Diet > Perricone Diet
By Reporter, Amanda Lennon

Is there a face-lift in your fridge or is it full of the stuff that wrinkles are made of?

Both Kim Cattrall and Julia Roberts place the credit for their glowing skin and slender figures at the feet of US skincare guru Dr Nicholas Perricone.  His ‘anti-wrinkle’ diet is touted as the next big thing, and for once I see merit in this particular fad.

Nutritional therapy is great - but then I would say that wouldn’t I? It can help alleviate all manner of symptoms and unsuitable dietary choices have been shown to play a major part in many illnesses.  I routinely treat everything from arthritis and IBS to migraine and sinusitis, but did you know that nutritional therapy can also be fun?  Not only can it lift your spirits but it can also rid you of your wrinkles!

The diet is based upon evidence that certain foods can cause inflammation and water retention. Obviously by cutting out the culprits (mainly refined sugar and saturated fats) the plan hopes to rid you of your wrinkles, enhance your metabolism and aid weight loss.  The premise that some foods cause inflammation is not new.  For years Nutritionists have been advising arthritis sufferers to avoid acid-forming foods and migraine sufferers to cut out the caffeine and tyramine.  However, Perricone believes that a diet of pizza, chips and cola will not only lead to obesity but also make you old before your time.

If you’re in any doubt then why not give this quick hit Three Day Nutritional Face Life a try.

Wake Up
  • 8–12oz still mineral water
Breakfast
  • 4-6oz piece of grilled or poached salmon
  • ½ cup organic oats made with water not milk
  • 3” slice of cantaloupe melon and ¼ cup fresh berries
  • 8-12oz still mineral water
Lunch
  • 6-8oz grilled or poached salmon or tinned sardines in olive oil
  • 2 cups romaine lettuce with 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil & lemon juice
  • 3” slice of cantaloupe melon and ¼ cup fresh berries
  • 8-12oz still mineral water
Mid-afternoon snack
  • 2oz sliced chicken breast (home cooked not prepacked)
  • 4 raw hazelnuts
  • ½ green apple
  • 8-12oz mineral water
Dinner
  • 6-8oz grilled or poached salmon
  • 2 cups romaine lettuce with 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil & lemon juice
  • 3” slice of cantaloupe melon and ¼ cup fresh berries
  • 8-12oz still mineral water
Before Bed
  • 2oz sliced chicken breast (home cooked not prepacked)
  • 4 raw hazelnuts
  • ½ green apple
  • 8-12oz mineral water
Whilst this may sound a rather boring menu for three days the results are quite remarkable – give it a try.  The only things to remember are that the water stated is the minimum requirement and you should have more if you can manage it and that the salmon should be wild where possible but certainly organic.  The latter part shouldn’t be as much of a problem out there surely?!  The reason is of course to avoid all the antibiotics and other chemicals farmed salmon now contain.

And finally, when you’ve seen the results of the three day hit and want to continue you’ll be pleased to know that the 28 day programme is a lot more varied!  For full details check out The Perricone Prescription by Dr Nicholas Perricone which can be found at your local book store.
