you cannot remove or loose fat cells unless you get liposuction or surgery they only shrink or grow in size.
Patricia Westbrook (1 year ago)
It`s been weeks since I started making use of this cellulite tip “GetPlanOnly Com” (Google it). I wasn`t hoping so much from “GetPlanOnly Com”, yet I was frantic and chose to give it a shot. I can`t imagine how fast the result it taking place. This worked a lot better than I’d ever hoped or expected. I do not regret my decision of trying this product.

Merrida100 (1 year ago)
This goes hand in hand with the lie that is fed to people that they can "lose fat."  You do not and cannot "lose fat."  All you can do is shrink the size of those fat cells, but the number of cells remains (or grows), but never is reduced.  Only lipo technically "loses fat."  Then, when we lose weight (ie: shrink fat cells), we're more prone to sagging tissues, skin, loss of muscle tone, which can actually de-puff us and make us look older and more haggard.  Face it ladies, we can't win.  Just be healthy!
Markus Schober (1 year ago)
Of course, it's hard to say how meaningful a statistic like "90% of women have cellulite" is when you're living in a society where 64% of women are considered overweight or obese.
Markus Schober (1 year ago)
+Agathe Power https://www.niddk.nih.gov/health-information/health-statistics/Pages/overweight-obesity-statistics.aspx Overweight is BMI≥25, Obese is BMI≥30
JustJazzy (1 year ago)
Markus Schober So your weight doesn't stop you getting cellulite. 90 is more than 64. The other 10% might just be underweight people and/or models/actresses/singers.
Agathe Power (1 year ago)
Markus Schober Do you have a source for this? I am genuinly interested what it refers to...

Artyom Arty (1 year ago)
fat may not be the direct cause, but exercise and less skin does reduce cellulite and/or makes the situation better. Listening to advice on cellulite or anything that makes a girl ugly from a feminist is like asking for marriage advice from a divorce attorney whose single. In other words, all I need to know is the name of the topic and I'd know what your opinion on that topic would be

I'm 15 and I don't give a damn about cellulite. Then again, I don't really care about my appearance (except for clothes).

I read a thing about a woman who drank a gallon of water a day and it said after a few weeks it reduced her cellulite.
rorolilred (3 years ago)
Ah, that makes sense.
peepslostsheep (3 years ago)
It didn't reduce it, she just had water retention in her skin. Just like she mentioned with the spa treatment, the skin swelled up, masking it.

So, what we're saying is that the only women who don't have cellulite are drag queens. 
Jas s (4 years ago)
I think we should also stop worrying about stretchmarks because they are also natural and come from not only pregnancy but puberty, growth, weight lifting, i mean i actually got them from losing weight haha but they are there forever just like cellulite
M Greenwood (4 years ago)
I have a few stretch marks on my legs from weight gain (from "people thinking I had anorexia when I was just an active teen to a healthy weight 30 something woman). I take the marks as a reminder I live in a country where I have enough to eat. Not everyone is so lucky. Stretch marks are a sign of all I have to be thankful for.

*Thats so wrong **+darl919**  . Cellulite is not a medical term. It was coined in* _European spas  & beauty salons to refer to the unsightly dimples_ _and bumps on the skin of many women. Good thing i have my_ *program with me that works great! I tried it few months back and it* _did what it promised! cellulite was gone permanently ,^^_

Emily Booth (4 years ago)
This ok if you only have it on your thighs. How about being slim but having it on your arms, arse, thighs and lower legs INCLUDING your knees? This is why I hate summer! Cheers mother.
Ursul Daniel (4 years ago)
you made a point there, but you have taken the easy way out saying that scientifically its impossible. remember that "science" today is still in its early stages and will always evolve. look at those hard training girls that go jogging, cycling or dancing .... actually look even closer, cause you aint gonna look good staying all day in front of ur screen or eating at MCdonalds. you can argue with a mans behaviour on looks but not with an erection ;) nature wont change for you 
Ursul Daniel (4 years ago)
why not just get rid of fat in general, rather than taking curves from fat( which is disgusting ) take them from sport, which is ATTRACTIVE. make it more simple, people are sexualy attracted when they see a healthy body, you should start finding ways for you to move and exercise more. so you can have smooth skin and what not too :)
Jas s (4 years ago)
why dont you just stop talking because no one cares what you find attractive kay

2:00 im not fat or what not, but i have to agree with you there.. smooooth ;)

My boyfriend has never once said anything about my cellulite or stretch marks and he literally tells me how beautiful I am everyday. I honestly don't think guys even really care as long as you have boobs and a butt and are healthy and have a decent personality.

