Chris Martin has opened up about his own dieting habits after his ex-wife, actress Gwyneth Paltrow came under fire for her controversial dieting habits which many called unhealthy.

Although the couple is no longer together, they still have similar eating habits, with Martin admitting he doesn’t eat dinner anymore following a lunch with rock star Bruce Springsteen.

Bruce Springsteen inspired him to eat one meal a day

On comedian and former late-night host Conan O’Brien’s podcast, ‘Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend’, Martin was asked about what he learned after meeting so many prolific musicians throughout his career.

However, O’Brien was not prepared for what he would say when recalling his meeting with Bruce Springsteen.

“I actually don’t have dinner anymore,” Martin told O’Brien.

“I stop eating at 4 [p.m.] and I learned that from having lunch with Bruce Springsteen.”

The revelation caused O’Brien to joke, “What happened? You were having lunch with him and he said, ‘after this NO MORE! That’s it!’”

“I was lucky enough to go over there to lunch the day after we played Philadelphia last year,” Martin began to explain.

I was on a really strict diet anyways. But I was like, ‘Bruce looks even more in shape than me’ and Patti said he’s only eating one meal a day. I was like, ‘Well, there we go. That’s my next challenge,’” the ‘Yellow’ singer said.

Paltrow and her controversial diet

Martin’s ex-wife Gwyneth Paltrow recently faced criticism for talking about her experience with intermittent fasting. The actress said that she waits until noon to eat her first meal in the ‘Art of Being Well’ podcast with Dr. Will Cole on March 13.

“I usually eat something about 12, and in the morning I’ll have some things that won’t spike my blood sugar, so I have coffee, but I really like soup for lunch,” the ‘Royal Tenenbaums’ actress said.

“I have bone broth for lunch a lot of the days,” she admitted. The actress went on to say she then does one hour of “movement” which includes walking, Pilates, or other light workouts.

“Then for dinner, I try to eat, you know, according to paleo, so lots of vegetables. It’s really important for me to support my detox.”

Paltrow responded to the criticism of her diet on her Instagram story four days later by explaining her diet is based on her symptoms of long-covid, which cause inflammation in her body.

“So I’ve been working with Dr. Cole to really focus on foods that aren’t inflammatory ... so lots of vegetables, cooked vegetables, all kinds of protein, healthy carbs to really lower inflammation and it’s been working really well. This is, you know, based on my medical results and extensive testing that I’ve done over time.”
