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 and it can be harder to lose weight if slimmers don’t consume food in the morning. Dr Deborah Lee, Dr Fox Online Pharmacy has shared with Express.co.uk how a Sirtfood juice can help kickstart weight loss.
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.
The expert explains: “SIRTS 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 siege – 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!”
