Have you rummaged through the internet like a blood hound to find solutions for Cellulite?
Contemplating if you have enough cling wrap in your kitchen to cover your body as you attempt a new Pinterest trick to reduce the appearance of the dimples on your Derrière.
First off, you’re not alone! Cellulite occurs in about 80-90% of women and is the result of fat deposits pushing through the connective tissue (collagen fibers) beneath the skin. These lumps and dimples in the skin usually appear near the buttocks, upper legs, abdominal area and upper arms. To add insult to injury, only 10% of men have cellulite, even overweight men have little to no cellulite. This is because they have been dealt the upper hand genetically when it comes to their type of fat and their collagen fibers. At this point I am thinking, seriously, is childbearing and intense labour pains really not enough? Before we curse all men to their doom, I can confidently say to you, I have a proven treatment for Cellulite. No pain, no lasers, no needles and categorically no false claimed creams. But before we move to the revolution we begin with education.
Compared to men, women have collagen fibers in their lower body that run vertically up and down like a picket fence. This straight up and down distribution of collagen fibers is the major reason females get cellulite and men don't. The superficial collagen of men forms more of a mesh. If women have the picket fence distribution of collagen, then male fibers run in a crisscross formation allowing the fat cells to stay on the other side and not protrude through the “mesh” so to speak. This is important because the vertical distribution of female collagen fibers, more prevalent in the lower body, form a sort of pocket in which fat cells then grow and become stuck in. As the fat cells grow in size they are essentially corralled in and packed tightly together by the collagen fibers. This tight packing of fat inside the "collagen pockets" creates the characteristic dimpling of the skin. If you are still having trouble picturing this, imagine filling your pockets stuffed full of marbles and rub your hand along the outside. Feel the bumpy protruding marbles? That gives you an idea of what I am talking about.
The fat in the lower body of women is also different than that in men. Women have about 9 times more alpha-adrenergic receptors associated with their fat tissue compared to beta-adrenergic receptors. Adrenergic receptors are bound by the body's most potent fat burning hormones - catecholamines. Okay, before I lose you, lets explain these receptor thingies. Enter Hormones for Dummies Volume 2, if you have not read Volume 1 yet you can do so here.
Adrenergic receptors are membrane-bound proteins that mediate the peripheral and central actions of norepinephrine and epinephrine. By virtue of their location, either presynaptically or postsynaptically on neurons or effector organs such as the heart, vasculature, and adipose tissue, this class of receptors mediates a wide range of important homeostatic responses. English please…. basically, these receptors control what cells do in your body. Capiche?
Catecholamines are hormones made by your adrenal glands, which are located on top of your kidneys. Examples include dopamine; norepinephrine; and epinephrine. Your adrenal glands send catecholamines into your blood when you're physically or emotionally stressed. When the catecholamines interact with beta-receptors, fat is released from fat cells. When they bind to alpha-receptors, fat release is drastically slowed. Remember that women have more alpha receptors than men therefore more anti fat burn receptors. Again, thank you universe.
You can also thank the hormone estrogen for the large number of alpha-receptors in the lower body of women compared to men. Heavy estrogen and progesterone increase fat deposition around the lower body and yes, increased prevalence of cellulite as well. In short making Cellulite an 80 – 90 % problem for women predominantly.
What this means for women is that when they lose weight, they will often lose weight faster from the upper body (bust, waist, and arms) compared to the lower body (hips, thighs, and butt). That is the double whammy of cellulite. Vertical collagen fibers combined with a tendency to store fat primarily in the lower body and a more difficult time losing it is what causes cellulite.
Now the question is how to get rid of cellulite, or how to reduce cellulite?
The truth of the matter is, to get rid of cellulite really takes a more nuanced approach than just losing lower body fat. And I am going to be honest with you, controversial and tropical treatments do not work. Well to my satisfaction anyway. What I can say with certainty is that treating Cellulite within rather than from the outside delivers better and clinically proven results.
To do this you need to do what you can to block or bypass the alpha-adrenergic receptors in the lower body. This can be done through a very low carb diet along with smart supplementation. Carbohydrates are the major simulators of the hormone insulin, and insulin is a promoter of alpha-adrenergic receptor activity. So, lower the carbs and you lower the insulin and suppress the action of the alpha-adrenergic receptors speeding fat release from the lower body. This is what makes Sprezzatura effective for weight loss. Ingredients are specifically combined designed for Carbohydrate blocking, and Metabolic Syndrome Improvement (Insulin resistance), among other important functions.
Finally, the coup de grace, a powerful addition to the Sprezzatura range. CelluCut.
Cellucut is designed to visibly reduce the appearance of cellulite and decrease the size of waist and hip circumference. The ground-breaking trademarked ingredient used in CelluCut is uniquely obtained from a Cantaloupe melon, exclusively grown in the South of France. Through 2 Clinical Trials this trademarked ingredient proved to be effective in the visible reduction in the dimpled effect of skin on the thighs and buttocks.
In conclusion, tan cellulite does not look better than pasty white cellulite. Now there is an oral supplement to treat Cellulite from the inside that delivers results, and let’s be honest skirt length should not be determined by your cellulite, not so?
