The Perricone anti-wrinkle diet

( http://kozmoplanet.com/the-perricone-anti-wrinkle-diet.html )US skin care expert and dermatologist Dr. Nicholas Perricone wrote his book The Perricone Prescription after concluding that certain foods cause inflammation and water retention. This can lead to premature aging, obesity, and other health issues.

The basis of the diet is a 28 day program. The program aims to reduce saturated fats, refined sugars, and other high glycemic carbohydrates.

3 Day Nutritional Facelift
As a trial run, Perricone provides a meal plan for 3 days. Many report feeling results after only 3 short days - anything from “feeling more energized”, “losing that puffiness around the face”, “eyes no longer bloodshot”.

The following menu should be followed for 3 days. Protein should be eaten first. Note that the salmon should be wild, or at the least organic.
