Cellulite… may ruffle some feathers but am wanting a SCIENTIFIC viewpoint. What does everyone believe contributes to this especially for females on legs? Is it more mater of calories or the specific ingredients in food? keen to learn more and hear what people have found through trail and error with clients
It is normal fat under the skin that pushes through the connective tissue. There are many contributing factors to why some have it and why some do not. Fair skinned individuals are more prone. Hormones contribute to it. Yo-yo dieting, excessive body fat, genetics, age, lack of collagen, poor diet, lack of exercise etc. Once the fat has pushed through the connective tissue it is hard to entirely get rid of the lumpy appearance. It can be reduced to an extend but not eliminated once there without medical intervention and surgery is not 100% promised.
at cells and myofascia… foam roll that shit hard.
I snowboarded off a cliff once and hit a tree sticking out of the cliff so hard I thought I broke my femur. When all was said and done I had a huge dent in the side of my leg. After it didn’t go away for a couple months I went to the doctor and he said and I quote “you destroyed the fat cells in your leg right there so it’ll be like that forever”.
uuuuuummmmm….so basically what you’re saying doc, is that THAT is what my leg is supposed to look like if I didn’t have any fat??? and if I just beat the crap out of the rest of my leg it’ll look skinnier and smooth and perfect forever?? ok dokey. I’ve been punching my legs regularly since 😉 foam rolling helps a lot to keep the cellulite at bay.
I also firmly believe in eating lots of olive oil, butter, and gelatin to improve elasticity in the myofascia.
