Macpherson is on the Alkaline Diet, which involves monitoring your body's pH, and seeing what food affects it. She told Vogue that this diet has helped her body out a lot, including her skin. "What I'd always thought were sunspots – actually, they were sugar spots – started to clear, and my skin looked tighter, dewier, plumper," she said. "I started to lose weight, probably because my sugar cravings had subsided. My digestion improved. I felt more emotionally balanced."


She Switched Her Workout Routine

At the 2019 Business Chicks Speaking Tour in Sydney, Macpherson spoke about her approach to fitness, and how it changed throughout her career. She said, "When I was younger, wellness was more like fitness. Looks were important – especially in my job – but I don't think I truly understood what it meant to balance inner and outer beauty." Macpherson said that she realized that she had to switch up her workouts and how she approached fitness. "I quickly realized that I was doing the same things over and over, unconsciously, and expecting different results."


She Loves Walking In The Ocean

Macpherson doesn't just love going to the beach for the views and the sunshine, she also loves it for the exercise. Macpherson said on the Business Chicks tour that she loves to workout at the beach, specifically walking in the ocean. "It tones the legs and the waist, it's great for minerals, and if you have any water retention, it's a great diuretic," she said. "I walk in about thigh-deep or knee-deep water for 40 minutes to an hour."

Macpherson revealed to that she has a unique way of preparing her food. "I have invested in a dehydrator. Cooking food can strip it of its nutrients. I like the idea that preparing my meals at a lower drying temperature, means they taste great but still have their proper nutritional value."


She Eats Gut-Friendly Food


Macpherson told that she eats a lot of gut-friendly food, and revealed some of her favorite options to the website. "I have replaced red meat with fresh line-caught fish and ramped-up my daily vegetable quota (especially greens). I generally have my greens with whatever I eat at lunch, which is often a salad with a base of pulses, lentils or quinoa. I load it up with leafy greens and other vegetables, especially kale, spinach, sprouts and rocket."


She Gets Outside

Macpherson is a big fan of going outside and getting fresh air. She tells, "If I'm on the road, I'll bring my running shoes along and go for a jog or a walk – I love to explore my new surroundings and soak up the outdoors."
