Ellie Goulding is no longer so hard on herself when it comes to diet and exercise.

The 33-year-old used to have a “really bad relationship” with fitness and food as she would be super strict about maintaining an intense workout routine and healthy diet and then punish herself if she didn’t complete an exercise session every day or ate bad snacks.

But in an interview with U.K. Glamour magazine, the Burn hitmaker admitted that she has relaxed her mindset nowadays and can alter her plans depending on how she’s feeling.

“I think a difference now with me and my body is that because I’m in a happy place, I feel like I don’t need to do 10 mile runs every day, which would then cause me to go and eat loads, which would then cause me to go and run 10 miles, again,” she shared. “It was just a vicious circle of really bad relationships with fitness and food. But right now, I’m just a lot easier on myself and I say to myself, if I’ve eaten like c**p then sure I’ll do a longer workout. If I’m tired and haven’t slept well, like last night I went to bed at 4am because I just couldn’t sleep, today, I will just do a really slow jog and some weights.”

The British star went on to confess she had an “unhealthy” relationship with food because she was “so desperate for control and routine” and has tried every diet out there, including veganism.

“I also was really against eating meat and then I was vegan, but I wasn’t a good vegan. I think I’ve done every type of diet there is. I’ve never been obsessed with being as thin as possible, as I truly think to be strong is the most incredible thing ever for a woman,” Ellie added.

The Starry Eyed singer recently caused controversy online after she revealed that she embarks on a 40-hour fast every week.

Ellie Goulding paid homage to her husband’s Yorkshire heritage with the bespoke Chloe gown she wore to her wedding last month.

The Starry Eyed singer tied the knot with art dealer Caspar Jopling at York Minster cathedral in his hometown of York, England on 31 August, and her dress included fine details commemorating their relationship.

“I have never felt more special than the moment I first tried the dress on in Paris, and it was utterly awe-inspiring to see the craftsmanship and attention to detail,” she told British Vogue, referencing the gown’s embroidered white roses, a traditional symbol of Yorkshire.

Ellie also revealed that her and Caspar’s initials were woven into the fabric.

The 32-year-old worked closely on the dress design with Chloe creative director Natacha Ramsay-Levi and the fashion house’s team, who spent 640 hours working on the gown.

“I was so thrilled and excited when I found out that the iconic and unparalleled Chloe wanted to design a bespoke wedding dress for me,” the star gushed. “I have loved them and their incredible team for years, so it only seemed right for Chloe to play a big part of this special day.

“From day one they worked alongside me to design, from head to toe, something timeless and classic, but with all the Chloe opulence and spirit.”

In all, Ellie wore four different outfits over the course of her wedding day, including a white Stella McCartney gown for the reception, as well as a bodice and skirt from Ralph & Russo and a dress by Balmain’s Olivier Rousteing for the party.
