Liam Payne is reportedly causing a bit of concern for his management team at the minute, as he’s been getting obsessed with his body and fitness during his time off work.
Insiders say the One Direction star can think of little else than his gym, his workouts and sculpting his muscles and as a result there are days when he barely eats and survives on nothing but some coffee and a piece of chocolate.
Payne recently passed his driving test and his instructor – who also coached Niall Horan last year and has Zayn Malik signed up as a new customer – told The Daily Star that the Little Things singer is desperate to keep his weight down and will go to any lengths to do it.
Noel Gaughan told the newspaper that during the week long crash course he conducted with the X Factor star, barely any food was consumed because Liam didn’t have time to work the calories off.
“When I was with him recently, he went all day on just coffee and KitKats – five days in a row.
“He said he didn’t want to feel full when he wasn’t exercising.”
Liam showed Noel around his state of the art gym, which impressed the driving expert no end and he admitted that the singer is seeing some results. Gaughan could feel the six pack any time the 1D hunk leaned in for a hug.
However while his new pal might be impressed with Payne’s dedication to fitness, the newspaper reports that many pals and family members are concerned about Daddy Directioner.
They are worried that the stress of his job and pressures of his career are affecting his health and psyche and one insider revealed:
“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.
“But we do sometimes fear he might get carried away – especially if he’s not eating properly.”
Liam started working out almost a year ago, when One Direction hired a personal trainer to accompany them for most of their Take Me Home world tour.
The boys were pictured in the gym and taking on difficult outdoor sessions at almost every stop along the way and there’s no doubt about it, they all looked more chiselled as a result.
Payne was more dedicated that most though and even his training team admitted that he had the best band body by the end of last year.
It seems that the abs, the six pack and the guns come at a price though.
