Problem Foods For Cellulite
When following a short-term cleansing diet to try and reduce the appearance of cellulite, avoid these foods.
Experts consider that the stimulant caffeine has a negative effect on lymph flow and blood circulation, as it causes small blood vessels to constrict. This reduces the flow of oxygen and nutrients to the tissues and skin and may inhibit cell metabolism, resulting in a build-up of waste products. The main sources of caffeine include coffee, tea, colas and other sodas.
Alcohol is a toxin. It might taste good, but avoid it if you suffer from cellulite. It simply adds an extra load onto your body’s waste-removal organs and systems.
Omit all processed and refined foods from your cellulite reduction eating plan. For example, avoid foods that include additives, sodium/salt, sweeteners, and other chemicals. All foods should be made with fresh and (if possible) organic ingredients.
With the exception of ‘live’ bio-yogurt, omit all dairy, eggs and meat. Note: unless you are vegetarian, reduction of animal foods should be strictly short term.
Unless prescribed for a medical condition, it is best to avoid all drugs, including over the counter drugs when following a cellulite-friendly diet or eating plan.
