Will Losing Weight Eliminate Cellulite?


Cellulite on Back of Woman's Legs

Cellulite is not a disease and it is not exclusive to women or people who are overweight. Cellulite is the result of excess deposits of fat located in areas where there is an intricate network of connective tissue covered by a thin layer of skin. Most men don't have areas of cellulite simply because the skin where the fat is deposited is thicker than in other areas of the body. 80 to 90% of women have some degree of cellulite. Almost 25% of a woman's body weight is made up of body fat, while a man only has 10 to 15% body fat.

Cellulite can occur in a person who is not overweight. Many people automatically associate obesity with cellulite. The fact is that not everyone who is overweight has cellulite. Cellulite is affected by weight loss, but losing weight will not eliminate cellulite. Once a fat cell develops, it will never go away. During the weight loss process, fat cells may shrink down and collapse, but they are never completely eliminated. If the weight is gained a second time, new fat cells are developed. The old ones do not retake their former shape.

Although you can never eliminate cellulite, you can strengthen the connective tissue and the skin that covers the body. If you are in the process of losing weight, include healthy foods that contain calcium, magnesium and other vitamins and minerals that support and strengthen the connective tissue. Keeping the skin supple and resilient can reduce the appearance of cellulite. Massage and exercise also help to strengthen the connective tissue and skin. While it will not eliminate cellulite, it will help to keep the muscles underneath tone and the tissues flexible as the body goes through physical changes.

MRC of Vancouver started me going in my attempt to loose 30 years of weight gain!! I have been using their program for about 18 months and have actually lost 30 pounds. I have changed the way I eat. I've learned what foods are best for ME. By analyzing my DNA and hormones, they helped me learn to eat what was right for me. I have "tweeked" my purchases and preparation of food to make eating healthy and still fun for me. I eat lots of veggies and salads and include a healthy diet of protein. These are very satisfying. Do I "cheat" now and then? Yes, but I don't like how I feel after eating sugar and lots of carbs so I return to my good foods quickly and continue to see my weight drop. I walk my little dog four times a day and have a part-time job that allows me a lot of movement. I feel so healthy and wonderful. It's easy to continue to eat and live a more healthy lifestyle! When I confessed about eating the wrong "foods", the gals simply encouraged me and gave me fresh ideas to satisfy my taste buds. I always felt I could be honest during my consultations with no fear of being lectured! I plan to continue until I reach my desired weight. I expect to reach my goal by 2017. After I reach my weight goal, I plan to remain in good health with my new found healthy way of eating the calories I need to maintain my proper weight. My Dr. is very pleased at my progress. She wondered how I have lost 30 pounds.
