When a radio pulsar breakes down by virtue of magnetodipole emission, its gravitational mass decreases accordingly. If the pulsar in hosted in a binary system, this mass loss will increase the orbital period of the system. We show that this relativistic effect can be indeed observable if the NS is fast and magnetized enough and that, if observed, it will help to put tight constraints on the equation of state of ultradense matter.
