Usher 'fasts every Wednesday'

"I fast, not for religious purposes, but it's something my grandmother practised," the 45-year-old star said in an interview with WSJ magazine. "I fast on Wednesdays. I typically try to start around 11pm the previous day, then go the entire day on Wednesday just drinking water." On the days he does eat and drink, the singer likes to start the day with "a concoction of lemon, ginger, water and cayenne pepper. I drink it hot," he said. He also revealed that he never eats before he's moved his body.
