Adele’s Weight Loss Wasn’t Planned
The interesting thing about her weight loss is that it was not even planned. Instead, it was to get Adele back to exercise after she gave birth. It was more of a going back to a healthy routine. Her personal trainer, Pete Geracimo, wrote on his Instagram,
“When Adele and I started our journey together, it was never about getting super skinny. It was about getting her healthy. Especially post-pregnancy and post-surgery.” However, as they progressed, Adele started liking exercise and a healthy diet and she continued.
Her trainer further wrote, “When 25 pounds dropped, she became very simmer than before and people took notice.” Since then, the British singer continued losing weight.
How exactly did Adele Lose Weight?
Adele lost weight by sticking to one plan and showing consistency. She followed each and every instruction her trainer, Pete, gave her. Adele did a lot of exercises and followed a disciplined diet plan. Besides that, she also got involved in multiple sports. Here are the details:
She limited her meat consumption and started eating more vegetables and fruits. Adele also gave up drinking for months. Instead, she focused on drinking more water in a day to help her maintain her hydration level as she exercised.
For lunch and dinner, the salad was a must on Adele’s dining table. Along with the salad, Adele would choose from fried chicken or fish. In breakfast, Adele would choose between eggs or a bowl of oatmeal. Along with a glass of carrot juice. Whereas before she drank tea.
As a British, Adele was in love with tea and would drink up to 10 cups in one day. However, she soon overcame this habit. She said, “Now, I don’t drink it and I have more energy than ever.”
And for snacks, Adele would either have almonds or sometimes yogurt. Yes, she enjoyed eating at restaurants but not more often.
Adele’s workout plan was equally disciplined. After pregnancy, she joined a gym where she did cardio and boxing. An important factor behind Adele’s weight loss is that she loves sports so much and always involves herself. Her Insta account tells us how much she loves football.
Besides football, she is obsessed with deadlifts, which was another factor behind her drastic transformation. She started deadlifting with 10 pounds and then gradually went up to 170 pounds. Adele does deadlifts on regular basis.
Talking about this, she said, “I am an athlete now. And I love it.” Describing the experience, Adele said, “Blood vessels burst on my face really easily, so I’m so conscious when I’m lifting weights not to let them burst in my face.”
Telling Vogue about her daily routine, Adele said, “So I do my weights in the morning, then I normally hike or I box in the afternoon, and then I go and do my cardio at night.”
