ADELE shocked fans in early 2020 with her dramatic weight loss.
And it seems the Rolling In The Deep singer has maintained her incredibly svelte figure, pictured this week in a stunning Vogue shoot looking healthier than ever.
The mum-of-one told how she she got divorced, became addicted to exercise and shed seven stone.
She told the November issue of Vogue magazine that her new album will explain to son Angelo, eight, why she chose to “dismantle his entire life”.
Opening up about her marriage break-up for the first time, saying: “It just wasn’t right for me any more.”
How much weight has Adele lost?
Adele is known worldwide for her superstar singing voice.
However, the Someone Like You singer stunned fans when her incredible weight loss became clear while on holiday in Anguilla, Caribbean, with Harry Styles and James Corden in January 2020, having been in the limelight for more than a decade.
She had already showed a glimpse of her new figure in October 2019, posting photos on Instagram of Drake's birthday party with the caption: "I used to cry but now I sweat."
Adele is believed to have lost an impressive 7st.
US holiday-maker Lexi Larson, who met Adele on her Caribbean break, said at the time: “She was saying how she had lost something like 100lb (7st). She seemed so happy and she looked amazing. She seemed really confident.”
Later that year, in August 2020, Adele posted a photo of her Notting Hill Carnival outfit on her Instagram, leaving fans going wild.
But the 33-year-old only acknowledged her weight loss in public for the first time during her appearance on Saturday Night Live, in October 2020.
"I know I look really, really different since you last saw me,” she joked. “But actually, because of all the Covid restrictions…I had to travel light and I could only bring half of me, and this is the half I chose.”
Adele started her weight loss journey a few years ago using a reported range of methods to get to where she is today.
So what were they, and how can you use them, too?
Adele is said to have taken up reformer pilates with pal Ayda Field.
Although in her most recent interview she said her exercise regime largely involved weights, hiking or boxing and cardio.
2. Home workouts
The Sun previously revealed how Adele's weight loss is also down to the Body Coach Joe Wicks, after secretly following the personal trainer’s high intensity workout videos – long before his fame amid the coronavirus pandemic.
A source said: “Adele’s been secretly working with these personal trainers.
“She’s not the sort to exercise in front of others, so she follows regimes and plans at home, using their videos and tutorials."
Adele herself admitted she dislikes the gym, telling Rolling Stone in 2016: "I mainly moan. I’m not, like, skipping to the f***ing gym. I don’t enjoy it."
3. Weight training
Adele told Rolling Stones: "I do like doing weights."
Weight training helps turn fat into muscle, which helps speed up metabolism. Unlike cardio-based training, it doesn't reduce muscle mass, which is vital for getting long-term results.
Pete Geracimo, Adele's former personal trainer from 2012 to 2016, said the British sensation “wasn’t a fan of training in the beginning", but soon they would work together for an hour, two to three times per week, and that Adele's competitive streak pushed her to self-improve.
After Adele recieved some backlash for her drastic change in appearance deemed "fat phobic", Pete revealed to Access Hollywood: "Getting skinny was never the goal."
4. Cutting sugar
Adele previously admitted she used to drink about ten cups of tea a day, each with two sugars in.
"Now I don't drink it and I have more energy than ever", she said in 2015.
Sugar in excess can lead to weight gain and even obesity, as well as rotting teeth.
5. Focusing on herself
Adele's heartbreak over her former husband Simon Konecki, also spurred her on.
In a rare Twitter post in May 2019, only half a year before she was seen looking staggeringly slimmer, she wrote: “This is 31 . . . Thank f***ing god. 30 tried me so hard but I’m owning it and trying my hardest to lean into it all. 31 is going to be a big ol’ year and I’m going to spend it all on myself.
“No matter how long we’re here for, life is constant and complicated at times. I’ve changed drastically in the last couple of years and I’m still changing and that’s OK."
There have been reports to suggest that Adele has been worked with hypnotherapist Susan Hepburn to help her achieve her dramatic weight loss.
She has been linked to other celebrity clients and is known for being discreet and refuses to disclose who she works with.
The hypnotherapist declined to comment when asked if she is working with the Grammy award winner, but did say she has helped many clients not only lose lots of weight, but also keep it off.
She said to The Telegraph: “It’s not a diet. I change [my clients’] mindset, to help boost their confidence and self-esteem. They just lose the emotional hole that makes them think of food the whole time.”
The former nurse from Yorkshire charges £295 per session and described the process she uses to change her client's way of thinking.
