Madonna and Gwyneth Paltrow have elevated detox diets and cleanses to celebrity status. Now Victoria Beckham is coming clean about her own fondness for this approach as she forces her famous husband David to join her, reported the Belfast Telegraph recently.

Victoria wants her husband to maintain his model-magnificent body since ending his soccer focus. After David gained 10 pounds, Victoria decided it was time to put her own weight loss detox juice concoction into action. It consists of "lemon, ginger and cayenne pepper juice. She is also making him eat diet staples - strawberry salads and strawberry smoothies," a source told British magazine Now.

In addition, she allows him to eat sushi for dinner but bans the beer. Breakfast consists of chopped fruit.

As for their children? She says that they "love sushi:" Click here for the details.

"She realizes that if he wants to keep up modelling he has to become lean again. He recently got into cooking huge Italian pastas and Vic is telling him to ease up," the insider added.

And Victoria walks her talk - as well as spinning it. She's into the spin cycling classes taught at SoulCycle. David likes it so much that he takes his son.

But Victoria has recently acquired a new passion for achieving perfection: Raw honey combined with herbs and superfoods, according to Harper's Bazaar.

Victoria tweeted "my new thing!! Eat one tsp a day!!" with a photo of Virgin Raw Food's Bee Panacea. The "panacea" is a mixture of 20 superfoods such as spirulina, herbs such as cinnamon, bee pollen and raw royal honey.

Before you scoff, New York City registered dietician Lauren Slayton thinks the mixture has potential for weight loss.

"I'm the first one to point out when a product is all hype, but bee panacea might actually help when it comes to losing weight," she said. "Cinnamon aids blood sugar regulation, cayenne is a metabolism booster and bee pollen contains the amino acid phenylalanine that regulates appetite."

One teaspoon has 25 calories, and Slayton recommends limiting yourself to one serving.
