ADELE’s incredible body transformation was never about being “super skinny”, her UK trainer has insisted.
The 32-year-old stunned fans by showing off her seven-stone weight loss this week.
She’s dropped down to a 1,000-a-day calories diet after vowing to get to a healthy weight.
But after Adele posted the gorgeous snap of her new look, many were furious at those complimenting her slimmer figure – claiming it’s “fat-phobic”.
Her ex-trainer Pete Geracimo defended the star, writing on Instagram: “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.”
Adele – who now lives in Los Angeles – split from her husband Simon Konecki in April 2019.
Pete said the singer has gone through “tough personal changes” that have inspired her dramatic weight loss.
He added: ” 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.”
He even hinted that Adele’s new healthy lifestyle could mean she’ll consider touring again.
Pete added: “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!!!!”
