Although most fans are just waiting to find out when Adele is going to release her next album, some are seriously curious about how she recently underwent a major body transformation.

From the photos that have been surfacing recently, Adele has obviously lost a lot of weight and she's looking way different these days than she once did. She's practically unrecognizable!

1. Adele was spotted over Oscars weekend looking more trim than ever.

Over the last several months, Adele has been seen out and about, sporting a much slimmer figure. Most recently, she was seen posing with Polish TV host Kinga Rusin at Beyoncé and Jay-Z's Oscars party, turning heads in the process, although Rusin has since deleted her post after all of the attention it garnered. She hasn't been too active on social media recently but Adele sightings like these just keep happening.


2. She's said that she's been spending her time sweating instead of crying.

In an Instagram post that Adele shared at Drake's birthday party in October 2019 — at a time when people couldn't stop talking about her transformation — she wrote, "I used to cry by now I sweat." Yep, it's a cheeky comment (punctuated by a laughing emoji, at that), but it still sounds like Adele has been channelling her emotions into working out instead of anything else. 

3. Last year, she shared on Instagram she was committing to taking care of herself.

In a post to celebrate turning 31 last May, Adele shared that in the year, she wanted to be committed to making a lot of changes and learning to love herself.


"I’ve changed drastically in the last couple years and I’m still changing and that’s okay. 31 is going to be a big ol’ year and I’m going to spend it all on myself. For the first time in a decade I’m ready to feel the world around me and look up for once," she wrote. "Be kind to yourself people we’re only human, go slow, put your phone down and laugh out loud at every opportunity. Learning to REALLY truly love yourself is it, and I’ve only just realized that that is more than enough. I’ll learn to love you lot eventually."

4. But how did Adele lose weight? Her goal has reportedly been health, not weight loss. 

According to a source close to the singer, Adele's weight loss came as a result of her goal to be the healthiest mom she could be to her son, Angelo.

“It’s easy to just focus on her physical transformation, but this is really about something bigger,” the source said. “She got to the point where she didn’t feel great. She knew she had to change something because she wants to be the healthiest mom possible. Her whole focus during the weight loss journey has really how been all about how she can be healthier and how can she treat her body better. It was never about losing weight. Her weight loss happened because she has cut down drinking and is eating more real food. But she now loves her physical transformation, too. She is more confident, dresses differently and she just seems happier overall.”


5. She has reportedly been tackling her weight with a combination of exercise and diet.

The same insider says that not only has changing her diet been essential to Adele seeing results, but so has her workout regimen. Adele has reportedly been using a combination of cross-training and full body Pilates to whip herself into shape, so it definitely sounds like she's been putting a lot of work in to make this glow-up happen.

6. Adele reportedly followed the Sirtfood Diet.

Another source says that Adele has been following the Sirtfood Diet, which is well known in the UK. It includes limiting caloric intake to 1,000 calories a day in the beginning, though that number eventually goes up. On the program, Adele can eat foods that include "sirtuins," like dark chocolate, red wine, and green juices.  

Regardless of how Adele has tackled weight loss, it's clear that she's been working hard and that work is paying off. Here's hoping she'll share more about her inspirational transformation soon.
