In case you haven't heard the big news, a new diet is in town, and the best part is that you don’t have to cut out dark chocolate or coffee. So, if you need the motivation to start healthier habits (without giving up the good stuff), look no further—the Sirtfood Diet has celebrities raving. You may have already seen Adele’s weight-loss photos following her meal plan based on the Sirtfood menu; it's time we divulge the secret behind her inspiring transformation.
The Sirtfood Diet (also nicknamed the "Adele diet plan") is a mix of cutting calories and eating healthy foods that—according to creators Aidan Goggins and Glen Matten—"activate your skinny gene." In short, the diet helps to kick-start your metabolism, allowing you to burn more eat and lose weight faster. Goggins and Matten state that the diet also has the potential ability to reduce the risk of heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and even early death. They even observed that followers of the diet maintained or built muscle, slept better, and had more energy.
And the founders might be onto something. Thanks to the Sirtfood Diet, tens of thousands of people around the world feel more active and empowered. So, get motivated and consider ordering the international best-selling book The Sirtfood Diet. But if you just want to see what all the hype is about, here's a beginner's guide to the Sirtfood Diet.
What You Need to Know About the SirtFood Diet
The science behind the Sirtfood Diet is connected to sirtfoods, which contain high amounts of polyphenols. These polyphenols trigger sirtuins—a class of proteins that affect our cells and regulate our metabolic process. Combined with daily workouts, eating sirtfoods will help you attain your dream bod in no time. To improve your results, stick to the top 20 sirtfoods when preparing your meals:
- Bird’s-eye chili
- Extra virgin olive oil
- Green tea
- Medjool dates
- Red chicory
- Red onion
- Red wine
Just like intermittent fasting, the Sirtfood Diet can only have a positive, long-term, and sustainable effect once you understand how it works and what it stands for. Adopt the eating plan for long-term health benefits rather than just quickly losing undesirable weight. Purchase the book to gain a fresh perspective on healthy food choices, get inspired to try out new twists on classic recipes, and fully grasp the diet's concept.
If you follow the diet, you'll jump-start your metabolism; just savor every bite you take. The Sirtfood Diet is all about a healthy balance. Once you're in the groove, create your own sirtfood recipes. As long as your ingredients are fresh, good-quality, and have high levels of polyphenols, you’re free to concoct meals as you like. There are no limits to cooking and snacking anymore—it’s all about conscious choices.
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.

Before starting any diet, prepare yourself mentally and be mindful of your needs. A strong woman can reach any goal she sets her mind to. Inspire yourself, and your body shall reward you.
