She Eats Healthy
Beckham says that she makes sure to eat a healthy diet, and actually loves healthier food. "I enjoy eating healthily," she told The Times. "And I'm in the fortunate position where it's easy for me. I can afford to eat well." Beckham says that her diet helps her get through her days. "I expect a lot from my body," she said. "And I'm never sick. You have to be kind to your body if you expect a lot from it."
She Starts Her Day With Apple Cider Vinegar and Lemon Water
Beckham, like many other celebrities, likes to start their days with lemon water, and she also likes to drink apple cider vinegar as well. "First thing I do every morning is… 2 tsp of Apple Cider Vinegar," Beckham revealed on her Instagram story. "Followed by… fresh lemon squeezed into boiling water." Keep a stack of lemons in your kitchen handy at all times. Not only do they offer a great finishing touch for just about any dish you're cooking, but they're also perfect for adding a healthful twist and injecting a more interesting taste into your agua as you make the transition to making the flavorless water a bigger cornerstone of your days.
She Loves Fish
Beckham tells The Sun that she loves fish, and makes sure to eat a lot of it. Beckham says that she decided to eat more fish after speaking to dermatologist Harold Lancer. "I used to have really problematic skin and he said, 'You have to eat salmon every single day'," she says. "I've known him for years, he sorted my skin out." Fish like salmon are a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, which are known to decrease the inflammation that might be contributing to your muscle and joint pain.
