Men and women (mainly women) all over Ocala suffer from cellulite in one area or another on their body. And we understand how embarrassing it can be. After all, we live so close to amazing Florida beaches, and we know you want to look your best in your swimming suit and short shorts.
At Advanced Aesthetics Med Spa of Ocala, many of our patients are curious about whether or not they can get rid of cellulite by just dieting and exercising. One would assume so, but is it really that simple? Keep reading to learn a little more about this frequently asked question.
Can Diet and Exercise be the Answer to All of My Cellulite Problems?
The truth is that while diet and exercise do play a part in the amount and type of visible cellulite you have, these two things are not effective cellulite treatments in and of themselves.
In fact, if you go on a crash diet and drastically reduce the number of calories you eat in a day, you will most likely regain your lost weight within the first 6 months after you give up the diet.
The reason behind yo-yo weight fluctuations that occur when you participate in extremely low- calorie diets is that when you drastically decrease calories you not only reduce the fat in your body, but you also experience muscle loss. Not only that, but when you suddenly make a huge change in your calorie intake, your body responds by entering survival mode and conserving fat, and that’s definitely not what you want.
When it comes to exercise, many people assume that they need to run their fat off. While cardio is incredibly beneficial to your health, if your goal is to burn fat, you should concentrate on strength training in order to build muscle mass. Weight training is proven to be much more effective at burning fat than cardio exercises are.
We, at Advanced Aesthetics Med Spa, recommend eating a balanced diet full of protein and healthy carbs and fats, along with participating in a regular exercise program combining cardio and weight training. This healthy lifestyle works wonders at reducing visible cellulite when combined with one of our advanced cellulite treatments.
