CAN THE SIRTFOOD DIET DO IT ALL?
A strong focus on Sirtfoods, complemented by protein-rich animal products and fish sources of omega-3 provides for the benefits of sirtuin activation as well as the whole spectrum of essential nutrients. However, like any diet the Sirtfood Diet will not be able to meet the selenium and Vitamin D requirements, and supplementing is suggested. Some supplements should also be considered for those that follow a vegan or vegetarian regime. Maximum sirtuin activation is also stimulated by regular exercise.
GETTING STARTED-THE EARLY DAYS
It can be tough to get started. The first week of the plan can be difficult with days one to three limiting the calorie intake to 1000 calories made up of three juices and one meal. Days four to seven are a little easier with a maximum of 1,500 calories per day. There is a whole range of nutritious Sirtfood recipes you can follow.
A thought process in this early period is to look and feel the health impact on both your body and skin and how your clothes fit less snugly rather than just focus on your body weight.
Consume the juices out throughout the day rather than having them too close together. Take the juices at least an hour or two before and after meals and do not eat any later than say 7 pm.
Although the early stage of juicing and fasting seems just good for those who might want to lose a little weight quickly, the general aim of the Sirtfood diet is to include healthier foods into your diet to increase your well-being and boost your immune system. However, there is a more important goal. Whilst the first seven days may seem very difficult, the longer-term plan can work for everyone.
By focusing on introducing Sirtfood rich ingredients into your everyday meals you can continue the fat-burning whilst enjoying your regular favorites. This is an eating plan that can continue to bring benefits over a lengthy period.
