Put Down The Cuppa – Adele Knows Why You’re Not Losing Weight

Adele has called out a British classic as the reason behind her impressive weight loss, and now we’re scared…

Adele tells it like it is. Whether it comes to heartbreak, her music or her hatred of Caesar salads with no dressing (“why would I do that?”), Adele just got real about her diet secret, and the reason behind her dramatic weight loss. Brits, you’re not going to like this.

Since she burst back on the scene in October 2015, Adele’s weight loss isn’t the only thing to change. She debuted a choppy new haircut on the X Factor final, has been testing out bejeweled manicures and even stepped out of her all-black comfort zone – you can see Adele’s weight loss and style transformation in full here.
