Hey everyone! Haven't been on here in a long time due to life craziness and whatnot, but I've missed it!
Lately, I've been having a super hard time with cellulite. It's not so much when I'm standing, but when I sit down or pinch my leg or anywhere on my body, there is a lot of cellulite and it's confusing me. I never used to have cellulite, and now that I've been on HCRV/HCV for almost 2 years, there is more cellulite than ever!
I started off as a HCRV for 8 months and then gradually started adding in high carb cooked meals. Now, I'm eating them almost every night (which is actually something I'm trying to get away from since me digestion is terrible and has been even before coming to the lifestyle. I know raw would help me a lot since it did when I first started-I just find it so hard and I'm always wanting cooked food even if I'm full from fruits and veggies). Anyway, I'm just not sure why all of this cellulite has suddenly appeared!
I eat 2000-3000 cals/day, drink 2-4L of water, exercise at least 4x/week (weights and cardio-about 60 min for each workout), sleep 7-9 hours/night, and try to keep my fat and sodium intake low (though sometimes it's not as low as I would like-the sodium at least, fat intake is low).
A few possibilities for cellulite showing that I can think of:
1) increased stress attributed to working at whole foods full time (when I was hired on as part time) and working on the farm whenever I'm not working a whole foods.
2) not drinking enough water.
3) not doing enough cardio (I do it almost every workout though so I'm not sure if this is it)
4) my body is detoxing from being on zoloft for 14 years (ages 7-21) and all of the toxins are coming to the surface now as the body tries to get rid of them.
Anyone have any advice or can add some insight to this cellulite dilemma?
Much love! xxx
