It sounds like Chris Martin is consciously uncoupling from Gwyneth Paltrow 's GOOP diet.
The Coldplay singer sat down for an interview with BBC Radio 2 this week and revealed he isn't as strict with his healthy, clean eating these days. When asked if he's still a vegetarian, Martin answered, "Well, not really."
"Well, I eat meat," he explained. "I was vegetarian for quite a long time and then for various reasons I changed. My daughter's vegetarian since she was born, so I keep getting tempted to go back. I don't eat very much meat."
"I felt like you should only eat something that you'd be able to kill," Martin went on. "You know, could you kill a fish? I wouldn't like it, but I probably could, so I'll eat the fish. But a giraffe..."
While Paltrow does eat chicken and duck, she has been vocal about not eating red meat for years.
Meanwhile, Martin also opened up about life post-split . "You can choose your paths in life, I find, when you get to a point where you're like, 'I could either jump off a bridge or I could try and turn this around,'" the single star said. "I'm sure lots of people have that in much harder instances. You just find the right tools."
One of Martin's next gigs is writing the anthem for the opening ceremony of Prince Harry 's upcoming Invictus Games for wounded soldiers.
