Every woman wants to make the coveted period the most memorable time of her lifetime which is why most women try to find all the healthy pregnancy tips they can find, but as the time advances and with the baby bump you start discovering dimples of cellulite around those curves, you become anxious.
So, why do you get cellulite during pregnancy?
As you progress slowly into your gestation period, no matter how prepared you are, no matter how many books you read or programs you watched or joined, your pre planning about a healthy diet and an pregnancy exercising regime seems to go out of hand.
The morning sickness challenges you every day.
The uncontrolled mood swings with food fads just shove you more towards eating your favorites.
With each passing day, the mornings bring more and more fatigue and by the time you notice that puckering skin with fatty bumps, you already cross the initial period!
It is important that you should understand how did you get those fat dimples and how can you avoid them to an extent?
How it Come?
Cellulite is the building up of fat beneath our skin by an excessive fat consumption which the body is unable to metabolize or process.
The main causes behind cellulite buildup are a combination of hormonal, genetic and natural factors just like arrival of stretch marks can occur.
Natural factors that cause cellulite are your eating habits and lifestyle habits. Hormonal imbalance that takes place during this period is also to blame for the buildup.
A poor genetic makeup and stress in addition to other reasons can be responsible for your problem.
A conventional thinking about “eating for me and my baby” and “my baby want sweet delights” is a misconception.
Eating healthy and right food is the key to be a fit mommy. More fat that you consume, the more difficult it would be for you to lose it.
The high on sugar and carbs bakery goods, deep fried and processed foods, with loads of hydrogenated oil are the culprits so cut them down and add vitamins and nutrients by eating fruits, vegetables, whole grains and nuts.
Another reason to blame for your cellulite is your Estrogen level that manages the distribution of fat in your body; it is also to blame for those food cravings.
Excessive production of this hormone makes the fat stored in your thighs, abdomen and buttocks. This also causes an obstruction of the lymphatic system.
The water retention during pregnancy also puts an additional pressure on the lymphatic system. This can be balanced to an extent by cutting down on your salt intake. Exercising regularly helps the situation.
Your lifestyle can also be a reason behind those fat dimples.
How to get rid of it?
You probably want to know the best way to get rid of cellulite.
Light physical exercises like jogging, walking, Pilates and cycling throughout the period can help you in losing that extra fat.
If your weight gain is normal during this period, there are chances that you will suffer from a less deposition of cellulite.
