Harry Styles may be ready to take some time off as One Direction prepares for their scheduled hiatus over the next year, but that doesn’t mean Harry isn’t dedicated to staying slim while One Direction wraps up its last few months as a group just weeks ahead of the release of their fifth studio album, Made in the A.M.
Speaking to The Sunday Times UK, Harry Styles opens up about his diet and exercise habits before revealing his secret to maintaining a shockingly small 26-inch waist.
When asked about how the group stays fit while on the road, Harry Styles’ bandmates reveal that Harry is into “protein and pilates” in order to fit into his signature skinny jeans, Mirror UK reports.
In addition, Harry Styles admits to drinking “bullet coffee” in order to keep himself from getting hungry during One Direction’s grueling tour schedule.
“Bullet coffee. It’s black coffee with a spoonful of butter in it and a spoonful of coconut oil, all mixed up together. I’ve been on it for two days. You don’t get hungry.”
Similarly, Harry admits that he enjoys meditation and Pilates to help himself stay fit while One Direction is on the road and admits to using a combination of boxing and running in order to stay active and keep his heart rate up.
Speaking on One Direction’s varying habits during their worldwide tour, Styles admits that he prefers the “quiet” plane when One Direction is traveling from one tour destination to another.
Comments regarding One Direction’s travel plans come just one day after Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson made headlines for their alleged “falling out,” which sources argue has led Styles to request to travel separately from Tomlinson and his bandmates.
A source close to Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson recently explained to The Sun, via The Mirror, that while nobody is sure what caused Harry and Louis’ ongoing feud, Styles and Tomlinson’s distance has created a “massive divide” within the group just shy of One Direction’s planned hiatus.
“It’s been central to everything else that came next with the band because there was suddenly a massive divide.”
Regarding Harry Styles’ decision to fly separately from his One Direction bandmates, Styles’ source alleges that it’s “something much more personal” and has nothing to do with rumors suggesting that Harry is merely avoiding the cigarette smoke from bandmates Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, and former member Zayn Malik.
Harry Styles’ source concludes by explaining that One Direction’s management team is dedicated to keeping Harry and Louis separated until the group takes their hiatus next year, especially since the group needs to put on a united front ahead of their Made in the A.M. release.
Despite the rumors, One Direction fans were quick to point out flaws in Styles’ source allegations about Harry and Louis’ friendship, noting that Styles and Tomlinson are so close with one another that it even sparked relationship rumors between the duo earlier this year.
Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson ignited romance rumors in August after fans began trending the hashtag, “#LarryStylinson,” which represents the One Direction fandom’s celebrity couple name for Harry and Louis.
Fellow One Direction member Liam Payne later shot down the relationship claims plaguing Harry and Louis, but neither Styles nor Tomlinson have spoken out about the claims.
While Harry Styles may be dedicated to keeping his figure slim just weeks ahead of the group’s new album reveal, it looks like the rumors surrounding One Direction’s alleged permanent split will continue to plague the group until their hiatus in 2016.
Is this the end of One Direction? And, what do you think of Harry Styles’ coffee diet?
