‘Untamed’ self-help book Adele credits 44-kilogram weight loss launches at Big W for $22

Australians can now buy the ‘life-changing’ self-help book Adele credits for her remarkable 44-kilogram weight loss for $22 at Big W.

In a rare Instagram post on Saturday, the British pop icon, 32, said reading ‘Untamed: Stop Pleasing, Start Living’ by American author Glennon Doyle made her ‘soul scream’ and led her to find ‘happiness and freedom’ she’d never known before.

The blurb describes the book, which is available in-store and online from the department store, as an exploration of the ‘joy and peace we discover when we stop striving to meet the expectations of the world’.

In her endorsement, 15-time Grammy winner Adele – who shed a remarkable seven stone on a strict diet of 1,000 calories a day over the past year – said reading it made her feel ‘as if I just flew into my body for the very first time’.


‘Anyone who has any kind of capacity to truly let go and give into yourself with any kind of desire to hold on for dear life – Do it. Read it. Live it. Practice it,’ she added.

‘We are a lot! But we are meant to be a lot!’

The mother-of-one, who shares seven-year-old son Angelo with ex-husband Simon Konecki, said the book led her to realise that true contentment can only come from inside yourself.

‘I never knew that I am solely responsible for my own joy, happiness and freedom! Who knew our own liberation liberates those around us? Cause I didn’t!’ she wrote.

‘I thought we were meant to be stressed and disheveled, confused and selfless like a Disney character! ProBloodyFound (sic)!’

Adele signed off by calling the 44-year-old author an ‘absolute don’ and telling followers that the book is so monumental, it’s one she will return to for guidance for the rest of her life.

And Adele is far from the only celebrity to herald Glennon Doyle’s writing as a masterpiece in self-improvement. 

A host of stars including talk-show queen Oprah Winfrey and actress Jennifer Aniston have lined up to praise the mother-of-three, now a New York Times bestselling author.

Gushing Instagram tributes have also flowed from Hollywood elite Reese Witherspoon and Mandy Moore.

Glennon, who started her career as a mummy blogger documenting the mundanities of American suburban life, has since penned three best-selling memoirs – ‘Carry on, Warrior’, ‘Love Warrior’ and ‘Untamed’ – netting herself an estimated fortune of $5.5 million (AUD).
