Elle Macpherson, 52: 'I eat organic food where possible and eat a mostly plant-based' diet 2

On her healthy living experience:

At 52, I now know that a healthy mind and body is a balance of nutrition, exercise, intuition, experience and love, I really believe that,’ she tells the magazine. I’m less concerned about the number on the scales or what dress size I wear now compared to when I was younger. Today I believe beauty comes from the inside and I’ve definitely become more mindful in that sense – meditation has become a huge part of my day-to-day life.

On her supermodel workout regimen:

[It’s] ideal if I’m in a different country as I can explore the area while being active. If I’m at home I love to walk the dog, run on the beach, go swimming, hike with the kids or cycle around the neighbourhood.

On the best healthy living tip she’s heard:

The best piece of advice I’ve been given is: “Your inner strength will come from balance, trust, intuition, experience and love.”

On whether she is strict when it comes to her diet and supermodel workout regimen:

It’s really important for me to not be super strict – my life isn’t governed by rules, it is about balance. I don’t believe in extreme diets. I eat organic food where possible and eat a mostly plant-based diet – which means lots of leafy greens, salad, fruit and vegetables and clean hormone-free protein. I think it’s important to have something warm in the body as the first meal so for breakfast I’ll have some oatmeal or muesli with an apple compote or some berries warmed through.

… says 52 year-old Elle.

Miranda Kerr Talks Heathy Eating

On healthy eating:

“I grew up learning the benefits first-hand from my grandmother. She had a vegetable patch at the back of her house and she would teach me how to cook — all very simple but wholesome. Learning the benefits of eating organic food and the nutrient value was ingrained into me, then it was something that I wanted to learn more about because for my job I need to feel my best so that I can give my best.”

On how she started working out:

“I love the science of the body, and I love to give information and see people utilize it in their own lives. I want women to know that it’s never too late to start paying attention to their bodies. Until I started training at 27 for ‘Charlie’s Angels,’ I didn’t. I literally quit smoking a month before. I was, like, ‘Ugh, I’ve got to do this training. I guess I should stop smoking now.’ We trained eight hours a day, seven days a week for three months, and I was dying. Crying every day. On Monday, I wondered how am I ever going to do this, but soon enough, I had a six-pack. At 27, I wasn’t consciously saying, ‘I’m doing this for when I’m 41.’ But at 41, I’m saying, ‘Thank God I started at 27.'”
