Could you explain exactly what cellulite is and how best to eliminate or diminish its appearance? I eat right and work out, but my outer thighs and backside have visible cellulite. I strive for a toned physique, and can lose weight, but the cellulite seems to hang on for dear life. We posed your question to Dr. John Emmett, author of Turning Back the Hands of Time, who says cellulite is a widespread problem for women and men. Poor nutrition and a sedentary lifestyle are contributing factors.

You work hard to get yourself as toned as one of those bodies on the label of a package of health food. Except behind you are these dimples that won't go away, no matter what you do. You have cellulite. Where did you get it? Blame yourself: You picked the wrong parents. Cellulite (pronounced sell-u-lite) runs in families. You were born female. The percentage of men who have visible cellulite is in the single digits. Cellulite, dimpling mainly on the back of the thighs, hips and behind, is fat. Those areas are a stubborn place for fat - relatively spongy, fibrous and less interactive with the blood supply - which means they are good for insulation and absorption of impact, but fat there doesn't go away as fast with exercise and diet.

LOS ANGELES -- The new goal in thigh perfection is not just thinness in 30 days, but smooth, taut and toned skin, too.The latest wave of attacks hopes to eradicate the dreaded culprit cellulite.Cellulite, that spongy, uneven "cottage cheeselike" appearance of the skin on the thighs, arms and rear end, continues to puzzle and frustrate its victims, nearly all of whom are women. Now, as cosmetic companies expand their cellulite "treatment" lines, sufferers have new hope that something besides starvation, exercise or surgery will restore their skin to its youthful firmness.

The red pills come in a pink box and look big enough to banish cellulite from a horse. The formulation -- including extracts of seaweed, sweet clover, grape seed and gingko biloba -- promises hope to any woman who's ever stared despairingly at her back view in a mirror, in all its wobbly, dimpled glory.The pill is Cellasene, and its manufacturer claims it can melt away the cellulite that so many women dread. It does so, they say, by improving blood flow to women's thighs and buttocks, allowing trapped blobs of fat to be more easily metabolized by our bodies.

Given all the products that have come and gone over the years claiming to rid the body of cellulite, it's OK to be skeptical about the latest miracle treatment.But: There is a new, noninvasive treatment for that patchwork quilt of skin and fat that is the bane of thighs worldwide. And unlike some of its more dubious cousins, the new therapy - called Endermologie - earned approval from the Food and Drug Administration in May as "an effective treatment for temporarily reducing the appearance of cellulite."

So you have yet to get away for that spa vacation you've been craving. No worries. With a handful of products, you can create a spa in your own home. Sure, there won't be any 25-mile pre-dawn hikes. And we won't be trying to pass off two blueberries and a no-fat tortilla as dinner. But it will give you an opportunity to sit down, relax and give your bod the TLC it needs. Did someone say dimples? Your vows to work out 12 times a week and swear off potato chips forever didn't work. And as a result, your thighs are looking a tad too dimply for your taste.

I DON'T KNOW about you, but sometimes I walk down the street looking at other women and think: "Fatter than me. Thinner than me. Fatter than me." And I occasionally also think: "Pass the french fries." That's when I spot a woman so fat or so thin I know one more, or one less, french fry is not going to deliver me to either extreme. Nike, Dove and, for heaven's sake, Chicken of the Sea, are taking all the fun out of this game by using female models who are supposed to be, well, as fat as me. Nike is promoting big butts and big thighs in its current ad campaign for women's gear.

We could be seeing a subliminal influence of "Star Trek" uniforms, which at any given moment are being seen on reruns somewhere on this Earth.Asymmetric triangular blocks were the only adornment on the fluid matte jersey dresses Calvin Klein sent down the runway.

Rosner, a Brookline, Mass., biochemist who is director of research and education for the Foundation for Chiropractic Education and Research. There is also little data suggesting that people with osteoporosis are injured by chiropractic treatment, in which the spine is manipulated to restore proper alignment of vertebrae.
