What is the Sirtfood diet? Adele’s rumored diet, explained

jhon pablo

After Adele revealed a transformation on Instagram, fans began buzzing about the singer’s weight loss.

For years, it’s been rumored that the star follows a meal plan based on the book “The Sirtfood Diet.” The regimen includes multiple phases and focuses on “cellular wellness at a genetic level,” according to Aidan Goggins, one of the creators of the diet. The Duchess of Cambridge’s sister Pippa Middleton and boxer Connor McGregor have also been said to use the diet.

“The Sirtfood Diet,” by Aidan Goggins and Glen Matten

What is the Sirtfood diet?

According to Goggins, the Sirtfood diet was created as “the antidote to conventional dieting.” He and his partner, Glen Matten, were both “diet skeptics” because of their history as nutritional medical scientists. Instead of focusing on weight loss, the Sirtfood diet is based on activating sirtuin genes. Sirtuins are proteins that are members of a family of enzymes.

Benefits, Downsides, and Foods List

jhon pablo

A no-carb diet is an extreme version of low-carb dieting. It eliminates almost all carbs, including whole grains, fruits, and most vegetables.

While studies show that decreasing your carb intake can help you shed pounds and may have health benefits, completely eliminating carbs is highly restrictive and most likely unnecessary.

This article provides a detailed overview of a no-carb diet, including its potential benefits, downsides, and foods to eat and avoid.

A no-carb diet is a way of eating that eliminates digestible carbs as much as possible.

Carbs are your body’s primary source of energy. They’re found in grains, beans, legumes, fruits, vegetables, milk, yogurt, pasta, bread, and baked goods.

Therefore, someone on a no-carb diet must avoid most of these foods and instead eat foods that contain primarily protein or fat, such as meats, fish, eggs, cheese, oils, and butter.

There is no strict rubric for a no-carb diet.

Low-Fiber Diet Caused High Blood Pressure In Trial On Mice

jhon pablo

These findings solidify evidence that this dietary correlation could also be a causation of cardiovascular problems for many.

03.03.20

An international study led by scientists at Monash University in Australia yielded evidence confirming that low fiber diets may lead to high blood pressure, a disease afflicting extremely sizeable portions of the global population.
 
If left untreated, high blood pressure can lead to stroke, myocardial infarction, a stiffening of the arteries and the muscles of the heart, and a stiffening of the kidneys, reducing their function. It’s the most common risk factor for cardiovascular disease.
 
The study, which was published last week in Circulation, used mice to test the difference between high- and low-resistant starch diets.
 
Resistant starches are a type of prebiotic fiber, which resists digestion until it reaches the large intestine, where it feeds bacteria that are considered to have health benefits.
 
The results found that mice fed a

A randomized controlled trial published in the journal PLOS ONE finds that symptoms of depression dropped significantly among a group of young adults after they followed a Mediterranean-style pattern of eating for three weeks. Participants saw their depression “score” fall from the “moderate” range down to the “normal” range, and

Ever wonder what Hollywood eats to stay healthy? We’re checking out the stars who follow vegan, vegetarian and paleo diets to stay fit.

It’s encouraging to hear promising inch-shedding results in only a few weeks’ time with minor input or effort. Fad diet marketers feed off this desire to lose weight quickly and many advertise their products to be followed for just a few weeks. But isn’t permanent change what we want? Fad diets’ restrictive nature or focus on “superfoods” deprive their followers of important nutrients. In fact, fad diets can cause problems like inadequate mineral and vitamin intake, gastrointestinal issues, dehydration and more.

Additionally, many people actually gain more weight in the long run. Before considering beginning a new fad regimen, you should understand that just because something markets a

What is the keto diet and how it helps your body burn fat

jhon pablo

Compared to the low-fat craze in the ’90s, the ketogenic diet seems to go against all diet logic. Because instead of cutting out fat, you eat large amounts of it for every meal.

Research shows that this diet can be effective and help fight diseases related to obesity. That said, the keto diet is not for everyone. Here’s what you need to know.

The ketogenic diet has been around for almost 100 years

The ketogenic diet was first introduced in the 1920s as a way to treat epilepsy, a seizure disorder. Medical professionals used the diet for two decades until modern epilepsy drugs were developed and it fell out of favor by the 1950s. 

That was it for the ketogenic diet for over half a century. Then, about 15 years ago, the diet reemerged. This time as a treatment for obesity and type 2 diabetes. 

But even people who are

A plant-based diet may have seemed extreme years ago, but today it’s all the rage — and for good reason. In many ways the planet and human health are in trouble, and a plant-centric diet is one way to address both issues.

More than 10,000 studies in peer-reviewed medical journals show that a diet based on whole plant foods leads to higher life expectancy and lower rates of cancer, heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer’s and most other chronic ailments. “If you eat the standard American diet, you’re going to get the

Murine breeding and housing conditions

Mice were maintained in a temperature-controlled facility with 12 h light–dark cycle and ad libitum access to water and a standard chow diet (S8022-S005, ssniff diets, Soest, Germany) or a diet with 45% of energy derived from lard (HFD, S9669-E006, ssniff diets, Soest, Germany) with or without 0.1% fenofibrate. All experiments and blood collections were undertaken in the dark phase. As described previously24,25, peripheral tissue inducible IR knockout mice were generated by crossing IRlox/+ (B6.129S4(FVB)-Insrtm1Khn/J) and CreER (B6.129-Gt(ROSA)26Sortm1(cre/ERT2)Tyj/J) mice and backcrossing on C57Bl/6 N background resulting in IRlox/+;CreER/+, which are referred to as PerIRKO+/−, where Per stands for peripheral. IRlox/+;+/+ littermates were used as control (WT) mice. Cre expression was induced at 10 or 18 weeks of age by administration of 2 mg tamoxifen (Cayman Chemicals, Michigan, USA) or carrier via
