Cellulite has seen its share of quackery and sales pitches for bad and otherwise useless products. To be completely honest, it’s perhaps one of the more non-threatening health conditions that…well, doesn’t do anything other than add unattractive lumps to the wrong parts of your body.
It’s no lie that women are more susceptible to this form of condition (about 9 in 10 suffer from some form of cellulite) and the fact that there are no quick cures to this particular condition makes it all the more desperate.
Cellulite, having no cure and yet salesmen pitching their own brand of medication just makes it all worse than it has to be. Here are a couple of ridiculous and often laughable attempts at making a quick buck with cellulite treatment.
Hilarious as it sounds, there is such a thing as cellulite trainers. These are of course, fitness gurus that have decided to take the plunge and settle in on the desperation of cellulite-inflicted people. But to be specific they tend to focus on strengthening small muscles in your foot and attempt to tone up your calves in order to even out the cellulite.
These types of exercise are for the most part, useless in getting rid of cellulite in the long run. One must remember that cellulite is not deep fat, rather they are misdirected and damaged fat cells that have settled in your dermis instead, thus making these types of exercises ineffective against it. If you do manage to see these types of trainers, don’t sell yourself on the drama, because doctors and medical experts sure know a lot about the body than they claim to know.
Butt and Thigh Workouts
This is perhaps a pervading myth that is still widely believed despite the fact that it was debunked ages ago. This is the belief that working out specific parts of your body reduces fat in those places only; thus giving people the idea that if you have cellulite in your thighs or buns, you’re only going to work out on those specific areas.
Hate to break it to those people, but our body doesn’t work that way. Fat is a unified kind of blubber; and a spot-based exercise wont burn fat in your thighs or pelvic area, it’ll just reduce your fat as a whole. Imagine if you will, a balloon. Our body is the balloon and the air is the fat; no matter what you work out, it will reduce it as a whole.
Athletes work on spot-based exercise in order to strengthen muscles, not reduce fat; ust an FYI for all of you who kept asking.
Separating Fact from Fiction
Although it can allure at times, cellulite cures can come by a lot these days. But the reality is that proper management is more effective than second-rate cures. If you’re under a budget, then that is the only case as laser treatment and even liposuction can cost you a lot in terms of money.
Cellulite is not an easy condition to live with, especially if you’re conscious about your looks.
