Adele's trainer says weight loss was never about getting super skinny

Adele's former personal trainer has spoken out about her weight loss, insisting her body transformation was never about 'getting super skinny'.

The singer, 32, who has been sticking to a 1,000-a-day calorie diet, showed off her incredible seven stone weight loss in a tight black minidress in a rare Instagram snap on Tuesday. 

Her former trainer Pete Geracimo has told how it was disheartening to see 'fat-phobic accusations' against Adele before her dramatic weight loss.

Taking to Instagram, he wrote: '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.'

The trainer also noted Adele has been through 'tough personal changes' since she moved to Los Angeles.

The singer's big reveal came after she split from her husband Simon Konecki last April and filed for divorce in September.

Pete wrote: 'Since she moved to LA, it’s been well documented that she underwent some tough personal changes. 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.

'My hope is that people appreciate the hard work that Adele has done to improve herself for the benefit to her and her family only. 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!!!!'

MailOnline has contacted a representative for Adele for comment.  

Adele and Simon share a seven-year-old son called Angelo and a People insider revealed her weight loss came partly from a desire to be healthier for her child.

'She got to the point where she didn’t feel great. She knew she had to change something, because she wants to be the healthiest mom possible,' said the source.

The insider added: 'Her whole focus during the weight loss journey has really been all about how she can be healthier and how can she treat her body better. It was never about losing weight.'

A friend previously said the split had given her a new lease of life.

They told The Sun: 'Adele has been out enjoying herself and she sees that as her priority at the moment, along with being a mum to Angelo.

'She has been loving her new workout regime and it really
