So what does Victoria Beckham REALLY eat? As star, 50, claims 'life's too short for calorie counting' a look at the 'disciplined' diet she's consumed every day for 25 years - much to her husband David's annoyance!

Victoria Beckham shocked fans this week when she declared that she 'no longer cares' what anyone thinks about her body and life is 'too short' to count calories.

The 50-year-old designer has a famously limited diet but insisted in a recent chat with Grazia magazine that she wouldn't go as far as to give up her beloved wine and she just wants to 'have a nice time'.

She did, however, admit her diet was 'disciplined', stating: 'This is how I look. I’m going to make the best of it, work hard at it.

'I’m very disciplined with the way that I eat, the way that I work out and the way I work. That’s just who I am.'

It perhaps undersells her extreme eating habits, with her husband David previously revealing that Victoria has eaten the same meal every single day for 25 years - grilled fish and steamed vegetables.

'I get quite emotional about food and wine, when I'm eating something great I want everyone to try it,' he said.

'Unfortunately I'm married to someone that has eaten the same thing for the last 25 years!

'Since I met her she only eats grilled fish [and] steamed vegetables. She will very rarely deviate from that.

'The only time she's probably ever shared something that's been on my plate was actually when she was pregnant with Harper and it was the most amazing thing.

'It was one of my favourite evenings. I can't remember what it was but I know she's not eaten it since.'

In July, Victoria responded to this confession, telling Vogue Australia her husband made her tastes 'sound boring' when in fact she fills her diet with 'healthy fat' and regularly does detoxes where she abstains from drinking alcohol.

She said: 'I mean, talk about making me sound boring! No. What he meant is that he's never met anyone who is more disciplined with the way that they eat.

'I eat lots of healthy fat: fish, avocado, nuts, that sort of thing. I do drink alcohol, unless I have a reason not to.

'I'll detox from anything for three to six months where I won't drink. I'm quite extreme in anything I do, whether it's eating or working out or drinking or not drinking.'

Victoria admitted her diet was 'disciplined', stating: 'I¿m very disciplined with the way that I eat, the way that I work out and the way I work. That¿s just who I am'

Victoria's extreme diet has hit the headlines over the years, with Rio Ferdinand also  giving an insight into her eating habits.

The retired English footballer, 44, is friends with Victoria's husband David after playing football together at the World Cup and would sometimes dine with the couple during training.

While speaking to Australian radio show Kyle and Jackie O, host Jackie 'O' Henderson admitted she was 'obsessed' with Victoria's diet.

Rio responded: 'I've never seen her eat anything. I don't remember anything that sticks out of my memory, to be honest.'

But this isn't the first time that Victoria's diet has been talked about with the the fashion designer becoming notorious for being a picky eater.

Chef Gordon Ramsay offered more information about her 'disciplined' tastes in 2011, when Victoria was pregnant with daughter Harper.

Clearly not allowing any pregnancy cravings to allow her to deviate from her strict diet, Gordon recalled she asked for the smoked trout salad and asked for it plain with the dressing on the side.

According to the menu, the dish is normally served with grapefruit, avocado, red onion and lemon, but Victoria requested these be taken off.

Fellow famed chef Dani Garcia, also spoke about her food choices, detailing her 'odd' dinner demands when she attended Sergio Ramos' wedding in 2019.

Dani recalled how Victoria had coconut water by her 'all of the time' as well as bowls of mints, as he branded the habits 'odd' in an interview.

Touching on what it was like to cook for the designer at the June 2019 wedding banquet near Seville, Dani said on Spanish TV: 'It was very strange. Victoria Beckham changed the whole menu.

'It was very sad because when you make such an effort, not just me and my team but the bride and groom and everyone else to create a unique menu.

'Hers was totally different and just based around vegetables. And then there were some odd things that I've never seen in my life.

'She had coconut water, all the time, a bowl of mints and then on the other side hydroalcoholic gel which is very famous now but back then wasn't because the Covid pandemic hadn't started.

'It was complicated giving Victoria her menu that night.'

Disputing Dani's version of events, a source close to Victoria said: 'This makes a great story but isn’t fair or accurate – the most Victoria would have done when asked about dietary requirements is ask for some plain fish and vegetables.'

Victoria's 'odd' eating habits have been the subject of intense scrutiny for years.

