Shape Of You Singer Ed Sheeran Lost Weight For THIS Reason, Find out
Ed Sheeran says he lost 56 pounds after trolls called him 'chunky' which made him insecure about his weight.
Popular singer and songwriter Ed Sheeran has recently revealed that online trolls calling him as fat made him lose weight. Ed Sheeran’s revelation comes in “Behind The Medal”. Ed Sheeran said that he called tagged “chunky” and “fat” by trolls and that left him wanting to lose weight, reported thesun.co.uk.
Speaking about the same, he further said, “I never had insecurities and people pointed them out — your brain starts thinking about them. It all stems from other people’s insecurities. So many people have things they’re insecure about so it makes them feel better to point out someone else’s. Because half the people that would point out that I’m fat are probably fat themselves,” he said.
He revealed that his wife Cherry supported him, and soon he started a precise diet and exercise regime to try to get fit while on his last world tour, which ended in August.
“My problem was I’d go to the pub, have bangers and mash, a pie, maybe a pudding and then loads of pints. And then not exercise. My friends used to call me Two Dinners Teddy. On tour, it’s very easy to drink every single day because there’s always someone visiting. I had to make a real effort on the tour. I’m 12st (stones) now. I started running. I’ve got into cycling as well,” he stated.
Shape Of You singer also said that his weight was the reason he didn’t feature in his early music videos. He added, “I wasn’t in my first three or four videos. I was the same sort of age as the One Direction boys and Justin Bieber and all these people who had six-packs and I was kind of like, ‘Oh should I look like this?'”
