"Welcome to the official Sirt Food Diet - the revolutionary way to lose 7lb in 7 days. Add healthy Sirt foods to your diet for effective and sustained weight loss, incredible energy and glowing health.
Switch on your body's fat-burning powers, supercharge weight loss and help stave off disease with this easy-to-follow diet developed by the experts in nutritional medicine who proved the impact of Sirtfoods.
Dark chocolate, coffee, kale - these are all foods that activate sirtuins and switch on the so-called 'skinny gene' pathways in the body. These are the same pathways more commonly activated by fasting and exercise - meaning they help the body to burn fat, increase muscle and improve health.
Based on trials that showed an increase in lean muscle, as well as consistent weight loss of 7lbs over the course of just one week, The Sirtfood Diet is revolutionizing sports nutrition and healthy eating."

Looks like they have all the buzzwords and ridiculous nutrition industry cliches covered. Even has celebrity endorsements and a clever marketing hook. This should sell a lot of copies.

I put this in the Nutritional Debate category for a reason: i'm not asking for advice. Therefore, please don't try giving me advice!
I lose weight faster than I 'should' according to any calculator, so I am always fascinated by any research that might suggest a reason why (the obvious answer is that I log too many calories, but that goes against all research of people's logging, so I am always open to other possibilities). The first seven days of this diet are clearly a success because you eat very little, but what interests me is the notion of 'sirt' foods. Having been on mfp for years, I know there are some very knowledgeable people on here and I would love to know their opinions of the mechanism described.

This diet was in all the papers and magazines this New Year in the UK, I don't know about elsewhere. Is it 100% mumbo jumbo or are there elements of truth to it?
