How to get rid of cellulite?
I get this question all the time from women. They ask why cellulite happens and how they can get rid of it.
And I know it’s possible to get rid of it because we’ve had women in our program who have done just that.

In this podcast episode, I talk to Emma Sgourakis, my good friend, nutritionist, and the co-founder of @saturee_officail, about why cellulite happens and how you can get rid of it.
Cellulite happens when the tissue becomes more permeable. This means the cells become leaky and lose their structure.
This is often because of estrogen dominance.
You can become estrogen dominant from not eating enough, not eating enough of the RIGHT foods, from stress, overexercising, and more. For example, if you don’t get enough Vitamin A or enough calories in your diet, your body is unable to make progesterone which balances estrogen so you end up estrogen dominant.
In this state, the body doesn’t heal well.
Estradiol, a certain type of estrogen, increased fat cells and causes fibroblasts, the cell that synthesizes the structural matrix, to become ineffective.
This means you end up predisposed to edema, leakiness, rigidity, and nonfunctional cells, and that tissue sits in pockets, particularly around the thighs and bums where you have that dimply look of cellulite.
Easy ways to reduce estrogen dominance is by:
➡️ eating the carrot salad daily.
➡️ eating MORE food.
➡️ reducing PUFAs (swap out cooking oils for butter, ghee etc).
➡️ eat more frequently (every 3-4 hours).
➡️ consume sugar and salts (salt helps reduce excess estrogen).
➡️ eat more gelatine- containing foods, like bone broth and collagen.
