What is cellulite and what's the role that toxins play?
Cellulite is the term given to fat deposits just below the skin, typically in the abdomen and lower pelvic region – such as on the thighs and buttocks.
There are a lot of reasons why cellulite is said to appear on your body including hormonal imbalances, not so healthy diet and bad lifestyle choices, age and genetic predisposition.
While each of these factors can play a role in cellulite formation, there is one common denominator to all of these factors - the accumulation of toxicity in your body.
- a poor diet causes cellulite
Think about this: most of the people you know have probably been eating all sorts of processed foods, refined sugars and salts, packaged foods, processed starches, cooked animal proteins, chemicals, pesticides and preservatives for years now. Along with all of these even the higher quality foods are probably eaten in high quantities and bad combinations. I'd be curious to know if you are one of them.
- the environment causes cellulite
Then consider the environmental chemicals and pollutants inside your home and outside in your environment that you have been exposed to for years. Maybe you also smoked, drank and took drugs (even pharmaceuticals) for weeks, months or years at a time.
That equals an awful lot of toxins which your body is not able to eliminate fully while you continue to feed yourself poor quality foods and don’t put special attention and effort into removing this accumulation.
Do toxins play a role in whether you have cellulite?
Your body stores toxins in your fat to help minimize how much toxicity your vital organs are exposed to.
This is the reason why a skinny person with an unhealthy lifestyle can be in more danger of symptoms and sickness than a person who is slightly overweight and has an unhealthy lifestyle.
They have the extra bit of fat for the body to store toxins in so that the precious vital organs and body functions are less compromised by exposure to those extra toxins. The dimples and pockets of your cellulite are also storing toxins.
In a couple of years from now, without making any lifestyle changes for the better you will have accumulated a lot more toxicity in your body in that time and it will show in your cellulite (and a myriad of other unpleasant symptoms).
The key to reducing cellulite is to remove the accumulation of toxins from your body and prevent further build up of toxins.
