Perricone Diet Plan

About the Program

The Perricone Diet Plan is a 28 day program that reduces inflammation at the cellular stage which in turn reduces disease and helps you look and feel your best.

Dr Nicholas Perricone discovered this program that not only helps you shed those unwanted pounds, but also works to help increase the number of years that you live, as well as helps you to look younger quickly and effectively.

This program works by integrating a wide array of supplements and even lotions that make the plan effective. To achieve optimal results you need to stay with the program for the full twenty eight days.

The basis of The Perricone Diet Plan works on the notion that when your cells show that inflammation is present disease often is as well. The program that Dr Nicholas Perricone developed works to drastically reduce and eliminate the inflammation that occurs within the cells of the body.

Inflammation has been known to be the result of blood sugar levels in the body being increased. When this occurs, several things occur in the body on a chemical level. This program works to repair the cells and, as a result, you’ll lose weight and look and feel better too!

Foods You Can Eat

Hydration is important and you should consume 8 to 10 glasses of water daily. You’ll eat three meals and two snacks on this plan. The meals should be a good balance of carbs, proteins, and fats. Dr. Perricone suggests removing pork, veal, lamb and beef from your diet will help you avoid these harmful proteins, and additionally, lose some unwanted pounds. He also recommends an anti-inflammatory supplement.

A typical day would be:

Breakfast: 4 to 6 oz. grilled salmon (Alaskan wild preferred), 1/2 cup cooked oatmeal (non-instant), 2″ wedge cantaloupe or 1/3 cup of fresh berries and 6 to 10 oz of spring water.

Lunch: 4 to 6 oz. grilled salmon (you can add mayo and fresh squeezed lemon), 2 cups green salad made with romaine lettuce or other dark leafy greens with virgin olive oil and lemon juice dressing, 2″ wedge cantaloupe or 1/3 cup of fresh berries and 6 to 10 oz of spring water.
