KEY POINTS

  • Adele denied rumors that she followed a trend called the Sirtfood diet to lose weight
  • The singer said she ate "more" in the past few years because she was working out so much
  • Adele also slammed speculations that she wanted to get a "revenge body" following her split from ex-husband Simon Konecki

Adele has debunked some rumors about her 100-pound weight loss.

The 33-year-old British superstar, who graces the November 2021 covers of both the American and British editions of Vogue, told the Vogue U.K. that she lost weight due to working out consistently over a two-year period and not by following any specific diet.

After she made headlines for her weight loss last year, rumors claimed she had followed a trend called the Sirtfood diet. The concept was popularized in a 2016 book by pharmacist Aidan Goggins and nutritionist Glen Matten and involved eating foods that activate a protein called sirtuin such as green tea, blueberries, strawberries, red wine and dark chocolate, according to Insider.

However, Adele told British Vogue that she "ain't done that. No intermittent fasting. Nothing. If anything, I eat more than I used to because I work out so hard."

She also slammed reports claiming that she intended to lose weight to get a "revenge body" following her split from her ex-husband Simon Konecki. They announced their separation in 2019 and finalized their divorce in March.

"That whole thing of like, 'Gets Revenge Body'... Oh my god. Suck my d--k!" she yelled. "It’s ridiculous. I think it’s that people love to portray a divorced woman as spinning out of control, like, 'Oh she must be crackers. She must've decided she wants to be a ho.' Because what is a woman without a husband? It's bulls--t."

She explained that she didn't have the goal of losing weight when she began working out. According to the singer, she exercised because of her anxiety as she would feel better when she worked out at the gym.

"People are shocked because I didn’t share my 'journey.' They’re used to people documenting everything on Instagram, and most people in my position would get a big deal with a diet brand. I couldn’t give a flying f--k. I did it for myself and not anyone else. So why would I ever share it? I don’t find it fascinating. It’s my body," Adele said.

The pop star added, "People have been talking about my body for 12 years. They used to talk about it before I lost weight. But yeah, whatever, I don’t care. You don’t need to be overweight to be body positive, you can be any shape or size."

Adele also called out the "brutal" conversations that were taking place about her appearance in her interview with U.S. Vogue. She said she was "disappointed" and "hurt" that women were the ones making the "most brutal" comments about her body.

Adele acknowledged that she represented a lot of women when she was plus-size but emphasized that she was "the same person" after her weight loss.

Meanwhile, an expert recently warned that Adele's "excessive" workout regimen could have adverse effects on her muscles, joints and immune system. According to WebMD chief medical officer John Whyte, working out two to three times a day is "way too much."

"When we work out, we’re putting stress on our muscles, bones and organs. And if we don’t give those parts of our body a chance to heal after use, their function can begin to deteriorate," Whyte told New York Post Friday.
