I was flipping through a bookalog I have and came across Perricone’s latest book. So I hopped on over to Amazon and this is what I found out:
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0060188782/104-0126708-1719928 Someone on Healthboards had posted this same thing and MAYBE had he mentioned that it was by Perricone, others would have taken the “advice” a bit more seriously: http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/Forum1/HTML/019655.html
“Next, Dr. Nicholas Perricone told us how certain foods can erase acne for good! Dr. Perricone has a three step approach to treating adult acne which includes diet, vitamins and topical solutions. Below you will find a guideline for treating your skin, from the inside out. For more information please visit nvperriconemd.com or refer to Dr. Perricone’s book The Acne Prescription which is available in bookstores now.
STEP 1 — Acne Curing Foods
Fruits & Vegetables
Dark leafy lettuce

STEP 2 — Nutritional Supplements that Help Treat Acne
STEP 3 — Topical Anti-inflammatories
Clean & Clear
Now, if “bagels” and Pita are problematic wouldn’t you think that this would apply to all breads alike??? Obviously, that’s a generalized list of “inflammatory” foods (starchy ones), yet some of us have learned that there are many others that could be eliminated (could be why others don’t need any supplements and topicals). Anyway, some people criticized the diet since it’s just like his other books, well, I bet it is, but this one is for those of us that are more concerned with acne than wrinkles (for the time being). If you want it for less than $27.50 you can check out these sites: http://www.epinions.com/book_mu-5280797 and perhaps you might be interested in another book known as “The Inflammation Cure” http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0071413200/qid=1065676236/sr=1-1/ref=sr_1_1/002-4823391-1534465?v=glance&s=books Then again, this is all what the Evil Lectin Diet and an Elimination diet will show you for free.
Of course, you can use his products to make it easier on yourself http://www.clinicalcreations.com . Yet, all of his products and supplements are EXPENSIVE! We ourselves have bought better formulated products and more bioavailable supplements than what he offers and for LESS! Other than that, no complaints about this man. I really don’t care who decides to broadcast it to the world (he does so on several tv shows with amazing before & after patients), just as long as more people Wakeup and get clear, I’ll be happy =)
