A self-proclaimed foodie, David Beckham admitted that he was somewhat frustrated because Victoria maintains a strict eating regime. The ex-footballer spills the beans!

David and Victoria Beckham are used to living their lives under the microscope. Fans have recently enjoyed the documentary on David Beckham and his football career as well as his relationship with Victoria. The fashion designer and ex-singer has fascinated the public for 25 years, since she shot to fame as one of the Spice Girls. She is known for her slim physique and claims her secret to fitness is to vary the exercise she does every day. The former midfielder announced his love of food when he was a guest on Ruthie’s Table 4 podcast, which discusses celebrities’ food memories and how food impacts every part of our lives.

Steamed fish and vegetables every day for two decades for Victoria Beckham

When it comes to gastronomy, the Beckhams have radically different habits. The 48-year-old ex-footballer admitted that he had never shared the same dish as his other half since they first met, back in 1997. But even more surprising, he revealed that Victoria would force herself to eat the same meal. So every day, she would settle for a super-light meal, consisting simply of grilled fish and steamed vegetables. Nothing else. Enough to completely frustrate her husband, who is a lover of good food.

One “deviation” in ten years

“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 Victoria, she only eats grilled fish, steamed vegetables, she will very rarely deviate away from there.”

David remembers only one time when Victoria has deviated from her normal meal and tried something on his plate. It was “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.”
