The full story from Daily Mail:
She once declared she would never lose weight because of pressure from the music industry. But as it was reported that she has just signed a record-breaking £90 million deal, Adele was doing a very good impersonation of someone on a diet. Accepting one of five accolades at the Billboard Music Awards, the singer looked stunningly svelte – a contrast to the curvier look she sported when she first found fame.
The Mail can today reveal the secret behind this weight loss: The Sirtfood Diet and a fitness plan from trainer Pete Geracimo – whose clients include David Hasselhoff and Kim Cattrall. The diet, which Mr Geracimo recommends, encourages slimmers to eat plant foods, such as kale and buckwheat, known as sirtuin activators, which suppress appetite and activate the body’s ‘skinny gene’. This is the same process caused by fasting or exercise and the sirtuins – also known as ‘housekeeping genes’ – help control the way our bodies handle fat and sugar, regulating appetite as a result.
The eating plan complements a gruelling gym regime and sees Adele consume the likes of green tea, cocoa powder and turmeric, that are high in sirtuin activators. But, anyone worried the singer, 28, is being pressured into starving herself in the name of beauty can rest easy: The diet still allows her to indulge in her favourite red wine and cheese.
A source said: ‘The Sirtfood Diet is all about losing weight and feeling fantastic through eating great-tasting food. It’s based on extensive research into the power of key plant foods, which when added to our diet turn on fat burning and improve wellbeing.’
