Anti cellulite exercise can be effective with the proper diet and possibly a few minor lifestyle changes. Self-proclaimed experts have a variety of different suggestions, but in order to be effective cellulite reduction exercises should target the, buttocks, thighs, abdomen and pelvic region, the areas where the deposits are most likely to occur. Here's a look at what a complete plan would include. Nutritional Factors Reduce the amount of fat, simple carbohydrates (white bread, sugar, etc) and salt in your diet. Increase the amount of dietary fiber that you consume. That would include fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Remember that bread of any kind is not a whole grain; oatmeal is. If it looks like a grain, then it's a whole grain. If it looks like plain old bread, it's processed and bleached flour. Anti cellulite exercise will be more effective if you incorporate it with a high protein, low fat, low carb diet. Clothing and Circulation You should never wear underwear that fits tightly around your thighs when you are doing cellulite reduction exercises or at any other time. It limits the blood flow and encourages cellulite's formation. Wearing thongs, boy shorts and sleeping naked can reduce the impact that underwear plays. Supplements, Herbs, Vitamins & Minerals Dietary supplements can be a beneficial addition to anti cellulite exercise. The goal of these supplements is to improve circulation, the body's fat-burning ability and increase energy levels. That way, you'll feel like working out. Supplements that are beneficial include L-carnitine, ginkgo biloba, rutin, Indian chestnut and caffeine, if you are not already drinking a number of caffeinated beverages, every day. Just as a side note, there is no evidence to indicate that topically applied lotions are effective. Cellulite Reduction Exercises Technically speaking, any kind of physical activity will help prevent and reduce its appearance, but one of the most effective cellulite reduction exercises is leg lifts performed on your side, with your hips at a 90 degree angle. That works on the inner and outer thighs. Crunches of all kinds work on the pelvic area. Lunges work on the hips and butt. If you are not accustomed to this type of activity, you need instruction. A DVD or an e-book will show you the proper form. If you don't use the proper form, you can injure your back. Since sitting and standing in one place increases cellulite's formation, a back injury can add to your problem. So, learn how to do an anti cellulite exercise, before you begin.
