Chris Martin Only Eats One Meal a Day Because He Wants to Look Like Bruce Springsteen

“I actually don’t have dinner anymore. I stop eating at 4 and I learned that from having lunch with Bruce Springsteen,” Martin said. “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.’”

It should go without saying, but this is very dumb. For one, it obviously hasn’t yielded the desired effect. Martin is nowhere near as jacked as Springsteen. That’s probably because every body is different, and what works for one person doesn’t necessarily work for another; you’ve got to factor in things like age, lifestyle, metabolism, any other underlying health issues.

There’s also the fact that science has proven that intermittent fasting and other time-restricted diets don’t actually provide any more benefits than eating a regular, healthy diet throughout the day.

He’s obviously not responsible for what other people eat or don’t eat, but it’s hard to ignore the fact that this comes on the heels of his ex-wife Gwyneth Paltrow catching heat for her extremely restrictive diet — which seems to mostly consist of bone broth and vegetables.
