people believe that sags, bags, and wrinkles -- on the face and body -- are
inevitable. many people choose to temporarily circumvent these signs of aging with
surgery, chemical peels, Botox injections, or laser treatments. The good news, according
to research scientist and practicing dermatologist Nicholas Perricone, M.D., is that by
following a simple program of diet, exercise, and skin care you can prevent and even

treatments, and stress, is the single most powerful cause of the signs of aging. Dr.

inside out, while at the same time decreasing the likelihood of heart disease, cancer,

Healthy, vibrant skin depends more on what you put in your cheeks than what you rub
on them, says dermatologist Nicholas Perricone. In The Perricone Prescription,
fresh salmon tops the list of must-eat foods for total body rejuvenation. In fact, it is
the star of Perricone's "Three-Day Nutritional Face-Lift," a convincing trial
run for those who are a bit hedgy about committing to his 28-day diet and his supplement,
skin care, and exercise regimen.
Perricone's clear explanation about the adverse effects of inflammatory foods
persuasively argues for shunning destructive, low-fat favorites (including watermelon,
carrots, and bagels) and "culinary horrors" like pizza, pasta, and beef. Better
to eat anti-inflammatory choices (those with a glycemic index of 50 or less) like salmon,
halibut, and trout. While the book's mega list of recommended supplements is a bit hard to
swallow (literally and figuratively), the supportive information Perricone supplies about
each is certainly helpful.
Another detailed grocery list--this time for topical
anti-inflammatories--addresses skin care, and his wrinkle-free fitness plan promotes
flexibility, muscle strength, and endurance. Finally, a handful of savory recipes offers
respite to those who only know how to broil. So, despite all the salmon (and the angry
kids whose parents have purged their high-glycemic kitchens), Perricone's prescription
doesn't sound fishy at all. --Liane Emory Thomas
