Is cellulite preventable?

Q: What is cellulite? Is it preventable, or is it all in the genes like stretch marks? I've just noticed maybe a tiny weeny bit of what I think MAY be cellulite, on my thigh. I'm not sure though, I'm 18 and I've never really understood what it is. Is there anything I can do to prevent more forming?
A: Here's an article that explains what exactly cellulite is:
It's easiest to explain if you compare cellulite to fat.
> Regular fat provides protection to the organs and muscles, and insulates the body. Cellulite has no positive use.

> Regular fat, when squeezed, is smooth in texture. Cellulite appears to have ridges, lumps and irregularities, when squeezed.

> Regular fat could occur anywhere on the body. Cellulite appears only in some parts of the body such as the thighs, arms, buttocks and breasts.

> Regular fat can be accessed by the body as an energy source, while cellulite cannot be used as an energy source.

Also, the causes of cellulite are:
  • poor nutrition
  • physical inactivity
  • genetics
  • stress
  • bad circulation
  • hormones

  1. I've tried numerous different methods to get rid of cellulite. Most of them very costly... I finally had success with targeted exercises. It's not as easy as some of the other methods available, but it worked and it wasn't difficult by any definition.
