The answer is a resounding, yes. The diet plan not only includes consuming a healthy portion of meat, it recommends that protein be an essential inclusion in a Sirtfood-based diet to reap the maximum benefit in maintaining metabolism and reducing the muscle depletion common in most diet plans.. It’s not a meat heavy diet (we still remember the bad breath from the Atkins diet), it’s actually very vegetarian friendly and caters for pretty much everyone, which is what makes it so sensible an option.
Leucine, is an amino acid found in protein, which complements and actually enhances the actions of Sirtfoods. This means that the best way to eat Sirtfoods is by combining them with a chicken breast, steak or other source of leucine such as fish or eggs.
Poultry can be eaten freely (because it is an excellent source of protein, B vitamins, potassium and phosphorous), and that red meat (another excellent source of protein, iron, zinc and vitamin B12) can be eaten up to three times (750g raw weight) a week.
