Any healthy weight loss program should explain the properties and health benefits of fat, as well as help you lose the excess. So let’s trake a look at fat and cellulite and how one affects the other.
Cellulite is a term used to describe excess fatty deposits on the body, Cellulite is not a medical term. It is a term coined in European salons and spas. Medical authorities have found that cellulite is simply ordinary fatty tissue. Strands of fibrous tissue connect the skin to deeper tissue layers and also separate compartments that contain fat cells.
When fat cells increase in size as excess fat accumulates, these compartments bulge and produce a waffled appearance of the skin.
You can lose excess fat by intervening with a healthy diet, an exercise program and other supportive tools such as body brushing and massage. These naturally lead you in the direction of health with accompanying loss of fat over time. With patience and persistence, you can achieve a body in which only a healthy amount of fat exists.
