Who: Victoria Beckham, Madonna and Gwyneth Paltrow
What: "I love Japanese food," says Victoria Beckham of her super-healthy, energy-boosting Japanese-style diet. "[I eat] lots of fish, any sort of fish, any sort of vegetable, lots of fruit … that kind of thing."
But the so-called Japanese diet that Posh credits for her super-slim frame and endless bounds of energy (the mum-of-three somehow fits in the odd bout of singing, acting, fashion designing and socialising!) isn't just about scoffing down sushi and sashimi. The diet is about adopting a clean-living lifestyle that blends healthy, well-prepared food, regular exercise and spirituality.
The diet encourages followers to only eat until they're 80 percent full in other words, keep portions small and eat slowly and to be smarter and more conscious of food choices. The secret is to replace energy-dense foods (food that contains more kilojoules per gram), such as chocolate, with foods that are less energy-dense, such as fruits and vegetables.
Slurping a glass of seaweed is also on Posh's energy-boosting menu. Macrobiotic pals Madonna and Gwyneth Paltrow also chow down on the green stuff, praising it for its anti-oxidant benefits, vitamins B1 and B2 and its high levels of iron.
Of course, these super healthy superstars aren't always good, with even Victoria admitting she gives in to her sweet tooth once in a while. "Now and again I go out and eat what I like," she says. "But I do like to be quite disciplined in the way that I eat."
