iVillage.com: 6 Foods That Fight Cellulite

1 of 7

Sunflower Seeds

Cellulite happens to a lot women, regardless of their waist size or fitness routine. The appearance of cellulite is largely affected by our genes, age and hormones. But healthy circulation can help improve the appearance of existing cellulite. Bad circulation can lead to fat deposits that are trapped within the connective tissue, which contributes to the “cottage cheese” appearance of cellulite. But did you know there are foods that can give your circulation a boost and help get rid of cellulite? For example, garlic relaxes blood vessels, thinning the blood and improving circulation. Onions and complex carbohydrates also give our circulation a boost. Good circulation in your cardiovascular and lymphatic systems keep your fluid levels in balance, while flushing toxins out of the body, getting rid of those fat deposits and maintaining smoother looking thighs. Use these six other foods to blast away lumpy-looking skin and reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Packed with vitamin E, potassium, zinc and selenium, sunflower seeds also contain vitamin B6, which helps metabolize proteins and strengthen and repair connective tissue. As a natural diuretic, B6 also helps to eliminate excess water and bloating that can make cellulite more visible. Try adding a tablespoon of sunflower seeds into a salad or hot breakfast cereal, or eat them plain as a snack.
