10 cellulite foods recommended by a doctor

Any solution to combat orange peel skin must be accompanied by a balanced diet, exercise and water intake. Only then can you avoid the accumulation of fat in the body. The advice is from Dr. Teresa Laginha, a specialist in General and Family Medicine.

1. Pineapple

Few know, but pineapple is rich in bromelain, an enzyme that acts as an anti-inflammatory and helps fight skin irregularities.

2. Brown rice

It is an alternative to traditional rice that contains fiber, vitamin B and minerals (magnesium and chromium), favoring the digestion of sugar and the functioning of the intestine.

3. Flaxseed

In addition to being a great addition to salads, it has an anti-inflammatory action, which reduces inflammation and helps regulate the intestine. It is also rich in Omega 3, an antioxidant that increases the amount of good fats.

4. Nuts

They are an excellent beach snack and a source of magnesium, which strengthens the immune system and improves circulation.

5. Banana


The banana contains potassium, which stimulates the lymphatic drainage process and is rich in fibers, which help to regulate the intestine, reducing the absorption of fats.

6. Apple

When the apple is ingested it slows down the absorption of glucose and makes it difficult to absorb fats. In addition, it is also an excellent morning snack that helps to neutralize toxins in the body.

7. Red fruits

Berries are rich in vitamin C and A and antioxidants that, in addition to fighting free radicals, strengthen blood vessels and decrease insulin production.

8. Salmon, sardines and tuna

These three types of fish are low in fat and rich in Omega 3, a famous antioxidant, and protein.

9. Carrot

In addition to helping to achieve a lasting tan, carrots contain beta-carotene, a substance that protects cells and consequently reduces inflammation, helping to reduce orange peel skin.

10. Green Tea

It is famous for its antioxidant and diuretic action, being a great ally in controlling orange peel skin.
