Singer Ed Sheeran says he likes to dance for a healthier body rather than work out in a gym. The 23-year-old ‘Thinking Out Loud’ star said he likes to be healthy but does not enjoy running on a treadmill and prefers indulging in sports, reported Contactmusic.

“‘I’d like to be healthier but I just don’t enjoy working out. I enjoyed dancing and I lost weight while dancing. I could play football, I could do badminton. “I just don’t enjoy running on a treadmill or doing weights or doing sit-ups. It feels like it’s quite a vain thing to do too much. I think if you do it for health reasons, then it’s great but if you do it for image reasons, purely image reasons, I don’t think it makes sense,” he said.

Sheeran revealed he was not happy with his image earlier and realised he needed to eat right and avoid drinking alcohol daily. “I was never really happy with my image and then I realised it was because I was eating fried food and drinking beer every day. You don’t have to kill yourself by getting into shape. Just eat right and don’t drink every day,” the singer said.
