The Skinny on Cellulite from Dr. Oz

Oprah’s favorite doctor, quickly becoming America’s favorite doctor, appeared on her show yesterday to talk the audience through some of their most pressing health questions. Dr. Oz is the light-hearted, totally approachable, expert on health who speaks with authority on nearly any subject presented.

A question was posed yesterday asking what exactly is cellulite, if all women get it and how do we get rid of it. In a word- marshmallows.


Dr. Oz explained that when fat cells are doing their job, they absorb all the fat they can. As they continue to grow and push together, cellulite forms and you end up with pockets that look like marshmallows. He says that you can blame the family tree for your cellulite, as the way your body stores fat is entirely genetic.

He also told everyone to save their money and stop buying into the billion-dollar cellulite treatment industry. Dr. Oz says that all those creams, balms, and other treatments aren’t doing anything as they are not capable of getting inside the fat cell and eliminating cellulite.
