New cellulite solutions exist that are based on the same principles that bring good health. It’s just all about how you sequence them. This episode is all about assessing what’s going on and getting motivated by solving the root cause of fatigue and creating a plan that integrates it all.
Today’s question comes from Katie who writes,“ I’ve always exercised and tried to eat as healthy as possible. I’ve never had a weight problem but over the last 5 years I’ve been losing my motivation. I’ve put on 10 lbs. and I’m noticing loose skin and cellulite getting worse every year.
I’m plain tired a lot. I take yoga and Pilates class once a week and try to get my walks in. I know I’ve got to get more cardio and weights. I feel like I’m having a hard time getting a plan into action.
The loose skin in triceps area and cellulite are really bugging me – it’s even on my arms. I need some motivation and energy.”
I’ve got new cellulite solutions for Katie, but first we assess signs and symptoms that leave clues about what’s under the weight gain and the lack of motivation. Katie’s flipping scorecard looks like this:
- Low motivation
- Good sleep
- Cardio now is walking
- Weights sporadic
- No vitamins/meds
My quick recommendations for Katie include:
- Starting slow – keep the fatigue to a minimum and “restore before more”
- Bump up the intensity of those walks when fatigue is gone
- Get regular with weight training – keeping it short
- Consider support for reaching micronutrient sufficiency
When lifting weights, always do a full body routine. You want to reach fatigue. Follow this sequence:
- Cardio or cardio warm up
- Strength in specific areas where cellulite appears
You’re doing them anyway but sequence matters. Learn more in Muscles in Minutes.

While you’re changing your exercise you want to make a few changes in the kitchen.
Minute Made Meals
A few simple tricks can buff your diet so you’ve got the right fuel going in -to beat fatigue- and to help with new cellulite solutions you’re adding to your exercise.
- Add bone broth to your day – 1-2 times a day (my favorite is here)
- Make sure you’ve got brightly colored vegetables – and limited fruits (berries are low in sugar and high in fiber)
- Kiwi – high in vitamin C
- Sweet potatoes- high in Vitamin A
Fatigue can squelch motivation. Resolving the cause of fatigue is the first step. Then knowing that the steps you take are linked to the outcome you want is key. It’s hard to be motivated if you don’t have confidence in the plan.
The Key Flip of the Day:
Commit to a small step that makes you feel successful as you go toward bigger goals. When you see and feel progress, motivation increases.
