Get ready! Summer is just around the corner and if you have annoying cellulite issues, remember the following:

* Avoid beverages and foods that contain caffeine (soft drinks, chocolate, coffee, tea etc) or try to keep them to a minimum.

* Avoid extremely refined processed foods things that are canned, pre-packaged or just any fast foods.

* Avoid large amounts of alcohol since it dehydrates the body.

* Avoid all fried foods – this is an important one especially in the summer when we tend to eat a lot of fried fish.

* Avoid refined white flour and its by-products (bread, cake, biscuits). Try to stick to eating all whole grain products and when you make cakes and biscuits experiment by adding various whole grain flours like corn, buckwheat, or oat flour.

* Choose to eat plenty of fruits and vegetables that contain a lot of water. Fruits and vegetables that are brightly coloured are great choices. Some great examples here are cherries, mangos, blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, oranges, strawberries, spinach, tomatoes, peppers, carrots, grapefruit, fennel, cranberries, avocado, watermelon, melons, rocket etc.

* Make sure you drink plenty and plenty of water.

* Choose to eat foods that contain essential fatty acids (omega3 and omega6 fats). Foods that contain these fats include fatty fish like salmon, sea bream and trout, sardines etc, also nuts and seeds like linseeds and sesame seeds.
