    Like everything, too much of a good thing is a bad thing. Now, if you have heard people talk about not eating after 7 pm bc it will make you gain weight, it's true. Your body is set to a natural internal clock. It knows what time a day it is whether your brain does or not. That's how you know when you are hungry, sleepy, etc. Eating after 7pm will make you gain weight because your body is settling in for the night and the metabolism slows, causing fat deposits to be stored. Those fat deposits are cellulite. Now on the other hand, sitting around doing nothing will also slow your metabolism. Everything in your body is linked. The faster your heart beats, the faster your metabolism will be TEMPORARILY, meaning that you burn calories and fat. So yes, to answer your question, sitting too long and sleeping after a meal will indeed cause cellulite.

      Thank you for the informative answer. Adding to it, I guess easiest way is to avoid cellulite is to daily do a 30 minutes brisk walk and drink lots of water. Walking for 10 minutes in between every 1 hour might also help.

    IF you are completely sedentary and do not get up at all to move around and exercise then you will likely get cellulite as a result of increased fat on your body from the lack of exercise. Cellulite is caused by fat cells in the body separating, so the less fat you have, the less amount of cellulite you will have!
