Let’s all take a minute to look back and appreciate Adele’s MASSIVE weight loss transformation which she unveiled on her 32nd birthday in lockdown. The Hello singer is stunning whatever her size and it has never got in the way of her storming success. Adele has always been a queen having said that she is perfectly happy with her size and refusing to work with anyone who had an issue with it. Back in October 2019, we saw her much slimmer figure and following her split from ex-husband, she has taken the revenge bod to a new level. However, there is a question on everyone’s lips- how did she do it?
Adele has been said to have credited her amazing weight loss to the Sirtfood Diet. What exactly is the Sirtfood diet then?
According to Good Food the Sirtfood diet is about eating food that is high in sirtuins. Sirtuins are believed to protect cells in the body from dying when they are under stress and are thought to regulate inflammation, metabolism and the aging process. It’s thought that sirtuins influence the body’s ability to burn fat and boost metabolism, resulting in a seven pound weight loss a week while maintaining muscle.

The ten most common sirtuin foods include:
- Green tea
- Dark chocolate (that is at least 85 per cent cocoa)
- Citrus fruits
- Red wine
Hang on… did that say red wine and dark chocolate. Ok, you have really got our attention.
The diet is divided into 2 phases, the first being restrictive and only 1000 calories a day for the first 3 days. From day 4-7 is increased to 1,500 and consists of 2 sirtuin rich meals and drinks. The second phase is the maintenance phase and although on the surface looks restrictive, the authors claim it is about eating the best foods that nature has to offer.
There have been reports to suggest that Adele has been worked with hypnotherapist Susan Hepburn in the last few months to help her achieve her dramatic weight loss. Her hypnotherapist (allegedly) has claimed to have helped the star kick her smoking habit and adopt a new healthier lifestyle, especially around food.
The hypnotherapist claimed it wasn’t about dieting or restriction but adopting a healthier choice. All too often, we get stuck in the cycle of restrict and binge and this isn’t sustainable in the long term. If we claim that we are cutting out certain food groups, you can guarantee what we will be obsessing about. Does this sound familiar? Certainly did to us!
It is thought that she has lost around a staggering 7 stone! I definitely want a little bit of what she’s having or what she isn’t having as the case may seem. As with any new diet, it has come under scrutiny by nutritionists for being too restrictive and not realistic. 1000 calories for 2 days is incredibly difficult to achieve for most people and adopting a balanced diet and exercise is a much safer way to go. However, it worked for Adele and we take our hats off to her.
We have been wondering if she had been having a bit of Skinny Juice in the morning to boost her diet or maybe some fat metabolisers. There is no right or wrong way to lose weight, only your way.
