Cellulite is storage of fat cells just under the skin that expand and give us that uneven cottage cheese appearance most commonly around our thighs and bum. However there are a number of foods that you can eat to help reduce its appearance and claim back your silky smooth skin!
Sunflower seeds are packed with vitamin E, potassium, zinc and vitamin B6. They are also a natural diuretic so they help your body with water retention which is a major cause of that ‘dimply’ effect we all despise!
Blackberries and blueberries and any dark coloured berries enhance collagen production which creates new skin tissue. They are also enriched with antioxidants that help break down fat cells in cellulite.
Salmon is also bursting with antioxidants, helping to break down those fat cells that promote cellulite.
Spraying a dash of lemon to your food can add a fresh citrus flavour that helps to clean out your liver, which in turn can lower your estrogen levels, diminishing the appearance of cellulite.
Lean meats like chicken are good for balancing your insulin levels, slowing down digestion so it releases sugar more slowly slowing the appearance of cellulite.
Avocado is high in fibre and packed full of potassium and folate, although high in calories it is great at stabilising sugar levels keeping cellulite in check.
Green Tea contains a high level of antioxidants. It helps increase your metabolism and is a well known contributor to weight loss.
