We have all the information you need to know about The Sirtfoods Diet

What are Sirtfoods?

It’s January. It’s that time of year where diet books compete for that bestseller spot and we all vow to be a leetle bit more abstemious following the festive splurge. So, what’s on offer in 2016 if you’re looking to make a real difference not only to your waistline but to your overall health and wellbeing? Enter The Sirtfood Diet.

Blogger and Sirtfood Diet guinea pig, Ruth from www.lethereatclean.com takes us through the latest wonder foods on the block.

Sirtfoods are a rather clever group of foods that are able to mimic the effects of fasting and exercise. So that basically means not ever feeling ‘hangry’ and quietly eating your dinner without having to work up a sweat before hand. And you’ve probably been unwittingly chomping away on some Sirtfoods for a while now; think strawberries, red onion, dark chocolate, kale and chilli.

Sirtfoods are able to regulate our metabolism in such a way that they burn fat whilst at the same time increasing muscle mass and keeping our cells in tip top condition. Some of the healthiest people in the world have been eating Sirtfoods for centuries and have, as you’d expect, the lowest rates of obesity and life threatening disease. For example, the Kuna American Indians who are mad for cocoa boast really low rates of obesity, diabetes, cancer and early death. Likewise the Japanese who are some of the biggest Sirtfood eaters but incredibly lean and long-living! And a little bit closer to home, here in the West, the much-celebrated Mediterranean Diet is laden with extra virgin olive oil, leafy veggies, red wine and herbs.

Up there in this month’s bestsellers is The Sirtfood Diet. The brain child of Glen Matten and Aidan Goggins, The Sirtfood Diet gathers together this powerful set of Sirtfoods to support not only weight loss but improved health. The diet starts with a rather hardcore seven days made up of days 1-3, (1,000 calories per day) which act as a ‘clean up’ for our cells and a fat burning kick start. In the final four days, calories up to 1,500 per day which is enough to keep fat burning signals turned on. In days 1-3 a Sirtfood-rich green juice is drunk three times a day, with a Sirtfood-rich meal eaten before 7pm in the evening. Two Sirtfood-rich juices and two Sirtfood-rich meals are eaten in days 4-7.

The Phase 2: maintenance plan is specifically designed to do what so many fad diets don’t – preserve all the benefits of week 1 and see even better results! Most importantly, perhaps, Sirtfoods are designed to be eaten for life.

So You Know...

As you've likely heard and seen, there's an increasing focus on the authenticity of follower growth and engagement on social platforms across the Influencer Marketing community. The platforms themselves have taken measures to deter inauthentic activity and brands now more closely scrutinise the audiences of the influencers with whom they are partnering.

The Flea Network has implemented a system that will detect abnormal spikes in following and engagement, and flag these properties. Of course, such spikes can often be attributed to viral posts or high-profile brands that bring greater exposure to some content.

If one of your social accounts is flagged by our system without an obvious reason, we may reach out to you for assistance in understanding it. If we find any influencer has artificially inflated their audience size or engagement using paid acquisition or automated, third-party tools, we will remove them permanently from our influencer community.

Feel free to reach out to us at bloggers@fleaenterprises.com with any questions or comments.

Thank you!
