Keto Making Cellulite Worse

Dear Carrie: Cellulite

Dear Carrie: Cellulite

Hi again, everyone. Thanks for the comments and emails in response to my last post on menopause and hot flashes. I’m working on getting through your questions and hope to do several posts throughout the summer that speak specifically to issues that matter to women. Now that summer is here for most of the country, it seems like a good time to share a frequent reader issue this time of year. Dear Carrie, I’m 35 and have been Primal for almost two years now. I’ve always been fairly thin, but going Primal in my eating and exercise has helped me get in better shape and build muscle. Unfortunately, I’m still plagued with some cellulite on the backs of thighs and hips. (Can I mention that I hate swimsuit season?) Why is cellulite so stubborn? Every “miracle cure” I’ve ever tried did next to nothing. Tell it to me straight – will this ever go away? Is there anything I can do? Thanks to you and Mark for everything you do with the Primal community. Janet Janet, you’re in good company – including in the Primal community. Cellulite is as stubborn as it is common. As you say, all kinds of products and procedures promise the moon but rarely deliver. The actual physiology of cellulite makes it hard to actually eliminate. Nonetheless, there are some Primal style approaches for both minimizing the look and addressing the causes of it. As Mark likes to say, let’s first break it down. Cellulite describes the sometimes pitted appearance of fat deposits in the body. It’s most often seen on the thighs and derrière, but it can show up the hips, stomach, and upper arms as well. In milder cases, the tell-tale texture only shows up if you pinch the area or if the area is compressed (like when you bend down or cross your legs). In other cases, it’s visible regardless of Continue reading >>

Keto/low Carb

Keto/low Carb

Watch this. #lowcarb #keto is the way to go. Check out my post @crazycatlady:170616 where I wrote about fat and carbohydrates. I've been off the wagon for a bit but I'm back on it and also IF. As someone who has lost quite a bit of weight (and more to go), I have a very jiggly body, loose skin and cellulite etc. I've ordered the Fascia Blaster to try to help with my problems. Can't wait for it to get here! In a low carb/keto diet, you'll need to supplement electrolytes. Many of us are deficient in Mg regardless of our diets so a supplement is recommended. So is Na and K. Fish oil and creatine help too. These will also help to combat keto flu, for example dizziness, general malaise and weariness. I used to make fat bombs, and if I drank coffee I'd have put butter in it. But I don't need additional dietary fat to burn when I want to burn body fat. Low carb, adequate protein, moderate fat for me. Your body is like a car and body fat is the fuel. You have fuel in the tank, and dietary fat is new fuel being added. If the goal is to reduce body fat then you'll need to add less fuel, cuz if you top off the fuel everyday you will never lessen the fuel already in the tank. Getting insulin levels low allows influx and outflux of fat from fat cells. Fat is fat to your body; it doesn't know if the fatty acids are newly ingested or freed from body fat stores. If you eat more fat then you use, at best you won't lose body fat and at worse you increase the amount of body fat stored. I've been guilty of treating this as a diet from time to time, but it should really be a way of life/eating. It helps with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, PCOS, fertility and obesity issues. I'm going to try. It's so easy to eat junk food or processed food cuz they're convenient but... yeah Continue reading >>

How To Finally Get Rid Of Cellulite (4 Proven Methods)

How To Finally Get Rid Of Cellulite (4 Proven Methods)

