Perricone Prescription

ImageInflammation is the enemy along with being the root of heart disease, diabetes, cancer, arthritis, aging, obesity and a many other conditions and diseases.

Renowned dermatologist Nicholas Perricone says decreasing inflammation at the cellular levels can change a person's life for the better... and it can be done within 28 days with his science-driven program. Within in just three days on the Perricone Prescription, one will witness undeniable changes which can be seen with the naked eye. This process will fight wrinkles, fat and disease in one swoop.

According to Dr. Perricone, when a person examines disease-riddled cells under a microscope, inflammation is present at all times. He believes that inflammation is the foundation of disease. Based on this data, he created an anti-inflammatory routine to fight the effects -- because it is what a person puts in his or her mouth that contributes to the condition.

Sugar and high- glycemic carbohydrates quickly change to sugar. Elevated blood sugar in turn causes chemical reactions in the body that cause inflammation. Protein helps to repair the cells that have been damaged. However, Dr. Perricone maintains that it is important to be cautious in the proteins you select as some create proinflammatory reactions. He cites beef, lamb, veal and pork as unfavorable proteins. As you get rid of these inflammatory-causing foods, you will notice weight loss as a by-product of your efforts.

Different foods reccomended by Perricone to avoid are pastas, pizza, breads, bananas, and other foods with high sugar or foods that break down into sugar, as they contribute to inflammation. Conversely, he recommends that his followers stock up on proteins that are healthy and fats such as berries, avocados, dark leafy greens, vegetables and salmon. In addition to enhancing weight loss, these foods also contribute to skin that looks healthier and younger.

ImageThe Perricone Prescription asks its users to eat three meals daily, one mid-afternoon and one after-dinner snack. Each meal and snack must have recommended sources of carbs, protein, and fat in the form of omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids. Meals should be spaced evenly during the day and eight to ten glasses of water should be consumed.

A typical menu for the day looks like this:

Mushroom omelet with Canadian bacon and melon

Salmon, Caesar salad and apple

Grilled halibut, Greek Salad, asparagus and melon.

2 slices of turkey, 4 macadamia nuts and a small peach

Anti-inflammatory supplementation is also an integral part of Perricone's plan for fighting inflammation. Perricone endorses exercise regularly to achieve a more healthy lifestyle.
