which foods cause cellulite

White sugar does not provide any nutrients, and a lot of nutritionists consider it to be a poison today. It contains what are known as “empty calories” which also contribute to the appearance of cellulite and being overweight. It is a risk factor for developing type 2 Diabetes and it could also damage your teeth. White sugar also acidifies the blood and robs the body of minerals, like calcium, leaving teeth and bones even weaker.

Refined, or table salt

It is especially important to leave table salt out of your diet because it is a refined salt, which only contains sodium chloride, and causes fluid retention and poor circulation. This, too, leads to cellulite. It’s a lot healthier to chose sea salt or Himalayan salt, which are rich in minerals and trace elements that are, in small amounts, necessary for the body.

Another alternative, which not only does not cause fluid retention but also helps eliminate excess fluid, is using ocean water in cooking. You can buy it in herb stores and diet stores, and even at some supermarkets. It can be used in stews, soups, or whenever you want to boil pasta or rice.

Fried foods

Fried foods are high in fat content and in a lot of cases, it’s low quality fat. Whenever you heat fat to too high of a temperature, they create toxic substances that the body tends to accumulate in areas far away from vital organs so as to avoid any risks. We recommend choosing to grill, steam, bake, saute, or cook in a wok.

Alcoholic beverages

Alcoholic beverages do not directly cause cellulite, but they do constrict blood vessels in the skin, which makes the situation worse. They also contain “empty calories”, which lead to weight gain and don’t provide any nutrients. When the body metabolizes them, they are converted into sugar. Alcoholic beverages also promote fluid retention and increase Fat deposits in certain areas (the thighs, arms, abdomen and glutes). Rather than drinking alcoholic beverages, we suggest drinking natural juices, infusions, or if you don’t like those, simply water.
