What is the Sirtfood diet?
If you've ever considered following a weight loss diet, make sure you have all the facts first. Health editor Roxanne Fisher and dietician Emer Delaney take a look at the Sirtfood diet.
What is the Sirtfood diet?
It’s the latest diet craze everyone’s talking about, a diet rich in ‘sirtfoods’. If you’re trying to lose some weight after Christmas you may have come across this new phenomenon. According to researchers, these special foods work by activating specific proteins in the body called sirtuins. Sirtuins are believed to protect cells in the body from dying when they are under stress and are thought to regulate inflammation, metabolism and the aging process. Researchers also believe sirtuins influence the body’s ability to burn fat and boost metabolism, resulting in a seven pound weight loss a week while maintaining muscle.
So what are these magical ‘sirtfoods’? The ten most common include:
- Green Tea
- Dark chocolate (that is at least 85 per cent cocoa)
- Citrus fruits
- Red wine
The diet is a two phase approach; the initial phase lasts one week and involves restricting calories to 1000kcal for three days consuming three sirtfood green juices and one meal a day that is rich in sirtfoods. The juices include kale, celery, rocket, parsley, green tea and lemon and meals include turkey escalope with sage, capers and parsley, chicken and kale curry and prawn stir fry with buckwheat noodles. From days four to seven, intakes are increased to 1500kcal comprising of two sirtfood green juices and two sirtfood-rich meals a day.
The second phase is known as the maintenance phase which lasts 14 days where steady weight loss occurs. The authors believe it’s a sustainable and realistic way to lose weight. However, focusing on weight loss is not what the diet is all about – it’s designed to be about eating the best foods nature has to offer. Long term they recommend eating three balanced sirtfood rich meals a day along with one sirtfood green juice.
Dietician Emer Delaney says:
"At first glance, this is not a diet I would advise for my clients. Aiming to have 1000kcal for three consecutive days is extremely difficult and I believe the majority of people would be unable to achieve it. Looking at the list of foods, you can see they are the sort of items that often appear on a ‘healthy food list’, however it would be better to encourage these as part of a healthy balanced diet. Having a glass of red wine or a small amount of chocolate occasionally won’t do us any harm - I wouldn’t recommend them on a daily basis. We should also be eating a mixture of different fruits and vegetables and not just those on the list.
"In terms of weight loss and boosting metabolism, people may have experienced a seven pound weight loss on the scales, but in my experience this will be fluid. Burning and losing fat takes time so it is extremely unlikely this weight loss is a loss of fat. I would be very cautious of any diet that recommends fast and sudden weight loss as this simply isn’t achievable and will more than likely be a loss of fluid. As soon as people return to their regular eating habits, they will regain the weight. Slow and steady weight loss is the key and for this we need to restrict calories and increase our activity levels. Eating balanced regular meals made up of low GI foods, lean protein, fruit and vegetables and keeping well hydrated is the safest way to lose weight."
Please note: if you're considering attempting any form of diet, please consult your GP first to ensure you can do so without risk to health.

Diet and Psoriasis
Watch what you eat. Watch your weight. Both can affect the symptoms of psoriasis.
Food doesn’t cause or cure this skin disease. But research shows it can calm itchy soreness and even clear up outbreaks.
What Does Weight Have to Do With It?
If you're carrying a lot of extra pounds, losing some may help. Studies show that getting smaller may relieve your symptoms. In one bit of research, 10 people with psoriasis had weight loss surgery. Six months later, skin troubles had gone away for seven of the 10.
Your fat cells churn out TNF-alpha, a protein that causes inflammation and is "a driving force of psoriasis," says Meagen McCusker, MD, a University of Connecticut dermatologist.
"When people lose weight, they have less TNF-alpha."
Should You Go Gluten-Free?
Joel M. Gelfand, MD, a psoriasis expert at the University of Pennsylvania, hears this question a lot. He says some people tell personal stories about benefits they've noticed after ditching gluten, but there’s not enough research to say one way or the other if it helps with psoriasis.
Without strong evidence, “I don’t recommend it,” he says.
Of course, if you have celiac disease (which, like psoriasis, is an immune system condition), you need to totally avoid gluten.
If you think you're sensitive to gluten, ask your doctor to find out if you should take a blood test to see if you have celiac disease.
Cut Down on Alcohol
Too much drinking may make your psoriasis worse. That can keep your treatments from working as well as they could. So if you drink more than a "moderate" amount (up to one drink a day for women or two a day for men), it’s a good idea to cut back.
Nutrients You Need
Vitamin D: A study from Spain found that people with psoriasis had lower levels of vitamin D. It helps your immune system work correctly. Ask your doctor to check your vitamin D levels, McCusker says. You may need a prescription-strength supplement. But remember: Too much vitamin D can cause health problems, so you will need to work with your doctor to see if it is a good idea.
Fish oil: This can help your body tame inflammation. "I don't think fish oil can turn off psoriasis," McCusker says, but "people who take it tend to be a little less itchy, and their plaques tend to be a little less red." You can also get the omega-3s in fish oil by eating things like salmon, tuna, or mackerel a couple of times a week.
Small studies also found that fish oil could ease side effects of medicines used to treat psoriasis, such as:
- High triglycerides from drugs known as retinoids
- Kidney problems from a medication called cyclosporine
