In The Perricone Weight-loss Diet, the father of the Inflammation Theory of Aging reveals the role of internal micro-inflammations, caused mainly by additive-packed foods and a sedentary lifestyle, not only in accelerated aging but also in unwanted weight gain. The good news he shares is: it is possible to slow down the clock, clear the skin, and shed the pounds by following a diet of whole foods and natural supplements, and by progressively adopting an "anti-inflammatory lifestyle", including quality sleep and stress-reducing activities (pet lovers will especially appreciate the passage on the healing power of pets.)
If Dr. Perricone’s division of high- versus low-glycemic index foods, and healthy (Omega-3-rich) versus unhealthy fats, doesn't especially sound like break out news, he has to be credited for his uniquely convincing way of (re-) laying out these dietary principles, and for incorporating them into a global plan to achieve better health and weight loss. "Treat yourself well and the weight will come off," he suggests. And this anti-alarmist, anti-paternalistic, and confident delivery (he doesn't fear complimenting competitor Tammi Flynn on her sensible Three-Apple-a-Day Plan), paired with his stellar success record in the health field (The Perricone Prescription; The Perricone Promise), forces your attention.
Readers will dive effortlessly into the easy-flowing chapters, from "Breaking the Inflammation-Fat Connection" to "The 10 Top Food Groups for Permanent Weight Loss" (headed up with mouth watering wild Alaskan salmon), to Perricone's signature threefold plan, which he promises will show dramatic results in as little as 14 days. Complete with a full 14-day meal plan, detailed nutritional information for each recipe, a seafood safety guide, and a supplement and organic food retailer guide, The Perricone Weight-loss Diet will naturally find its place on the eye-level shelf of your home library.-- Nathalie FarageAmazon.com Exclusive Video

I can't thank Dr. Perricone enough for this book! I have struggled with emotional eating/stress eating/binge eating, depression and anxiety since I was 15. I'm now 35 and have been on his plan for 3 weeks. And I haven't binged or even WANTED to binge the whole time! I honestly can't believe it. 20 years of struggle and this diet finally freed me. Doesn't hurt that I've lost a few pounds and feel absolutely amazing. My therapist thinks I may be able to start weaning off my meds, too. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
I like Dr. Perricone and his products. They're expensive, so I don't have many, but what I do have is quality and consistent.
This book is packed with information and scientific evidence. It's all broken down into comprehensive chapters and gives very detailed informatin on why should be eating the specific foods. What I'm finding trouble with is incorporating it into my hectic lifestyle. I bought the workbook along with the book and that helps!
The book is seperated into three sections: "The inflamation-fat connection," "The Three Steps," and then "The Plan." Dr. Perricone goes into the history of food and disease in American and while that sounds depressing, he actually peppers in positive and inspring ways to look at eating and health. It is inspriring and fascinating to read about inflammation and the pro-inflammatory effects on our bodies.
Not only covering weight losss and health, Dr. Perricone explores wrinkles and how what we eat contributes to what our skin looks like. He gives choices and lists what fruits, grains, fish, etc. are good for our skin and while we can't turn back the clock - we can improve the elasticity and skin texture. I'm still learning about the supplements, but he gives detailed explanation of the benefits both inside and outside our bodies.
If you're looking for an informational book with lots of scientific studies to back it up, I highly recommend this book.
I initially borrowed Perricone's first book "The Perricone Prescription" from the library and decided to buy both that book and this one. Both are very good references and present usable guidelines. I really like the whole approach with healthy eating complemented by supplements contribute to weight loss and improved skin. The explanations are very detailed but understandable, which helped me to stick to the program which has actually evolved into a lifestyle for me. I do believe the advice provided will contribute to reducing my risk of heart disease and cancer while giving me immediate payback of better skin and weight loss-- ten pounds with ten more to go. My skin is truly more attractive with fewer, or less deep, wrinkles (I'm a 53 year old woman)and I do feel more energetic. This book goes deeper into the weight-loss discussion with slightly different recommendations for supplements. I feel committed to this program, which is more than I can say for other diets I've tried, because this is a guideline for lifestyle, rather than simply a "diet." I recommend the books and the whole plan for healthier living.
