Liam Payne can apparently survive on nothing but coffee and Kit Kat candy bars.
For those of us who still long for those younger days when we could consume anything at all and not worry about gaining a ton of weight, the very thought of eating nothing but candy for a week is enough to fill us with bitter nostalgia. However, Payne’s diet is understandably causing some folks to worry about his health.
According to Unreality TV, One Direction managers are a little concerned about the stuff Liam Payne puts in his body on a regular basis. Since the singer once spent five days eating nothing but Kit Kats and drinking coffee, they think he need to pay more attention to his diet.
Payne reportedly loves to work out, though his professional obligations often get in the way of hitting the gym. One Direction driving instructor Noel Gaughan raised eyebrows when he said Liam didn’t eat anything for almost an entire week since he didn’t have enough time to properly work off the calories.
“When I was with him recently, he went all day on just coffee and Kit Kats — five days in a row. Liam’s got his own gym which he showed me around. It’s amazing. He even showed me his six pack — and when he hugged me I could really feel his muscles,” Gaughan recently told the Daily Star.
Although some fans are no doubt swooning at the very thought of receiving a muscular hug from Liam Payne, his diet is definitely a cause for concern. Sugarscape reports that the singer’s unhealthy eating habits are raising a few alarms behind-the-scenes.
“The intensity of life in the band seems to affect Liam more than the other boys, and going to the gym seems to be one of the only things that relaxes him,” the source explained.
The insider added, “But we do sometimes fear he might get carried away — especially if he’s not eating properly.”
Considering that One Direction is reportedly working on a new album, chances are the band’s managers want Payne in the very good health when the fellas step inside the recording studio. According to Liam, he and his bandmates are writing material for the new album.
“We’ve been writing, all of us have been writing the next album. There’s another album coming out soon and it’s sounding pretty good,” he told Capital FM.
