Can Your Diet Help To Reduce Cellulite?

By James Kupe

It can be very hard to look in the mirror every day and see cellulite sitting there on your body. For most women, the simple fact that they have cellulite and they are having trouble getting rid of it sucks. And it makes it even harder to deal with when you know that while roughly 85% of women suffer with cellulite, it rarely happens to men. The good news is that there are things you can do to minimize the appearance of this annoying condition, and in this article, we’re going to look at something that you can have complete control over – the foods that you eat.

Common Foods That Can Help To Fight Cellulite

There is a range of foods that can limit your body’s cellulite levels, and there are foods that can actually make the appearance of your cellulite worse. The trick is to eat foods that will help to balance your hormone levels, as well as foods that help to reduce inflammation in your body, and foods that are comparatively high in sulfur.

In addition to these, try to eat foods that can improve blood circulation, and foods rich in vitamin C should also form a part of your diet. Today we are going to focus on foods that tend to balance your body’s hormone levels.

Foods To Avoid Whenever Possible

It’s been proven that high levels of this estrogen can cause your body to increase it’s creation of cellulite. Estrogen levels in your body can be increased by up to 68% just by drinking your morning cup of coffee. Other things we eat that can raise estrogen levels include most cooking oils, and anything that contains non-fermented soy.

Foods That Battle Cellulite

On the other hand, foods that are high in fiber and rich in sulfur are very good for fighting cellulite production. Adding ground flaxseed to your diet, even though flax itself is a phytoestrogen (which is a negative), is one option. That’s because the lignans in flax contain anti-estrogen properties, which cancels out the negative. However, flax can lose it’s anti-estrogen properties if it is pressed into an oil, so only use organic ground flaxseed and don’t use flax oils.

A Dozen More Cellulite Fighting Foods

Other cellulite fighting foods include chia seeds (high in fiber), quinoa, and sulphur rich foods such as cabbage, radishes, broccoli, brussels sprouts, cauliflower, watercress, kale, hemp seeds, onions, pumpkin seeds, and spirulina. Sulfur is an important mineral which is used by your body to build healthy connective tissue, and it also helps to reduce cellulite in your body. If you implement these diet tips, you should be on your way to reducing that unsightly cellulite that you are so sick of looking at.
