No matter the season, a toned bottom and smooth, sculpted thighs rank high on many women’s most-wanted body wish lists. Well, there is good news and there is bad news.

The bad news: Cellulite is not a fat problem. It’s a skin cellular problem, you can have total liposuction and get rid of every bit of regular fat and still have cellulite – you can exercise like crazy, it isn’t going to help.

The good news: you can get rid of cellulite by eating the right food. Foods rich in nutrients like lecithin, essential fatty acids, amino acids and antioxidants will reduce cellular inflammation, squeeze out excess fluids, and, most importantly, increase circulation which prevents cells from migrating to the surface and looking like cottage cheese.


Take it from these celebrities and you will be surprised about the positive effects.

Kate Moss takes her antioxidants in the form of white tea. She combines this with lecithin from eggs and soya and gains some essential fatty acids from nuts and seeds.

Jennifer Lopez loves spinach (lecithin), and claims to eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner when she needs to get her legs in shape. J Lo also loves flax seeds, citrus fruits, iceberg lettuce and olive oil, all essential to give her the full range of nutrients needed to combat cellulite.

Claudia Schiffer drinks in her lecithin from tomato juice and gets her antioxidants from green and herbal teas. Claudia eats lots of citrus fruit and makes sure to eat enough essential fatty acids by dining on avocados and salmon.

Cameron Diaz whips up a homemade vegetable soup. Adding pulses to her diet is a winner for her and she also drinks a lot of green tea.

Jennifer Aniston makes a point of eating lots and lots of essential fatty acids in the form of nuts, seeds, canola oil and fresh tuna. She eats cauliflower and eggs for lecithin.
