Adele shined on the red carpet at the 2016 Grammy Awards wearing a black Givenchy gown. The “Hello” singer revealed in an interview that she lost weight to acquire more stamina during her tours.
“I was trying to get stamina for my tour, so I lost a bit of weight,” she said in an interview with Vogue for their March 2016 cover. “Now I fit into normal, off-the-shelf clothes.”
Adele first started her weight loss journey in 2011. She began jogging with her dog and went on a vegetarian diet. In more recent years, she’s cut back on sugar and worked out in the gym more. It was all part of her plan “to get in shape for myself, but not to be a size zero or anything,” she told Rolling Stone.
After Adele gave birth in 2012, she quickly dropped the baby weight and lost 30 pounds by 2013. But Adele was body shamed by Joan Rivers and Karl Lagerfeld.
Her weight loss was because of a vegetarian diet to which she was inspired to adapt in 2013 because of her fiance Simon Konecki, Celebrity Health Fitness reports. Additionally, the mother-of-one stopped smoking, lessened alcohol and sugar intake.
“I used to drink 10 cups a day with two sugars in each, so I was on 20 [spoons of] sugars a day,” she said. “Now I don’t drink it and I have more energy than ever.”
She also regularly exercises even though she admits to hating it.”I’m not, like, skipping to the f*cken gym,” she shared. “I don’t enjoy it. I do like doing weights.”
She once said that she would never lose weight because someone told her to and that she makes music to be a musician, not to be on the cover of Playboy. But most of Adele’s loyal fans have noticed that she’s been showing off a considerably slimmer look since she first hit the music scene. The 27-year-old songstress refuses to reveal just how much she actually dropped but she has spoken out about the simple changes she had to make to transform her figure.
We love that Adele’s pics include a rare glimpse of her son, Angelo, whom she and boyfriend Simon Konecki welcomed in October 2012. Adele is reportedly working on her next studio album, which is likely to drop sometime in 2014. Her last album, 21, won all the Grammys ever.