This past week I was at the beach sippin’ on some good ol Shakeology when I couldn’t help but notice that cellulite was EVERYWHERE. From the “thin” to the overweight, cellulite was peeking it’s ugly head all over the place. And let’s face it, it is ugly. Speaking as a former obese guy I can tell you it’s not just a problem for women! It’s no wonder that the most common question I get from clients is “How do I get rid of this damn cellulite!?”. Before you shove out hundreds, or thousands of dollars in a desperate attempt to get rid of your cellulite, often called ‘cottage cheese’ or ‘dimples of the thigh’, let’s try something simple and MORE effective. Oh wait, did you already spend several dollars? It’s okay, you’ll know better next time. This article contains 4 methods for significantly improving, or even eliminating, your cellulite once and for all. Backed by the latest in cutting edge science, follow these methods and it will be like someone “photoshopped” the cottage cheese right off, only it’s legit. In order to figure out how to treat cellulite, it helps to know what causes it. Cellulite is created by enlarged fat cells pushing up against the connective tissue (made partially of collagen) just below your skin.[1] Since these tissues aren’t very flexible, when the fat cells beneath them expand, they push out on your skin and cause dimples and irregular bumps. And the more fluid and toxins you retain, the larger the cells get, so the worse your cellulite looks. I talk a lot about the importance of reducing inflammatory foods in your diet, and as you do so, you will notice an improvement in your skin quality and appearance. TOP INFLAMMATORY CAUSING FOODS THAT PRODUCE CELLULITE: Sweetened Drinks, Soda, Soy, Trans-Fats, Margari Continue reading >>

How To Get Rid Of Cellulite The Biohacker Way

Even people who are happy with their body and shape often complain about not being able to get rid of cellulite, listing it as one of the top things they would change about themselves if they could. Speaking as a former 300-pound guy, this is not just a problem for women! This is an excerpt​ of a post by Dave Asprey, author of NYT bestseller The Bulletproof Diet. You can read the full article on the Bulletproof blog. Forget buying cellulite products and supplements. Don’t waste your money. Before you spend huge sums of money to try anything from well-marketed cellulite-reducing moisturizers to wraps to expensive med-spa administered light pulses to get rid of these dimpled fat pockets, try out something simpler, cheaper, and effective. (That’s not to say that spa laser treatments, ice, and fat-melting injections don’t have a place if the simple stuff doesn’t work.) What works naturally transforms you from the inside out rather than superficially applying creams or lasers. Three of the most effective ways I’ve found to reduce cellulite that I use on a regular basis are through acceleration training (whole body vibration), Bulletproof Intermittent Fasting, and high-intensity interval training.

My Experience With Ketogenic Diet

My Experience With Ketogenic Diet

I recently followed the Ketogenic diet (click on the link to learn more) for over 6 weeks and I wanted to give you guys my honest opinion and an overview of my own experience. It wasn’t my first time doing Keto, however it was different from the first and second time I tried it. They say 3rd time is a charm, and it sure was this time around. Our bodies are really good at adapting and the more you do something, whether it be exercise or diet, your body becomes better and more efficient at dealing with the situation. In this case, I have noticed a huge difference in the rate that my body adapted to the high fat diet and using fat as a main source of energy, in comparison to my past 2 trials. It felt like my body was telling me: “oh, are we doing this again? I remember, and I can do better this time”. It took me only 3 days to get into Ketosis, however I was really diligent and followed strictly the jump start rules, I have posted for you guys. The entire adaptation period took about 10 days, which is quite fast. Some people take as long as 3 weeks. These were the stages of my transformation to a burning fat for energy: The first 3 days I was peeing every 10 minutes like a 4 year old, and had to drink a lot of water not to become dehydrated. Some people experience headache during this time, but I was ready. I was drinking a lot of water, had salt if I started to feel tired (mostly in the form of home made chicken broth), and I supplemented with Pottasium and Magnesium. After the first 3 days I have already noticed an increase of energy that lasted the entire day. I didn’t feel like I wished I could take a nap during the afternoon, and despite how busy I was, I didn’t feel overwhelmed (we were in the process of moving into our new home, and I have a lot going on w Continue reading >>

