Ed Sheeran just earned his place in the celebrity weight loss hall of fame, losing 50 pounds with just a few shockingly easy changes to his diet and lifestyle. Proving he's a true star; the musician isn't keeping his secrets to himself, however. Instead, Ed has been dishing up the details of his weight loss success, reported the Mirror.

Ed Sheeran confesses weight gain

As for how the 25-year-old took off the pounds, Sheeran revealed that it was a combination of working out and diet changes. He only exercises 10 minutes a day but follows a high-intensity workout plan that his girlfriend Cherry Seaborn, 24, gave him.

Ed began the fitness plan and changed his diet after he gained weight.

Reflecting on his weight gain and subsequent weight loss, the musician explained he hadn't realised just how much exercise he got on tour until he stopped touring but continued the same diet of pizza and beer.

"My diet was pizza and beer, but because I was doing two hours a night I was really in shape," clarified Ed Sheeran. "I stopped touring and carried on my diet of pizza and beer. Suddenly I didn’t fit in anything."

Ed Sheeran describes diet changes

The shock of gaining weight motivated the musician to get serious about his diet, reported People. Sheeran admitted that taking a hiatus of a year from performing caused him to double in size.

“Sweatpants were the only things that fit, and I just thought everything had shrunk in the wash, but it hadn’t," commented Ed Sheeran.

While his exercise plan helped, Sheeran recognised that there was one key food he had to drop from his diet to drop the pounds. And that was beer.

"I’ve lost like 50 lbs,” boasted Ed about his weight loss after eliminating beer.

"That was it; it was the beer.”

Selena Gomez appreciates musician's new body?

When it comes to girlfriends who might be appreciating Ed Sheeran's slimmer body, he was linked to Selena Gomez during her hiatus, according to HNGN. The connection reportedly results from the fact that Selena is best friends with Taylor Swift, who also is close to Ed.

Selena and Ed Sheeran began "hooking up" after they spent time together during one of Swift's tours. Taylor reportedly may be delighted that her two pals are involved.
