WHY DO WOMEN GET CELLULITE MORE THEN MEN?
The structure of collagen, the main protein of connective tissue, in women has the appearance of a picket fence, whereas in men it looks more like a cross-linked fence. So you can see the cross-linked structure is much stronger and will hold fat in better.
Another reason women get cellulite has to do with the two kinds of androgenic receptors. When stimulated, alpha receptors will cause fat cells to produce fat as well as triggering constriction of blood vessels and release of sugar into the bloodstream when beta receptors are stimulated, they break down fat[as well as increasing heart rate and relaxing blood vessels. In women, for every one beta receptor in the thigh, there are nine alpha receptors.
Estrogen also makes fat whereas testosterone breaks down fat. So a women’s body is basically—and I hate to say it—genetically designed to be a place for cellulite to develop. Men have one layer of fat throughout their entire body and a one-to-one alpha- and beta-receptor ratio.
