The “X Factor 2015” finale saw Adele considerably slimmer than in her past appearances. When asked about her weight loss, the "Hello" singer revealed that she simply omitted one item from her daily food intake and that has done the deal for her. The 27-year-old singing sensation has reportedly stopped having tea, which has resulted in her weight loss. Adele has revealed she used to consumer at least 20 spoons of sugar a day, two each for her 10 cups of tea. Now, she is totally staying away from tea.

According to, Adele is all set return to the concert scene. For this, Adele believes she needs to up her stamina. Aside from giving up tea, Adele is also hitting the gym regularly to stay healthy, though not for a “size zero or anything like that.”

“I used to drink ten cups a day with two sugars in each so I was on 20 sugars a day. Now I don’t drink it and I have more energy than ever,” said Adele, as reported by The mother of three-year-old Angelo has also started eating healthy and has given up booze.

When asked on her gym regime, Adele told Rolling Stone that she mainly moans and that she never enjoys it. She likes doing weights but hates looking in the mirror.

“Blood vessels burst on my face really easily, so I'm so conscious when I'm lifting weights not to let them burst in my face. And if I don't tour, you'll catch me back down at the Chinese,” she said.

The question is whether giving up sugar really helps one trim down or not. According to Scientific American, sugar and fat trick one’s brain into wanting more food. They can mess with brain’s satiety-control mechanism thereby increasing one’s appetite considerably.

Researchers have proved that human brain starts responding to sugary drinks and fatty foods even before one have taken a bite. Merely, the presence is enough for a craving. Finally, when one takes the bite and the food touches the tongue, taste buds present in the tongue starts sending signals to many regions of the brain. In turn, it starts releasing the neurochemical dopamine. This results in a strong feeling of pleasure.

In case one is constantly taking desirable sugary foods much more than needed, dopamine clouds the brain and it desensitizes itself to adapt. Thus, the brain starts demanding more sugar to satiate and reach the pleasure threshold. This results in one craving for sugar even after he/she is totally satiated.
