[QUOTE=SarahW;998382]I was looking around for something else tonight, and found this: [URL="http://www.celluliteinvestigation.com"]The Cellulite Investigation | Natural Remedies for Cellulite[/URL]
The author doesn't identify as paleo/primal, but her diet/life match it to a T.
I'm not sure about herbal therapy and stuff like that, but everything else seems practical and useful.[/QUOTE]
Fantastic Website!! I have read about it on t-tapp also, but I keep forgetting to do it.
those of you who have seen a reduction of cellulite - do you eat fruit? if you all don't mind, would you post examples of typical meals and snacks? i'm just starting out on primal.
[QUOTE=Miss Understood;998035]The exercise program is T-Tapp by Teresa Tapp. She recommends brushing your skin with a natural bristle brush to exfoliate, increase blood flow, stimulate the lymphatic system to remove toxins and generally "exercise your skin." Many people advocate skin brushing. You can find some YouTube videos about it, too.[/QUOTE]
I have skin brushed in the past, but never been very consistent about it. The other thing that helps is massaging deeply in the shower with soap and water. If I do that everyday it really helps! You only need to do it for a minute or two on each side.
I keep thinking about trying T-Tapp!
Massage and dry-brushing the skin make a big difference, too. After primal/paleo did the most of it, I got a massage and it went away for two weeks. I then got another massage, and backed that up with daily dry brushing (butt and upper thighs), and i haven't had cellulite there since. :)
It doesn't take long, and I just do it before bed as part of my night time routine.
I do the skin brushing right before taking a shower
i'm basically just primal.
I have breakfast -- eggs, butter, veggies, bone broth -- and dinner -- meat, big salad, fruit for dessert (usually oranges or berries with coconut cream). Sometimes I have a snack of nuts (hand full or so), and sometimes I have oil instead (usually coconut oil, taken "flavorlessly").
I do yoga and walk as my primary work-outs.
[QUOTE=PandaRose;997925]I always thought that cellulite was something all women eventually had to come to terms with. I just squeezed my butt cheeks together in front of the mirror, and didn't see a single dimple. There used to be PLENTY. Primal living does amazing things![/QUOTE]
Any pics? LOL (kidding)
