Can Weight Loss Really Remove Cellulite?
For years now, we have been trying to come up with some kind of cure for cellulite – nature’s cottage cheese. Unfortunately, scientists have yet to produce an actual cure, but there have been many breakthroughs in the fight against cellulite in the past few years. The treatments and techniques that have been made available to the public are all temporary, and some cost more than the average person can afford. All of the studies done on cellulite treatments have only been on the ones that will cost money, but recently scientists have been working on a cellulite removal technique that is free!
Not many people have believed this technique will work, but after their research into the matter, scientists are now saying that weight loss actually can reduce cellulite! Women have been trying to make dieting work for their cellulite for years, without succeeding. We have spent countless hours doing cardio, lunges, squats, and starving ourselves, all for the sake of cellulite, and not many have seen permanent results.
The study was done in 29 women, who were all on a diet that included an assortment of diet techniques, including, low fat meals, liquid diets, bariatric surgery, and medication. You may not have to do all of these things specifically in order to lose your cellulite, but it would help if you went on a similar program. Don’t try to make up a diet like this on your own though; these women were supervised by a team of doctors and were on medication during the diet. Diets can be harmful to you, and you have to be careful before you jump into a diet plan. Always consult your doctor before starting any new eating plan.
Out of the 29 women, 17 lost cellulite, and the people who lost the most weight were the ones who lost the most cellulite. A few of the women reported that their cellulite was worse and more noticeable after losing weight, which scientists say is normal. Some bodies lose cellulite naturally with weight loss, while with others, the Weight Loss accentuates the look of the fatty skin. One of the reasons why this happens is the amount of elasticity in the skin after weight loss. If your skin is loose after losing weight, and has not tightened up along with the rest of your body, then the look of your cellulite will certainly not improve! However, if your skin’s elasticity is still good and tight after losing weight, then you should see a marked improvement in your cellulite.
If you would like to be a part of a cellulite or Weight Loss study, but you don’t know where to find one, I suggest you ask your doctor or dermatologist about it. Chances are, one of them will know of a study going on that you may qualify for. If there aren’t any at the time, just ask them to let you know about any that come up in your area.
Cellulite can affect people of all ages and body types and can be notoriously difficult to get rid of. While there are certainly no miracle cures, using specially formulated creams and treatments along with a healthy diet and exercise plan can reduce the appearance of the dimpled skin affected by cellulite. Creams and lotions that contain stimulating ingredients such as caffeine are particularly beneficial as they help move toxins out the body while other natural ingredients are used to condition the skin, giving it a firmer, tighter appearance which further reduces the look of the affected area.
