Posted: April 21, 2008
Following are answers to questions posed during the live webinar, The Truth About Cellulite, featuring Peter T. Pugliese, MD.
1. Are their any foods we can use/suggest to our clients that will help speed up results?
A. Yes. First cut down on or eliminate sugars--if it’s sweet, don’t eat it. Fruits, veggies, lean meats and some seafoods are OK. Watch baked goods, including bread.
2. Are there foods, vitamins or supplements that can help or strengthen the body’s tissues?
A. For foods, see answer to question 1. Supplements: oligomeric proanthocyanidins, (Pycnogenol), 100-200 mgs a day; Asiatic acid; vitamin C, 500 mg daily; l-carnitine, 500 mg daily; reseveratrol, 200-400 mg a day in divided doses. Soy milk may help.
