Did you see the Adele-Oprah interview? Even if you haven’t, it’s almost impossible to miss the hundreds of articles that have been posted and video clips popping up everywhere online.

While the fitness industry capitalizes on “Adele goes to the gym and loses 100 pounds,” I noticed something different in her comments about her body.

Her reason for going to the gym in the first place had nothing to do with weight-loss or body image. She seems perfectly comfortable with her body regardless of her size.

Ten Secrets to Permanent Weight Loss

Mar 19, 2020
You’ve done it! You made the commitment to being healthier and changing some unhealthy habits and you’ve accomplished your goals.
 
Now what?
Don't be fooled. Now that you've lost the weight, it doesn't magically stay at bay. Once you've reached your goals, you don't want to stop doing what got you here. If you return to old habits, your old body will return even faster and it will be harder to make the changes again in the future.
 
Here are 10 secret and simple ways to keep the weight off and maintain your new body and health. 
  1. Work with Weights – Ideally, while losing body fat you've also gained some muscle mass. This is important because studies consistently show that people with more muscle burn more calories throughout the day, all day long. This means your body will use the food you're eating instead of storing it as fat for later.
  2. Track your food or journal about it – When you write down what you eat, you will be able...
