Top 5 cellulite-busting foods

2 May 2012

The last thing you want on your wedding day is bumpy “orange peel” skin on your legs, butt or tummy. If you have cellulite you're not alone – cellulite affects over 90 per cent of post-adolescent women.

Cellulite-busting food 1: Ginger

One cause of cellulite is poor circulation, so eating foods such as ginger that boost blood flow can help to improve its appearance. As well as being good for circulation, ginger is also good for detoxification and strengthening the lymphatic system, which can help with the circulation of lymph fluid and toxins that can accumulate in fat pockets under the skin, contributing to the bumpy appearance of cellulite. Hmmm…is it too late to change the wedding cake to ginger?

Cellulite-busting food 2: Asparagus

Asparagus is another food with circulation-boosting properties. On top of this, asparagus is a great stress reliever due to its abundance of folic acid, which can help to alleviate a stressful mood. As prolonged levels of stress can increase fat storage on the body, adding foods such as asparagus to your diet can help to reduce the appearance of cellulite. I think we’d all agree that a food that lowers stress levels and helps stop cellulite is a must have for any bride!

Cellulite-busting food 3: Avocados

While anyone fat, thin, young or old can suffer from cellulite, ageing does tend to increase the visibility of cellulite due to the loss of elasticity and thinning of skin. Therefore, try eating foods rich in Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) which can help to strengthen skin and keep it supple and elastic. Avocados are a particularly rich source of EFAs, as well as being high in many essential nutrients.

Cellulite-busting food 4: Oily fish

Another top food for keeping the skin in good condition is oily fish, which is high in skin-strengthening omega-3 fatty acids. As an added bonus, the fatty acids present in oily fish are also good for reducing inflammation and boosting the cardiovascular and lymphatic systems, making them a good choice for keeping cellulite at bay. You could even include a fish dish on your wedding menu, a secret thank you to all those guests who have worked hard for you!

Cellulite-busting food 5: Dark, leafy greens

Dark green leafy vegetables such as spinach and kale are rich in an antioxidant called lutein, which research has shown is good for helping the skin to retain its moisture and elasticity and increase its lipid levels - all good news for those suffering from cellulite. On top of this, leafy greens are nutrient-rich and are good for the circulation and detoxification. Read more on getwed.com...
