Q&A: "How can I get rid of cellulite on my legs and butt?"

In a word? Exercise. "Cellulite is basically the buildup of fat tissue stored unevenly, which produces its dimply appearance," says exercise physiologist Michele S. Olson, PhD. To speed fat loss and minimize cellulite, follow a healthy diet and do at least four 45- to 60-minute aerobic workouts each week. In addition, says Olson, do strength moves like the ones here three times a week. "Resistance activities are key to maintaining a toned lower body -- you're sculpting lean muscle mass while burning excess fat."
