We all heard it – Breakfast is the most important meal of the day…
Moreover, healthy breakfast provides your body with key vitamins to help supply energy throughout the day.
The body needs these essential nutrients and research shows that if these are missed at breakfast, they are less likely to be compensated for later in the day.
it can be harder to lose weight if you don’t consume food in the morning.
In this article we share how a Sirtfood juice can help kickstart weight loss.
What does Sirtfood mean?
Sirtfoods are a recently discovered group of nutrient rich foods which are thought to activate the body’s skinny genes known as sirtuins.
The diet is based on sirtuins which is a group of seven proteins found in the body that have proven to regulate a variety of functions, including the metabolism.
Sirtuins are a group of proteins which ‘switch on’ different biochemical pathways in the human body.
It may not seem logical, but restricting calories and periods of fasting are in fact, good for you.
When you fast, this has many different health benefits, and incredible as it may seem, this tends to increase your life expectancy.
Scientists have discovered this is because going without food for prolonged periods, results in activation of your SIRT genes.
As your body prepares for starvation, protective mechanisms naturally come into play to preserve long term body functions.
Your body knows it’s in for a starvation – and get’s ready.
This is the key to weight loss – you can also activate your SIRT genes by eating specific foods – called SIRT foods. That’s the green juice – Yes – it’s full of SIRT foods!
Here is how to make the tasty green juice.
2 large handfuls (about 2 1⁄2 ounces or 75g) kale
A large handful (1 ounce or 30g) arugula
A very small handful (about 1⁄4 ounce or 5g) flat-leaf parsley
2 to 3 large celery stalks (5 1⁄2 ounces or 150g), including leaves
1/2 medium green apple
1/2- to 1-inch (1 to 2.5 cm) piece of fresh ginger
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2 level teaspoon matcha powder
1. Mix the greens (kale, arugula and parsley) together, then juice them.
2. Next, juice the celery, apple and ginger.
3. Then simply squeeze the lemon by hand into the juice before pouring a small amount into a glass.
4. Mix the matcha in and stir vigorously with a fork until the matcha is dissolved.
5. Add the remainder of the juice and give it a final stir.
There are numerous studies show that SIRTS have effects on glucose and fat metabolism.
SIRTS improve insulin sensitivity, may help regulate insulin levels, and assist in regulating glucose levels.
A low level of insulin is key to losing weight as high levels prevent fat from being broken down for energy.
Ginger can help decrease inflammation, stimulate digestion and suppress your appetite.
One study looked at ginger’s weight loss benefits and found that ginger has a significant effect on body weight and belly fat.
When you take ginger and lemon together for weight loss, you may be getting an extra boost for keeping your body healthy and increasing feelings of fullness and suppressing hunger.
While celery has been proven to be a negative calorie food.
It’s now been proven this is a negative calorie-food – this means you use up more calories digesting celery than you get from eating it!
In fact, it seems you use more calories up from celery in a smoothie than eating a stick of it raw!
Celery also contains lots of fibre which bulks out the food in your gut and helps intestinal transit. Increasing fibre in your diet is good for speeding weight loss.
Matcha is a key ingredient in these juices and helps boost weight loss while following the diet.
Known widely as a superfood, the power contains a lot less caffeine than a cup of coffee but can provide your body with an energy boost to keep you going throughout the day.
Matcha tea has been specifically shown to increase fat oxidation (breakdown).
