Truth, lies, and cottage cheese thighs
Cellulite is nothing more than normal fat beneath the skin. The fat appears bumpy because it pushes against your connective tissue, causing the skin above it to pucker. Cellulite isn’t harmful, however many people would prefer it wasn’t there because of the way it looks.
Having cellulite doesn’t mean you are overweight plenty of thin people have it too. Cellulite is more common amongst women than men, this is because women tend to carry more fat around their hips and thighs, we also have less supportive connective tissue to keep it all in place, It is estimated, however, that about 10% of men suffer from cellulite, as well. Hormones also seem to play a role in the appearance of cellulite: As women age, their bodies produce less estrogen (a hormone that helps keep blood vessels flowing smoothly). Less estrogen can mean poorer circulation, which can also mean a decrease in new collagen production and the breakdown of older connective tissue.
It’s true that cellulite runs in families too; if your mother had cellulite, you have a good chance of also developing it. Your diet alone can’t determine whether you will or will not get cellulite, but eating a well-balanced, plant-heavy diet can reduce inflammation throughout your body and help you maintain a healthy weight. Staying hydrated, both by drinking water and by eating plenty of foods with high water content will also keep your connective tissue strong and supple, and may even help you slim down, eat lots of cucumbers, radishes and tomatoes which are all more than 90% water.
Cigarette smoke has been shown to reduce blood vessel flow and to disrupt the formation of collagen, allowing for the connective tissue to become stretched and damaged more easily and for underlying fat to show through. Plus, smoking can make you look bad in lots of other ways, It causes premature wrinkles and aging, leave skin dry and discolored and can contribute to stretch marks.
Other factors that influence how much cellulite you have and how visible it is include:
- Poor diet
- Fad dieting
- Slow metabolism
- Lack of physical activity
- Hormone changes
- Thickness and color of your skin
