Cellulite Beating Foods

Cellulite Beating Foods

Beating cellulite requires a disciplined and measured approach which will most likely include increased exercise, a more nutritive diet and giving up or reducing habits like smoking and drinking.

If not already part of your diet, adding these few things can make a difference.


Staying hydrated is important for your body’s normal function. The NHS states that women should aim for 1.6 litres of water a day, and men 2 litres (not including alcohol).

So whether it is tea, coffee or just water, it all counts. Staying hydrated helps your body to remove waste that may otherwise be deposited. Water is still the healthiest choice, so why not try yours with a squeeze of lemon to add an extra twist.

Oily Fish

Whilst it can seem like all fats are a big no-no when you’re trying to beat cellulite, the right fats can help you beat the wrong ones.

Oily fish like salmon and mackerel contain fatty acids that help your body to metabolise fat.


Grapefruit contains methoxylated bioflavonoids, an antioxidant which can help to improve blood circulation as well as address the cellular imbalances that cause the appearance of cellulite.

As an added bonus, grapefruit helps to boost metabolism and increases your body’s ability to burn fat.

Cider vinegar

Detoxifying your body helps to reduce the water retention that can cause oedematous cellulite, as well as giving your body’s digestive system a boost.

Cider vinegar is a powerful natural tonic, adding a few capfuls to your meals can help in the fight against cellulite.


If you’re looking for a quick fix for cellulite then asparagus is the vegetable for you. It has anti-inflammatory properties that can reduce the appearance of your cellulite temporarily.

Celebrities swear by it, eating it before they make any appearances on the red carpet.


Broccoli is a fantastic veg for all sorts of reasons, but for the fighting of cellulite it contains alpha lipoic.

Alpha lipoic is a naturally occurring substance which helps to prevent the hardening of the fatty deposits which go on to cause cellulite. This means that these deposits are easier for your body to break down.

Green tea

This drink is notable for its links to fat burning and
weight loss, as well as its rich level of anti-oxidants and nutrients.

Amongst all of the other good things that it contains there is an ingredient called theobromine which stimulates the body to release stored fats, making them easier to burn with exercise.


One of the most versatile foods around, tomato packs
one hell of a punch when it comes to Vitamin C and also contains lycopene.

Lycopene stimulates circulation, and helps to keep skin firm and taut, reducing the dimpling effect of cellulite.


An apple is a fantastic, low-calorie snack that’s full of
goodness, including lots of anti-oxidants.

They also contain pectin, which is a gel-forming fibre that helps with the digestive processes, particularly in helping your body to breakdown and excrete tougher waste.


Cabbage has a lot of fantastic properties that can
help you in treating cellulite, as well as being a brilliant cleanser and natural antiseptic. Most importantly, cabbage helps to relieve water retention.
