She lost weight a few months ago when she underwent surgery on her vocal chords.

But it appears Adele may lose even more weight after embarking on a new health plan.

Following her health problems last year, the singer is changing her lifestyle for health reasons instead of to lose weight.

After she was forced to quit smoking for the sake of her voice a few months ago, the 23-year-old singer is now on a health kick.

She's started working out with a personal trainer twice a week and take up pilates after TV presenter Alan Carr recommend it.

A source told The Sun: 'Adele has found so much more energy now she's quit smoking. She really wants to get healthier, now that she's half-way there.

'She had always been curious about taking up Pilates but until recently there just hadn't been any time.'

Last October, she was forced to cancel a string of gigs after a benign polyp was found on her vocal chords before undergoing surgery the following month in the U.S.

Last month, Adele defended her curvier figure after being criticised by fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld.

The German fashionista courted controversy when he said: 'The thing at the moment is Adele. She is a little too fat, but she has a beautiful face and a divine voice.'

She said in defence: 'I've never wanted to look like models on the cover of magazines. I represent the majority of women and I'm very proud of that.

'I don't want to be some skinny mini with my t*** out. I really don't want to do it and I don't want people confusing what it is that I'm about.'

Madonna also waded into the row and defended the singer.

She said: 'That's horrible. That's ridiculous, that's just the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard.

'I don't like it when anybody says anything bad about anyone – I don't like it. Adele's a great talent and how much she weighs has nothing to do with it.

'The thing for Adele to remember is at the end of the day, whether you rise or fall, it has so much to do with how you sustain yourself and keep your integrity and your inner strength.

'It is all about who you surround yourself with – friends and people who really do care about you, and care about your well-being beyond being a superstar. That's the most important thing.'
