Reduce The Appearance Of Cellulite With An Effective Workout Program

By

When Mike turned 65, he was 25 pounds overweight. By strict dieting, he shed the extra pounds, but he lost more weight; he also lost his energy and vitality. He was always exhausted, and his friends, seeing his gaunt, drawn face, worried about his health.

By the time he volunteered for a particular fitness program two years later, he had put 25 extra pounds back on. After 6 months of exercise and some willpower at the dinner table, Mike slimmed down again. This time he felt better than he ever had, brimming with energy and glowing with good health.

What made the difference? The first time Mike lost weight; the second time he lost fat. The distinction is important. According to research, a large portion of the weight lost by dieting alone is active tissue, such as muscle and connective tissue, while a smaller fraction is excess fat. Exercise has the opposite effect. It increased his lean body mass and decreased his excess fat.

Same thing goes with cellulite. Most people tend to think that cellulite is only present to people who are obese. That is why they sometimes associate cellulite with obesity.

Actually, even if cellulite refers to the chain of wrinkled “fat cells” and “subcutaneous connective tissues” beneath the workout-program-16layer of the skin, it should never be associated only with people who are fat or obese. In fact, there are many people who have cellulite but are not fat at all.

In reality, nobody knows the main reason why some people accumulate cellulite. However, there are some factors that health experts are considering such as the structure of the fat cells. Some experts say it may be caused by some hormonal changes in the body. But none of these things has been proven to cause cellulite as of yet.

However, we do know that the main reason why most of the cellulite cases found are in women is that the connective tissues of women are more rigid and firm than men. Hence, whenever a woman puts on fat, the fatty or “adipose” cells tend to swell and get bigger. It creates a protruding appearance to the skin producing that dreaded “orange peel” look.

Another reason some women have more cellulite than others? Heredity-plain and simple. Some women are more predisposed than other to have cellulite-even if they are notoverweight.

With the many cases of obese people having cellulites in their body, most of them believe that their cellulites are caused by being too fat. Even though not all those who are obese develop cellulite, being overweight can really trigger the development of cellulite. This is because too much fat under the skin tends to push the connective tissue creating a strain on the skin. Thus, cellulite forms.

So, the most important thing to remember here is to keep those connective tissues firm and strong and avoid accumulating excess fats so as to avoid the development of cellulite.

How? For one, eat a well balanced diet and follow a structured workout program. Why, you ask?

Transforming food into fat seems all too easy for most of us. Losing fat is far more difficult, and to accomplish this, we have only three alternatives:

1. Decrease food intake and keep activity constant
2. Increase activity and keep food intake constant
3. Combine both approaches: diet and exercise.

Physical activity can help reverse the results of inactivity. An hour of vigorous exercise burns up 300 to 600 calories. If you also cut 300 to 500 calories from your daily menu, you can also lose weight at the rate of one to two pounds a week which is a realistic and safe goal for most people.

Without exercise, you would have to eat 500 to 1,000 fewer calories a day to lose the same number of pounds in a week! So a combination of diet and exercise is definitely the way to go. By shedding excess fat through a good workout program, fat cells “shrink” and will therefore tend not to “bulge” out as much. This in turn will help reduce he appearance of cellulite.

Take Charge!
