8 Weeks to a Healthy Toned Body

KINGS ROAD-583x837.5

The Organic Pharmacy has put together an 8-week plan to reduce the appearance of cellulite. Take the first steps towards a dimple-free body today.

At some point in almost every woman’s life, no matter what shape or size she is, cellulite will develop. Unfortunately we’re all prone to it (unlike men who don’t store fat in the same way) and some of us even more so as a result of our genes.

Fortunately though, there’s lots we can do to improve its appearance, and with summer approaching steadily that’ll be good news to everyone! Start now, and in 8 weeks, you could have a healthy toned body you’re proud of.

What Causes Cellulite?

Healthy Aidpose Tissue Vc Cellulite

Normal healthy skin has a subcutaneous layer of fat beneath it, and is connected to the underlying muscle by fibrous tissue. Cellulite appears when the fat cells between these fibrous cords push up against the skin while the long, tough cords are pulling down, creating an uneven surface.

When the body stores too much fat, these fat cells will also start to constrict the blood and lymph vessels, which impairs the drainage of water and toxins. This water retention, or oedema, can also give the skin a dimpled, orange peel effect.

The main causes of cellulite (besides being a woman and its being hereditary) are:

  • Damage to blood vessels and poor circulation
  • Collagen and elastin changes surrounding fat cells
  • Hypertrophy of fat cells (they grow bigger)
  • Oedema
  • Toxin accumulation and poor lymph movement

The Stages of Cellulite

When cellulite develops there are actually four stages. Stages one to three can be reversed, while stage four can be very stubborn. Fortunately stage four is very rare and stages one to three are much more common.

The key changes that occur are:

Stage 1

Stage 1 Cellulite

Capillaries become more permeable

 

  • Blood plasma leaks between fat cells
  • Oedema and fluid leakage causes swelling
  • Collagen and elastin start to break down
  • Fat cells start to accumulate and group together

 

Stage 2

Stage 2 Cellulite

 

Capillaries and blood vessels become more permeable

  • Blood plasma leakage between fat cells continues
  • Oedema and fluid leakage continues
  • Collagen and elastin break down continues
  • Fat cells start to clump together and move upwards.

Stage 3

Capillaries and blood vessels become more permeable

Stage 3 Cellulite

Capillaries and blood vessels become more permeable

  • Blood plasma leakage between fat cells continues
  • Oedema and fluid leakage continues
  • Collagen and Elastin break down continues
  • Grouped fat cells start to form nodules with fibrous bands

Cellulite Treatment

Treating cellulite can take time and to see results a minimum of 8 weeks is needed, particularly if stages of development are more advanced. The key to achieving a firmer more toned body is multi-layered, and as well as exercise and diet includes:
