All eyes were on Adele when she posted a photo of her incredible weight loss back in October. Her dedication to a new fitness routine has contributed to her goal to stay healthy, but Adele’s trainer attributes most of her weight loss to a strict diet. Does it involve green juice? Yes. Does it cut your coffee intake? Nope!
It’s called the Sirtfood diet–a diet designed to activate sirtuins, which are proteins that have been shown to regulate metabolism, inflammation, and lifespan. The two-phase diet lasts a total of three weeks, then it’s all a matter of packing as many “sirtfoods” as you can into your meals.
The first phase lasts three days and restricts calorie intake to 1,000 by consuming three green juices and one sirtfood-rich meal a day. The calorie intake is upped to 1,500 for the next four days. Those days involve consuming two green juices and two meals a day. In phase two, you eat three meals made of sirtfoods and one green juice for two weeks.
OK, but what are sirtfoods? Kale, blueberries, walnuts, onions, and strawberries are a few. Other top contenders include red wine, dark chocolate (85 percent cocoa), and coffee. TBH, sounds like my kind of diet. It’s something to try!
