3.0 étoiles sur 5 Get a healthy glow in 3 days. 2 juillet 2004
Par L. Gonzalez - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book is pretty much about eating clean, low glycemic carbs and healthy fats. Too many of the wrong foods (bad carbs, salt, sugar) cause inflammation (insulin spike) and cause tissues to become irritated (hold water, puffiness). After following the Three-Day Nutritional Face Lift Menu(without the supplements) my face isn't puffy when I wake, my eyes aren't bloodshot and my skin is J.Lo luminious.
LOTS of supplements are prescribed which to "make it easy for you..." he sells overpriced supplements on his website at the hefty price tag of $195 for 45 days.
This is a good diet to follow if you are do Body-for-LIFE, South Beach or Atkins. I can't argue that its a bad plan. The recipes are very simple, clean and delicious. Can get expensive, but if you live near a Trader Joe's you shouldn't have too much of a problem.
The program can easily be summed up below -- he posts this on his website. Or try the eDiets.com version which is very simple to follow.
The Three-Day Menu
You will be eating close to the same thing each day. Remember to always eat your protein first. Though this diet has some variety, a restricted diet is often easier to handle since you are not confronted by too many choices.
Wake Up
8 to 12 ounces spring water
3 egg whites and 1 whole egg and/or a 4- to 6-ounce piece of broiled salmon
 cup cooked oatmeal not instant)
4 oz cantaloupe + 1/4 cup fresh berries
8 to 12 ounces spring water minimum, more if desired)
4 to 6 ounces grilled salmon or tuna packed in spring water
2 cups romaine lettuce
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil and freshly squeezed lemon juice to taste
4 oz cantaloupe + 1/4 cup fresh berries
8 to 12 ounces spring water minimum, more if desired)
Mid-afternoon snack
2 ounces low-salt, sliced chicken breast
4 raw, unsalted hazelnuts
 green apple
8 to 12 ounces spring water minimum, more if desired)
4 to 6 ounces grilled salmon
2 cups romaine lettuce
1 tablespoon olive oil and freshly squeezed lemon juice to taste
1 cup steamed asparagus, broccoli, or spinach dressed with a little olive oil
4 oz cantaloupe + 1/4 cup fresh berries
8 to 12 ounces spring water minimum, more if desired)
Before-bedtime snack
2 ounces low-fat low-salt turkey or chicken breast
1/2 pear or green apple
3 or 4 almonds or olives
8 to 12 ounces of spring water

5.0 étoiles sur 5 It just works 22 janvier 2003
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
... One late night I saw Perricone on PBS. I was definitely skeptical, but what he said made sense at least; it didn't come across as a mind-numbing infomercial. Inflammation, insulin reaction, antioxidants, importance of protein vis-a-vis carbs, it was a nice and clean model with enough detail and did not come across as a fad of the month. It was based on off-the-shelf products some of which I was already familiar with. And I was getting desperate physically, mentally, and emotionally and was getting burnt out at work.
... I started small and incrementally took what he recommended.
It all started with DHA, more water and no caffeine - Costco sells a product called Senior Moments which has that and "cerebral phospholipids". I felt so poorly that despite the fact that I was once a religious caffeinator, I went off caffeine almost cold turkey within a couple of weeks. The results were astounding and dramatic all within a few days of doing so (the caffeine started to give me an unwanted buzz as I took the supplement, which just got me off caffeine faster). I began to think very clearly again, memory and focus was incredible, and I was multitasking like never before. Plus mood and emotional stability returned ...
Another star is alpha lapoic acid (ALA). Talk about skin rejuvenation. My girlfriend took it and within a few days her severe acne problem cleared up entirely without having to use ... expensive skin lotions, lathers, soaps to manage it. Now, she has ...natural products that work much better at 1/10th the cost. With that and a CoQ10 facial cleanser, my skin has turned out great as well.
I take most of the supplements Perricone lists (which *is* a laborious process that takes 5 minutes in the morning and another 5 in the afternoon, but combination supplements like Calcium-Magnesium-Zinc and Centrum help a lot... I also eat a bulk of foods as proteins and save carbs for last. Now, I am super energetic, mental clarity (thought process, memory, plain ol' solid thinking) has been astounding, and physical fitness (endurance, strength) has been super-incredible. And, the more I work out and sleep, the better I feel.
Plus, the mood swings have gone away, I feel no stress ... I credit most of that to GLA (gamma linoleic acid); the more I have taken, from initially 150mg a day from primrose oil, to now 600mg from borage oil, the more I have been rendered stress free - entirely gone are the back and chest pains, headaches, and emotional up-and-down rollercoaster ride throughout the day.
