Ed Sheeran, 25, recently sat down with Power 105’s The Breakfast Club on Jan. 12, to talk about his music and his amazing weight loss journey over the past year. The “Thinking Out Loud” singer revealed that he lost an incredible 50 pounds, and he did it by just cutting — wait for it — BEER from his diet! OMG!
“It was the beer,” he told the radio show co-hosts, adding that he started exercising as well. Wow, that is insane! The singer spilled that he “doubled in size” during his break from the limelight after he finished wrapping his X world tour in Dec. 2015. “I didn’t realize how much I burned on stage,” Ed explained. “I stopped touring, and I just ballooned instantly.” Ed reportedly took a gap year from music to travel to Japan, Africa, and more places around the world with his GF Cherry Seaborn.

It wasn’t until he started noticing his clothes fitting tighter that he realized that he had to do something. “Sweatpants were the only things that fit, and I thought everything had shrunk in the wash, but it hadn’t,” he said.
The Grammy-award winner’s new appearance comes only two months before the debut of his third studio album, Divide, which will officially drop on Mar. 3. Ahead of the full album release, Ed also released his two lead singles “Shape of You” and “Castle on the Hill” on Jan. 6. Ed looks SO good! He’s admitted that he added beer back into his diet since losing the weight, but we’re assuming he’s drinking in moderation.
HollywoodLifers, what do you think of Ed’s tremendous weight loss? Can you believe beer was his dieting secret?