Dr.kim’s Ultimate Beginners Guide To Nutritional Ketosis For Weight Loss

Dr.kim’s Ultimate Beginners Guide To Nutritional Ketosis For Weight Loss

So, you want to lose weight? If you’re looking for the ultimate beginners guide to nutritional ketosis for weight loss, you’re in the right place. Perhaps, you’re a “dieting” veteran, but still, that doesn’t mean you are versed in how to get ketotic, stay ketotic, and know exactly what to eat and when to eat it. You are also likely unaware of how long you can safely “do” ketosis, how to prevent side effects, and so on. Don’t fret—I’ve done all of the heavy lifting for you. In this article, find out why “going ketotic” is good for your health and follow the guidelines to achieve ketosis. Be careful you don’t drop weight you don’t plan on dropping if you have an illness you are helping by following this diet. The new way to “do ketosis” is similar to the Atkins diet, which also boosts the body’s fat-burning abilities through eating only low-carb foods, and getting rid of foods high in carbs and sugar. Removing glucose and fructose from “carb foods” will allow the body to burn fat for energy instead of glucose. The major differences between the standard keto diet and the Atkins diet are the use of only healthy fats, less overall protein and no bacon or other processed or seared meat. (Never sear or burn your meat. High temperatures make for toxic fats. This topic is so long I’ll save it for another time). There are several ketogenic diets “out there” for people with mitochondrial based disease, for athletes, and so on. However, for weight loss, we use the standard ketogenic diet. The guidelines are as follows: 70-80% healthy fats, 10-20% protein and 5% carbohydrates. I’ll later translate this into a menu of what you should be eating. Also, remember there is no set limit to fat intake because energy requirements vary from pers Continue reading >>

How To Treat Cellulite

How To Treat Cellulite

Therefore, now that we all know half the world are speaking about cellulite, what’s it, what causes it, how do you grade it and is there any therapy on the market for the situation. For a begin, many could also be stunned to be taught that the time period cellulite just isn’t truly a medical time period and there’s some dispute concerning the etiology of the situation. Some folks declare that French and Italian medical doctors used the time period cellulitis over 100 years in the past to explain a situation of fats deposits situated beneath ladies’s pores and skin, which give a dimpled or peau d’orange look. The situation was extraordinarily widespread and most physicians of the interval thought-about it to be regular and had been extra all in favour of the truth that Felix Hoffman had simply invented Aspirin. The a long time handed, the world went to conflict twice and traditional drugs was not all in favour of treating a situation, which didn’t mirror an underlying sickness. Even within the early seventies, when Martin Luther King cleared his throat and addressed 1 / 4 of one million folks by the Lincoln Memorial, the situation was nonetheless largely remarkable. However, all that was about to vary in 1973, when New York magnificence salon proprietor Nicole Ronsard wrote her guide ‘Cellulite, Those Lumps, Bumps and Bulges you could not lose earlier than’. In that yr, fats should have started to bug the conscience of coastal America as a result of the New York Times greatest vendor non-fiction record greatest vendor for that month was Dr. Atkins’ Diet Revolution.

Adipose Tissue Disorders (atd) And Ketosis

Adipose Tissue Disorders (atd) And Ketosis

I have been wondering if people with ATDs can enter ketosis. Many people on low carbohydrate diets reach ketosis or fat burning when the body no longer uses sugar but breaks down fat into ketones. If you are in ketosis, you should be able to lose fat. So why is it so hard to lose fat in ATDs such as those on this website? I put up a little survery to see if people with ATDs are able to go into ketosis. You can buy ketone sticks to test for ketones in your urine. For example: Shop around for a good price. Some people need to fast for 12 hours before testing their urine after eating a small meal of low carbohydrates the night before. Some may need to fast for three days. Some people may use up their ketones in their blood and not pass any into the urine. TAKE THE SURVEY: Continue reading >>

I Have Developed Cellulite On A Ketogenic Diet. How Is It Possible To Gain Fat On This Diet?

I Have Developed Cellulite On A Ketogenic Diet. How Is It Possible To Gain Fat On This Diet?

