When the dreaded mirror first decides to highlight the bumps and lumps that indicate cellulite it can be a complete confidence destroyer.
The first, and most understandable action, is to cover up your thighs – no matter what the occasion calls for. But this becomes pretty tricky in the summer months…
At the end of the day it’s going to come out at some point – there is only so long you can keep cellulite hidden (no matter how hard you try!).
So, am I stuck with bumpy, lumpy thighs for the rest of my life, if I lose weight will my cellulite go away?
First let’s put your mind at rest a little and give you some hope to grasp onto – yes cellulite can go away.
But unfortunately, it’s not exactly an easy task…

What is Cellulite Caused by?
Cellulite targets both men and woman and there are millions upon millions of effected individuals around the world.
Some people will actually find themselves genetically predisposed to cellulite whilst others will develop it through excess fat below their skin.
Choice of lifestyle seems to be the main culprit behind the appearance of cellulite. If you are a ‘sudden sufferer’ you may want to check out your exercise and eating routines.
Remember, excess fat through poor eating or lack of exercise can be behind the cause of cellulite.
Does Cellulite go Away When You Lose Weight?
Tackling the excess fat your body is holding is a great way to handle the appearance of cellulite. When the excess fat is given the boot your skin will be allowed to pull itself back in and drastically reduce that horrible dimpling effect.
Yeah I know, I know – losing weight is a lot harder than it sounds but it certainly is possible…for EVERYONE! (just read some of the articles we have here on the subject for starters!).
Once you have cleaned up your diet you will be super-surprised at how fast you can trim down your overall weight.
Here is a basic three-pronged attack on weight loss for newbies (don’t worry – it’s Layman’s Terms!):
- Remove sugar from your diet
- Minimize the amount of carbohydrates in your diet
- Avoid buying processed foods
See – you’ve probably heard all three of those pointers before right?
Well that’s for a reason…
Weight loss only becomes difficult if you MAKE it difficult!
To be honest with you, if you manage to just stick to the first point above you’ll see a huge change in your overall body shape and weight.
Most of us are completely oblivious to the amount of sugar we have in our diets – it tends to hide itself very well in modern brands.
Cellulite and Exercise
If you manage to combine a clean eating lifestyle with exercise you will see a drastic reduction in cellulite. Exercise only works if you also dial in your nutrition.
A decent exercise routine will provide you with the following health benefits…
- You will burn large amounts of calories on a daily basis
- You cut into the fat deposits your body is holding onto
- You will build and develop muscle
The goods news is that these three benefits are excellent at cutting down your cellulite or even eliminating it completely.
At the end of the day exercise is good for you – full stop! It doesn’t matter what exercise you finally choose as exercise in general will create muscle and cut into your body’s fat content.
Question: Will Cellulite Go Away on its Own?
Well if the answer to that question was yes…I just wasted the last couple of hours typing this article…
Of course it WILL NOT go away on it’s own!

Diet and exercise are not supposed to be easy – if they were most people would stick to them and there would be no obesity problems.
But, diet and exercise will help you tackle cellulite…so what are you going to do?
