It’s also claimed that Adele, 32, hired a personal chef on the advice of her Hollywood pal Cameron Diaz because she’s ‘not a fan of cooking.’

A source told The Sunday Mirror that Harley suggested Adele follow a fitness regime which included 35-minute training sessions five times a week.

They said: ‘Adele is feeling incredible at the moment and her weight loss is due to a lot of things but she is also been getting tips from Harley.

‘Lady Gaga told her how brilliant Harley was. And that convinced Adele to get in touch.’

It was then reported that Adele hired chef Jason Harley to create her healthy dishes, following claims she had been following the 1,000-a-day Sirtfood diet.

The source added: ”She would have a green juice in the morning then work out. The she wouldn’t usually eat until 3pm or 4pm so she was also doing a lot of intermittent fasting.’

MailOnline has contacted representatives for Adele for comment.

On Thursday Adele’s former personal trainer spoke out about her weight loss, insisting her body transformation was never about ‘getting super skinny’.

The singer had showed off her incredible seven stone weight loss in a tight black minidress in a rare Instagram snap on Tuesday. 

Her former trainer Pete Geracimo has now told how it was disheartening to see ‘fat-phobic accusations’ against Adele before her dramatic weight loss.  

WHAT IS THE SIRTFOOD DIET? 

The Sirtfood Diet is based on sirtuins (SIRTs), a group of seven proteins

It focuses on plant foods which help to suppress appetite and activate the body’s ‘skinny gene’

Followers of the diet go through two diet cycles that last for three weeks  

Recommended Sirtfoods include: Kale, red wine, strawberries, onions, soy and dark chocolate (85% cocoa) 

The diet has been criticised for failing to provide any long-term benefits

Taking to Instagram, he wrote: ‘As Adele’s former London-based personal trainer, it’s disheartening to read negative commentary and fat-phobic accusations questioning the genuineness of her amazing weight loss.

‘In my personal experience of working with her through many highs and lows, she always marched to the beat of her own drum on her own terms. 

‘She never undermined her God-given talent by reducing herself to expose her flesh or be the over the top sexy vixen to sell albums. She let her voice do the talking, or should I say singing! 

‘She never once pretended to be something that she wasn’t. What you saw was what you got. And we all LOVED it!

‘When Adele and I started our journey together, it was never about getting super skinny. It was about getting her healthy. Especially post pregnancy and post surgery. When 25 dropped and the tour announced, we had to get ready for a 13 month gruelling schedule. 

‘In that time, she warmed to training and made better food choices. As a result, she lost considerable weight and people took notice. Her body transformation was splashed across every media outlet. The attention it generated was mind-blowing.’

The trainer also noted Adele has been through ‘tough personal changes’ since she moved to Los Angeles.

The singer’s big reveal came after she split from her husband Simon Konecki in April 2019 and filed for divorce in September.  

Pete wrote: ‘Since she moved to LA, it’s been well documented that she underwent some tough personal changes. It’s only natural that with change comes a new sense of self and wanting to be your best possible version.

‘She embraced better eating habits and committed to her fitness and ‘is sweating!’ I could not be prouder or happier for her! 

‘This metamorphosis is not for album sales, publicity or to be a role model. She is doing it for herself and for Angelo.

‘My hope is that people appreciate the hard work that Adele has done to improve herself for the benefit to her and her family only. She did not lose the weight to make others feel bad about themselves. 

‘This personal transformation has nothing to do with me or you. It’s about Adele and how she wants to live her life. She has not changed from the Adele we grew up with and have loved. There is just a little less of her to go around.

‘Just think, now that she is more fit and more fabulous, she might tour again! WIN-WIN!!!!’

MailOnline has contacted a representative for Adele for comment.

Adele and Simon share a seven-year-old son called Angelo and a People insider revealed her weight loss came partly from a desire to be healthier for her child.

‘She got to the point where she didn’t feel great. She knew she had to change something, because she wants to be the healthiest mom possible,’ said the source.

