Cellulite detox

There are many possible reasons for cellulite to appear. Besides the inherited affinity to accumulating cellulite, our habits play a huge role. What we do, eat, and even how we feel, may have affect.

There are some food that might be helpful for getting rid of cellulite, but it's also useful to know what food you should avoid to prevent cellulite.

Basically, you should avoid too sugary and too oily food. Everything super processed is bad. Deep fried - don't even think about it. List goes on, but I'm sure you catch my drift. :)

For the detox part, on one hand you have to reduce the input of said food, and on the other hand, you should try implementing as much fruit, vegetables, unrefined and even raw food.

Especially good for detox are teas (like green tea), but don't add sugar, use honey instead. Also, juiced fruit like grapefruit, oranges and lemons, (or all of them together!) are really great.

It's nice to make a "detox day" at least once a month. Menu for such day would tipicaly look like this:

Breakfast (in early morning)
Juiced grapefruit (pure, no sugar, lots!)
Yogurt (instead for looking at the supermarket for the low fat one, try your luck at farmers market with some home made organic yogurt)

Soup (just veggies, no pasta, no cream)
Raw salad (sprouts, avocado)
Juiced fruit

Dinner (at least few hours before you go to sleep)
Green tea with honey

During the day (between the meals)
Green tea (or some other kind) - few cups
Fruit - apples, pineapples, grape, citrus, ...
Raw vegetable - tomatoes, cucumber, celery, ... (anything that could be eaten raw)

This is just one example, you could try many variations. Also, remember - it is "detox day" - after one day of detoxification you should continue with a normal diet.

Cellulite and pregnancy

Could pregnancy induce more cellulite? Well, you'll surely gain some weight - that should not worry you; 80% of that newly gained weight you'll lose in the first few months after the birth. The good news is, you have no reason to think that you'll be more prone to cellulite during pregnancy than in any other period of your life.

However, pregnant or not, cellulite is something that is easier to prevent and cure.

While pregnant, many diverse methods of getting rid of cellulite can not work for you - you can not go on a diet, use any kind of "magical" pills (which I would not recommend anyway), go to arduous treatments, etc.

Here's the list of things you could do, easily at your home, for preventing and reducing cellulite while pregnant:

1. Walk. If there is no complication with your pregnancy, or not advised by your doctor otherwise, walking is a good way of preventing and reducing cellulite. It's recommended to walk for at least half an hour a day, but if you have enough time, even 2 or 3 hours a day would be great.
2. Massage. This specially goes for those areas already affected with cellulite.
3. Relax & enjoy. It's seriously considered that one causes of cellulite is stress. Pregnancy might be stressful for some, so try to enjoy in good sides of it. For relaxation you might use some steamy baths with salts, oils and essential oils like lavender, orange, grapefruit, rosewood, ... . Here you can check the list of home made cellulite remedies!
4. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables. They contain necessary vitamins and minerals, as well as dietary fibers. Some of the best fruits for preventing cellulite are grapes, banana and pineapple.
5. Drink lots of water, unsweetened tea, juiced fruit like orange, grapefruit, yogurt.

These might sound a bit simplistic, but the hard part is making it all a habit. Simply said, there is no miracle, sophisticated, complicated way of preventing and getting rid of cellulite, but simply doing your best to adopt these habits as much as possible.

You do not want your towels that soft, trust me ;)

Most of us try keeping our towels soft and fluffy. We use fabric conditioners, hot dry them, add Calgon tablets, add vinegar and so on. But, have you ever thought that you would actually benefit more with rough towels, than soft ones?

Here's how:
  • rough towles will remove dead skin cells from your body, leaving nice and soft skin underneath
  • rough towels will massage your whole body every day after the shower - helping your blood and lymph circulation
The massage you get is very useful, and what is even more important you will get a massage of your whole body, each and every day. Massaging really helps getting rid of cellulite, and the most important thing is to do it regularly. Using rough instead soft towels is a cheap, simple and effective way to remove cellulite and have beautiful legs.
