Zayn Malik is wasting away

At first he lost a few pounds, but now he is like a skeleton with a lot of hair. Is he suffering from the anorexia?

He seems very emo but he puts on a happy face for the group.

I think he was fasting for Ramadan

When you're young, you can sometimes forget to eat. The pounds melt away. Plus you need more calories as you're still growing.

And then you hit 25 or 30 (if you're lucky) and the metabolism slows down.

He'll be alright.

If I miss a meal, I lose a pound. I'm 26, so maybe my metabolism will slow down soon, but looking at my parents (60 and 61), my mom didn't start to gain weight until her 50s and my dad still loses weight in an instant, so I'm not hopeful.

Legs like sticks.

Damn - anorexic body and nasty sleeve tats. And he was the ONLY moderately attractive one in the group.

I hope its not the anorexia, he's a great looking guy

R1, he's been skinny long before Ramadan though.. the fasting holiday just made it even worse.

by Anonymousreply 908/09/2013

That is not a rapid metabolism, that is an eating disorder or other illness.

by Anonymousreply 1008/09/2013

He's stick thin.

by Anonymousreply 1108/09/2013

It takes WORK to get that thin. Just like it takes work to get morbidly obese.

by Anonymousreply 1208/09/2013

I'm under 30 and have a fast metabolism too. I could lose weight easily but if I eat normally I won't. My arms and legs were never that skinny. I actually work out to gain muscle weight. Malik's new body is not the result of working out, unless he's practicing to be an Olympic long distance runner as that's the body type he has now. He doesn't look healthy at all. I hope he starts to gain some muscle weight soon...

It was actually rumored last year that Zayn had an eating disorder, that he was anorexic. People just laughed it off.. said it was another fandom conspiracy.. like it was so ridiculous. I'm now starting to think they were right after all. He probably is suffering from anorexia or another illness.

by Anonymousreply 1408/09/2013

It has to be the anorexia. You can see that he is not just thin but also malnourished.

by Anonymousreply 1508/09/2013

He's lost all muscle mass.

Bad sign.

by Anonymousreply 1608/09/2013

I thought he looked fine when the pic first loaded. My family picks at me for being too thin for a guy all the time.

Then I scrolled down to the legs. Definitely looks like an eating disorder.

by Anonymousreply 1708/09/2013

wow, poor guy. :(

by Anonymousreply 1808/09/2013

He smokes as well which doesn't help matters.

by Anonymousreply 1908/09/2013

Sad. A lot of gay men develop anorexia - someone should find him an LGBT-friendly support group.

"I'll have what she's having!"

by Anonymousreply 2108/09/2013

He probably has been trying to hide the eating disorder but he can't anymore. It's either that or he's on that crack!

by Anonymousreply 2208/10/2013

looks sexy to me

by Anonymousreply 2308/10/2013

Wow, he looks pallid too. I hope he gets better. He seems like a sweet kid and he really is gorgeous.

by Anonymousreply 2408/11/2013

If R23 isn't joking, then he is seriouly fucked in the head.

by Anonymousreply 2508/11/2013

Well Zayn was always a naturally thin boy right from his school days and I don't think he comes across as a big eater.

Despite what people think One Direction work incredibly hard for their stage shows, touring and very active lifestyle. They are on the go almost all the time and that will tell on physiques.

Maybe Zayn fasts too but he's been like this for awhile now. My personal view is he is also under a deal of stress. That could be for a variety of reasons but these are really young people thrown into an almost too chaotic situation overnight from being very ordinary boys. The transition must be overwhelming at times, especially if you are shy.

Has anyone noticed Jared Padalecki's weight loss too? What is going on with these guys?

by Anonymousreply 2708/11/2013

i'm baffled at how some can look at the pic and still insist that he's "just working a lot". damn, his legs are so thin that he's hardly able to lift his sneakers from the ground. all the best to him.

by Anonymousreply 2808/11/2013

How can he even walk on those legs?

by Anonymousreply 2908/11/2013

Isn't he the one with the long time girlfriend? Clearly something ain't right with his life. How is nobody noticing this? Especially this stylist who give shim shorts to wear.

by Anonymousreply 3008/11/2013

Why are there people trying to say this is the result of stress or touring. You have to actually starve for a long time to look this way. He looks like Karen Carpenter.

