Why eat barely anything when you can eat nothing at all?
That seems to be the question Chris Martin is essentially asking his ex-wife right now via an oddly complementary podcast interview! And let’s just say off the top that we don’t really want to follow either one of their diets. LOLz!

Of course, early last week we covered the saga of Gwyneth Paltrow‘s daily diet reveal. The Goop founder popped up on the Art of Being Well podcast last Monday and revealed she is in the habit of eating almost nothing all day, apart from a hearty lunch of bone broth — which she then burns off with a workout and sauna. LOLz! Seriously, it was a wild segment to hear, and it caught the attention of a LOT of social media users. She later said it wasn’t intended as advice — but considering her position as a WELLNESS COMPANY CEO, it’s hard to ignore.
Now, a week later, her ex is at it with his own reveal! The Coldplay frontman sat down with former late night television host Conan O’Brien for a new episode of his eponymous Conan O’Brien Needs A Friend podcast.
The duo covered a lot of ground regarding Martin’s long career in the public eye along with his musical influences, thoughts, and theories. And they also talked food!! It wasn’t specifically in response to Paltrow’s prior comments, but Conan and Chris dished on dinner dishes all the same.
Speaking about fame, the late night vet asked Martin about how surreal it is to hang out and have dinner with some of the men and women he grew up idolizing. But Chris cut him off right there — because he doesn’t have dinner, you see!
The 46-year-old singer revealed rock idol Bruce Springsteen actually convinced him of it:
“I don’t actually have dinner anymore. I stop eating at 4, and I learned that from having lunch with Bruce Springsteen. That’s really true.”
OMG! Here we go again with the crazy diet rules!!! Chris explained how he was having lunch with Bruce and his wife Patti Scialfa one day last year when the Boss’ impeccable health at 73 years old intrigued him:
“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, anyways, but I was like, ‘Bruce looks even more in shape than me.’ And Patti said, ‘well, he’s only eating one meal a day.’ Well, there we go. That’s my next challenge.”
One meal a day?! Talk about immense self-control. We prefer grazing, thanks. Ha!
Conan joked about that, too. The former late-night host quipped that Bruce’s one meal probably consists of an entire buffalo — to which Martin joked right back:
“Today, we have flank of buffalo with a steroid sauce.”
LOLz! That’d be the only way to make it work for us. Just saying!! You can watch that whole exchange in the podcast clip (below):
Well, to each his or her own, we suppose.
Remember, this comes on the heels of Gwyneth’s reveal about fasting until noon every day, eating bone broth for lunch, exercising it off (?!) and then keeping her “paleo” dinner very limited to “lots of vegetables.”
At the time, critics online SLAMMED her for the meal plan. It got so intense, Gwyneth actually fired back late last week! Chris’ “one meal a day” comments this week aren’t taking that same level of heat from fans, however. Should they be tho??

TBH, we just want to know if the X&Y crooner has any other health reveals he’d like to share. You know, in the spirit of his ex-wife being so frank and about her wellness goals and all. So, Chris, have you ever put anything in your butt in the name of good health?!
What?? We’re just asking!!
Anyways, here’s a bonus Chris-on-Conan segment in which the Coldplay lead reveals a cool story about using new tech to share the group’s music with hearing-impaired fans:
But what do U make of these exes dishing on dishes, Perezcious readers??
