If you’ve wondered aloud as you are pouring that steaming cup of morning Joe, “Will cutting out this coffee make me lose weight?” then you are not alone. The conundrum that coffee presents does raise some health questions, and with those of us who struggle with cellulite, it’s easy to wonder if there may some correlation between caffeine and unwanted fat stores. The truth is that coffee isn’t your biggest concern; it is toxins of all kinds. When people decide they want to “lose weight," they sometimes don’t realize that to lose weight you must minimize the amount of toxins you are ingesting. And that weight loss isn’t always depicted by the numbers on the scale- and instead is visible in the decrease of cellulite on your body.

The Diet Solution Toxin Run Down: What Causes Cellulite?

If you have been drinking too many cocktails, eating too much artificial sugar or downing too many bags of Cheetos, you may notice this unhealthy habit manifesting itself on your thighs and tummy. Coffee hasn’t been directly linked to an increase in cellulite, but if you have more than the recommended two cups of coffee a day you may be putting your backside at risk for lumps and bumps. Why does caffeine—along with other toxins—show up as cellulite in the body?

Coffee is a diuretic as well as a stimulant. The caffeine in coffee can raise cortisol levels, which can trigger your body to store fat as well as cause you to crave sweets, since it can raise insulin levels. But if you have just one or two cups of coffee a day, there is not direct link to a good cup of coffee and a bad case of cellulite. So what may be the biggest culprit? Look to your current diet plan instead. Consistent poor food and drink choices can lead to unwanted cellulite.

Fat Flush: What Foods to Avoid on a Healthy Eating Plan for Weight Loss and Cellulite Control

Cellulite is the body’s way of storing toxins. Your system is engineered to shuttle unwanted poison in the shape of chemicals and alcohol into your fat for storage, which becomes cellulite. This creates a dimpled look that everyone wants to get rid of, but the only way to diminish cellulite is to decrease the amount of toxins you ingest. Of course, this comes back full circle to a healthy eating plan.

Eliminating foods that cause cellulite such as processed soy, oils, and sugars, is the first step in your fight against cellulite. It will be a process, but once your system is revamped and your diet is cleaner, you will begin to see a diminished appearance of cellulite. Loading up on leafy greens, and acidic fruits like grapefruit can help flush your system quickly and effectively. Also, don’t underestimate the power of strength straining and cardio. A healthy balance of both in addition to a “naked” eating approach will give you a beautiful backside and an even healthier inside. Eating “naked” simply means limiting your daily intake of foods that have more than 4 ingredients on the package considerably. For instance, fruits and veggies only have one ingredient! Keep in mind, that some cases of cellulite are hereditary and cannot be lost completely- but no matter what body type you have or what gene pool you come from, a clean diet can reduce the visibility of cellulite.

The good news for coffee drinkers is that your morning java habit isn't necessarily to blame for cellulite- but keep your intake down because too much caffeine will just become another factor leading to your cellulite issue.
