She hits back at husband David’s revelation that she rarely deviates from a dinner of grilled fish and steamed vegetables, quipping:
‘Talk about making me sound boring!. No. What he meant is that he’s never met anyone who’s 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.’
It’s revealed she doesn’t let a day go past without drinking apple cider vinegar first thing in the morning, and adding Skinaide collagen peptide powder in her coffee.
She also indulges in the latest beauty treatments including radio frequency and Collagenwaves as well as an ‘eye-burning treatment where they burn the underneath of your eye… it forces the body to produce collagen and repair itself.’
Victoria’s daily routine revelations come after she came under fire from the famous Spanish chef last week for causing him grief at a celebrity wedding with her ‘complicated’ dinner demands.

Three Michelin star chef Dani Garcia, 46, claimed the Spice Girl had ‘changed the whole menu’ when former Real Madrid star Sergio Ramos tied the knot with his model and TV presenter wife Pilar Rubio in Spain 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 a new interview.
Touching on what it was like to cook for the fashion designer at the June 2019 wedding banquet near Seville, Dani said on Spanish TV on Monday night: ‘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 husband David previously told how she has eaten a meal of steamed fish and vegetables for the last 25 years and will ‘rarely deviate’ from this menu.
Discussing Victoria’s very specific eating habits on the River Cafe Table 4 podcast, David explained: ‘I get quite emotional about food and wine, when I’m eating something great I want everyone to try it.
‘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, 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.’
Victoria’s ‘odd’ eating habits have been the subject of intense scrutiny for years.
During Euro 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.
Last year she said her comfort food was whole grain toast with salt on it and admitted: ‘To most restaurants I’m probably their worst nightmare.’
