2. A famous follower of the Sirtfood diet

The singer is reportedly a follower of the Sirtfood diet which is designed to activate sirtuins – cells in the body which are believed to regulate inflammation.

According to the BBC, researchers also credit sirtuins for influencing the body’s ability to burn fat and boost metabolism – a combination designed to garner weight loss results.

The diet is split into two phases. To kickstart the plan, followers are advised to restrict calories to 1,000kcal for three days by consuming three Sirtfood-approved green juices and one meal a day. From days four to seven, daily calorie intake is increased to 1,500kcal with two green juices and two meals now on the plan.

The second phase lasts two weeks and is designed to enable people to lose weight in a sustainable and manageable way. Food and drinks included in the meal plans include the likes of green tea, kale, citrus fruits, turmeric and blueberries.
