Q: My friend is getting really upset about her body! She has cellulite and I was wondering how I could advise her to get rid of it?

A: Tell her to skip the creams, expensive spa treatments and pills, and instead work to burn it off. Strength training and cardiovascular training along with good eating habits goes a long way in diminishing cellulite. Not only does it reduce fat, but helps her to gain muscle tone. Good muscle tone gives great shape to the body while diminishing fat. Cellulite is subcutaneous fat laced with fibrous tissue and weak unused muscles give the fat on top of them a "mushy" look. She may not see a complete exit of this fat, but with dedication and hard work she can reduce it greatly. If she needs help in beginning an exercise program, have her try a trainer or go to the gym with a partner. Sometimes having a buddy to work out with can keep you motivated. There are many forms of other exercise without the cost. Simply walking with small hand weights is also an option. For more motivation and many fitness options, as well as a personal work out tailored to your needs, check out If she is really desperate to get rid of it quickly there is always the option of liposuction. However, she should consult her physician and think long and hard before attempting this measure. The bottom line is, there is hope!
