The promise of a visible difference in your looks in just three days may seem too good to be true, but with Dr. Perricone’s 3-Day Diet, you can experience dramatic changes in how you both look and feel. It’s even a perfect way to jumpstart the 28-Day Anti-Inflammatory Diet, helping you see a drop in weight and visible results in your skin.

The plan is simple. Like, seriously simple–just follow the menu below for all three days.

The 3-Day Diet Menu
Eating salmon twice a day allows for the benefits of the DMAE, astaxanthin and essential fatty acids in the salmon to take effect, but if you want to mix things up a bit and give your taste buds a break, feel free to substitute poultry or tofu (but keep in mind that the essential fatty acids and antioxidants in salmon are what helps make skin appear supple, radiant and glowing).

3-egg omelet and/or 4-6 ounce grilled salmon
½ cup cooked oatmeal (not instant)
2 inch wedge of cantaloupe or ⅓ cup fresh berries
No juice, coffee or toast (replace coffee with black or green tea to prevent caffeine withdrawal)
8-12 ounces spring water

4-6 ounces grilled salmon (or canned salmon)
2 cups green salad made with romaine lettuce or other dark, leafy greens (dress with extra virgin olive oil and fresh squeezed lemon juice)
1 kiwi fruit or cantaloupe and berries as above
8-12 ounces spring water

4-6 ounces grilled salmon
Green salad as described above
