The first thing Elizabeth puts in her body when she wakes up is a cup of steaming H2O. "I often put apple cider vinegar in my hot water. It tastes disgusting. I can't face it every day, so I'll put it in my hot water maybe every other day. It's good for your metabolism," she told The Cut.


Eat Your Heavier Meals Earlier in the Day

Elizabeth is a big proponent of eating heavier earlier in the day and lightening up your intake as the day progresses. "I rarely skip breakfast and always eat lunch but the lighter my evening meal the better," she told Healthy Living.


Avoid Processed Food

Elizabeth believes in living off the land and avoiding processed foods. "I really try to go out of my way to eat an apple for a snack instead of a cookie," she told Healthy Living. And, "processed and junk foods" are on her do not eat list. "I like simple, natural, easy food. I don't really like food with a lot of chemicals or additives. When I'm at home in the country, I always try and eat food that's grown locally. That goes for meats and vegetables," she added to The Cut. "If I can grow it myself, I'm even happier.

Elizabeth doesn't spend much of her time drinking or smoking. "You can't look good if you're not healthy, and diet plays a big part. You can't smoke and have too much alcohol," she explained to The Cut.


You Don't Have to Workout to Stay in Shape

Elizabeth doesn't believe that you have to spend time in a gym to stay in shape. "I don't exercise, but I am very active," she explained to Harper's Bazaar. "I believe in gentle exercise and lots of it," she previously told Us Weekly. "So I believe in being active, going for walks, stretching, maybe a little yoga or a little Pilates. But I don't like high impact, high energy sports. I don't actually think they do you much good. As long as you get your heart rate to the rate you need it to get, which is a fast walk. But you need to do a bit of it."


Count Your Steps

Elizabeth counts her steps to ensure she is active enough. "I walk every day, so I try and hit my 10,000 steps a day and I do some stretching every day," she told Us. "And then sometimes I do a bit more, but that's enough for me really."
