3-Day Facelift Diet (it’s very fishy)

Dr Perricone Salmon

That’s what Dr Perricone is promising with this fish fest. Don’t be misled – you will eat a LOT of salmon following this diet, it’s jam-packed with Omega oils and backed up by the skin doctor’s philosophy on supplying vitamin and oil rich foods to the skin.

Ocado, the online supermarket now makes the diet as easy as pie, you can buy everything you need online (and it’s quite a bit) all in one easy package. Did I say you eat a lot of fish? It’s morning, noon and night. Oh and yes, there’s the eggs. Actually in fairness when you look at the meal plan (below), it’s really healthy, amazingly nutritious and delivers everything you need.

It promises a visible difference in your skin in just three days. Too good to be true?  That’s what it promises. Dr Perricone recommends the 3-Day Face Lift Diet as the perfect way to jumpstart his 28-Day Plan – this will allow you to see a drop in weight and visible results in your skin right away. and in all honesty, if you are building muscle in the gym, I dare say that this would be a mighty fine addition to your regime too.

Ocado are switched onto to the buying habits of customers and have introduced a Perricone food basket on their website, which means with just a few clicks all the ingredients can be added to your basket and delivered together in one handy slot, meaning you have everything you need to start your new regime.

Salmon, the foundation of the 3-Day Face Lift Diet, contains DMAE, astaxanthin and essential fatty acids that help to dramatically reduce puffiness, increase radiance and add firmness to the skin. To see the true benefits you should eat salmon twice a day as described in the 3-day meal plan.

There is some flexibility – if you can’t stomach so much salmon, you can substitute it for poultry or tofu – but remember it’s the essential fatty acids and antioxidants in salmon that will give the skin a remarkable suppleness, radiance and youthful glow.

      I haven’t yet, but do eat a couple of portions of salmon a week. But that pales in comparison to this diet.
      I do plan to at some point.
