Inside the Sirtfood Celebrity Diet Trend That's Taking Over the US
Men's Health

Recently, you might have heard of the the Sirtfood Diet , the trendy diet that promises you can lose up to 7 pounds in 7 days. Founded by U.K. nutrition experts Aidan Goggins and Glen Matten, the Sirtfood Diet promises to stimulate the âskinny gene,â or the proteins under the SIRT1 gene, to counteract the effects of inflammation and weight gain, as well as aging.The Sirtfood Diet is based on the principle that certain foods activate sirtuin, a (highly controversial) protein in the body that is alleged to help regulate metabolism and offer cell protection to slow down the aging process. Proponents of the diet say that eating sirtuin-rich foods like green tea, kale, blueberries, salmon, and citrus fruits can give the body a steady metabolic boost, allowing you to lose weight fast. Such foods are also packed with polyphenols, which are antioxidants that better your skin and heart, says Brooke Alpert, RD and author of The Diet Detox.
