Upgrade your body.

Use these tips from Dr. Berg to get rid of any unwanted cellulite.

What is Cellulite?

Cellulite is a condition that causes the skin to appear dimpled or lumpy, often described as having a “cottage cheese” or “orange peel” texture.

It is most commonly found on the thighs, hips, buttocks, and abdomen, and occurs when fat deposits beneath the skin push against connective tissue, causing the skin to pucker or dimple.

Cellulite affects women more often than men, and is thought to be caused by a combination of genetic, hormonal, and lifestyle factors, such as poor diet, lack of exercise, and smoking. While cellulite is not a serious medical condition, it can be a source of cosmetic concern for many people.

Cellulite only occurs in the butt, thighs, and hips. Cellulite worsens with pregnancy, hormone replacement therapy, and menopause.

With cellulite, the collagen bands are partially or entirely dissolved. There are also a few other things that could be going on, including:

 • Enlarged fat cells

 • Thin skin

 • Circulation loss

 • Fluid retention

 • Back up of the lymphatic system

 • Atrophy of the muscles underneath

Overall, cellulite is not a fat disorder—it’s a collagen disorder caused by excess estrogen. Two main things are going on:

1. Excess estrogen that destroys collagen fibers and elastin.

2. Excess aromatase that destroys the fibroblasts that make collagen under the skin.

Collagen is a byproduct of a hormonal problem, mainly to do with estrogen. But, other things could be involved too, such as:

 • Too much cortisol

 • Loss of growth hormone

 • Too much insulin

 • Loss of melatonin

 • Deficiency in DHEA

How to get rid of cellulite:

1. Fix the atrophy problem

 • Do lunges

 • Do squats

 • Start retro walking

 • Try sprinting

2. Fix the circulation problem

 • Do rebound exercises

 • Do red light therapy

 • Use a dry brush on your skin

 • Get a massage on the area regularly

3. Fix the collagen problem

 • Do intermittent and prolonged fasting

 • Use an aromatase inhibitor cream (massage onto the area before bed)

Mistakes to avoid:

 • Going too fast when you exercise

 • Working out over soreness

 • Not creating enough stimulus for the muscles

 • Getting poor sleep

 • Not giving it enough time

What are the Benefits of Lunges?

Lunges are a popular exercise that targets the lower body, particularly the glutes, quadriceps, hamstrings, and calves. Here are some of the benefits of lunges:

  • Strengthening the lower body: Lunges target multiple muscles in the legs, including the quads, hamstrings, glutes, and calves, which can help to increase strength and tone the lower body.
  • Improving balance and stability: Lunges require balance and stability, which can help to improve coordination and reduce the risk of falls and injuries.
  • Enhancing flexibility: Lunges can help to improve the flexibility of the hip flexors, which can become tight due to prolonged sitting or other activities that involve sitting.
  • Boosting cardiovascular fitness: Lunges can be done as a high-intensity exercise, which can help to increase heart rate and improve cardiovascular fitness.

Improving posture: Lunges help to strengthen the muscles in the lower back, which can improve posture and reduce the risk of back pain.

Overall, lunges are a versatile and effective exercise that can be adapted to different fitness levels and goals, and can be done with or without weights.

Improving balance and stability: Squats require balance and stability, which can help to improve coordination and reduce the risk of falls and injuries.

Boosting overall fitness: Squats can be done as a high-intensity exercise, which can help to increase heart rate and improve cardiovascular fitness.

Increasing flexibility: Squats require a wide range of motion in the hips, knees, and ankles, which can help to improve flexibility and mobility in the lower body.

Enhancing athletic performance: Squats are a fundamental exercise for many sports, as they can help to improve explosive power, speed, and agility.

Squats are a versatile exercise that can be adapted to different fitness levels and goals, and can be done with or without weights. Incorporating squats into a regular exercise routine can help to improve overall fitness, build strength, and enhance athletic performance.
