3 ways to reduce the cellulite

Reducing cellulite is a goal for many women. Although there are different more or less effective methods to achieve this, let’s make it clear that there is no miracle solution. We think that it is the combination of three solutions (taking into account also perseverance) that will allow us to reach our goal.

Today we would like to talk about 3 ways to reduce your cellulite.

Physical activity

The best and most effective way to reduce cellulite is to practice a sporting activity. Cellulite is characterized by an excess of fat stored in the tissues, which is necessary to stimulate the body to eliminate it.

Some sports are more effective than others such as running, exercise or bodybuilding to transform this fat into muscle. The type of effort chosen is also important. Fractional training or HIIT is a high-intensity workout that puts a lot of stress on the body and allows to burn fat better.

A recent training method that has also proven to be very effective in eliminating cellulite is electro-fitness. It consists of combining a fitness session and a muscle electrostimulation session to multiply the benefits of both methods. Short, energy-intensive sessions stimulate the basal metabolism and therefore the elimination of fat for several hours.

Controlling calories with diet

The other main key to eliminating cellulite is to adopt an adapted nutritional diet. There’s no need to sweat a lot if you’re going to eat a chocolate bar a few hours later. Sports activities should be associated with a healthy, balanced diet that includes fruit and vegetables (for fibre) and non-fat sources of protein (white meat, fish, eggs, pulses, etc.), taking particular care to control carbohydrates.

These are the general principles valid for anyone wishing to lose fat. Regarding cellulite more specifically, there are however some interesting tips and tricks. In particular, it is recommended to drink a lot of water to promote drainage, which is crucial to reduce cellulite. In this respect, green tea is particularly known for its drainage effect.

On a dietary level, certain foods will help stimulate blood circulation and oxygenation such as fresh fruits rich in vitamins (kiwi, orange, …) but also garlic, onion and nuts (almonds, nuts or hazelnuts but without excess because they have a high calorie level). It is also important to avoid salt (and therefore industrial products) which promotes water retention. A last piece of advice is to consume foods that helps fat burning and the elimination of liquids such as pineapple.

With muscular electrostimulation

Associated with an appropriate diet and, if possible, regular physical activity, electrostimulation is clearly the most effective solution for significantly and lastingly reducing cellulite. Widely used in sports halls as a training method, electrostimulation is making great strides in the world of beauty and is now used in many beauty salons and other treatment centers.

The reason can be summarized in two words: simplicity and efficiency. Firstly, electrostimulation will allow a localized action. Cellulite is located on the thighs, buttocks or hips. It is in these precise areas that the electrodes will be placed to allow an action aimed at strengthening the tissues and fibers.

Some electrostimulators offer programmed specifically dedicated to the elimination of cellulite. This is particularly the case with the solution proposed by i-motion, the world leader in wireless electrostimulation, whose “Cellulite” program is perfect for treating lax skin, sagging tissue, acidity and orange peel skin. It is a calorie-based program that immediately triggers an ideal metabolic activation for women who want to reduce their cellulite. The “Drainage” or “Cardio” programs also have a very positive effect on the elimination of cellulite.