by Anonymousreply 3108/11/2013

I would guess he's on drugs rather than him being a male anorexic. He was very skinny before so even a 5-10lb weight loss is going to make people take notice. Or he could just be doing too much physical activity and not consuming adequate calories. It's easy to fuck your appetite up if you're always on the road.

by Anonymousreply 3208/11/2013

Ugh I wasn't gonna look at this but OP wasn't exaggerating. OMG at those matchstick legs.I wonder if they're competitive dieting a la Girls Aloud.

by Anonymousreply 3308/11/2013

This look is what DLers aspire towards. They think size 34-36 waisted men are fat.

by Anonymousreply 3408/11/2013

Why would he wear shorts?

He is a homophobe!

Because he's muslim r36?

by Anonymousreply 3708/11/2013

r32 this is not what people look like who who have too much physical activity and forgot their snack. this is what people look like who are stranded on an island. he ist starving.

by Anonymousreply 3808/11/2013

The boyband life is absolutely nothing to envy. People like Bieber and One Direction have my utmost respect, not because I regard them as real artists but because I think they deserve to make millions for giving their lives away to perpetual hysteria, screaming and primal chaos. This is their entire lives. Pure unadulterated hell.

by Anonymousreply 3908/11/2013

Ok, he's *not* the son of Art Malik

(loses interest)

by Anonymousreply 4008/11/2013

He's going to end up in the hospital. Mark my words. Those guys are being put through the wringer. They're already have another album coming out, a movie, are on tour, endorcing products, music videos, promotion, on the road 24/7 since 2010. They're going to drop down dead.

by Anonymousreply 4108/11/2013

[quote]He is a homophobe!

Right, that's why he kisses, gropes, humps his band mates, and dresses in drag.

by Anonymousreply 4208/11/2013

R39 really gets it.

I would not be in their shoes for all the money in the world. These boys cannot even walk down the street for a packet of cigs without being mobbed, knocked over, screeched at, demanded of 24/7. Those that are bi or gay (and they do exist) cannot have an out partner of their actual choice because of ridiculous clauses. It's bad enough for those with public girlfriends and fans abuse/threatening suicide.

One idiot fan fell through a pane of glass once.

by Anonymousreply 4308/11/2013

Obviously, manorexic! This is so sad.

It's true, Zayn is a 100% homophobe.

When you have anorexia, can your hair stay that way? Well he is 20 or 21. But his hair is still fabulous

R3 = Myrna "Calliope Music in My Head" Finster

by Anonymousreply 4908/16/2013

r47, I was thinking that too. I haven't seen any dull hair/hair loss or skin down.

OTOH, many anorexics have round faces and don't always lose hair, etc.

In this day and age, r39, they know what they are signing up for. I get you, but how bad it is depends on the specifics of their contracts. Once they are done, they will have enough money for their great-grandchildren to live on.

I feel more sympathy for child stars like Lohan and boy bands in the 80s & 90s.

by Anonymousreply 5008/16/2013

He looks like my friend who was suffering from an eating disorder but no one even thought that was what his problem was. I figured he had a major stomach or colon problem. Not so. He wasted away like how Zayn looks.

by Anonymousreply 5108/16/2013

r41, in an odd way, that might work to his advantage; it'll be easier to get help and claim 'exhaustion'. In his case, it's actually believable.

by Anonymousreply 5208/16/2013

[quote]Has anyone noticed Jared Padalecki's weight loss too? What is going on with these guys?

Jared Padalecki said he pretty much stopped working out for his role on Supernatural this last season, which called on him to get sicker and more gaunt with every episode until he was near death in the finale.

I don't think that's what's going on with Zayn, alas.

Here is Lady Gaga telling Zayn to eat:

by Anonymousreply 5608/26/2013

Yes anorexics lose hair; it's just that it's a delayed phenomenon...happens about 6 months after the assault to the system. It will be noticeable at some point. It really wreaks havoc on the body. Sad.

by Anonymousreply 5708/26/2013

I dont think it's anorexia. I think he is doing some type of drug.

Ramadan fasting is hardly a chore. You can't eat from sunup to sundown and then every night, you feast.

They especially do well when Ramadan is in the winter.
