dr. perricone's 3-day menu

Laura's Comment:
I have tried this menu over 3 days, and yes it does work! Wild Salmon is better than farmed.  Bon Appetit!

3 DAY MENU 
You will be eating close to the same thing each day.
Remember to always eat your protein first.
Though this diet has some variety, a restricted diet is often easier to handle without too many choices.

OTHER INSTRUCTION
This menu calls for six 8- to 12-ounce servings of water.
Beyond that, you should drink at least two additional glasses throughout the day.
Keep fresh water on your desk at work, a bottle of water with you in your car, or close at hand at home to sip as you are doing chores or cooking, to stay well hydrated.
