How to Get Rid of Cellulite (on a Budget)

We all have it (yes, even the skinniest models, too). You know, the little dimples by our butt and upper thighs? How could we forget–cellulite has to be one of the most difficult body issues to deal with or get rid of. But don’t fret, cellulite-challenged friends, we have some tips to help you get rid of the cellulite.

How to Get Rid of Cellulite

Rolling Out The Fat

Wooden Pins

There’s a legend that you can roll out your cellulite with an ordinary kitchen roller. But, there might be something to it, since many gyms now have foam rollers for similar results. Essentially, rolling the roller over your legs consistently can help to break up the fat that sits there on the top of your legs.

Embrace Your Inner Ballerina


You’ve probably tried every exercise routine in the book, but have you ever considered ballet? We’re not saying you have to be in Swan Lake, but there are many ballet exercises that specifically target legs and can burn fat.

Apply Coffee Grounds To Your Legs

Coffee Grounds

Using coffee grounds mixed with items like water, olive oil, and even lotion, can help get rid of cellulite. How? Simply apply the coffee ground mixture to your legs twice a week, wrap it in plastic wrap, and leave it there for a few minutes for the best results.

Jump, Jump, Jump!


Recent studies show that jumping can actually burn more calories than running. So, why waste all that time on the treadmill? There are many exercises and ways to jump that can maximize the effect, too.

Drink 3 Cups of Green Tea Per Day

Green Tea

It seems too good to be true, but studies show that drinking three cups of green tea per day can help you burn 80 calories a day (translating to 6 lbs. per year)! No exercise, no rushing, no pressure. All you have to do is sip your tea.

Yvonne, I'd love to add your story to our list of cellulite successes! It makes sense that the diet you described could cure cellulite. Please contact me if you're up for sharing your experience with other cellulite investigators (there's a contact form on the site). Thanks!

And TBF, thanks for the link. Rolling is an excellent way to treat cellulite. Watch out for that green tea, though. A lot of women (myself included) are hypersensitive to fluoride and tea leaves absorb fluoride more than any other edible plant. If you're skin starts to break out, it could be the tea!

The only thing that ever worked for me was drinking a ton of water, reducing the amount of sugar I ate and eating tons of veggies. This was on a n eating plan that did not include wheat, corn, dairy, citrus and coffee/chocolate and sugar. In six months with no additional exercise I lost all the excess fat and cellulite from my thighs.

Her'es to good eathing and excellent health!!!

Not sure about the coffee grounds working to reduce cellulite, one of the best ways (for me at least) is getting plenty of exercise on a regular basis... though contemplating a purchase of a rolling pin right now! ;)
