It may seem too good to be true, but the Dr Perricone 3 day diet is a very real option to see visible results in reducing the appearance of aging, while maintaining your weight. As a part of the Perricone 3-Tiered Philosophy, an anti-inflammatory diet, targeted nutritional Supplements, and clinical skin care are all you need to achieve a healthier lifestyle!
“One of the greatest joys of my research has been discovering the role of key nutrients in the foods we eat and how they impact our beauty, health and longevity. What I often refer to as ‘superfoods’ are those remarkable anti-inflammatory, healing and rejuvenating properties, which have all but been forgotten in today’s world of fast and processed ‘food’.”- Dr. Nicholas Perricone, M.S, FACN
The 3 Day diet can be a lead in to Dr Perricone’s 28 day diet, or used on it’s own for a quick pick me up. The meal plan is simple enough to follow, with very little prep time needed for the dishes. It’s recommended you drink plenty of fresh spring water, and avoid alcohol and caffeine. The foundation of the plan is Dr Perricone’s favorite superfood, salmon! The meal plan suggests including salmon in at least 2 of your 3 meals a day. When buying your salmon, look for Wild Alaskan Salmon, Dr. Perricone recommends VitalChoice.com.
Salmon is a great primary protein for a healthy diet.
Unlike other proteins salmon does not contain cancer causing substances, and is also easier for the body to digest and absorb the nutrients.
Salmon also contains several important ingredients to fight the visible signs of aging.
One of Dr Perricone’s most utilized nutrients, DMAE is an anti-inflammatory substance and powerful antioxidant against free radicals. It also helps fight sagging muscles by promoting the production of acetylcholine.
• Omega-3 Fatty Acids
These healthy fats go a long way in improving healthy and reducing the signs of aging. In addition to adding in the absorption of important vitamins and nutrients, omega 3 helps reduce cholesterol levels, increase brain function, and contribute to healthy, glowing skin and hair.
