JOHANNESBURG – Zayn Malik has released his eponymous autobiography today (November 1st, 2016), where he discusses his concerning eating disorder.

Malik talked about how the eating disorder developed while he was still part of the band One Direction. According to Daily Mail, the ex-boy band member reflected on his time while part of One Direction and how sickly he looked.

“Sometimes I would go 2-3 days without food, because of the pressures I went through being part of the band,” says Malik in his autobiography. 


He left the group back in 2015 and has since been doing very well on his own. Last year he released a statement that said he wanted to have a normal life as a 22-year-old that could relax and have some private time out of the public’s eye (sic).

The image of skinny and frail Malik back in 2013, while getting out of the car was a bit of a concern, but nobody thought anything of it at the time.

Eating disorders are quite uncommon amongst guys but are very present if you live a stressful life. Malik felt the strain of traveling and performances around the world with his ex -band members and it started to show.

We can only hope you are feeling much better and have this under control.
