Hello from the other side — of the scale.
All eyes were on Adele for her “Saturday Night Live” hosting gig this weekend, showcasing her seriously slimmed-down physique.
“I know I look really really different since you last saw me,” the singer said during her opening monologue, “but actually because of all the COVID restrictions and the travel bans, I had to travel light and I could only bring half of me, and this is the half I chose.”
Over the past year, the 32-year-old songstress has drawn both strong praise and rebukes for her recent dramatic weight loss. After posting an almost unrecognizable body-baring photo on Instagram in May to celebrate her birthday, some fans freaked out that losing that much weight is unhealthy.
Adele’s transformation is widely attributed to the Sirtfood Diet, a program founded in the United Kingdom that’s also reportedly beloved by Pippa Middleton. The plan, which is often compared to the Mediterranean diet, focuses on the protein sirtuin, found in kale, extra virgin olive oil, buckwheat, blueberries and matcha, but blessedly, also allows for dark chocolate and red wine. The first phase of the diet offers the potential for the subject to lose 7 pounds in seven days, starting with three days of 1,000-calorie limits, followed by four days of 1,500-calorie intake, after which one can eat relatively normally — if it’s a Sirtfood-packed dish, of course.
Aidan Goggins, co-author of “The Sirtfood Diet” along with Glen Matten, is thrilled with the curvy crooner’s success.
