Foods to Reduce Cellulite

I've done some researches on the best food around to reduce cellulite.
Here's what I got:

Eat More Protein. Do consume foods which contain protein twice daily for healthier growth and repairment of cells. Foods such as fish, tofu, beans and dairy products are all great protein providers. Besides, all of these foods contain essential fats that help to reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Eat More Bran & Oat Cereals. Bran and oat cereals that contains hight amount of anti-oxidants are good to treat your cellulite condition.

More Fruits & Vegetables. Make sure to include more fruits and vegetables in your diet. Fruits and vegetables such as cucumber, celery, watermelon, kiwi, papaya, blueberries and etc are great Vitamin C providers and help to fight fluid retention in your body.

Exercise to Reduce Cellulite

Below are some exercises that I think are quite effective for reducing cellulite.

Anti Cellulite Exercise 1: Do The Power Walking Exercise
Power walking is like brisk walking but at a higher capacity - almost like you're jogging. It is an effective fat burning, cellulite exercise but much safer than jogging as it is less likely to hurt your joint. It is recommended to do it at least 2-3 times a week to achieve optimal result. Start slowly if you haven't been exercising for quite some time, say like 10 minutes for the first few sessions, then gradually and slowly increase your workout duration.

Anti Cellulite Exercise 2: The Bent Knee Lifts Exercise
First, kneel on all fours on a flat surface with your knees under hips and your hands under shoulders. Then, lift your right foot towards the ceiling and hold it as high as possible for at least 5 seconds, making sure that your foot flexed, knee at 90 degree angle with your back flat throughout the exercise. Do this step for 8-10 repetitions and repeat with your left foot.

Anti Cellulite Exercise 3: The Hip Extension Exercise
Stand straight up and hold on to the back of a chair while extending your right leg back. Then, lift your leg off the floor for about 8 inches high and bring it down. Repeat this step for about 10 times for each of your right and left leg.
