Pippa Middleton recently got married to James Matthews, a former professional racing driver on May 20 (Saturday) at Englefield Estate’s St Mark’s Church in Berkshire. Reports are abuzz that Kate Middleton's sister followed a new diet before tying the knot.

Middleton's process of reducing weight has allegedly been creating headlines as of recent. Get to know more about her diet and how she managed to reduce her weight before getting married.

Cultural Tradition That Even Pippa Middleton Couldn’t Say "No" To

It is still a cultural tradition that brides need to shed some weight before the big day and that’s the reason the pre-wedding periods get filled with weight loss tips and workout t-shirts with slogans like "shedding for the wedding." Now, it seems like even Pippa Middleton, the younger sister of the Duchess of Cambridge, was not able to escape this old tradition. She was on a very restrictive diet to reduce her weight before her wedding with James Matthews, as reported by Allure.

What’s The Secret Behind The Sirtfood Diet?

Pippa Middleton was a strict follower of the Sirtfood Diet, which allowed the consumption of only 20 approved Sirtfoods. Some of those foods were strawberries, arugula, coffee, cocoa, walnuts, kale, red wine, etc. These are high in polyphenols, a plant micronutrient that may help activate a person’s sirtuin genes, the aforementioned site notes.

Middleton used to abide by this Sirtfood diet - that is said to be very unsafe for the health. Eating only 1000 calories of food a day won’t give the body much energy or nutrients that it requires to survive. Whereas, mainly during the period of the wedding, when stress becomes a part until the last moment, it is quite tough to deal with such low energy supplying foods, IM notes.

The process of using the Sirtfood diet included three Sirtfood-rich meals and one green juice every day. But according to experts, the intake of less than 1200 calories each day is very unhealthy and risky and the body may succumb to several diseases. Stay tuned for more details.
