Cellulite can be the bane of many a woman's life. It can appear at any time, on any woman, regardless of their natural weight. Cellulite has nothing to do with obesity, but more to do with the breakdown of the collagen fiber in your muscles. This is caused by two things that are generally accepted in the medical world these days; hormones and aging. As the body naturally increases and decreases the hormones in a woman's body each month, this can cause the breakdown of the collagen fiber. While aging will lead to these fibers becoming weaker. All is not lost though, it is possible to get rid of cellulite.

The first thing that you need to do is learn how to lower your intake of rubbish foods. Stop eating all processed meats that includes sausage, bacon, and ham. Also processed things such as cookies, cakes, cheese, pre-made meals and tinned foods, as these are all full of salts and fats your body does not need. If you are trying to get rid of cellulite, then you really have to work hard at stopping the fat that gets deposited as cellulite getting into your body in the first place.

Now saying that you need to get rides of the fat above does not mean that you have to get rid of all fat, as your body does need some. It is fine to eat what are known as the good fats, and this includes ones like omega-3 and extra virgin olive oil. You can get natural omega-3 in fish such as salmon, trout, sardines and mackerel.

Smoking has been shown to make cellulite worse due to the toxins it puts into your blood. This in turn effects the muscles and blood vessels in your body. Alcohol also has a negative effect, as it is full of sugar, and this will be broken down and stored as fat, and you can guess where?

One of the most effective ways to get rid of cellulite is to exercise When you exercise it does two things, it strengths up what muscle fiber you do have, and produces new ones as well, and this will help to naturally remove the cellulite as it gets put under constant pressure.

So what are the best exercises to do?

• Walking – Science has now shown that walking is one of the best exercises that you can do. This should come as no surprise as the human body has gone through evolution over thousands of years just so that it can walk, so it is a natural exercise.

• Cycling – This exercise really works the thigh and buttock regions, and you are best using a real bike instead of an exercise bike, as it works on more muscles.

• Kickboxing – Another great exercise for working on the thigh and bum area, and it is also great for women who want to work off a lot of steam.

cellulite is not something that is with you for life, a change in your diet and exercise can remove it within a few months.
