Ladies kicking legs in air, vintage, Cellulite InvestigationWelcome!  I’m Melissa.

I launched The Cellulite Investigation back in 2009, determined to figure out why I have more than my fair share of cellulite.   I’m excited to share with you what we’ve uncovered so far.

If you found your way here, chances are you are searching for real answers to your questions about cellulite.  There is no shortage of websites offering information about this common condition, and yet so often their answers are less than satisfying.

Many of these sites claim cellulite is fat that you can work off through exercise or by restricting your calorie intake.  Other sites sell miracle anti-cellulite creams, usually accompanied by persuasive (often fictional) client testimonials.  Still others blame cellulite on genetics or aging and insist it’s a condition that most of us must simply accept as a fact of life.

But if cellulite is simply fat, then why do so many thin women have cellulite while heavier women do not?  Why does a woman’s cellulite often increase when she loses weight?  If cellulite is genetic or an inevitable part of the aging process, why has the percentage of teenage women with cellulite so dramatically increased in the last few generations?

In the photo above, the smiling beauty third from the right is my grandmother.  Cellulite was a rarity when she was that age.  Ask any woman who remembers the 1940’s if cellulite was a common condition among her high school friends.  Some of us want to believe it was, but if we are honest with ourselves we have to admit that cellulite is increasing in our society at an alarming rate —even faster than our waistlines.  Why aren’t more of us asking why?

If you are skeptical about the conventional view of cellulite, then you are in the right place.

I’m glad you’re on the case with us!
