Zayn Malik Had an Eating Disorder?

Apparently, it was during the One Direction days…
November 01, 2016

Zayn Malik has published a new book called ‘Zayn’ where he opened up about a condition he had years ago. The 23 year old star revealed yesterday that he suffered from an eating disorder when he was still a member of One Direction.

“When I look back at images of myself from around November 2014, before the final tour, I can see how ill I was,” he wrote. “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.”

“I didn’t feel like I had control over anything else in my life, but food was something I could control, so I did,” he added. “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.”
Luckily, this is all in the past, but the singer still has anxiety problems from time to time.
