Anti-Cellulite; Weight Loss

Although not a food, water is included in this list of cellulite-fighting foods because it is one of the cornerstones of any anti-cellulite diet. Water helps flush out toxins that can contribute to the build-up of cellulite. Also, an inadequate supply of water may lead to water retention as the body retains water to compensate, aggravating the appearance of cellulite. A high consumption of water can contribute to fat loss in a couple of ways.

First, water provides no calories but can increase the feeling of fullness.

In fact, it has been suggested that drinking large volumes of ice-cold water could actually burn calories. 

This is because ice water needs to be warmed to body temperature when it enters the body, which requires energy (calories). Consuming 2 liters of ice water a day could result in roughly 70 extra calories burned. Second, staying well hydrated encourages the body to use the kidneys, rather than the liver, for eliminating waste products. One of the liver's main functions is the conversion of energy from stored body fat. If the liver does not have to focus on eliminating waste products, it can concentrate on mobilizing body fat.
