Adele received widespread attention for a photo and message she posted on Instagram to mark her 32nd birthday this week. The photo revealed that Adele has lost a significant amount of weight, and while many commenters praised her, others criticized the focus on her physical appearance.
The singer credits her incredible transformation to the Sirtfood diet, which encourages slimmers to eat plant foods such as kale and buckwheat.
These foods, known as sirtuin activators, suppress appetite and activate the body’s “skinny gene”.
The diet allows slimmers to eat dark chocolate and drink red wine, as they are high in sirtuins.
Adele is also said to have taken up reformer pilates with pal Ayda Field.
The former X Factor judge, 40, introduced Adele to pilates instructor Camila Goodis, 36, who laid on joint workouts for the pair at Robbie’s LA home.
But Brazilian Camila has told how Adele hates exercise and believes her recent body transformation is down to “90 per cent dieting”.
Camila said: “I trained Ayda for a long time and it happens that they are good friends so I did Adele when she was there in Robbie’s house.
“I don’t believe she liked exercise much but she has changed her lifestyle and I believe that 90 per cent was dieting.”
She said Adele is not one of her current clients but believes the secret to her weight loss is giving up processed food, sugar and fizzy drinks.
She suggested it was down to “a healthy balanced diet, eating less calories a day and expending more energy”. Adele exercises around three times a week, according to a source who spoke to Us Weekly in July 2019. “Adele never cared about or liked working out,” the source said. But it has become a part of her normal routine, and she’s been alternating between cross-training and Pilates. “She does 60-minute sessions that include cardio, circuit training, and Pilates … She’s found a routine that’s working for her and is enjoying it more.”
Since the star plans to release new music this year, a source confirmed she’s feeling “happy and excited about the future. She is a new woman with the same great sense of humor. She loves her friends and feels a great deal of confidence.”
