Fruit and vegetables and the battle against cellulite

When it comes to cellulite, you can find plenty of information on the web promising a miracle cure to eliminate the ‘orange peel’ effect from your thighs, hips and buttocks by purchasing  over priced diet products and therapy packages.

The two biggest concerns that women have with regards to cellulite are how to prevent further cellulite development and of course, how to get rid of it. The cruel truth is that once Cellulite has appeared in your body it is quite difficult to erase it.  There is no miracle cure other than physical activity and a healthy diet. However, the regular application of  Anti Cellulite creams such as MadForm Mediterranium will help prevent and slow-down further cellulite development whilst making it much less noticeable.

Let’s start with 2 important tips to help you on your way:

1) Even before you have breakfast in the morning, the first thing you should do is drink a glass of hot water with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. This will detoxify your body and prepare it for the stresses of your day.

2) During the day, force yourself to drink at least 2 liters of water to flush down the toxins stored in the fatty tissue deposits of your body.  It is important to drink in small to moderate doses regularly. The presence of water in your system has an enormously positive effect, and the lack of enough water can only negatively impact your body.

By eating enough fruit and vegetables your blood circulation and nutritional health will improve and in the future you will not only feel better but you will also prevent cellulite from spreading more aggressively. Below you will find a list of fruits and vegetables that will help you to fight cellulite expansion and keep you and your body healthy.

Fruits and Vegetables Rich in Antioxidants: Toxins tend to accumulate under our skin reducing skin elasticity and restricting blood circulation in the capillaries. According to many studies, berries like blueberries, blackcurrants, raspberries, strawberries and cranberries are the richest in antioxidants which are important toxin-fighting compounds.

Apples, red grapes and cherries, are also a great anti-oxidant food choices.

Enjoy veggies like kale, spinach, brusselsprouts, broccoli, beets, red bell peppers, onions, corn, eggplant, carrots and get healthy from the inside out.

Circulation Boosting Fruit and Vegetables: A healthy blood flow to smaller blood vessels feed skin cells with important nutrients and eliminate toxins that are responsible for cellulite build-up.

Banana, Mango and Orange along with most other citric fruits have high levels of vitamin C. Bioflavonoids in oranges help the blood flow and strengthen the capillary walls. Watermelons are rich in Lycopene which can help prevent a buildup of plaque – a substance that can hinder the blood flow in the arteries.

Pumpkin Seeds are a great source of Vitamin E, they help to improve blood flow. Nuts contain Niacin which essentially gives your blood a boost and helps to prevent circulation problems. And finally, a healthy dose of Garlic can help prevent the accumulation of plaque in the bloodstream and in some cases actively reduce it.

Eliminate Water Retention:

Fruit and Vegetables are good for solving water retention problems, as their special composition prohibits blood vessels from leaking into body tissue. Build up of excessive fluid inside the fat layers provides an ideal condition for the rapid growth of cellulite.

Include fruits such as Mango, Melons, Berries, Apples and Bananas into your daily snack habits and create tasty salads chopping up some celery, cucumber, squash, beetroot and asparagus.

Fruit and vegetables Rich in Lecithin:

Lecithin lowers our bad cholesterol and triglycerides; it promotes blood circulation and strengthens our skin. All together a perfect match against cellulite.

Eat plenty of oranges, grapefruit and apples and the next time you are watching a movie at home, get the hands out of the popcorn bowl and prepare a healthy veggie plate combining spinach, cauliflower, carrots, tomatoes, and red bell papers. Guacamole made out of healthy and rich avocados is a healthy lecithin rich veggie dip too!

Healthy Natural Collagen:

All citrus foods are high in Vitamin C. They help us to promote skin elasticity. Pineapple and Papaya have proven to be the strongest skin elasticity supporters.

Prevent Tissue Damage:

A good amount of papaya fruit in your regular diet helps the skin retain elasticity. Papaine, the substance present in Papaya, repairs damaged skin tissue and helps your skin to look good and feel smooth.

Carrots not only help to repair your damaged skin tissue but they also give you a healthy skin tone.

Start including these healthy fruit and veggie choices into your daily diet and benefit from a natural body boost from the inside out and put an end to all that worry about cellulite spreading!
