Chris Martin never eats dinner because of Bruce Springsteen

Chris Martin has revealed why he no longer eats dinner.

It's criminal behaviour since - and I'm not arguing with you on this - dinner is, and always will be, the best meal of the day.

You can sit down in front of the TV, collapsing on the sofa after a hard day's work, knowing the next activity on your to-do list is to snuggle up for a peaceful slumber after tucking into a plate-full of food your stomach has been grumbling over during your commute home.

However, Coldplay singer-songwriter Chris Martin's evenings clearly look exceedingly different to mine - and it's apparently all because of fellow musician and 'hero' Bruce Springsteen.

In an interview with Conan O'Brien for his YouTube series, 'Conan O'Brien Needs a Friend: Musician series,' Martin scandalously revealed he's given up eating dinner.

The singer explains: "I stop eating at 4pm and I learnt that from having lunch with Bruce Springsteen.

"I was lucky enough to go over there for lunch the day after we played Philadelphia last year. I was on a really strict diet anyway.

"But I was like, ‘Bruce looks even more in shape than me’ and Patti [Scialfa, his wife] said he’s only eating one meal a day. I was like, ‘Well, there we go. That’s my next challenge'."

While he may be following eagerly in the footsteps of one of his heroes, Martin is entering into murky and controversial waters.

Only last week, Martin's ex-wife Gwyneth Paltrow came under fire on social media for sharing her daily diet or 'wellness' routine.

The actor turned businesswoman told Dr Will Cole on his podcast The Art of Being Well: "I eat dinner early in the evening. I do a nice intermittent fast. 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. I have bone broth for lunch a lot of the days. Try to do one hour of movement, so I'll either take a walk, or I'll do pilates or I'll do my Tracy Anderson."

Martin didn't confirm whether or not he eats only one meal a day - exactly like Springsteen - or if he just stops eating after 4pm, subsequently only skipping dinner.

However, it would seem the Coldplay singer and Paltrow follow similar long stints going without food.

As a result of sharing her diet, Paltrow was accused of 'normalising disordered eating' by a dietician.

The question is, is Martin doing the same?