The insider added: ‘Her whole focus during the weight loss journey has really been all about how she can be healthier and how can she treat her body better. It was never about losing weight.’

A friend previously said the split had given her a new lease of life.

They told The Sun: ‘Adele has been out enjoying herself and she sees that as her priority at the moment, along with being a mum to Angelo.

‘She has been loving her new workout regime and it really works for her. It’s a bonus that she has shifted some weight.

‘Her mates are glad she’s letting loose and there’s nothing but good feelings towards her. She’s got a new lease of life.’

Adele and Simon first began dating in 2011 and welcomed their son the following year in 2012.

The pair then married four years later, wedding in secret, with Adele choosing to address their wedding for the first time during an acceptance speech at the Grammys in 2017.

Adele first confirmed her split from Simon in April 2019 and filed for divorce in September, with her ex reportedly agreeing to joint custody of their son Angelo just days later. 

A month after filing for divorce, Adele was romantically linked to British rapper and Grime artist Skepta, but it was claimed their relationship was never ‘serious’.

In December, reports surfaced suggesting Adele has since ‘grown closer’ to US record producer Jonathan Hay, who she is thought to have met earlier this year in New York at Quad Recording Studios.

Last year, Adele embarked on another astonishing transformation with The Sun reporting in June that she was doing reformer Pilates with Robbie Williams’s wife Ayda Field.

Her new figure is also reportedly partly due to the Sirtfood Diet, which Glen Matten and Aidan Goggins debuted in a book in 2016.

The diet reportedly allows Adele to indulge in red wine and coffee while stressing a regime of plant products like turmeric, kale, buckwheat and green tea.

These items are said to activate a person’s sirtuins, also known as ‘housekeeping genes,’ which suppress appetite by controlling bodily response to sugar and fat.

This January Adele’s former personal trainer ‘Brazilian body wizard’ Camila Goodis appeared on Lorraine and shed light on how the singing star took the pounds off. 

‘She’s working out but I think 90% of it is diet,’ said Camila, a 31-year-old who is based out of Los Angeles.

‘It’s a good diet to shed the weight. The first week is intense, green juices and only 1,000 calories. She doesn’t look too thin – she looks amazing.’

Camila told The Sun she met Adele through Ayda, who has been married since 2010 to English musician Robbie Williams of Take That fame.

She theorized Adele ‘has probably cut out processed foods and is eating soy and other plant-based foods.’

The fitness trainer added: ‘She’s found a diet that works for her. She looks younger and, more importantly, she looks happy.’

Back in February, a health expert on British daytime TV show, This Morning, suggested Adele’s alleged ‘1000-calorie-a-day’ diet isn’t sustainable in the long term.

Food writer, Dale Pinnock – aka the Medicinal Chef – warned the diet could have adverse side effects such as brain fog and irritability.

Dale explained: ‘If you’ve got a short-term goal that kind of approach could be very, very suitable – if you want to lose weight for a wedding or holiday.

‘But it isn’t sustainable. There will be a cut off because after a while your body will start to down regulate the things it will do.’

He reminded people at home that the recommended daily intake for a woman is between 1,800 and 2,000 calories.

‘[The body’s] top priority is survival, after a couple of weeks you won’t be as active, you’ll find that you get brain fog and become irritable, it kicks in quite quickly.

‘Slow and steady wins the race, definitely – find something that you can stick to.’

Last Thursday Adele’s makeup artist of 12 years Michael Ashton posted an Instagram snap of her and wrote: ”BTW…. EXCITING NEWS COMING SOON!!’

His cryptic caption sent fans into a tizz as they theorized that he was hinting at new music from Adele, whose most recent album 25 was released in 2015.

Earlier last month Adele was Live on Instagram with producers Babyface and Teddy Riley, and as their stream got repeatedly interrupted by glitches she cracked: Come on, it’s 2020 – we ain’t meant to get what we want!’

Although Adele’s next album is slated to drop this September her quip led some fans to worry that the release may be pushed until 2021.
