Pop powerhouse Adele almost broke the internet this month 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.
