Victoria Beckham defended her strict diet in a new interview with Vogue Australia, after her husband David said earlier this year that she only eats fish and vegetables.

"Talk about making me sound boring!" the former member of the Spice Girls said in the interview, according to Huffington Post UK. "What he meant is that he's never met anyone who's more disciplined with the way that they eat."

According to Beckham, she "eats lots of healthy fat: fish, avocado, nuts, that sort of thing," and also regularly drinks alcohol, unless she has a "reason not to."

"I'm quite extreme in anything I do, whether it's eating or working out or drinking or not drinking," the fashion designer revealed.

Beckham also told Vogue Australia that her workout routine consists of Pilates, uphill runs on a treadmill, and intense weight sessions, per Huffington Post UK.

In February, David spoke about his wife's eating habits during an appearance on iHeart's "River Cafe Table 4" podcast.

"I get quite emotional about food and wine. When I'm eating something great, I want everyone to try it," the 46-year-old former athlete told chef Ruthie Rogers.

He continued: "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."

According to David, his wife has only deviated from her preferred meal on one occasion that he can remember.

"The only time she's ever probably shared something that's been on my plate was actually when she was pregnant with Harper, and it was the most amazing thing," he recalled. "It was one of my favorite evenings. I can't remember what it was, but I know she's not eaten it since."

The couple first met in 1997, when David was playing for Manchester United, and Victoria was a member of the Spice Girls. They got married in 1999, and have four children together: Brooklyn, 23; Romeo, 19; Cruz , 17; and Harper, 10.
