One of my favorite parts of cellulite investigating is receiving cellulite success stories. This one is from Kara Wills who got rid of her cellulite through dietary changes alone. It’s a good one!
I too have had terrible cellulite for a long time. I am an ex-athlete and have retained a smallish frame, but the cellulite over the last few years has been getting worse and to the point I won’t wear shorts or bathers, despite having a very beachy family and living on the coast. I decided to stop angsting for hours a day over it, and spending astronomical amounts of money on “cures” and simply changed my diet to be a clean eating diet.
I still have everything I need, its just fresh – I have learnt to make the yummiest salads, delicious ways to cook meat, if I feel like something sweet for desert I have natural (no sugar) yogurt with stevia, cinnamon and walnuts, and its the BEST. When I feel like a soda, I just have sparkling mineral water, and it curbs that craving… I have the WORST willpower ever, but have managed to eliminate bread and sugar from my diet and feel absolutely incredible. Bye bye another dress size and most of all, bye bye cellulite – I have also brought my biological age from 41 down to 28 (I am actually 40 and did a bio age test before starting the clean eating to see what kind of improvements it would make). Given I have been injured and unable to do any exercise over this time, cellulite elimination has come PURELY from the inside. I never, ever thought I would see results like this.
We know the causes and cures for cellulite vary from woman to woman. The key for each woman is selecting a cellulite treatment that directly addresses the cause of her particular case of the blight. Kara made so many positive changes in her diet, it’s hard to tell which one did the trick here. Here are my top two theories.
It sounds like Kara went on a gluten-free diet. We’ve long suspected gluten as a hidden cause of cellulite (see, Is Gluten Intolerance Related to Cellulite?). A lot of women are sensitive to gluten and don’t even know it. Perhaps gluten was Kara’s kryptonite?
Another possibility is that her kryptonite was sugar. In our sugar addict culture, it’s not uncommon for people to have a type of systemic yeast overgrowth called candida. It is fed by the constant consumption of sugar. This wouldn’t be the first cellulite success story we’ve received from a woman who switched to an anti-candida diet (see Cellulite Stories, Declassified, Codename: Vegan Sunset).
Do you have any theories on why Kara’a diet was so successful at helping her get rid of cellulite? Please share your thoughts in the comments below.
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!
