I've been doing a high fat traditional diet, for the most part. I've run and lost weight in the past, but that was low fat. Then my cellulite looked almost just as bad as it did with the extra weight, sometimes worse. but now, doing the high healthy sat. fats (coconut oil,grassfed beef and raw dairy), my muscle tone is so much better, and i can go longer and stronger, and my cellulite is diminishing quite a bit. I also don't feel drained from working out. Anyone else experience this?

I was a bit suprised bc when i wasn't doing any exercise (granted I am breastfeeding) but i couldn't lose any weight, but i didn't gain any either. At all. And I eat a lot. the higher the fat, usually the more i like it. unless its trans or soy.

I am at a smaller size (10) than I ever was except in my 20s (size 8 then) on a TF, high-fat diet.<br><br>
My worst weight gain came on a low-fat, virtually no meat or dairy diet (got up to a size 14) even though I was walking every day or doing some kind of exercise regularly.<br><br>
Lots of people on the T-tapp.com nutrition forum say that drinking kefir regularly can help eliminate cellulite. I don't really have a problem with that, but I did start drinking kefir again since I've recently gotten access to fresh cow's milk locally. It tastes much better than when I made it with Organic Pastures! I guess because it's not as old.

I eat the same way and have seen exactly the same good results you speak of. I got my info from Weston A Price's website and <a href="http://www.mercola.com" target="_blank">www.mercola.com</a>. I absolutely cringe when I see light and low/no fat products in the grocery store. It is sooooo essential that breastfeeding children be supplied with the proper fats and it cannot get to them without their mother/father (whoever is bfing them) consuming themselves. My son has absolutely been thriving. I try to get avocado, raw nuts, raw dairy and cod liver/fish oil into my daily intake.

I am probably at the lowest weight in my adult life (I am 26) on the tradtional foods high fat diet. I can't wait to see what happens as I get more into my excerise routine! I am working back into jogging along with heavier weights/dumbells.

Well, I don't know about the other ladies here but I follow a traditional food diet which happens to be very high fat, high protien and include organic veggies and fruit, raw nuts and dairy. You can find out more about the basics on the Traditional Foods thread on this site or you can go to the Weston A Price Foundation website. I highly recommend it.
