4 Cellulite Solutions Exposed

By Coach Josh Under Weight Loss Tips

<<< “MY CELLULITE HAS TO GO!”

“Josh, I’m worried about my ‘cottage cheese thighs’. They keep getting worse as I get older. What in the world can I do about my cellulite? I’ve tried just about everything to get rid of these dimples, but nothing works. I don’t want to be embarrassed, and I don’t want to embarrass my kids and husband when I need to wear shorts or a bathing suit. Are there any new ways to battle cellulite?”—Brenda H., New Jersey

<<< JOSH’S RESPONSE

Brenda, I have been getting dozens and dozens of emails like yours over the past few weeks. But before you get too discouraged about your cellulite, let me assure you there ARE some new techniques that provide hope in battling this unsightly problem.

But first, it is important to answer this question…

What exactly is cellulite?

Cellulite is simply “fat pockets” that occur when connective tissues underneath the skin do not hold in the underlying fat, which pokes out causing dimples like you would see on a golf ball.

However, it is important to remember that cellulite is simply normal fat. It looks bumpy because this fat is pushing through the connective tissue that usually keeps the fat distributed evenly beneath your skin.

Cellulite occurs in most areas around the body where the skin is thinnest. Places like the thighs, legs, and buttocks of women. Your total percent of body fat, your age, and your genetics all combine to determine if you will have cellulite or not. Basically, there is a big genetic component to having cellulite, so if you do not like it you can blame your parents. (But there are ways to overcome your genetic predisposition.)

Cellulite affects women more than men because of the female hormone estrogen, and a woman’s tendency for thin skin. You see, estrogen tends to increase the fluid buildup in fatty tissue and women tend to have thinner skin than men so their superficial fat shows more easily if it pushes through the surrounding connective tissue.

It is estimated that 85% of all women have some cellulite regardless if she is heavy or thin. Even women under 100 lbs can have cellulite!

<<< CELLULITE CURES? THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY

Before I reveal several new and exciting cellulite solutions, it is important to mention techniques that plain DO NOT WORK. Here they are so you don’t waste your time and money:

1. SOME CELLULITE CREAMS: There are countless creams available as supposed cellulite treatments. However, the scientific research does not support most of them. Generally speaking, slathering gobs of cellulite cream onto your skin and expecting it to do something is nothing but wishful thinking. These creams only absorb into the top layer of skin, not to the deep layers of connective tissue where cellulite is found.

After all, your skin is specifically designed to keep things from “soaking in” to your body. It is a protective mechanism. Otherwise, anything that touched your skin would be absorbed and circulate throughout your body.

Thankfully, this does not happen.

Thinking that a cellulite cream is going to work by absorbing into your body is kind of like spreading pudding on your belly and expecting it to “soak in” to your stomach and make you full.

If you are set on using a cellulite cream, look for one that contains both caffeine and theophylline. There are some studies that indicate these ingredients MAY have a positive effect on cellulite by causing fat cells to shrink.

2. LIPOSUCTION: A lot of people are under the impression that liposuction is a cellulite cure. But that is not the case. The fact is, liposuction can make cellulite look worse!

You see, liposuction is designed to suck away the fat that is deep down beneath the skin. But cellulite is generally to close to the surface for liposuction to help.

Therefore, by sucking away deep-fat, your surface fat could “cave in” and make your cellulite look much worse. Besides, liposuction is extremely expensive and, like all surgeries, can be dangerous.

3. MESOTHERAPY™: This cellulite treatment was originally developed in France and involves a series of injections directly into the small pockets of cellulite fat. These injections contain a solution of homeopathic medications that supposedly break down and dissolve fat so it can be excreted by the body.

The problem is, there are no scientific studies to back up this procedure and there is a lot of skepticism surrounding it in the medical community. The other problem with mesotherapy is you have to get a LOT of injections, which can have side effects and problems. Mesotherapy is also very expensive with individual sessions costing hundreds of dollars. Until further research is done, I would stay away from this procedure.

4. LIPODISSOLVE™: Lipodissolve injections, also called injection lipolysis, is a technique, similar to mesotherapy, where a combination of substances, including vitamins, enzymes and phosphadatidylcholine, a natural substance derived from soy, is injected into fat-pockets to help break apart the cellulite fat-pocket.

Again, there is no scientific research (to my knowledge), to show that lipodissolve injections are effective. Furthermore, it is recommended that you get two to four treatments every week for six to eight week intervals to see results. This can be very expensive and injections can be painful.

Common side effects include local pain, minor burning sensations for a few hours, temporary bruising, along with itchiness and soreness for one to two days after treatment.

Some patients may feel a few bumps under the skin, which will dissolve within two weeks and the injection areas may experience tenderness and swelling for 48 hours.

Anyway, those are the four techniques I DO NOT recommend at this time. New studies may prove differently in the future, but in the mean time… stay clear.

Darn it…

I’ve run out of time today, but stay tuned for “Part Two” to this post where I’ll reveal at least FOUR exciting NATURAL cellulite solutions that are inexpensive and even a little bit odd. One of them is a home remedy that you can do right away.

Best!

    Needed to compose you that very small note to thank you once again with the stunning basics you have shown above. This has been so surprisingly open-handed of people like you to grant publicly precisely what a lot of folks could have made available for an electronic book to get some money on their own, specifically considering that you might well have done it in the event you desired. These pointers also acted to be a good way to realize that someone else have a similar dream just as my own to know the truth more and more when considering this condition. I’m sure there are some more fun occasions in the future for people who look into your blog.

    I am a thin person as is almost everyone in my immediately family. I am 51. I have had cellulite on my buttocks and thighs since my mid 30’s. I weighed 103 in my mid 30’s, I now weigh 107 -110 at the age of 51.
    I have a question about creams from #1 on your post:
    1. SOME CELLULITE CREAMS: There are countless creams available as supposed cellulite treatments. However, the scientific research does not support most of them. Generally speaking, slathering gobs of cellulite cream onto your skin and expecting it to do something is nothing but wishful thinking. These creams only absorb into the top layer of skin, not to the deep layers of connective tissue where cellulite is found.
    After all, your skin is specifically designed to keep things from “soaking in” to your body. It is a protective mechanism. Otherwise, anything that touched your skin would be absorbed and circulate throughout your body.

    If creams do not absorb into ones skin then why or how do progesterone and estrogen creams work. They are suppose to absorb into ones body, correct?

    I am not ready to look 51. I am healthy and look great. But frustrated with this stupid cellulite. I eat very well; Fresh veggies, fruits, low fat meats, some fish (not my favorite) I only splurge on a few sweets or libations on the weekends…I’m over it and want it gone!!!!!
    What should I do?
