Dr Perricone’s three-day diet promises a ‘facelift in your fridge’

Dr Nicholas Perricone firmly believes there’s a facelift in your fridge that you can achieve in just three days.

Dr Perricone’s three-day diet promises a ‘facelift in your fridge’

The dermatologist, nutritionist and best-selling author has developed what he calls a three-day nutritional face-lift – a meal plan that promises dramatic changes to how you look and feel.

Dr Perricone’s three-day diet aims to eliminate puffiness, increase contours, firm the jaw line, among other anti-ageing effects.

For the best results, the diet recommends eating salmon twice a day for the the DMAE, astaxanthin and the essential fatty acids in the salmon to take effect and increase radiance, glow and firmness to the skin.

Dr Perricone also strongly encourages selecting wild Alaskan salmon over farm-raised fish. Poultry or tofu can be substituted if you feel you need a change from the salmon, but the best outcomes will be achieved with salmon.

The three-day nutritional face-lift is included in Dr Perricone’s book The Perricone Prescription, which contains a 28-day meal plan with a wide variety of foods and easy to prepare recipes.

Dr Perricone suggests following the three-day diet as a way to jumpstart the full 28-day plan.

 

Here’s Dr Perricone’s “facelift in your fridge” eating plan:

Breakfast

  3 egg omelet and/or 4-6 oz (110-170g) grilled salmon. I do not recommend smoked salmon or lox on the three-day diet because of the salt intake.

  ½ cup cooked oatmeal (not instant). Cooked oatmeal is a great source of fibre, low glycemic carbohydrates

  2” (5cm) wedge of cantaloupe or 1/3 cup fresh berries. Cantaloupe is very hydrating to the skin and contains important antioxidants – blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries are high in antioxidants

  No juice, no coffee or toast. If you normally drink large amounts of coffee, drink black or green tea to prevent caffeine withdrawal.

  8 – 12 oz (230-350ml) spring water

Lunch

  4-6 oz (110-170g) grilled salmon. Option: you can also use canned salmon and mix a little mayo and fresh squeezed lemon

  2 cups green salad made with romaine lettuce or other dark leafy greens. Dressing: extra virgin olive oil and fresh squeezed lemon to taste

  1 kiwi fruit or cantaloupe and berries as above

  8 – 12 oz (230-350ml) spring water

Snack

  1 apple

  2 oz (60g) slice of turkey breast or 6 oz (170g) plain yogurt

  Small handful of hazelnuts, walnuts or almonds. Great source of fatty acids and folic acid

Dinner

  4-6 oz (110-170g) grilled salmon

  green salad as described above

  ½ cup steamed veggies. Especially asparagus, broccoli, spinach, etc. NO root vegetables, such as potatoes, carrots, beets, parsnips, etc

  Cantaloupe and berries

  8 – 12 oz (230-350ml) spring water

Before Bedtime Snack

  1 pear or apple

  2 oz (60g) sliced chicken or turkey breast or 6 oz (170g) plain yogurt

  Small handful of hazelnuts, walnuts or almonds. Great source of fatty acids and folic acid
