Top-selling singer Adele isn't just getting raves for her music these days as more and more people are starting to take notice of how much she is losing weight. In a recent appearance on "The X Factor," Adele debuted her "new sleek hair do," per Mirror. However, the 27-year-old "Hello" hitmaker also looked a lot thinner than ever. The star revealed it is because she has been cutting on her tea drinking habits.
"I used to drink ten cups a day with two sugars in each so I was on 20 sugars a day," Adele revealed to The Sun over the weekend. "Now I don't drink it and I have more energy than ever."
The first-time mom earlier said that she also no longer indulges in alcohol in an effort to make herself healthier, as previously reported on Parent Herald. She has also changed her diet, but stressed she doesn't deprive herself of "odd sweat treat," per Daily Mail.
After giving birth to her son Angelo in 2012, Adele also made gym visits a regular thing. She admitted that she's keeping fit, not because she wants to achieve a size zero frame, but because she feels good and healthy with having the right diet and doing exercises.
Adele's efforts have successfully made her lose 21 pounds so far, but she admitted that the workouts are not something she especially enjoys. However, it is benefitting her at work too, as she has to prepare for the rigorous months ahead. Her tour dates for her latest album "25" have already been set in the U.K. and the U.S. Rolling Stone reported that she needs to build stamina for this, so she's cutting back on sugar and some carbs.
"I'm not, like, skipping to the f**king gym. I don't enjoy it. I do like doing weights. I don't like looking in the mirror. Blood vessels burst on my face really easily, so I'm so conscious when I'm lifting weights not to let them burst in my face. And if I don't tour, you'll catch me back down at the Chinese!" the songstress said to Rolling Stone.
On top of the diet and exercise, Pop Sugar shared that Adele also gave up smoking for the good of her son. She said she loves the lifestyle choices she has made. "It's not that f*cking cool when I'm dying from a smoking-related illness and my kid is, like, devastated," she said.