Can we please spread this around Pinterest? I am so tired of seeing "rub coffee grounds on your skin to reduce cellulite!!!" because that is not a thing that works
Frappa Canu (4 years ago)
i have a fantastic natural recipe against cellulite. mix some spoons of cocoa (better if non sweetened organic raw cacao powder) with water to form a soft paste and spread it on your legs. you can also wrap yourself in plastic wrap if you want, it speeds up the process and protects your furniture from stains. leave it in pose for 20/30 minutes. the treatment needs to be done at least 3 times a week for 3 months. while it won't CURE your cellulite, it will improve very much the appearance of your skin and, more importantly, you will smell and feel fabulous!!! :D and it costs much less than any common (and probably less effective) cellulite treatment.

beethovenalexander (4 years ago)
I fucking hate this new wave of  "embrace Your body" bullshit that has made its way into the mainstream media. Whatever happened some attractive, yet rare features, being esteemed and more sought after than their uglier counterparts. This new idea that "all women are beautiful" is a load of horse shit that was shat out by a bunch of ugly fat girls who would rather redefine beauty than eat right and exercise.

How do you know it goes away? Did you look at their skin under a microscope? We can improve the skin appearance, but we cannot make cellulite go away. A smooth skin =/= no cellulite.

If only every female could see this, I swear all insecurity issues just boil down to the media making women (and sometimes men too of course) focus on things that aren't really important - and not even the whole truth of it, THE SCIENCE BEHIND IT. Which is why you are just the best and most amazing, spreading lurrrrv and positive messages, and empowering us with scientific knowledge rather than media bullshit!

+Stuff Mom Never Told You +Freelee the Banana Girl has cured cellulite! So it is possible!
TheKamislaw (4 years ago)
I would hardly call Freelee an expert on women's bodies. 
Frances Madgwick (4 years ago)
Yeah but who wants to go on a raw vegan diet, eat way more fruit every day than most people would eat in a week and inject themselves with B12 shots? Oh yeah and drink shit loads of water that makes them get up even in the middle of the night to pee. I think you should eat plenty of fruit and vegetables, drink about 2 litres of water daily and exercise regularly but I think Freelee goes overboard and most people wouldn't be able to uphold her standards.

Love the video, as usual.  :-D  One small correction though, you can't reduce the number of fat cells you have, they just shrink as the amount of fat stored in them reduces.  Keep the body positive videos coming!
Blow-Up Bunny (4 years ago)
Watching these vids always makes me feel better, but I think I'll have to show this one to my mother. She's almost 70 and she can't stop pointing out what's "wrong" with her body. The two things she hates most is her stomach (which she had either two or three surgeries which cut along the same scar in her abs so no amount of crunches will ever give her a six-pack) and the dimples on the back of her thighs that are few and far between. Sometimes I catch her sighing to herself in the mirror and it just breaks my heart because I see a beautiful woman who strangers think is 20 years younger than her actual age. All she sees is what happened to that beanpole of an 18-year-old. ~sigh~

First time I heard about cellulite was a post going around on tumblr with a screen cap of a news artical looking at some female celebrity on the beach going "OH MY GOD SHE'S HORRIBLE! SHE HAS CELLULITE! SHE'S SO UGLY NOW!!!" and I had to look up what it was. I couldn't tell if the artical was a joke or not cause I couldn't see anything. Still dont' understand what it looks like, so I don't know if I have it or not cause... those are just my legs... I don't got spairs stuffed in my clauset...
