Adele’s former personal trainer has shed light on the superstar’s seven stone weight-loss, revealing she achieved her slimmed-down physique by sticking to a strict diet of ‘green juice and 1,000 calories a day’.

Camila Goodis gave a unique insight into the gruelling regime that has helped the musician, 31, shed the pounds on Thursday’s Lorraine, explaining she adopted an austere approach to mealtimes and stuck to daily workouts.

The Los Angeles-based personal trainer revealed the changes to Adele’s body are largely down to significant decrease in her calorie intake, cutting the recommended daily allowance for females of 2,000 calories by half.

‘She’s working out but I think 90 per cent of it is diet,’ Goodis told show host Lorraine Kelly. 

‘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.’ 

The instructor, who describes herself as ‘a Brazilian body wizard’, was introduced to Adele through Robbie Williams’ wife Ayda and even gave them a joint workout in the former Take That star’s Los Angeles mansion. 

Her online biography says she uses ‘a variety of Pilates and core strength training exercises’.

She recalled: ‘When she came for a work out I didn’t know it was her and when she left I thought “Oh it looks a little bit like Adele”.

‘She looks amazing – she’s changed her lifestyle and diet.’  

Speaking to The Sun in January, the fitness coach claimed the singer’s weight loss is mostly down to dieting because she doesn’t like exercise.   

‘I trained Ayda [Field] for a long time and it happens that they are good friends so I did Adele when she was there in Robbie’s house,’ she  said.

‘I don’t believe she liked exercise much but she has changed her lifestyle and I believe that 90 per cent was dieting.

The singer has wowed fans with her weight loss, which she first unveiled over Christmas and also showed off during a holiday to Anguilla with Harry Styles earlier this month.

It is believed the Rolling In The Deep hitmaker transformed her physique after a dietary overhaul but was inspired to do so for her son, Angelo, seven. 

A source told People earlier this week: ‘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 mum possible.

‘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.’

The comments come after college student Lexi Larson, 19, spoke to People and claimed that Adele told her she’s lost ‘something like 100 pounds’.   

Lexi crossed paths with the singer at the Blanchards Restaurant and Beach Shack in Anguilla. 

She said: ‘She said she lost something like 100 pounds, and that it’s such a crazy positive experience. She seemed so happy, and she looked amazing.’

The teenager said that the singer’s weight loss was evident as she met her in the eatery.

Lexi added that Adele did not want to take a picture with her as Angelo was present at the time, but did bring over Harry to chat to her group of pals in the restaurant. 

She revealed that she and a group of pals spoke with the British stars for around 15 minutes and discussed college life and their future plans.

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

Back in October, Adele joked that she ‘used to cry but now I sweat’ in an Instagram post, as details of her overhauled fitness regime emerged.

It’s understood that her huge transformation has been a result of reformer pilates, using weights in the gym, cutting down on sugar and also following The Sirtfood Diet.

The regime focuses on plant foods, such as kale and buckwheat – which help to suppress appetite and activate the body’s ‘skinny gene’.

The diet’s creators claim that following the Sirtfood Diet will lead to rapid weight loss, all while maintaining muscle mass and protecting you from chronic disease.

Followers of the diet go through two diet cycles that last for three weeks – following specific recipes and plans – and they are then encouraged to continue adding as many sirtfoods as possible into their food. 

However, Healthline report that although the low-calorie diet may kick-start weight loss, it is too short to have a long-term impact on health.

Speaking in June, sources claimed Adele’s her new workout regime had given the vocal talent a ‘new lease of life’ following her split from ex-husband Simon Konecki – with whom she shares son Angelo. 

Adele confirmed her split from Simon in April 2019 and filed for divorce in September 

The vocal powerhouse and Simon first began dating in 2011 and welcomed their son the following year, before tying the knot four years later.

Back in 2015, Adele revealed she had switched to a healthier lifestyle in order to keep her voice in good condition. 

Discussing the weight loss that accompanied her diet overhaul, she told Daily Life magazine that her new figure was the result of a ‘f***ing boring’ diet and gym sessions.

She admitted that she’d cut out alcohol, cigarettes, and caffeine, as well as ‘spicy, citrusy, and tangy’ foods, and is now a fan of smoothies. 

‘It’s f***ing boring, but I don’t think you take your voice seriously until you’ve an accident,’ she said, referring to her 2011 vocal haemorrhage. ‘I’m frightened all the time I’m going to damage my voice.’

Adele went on to tell Australia’s 60 Minutes: ‘I’ve always been asked questions about my body and my weight and my size and my style and stuff like that.

‘And I totally understand… It’s a little bit annoying that men don’t get asked that question as much.’

She went on: ‘But other than that it seemed to astound people that I was plus size and being successful, that was how I felt. 

‘I don’t make music for eyes I make music for ears… I don’t care anyway. You don’t see music, you listen to music, so what does it even matter?’
