Excess cellulite – people have tried almost every trick in the book to get rid of it no matter how expensive or silly the remedy may seem. Whether it’s diet and exercise or innovative slimming products in a bottle, if it claims to reduce the appearance of cellulite, most people will try it. Thankfully, you don’t need to spend thousands on liposuction and other invasive surgeries to get a happier, slimmer you.
5 Natural Methods for Slimming Down
- Drink lemon water in the morning.
Lemons pack enough vitamin C to boost your immune system and ward off common colds. Moreover, these yellow fruits also help to break down your food and speed up weight loss. They promote quick energy bursts, clean out internal waste and reduce hunger cravings. Because you’re adding lemon to water, you’re also hydrating your body and aiding in healthier skin.
- Eat a fat-busting breakfast.
Start your mornings off right with foods that promote weight loss, such as blueberries, oats, low-fat cottage cheese and Greek-style yogurt. Coconut oil, which contains medium-chain fatty acids, increases enzyme production to help break down fats. Adding coconut oil to your meal can help boost your energy while fighting cellulite.
- Apply a firming cream.
Magazines and television commercials have announced miracle firming creams for decades, but do they really work? According to a dermatologist interviewed by Allure, these creams may not transform your body, but they will make you appear slimmer. Body-firming creams work by plumping up the skin in areas where it’s dimpled and uneven. As your skin tightens, it looks smoother and gives the impression of having a slimmer, smoother body.
- Perform cellulite-focused exercises.
No single exercise can target and remove cellulite from a given area of your body. However, you can perform many different exercises to create smoother and firmer thighs, buttocks, arms and legs. Lunges, squats and other whole-body exercises make your muscles firm while reducing excess body fat. Supplement your exercises further with cellulite creams.
- Try intermittent fasting.
Not everyone likes the thought of fasting to slim down, but did you know you fast every day? When you go to sleep, you fast throughout the night and break your fast once you eat breakfast, hence the name. If you eat your last meal of the day at 8 p.m., you can increase the fasting time in which your body can burn excess fat.
It doesn’t take trips to a plastic surgeon or downing chemical fat burners to slim down. By changing your diet, doing a few cellulite exercises and experimenting with body-firming creams, you can appear slimmer before you know it and improve your mood and overall quality of life.