During the Euros in 2004, she reportedly stuck to a diet of strawberries washed down with mineral water.

The mother-of-four has previously revealed she won't eat food cooked in oil, butter or sauces and doesn't eat red meat or dairy.

The Spice Girl she said her comfort food was whole grain toast with salt on it and admitted: 'To most restaurants I'm probably their worst nightmare.'

She has also revealed a go to snack for her was healthy seeds which she also makes for her kids, sharing a photo with the caption: 'Seeds doused in organic Aminos! Grilled until crispy! After school snack! Good for mummy too!'

She told The Telegraph in 2019 she 'eats three or four avocados a day' and she credits them for keeping her skin healthy.

Victoria also swapped out traditional spaghetti for spice prawn courgetti and vegetables.

Speaking to the same River Cafés Table 4 podcast, the designer said: 'To most restaurants I'm probably their worst nightmare. I love some steamed vegetables, some balsamic vinegar and then to season myself.

'I like things to be cooked in a very simple way. I don't like oils or butters or sauces. This is where I sound even more boring in the food department.'

Victoria also confessed her comfort food was a piece of whole grain toast with salt on it and on her birthday she celebrates with a fruit cake, or more specifically, a watermelon carved into the shape of a cake.

Daughter Harper helped her mum stick to her extreme diet, by cooking for her in lockdown. She prepared a meal of salmon, prawns, sugar snap peas, cucumber, avocado and broccoli.

Victoria prefers a liquid breakfast, telling Net-A-Porter: 'Each morning, the first thing I do is have three tablespoons of apple cider vinegar, followed by a mug of hot water and lemon and multiple coffees.'

She does not even allow herself to indulge on her birthday, celebrating her 44th with a birthday cake made entirely of watermelon and decorated with just strawberries and blueberries.

No matter the occasion, she sticks to fish and vegetables, showing a picture of her lunch side by side with son Romeo's in 2021.

While Romeo enjoyed a delicious looking ham pizza, Victoria opted for two pieces of plain salmon and a whole avocado.

The star is aware of the scrutiny around her diet, and has often poked fun at it in the past.

In 2022, she finally joined TikTok with a hilarious video, where she invited her fans to 'tell me you are posh without telling me you are posh'.

She sat at a table in front of a white cloche, before a waiter lifted it to reveal the Spice Girl's famous dinner of grilled fish and steamed vegetables.

'I love it', she proclaimed in the hilarious video, as she mocked herself.

Speaking this week, Victoria confessed that body insecurities once stopped her 'watching her children play on the beach'.

She told the publication: 'I never want to look like I’m complaining, but there were times in the past that I haven’t felt confident enough to sit on a beach and watch my children play.'

Victoria went onto say negative comments 'don't bother her now' and she has become 'more accepting' of the way she looks.

In 1999, just two months after welcoming her son Brooklyn, Victoria was forced to weigh herself live on television.

The extraordinary incident happened on Chris Evans's Channel 4 show TFI Friday and Victoria has since slammed the presenter for forcing her to take part.

Chris told her: 'A lot of girls want to know, because you look fantastic again, how did you get back to your shape after birth?'

After replying that she was actually really lazy and hadn't been to the gym at all, the host wouldn't let up, demanding: 'Is your weight back to normal?'

When she said it was, he persisted: 'Can I check, do you mind?' before getting her to step on to some scales and remarking: 'Eight stone's not bad at all, is it?'

Victoria revealed she hasn't always been comfortable with her body and said 'I haven¿t felt confident enough to sit on a beach and watch my children play' (pictured with Brooklyn in the Noughties)

The fashion designer has since said: 'I went on a TV show with Chris Evans many years ago and I'd just had Brooklyn and lost a lot of weight after.

'It happened to my mum after her pregnancies. It doesn't mean you have an eating disorder. And he made me stand on the scales to be weighed. Can you imagine doing that nowadays?'

In her Grazia chat, the Spice Girl singer explained that she is 'disciplined' with her diet though and works out regularly but 'life is too short' for calorie counting.

She shared: 'This is how I look. I’m going to make the best of it, work hard at it. I’m very disciplined with the way that I eat, the way that I work out and the way I work. That’s just who I am.

'But I do like to have a drink and I’m not going to be one these, “Ah, there are too many calories in a glass of wine” types. Whatever. Life’s too short. Let’s have a nice time.’
