Must read

  • Elizabeth Hurley shared the “simple” diet and fitness tips she follows to feel her best.
  • The 58-year-old is not a fan of jumping on wellness trends that might overcomplicate things.
  • “My tastes are pretty simple,” she said.

At 58, Elizabeth Hurley’s reservoir of youthful energy overflows—so much so that she doesn’t mind sharing the wealth in the form of a few “simple” lifestyle choices that keep her feeling and looking her best.

She recently spilled the secrets to The Sydney Morning Herald. First and foremost, junk food is off the table, literally. “I’ve always watched what I eat, since forever. I’ve never wanted to eat processed food. Right back to my teens, I’ve always looked at the labels on food,” she said. In a January Instagram, she delved deeper into her eating habits, defining junk food as “anything that contains any ingredient that I don’t have in my own kitchen.”

She doesn’t jump on any wellness bandwagons, either. “My tastes are pretty simple—I don’t drink weird green juices or anything like that,” she said, adding that her diet is “very normal.”

In the January Instagram, she elaborated: “My mantra is: Don’t eat too much, too fast, too often or too late. Or, put another way, eat smaller meals, chew properly, ban snacking, and eat dinner earlier. This works for me.”

She continued, adding that she prioritizes fruits and vegetables, ensuring that they take up half her plate with every meal, and she “only take[s] supplements if a blood test tells me I’m lacking something.”

As for Hurley’s fitness routine, it’s just as simple as her diet. “I don’t go to the gym, but I’m very active … I don’t really sit still very much,” she said. Gardening, for example, is one of her favorite pastimes, she added.

As low-maintenance as those choices seem to be, Hurley is unafraid to admit that she does plenty of things, in general, to keep up her energy and appearance. “I work for a cosmetic company, I work for fashion companies, I have my own fashion company, I’m in high definition on massive cinema screens,” she said. “So it’s my business to make more effort … of course I do, it’s my bread and butter.”
