The Sirtfood Diet has been generating buzz through its rumored use to drive Adele’s weight loss. Best part - the diet encourages red wine and chocolate. The Sirtfood Diet was created by Glen Matten and Aidan Goggins. They studied Nutrition Medicine at the University of Surrey where they learned about the sirtuin proteins - sirt for short. Activated sirt proteins burn fat and preserve muscle by triggering a metabolic switch. Animals with activated sirt proteins live longer and healthier. How can you activate sirt proteins? Extreme calorie restriction or extreme exercise. Suggesting to eat a 40% calorie restricted diet isn’t going to make you as popular as suggesting to eat chocolate and red wine. Certain nutrients can activate sirt proteins, mimicking the effects of calorie restriction. I learned about these nutrients in grad school too - one nutrient in particular called resveratrol, which is found in red wine. A family of nutrients called polyphenols contain a whole bunch of sirt-activating nutrients. Who’s not going to bite at this offer? Mimic calorie restriction by eating polyphenols? That’s Aidan and Glen’s million dollar idea - create a diet based on foods with sirt-activating nutrients to burn fat and boost health. And thus the Sirtfood diet was born. What are the sirtfoods? The diet staples are arugula, buckwheat, capers, celery, chilies, cocoa, coffee, endive, extra virgin olive oil, garlic, green tea, kale, Medjool dates, onion, parsley, red wine, soy, strawberries, turmeric and walnuts. Nutrients in these foods known to be sirt activating include quercetin, kaempferol, curcumin, apigenin and epigallocatechin gallate. Sirtfood green juice is made up of kale, arugula, parsley, celery, apple, ginger, lemon and matcha green tea powder. Aidan and Glen’s 2016 Sirtfood Diet book cover boldly states “clinically proven to lose 7 pounds in 7 days”[6]. That “clinical proof” comes from a pilot study that they ran with 40 members of a super posh gym in London called KX Life. There were a whole bunch of issues in this study that triggered my science spidey sense. Besides this pilot study, the only other evidence of the Sirtfood Diet is from anecdotes. Dr. Lara Science Law #1 “Anecdote is not evidence!”

BTW, I noticed this has 161,000 views as I watch it. You've got lots of other videos with less than 10,000 views, but those videos are just as good as this one. The TRshow gods are confused because your content is great. Really.

I've heard of sirtuins (although I've heard it in the context of autophagy and longevity, I really don't know what it is.) I have never heard of the Sirtfood Diet before though. By the way, I watched this while having lunch, with 3 grlasses of red wine, and a 1/4 bar of 85% cacao dark chocolate for dessert, and I had a resveratrol supplement this morning. I definitely get my 30 varieties of veggies every week. I already lost the weight so no need to diet. I didn't pay anyone for funky diet food, either. Basically sounds like they promote consumption of a variety of vegetables, including an emphasis on polyphenols. Sounds logical, but not magical or proprietary.

I am thankful for this video. I am glad you mentioned that your not a fan of juicing because its expensive, wasteful and I wanted to add that it takes forever to clean a juicer. I had a juicer and got rid of it because of the daily 20 minute cleaning that had to happen immediately after juicing. It only works if your juicing for a whole family because keep juice in the fridge makes it all brown and even more disgusting.
Nourishable 18 gün önce
YES I totally agree! When I have juiced I always felt compelled to keep all the pulp to do something with, and ultimately those thoughts were just aspirational and I'd end up throwing out moldy pulp from my fridge.

The real take home message isn't the diet, its the fact that science is taught at a higher level in Europe than it is in the USA. The author claims, 'oh yeah I learned them too' but I can guarantee that it was at a lower level without much emphasis than it is abroad.

you can just compare the result yourself using a blood test and some patience. 6w this diet, 6w healthy reference diet. repeat twice or 3 times to control for life episodes and you know. if you care about your health enough to know what sirt you are probably doing this kind of thing anyway. (and blood testing is free in many countries)

Losing 7lbs In 7 days is not safe or sustainable if their claim is true. That's water weight and lean muscle mass saying goodbye. And if you are training cardio and resistance you sure ain't gonna lose 7lbs in a week either. Remember people body transformation doesn't happen over night. Slow, steady progress is safe, sustainable and you won't look like a talking corpse by the end of it either.

Lmao, everyone will lose weight if you restrict to 1200 calories. The first week is an average of 1200 calories. People normally lose 10 pounds, but on this diet it’s 7, because anything below 1200 slows your metabolism. So the first 3 days you are slowing down your metabolism.🤦🏻‍♀️

Actually the Sirt Food Diet is amazing. I’m finishing phase one and I am eating so much food full of fiber, vitamins, and most importantly flavorful! The recipes are ridiculously delicious. This is an extremely healthy diet that I can follow for life. If folks read the book, you would learn you are not restricted by any means. Give it a go you will not be disappointed.

@MAELY HNEINE Great. You'll gain back all the weight you're losing now (and then some) once you start eating a normal number of calories again, plus there's a good chance you'll have sustained damage to several of your internal organs including your brain by then, depending on how long you fast - fun!

With respect to juice vs fiber. It is only 3 days. You can get your fiber for "overall health" after these 3 days. 3 days are not going to make weather in terms of fiber, but they will kick start whatever they need to kick start. And then you load up on that fiber
