Chris Martin Is No Longer Vegetarian After Gwyneth Paltrow Split

It's safe to say Chris Martin is going through some big changes in his life since splitting with Gwyneth Paltrow in March.
During a recent interview with BBC Radio 2's Steve Wright in the Afternoon, Martin, 37, admitted that he's no longer a vegetarian post-Paltrow split.
"I am not really vegetarian. I eat meat. I was vegetarian for a long time but, for various reasons, I changed," he surprisingly shared. "My daughter's vegetarian since she was born, so I keep getting tempted to go back. I don't eat very much meat."
"The honest answer why I changed is because I thought you can only eat something that you should be able to kill," he further explained. "I mean, could you kill a fish? I wouldn't like it, but I probably could eat the fish. But a giraffe ... "
Paltrow, 41, is famously strict with her diet, and told The Observer in 2013 that she hasn't eaten red meat in two decades -- and that she was actually inspired to do so by Leonardo DiCaprio.
"He was vegetarian and he'd talk about how dirty meat is and how bad factory farming is. I haven't eaten red meat in 20 years and although Leo's not totally responsible he definitely planted a seed," she said. "When I turned seriously macrobiotic, it coincided with my father having been diagnosed with cancer [in 1999]. I felt I could heal him by proxy."
This isn't the first time Martin's eating habits post-split have had people talking.
In May, Martin made headlines when he reportedly took their children -- Apple, 10, and Moses, 8 -- to a Los Angeles fast food restaurant despite their low-carb, gluten-free diet Paltrow talked about in her cookbook It's All Good.
