Georgia Kapoli, Clinical Dietitian-Nutritionist advises you and reveals to you the diet you should follow.

Summer is an opportunity to replace the heavy and dark clothes of winter with light cheerful ensembles. However, summer is when the stress of dieting and weight loss begins for many, as the extra winter pounds begin to show and the stress of the “bikini figure” beginsj. The fridge is empty of all the treats that usually existed in the winter and in the gyms there are many new registrations in order to create the perfect body!!!

In addition, the desire to lose weight is also accompanied by the need to improve and even eliminate any spots on the body reminiscent of cellulite and sagging. However, our first and foremost goal should be to build the bikini figure and maintain it all year round!

Cellulite is also due to… diet

The right choice of nutrients should be our first concern in order to have a beautiful firm body without blemishes, cellulite and sagging.

Considering that cellulite is an accumulation of fat cells that have lost a significant percentage of their water, its nutritional treatment involves avoiding those foods that promote fat storage and water retention. In particular, it is recommended:

  • Reduced consumption of table salt and foods rich in salt such as canned goods, pasta, chips, ready-made fast-food meals, since salt promotes fluid retention.
  • Limited consumption of alcoholic beverages since excess alcohol in the body intensifies lipogenesis.
  • Careful to reduced consumption of foods rich in saturated fat, such as red meat, sweets, pancakes, animal butter, full-fat dairy products.
  • Reduced intake of foods rich in sugar: candies, pastries, cakes, croissants, etc. Unfortunately sugars are hidden in many foods bread, canned foods, sauces, wines, yogurts, even in foods that theoretically do not contain sugar
  • Abundant consumption of fruits and vegetables which are rich in fiber, which reduces fat storage.
  • The increased consumption of liquids (water, green tea, juices, milk) is also recommended in the fight against cellulite since it facilitates the metabolism of food, so as to avoid excess fat storage, and the elimination of useless substances (toxins) is intensified.
  • Increased intake of foods rich in nutrients that prevent the appearance of cellulite such as: EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid), DHA (dosohexanoic acid), GLA (γ-linolenic acid), vitamin E, folic acid, vitamin B6, flavonoids: salmon, nuts, seeds, olive oil, seafood, green leafy vegetables, green tea, cocoa, whole grains, low-fat dairy.
  • Physical exercise can help to prevent and fight the problem of cellulite since it improves the lymphatic and venous drainage of the tissues as well as contributing to the burning and removal of local fat as well as to the maintenance of normal weight.
