ADELE’S massive weight loss was aided by a celebrity chef and fitness trainer suggested by pals Lady Gaga and Cameron Diaz.
Last week, the Oscar-winning singer shared a photo for her 32nd birthday and the world went nuts over how different she looked.
Adele stunned fans by showing off her seven-stone weight loss achieved by overhauling her diet and dropping down to just 1,000-a-day calories.
Obviously with such a huge weight loss, fans and followers were keen to hear how the mum-of-one did it.
Speaking to The Sunday Mirror, a source close to the star revealed how she got help from a specialist, including Los Angeles-based trainer Harley Pasternak whose A-list clients have included Ariana Grande, Megan Fox and Lady Gaga.
The source said: “Adele is feeling incredible at the moment and her weight loss is due to a lot of things but she is also getting tips from Harley.
“Lady Gaga told her how brilliant Harley was. And that convinced Adele to get in touch.”
Canadian Pasternak, who currently stars on “Revenge Body with Khloe Kardashian” on E! recommends a 35-minute strength training session five times a week.
It was previously reported that Adele followed the Sirtfood diet, which would include three green juices and one meal a day for three days a week and then 1,200 calories a day for four days a week.
In order to aid this, the Skyfall singer is said to have hired Los Angeles chef Jason Harley on the advice of Cameron Diaz because “she’s not a fan of cooking – especially when she’s dieting”.
The source said: “She would have a green juice in the morning then work out. She wouldn’t usually eat until 3am or 4pm so she was also doing a lot of intermittent fasting.
“Her meals would be stuff like shrimp stir fry with buckwheat noodles, chicken with kale and her treats would be these chocolate bites which were made with cocoa powder, dates, turmeric and walnuts.”
After Adele posted the radiant photo of her on Instagram to thank fans for her birthday wishes and salute front-line workers battling coronavirus, her followers were floored by her incredible transformation.
As comments began to swirl, many were furious at those complimenting her slimmer figure – claiming it's "fat-phobic".
Defending the pop star, her ex-trainer, Pete Geracimo, wrote on Instagram: "As Adele's former London-based personal trainer, it's disheartening to read negative commentary and fat-phobic accusations questioning the genuineness of her amazing weight loss.
"In my personal experience of working with her through many highs and lows, she always marched to the beat of her own drum on her own terms.
'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.”
Referencing her recent split from husband Simon Konecki in April 2019, Pete said the singer has gone through "tough personal changes" that have inspired her dramatic weight loss.
He added: " It's only natural that with change comes a new sense of self and wanting to be your best possible version.
"She embraced better eating habits and committed to her fitness and 'is sweating!' I could not be prouder or happier for her!”
