Dr Perricone's 3 Day Face Lift Diet

Dr Nicholas Perricone has a 3 Day Face Lift Diet that is fabulous!  Try it in advance of an event for which you need to look your absolute best.  I'm willing to testify to it's efficacy.  I tried it before a high school reunion (hey, why not?)  My skin was glowing and my body became more lean in just 3 days! I wonder why I don't do this all the time -- and then I remember that I'm not perfect, but I CAN manage 3 days!

Here's the menu from his book:
Dr Perricone's Three-Day Nutritional Face-lift™ aids in the elimination of puffiness, increases contours, firms jaw line, etc. You must eat salmon twice a day for the ideal effects of the DMAE, astaxanthin and the essential fatty acids in the salmon to take effect.This will increase radiance, glow and firmness to the skin. Wild Alaskan Salmon is far superior to farm-raised salmon. For convenient online access to the best wild Alaskan salmon, organic berries and more we recommend Vital Choice Seafood* (www.VitalChoice.com)


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

• 1/2 cup cooked oatmeal (not instant). Cooked oatmeal is a great source of fiber, low glycemic carbohydrates.    

• 2" wedge of cantaloupe (very hydrating to the skin) or 1/3 cup fresh berries - blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries are high in antioxidants.

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

• 8 -12 oz spring water


• 4-6 oz. 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. spring water


• 1 apple

• 2 oz. slice of turkey breast or 6 oz. plain yogurt

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


• 4-6 oz. 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

• berries

• 8 – 12 oz. spring water

Before Bedtime Snack

• 1 pear or apple

• 2 oz. slice chicken or turkey breast or 6 oz. plain yogurt

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

* LNH Note:  We also suggest Trader Joe's Wild Caught Alaskan (Sockeye) Salmon.
