About Sirtfood Diet

Two celeb nutritionists from the UK have come with this new diet. They have been promoting it as a revolutionary diet which can aid obese people by turning on their "skinny gene". This particular diet is based on sirtuins (SIRTs), a group of seven proteins that regulates a variety of functions, including metabolism, and inflammation among others. With the help of some boosters, the level of these proteins will increase. The boosters are known as Sirtfoods.

Best Sirtfoods are:

Red wine

Strawberries and other citrus fruits 

Onions

Soy

Extra virgin olive oil

Dark chocolate (85% cocoa)

Matcha green tea

Buckwheat

Turmeric

Walnuts

Medjool dates

Red chicory

Blueberries

Coffee

Inclusion of these Sirtfoods and calorie deficit leads to higher production of sirtuins. The diet has two phases which should be followed for three weeks. Speaking of the Phase 1, it involves calorie deficit and lots of green juices. The same will help you to kick start the weight loss. One has to restrict their calorie intake to 1000-1500 calories. Talking about Phase 2, which is a maintenance period, there is no specific calorie limit, however, you have to include Sirtfoods and green juice. Post three weeks, one can continue adding Sirtfoods in all meals.  

Speaking of the Sirtfood recipes, there are several recipe books on this diet available. The Sirtfood juice is quite integral in the diet. The green juice is made kale, rocket, parsley, celery, green apple and green matcha tea among others. Other recipes which can be included are Sirt muesli, chicken breast with kale and red onions and prawn stir-fry with buckwheat noodles among others.

Is Sirtfood diet effective? 

There are not many types of research and proof claiming their effectiveness. However, there are no double thoughts that Sirtfoods are superfoods and can be added in the diet but the pattern is quite unhealthy. Also, we cannot ignore that preliminary scientific evidence is hardly available.  Speaking of the side effects, dieters can experience fatigue, lightheadedness and irritability due to the calorie deficit.
