‘I keep my eye on what I eat all the time, because now that we’re older we have to make a conscious decision if we want to stay relatively slim… But as you get older, it doesn’t actually look that attractive to be super skinny.’
Hot 45 year-old actress Elizabeth Hurley has something to share:
“I realized I’d got into a terrible habit of wolfing my food – hardly chewing at all. I really try to chew everything now and it’s made a massive difference to my digestion and I think it makes you eat less. I’m also trying not to eat so late at night, which again helps your digestion.”
“I put myself under pressure to remain slim because I still model my own bikinis and I’ve lost about 8lbs in the last few months.The first thing most people ask me when they meet me is, ‘How do you stay slim?’ My organic snack bars are one of my secrets. They’re under 100 calories and help me resist crisps and chocolate.”
Salma Hayek (43) & Elizabeth Hurley (45) Â looked pretty busty in cleavagey dresses at 2 recent events this week: Salma wore a strapless white number with red accessories at “Grown Ups” premiere in New York and Elizabeth showed off her upper curves (as always) atÂ Â Royal Rajasthan Gala Charity Auction Dinner.
Her perfectly toned body is the envy of every yummy-mummy.
But at the age of 44, Liz Hurley has confessed how she has been forced to adopt a more extreme dietary plan to keep her famously svelte figure.
Miss Hurley has revealed how she has had to cut out coffee and wine from her diet. Now, instead of enjoying a glass of claret when she is at a social gathering, the model and actress has turned to vodka to keep her midriff trim.
Asked whether she missed wine, she said: â€˜No, I don’t miss having a glass of wine because I’ve switched to vodka. I don’t really like vodka that much but if I’m at a party I have a small one with a lot of fizzy water and a huge squeeze of lime. Initially it’s like medicine but I’ve got used to it now.’
Miss Hurley, who lives in Gloucestershire-with husband Arun Nayar and her seven-year-old son Damian, admitted: â€˜I used to drink an awful lot of coffee, but I was told after the age of 40 you have to be careful with coffee and wine. Apparently, that can be one of the reasons older women get bloated around their stomach.’
With her acting career sidelined, Miss Hurley has instead concentrated on her swimwear range and modeling.
Following the birth of Damian, she revealed how she only eats one meal a day and often goes to bed hungry. It was also reported last year that she has just one square of organic chocolate or one tablespoonful of ice-cream when she wants a treat.
Her exact words:
“The only meal I have is dinner.”I’m on a good old-fashioned low calorie diet – I’m going to bed hungry.”
That sounds a little very drastic. She is slim and toned and certainly not too skinny, I don’t see any reason why she wouldn’t be able to maintain this figure with 3 balanced meals per day.
