Almost 90 percent of women have cellulite, although it's treated like a major flaw that needs to be fixed. ACE-certified trainer Rachel MacPherson with Radial Strength said that angling cellulite as undesirable is a lucrative marketing trick because when you feel like you shouldn't have something on your body that 90 percent of us have, you're more likely to buy the lotions, pills, or workout plans to get rid of it.
The best thing you can do is embrace the body you have and love yourself, especially the unfiltered version. "If we travel to other countries, we notice women are much more proud of their bodies and don't fuss about cellulite but love the way they look just as they are. Once you get over the cellulite on your body and live your best life, nobody else will notice. It's all in the attitude you have about your body that speaks volumes to others," said NASM- and ACE-certified trainer Holly Roser.
Remember that the goal of eating right and exercising is to be healthy and strong in body, mind, and spirit. Focus on how nourishing yourself with food makes you feel energized. Revel in the fact that working out regularly has made you stronger and more confident. Keep in mind that taking care of yourself allows you to live life to the fullest, to spend time doing the things you love with the people you love most. It's so important to show yourself love and compassion and to embrace all you are, inside and out.
