Diet myth 5: Certain diets can banish cellulite.
Diet facts: Medically speaking, there is no such thing as cellulite. It's a marketing term for plain old pudge that ripples (mostly on the thighs) in varying degrees in 50 to 90 percent of women, regardless of clothing size or fitness level. This clumpy fat results from fat cells stored just under the skin in honeycomb-like structures held in place by bands of connective tissue. The more fat cells stuffed into each honeycomb, the more puckered the texture.
Since cellulite is just ordinary body fat, there is no unique low carb diet trick or cellulite treatment to remove it. The bottom line? A calorie-controlled diet that consists of whole, healthy foods plus exercise will help you lose fat throughout your body.
