Singer Adele has certainly come a long way since she first burst onto the music scene in 2008 with her moving songs and amazing voice. The star has gone from strength-to-strength in her career, picking up a multitude of awards along the way and earning herself the title of the richest solo female musician thanks to her huge success.

As Adele has transformed herself from a Tottenham-born BRIT school grad to a universally recognised and loved songstress, the singer has also dramatically changed her image along the way. Recently, the singer lost an incredible 50 pounds in weight and looked slimmer than ever walking the red carpet at the Grammy Awards.

So, how did she do it? Well the star confessed that as well as exercising more and trying to stick to a healthier diet, she also had to cut out one major element of her daily routine. Cups of tea!

“I used to drink ten cups a day with two sugars in each so I was on 20 sugars a day” Adele revealed.

“Now I don’t drink tea anymore and I have more energy than ever.”

However, Adele isn’t about to become a gym bunny any time soon. Her philosophy? “Be happy and healthy.”

“I’ve never had a problem with the way I look” the singer stated. “I’d rather have lunch with my friends than go to a gym.”

““I enjoy being me; I always have done. I’ve seen people where it rules their lives, you know, who want to be thinner or have bigger boobs, and it wears them down. And I don’t want that in my life.”
