Adele's Dramatic Weight-loss And How She Did It
- Parents Only
Pop powerhouse Adele almost broke the internet in May with a birthday shout-out on Instagram that revealed her dramatic weight loss. The superstar singer is barely recognisable having shed almost 45kgs.
While celebrities clamoured to celebrate her stunning new look, and critics railed against the hype, what everyone really wanted to know was how on earth she did it.
Apparently, Adele credits her new look to the Sirtfood diet, a calorie-based wholefood eating plan developed by UK nutritionists Aidan Goggins and Glen Matten. The diet focuses on sirtuins - a compound found primarily in plant foods - which trigger fat burning in the body. While protein, fruit and green juice reign supreme, there are regular days off for treat foods like chocolate, red wine and coffee.
She also has a new fitness routine including personal training sessions and Pilates classes, recently posting “I used to cry but now I sweat,” following the breakdown of her marriage earlier this year.
The singer’s former personal trainer, Pete Geracimo, has come out with his top three tips for transforming your body like the megastar mum. These include:
- eating a balanced diet
- an exercise routine that gets your heart pumping; and
- getting enough quality sleep
He adds that it is easier than we think, and we should have fun in the process, but ultimately we need commitment and patience to shed those COVID kilos.
The Book You Need To Read!
More recently, Adele also shared the book which played a huge role in her dramatic weight loss journey. In an Instagram post she praised Glennon Doyle’s Untamed: Stop Pleasing, Start Living, a book that focuses on who you were before the world told you who to be, showcasing how women can dare to live a braver, more authentic life, if they can just stop striving to meet expectations and listen to and trust ‘the voice deep inside’.
Adele said, “A good life is a hard life!' Read this book and have a highlighter on hand to make notes because you’ll want to refer back to it trust me!”
The book is available at BIG W for $22.
