On the Oct. 24 episode of Saturday Night Live, singer Adele made a joke about her weight. I know I look really, really different since you last saw me, the singer said. But actually, because of all the COVID restrictions and the travel bans, I had to travel light and only bring half of me. And this is the half that I chose.

Though the audience cheered and laughed, Adele wasnt kidding she has lost more than 100 pounds since 2016. The Hello singer relied on the Sirtfood diet to do it and its founders recently explained why the healthy eating plan works so well.

Adele rose to fame after appearing on Saturday Night Live back in 2008 as the musical guest. During her most recent appearance, she jokingly credited Sarah Palin for making her famous. (Palin appeared on the show the same night as Adele, which attracted millions of viewers.) Since then, the singer has gained a massive fan base, and about eight years later in 2016, she decided she wanted to get on a path to a healthier lifestyle.

According to Sirtfood Diet co-founder Glen Matten, Adele was a member at KX Private Members Club, a luxury members-only gym in Chelsea, London. This is where she was first introduced to the diet. We worked very closely with [Adeles] on-tour trainer, Matten told Good Day New York on Oct. 27. He put all of his clients on the Sirtfood diet.

Now, four years later, Matten is explaining how the Sirtfood diet worked alongside Adeles exercise habits to result in her changed appearance. Foods such as dark chocolate, olive oil, and red wine are allowed in the meal plan, and Matten credits the diets lack of restrictions as being the biggest reason for why it works.

The diet focuses on eating sirt foodsa group of plant foods that turn on a powerful recycling process in the body, Matten said. The reason these foods do that is theyre activating our Sirtuin genes [these genes] help to regulate our metabolism, they help to burn fat, and they make us healthier.

Matten added that the diet does not focus on removing certain unhealthy foods but rather adding healthy foods to create an overall better lifestyle. The point I would love to make is this isnt a diet of restrictions. So many diets. [Are] based on what you cut out, he added. Theres no restriction in this diet. Were focused on the foods we want you to eat Its a diet of inclusion. Matten also noted that, while the diet focuses on plant-based foods, its not a vegan diet, and meat and fish can easily be incorporated.

Kate Middletons younger sister, Pippa Middleton, is reportedly also a fan of the diet. Its been said that Pippa was on the Sirtfood Diet to prepare for her wedding, though it hasnt been confirmed. But Matten did mention that Pippa was a fan of the Sirtfood lifestyle.

E! News reported that Pippa was also a member of KX Gym in Chelsea, and its likely that her trainer introduced her to the Sirtfood Diet in the same way Adele was introduced.
