David and Victoria Beckham no longer eat meat in new ‘healthy’ diet

It’s Beckham – but without the “ham”.

David and Victoria Beckham have ditched meat, with David struggling through the past three weeks as a veggie, while Posh follows a plant-based diet.

Victoria previously attempted to go vegan, but now mainly eats vegetables and fish, while David is a new adopter of a meat-free diet.

As he munched mango and avocado, smoked watermelon and a stroganoff-style mushroom dish at a wellness centre in Germany this weekend, the former footballer admitted shifting his eating habits “hasn’t been easy”, but adds that he found it “actually enjoyable”.

Meanwhile, Victoria follows a plant based diet, having previously ditched dairy, and has started taking a collagen peptide powder – even though it “smells nasty”.

The couple have been enjoying a “wellness week” at a £7k detox centre in Baden Baden – a German spa town they’re familiar with, after the 2006 World Cup WAG-athon saw Victoria join the likes of Coleen Rooney to watch their husbands played for England.

Now, the pair have checked into Villa Stephanie where a personal chef and nutritional coach have served them healthy, vegetarian meals as part of a programme of “luxury healthcare hospitality”.

A week’s stay at the retreat, which offers oxygen inhalation “ozone therapy”, martial arts exercise Qi Gong sessions and Nordic hiking, starts at £3,430 per person.

They’ll need a proper holiday after all that.
