Drink This When You Wake Up

If you want to follow in Elizabeth's health footsteps, start the day of a cup of piping hot 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.

Dinner shouldn't be your biggest meal of the day, says Hurley. "I rarely skip breakfast and always eat lunch but the lighter my evening meal the better," she told Healthy Living. 


Don't Eat Anything Processed


Elizabeth suggests eating wholesome foods and avoiding anything processed. "I really try to go out of my way to eat an apple for a snack instead of a cookie," she told Healthy Living, adding that "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 told The Cut. "If I can grow it myself, I'm even happier.


Don't Drink or Smoke

"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 told The Cut. 


Stay Active

Elizabeth isn't a big proponent of the gym. "I don't exercise, but I am very active," she told Harper's Bazaar. She previously revealed to Us Weekly that her method is "gentle exercise and lots of it," which involves. "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 Steps

Elizabeth suggests activity trackers. "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."
