Ever wonder how mega stars like Kate Hudson and Eva Mendes always look camera ready with their flawless skin? Both stars are fans of Dr. Nicholas Perricone, the best selling author and CEO of Perricone MD.
Dr. Perricone’s newest book, Forever Young, explores inflammation, aging, and disease through the study of Nutrigenomics. The book also highlights Dr. Perricone’s Three Day Diet which was recently featured on AccessHollywood.com on September 23, 2011.
“The fountain of youth may be no further away than your next meal,” said Dr. Perricone, whose holistic and Three-Tiered Philosophy aims to treat your skin from the inside out.
Dr. Perricone promotes an anti-inflammatory diet that includes:
- High quality protein
- Low-glycemic carbohydrates
- Healthy fats like salmon
Dr. Perricone’s Three-Day Nutritional Face-lift helps to reduce and eliminate the ten signs of aging. Dr. Perricone shared an example of this Three Day wonder diet with Access Hollywood.
