Need some fitspo? Well, look no further! Celebrities including Adele, Rob Kardashian, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and Rebel Wilson have dedicated time and effort to lose weight. Needless to say, the hard work has paid off because these stars are feeling more confident than ever.
The “Hello” singer first showed off her weight loss when she attended Drake‘s birthday party in October 2019. She made some lifestyle changes after she split from her ex Simon Konecki, which included eating healthier.
“When Adele was married to Simon, she let herself go and lost confidence because she felt so unglamorous,” an insider exclusively told Life & Style at the time. “That’s why she’d go to extreme measures to avoid being photographed by paparazzi.”
Adele was determined to reach her goal. “She cut out her beloved cups of tea — she was up to 10 cups a day — which she used to drink with two spoonfuls of sugar,” a second insider revealed to Life & Style. “Now, she’s all about drinking green juice, eating salads … she loves kale now.” Up to that point, she had lost 100 pounds.
Additionally, there are other stars who became inspired to lose weight because of their limited environments, such as Jersey Shore star Mike Sorrentino and Real Housewives of New Jersey alum Joe Giudice. They were both in prison when they transformed their bods.
“I feel fantastic,” he divulged. “I’ve lost 40 pounds in this process. I worked out twice a day. I did intermittent fasting 16 hours for the weekdays, and I did 17 to 19 hours on the weekend.”
While Mike didn’t have access to a traditional gym, he found creative ways to do cardio and weight training. “I would do fasted cardio at 7 a.m. and come back,” he said. “I would have my protein shake and some food and go back for weights at 12:30 p.m.”
Clearly, inspiration can come from anywhere. Another way celebs have gotten inspired to transform their bodies is after giving birth. Just look at Jessica Simpson, for instance. She welcomed her third child, Birdie Mae, in March 2019 and lost 100 pounds in six months. How did she do it? It turns out, balance is key.
“Jessica’s secret is simple: consistent workouts and portion control,” a third source explained to Life & Style. “Working out is really key for Jess because she wants to be able to eat and enjoy life with her kids. She loves going out for date nights withand having cocktails, so she doesn’t like to deprive herself of that. It’s just about keeping it in moderation.” If these stars can do it, anyone can!
