Adele has been keeping a low profile in recent years, sharing only the rare image of herself with fans on Instagram, but then the star made a jubilant return to TV to host America’s SNL and reveal the results of her lifestyle and fitness overhaul in the process.
The 32-year-old singer showed off her slim figure in a pretty top on the NBC comedy show after transforming her body over the past year.
Emerging from the shadow of her 2019 divorce from charity boss Simon Konecki, Adele is thought to have lost a staggering 7 stone, reportedly describing it as a crazy positive experience to fans, and those close to the star claim it’s transformed her on a personal level as well.
A friend said that there was a lot to do with her weight loss that’s transformed her life, but that it was so much more than that.
Indeed, Adele refused to lose weight for anyone other than herself, but the London born singer first started improving what she ate after the birth of Angelo in 2012, and for the sake of her voice, the first thing she did was ditch her customary 10 cups of sugary tea and waved goodbye to alcohol, cigarettes, caffeine and all spicy, citrusy and tangy foods.
She told Australia’s 60 Minutes of her 2011 vocal haemorrhage. “It’s f***ing boring, but I don’t think you take your voice seriously until you have an accident.” And she admitted that she was terrified all the time that she was going to damage her voice.
In 2016 she shed yet more weight ahead of her tour in a bid to get some stamina, and by 2017 she was thought to have lost more than two stone reportedly due to implementing a second change – The Sirtfood Diet.
The food programme sees slimmers fill up on plant-based foods like kale, buckwheat, green tea and turmeric.
The foods are known as sirtuin activators and are said to influence the way the body processes fat and sugar and controls the appetite in the process.
Green tea and cocoa powder are also on the menu, along with red wine and cheese.
A source told a news outlet that the Sirtfood Diet was all about losing weight and feeling amazing through eating great tasting food and that it was based on extensive research into the power of key plant foods, which when added to your diet turn on fat burning and improve wellbeing.
But let’s face it, Adele could wear a plastic bag and still look fantastic, and why should she be judged on weight loss especially when she has such a remarkable singing talent, and has a stunning, incredible voice and personality.
