Why You Should Stop Trying to Get Rid of Cellulite

Why You Should Stop Trying to Get Rid of Cellulite - TheBlackPurple
If you can’t bear to see your hips and thighs in the mirror, or you delete any photos of you in a swimsuit, you’re suffering from what we call ‘cellulite shame’. It can affect your self-esteem, the clothes you wear, even your love life. So you’ve tried to get rid of your cellulite. You’ve bought all the creams, pills and brushes that promised to ‘sweep away’ cellulite, or ‘banish’ it, or ‘blast’ it off. And you’ve tried more than a few weight-loss diets, including ‘no-carb’, ‘low-cal’ ‘high-protein’ and ‘fat-burning’. But has any of it worked? Of course not and here’s why: you were trying to get rid of cellulite. If you’re thinking ‘but that’s the point, isn’t it?’, you’re absolutely right. But our bodies and their systems are very complex. That makes doing something as complicated as reducing your cellulite far beyond the simple solution of rubbing in some cream. Cellulite is a symptom of body fat, so focusing on the cellulite alone is probably the worst way to reduce it. And, for the same reasons around the complexity of your body, trying to lose weight with a simple ‘eat less food, lose more weight’ diet is just about the worst way to lose weight healthily and keep it off. The best way to try to manage your weight, and therefore your cellulite, is to make your body as healthy as possible.

How a Healthier Diet Helps You Curb Cellulite

If you’re overweight, you have consumed more calories of food than you burn and the leftover energy has been stored as fat cells in your body. While we understand that things like our emotions or stress can make us overeat, it’s not like you can simply switch those off. Another cause of overeating is not getting enough nutrition from the foods we eat. Low-nutrient foods can be high in calories, but not have the nutrients that your body craves. So, even after you eat lots of calorie-rich food, your body tells you it’s still hungry, which can lead to overeating. By simply eating a heathy diet, you will reduce your hunger pangs, which will help to reduce your eating, which will help to reduce your calorie intake, which will help to reduce your cellulite. So stop focusing exclusively on your cellulite and put all your energy into being healthier.
