Victoria Beckham is reportedly eager for David to stay in shape and is helping him with his diet plan.
The buff ex-soccer star quit the sport last year, and has since been focusing on his modelling and charity work.
He's also been hanging out with friends more, and was recently spotted having a drink with Tom Cruise in a London pub. But the lack of exercise has apparently meant a 10lb weight gain for David, and Victoria is said to be enforcing a healthier diet plan on him.
"Victoria is pushing one of her favourite weight-loss tonics on David - lemon, ginger and cayenne pepper juice. She is also making him eat diet staples - strawberry salads and strawberry smoothies," a source revealed to British magazine Now.
Victoria is said to be mindful of the fact 39-year-old David needs to stay in peak physical shape to keep landing modelling gigs.
New diet rules are said to include chopped fruit for breakfast, sushi for dinner and a ban on beer.
"She realises 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.
Victoria, 40, is said to be strict with her own diet and is also an avid exercise fan, favouring SoulCycle, the latest fitness craze to sweep Hollywood.
David is also thought to be a fan too, with the spinning-like work outs designed to feel less like exercise and more like a powerful, spiritual experience. Sessions incorporate lit candles and motivational music.
"David loves it so much he even takes [son] Brooklyn," the source said.
