Chris Martin Doesn't Eat for One Full Day Every Week

Chris Martin has revealed some interesting details about his diet – he doesn’t eat anything for one full day every week!

“I fast once a week,” the 38-year-old Coldplay singer told Fresh 102.7.

“I started doing it because I was sick one time, and this guy said to me, ‘Just try not eating for a day because it will make your body feel healthier,’” Chris said. “I did it and then I found I could sing a bit better, and also I felt so grateful for food…and just grateful for everything in a way that I wasn’t so much before.”

“I think that that feeling of gratitude and stuff naturally brings out a joyous feeling, and also when you’re hungry you are very focused, so both sides of it I think help creativity,” he added.

Chris says that it can be a bit difficult to get through the day while fasting.

“If you fast for a while, about 15 hours in, you get a little antsy, so you’ve got to be careful who you’re talking to at that point,” he said. So, what does he do when the fast is over? “Well, you’re supposed to go for something like a kale salad. I tend to have Nutella and pancakes, which is terrible and completely defeats the point.”
