Come on, say it out loud....Cellulite.

Ok, let's be brutally honest here. There is no magic cream, gel or for the Harry Potter fans in my life, spell, =) that will get rid of the dimpled fat deposits under the skin that we lovingly refer to as cellulite. I pray that my readers have not spent their hard earned money on these gimicks. These products do not work. Now that we have that out of the way, let's talk about why.

The commercially created name, 'cellulite' is just another word for fat. There, that's it. Cellulite isn't a special kind of fat just for women, or found just in certain areas of the body, it is just fat. It is, lumpy fat deposits straining against irregular bands of connective tissue.

Picture if you will a handful of marbles. Now drop those marbles into a nylon stocking....that is how the fat behaves. The 'fat' marbles press against the tissue making a dimpled affect in it.

Cellulite behaves no differently than other fat. It is burned off just like other fat and will disappear with a clean eating diet and regular exercise.

So! toss out the jars and bottles of magic cream, and jump on your treadmill with a big bottle of water, instead. Best health always, Ruthann
