CHRIS Evans says ditching drinks with meals has “changed his life” and helped him lose weight.
The 53-year-old opened up about his unusual diet plan on today’s Virgin Radio Breakfast Show.
Chris explained how he doesn’t drink anything for 45 minutes before or after a meal, and avoids having any liquids while eating as well.
He said: “I’ve been doing this since Saturday and it has changed my life.
“Liquid, particularly water interrupts your digestion.
“45 minutes after a meal you really do want to drink, and if you eat four to five hours apart you drink right in the middle, and so that keeps you full.
“It helps your digestion and you lose weight.”
He added: “We encourage our kids to have a glass of water with dinner but that’s actually the wrong thing to do.”
Chris has already shed some pounds by adopting his new tactic, but listeners couldn’t help but make fun of his new regime.
They got in touch to jokingly ask whether they could still have soup or a pint with their pork scratchings in the pub, leaving Chris’ co-stars in hysterics.

Chris also recorded his wife and older children taking part in his cold shower challenge.
After Olly Murs participated last week, Chris’ sons Eli and Noah managed to stand under the cold water for 60 seconds each.
However wife Natasha wasn’t so keen, but after being cajoled by her brood, she stepped under the water for one minute and completed the challenge.
