The Good Place star shared some of the memes herself on Twitter, which included side-by-side photos of Adele’s new Instagram alongside calorific food.  

She wrote: ‘Adele would hate this so much. I’m so glad she isn’t on here to see people weaponize her body against women. 

‘These memes are everywhere. This is so offensive. So destructive. So reductive. It encourages us to demonize and become afraid of food.’ (sic).

This comes as Adele’s former personal trainer has spoken out about her weight loss, insisting her body transformation was never about ‘getting super skinny’.

The singer who has been sticking to a 1,000-a-day calorie diet, 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.    

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! 

Jameela continued: 'These memes are everywhere. This is so offensive. So destructive. So reductive. It encourages us to demonize and become afraid of food.' (sic)

‘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.    

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’.

'Thank you for the birthday love': I hope you’re all staying safe and sane during this crazy time,' captioned the superstar

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.’