This is a really good question - I would be frustrated too in your situation. I think there are several factors that may be playing in to the response your body is having: First, you mention you’re eating less than 20 net carbs per day (which is great!), but you don’t mention your other macros - protein and fat. Remember, Keto is a low carb, moderate protein, and high fat diet with daily targets for all three of these macronutrients. If you’re only counting your carbs, your other macros may be totally out of whack, which could explain why you’ve gained fat. On keto, you’ll find that some people focus on percentages for each of the three macros I’ve listed above (65%-75% fat, 20%-30% protein, and 5%-10% carbs), but I think it’s much easier to calculate exactly how much of each you should be eating each day by counting grams rather than trying to calculate percentages all day. So on keto, the recommended starting point for most people in grams for each of the macros is 20 net grams of carbs, 50–75 grams of protein for women/100–125 grams of protein for men, and at least a 1:1 up to a 1:2 ratio of protein to fat for everyone. But as I said, these numbers are simply starting points. Everyone is different and their bodies will react differently to any dietary change, so these numbers are not set in stone. I recommend trying to hit these targets when you first start keto and then adjusting them if necessary once you’ve been on the diet for a while to achieve maximum benefits. So make sure you’re tracking all three macros. If you haven’t been doing that, try starting to track and see what happens. If you have been tracking all three, ask yourself if you have been hitting the targets I suggested. One thing that can be a problem is getting too much protei Continue reading >>

Update On Fascia Blaster – Part 3

Update On Fascia Blaster – Part 3

So it has been almost 3 months since I have had the fascia blaster. Sorry to disappoint…. I wish I could say that I have seen amazing results with my cellulite, but I have not. While my skin initially seemed tighter, it has since taken on a crepey appearance on my legs and arms that I am not fond of. My belly has shrunk, but I attribute that to losing a few pounds with intermittent fasting, which has helped me to lose over 50 lbs so far.

A couple of things I have discovered, however: Thinner women appear to get faster, better results (based on my perception of publicly available before and after photos). Then again, some women’s cellulite, even that of a skinny woman, just seems stubborn, and won’t go away. I still have at least 30 pounds of fat to lose. It may be that the cellulite will not budge until some of that fat is gone. The fascia blaster has other uses. I use it on my face to lessen the appearance of deep lines, it helps to move edema that is stuck in my legs, it helped lessen pain for my formerly painful-to-the-touch legs, used on my belly it helped reduce my appetite and I am slightly embarrassed to admit that using the fascia blaster somehow helped to increase my libido (this alone is worth it). Not only have I experienced all of the aforementioned benefits, but have heard of other (but not all) ladies who have also experienced these b Continue reading >>

How To Get Rid Of Cellulite On Legs

How To Get Rid Of Cellulite On Legs

The two most frequent topics we get asked about here at Metabolic Effect are belly fat and lower body fat (specifically What Causes Cellulite). I have already written pretty extensively on the physiology of belly fat (You can read those blogs HERE, and HERE and also HERE). In this blog I want to attack the issue of lower body fat and address the “what causes cellulite and getting rid of cellulite” issues particularly. I can’t tell you how often I have been asked question regarding cellulite and the variety of ways I have been asked: What causes cellulite? How do you get rid of cellulite? And is it even possible to get rid of cellulite? Cellulite is really the combination of two factors, fat and collagen fibers. The problem is that this fat and collagen is a little different than the fat and collagen found on a man’s body and even different than fat found on different areas of the female physique. What causes cellulite? Compared to men, women have collagen fibers in their lower body that run vertically up and down like a picket fence. This straight up and down distribution of collagen fibers is the major reason females get cellulite and men don’t. (Estimates are 90% of women have some degree of cellulite compared to 10% of men.) The superficial collagen of men forms more of a mesh. If women have the picket fence distribution of collagen, men have the “chain link fence” distribution. Where women’s fibers run up and down, male fibers crisscross. This is important because the vertical distribution of female collagen fibers, more prevalent in the female lower body, form a sort of pocket in which fat cells then grow (see the picture above). As the fat cells grow in size they are essentially corralled in and packed tightly together by the collagen fibers. Pictu Continue reading >>
