Elizabeth Hurley in Bathing Suit Hints She's Watching Ozark

Here’s how the actress and model stays fit.

Elizabeth Hurley shared a photo of herself in a bathing suit yesterday, but was it a photo taken then? "Yes, I could be in a swimming pool with a pink flamingo," she captioned it, "or I could be snuggled up with my doggies in Blighty, eating a Terry's chocolate orange and about to watch the final season of Ozark….. you decide." Hmm. Given that we were glued to Ozark, albeit with popcorn instead of a chocolate orange, we're inclined to guess she was, too. Regardless, how does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Elizabeth Hurley stays in shape and the photos that prove they work—and to get beach-ready yourself, don't miss these essential 30 Best-Ever Celebrity Bathing Suit Photos!


She Gave Up Processed Foods

"I haven't eaten processed food for 100 years," Hurley told the Times. "I don't eat sweets. I drink little alcohol. … I have learned to eat lighter and not so late." "Processed foods, such as high sugar foods and pre-packaged foods, lack fiber and nutrients which are needed to support the gut microbiota," Jonathan Valdez, RDN, CDCES, owner of Genki Nutrition, and Media Spokesperson for New York State Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, said in an interview with our sister site Eat This, Not That! "Studies have concluded that processed foods reduce the number of gut microbiota and influence the immune system's 'readiness' and the body's defense against pathogenic bacteria."


She Has Learned to Self-Reflect

The pandemic—"It made me realize that I'd been in fight or flight mode for 30-odd years," she told Women's Health. "I'm not very relaxed, as a person, in any case, but I have to say I became more so during lockdown."


She Exercises But Prefers Anywhere But the Gym

 "I don't really do any set exercise, per se, because I prefer to get my exercise from doing something than being in the gym," Elizabeth has said. Case in point: "Not only do I feel, well, actually exhausted, but also I feel that I've got the leaves up, which is also a nice thing." 


She Counteracts the Bad Stuff With Vegetables

"I think one of the most transformative things that I've done is making 50 per cent of what I eat vegetable matter. If you have a slice of toast for breakfast, have an apple too. Counteract everything with vegetables," she once reportedly said.


She Crusades to End Breast Cancer

"When my grandmother lost her life to breast cancer in the early 90's, nobody spoke openly about this disease," she wrote on Instagram. "Times have changed, but people are still dying. Today, our call to help end breast cancer for all is more urgent than ever as breast cancer is now the most commonly diagnosed cancer worldwide," Liz continued.
