How exactly Elle gets *that* body

Elle Macpherson talks to The Coveteur about the one drink she must have every day and how exactly she gets that body. 

Her definition of wellness:

“My definition of wellness is a holistic approach: A happy, healthy, thoughtful approach to a full life.”

The one thing she needs to have every day:

“My SUPER ELIXIR Alkalising Formula in 500ml of spring water in my hydrator bottle. I have it every day without fail, mixed with coconut water or plain iced water. It has helped me feel nourished from the inside out—my energy levels, sleep patterns and my skin. I love when my skin looks healthy because it is healthy, not because I’ve put something on the outside.”

Her morning routine (which includes lots of H2O):

“[Conscious deep breathing]. 3 breaths in, hold, then out. I drink 500ml of room temperature water. Smile.

I then drink 500ml of water and lemon juice, get dressed, wake up my boys for school and make a healthy breakfast. I mix another 500ml of water and ice or coconut water with my SUPER ELIXIR Alkalising Formula and take it with me when I take the boys to school.”

How she stays fit with moderation:

“I love sports. I don’t believe in fad diets or excessive exercise plans. I keep it simple, so it’s easier to stick to. 45 minutes of sports a day; 45 minutes of quiet time a day. I love swimming, paddle boarding, running, skiing (snow or water), surfing, hiking, spinning… I try lots of new things. I did a hip-hop class the other day—I was so out of rhythm but I laughed a lot.”

On staying healthy while on the road:

THE SUPER ELIXIR Alkalising Formula Travel Sets are great for jet lag, and THE SUPER ELIXIR Nourishing Protein Travel Sets for clean, plant-based nourishment. Easy and efficient. I maintain my meditation program and drink 3 liters of water a day. I also take time to explore and enjoy where I am; take photographs, record, write, observe, appreciate.”

How her opinion of your body changed throughout the years:

“I realize that beauty is a state of heart. It’s not defined by measurements, numbers on a scale, or clothing size. I am most beautiful when I feel strong, healthy, relaxed, and at peace—it’s then reflected in my face and body. Our bodies change, how I deal with the change is directly correlated to how beautiful I look.”
