Chris Martin Reveals Why He No Longer Eats Dinner
During a recent appearance on “Conan O’Brien’s Needs A Friend” podcast, Coldplay’s frontman Chris Martin disclosed that he only eats one meal a day.
He revealed that he made this decision after he became envious of Bruce Springsteen’s incredible physique during a lunch they shared last June after performing together at the Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Martin revealed that the 73-year-old singer was in better shape than him, and he had asked for tips, to which Springsteen shared that he stops consuming anything at 4 pm. Since then, Martin has stopped having dinner altogether and only eats his one meal earlier in the day. “I don’t have dinner anymore,” he said, per Daily Mail.
Chris Martin’s Disastrous Cooking Escapades
In 2021, the “Head Full of Dreams” singer confessed that he had only tried cooking twice over the last decade. To make matters worse, he disclosed that he started a fire in the kitchen on both occasions.
During an interview with BBC Radio 2, he humbly admitted, “I’m not a great cook. I’ve cooked twice in the last ten years, and both times, the Fire Brigade came.” The musician made a shout-out to the North London Fire Department for coming to his rescue twice, stating, “I’d like to send a shout out to them – the North London Fire Department – who’ve saved me twice. The second time they came and said, “Have you been cooking again?.”
When asked what he had burned, he admitted, “‘Um, pasta and toast. I said I’d cook dinner, but then I got distracted and went to work on a song and forgot until….” he trailed off.

Earlier this month, Martin celebrated his 46th and received a sweet tribute from his ex-wife, Gwyneth Paltrow, who referred to him as the “sweetest father and friend” in a social media post. The founder of GOOP shared a selfie with Chris on Instagram, looking natural with minimal makeup and glasses, as she leaned on him in what appeared to be a parking lot.
Paltrow wished Martin a happy birthday in her caption and expressed her love for him. “Happy birthday to the sweetest father and friend. We love you, cajm,” she wrote.
Despite “consciously uncoupling” in March 2014 and finalizing their divorce in 2016, the couple has remained close friends and co-parents to their two children, 18-year-old Apple and 16-year-old Moses.
However, they have since vacationed together with their respective partners, Gwyneth’s husband, Brad Falchuk, and Chris’ girlfriend, Dakota Johnson, who is the daughter of Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson.
Gwyneth Paltrow Receives Backlash For Her Wellness Routine
Martin’s former partner’s unusual eating routine has recently caused controversy online. During an interview on “The Art of Being Well” podcast with Dr. Will Cole, Paltrow shared her daily wellness habits, which include fasting, bone broth, vegetables, IVs, and one hour of exercise.
According to her, she eats an early dinner and practices intermittent fasting. For breakfast, she opts for foods that won’t spike her blood sugar, such as coffee, followed by bone broth for lunch.
She added that for exercise, she does “one hour of movement,” either taking a walk, Pilates, or Tracy Anderson workout. Additionally, she dry brushes and spends 30 minutes in an infrared sauna. For dinner, she adheres to a paleo diet, consuming plenty of vegetables to support her body’s detoxification.
However, a clip of her interview shared on TikTok received backlash from viewers. Many criticized her routine, with some people questioning if starving oneself can be considered wellness. Others stated that they felt light-headed just listening to her routine.
