Singer Adele Adkins put her 50-pound vegetarian diet weight loss on display at the 2016 Grammy Awards, where she ruled the red carpet in a form-fitting black Givenchy gown.
Adele also performed “All I Ask” at the Grammys, and looked glamorous in a red lace dress that spotlighted her slim waist and jaw-dropping weight loss.
The British singer has not disclosed exactly how many pounds she lost, but she has definitely shed more than 50 pounds based on before and after photos. Adele’s weight loss secrets were a vegetarian diet, cardio exercise, and weightlifting, Examiner reported.
Adele became vegetarian in 2013, saying she was inspired by fiance Simon Konecki. Adkins is no longer 100% vegetarian, but follows a mostly vegetarian diet to maintain her weight loss, as Celebrity Health & Fitness previously reported.
Other musicians who have lost dramatic amounts of weight on vegetarian or vegan diets include Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez and Carrie Underwood.
Beyonce’s longtime trainer, Marco Borges, said The 22-Day Revolution vegan diet helped Beyonce lose 65 pounds six months after she gave birth to daughter Blue Ivy in 2012
The 5-foot-7 Beyonce, who once weighed 195 pounds, has since maintained her weight loss and looks better than ever.
Similarly, Jennifer Lopez has credited Marco’s 22-day vegan diet for her 10-pound weight loss and age-defying beauty. The weight loss and anti-aging health benefits of a vegan or vegetarian diet aren’t surprising to physicians like Dr. Joel Fuhrman.
“The more greens you eat, the more weight you will lose,” said Dr. Fuhrman, author of The End of Dieting.
Dr. David Katz, director of Yale University’s Prevention Research Center, agrees.
“A diet of minimally processed foods close to nature — predominantly plants — is decisively associated with health promotion and disease prevention,” said Dr. Katz, author of Disease-Proof.
Adele hates to exercise, but has been working out regularly to build stamina for her upcoming world tour.
“I’m not, like, skipping to the f*cken gym,” she said. “I don’t enjoy it. I do like doing weights.”
As a result of her weight loss and becoming a mom, Adele, 27, is happier than ever.
“I like myself more than ever,” said Adele, who gave birth to son Angelo in 2012. “I feel so comfortable in my own skin. I really like how I look. I like who I am. I like everyone that I surround myself with.”
