3 Day Face Lift
Diet Made Easy

The Dr. Perricone "3 Day Face Lift Diet" is simple, effective, and great for your complexion and general health.

Of course, your results won't be similar to a cosmetic procedure, but you will see evidence that's working.

The results people notice by day 3 are usually are probably due to the extra hydration from eating more fruits, veggies, and increased fluid intake.

Many of us are so dehydrate - and this has a profound effect on our appearance.

How Does It Work?

The beauty of this face lift diet is it's simplicity!

Increased hydration for a slight lift and firm and extra antioxidant rich foods to reduce inflammation - all contribute to long term benefits for your face and body.

So your basic simple diet rules - in no particular order:

  • Avoid processed or simple carbohydrates which convert to simple sugars in the body. Replace them with vegetables, beans, nuts, seeds and some fruit. Replace "white flour" products for whole grain products.

  • Stick with low carb fruits and dark fruits like berries, plums, or apples and grapefruit. Certain fruits can be high in sugar (like bananas and oranges).

  • Add lots of good quality protein like fish (especially salmon), lean chicken and some red meat. Try to include lean protein in your diet at least 3 meals a day.

  • Drink lots of water. By the time you feel thirsty, you're body is already dehydrated. Try to find a large glass and make an attempt to re-fill it at least 3-4 times a day. You'd be surprised how much nicer your face will look and you might find that you'll eat less too.
  • Eat 2-3 tablespoons of tomato paste. Tomatoes are high in lycopene (which is a powerful antioxidant). And, while fresh tomatoes and sauces are great - paste has a higher concentration of lycopene.

Sample 3 Day Diet

    Breakfast

    Whole Grain Cereal w/fruit and flaxseeds.

  • 1 serving of your choice of a whole grain breakfast cereal and one tablespoon of flaxseeds sprinkled on top.
  • 1-1/2 cup of light or skimmed milk.
  • 1 serving of low index fruit - like cantaloupe, plums or berries (optional).

  • What are Flaxseeds? They are tiny little seeds with hardly any flavor so you can add them to almost any type of food, but they are super for overall health.

    Dry dull complexion? Flaxseeds are rich on omega-3 fatty acids and alpha linolenic acid (ALA). They're also high in vitamins (especially B vitamins), minerals,and fiber. These tiny seeds pack a powerful punch in terms of health!

    You can modify this 3 day face lift recipe by switching the cereal for low fat yogurt or a couple of hard boiled eggs.

    Lunch

    Turkey Sandwich

  • 2 slices of whole wheat, whole grain, or stone ground bread.
  • 1-2 tablespoon of reduce fat mayonnaise or better yet mustard – any kind. Also instead of mayo try a little olive oil and salt….. very tasty!
  • Make sure to choose low sodium turkey.
  • And add any kind veggie and as much as possible. Try mixed salad leaves, greens, tomatoes, roasted peppers, or how about some olives? The point is to fill up on fresh raw veggies and not bread and chips!
  • Snack

  • Wasa crispbread, which is very low in the GI index, served with a couple tablespoons of hummus and an apple or plum. You can also have a low fat cheese sticks or all natural peanut butter (without sugar) with the crackers.
  • Dinner

    Chicken Kabobs

  • Cut raw chicken breast into medium sized chunks
  • Marinade them for 30 minutes in a mixture of vinegar, lemon juice, small amount of olive oil..And any other seasoning you’d like to add. I like lots of raw garlic. The lemons, olive oil and garlic are loaded with great antioxidants.
  • Slice a medium onion and green pepper. Now begin alternating onion and green pepper slices along with grape tomatoes and chicken chunks on a skewer.
  • Then grill until chicken is cooked. Serve with toasted whole wheat or stone ground pita bread and hummus or a chickpea salad.

    Or baked sweet potato and whole grain wild rice. Again, use this opportunity to add as much vegetables as you can. This will not only benefit your complexion, but will also fill you and might help keep the weight down too.

Simple Diet Tips To Remember

If this seems to complicated just remember these simple tips:

Try replacing your morning "white flour" bagel or toast for whole grain breads.

Make sure you read the label, if the first ingredient includes the word: "whole" wheat and it has at least 3 grams of fiber per slice, then it real whole grain bread.

Unfortunately, many breads products on the market today claim to be whole wheat or multigrain breads, but are just enriched flour with a dash of grains added for color.....Shame on them!

Other examples include - substituting a sweet potato for a white potato, whole grain pasta for regular pasta. Or select a salad instead of fries, seeds/nuts/cheese and apples for a snack, instead of chips and pretzels.
