Cellulite Fighting Foods #7: Aged Cheese

August 07, 2014 1 min read

Aged cheese isn't just absolutely delicious on fresh baguette, but it's also a great food to help you beat cellulite! Aged cheeses contain a lot of conjugated linoleic acids (CLAs), amino acids that are naturally found in all dairy products. These amino acids can help to control your estrogen levels, thereby reducing your risk of cellulite forming. (Remember that excess estrogen leads to the breakdown of collagen.) Eat more of these aged cheeses to help counteract the effects of cellulite.

If you are overweight, consume aged cheeses in moderation. Bonus benefits:Aged cheese is also rich in Vitamin K, which improves bone health. The enzymes in raw milk are still present in aged cheese, making them healthier than pasteurized cheese.  Sharp cheeses like Blue, mozzarella, and cheddar are all linked to improved dental health, and cheese is loaded with important nutrients like zinc, phosphorus, Vitamin A, Vitamin B12, calcium, riboflavin, and, of course, protein.
