Fruits in the Fight Against Cellulite

Summer is already here and the holiday season is coming. At the seaside or in the mountain there comes the time when we have the greatest opportunity to enjoy the sun and recharge ourselves with positive energy. Male or female, everyone wants to look and feel good in the summer on the beach. Many of us, of course, face the question: “How will I look in my new swimwear this year?”

A particular problem women are facing in the summer is the fight with cellulite or the so-called orange skin. Today there is a wide variety of creams and masks on the market offered by cosmetic companies promising perfectly fine forms only for four or six weeks. But the truth is that only cosmetics can not help us achieve the final result. Good food and exercise are the other two compulsory conditions to reach as closer as possible to the desired outcome. This may not be a secret for anyone, but most of us usually forget this during winter. Doctors believe that a combination of factors as our lifestyle, genetic datum, dietary habits and hormonal levels in the body affect the amount of cellulite we have.

It has been shown that the keeping of the Mediterranean diet helps largely go in to shape. It is based on olive and olive oil rich in polyphenols, which are a class of substances containing antioxidants. These substances are also contained in most fruits and vegetables. Indeed, we are speaking not about a diet but about eating properly. Freeing our body from the excess toxins can improve the appearance of the skin and reduce the tendency to cellulite. Cherries, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, mangoes, oranges, grapefruit, tomatoes, spinach, dill, carrots are just some of the fruits and vegetables that contain antioxidants and minerals that help regulate metabolism and fat in our body. Drinking of as much liquids as possible is also important because it provides more rapid release of toxic substances and helps to achieve faster results from the diet. Water is often recommended because it lacks extra calories, however, liquids may be different types of teas and juices.

If you want to prevent cellulite problem you should avoid foods that dehydrate the body as alcohol, foods high in artificial additives and sweeteners, carbonated beverages and foods high in animal protein.

It is important to know that there is no diet that will by magic eliminate cellulite completely. This “curse” as some call it is nothing more than accumulated excessive subcutaneous fat. If, however, we reduce the total mass of body fat in combination with good diet, this will lead to a large extent to deletion of visible cellulite. But there is no sense to long for the Photoshop effects from the picture on the packaging of a cosmetic product for weight loss, because in the end, every woman herself is fascinating.
