an often complex combination of factors that include eating a balanced diet and getting the 2.5 hours of moderate activity per week that Health Canada recommends. It only took a short paragraph to mention diet and exercise, but they are each hugely daunting tasks. When you put them together, it can make you want to give up before you even start a weight loss program.

One Step at a Time

But if you breakdown the process into more doable parts, you’ll increase your chances of starting and sticking with it. While more exercise is usually the last thing that people want to do, there is no denying it‘s role in helping you lose weight and cellulite.

How to Improve Your Results from Exercise

The problem with exercise is that, unlike a lot of what you might hear, you can’t “target” cellulite. When you increase activity levels, your body burns fat in equal proportions all over your body. Yes, you can do thigh and butt exercises, but they don’t increase the fat burn in those areas, they just increase the size of the muscles that lie underneath. Then, when you do lose the fat, you may looked more toned in those areas. But shapewear actually does help to burn fat in the areas of the body that it contacts. When you wear shapewear shorts, the massaging action of the fabric increases skin heat and circulation where the shorts touch you body – your thighs and butt.

Here’s the One-Two Punch

When you combine moderate exercise and the use of shapewear while you do it, you can lose weight and get results targeted to where you see the most cellulite. Again, it’s just one step in the overall battle against cellulite, but every weapon you have helps.
