Extreme weight fluctuations cause cellulite?

Hi there,

I was wondering if weight fluctuations can be a cause of cellulite to some extent?

My whole life my weight went up & down, due to eating disorder in highschool (69lbs), weight gain(130ish), loss of weight last summer due to stressful breakup(110ish lbs), so weight gain.. I'm healthy now.. I excersise regularly, I eat pretty good.. I am 5'2ish, 135 lbs.. muscular legs, but I have BAAD cellulite now.. never really have before.. I am 21 years old.

Thanks for your input guys!

Re: Extreme weight fluctuations cause cellulite?

To a certain extent, cellulite is normal in anyone over the age of about 15. The magazines tell you it's a bad thing, but it's just something the human body does, like grow fingernails.

Yes, rapid weight loss or gain can make it worse. About the only thing that makes it better is building muscle mass underneath, and it sounds like you're pretty strong already.

I personally find that my legs are prettiest with my quads and hamstrings very toned, but my adductors not so toned. Not totally sure why, I just like it that way.

Yea, cellulite is just such a pest.. there are so many factors it can be from.. my bc pills, my diet, genetics..

I do a lot of cardio from my work out program, INSANITY, muscle training, bike riding & running.. I guess the cellulite just likes me haha
