Ten Minutes With a Trainer

by Josh Perez

Change your lifestyle to smooth out cellulite.  Unless you're an avid exerciser, high carb diets will cause your body to produce more fat. Insulin also stops your body from using fat as fuel and can cause your body to store more water, pushing cellulite out for the world to see.

First get off your butt and move! Consistent physical activity (not 12 oz curls) decreases your body’s insulin levels naturally and makes your muscle cells more receptive to burning up carbs and fats for energy.

Daily exercise also increases muscle mass, which helps decrease body fat. It increases circulation in your lower body, providing more blood to thigh fat cells and enabling them to be used as a energy source. Finally, it improves rigidity of your tendons and muscles, making fatty areas seem smaller and less pronounced.

Keep in mind: all that sitting on your behind, day in and day out, does not do much for improving blood flow to your thighs or making your butt look any smaller. So, get up and move as much as you can every day. Consider investing in a stand-up desk, a physio ball, so your butt can get a break.
