This week’s pictures of the singer smiling on the beach in Anguilla after the New Year were notable for many reasons
She was the curvy star with a bombshell voice who enjoyed a stratospheric rise to stardom.
Now, as fans eagerly await the release of Adele‘s first new album since 2015, it appears she is a woman transformed.
Her huge smile spoke of a woman who is not just content, but brimming with joie de vivre.
The jaunty scarf at her neck sat above clearly defined collar bones and a swathe of decolletage that looked stunning, but considerably reduced from years past.
Her mini dress revealed a length of toned leg, proving that the 31-year-old singer has continued to lose weight.
Indeed, a college student who met the star on the Caribbean beach told a U.S. magazine that Adele revealed to her that she had lost ‘something like 100 pounds’.
‘She seemed so happy, and she looked amazing.
She seemed really confident,’ said 19-year-old American Lexi Larson.
Here, we examine how Adele achieved her stunning new look . . .
Fighting fit after hours in the gym
She may not be a natural gym bunny, but as any woman who has lost weight knows, shapely thighs and a defined waist don’t appear by diet alone.
Lean and toned, Adele’s physique bears the hallmarks of a woman who has reluctantly embraced the gym.

magazine that Adele revealed to her that she had lost ‘something like 100 pounds’. She is pictured last year in November 2018
She once famously said: ‘I’m not, keto supplements like, skipping to the f****** gym. I don’t enjoy it.’
The star is reportedly a fan of the training DVDs of The Body Coach Joe Wicks and Canadian-born celebrity trainer Dalton Wong, who has also worked with her close pal, Hollywood star Jennifer Lawrence.
Exercising at home is more comfortable for the singer, who admits she gets self-conscious because the blood vessels in her face burst easily.
On Instagram late last year she implied she’s been hard at work.
‘I used to cry, but now I sweat,’ she quipped under a very glamorous photograph, in which she revealed a slender shoulder.
Her routine is said to consist of 60-minute sessions that include circuit training and Pilates.
She is a long-time client of London trainer Pete Geracimo, who travelled with the singer on her last world tour.
In Los Angeles, where she bought a home four years ago, she’s rumoured to have joined the A-list following Rise Nation, a Stairmaster-like climbing class (3,500ft in 30 minutes).
And it seems she may also have turned to boxing.
An LA source says: ‘I’ve heard she’s been boxing with an instructor and that she really enjoys it.’
The ultimate toning workout, boxing can burn up to 400 calories in half an hour, and is also a great form of stress relief.
Pippa diet makes a big difference
According to her LA-based fitness trainer Camila Goodis, Adele’s weight loss is 90 per cent down to eating well and giving up processed food, sugar and fizzy drinks.
Adele herself has admitted she lost weight after cutting out ten cups of tea a day, each sweetened with two spoons of sugar.
She is said to have followed the Sirtfood Diet, of which Geracimo, is a fan.

Sirtuins are a type of protein that studies on fruit flies and mice have shown regulate metabolism, increase muscle and burn fat.
Apparently, many athletes (and Pippa Middleton, before her wedding) swear by the plan, which promises to ‘help you burn fat’ — all without giving up such indulgences as red wine and chocolate.
Adele also massively cut back her alcohol intake after giving birth to son Angelo, now seven.
