Unfortunately, I know firsthand what a cellulite is. These are small bumps on the skin, folds that turn into tuberosity. This, of course, is only the initial stage of the disease, and when it develops, the thighs and buttocks are completely disfigured and begin to resemble a yeast dough, which is poked with a finger.
Stages of cellulite
In the first stage, the legs swell due to the accumulation of slags in the intercellular fluid. Then, due to excessive accumulation of toxins, squeezing of the lymphatic vessels and excessive fluid retention in the body occur. Part of the fluid begins to be excreted through the veins.
Methods of struggle
I myself struggled with cellulite and swelling of the legs, and here are my tips:
1. Mandatory exercise.
2. Mandatory visit to the sauna or bath. There all the accumulated excess fluid is removed from the body, as well as slags. Some gyms are now equipped with infrared cabins, which are very helpful to this.
3. I regularly undergo lymphatic drainage courses.
4. I take a shower with a scrub, after which I use anti-cellulite creams. At the first stage of cellulite, this method is especially effective. I do the skin massage myself or ask the husband while applying the cream.
Reduce the level of fluid in your body
This is a type of diuretic diet described by Linda Lazarides.
The essence of the method is that the occurrence of edema and excess weight is due to water retention in the body of certain substances. Linda believes that if you refuse to take these substances, you can get rid of edema. First of all, it is carbohydrates and salt.
I braced myself and used this methodremoving from your diet the following products:
– sugar, honey and all products containing them
– eggs and dairy products
– all types of red meat
– any salty products, including smoked meats
– fish, pastries, mayonnaise, alcohol, products containing artificial additives
You can eat the following foods:
– natural yoghurts, soy milk
– fruit, except bananas and grapes
– beans, any vegetables except potatoes, fresh juices, lean poultry and fish
In the number of permitted products, I did not limit myself. In one week I lost six kilograms, and then the weight loss was about one kilogram per week.
I repeat this diet regularly, a week before menstruation, I drink anti-edematous herbal tea and have long forgotten about leg edema and cellulite.
