I’m going to let you guys in on a little secret. I’ve been a Spice Girls fan since the 90s. Their music is KILLER and their styles set them apart from just about every other pop group out there.
While they’re all amazing dancers and incredible vocalists, I always found Posh aka Victoria to be my favourite.
Let’s see how she does it.
THE VICTORIA BECKHAM DIET
Victoria Beckham is an Ectomorph body type. This means she’s naturally thin and lean. But even though she could be a bit more relaxed with her diet and get away with eating more junk food than an average person she still focuses on eating nutrient-dense foods for every meal.
Before Victoria starts eating anything, she jumpstarts her day with an apple cider vinegar beverage. She takes two tablespoons of vinegar to help her gut health up and give it a little extra help in digesting things for the rest of the day.
After the vinegar does its job, she typically makes one of her signature power breakfasts.
Her favourite is a green smoothie that’s full of chopped apple, lemon, and kiwi for sweetness. Then she piles on the greens with spinach and broccoli. She also adds chia seeds for added fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, and antioxidants.
The fruit typically gives enough sweetness to the smoothie to make it delicious, even for her kids.
If she’s looking for something a little more substantial or warm in the winter, she’ll make a sprouted grain bowl. Her base changes depending on what she finds at the store, but her
Victoria’s schedule is almost always packed during the week. This means her lunches are often eaten on-the-run or at work.
She likes to have sushi when she can, but if she’s in a rush, she’ll also pick up a green juice or smoothie between appointments.
On those rare days when she has time to sit down and relax for a few minutes, Victoria likes to indulge in tons of fresh veg. Her favourite lunch is a large salad topped with grilled or smoked salmon.
Her dressings of choice are typically light, relying on vinegar and spices rather than infused oils or cream-based concoctions.
Her dinners tend to change especially since she’s not the one responsible for cooking them. She leaves that to her husband and former soccer star, David Beckham.
Regardless of what the dishes are, they always eat healthy and if they decide to go out for dinner, they’ll almost always head to a sushi restaurant.
The key to the Victoria Beckham diet is hydration. No matter what she’s eating or how hard she’s working out, she’s careful to get enough fluids throughout the day.
Her go-to beverage during work hours is sparkling water. If she wants to jazz it up, she’ll add a bit of lemon or lime juice to the mix. When she wants something a bit different, she’ll grab a green tea.
She’s also a fan of coffee and will use it as an afternoon pick-me-up. She takes it black, helping her get all those health benefits from the drink, and adds her own

VICTORIA BECKHAM’S WORKOUT ROUTINE
Though Victoria is an Ectomorph and naturally keeps the weight off at least to some degree, she’s dedicated to working out regularly. In fact, she often does multiple workouts every day.
Her typical routine starts at 6 in the morning before the rest of the family is awake. She’ll hop on the treadmill for about an hour and typically runs between 5 and 7 km every day.
Running helps her stay lean and
She then takes care of her morning routine and makes sure the family is set for the day.
HER ROUTINES CHANGE
Running is a daily must for Victoria, but that doesn’t mean she won’t’ change things up throughout the week.
She’s a big fan of SoulCycle and Barry’s Bootcamp which
She also likes to work out with a personal trainer when she can. Those one-on-one sessions help her focus on strengthening the muscle groups she’s most concerned about at the time.
Even better, they help maximize her performance in other exercise classes so she can get more out of them and reduce her risk of injuries.
VICTORIA’S TYPICAL STRENGTH TRAINING ROUTINE
When it comes to strength training, Victoria keeps things fairly consistent. This is what allows her to make improvements and keep her body in optimal condition.
She breaks her strength workouts into two halves. First, she does 30 minutes working on her legs and lower body. Then, she spends another 30 minutes focusing on her arms and strengthening her core.
Victoria loves doing planks and static ab exercises to supercharge her core. But she also incorporates tons of dance moves into her workouts which makes working out more fun for her.
HIIT ON THE WEEKENDS
Victoria works out at least six days a week. And on the weekends, she likes to combine her strength training and cardio workouts into one. That’s right…we’re talking about high-intensity interval training!
It’s definitely one of my favourite ways to start getting results fast. You don’t even need gym equipment to do it, making it perfect for sneaking a workout in on a work trip.

VICTORIA IS INSANELY DEDICATED
Let’s be honest…the Victoria Beckham diet and workout routine is extreme, even for the hardened athletes. But there are some key things you can take away from what she does that can work for you.
Start prioritizing your workouts and don’t accept those excuses of “I don’t have the time.” Make time for them, get moving, and keep it up.
Ditch the processed foods and stick to healthy nutrient-dense options instead. Just making these changes will help you take control of your health and your look.
