Chris Martin: I’m keeping slim thanks to the Bruce Springsteen diet

Chris Martin has revealed that he no longer eats dinner so he can look as good as Bruce Springsteen, who does the same.

The Coldplay frontman said he noticed Springsteen, 73, was “more in shape” than him when they met up for lunch in Philadelphia last year.

During the meal, Patti Scialfa, Springsteen’s wife, revealed that The Boss eats only one meal a day to maintain his lean physique.

Martin, 46, made the admission while speaking to Conan O’Brien for his comedy podcast, Conan O’Brien Needs A Friend.

Asked by O’Brien what advice he had been given by fellow musicians over dinner or while socialising, Martin replied: “Funnily enough, I don’t actually have dinner any more.”

“I stop eating at four [pm], and I learned that from having lunch with Bruce Springsteen.”

He went on to relate the anecdote, telling O’Brien: “I was lucky enough to go over there to 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.’”

He added: “And Patti said ‘oh he’s only eating one meal a day’. So I was like, ‘Well, there we go. That’s my next challenge’.”

The British music star did not disclose what his regular meal consists of, but joked that Springsteen’s was “flank of buffalo with a steroid sauce”.

Springsteen, who released his debut album in 1973, has shown no signs of slowing down.

The rocker released his 21st studio album, “Only the Strong Survive,” last year and will be touring Europe from next month.

However, Martin’s diet provoked a backlash among some listeners, who branded the singer’s intermittent fasting habits unhealthy.

Some drew a link with his ex-wife Gwyneth Paltrow, 50, who stirred controversy recently for her own diet regimen.

The actress turned wellness guru later hit back, telling Instagram followers that her routine was based on “medical results and extensive testing” and not “meant to be advice for anyone else”.

Martin discussed the surreal feeling of socialising with music icons while appearing on O’Brien’s podcast, recalling a chat with his “hero” Beyonce after the Grammys recently.

“I was like ‘I have a knee problem from stage’ and she was like ‘yeah, me too’,” he told him.

“You have the same work complaints that nobody else can talk about.”

“Complaints that anyone else in the world would say, ‘go f— yourself’.”
