I thought the same thing. I thought maybe cellulite was just hereditary and no way around it. But I proved myself wrong when I found Joey Atlas's video. It makes sense that if you do specific targeted exercises to the areas that your not happy with it. I noticed a difference in less than 2 weeks when I started to do these exercises every morning. Here's the video and my personal success story: Easiest Exercises That Get Rid of Cellulite

Has anyone successfully reduced, or even (shock!) got rid of cellulite? It's been an issue of mine for years and I know to a degree it's genetic, but I do feel I have a disproportionate amount for my frame. I'm relatively slim, a UK 10/12, and tend to hoard most of my body fat around my bum and thighs. Unfortunately, my thighs are riddled with cellulite, both front and back.
I have sometimes wondered if this has been made worse by the pill, since I've been taking it for 12ish years now.
I walk a lot, around 5 miles a day, plus do other bits of bodyweight work and a few sprint type efforts, and I eat quite clean, but am a bit of a sucker for some weekend alcohol or bit too much dark chocolate!
Anyone have any tips?
I'd suggest using Hypoallergenic scar therapy. It worked on my niece on her cellulite and marks. Give it a go in combination with good diet and exercise.
The truth is: most people really don’t know what “cellulite” actually is, or, what causes
this odd appearance of the lower body trouble zones…"
This is no surprise as there actually is no such thing as ‘cellulite’… So how do we get rid
of something which doesn’t exist?"
Here’s the answer:
"The word, “cellulite”, was cleverly made-up several decades ago, in a European
beauty-spa, to DESCRIBE the bumpy, shadowy and dimpled appearance of skin in the
lower body trouble zones of the female body. (butt, hips, thighs, legs)"
The beauty spas then started cashing-in and profiting big-time by marketing "beauty"
services and products to get rid of "cellulite".
And if you're like most who've been challenged by this issue, then you probably
already know all of those passive and superficial beauty treatments do not get rid
of the dented shadows and mushy dimples on your buns, legs and thighs."
I'm assuming gelatin, as in *not* Jell-O. But can you make 'healthy' jello, I wonder?
Sure! What my mom always made when we were kids was finger "jello" with plain gelatin and fruit juice. Usually juice we'd made. Of course anything with lots of juice is still going to have a lot of sugar, but I'd consider that pretty healthy. And we all loved it as kids.
I've been thin my whole life and even in my early teens could see cellulite on my thighs. I thought, "aren't you were supposed to be older and fat for that to happen?" Nothing changed until the last 6 months or so. But now mine is nearly invisible. I don't know what affected it, maybe a combo, but here's the things I know I've changed recently:
-wheat free and very little other grains
-worked out some hormonal/mineral imbalances and got rid of all the side effects that I used to have with my period and most of the cramping
-upping my use of gelatin
-heavy lifting and sprinting on a weekly basis
-exfoliating with a sandpaper pad when showering (only every other week or so, and be gentle, just seems to help get rid of all the built up dead skin and may have some of the same effects as dry brushing?)
-moisturizing only with coconut or olive oil
Like I said, not sure how many of these may have affected it, but now in my late 20's, the visible cellulite that I've had since my early teens seems to be gone.
I either have no cellulite or a ton, and I can switch back and forth between states in a matter of weeks depending entirely on how grain-free my diet is and whether I've been lifting three times a week. Water intake seems to help too.
