Chris Martin revealed that he only eats one meal a day and skips dinner entirely — news that comes after his ex-wife Gwyneth Paltrow was slammed for her own seemingly sparse diet.

Sitting down with Conan O'Brien for his Conan Needs a Friend podcast, Martin revealed that his single-meal-per-day diet was inspired by Bruce Springsteen.

"I was on a really strict diet anyway, but I was like, ‘Bruce looks even more in shape than me,’ and [his wife] Patti [Scialfa] said, ‘He’s only eating one meal a day,' so I was like, ‘Well, here we go, that’s my next challenge,'" Martin explained.

When O'Brien joked that the singular meal might be an "8-foot submarine [sandwich]," Martin quipped he eats a "flank of buffalo with a steroid sauce."

"Not the almond dad," one TikTok user wrote.

"Wow, fun times when he and Gwyneth were together," another commented.
