Our previous post revealed the truth behind cellulite: namely, that it’s a skin issue for which there are no known cures. But don’t despair – nature has a number of food solutions to help reduce the APPEARANCE of cellulite.

Supple collagen tissue and skin elasticity and firmness are key to making cellulite appear less prevalent. Processed, sodium and saturated fats laden foods can weaken and destroy the collagen tissue. This makes it easier for fat cells to protrude through collagen’s protective layers creating the look of bumpy skin. Certain natural foods have a unique ability to strengthen collagen while detoxing your body.

Our TOP 7 SUPER (yummy!) foods that help fight cellulite are:

  • Artichoke hearts – are packed with folic acid and vitamin C, significant nutrients that restore skin elasticity and support healthy collagen production.
  • Cilantro – binds to toxins within the body, helping to detox and flush them out before they settle within the fat cells.
  • Citrus Fruits (oranges, grapefruits, lemons) – contain high doses of vitamin C, vital for strengthening collagen and turbo-charging skin cell rejuvenation.
  • Green Tea – boosts metabolism and fat burning processes within the body.
  • Pineapple – excellent source of bromelain, an enzyme that helps with digestion of proteins and improves blood circulation.
  • Quinoa– supplies high doses of valuable minerals, dietary fibers, protein and vitamin B, all of which aid in growth and repair of healthy muscle and skin cells.
  • Salmon – outstanding source of omega-3 fatty acids which improve blood vessel health and circulation, leading to decreased appearance of dimply skin.

Oh, and don’t forget the best and most important cellulite-fighting solution – WATER. Drink plenty of it you’ll see a noticeable change and the appearance of smoother, healthier looking skin.
