If your goal is to permanently eliminate cellulite in areas such as thighs, buttocks and legs in record time, it will be necessary to act on several areas, and maintain a lifestyle that will involve some changes to your current habits.
The complexity of cellulite treatment is that it is a progressive process, it must first be stopped, then reduced and then kept at bay. There are two keys to success in the fight against cellulite:
- Be consistent.
- Attack it from different angles, from the inside and the outside, since there are several creams, nutricosmetics and aesthetic treatments for professional and home use, which can be used against cellulite, obtaining excellent results. These treatments can be combined if necessary, according to each case.
Generally, the legs are the area of the body most affected by cellulite, especially in the thighs and buttocks.
It is normal for women to have various degrees and types of cellulite on the buttocks and the back of the thighs. This is called mixed cellulite, and it is very common.
What is cellulite?
The process begins with fluid retention in the tissue, which causes changes in the activity of fat cells or adipocytes. The adipocytes hypertrophy (grow in number and size) causing the skin to bulge.
The fiber tissue, or connective tissue, tightens, pulling the skin inward, forming dimples.
Normally, it tends to occur in the thighs and buttocks area, although it varies greatly depending on each woman. There are also types of cellulite (soft, hard, mixed) and it can be in different degrees (from grade 1 to 5), making it easier or more difficult to treat.
Can we improve cellulite in the legs and buttocks through diet?
Eating and exercise do not make the cellulite we have disappear, but they do help greatly to improve it and above all to maintain the results.
5 simple but very useful tips to improve your eating habits that will help you improve your cellulite and feel better:
- Reduce salt intake as much as possible. Foods that contain a lot of salt will cause fluid retention and this will worsen your cellulite.
- Avoid sugar, saturated fats, fried foods...
- Drink plenty of water, at least two liters a day and try to drink it outside of meals. Water is water, not soda. Water!
- Eat slowly and chew each bite well. Eating slowly is extremely important because chewing secretes an enzyme that helps dissolve food. If you swallow without chewing enough, the morsels reach the stomach whole, then the food ferments before it can be digested and causes bloating and toxins that will end up causing cellulite. On the other hand, if you chew more you will tend to eat less, as you will be satiated sooner.
- Increase your intake of vegetables and fruits.
How to fight cellulite on thighs, buttocks and legs with exercise
Regular exercise provides health benefits, not just aesthetic ones. Regular exercise helps you burn fat, tone your muscles, and activate your metabolism. In addition, exercise decreases stress and increases circulation.
The exercises to eliminate cellulite from the legs are characterized by being low-impact aerobic exercises of long duration, which are those in which the body burns more fat. Low impact means that it is not a strenuous exercise, meaning that you should not be jumping all the time because excessive jumping tends to aggravate cellulite pictures.

An effective leg cellulite workout routine should include both aerobic and toning exercises. Tailor any workout routine to your body and your needs:

There are supplements specifically designed for cellulite, such as Selulit (not available yet in the USA), which are usually based on dry extract of pure green tea, and are supplemented with more burning nutrients, thermogenics, etc.
