Have you heard of Sirtfoods? Yup, me neither. My mum, on the other hand, has got her finger on the pulse.
Sirtfoods are those high in sirtuin activators – sirtuin being a protein that protects cells against damage. So the diet is supposed to aid weight loss by:
- Reducing inflammation
- Regulating metabolism
- Increasing muscle
- Burning fat
It might sound like yet another fad diet that works by fucking up your metabolism but … no, actually, I think that is what it is.
God, this makes me so frickin’ cross! WHY DO WE KEEP GOING DOWN THIS ROUTE??? Is it because most people have no idea about what they are putting in their bodies and need to be spoon fed (pun intended)?
There is only one diet that we need!
I, for one, will not be trying out this crazy, restrictive diet … except maybe the bit about red wine and chocolate.
