Celebs` secrets to banishing cellulite
Melbourne: Wanting to maintain a toned bottom and smooth and sculpted thighs is every woman`s wish, and here to help are tips that celebrities received on how to get rid of cellulite.
Dermatologist to the stars, Dr Howard Murad has been advising celebrities on how to stay toned, and he explains in Body and Soul magazine why women as skinny as Kate Moss can still get cellulite.
"Cellulite is not a fat problem. It`s a skin cellular problem, you can have total liposuction and get rid of every bit of regular fat and still have cellulite - you can exercise till the cows come home, it isn`t going to help," he said.
Murad goes on to explain why his methods work such wonders, and how you too can get rid of cellulite, by eating foods that will help rid our bodies of lumps.
"Foods rich in nutrients like lecithin, essential fatty acids, amino acids and antioxidants will reduce cellular inflammation, squeeze out excess fluids, and, most importantly, increase circulation which prevents cells from migrating to the surface and looking like cottage cheese," he explained.
The key to beating cellulite, he says, is to strengthen the skin through the food we eat.
Kate Moss takes her antioxidants in the form of white tea. She combines this with lecithin from eggs and soya and gains some essential fatty acids from nuts and seeds.
Jennifer Lopez loves spinach (lecithin), and claims to eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner when she needs to get her legs in shape. J Lo also loves flax seeds, citrus fruits, iceberg lettuce and olive oil, all essential to give her the full range of nutrients needed to combat cellulite.
Claudia Schiffer drinks in her lecithin from tomato juice and gets her antioxidants from green and herbal teas. Claudia eats lots of citrus fruit and makes sure to eat enough essential fatty acids by dining on avocados and salmon.
Cameron Diaz whips up a homemade vegetable soup, which contains some of the most important foods on Murad`s list. Adding pulses to her diet is a winner for her and she also drinks a lot of green tea.
Jennifer Aniston makes a point of eating lots and lots of essential fatty acids in the form of nuts, seeds, canola oil and fresh tuna. She eats cauliflower and eggs for lecithin.
