On her 32nd birthday of May 5th, 2020, Adele shared a picture on Instagram that shocked the world. In her most recent appearance, she posted a picture that showcased her amazing weight loss transformation and success.

According to People magazine, Adele has lost about 100 pounds.

So what’s Adele’s weight loss secret? Could it have been modern methods of dieting, fitness and exercise – or was it something much more aggressive, like weight loss surgery. Let’s dive into Adele’s weight loss journey. How did she lose so much weight so quickly?

Adele’s Biography

Adele is multiple Grammy-Award winning singer-songwriter and musical genius that took over the ears of over 2.6 billion people in her hit single, “Hello.”

It is without a doubt that Adele is an icon and a musical genius. Since 2012, Adele has written hit songs like “Hello”, “Rolling in Deep”, “Sky Fall”, and “Fire in the Rain.” But now her music isn’t the only thing that is turning heads. Her incredible weight loss journey is being questioned by major media outlets like CNN, CBS News, LATimes, plus thousands more. So how did Adele do it?

What Prompted Adele’s Weight Loss

In April 2019, Adele was shaken up by a separation with her husband of about 3 years sharing a 7-year-old son, Simon Konecki. After a massive 170 million dollar divorce battle, Adele made a drastic transformation in her life from a long-term battle with obesity.

Did Adele Have Weight Loss Surgery?

Weight loss surgery is one of the most results-driven treatment options for obese and morbidly obese individuals seeking weight reduction. With bariatrics, the weight drops quickly and has high-potential in staying off forever. Patients typically lose 70% of their body’s excess weight, shedding on average 60-80 extra pounds in a year or so.

That is why there is speculation that Adele has undergone a procedure like gastric sleeve surgery or gastric bypass surgery considering how fast she has lost weight.

Regardless of how she had such dramatic weight loss success, it is truly empowering to see another individual overcoming obesity and its related health issues, like diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and the Coronavirus (COVID-19) risk factor. We would like to praise her accomplishment to take control of her life and promote fitness and healthy living.

Did Adele Have Plastic Surgery?

Rapid and significant weight loss, like experienced from bariatric surgery, can cause loose skin. Genetics, age, and skin elasticity are all factors of whether one gets saggy skin after losing body fat.

Plastic surgery procedures like liposuction remove fat under the skin and not inside the body (around the organs). You cannot lose weight with plastics and is reserved for body contouring after bariatrics.

Skin removal after weight loss surgery leads to optimum results if it is performed at least a year out. Adele started showing signs of getting skinny around Oct 2019. So it is unlikely she has gone through plastic surgery at this point. She might have had a very balanced diet with regular workouts to help her prevent loose skin.

Celebrities You Forgot Had Weight Loss Surgery

Weight loss surgery isn’t taking the easy way out. But for many, it is the only choice left after diet and exercise fail time after time. Every year, over 250,000 of the population who are overweight and obese consider surgical treatment to get rid themselves of diseases related to obesity and social stigma – celebrities included.

Celebrities are like normal people despite being rich and famous. They struggle with the same challenges as the rest of us. The celebrities who have admitted to undergoing life-saving weight loss surgery to start a new life include:

Roseanne Barr, Rosie O’Donnell, Al Roker, Randy Jackson, Gabourey Sidibe, Lisa Lampanelli,  Star Jones, Sharon Osbourne, Graham Elliot, Khaliah Ali, Carnie Wilson, Caitlin Van Zandt plus many more.

So, What is Next?

The question is if Adele had weight loss surgery, will she ever share her experience with the world? If not, what was her weight loss plan and how did she manage to lose over 100 pounds in such a short period of time. Stay tuned…
