The duo helps to lose weight, which means much of the battle won. With a menu capable of detoxifying, deflating and improving circulation, you go beyond it: it defeats the enemy and prevents it from appearing easily and thus keeps your thighs and butt always smooth.
Why is it important to lose weight?
“In excess, fat increases the size of fat cells by pushing them to the layers closest to the skin. Compressed there, they cause edema (swelling) and the accumulation of liquid between them, which causes ripples to appear, “explains functional nutritionist, pharmacist and phytotherapist Lucyanna Kalluf of the Natunutry Nutrition Center in São Paulo.
Reducing calories is not everything.
You should privilege foods rich in potassium and silicon. “They have a diuretic effect – that is, they prevent fluid retention by reducing edema,” explains Lucyanna. So prepare to eat more green leaves (lettuce, kale, chard, arugula), broccoli, alfalfa sprouts, beets, brown rice, yams, bananas, papaya, tuna, sardines, lentils and beans. And, of course, reduce the consumption of soft drinks, sweets and industrialized foods with excess sodium (inlaid and frozen are champions).
Beware of dyes, preservatives and pesticides. “Many women develop allergies to these substances. The body may still not have enough enzymes to break down the molecules of some types of protein (red meat and milk, for example), which makes it hard for the kidneys to eliminate toxins in the urine and thereby cause more swelling “Warns Lucyanna Kalluf. Therefore, cellulite can also be a result of the sensitivity of the body to what you usually eat.
That is why the anti-cellulite diet needs to offer foods that have the power to detoxify and deflate. What’s more, it should include items rich in fiber, vitamins and minerals that enhance the ability of the intestine to absorb essential nutrients, which are responsible for the proper functioning and renewal of cells.
