A diet for cellulite reduction
According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, you can avoid cellulite by eating a diet that is low in fat and rich in fruits, vegetables and fiber. Staying hydrated by drinking plenty of water and avoiding alcohol can also aid in reducing the appearance of cellulite.
Furthermore, including lean proteins and foods that contain a low glycemic index in your diet encourages fat loss and less visible cellulite, according to the Harvard School of Public Health.
Fitness for cellulite reduction
An exercise routine that focuses on strengthening and toning the body can reduce the appearance of cellulite. By toning and strengthening, the skin becomes more taut, body fat percentage is reduced and cellulite becomes much less visible.
