Adele, 33, is gearing up to release her next album after a six-year hiatus. She has been living her best life for ages, but fans have noticed a change in her over the past few years. It seems like she’s been super happy, and she's now opening up about the healthy lifestyle changes she's made.

In her first interview in five years, Adele has spoken publicly about her weight loss. She's sharing the strategies that helped her reach her goal weight and combat her anxiety.

Adele's exercise regimen includes weight lifting and circuit training – moves she's been working on for three years, according to Vogue.

In another interview with British Vogue, Adele said that during quarantine, she worked out three times a day: 'So I do my weights in the morning, then I normally hike or I box in the afternoon, and then I go and do my cardio at night,' she said. She added that she works with trainers like Greg Miele at Heart & Hustle gym in Los Angeles, California to get the most out of her sweat sessions, per Vogue.

Adele also confirmed that any rumours suggesting she lost weight by dieting are false. 'No intermittent fasting. Nothing. If anything I eat more than I used to because I work out so hard,' she told British Vogue.

For Adele, embracing a healthy lifestyle wasn't just about reaching a goal weight. 'It was because of my anxiety,' she told British Vogue. 'Working out, I would just feel better.' The singer also said that 'it was never about losing weight, it was always about becoming strong and giving myself as much time every day without my phone. I got quite addicted to it.'

Miele agrees that Adele's aim 'was getting stronger, physically and mentally. She got really turned on to movement, and especially strength training. So turned on that she started doing double sessions,' he explained to Vogue.

When asked why she didn't share more about her weight loss journey on social media, Adele told British Vogue 'I did it for myself and not anyone else. So why would I ever share it? I don’t find it fascinating. It’s my body.'

But she knows that plenty of negative comments have surfaced about her new look. 'My body’s been objectified my entire career. It’s not just now. I understand why it’s a shock. I understand why some women especially were hurt. Visually I represented a lot of women. But I’m still the same person,' she explained to Vogue.

Still, Adele said she remains confident and body-positive, no matter what. 'People have been talking about my body for 12 years. They used to talk about it before I lost weight. But yeah, whatever, I don’t care,' she said. 'You don’t need to be overweight to be body positive, you can be any shape or size.'

Weight loss or not, Adele seems incredibly happy these days. And really, that’s all that matters.
