Los Angeles, March 5: Singer Robbie Williams says he he starves to shed weight. He also likes to busy himself making albums as it distracts him from eating.
The "Candy" hitmaker stayed away from the calorific treats over the Christmas period in a bid to stop the festive bulge, and his new low-calorie diet has stuck with him through to this year as well.
"My secret is not eating. Christmas was just a vast array of chocolate and cake and sugar and carbohydrates," contactmusic.com quoted William as saying.
"I knew I was doing promo in Australia and I did a rather unhealthy thing of not eating. My regime so far year is to have a big breakfast and then two protein shakes for the rest of the day," he added.
The 40-year-old singer admits gorging on tasty snacks is his downfall and he finds that he tends to reach for unhealthy foods when his mind isn't occupied with making music.