... his book presents in a succinct and necessary way (though the segue between chapters is a little choppy so I could take a star off for that; it takes at least 2-3 reads to understand the big picture more fully) the why's and how's of good health and consequently great skin. You have to have patience to read through a rather dry topic that most people have been made to be rather skeptical of.
In any event, I'd imagine the drug companies and fast food companies ...- wouldn't be all that happy if everyone discovered the basics again, and that's what the "prescription" is. It goes back to basics, and leverages supplements (most of which are already produced by our own bodies, albeit in limited amounts) and ol' fashion good eating habits to reinforce the machinery in our own bodies to work optimally. I make sure to eat proteins first, drink my tea and water too. If only the prescription could be simplified to a one-sentence tagline so more people would jump aboard like me. ... I strongly suggest for those of you with a lot of stress ...), with stress symptoms physical or otherwise, feel lethargic, overwhelmed and have been going through a brain-drain, to go out and get the book. If you're not the book reading type, see about making a pledge to your local PBS station and get the VHS tape. That's a more expensive option but well-worth it - help PBS and getting the info someway, somehow.
...There's actually a lot of pills, which are relatively cheap if you buy at vitamin shops ... and buy bulk quantity bottles. You also have to work out on a regular basis though workout quantity is not super important. ... Also, be aware the supplements work together and I would suggest an incremental approach. If you get into it, don't get into the fallacy of DHA is for smarts and GLA is for stress. They are, but in reality they overlap. ... There are "side-effects". You get thirsty more often from a higher metabolism rate (and you eat healtier, lose weight, and muscle builds up more quickly at the expense of fat). First few days of taking a particular supplement, like DHA or GLA, you can feel whoozy or sleepy. You might feel a bit of a "sensory overload" at first too, in particular with DHA and DMAE. That all went away for me after a couple of days... get the book or tape to find out.
Best of luck...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fringe Benefits! 12 juillet 2003
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
While the focus of The Perricone Prescription is anti-aging, I derived a fringe benefit from it...weight loss! I tend to believe that this result was produced not only by the physiological regimen, but by a psychological effect. Most "weight loss" books place all their emphasis on the desired goal, i.e., weight loss. We try too hard and are at times discouraged when we don't achieve the desired results. With The Perricone Prescription, the focus is shifted to improving your skin, so the pressure to lose weight is not there. Not only has my skin improved, I've lost weight and have kept it off.
Not only does this book deliver sound nutritional advice, it is effective on many levels. I have had a lifelong battle with weight and nothing has worked. This book was an epiphany for me because it details the science of how our bodies (skin included) react to foods and supplements. I must admit that the advice was easy for me to follow since I love fish, particularly salmon, and since I have a Mediterranean heritage, my diet has always included olives, olive oil, and seafood. Getting rid of the high glycemic foods, though, permitted me to turn the corner. NO ONE ever guesses my correct age...everyone thinks I'm at least 10 years younger than I am.
I highly recommend this book...sound medical advice from a renowned dermatologist. How can you go wrong?

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Best of his books 16 mai 2005
Par Hope - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat authentifié par Amazon
This is the first of Dr. Perricone's books I purchased. I liked it so well, I purchased the rest of them thinking there'd be updated recipes, & maybe some updated information. They are basically all the very same book, sometimes word for word, just different titles. I would recommend this book to anyone having complexion problems, or anyone just wanting to feel better. If you buy one of his books, there's really no need to purchase any of the others, unless you plan to share them with friends & family.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Skeptical but VERY impressed! 26 septembre 2002
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
I saw Dr. Perricone on the Today Show and I tend to be a very skeptical person. However, I bought his book (since I just turned 41) ready to prevent wrinkling and perhaps shed a few pounds. After reading the book front to back, I not only FEEL fantastic, I've lost 8 pounds and my skin also looks great. I wasn't too impressed with the "before and after" photos in his book. But I'm thankful that I didn't let that persuade me out of buying it. It's all about balance and eating smart. I swim every morning for 30 - 40 min. and eat limited amounts of carbs. I now eat certain fruits which I never did before and many more vegetables. I also eat salmon once a day, use olive oil in my cooking, and only drink a half glass of wine a few times a week. I also gave up drinking coffe and replaced it with green tea. As we've all heard, another key is to drink lots of water throughout the day. I basically took every suggestion Dr. Perricone made and because of that decision, I feel and look so much better. I am now finding my size 6 too big and am ready to jump back into my size 4 clothes. I also bought his vitamin supplements, taking them twice a day. His daily suggestions for meals and snacks are easy to follow. His skincare products are also worth looking into although they're NOT cheap! You won't regret buying this book if you're ready to make a positive change in your life! You take away an understanding of how certain types of food react inside your body, which causes you to think twice before putting just any food in your mouth.
