Zayn Malik Opens Up About Eating DisorderNovember 1, 2016 - Author: admin - No Comments
Zayn Malik’s new book, ZAYN has finally been released. While promoting the new book, Zayn sat down with the Associated Press and revealed he suffered from an eating disorder before leaving One Direction.
He told AP, “When I look back at images of myself from around November 2014, before the final tour, I can see how ill I was. Something I’ve never talked about in public before, but which I have come to terms with since leaving the band, is that I was suffering from an eating disorder.”
“It wasn’t as though I had any concerns about my weight or anything like that. I’d just go for days—sometimes two or three days straight—without eating anything at all. It got quite serious, although at the time I didn’t recognize it for what it was.”
He did tell AP that he was never diagnosed with an eating disorder, but he knew something was wrong. In the final months of being with One Direction Zayn revealed, “I didn’t feel like I had control over anything else in my life, but food was something I could control, so I did. I had lost so much weight I had become ill. The workload and the pace of life on the road put together with the pressures and strains of everything going on within the band had badly affected my eating habits”.
Zayn’s new book is out now! If you or someone you know needs help, please call the National Eating Disorders Association helpline at 1-800-931-2237.
