    Ellie Goulding says becoming a vegetarian "changed her life"

    The 'How Long Will I Love You' hitmaker gave up meat a few years ago and admits it has made her feel so much better in herself and her appearance


    She said: "At the beginning of my career I was doing that no-carbs thing, which I thought was going to keep me thin. I was having to fit into the smallest dresses and constantly be photographed. It’s weird, because I was coming out with this music and gaining respect and then I realised that people were becoming interested in me for completely different reasons, like the way I looked.

    "Over the past few years I started being a vegetarian again and it’s changed my life. I rarely have breakouts and my hair has never been so healthy. It’s really hard to find a reason to eat meat again. It’s dangerous to become friends with me because you will probably become vegetarian!"

    Whilst Ellie opts for a much more healthier diet now, she still loves fast food.

    Speaking to The Observer, she added: "I definitely eat fast food, but McDonald’s wouldn’t be the top of my list, although they did bring out a vegan burger and I respect them for that. To be honest, it depends how drunk I am, because you never know - but I draw the line at eating meat."

    Meanwhile, Ellie previously admitted she is trying to persuade her meat-eating boyfriend Caspar Jopling to become a vegetarian.

    She said: "I'm trying to be a full vegan, I've been a vegetarian for six years. I was a vegetarian all the way through my teens as well. I'll definitely never eat fish or meat again ... My boyfriend is a huge carnivore. He comes from a farmer background but he stopped eating meat for a month. He said you really do feel better. Unfortunately, I haven't persuaded him to stay a vegetarian but he's very appreciative of it. We often go to a lot of veggie places. Tonight, we're going for an Impossible burger."
