Can You Drink Grapefruit Juice to Get Rid of Cellulite?

By Nina K.

Although your diet may play a role in cellulite formation, no food will magically get rid of the dimples. Cellulite is ordinary fat, which appears lumpy when it presses against your connective tissues. Cellulite is common among adult women, and some men have it, as well. While this type of fat may be bothersome, it is not a cause for medical concern.

The Grapefruit Story

The idea that grapefruit can somehow burn body fat is a myth, according to West Virginia University Students Center of Health, so don't count on grapefruit juice to reduce your cellulite. A more effective strategy to help minimize cellulite is to lose body fat, which requires that you reduce your caloric intake and increase your level of physical activity. Because grapefruit juice contains 94 calories per cup -- most of which come from sugar -- you may be better off drinking water instead.
