Creating a Sirtfood Diet Plan
Integral to the diet is the Sirtfood Green Juice consisting of kale, arugula, flat-leaf parsley, celery, green apple, fresh ginger, lemon, and matcha powder. (A dream for every juice enthusiast, right?) The Sirtfood Diet plan also has two-phases, occurring over the span of a two-week period.
Lose seven pounds in the first seven days by consuming three green juices and one sirtfood-based meal per day—savor one of the many sirtfood-rich recipes such as miso-marinated baked cod or an Asian shrimp stir-fry with buckwheat noodles. Your caloric intake is limited to 1,000 calories per day during the first week, but it’s well worth the effort. Before you know it, you’ll drop one size before it’s time to begin the second phase.
Your daily intake for the second week increases to 1,500 calories; you'll consume two sirtfood juices and two mouthwatering meals, easily preparable thanks to your new recipe book. Reap the benefits of a plant-based diet and feel your energy levels rising.
From here on out, it’s all up to you—the ‘skinny gene’ is activated—so maintain a healthy diet while your fascination for sustainable, healthy living grows. Include as many of the meals and snacks suggested by Goggins and Matten while looking into other healthy lifestyle choices.
For instance, you can still enjoy meals from the Sirtfood Diet alongside your favorite foods in moderation. Living so close to the Pacific Ocean has its benefits, too, so try out the pescetarian diet for a week; this is a highly sustainable alternative to consuming meat products. Or, learn about the keto diet, which has a similar philosophy to the Sirtfood Diet.
