Due to muscle wasting, wrinkles, increases in the appearance of cellulite occur. Do not try to lose the weight you have gained for years or in 5-6 months in a few weeks… Imagine that when you hold your breath, you will feel the need to take a deeper breath… Diets that are practiced with extreme hunger are also similar to this.

It is inevitable that you will gain weight afterwards. Get a healthy eating habit by consuming balanced portions suitable for you from all food groups. Choose the right carbohydrates. Multi-grain, oat, or rye bread, such as whole grain breads, whole-wheat pasta instead of white flour pasta, white rice, brown rice or bulgur wheat instead of the more accurate will be the choice you feel dessert, snack food, or if you want a large glass of water first or sweetener added fruit/herbal tea. If your request is ongoing, vegetables and fruits should be the first choice.

In addition, dark green leafy vegetables such as purslane, walnuts, hazelnuts, etc. nuts also contain omega-3. To prevent the formation of cellulite, you can use lean meat, semi-fat or skimmed dairy products, etc. give preference to low-fat foods. Consume 7-9 servings (at least 5 servings) a day, especially from vegetables and fruits suitable for the season. Since each color of food has different benefits, pay attention to diversity. Vegetables and fruits fight cellulite formation with the vitamins and minerals they contain. Stay away from the frying method, both in terms of vitamin loss, high calorie intake, and the risk of developing carcinogens. Do not neglect the consumption of about 2.0-2.5 liters of water per day to regulate circulation, which is one of the important factors in the formation of cellulite, metabolic rate is not reduced, digestion, absorption, cell, tissue, organs and systems work, waste is removed from the body and body temperature is balanced. Do not add sugar to your drinks. Limit alcohol intake, as it can increase cellulite formation… Be sure to be more active so that cellulite does not form, if it has occurred, it will decrease. Do moderate-intensity exercise for at least 30 minutes every day or every other day. The ideal is to gradually increase this amount to 45 minutes – 1 hour per day.
