New cellulite solutions exist that are based on the same principles that bring good health, it’s all about how you sequence them. This episode is all about assessing what’s going on for our listener, helping her to get motivated by solving the root cause of her 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 tired a lot. I take yoga and Pilates class once a week and try to get my walks in. I know I need to do more cardio and weights, but I feel like I’m having a hard time getting a plan into action.
The loose skin and cellulite on my triceps area are really bugging me. I need some motivation and energy.”
What’s going on?
I have new cellulite solutions for Katie, but first we need to assess her signs and symptoms that leave clues about what’s behind the weight gain and the lack of motivation. Katie’s flipping scorecard looks like this:
- Low motivation
- Good sleep
- Cardio currently is walking
- Weights sporadic
- No vitamins/meds
My quick recommendations for Katie include:
- Start slowly – 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 – keep it short
- Consider support for reaching micronutrient sufficiency
When lifting weights, always do a full body routine, and lift to reach fatigue. Follow this sequence for cellulite reduction:
- 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.

Minute Made Meals
While you’re changing your exercise, you also want to make a few changes in the kitchen. A few simple tricks can buff your diet so you’ve got the right fuel going in to beat fatigue and to help with cellulite solutions.
- Add bone broth– 1-2 times a day (my favorite is here)
- Make sure you have 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, so resolving the cause of the fatigue is the first step. Knowing 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.
