Celebrity Weight loss : Adele

The singer Adele has spent several years transforming her health and body.

The 32-year-old has shed over 7 stone after choosing to get healthier, initially for a 13-month gruelling tour schedule.

And, despite this weight loss, her mantra has always been about happiness first and looks second.

“I think no matter what you look like, the key is to, first of all, be happy with yourself.

“And then you know if you want to try to improve things that you don’t like about yourself, then do it after you appreciate yourself.”

Having read lots of the articles about Adele's weight loss, here's how she did it.

How did Adele lose weight?

Adele credits the Sirtfood diet and enlisting the help of a personal trainer for her weight loss transformation.

The Sirtfood diet, which I'll go into more detail a bit further down then page, essentially sees you cut out toxic and processed food and drinks.

But, it was Adele's initial lifestyle changes that got the ball rolling.

Back in 2016, Adele said “I was trying to get some stamina for my tour, so I lost a bit of weight,” she explained. “Now I fit into normal, off-the-shelf clothes, which is a really big problem for me!”

Goal setting

Adele's personal trainer, Pete Geracimo talked about how they originally set out to get Adele healthier, especially post-pregnancy and post-surgery - it was never about getting super-skinny.

In that early period, she made better food choices and began exercising.

Her personal trainer went to explain that "This metamorphosis is not for album sales, publicity or to be a role model. She is doing it for herself and her son Angelo," he explained. He added weight loss can be "massively empowering: and "a truly personal thing."

The best motivation comes from within.

You'll quickly find that external reasons don't last and motivation will wane without having that inner reason driving you on.

Adele's diet plan

Regardless of who you read about losing weight, they all have one simple thing in common.

It doesn't matter how they did and what diet they followed, they lost weight because they were in a sustained calorie deficit.

Back in 2011, Adele suffered from a vocal haemorrhage and said she was "always frightened" that she would further damage her voice.

Adele cut out cigarettes and caffeine in a bid to look after her voice but admitted it was tough.

Speaking to Australia's 60 Minutes she said: "It's f***ing boring, but I don't think you take your voice seriously until you've an accident."

After cutting out up to ten sugary cups of tea a day, fizzy drinks, alcohol and all "spicy, citrusy, and tangy" foods, Adele started to drop a few pounds.

In 2017 Adele adopted the Sirtfood diet plan.

It's important to note that Adele hasn't publicly recommended this diet, nor has she even spoken about it but it's widely reported that she followed this diet around 2017.
