Right now you can get a free 30 day trial by just paying shipping and handling. If you need to reduce some wrinkles give this free trial a try.

Perricone Diet Creator Bio

Dr. Nicholas Perricone, MD, is a dermatologist who has written several books, primarily on the subjects of weight loss and maintaining the appearance of youth. Dr. Perricone is an Adjunct Professor of Medicine at Michigan State University’s College of Human Medicine, from which he received his MD. He has appeared in two special programs on PBS. Dr. Perricone sells his own line of skin care products.

Perricone presents himself as a radical in the dermatological community, repeatedly encouraging his audience to challenge the status quo. He compares his work relating diet to skin care with Ignaz Semmelweis’s work on hand washing and the spread of disease in the 1800s. Dr. Perricone is considered the father of the inflammation theory of aging.


Perricone has written several books. These all take a similar “three-tiered” approach to skin problems. The three tiers are diet, supplements, and topicals. The books share some general recommendations, but each contains unique material.

Ageless Face, Ageless Mind
Dr. Nicholas Perricone discusses AGEs (Advanced Glycation End Products). Dr. Perricone explains potential methods to fight against AGEs with a three-part plan of attack that includes a nutritional program, targeted supplements, and new topicals. There is no evidence for the efficacy of his claims[citation needed].

7 Secrets to Beauty, Health and Longevity
Taking a holistic approach that taps into recent scientific developments, Dr. Nicholas Perricone argues that cellular metabolism can be increased to stay healthy, strong, and energetic, while keeping skin soft, smooth, and supple. He claims that this can help reverse osteoporosis, restore bone structure and muscle mass, revitalize brain cells, reduce the chances of heart disease and cancer, elevate mood, manage blood sugar, and slim down and stay trim.

The Perricone Promise
Published in 2004, The Perricone Promise offers a new theory of aging circulating around neuropeptides, and focuses on an extensive diet. He claims that the diet can be helpful in losing weight and smoothing wrinkles, as well as improving one’s mood and decelerating aging. New topical recommendations are also included, the primary one being a neuropeptide-based serum exclusively sold by Perricone’s company that currently costs $570 per bottle (a 3-month supply), far more than any of Perricone’s other products.

The Acne Prescription
Published in 2003, The Acne Prescription is a follow-up to The Perricone Prescription targeted at those who are suffering from acne, especially (though not exclusively) those who have older, drier skin that does not respond well to treatments intended for oily adolescent skin. The book is particularly notable for attacking the widely held opinion in the dermatological community that there is, with few exceptions, no correlation between diet and acne, high intake of iodine is an acknowledged exception. Perricone claims that foods do have anti-inflammatory (and therefore anti-acne) and pro-inflammatory effects; which foods fall into which category is somewhat counterintuitive. For example, apples are in the anti-inflammatory food list, while bananas are considered pro-inflammatory. This book’s paperback version was released under the title “Clear Skin Prescription” in 2004.

The Perricone Prescription
Published in 2002, The Perricone Prescription, recommends a “rejuvenating” program of diet, exercise, and skin care that is intended not only to improve one’s appearance, but also to increase energy and to reduce the risk of several major health problems, including heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. Many of the recommendations, such as a diet high in fish, are repeated from The Wrinkle Cure. The book became a #1 New York Times bestseller.

The Wrinkle Cure
Published in 2001, The Wrinkle Cure, suggests a diet and products that can allegedly slow, or even reverse, the visible aging process. Some of his most notable recommendations are a diet high in salmon (primarily for its omega-3 fatty acids), supplementation of lipoic acid, and topical application of vitamin C ester and DMAE.

The Perricone Weight-Loss Diet
Published in 2000, The Perricone Weight-Loss Diet describes how a version of the face-lift diet introduced in previous books can also be helpful in losing weight without losing body tone. New supplement regimens are introduced along with an updated version of the salmon-rich Perricone diet, as well as several new recipes.

Another method that has been shown to really reduce wrinkles and help you look younger is Hydroxatone. Hydroxatone is a great alternative to Botox treatments and can work a lot faster than the perricone diet to reduce wrinkles and help you look younger. Right now you can get a free 30 day trial by just paying shipping and handling. If you need to reduce some wrinkles give this free trial a try.

Seems like every couple of days someone else is pushing some diet, well today its the skinny switch secret diet. Now I have no idea if this secret diet makes you skinny with the flip of a switch or not, but what i do know is switching back between diets is one of the things that has gotten most people over weight. We have all heard about this diet or the Atkins diet and a host of others. Now these diets will work as long as we remember one thing. In order for anyone to lose weight then there is one truth you must follow. Now this does not matter if its a MUFU diet or a high protein low carb diet, but it counts for every diet out there. If you want to lose weight then your calorie intake must be less than your calorie burn on a daily basis. If this happens then you do not have a choice but to lose weight.


If you are working out and eating sensibly then you will lose weight. The main reason a lot of people look to diets such as the skinny switch secret diet is because they lack the will power to eat sensibly. If  this is the case and you are morbidly obese then you may want to consider one of the weight loss reduction surgeries to help you control your calorie intake. Of course with the right motivation you won’t need surgery as you will  be able to do it your self by eating less than you work off. Whether you opt to have  surgery out not remember losing weight it a life choice and making the right decision can change your life for ever.
