Plant-based diet for cellulite

Food for cellulite

What is the proper diet to get rid of cellulite?

Diet for cellulite must be based on the following principles:

  • High in potassium and low in sodium: Sodium causes fluid accumulation in the body. Potassium helps to remove fluid.
  • Low in simple carbohydrates and low in fat: Simple carbohydrates and fats cause an increase in cellulite
  • Rich in iron: Iron delivers oxygen to the cells. You need oxygen to burn fat. Iron deficiency results in the increase of cellulite.
  • Rich in fiber: Fiber slows the absorption of food, so that it is not stored as fat.

Can you eat fruit in the diet for cellulite?

Fruit is rich in sugars, therefore fruit consumption should also be under control.

Is sugar appropriate in the diet for cellulite?


Sugar and sugary foods must be avoided in cellulite diet

Sweets and chocolate must be avoided in cellulite diet

One should reduce the consumption of sugar and other carbohydrates such as honey and replace them with natural sweeteners like stevia.

Is milk suitable in the diet for cellulite?


Potatoes are very good for cellulite

What about potatoes?

Potatoes are absorbed more slowly than the above foods, therefore they are suitable for the diet of cellulite. They are also rich in potassium and low in sodium so it favors the elimination of liquids.

  • A cellulite diet is based on foods with low fat, which do not favour obesity, and low in sugar which is rapidly absorbed and stored as fat.
