Question Cellulite Cream

Has anyone tried this cream that is supposed to reduce cellulite? How about the pills? If so, how effective is it? Any side effects? I am dieting and exercising but need all the help I can get.

Default Don't Waste Your Money!

Cellulite creams, Cellasene capsules, body wraps, Endermologie - none of these work... check this article from out:

And just so you know EXACTLY what cellulite IS, here's a Q&A from a great (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED BY MRSJIM!!) website at - check it out:

Q. Hi John, Excellent site!! I have a question about cellulite. I have it and HATE it!! I am thin-5'6" 122 lbs. but I have major cellulite on my buttocks and it's now creeping down my leg. I have been told I can't ever get rid of it and can only stop it from getting worse. Is this true? I truly appreciate any feedback you can provide.

A. First, cellulite is simply skin dimpling which occurs when connective tissue is overwhelmed by fat deposits. The medical literature doesn't say it is permanent, or that you can't do anything about it. Rather it says there is "no topical medication or manipulative process to which advanced cellulite visibly responds". Topical medications are basically creams and such, while manipulative processes are things like massage. These approaches are trying to get at the cellulite from the outside-in, and yes, that's a losing battle. But you're not doing that are you? You're working on changing your body from the inside-out. Now, even though you're thin elsewhere, you do want to work specifically on fat loss, and some of the tweaking on my page will help. The weight training will also help, by building firm new tissue under the skin. This is not something that's in the literature, but it's clear from the experiences of people like Kelly Adair. It certainly wasn't hopeless in her case. Again, I think the "cellulite is hopeless" notion is widespread precisely because everybody wants a magic lotion instead of working on transforming from the inside-out. Hope that helps!
Hope that helps you out...

If those creams worked, none of us would have cellulite!
