In honor of Perricone MD’s 15 Year Anniversary, we’re sharing your Perricone stories. Today, Jessica shares her story of weight loss and mother bonding.
Perricone came into my world over 10 years ago when my mother, Blanca, started to use Perricone as her go-to skincare and supplement line. She began using the products and I noticed an immediate change and quickly joined her. We were amazed at the quality and effects of taking them.
We read The Perricone Prescription and started following the anti inflammatory diet. We did the 3 Day Diet, then the 28 Day Diet- I remember I lost about 10 pounds and my skin glowed! Over the years, we’ve kept using the products and maintained a Perricone-friendly eating orientation.
I had been following a Perricone friendly eating method for the most part, but for some reason I just couldn’t lose a bit of weight that crept back onto me when I started a new job where I am sitting for most of the day. I discovered the Metabolic Diet and the Metabolic Formula Supplements. I knew I needed some kind of radical change to shake up my system and having had success with Perricone in the past and confidence in the products, I purchased the supplements. My mother, who is a constant support decided to join me.
The rest became weight-loss and health history. During the 10-day program, I lost 9 pounds after never being able to lose more than 2 in over a year. My skin was glowing so brilliantly that someone asked me if I had just fallen in love— I had but with Perricone! My mother lost 6 pounds in the same period but the change
in our body shape was remarkable. My entire body shifted and muscle
tone developed very rapidly.
We finished the end of the 10 day Metabolic Formula box and decided to keep taking them. We both had such energy and were feeling so healthy—a measurable difference. The supplements allowed me to eat a stricter Perricone diet, as the vitamins kept me from having cravings and more importantly curbed my hunger. Although I felt a bit empty on the first few days, I wasn’t hungry. Learning to distinguish those feelings made a huge difference in my ability to manage my weight. After 3 weeks on the supplements, I noticed I didn’t feel as tired and had more energy.
I wanted to let Dr. Perricone and the Perricone team about the true difference your
collective efforts are making in people’s lives. It is not about a skin creams (though they are amazing), Perricone is about health. The Perricone supplements are key to my short and long term health strategies. Many of my friends and co-workers have noticed a change in me and I have gotten many of them started on the supplements.
Every time I open a supplement pack, I know I am nourishing my body and my soul. I know that my mother and I will enjoy many years of health and laughter together as our individual health improves, especially when the clerk at the grocery store looks at the 6 cartons of liquid egg whites and make a joke if we are drinking the stuff. We laugh together and say in unison—actually we are.
Thank you for taking the time to read this letter and for developing amazing products.
