CI: The Cellulite Investigation.
Cellulite BOTM: Our weekly Cellulite Book-of-the-Month research group. Each month we feature a book relevant to cellulite and discuss it in weekly posts.

EAD: The Elusive Anti-Cellulite Diet. Some experts claim the EAD is a mythical creature, but the evidence increasingly indicates it does exist albeit on the brink of extinction.
Cellulite Season: The period from April through May (before swimsuit season) when the media regurgitates the same old articles and segments on cellulite.
SAS: Summer Anti-Cellulite Surge. The period from June through August when we tend to feel extra motivation in efforts to banish the blight.

Cellulite Suspects: The lineup of potential culprits responsible for the modern cellulite epidemic. So far, Cellulite Suspect Number One is trans fat.

The Digestion Dossier: Our case file on all matters of digestive health.
The Fluoride File: Our case file on fluoride, my personal kryptonite.
SCP: Silly Cellulite Pun; often used in the context of “that’s not an SCP, I promise!”
Thanks for stopping by The Cellulite Investigation. Things are a little quite around here at the moment. I’m taking an extended break as I get married and settle into married life and a new home. Don’t worry, I’ll be back soon!
