Adele’s comeback was marked with not only a chart-topping new single but a dramatic look as well.The multiple Grammy award winner obviously shed a load of weight.
With her transformation, Adele said she feels so comfortable in her own skin now and she really likes how she looks. “I like who I am, I like everyone that I surround myself with. Obviously, I have insecurities but they don’t hold me back… I like myself more than ever,” she told Vogue.
The Sugary Tea
The biggest change Adele made was ditching her very British habit of consuming sugary tea 10 cups a day with two sugars each. She says giving up the hot drink makes all the difference. Now, the singing sensation is 20 sugars healthier. “Now I don’t drink it and I have more energy than ever,” she told The Sun. Although the self-confessed ex-couch potato has not revealed how much weight she actually lost, some observe that she has gotten rid of at least 50 lbs.
Adele’s Sirtfood Diet
The 28-year-old singer reportedly followed the Sirtfood Diet, which encourages weight watchers to eat plant-based foods like buckwheat, kale, green tea and turmeric. These foods activate sirtuins and switch on the so-called “skinny gene” pathways in the body. Because foods that are rich in sirtuin enzymes are thought to have anti-ageing properties, it’s likely that this diet plan can help you look younger, too.
She hasn’t entirely given up carbs, saying that she’s not “that crazy.” According to Look, the founder of Pure Package, Jennifer Irvine, arrange for Adele’s meals. “She’s eating a really clean diet, with lots of fruit and vegetables, plus lean protein and complex carbohydrates,” she said. Strawberries, dates, olive oil and dark chocolate with green tea, coffee and red wine, among other plant-based treats are examples of sirtfoods.
The plan focuses on adding specific types of food to your diet but does not prohibit others, even meat. However, Adele is also reportedly trying to stay away from meat because it reminds her of the eyes of her little dog each time she is about to consume meat.
Adele’s Fitness Plan
Adele is one of the many celebrities that have made an incredible fitness transformation. In an interview with Rolling Stone, she confessed she wanted to get in shape for herself, but nothing like being a size zero or anything like that.
Reports claim that she’s been hitting up the private KX Gym in Chelsea to work on strength and conditioning, as well as nailing the cable machines. Adele worked with Pete Geracimo, who has been a personal trainer for over 20 years and is also a fan of the sirtfood meal plan.
Adele’s workout routine primarily consists of weight training exercises. She has also admitted to running for weight loss in the past. The singer-songwriter is brazenly honest about hating exercise and, despite the changes in her body, it doesn’t look like she’ll be turning into a fitness buff anytime soon.
Kicking The Smoking Habit
For fear of dying from smoking-related disease, the superstar decided to kick her smoking habit. “If I’d carried on smoking I’d probably have died from a smoking-related illness and I think that’s really bad,” the songstress said.
The “Hello” singer ditched smoking to protect her throat, too, which was threatened by a vocal hemorrhage in 2011 that led to canceled tour dates and, ultimately, throat surgery. In the wake of her operation, her already incredible voice became obviously bigger and purer-toned. She’s reportedly added four notes to the top of her range.
“It does make your voice, like, brand-new,” she says. “Which I actually didn’t like at first, because I used to have a bit of husk to my voice — and that wasn’t there at first.” She is also banned from eating curry to safeguard her voice because spicy food can allegedly do harm on the vocal cords.
Becoming a mother has also contributed a lot to the physical changes Adele decided on taking. She has even limited her alcohol intake because her kid knows when she is having a hangover and she doesn’t like it. As for the smoking, she doesn’t want Angelo’s (her son) health to be affected by the smoke.The diva is older, wiser, and more thoughtful now. However, her drollery and “dirt mouth,” as she calls it, remain keystones of Adele’s character – and everybody still loves her.
