In this video, I answer a common question that I get often: “How do I get rid of cellulite?”
I've got a few tips on how to get rid of cellulite but also a few tips on how to stop caring about cellulite.
Cellulite on the back of my legs is one of the things that got me started on my fitness journey to begin with. Years ago, after I’d had a few kids, I was unsatisfied with my body. I started eating low calories and doing a lot of cardio. My goal was to get back to my high school weight. I reached that, but I still was unsatisfied with my legs. I'd done all that work to get smaller and I thought that I would like what I saw, but I still saw cellulite. Getting smaller did not help that issue at all.
It occurred to me that I needed to start putting muscle on my body. As a teenager I had been a swimmer and lifted weights and I had nice legs. It didn't occur to me back then, but after I went the cardio and “getting smaller” route, I realized that it was muscle that was causing my shapely legs then.
One way to get rid of and minimize cellulite is to strength train and start putting muscle in your glutes, hamstrings, and build nice strong legs overall. Building muscle is going to fill out your legs, fill out your skin, and you're going to start liking the shape of them a little better.
Fuel Your Body
The other thing that can help with cellulite is to get leaner...not just smaller. Cellulite is fat, but there is a way to eat to fuel your body to build muscle and burn fat. That way you stay strong, healthy, and build a solid shape.
