She Starts Her Day Off with Hot Water and Lemon

Elizabeth, like many other stars, swear by this hot water concoction in the morning. old "I often put apple cider vinegar in my hot water," she told The Cut. "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 Loads Up on Food Earlier in the Day


Elizabeth front loads her daily eating, consuming more food earlier in the day. "I rarely skip breakfast and always eat lunch but the lighter my evening meal the better," she told Healthy Living. 


Her Diet Is Extremely Healthy

"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 revealed to The Cut. "If I can grow it myself, I'm even happier. All through summer we eat fruit and vegetables from my own garden." She also avoids junk 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.


She Avoids Alcohol

Hurley isn't a big drinker. "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. 


She Won't Exercise

Elizabeth isn't a fan of formal workouts. "I don't exercise, but I am very active," she told Harper's Bazaar. "I believe in gentle exercise and lots of it," she added to 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."


She Counts Her Steps

However, she does track her activity "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."
