I have cellulite!

I kickbox every day and eat right, but it doesn’t go away. I need help covering it up when I wear shorts.

According to Dr. Ken Connor of Newport Beach, Calif., “Cellulite is not hereditary.” These cottage cheese-like dimples are signs of an unhealthy lifestyle. Cellulite is not a “fat” issue – it’s more of a lymphatic issue. “So, cellulite doesn’t mean you’re fat – just toxic!” says Dr. Connor.

He recommends drinking lots of water and exercising – try jumping on a mini tramp or skipping rope. Also, cut out fried and processed foods – pass on the Big Mac, and opt for a turkey sandwich with an apple instead. Avoid wearing super tight clothes and underwire bras, if necessary. Both are constricting and reduce the flow of toxins, causing backups.

If you still don’t see any improvements, try a detox bath (available at any major health food store, like Wholefoods), which pulls toxins from the blood and reduces the lumpy look. Or try lecithin right before a big meal – it emulsifies fat.

Oh, one more piece of bad news: “None of those topical creams on the market will make a difference,” says Dr. Connor. “There is no quick fix to cellulite reduction. But cellulite is not a permanent condition – you can make a difference.”
