The Perricone Prescription:
A Physician's 28-Day Program for Total Body and Face Rejuvenation - Getting Started

This section will tell you exactly what you need to have on hand for the Perricone Prescription 28-Day Program -- from food and supplements to skin care products and workout gear. Consult the Resource Section at the rear of this journal for recommended sources of some of the following selections.

Phase One Preperation: Food

Take a long, hard look at what you've got in your refrigerator and on your pantry shelves. Review the following lists and stock up on the nutritious, delicious foods that are recommended in my 28-day program.

*Fish is the best all-around source of protein. The fish I recommend most highly is salmon, and I encourage you to eat salmon at least five times a week. However, the other cold-water fish I've listed may be used instead of salmon to add some variety to your diet.
