Elizabeth Hurley Celebrates "Blissful" Bikini on Instagram
At 55, Elizabeth Hurley is still wearing bikinis more than clothes. The model, actress, and swimwear entrepreneur shared a video of herself from the English countryside on Monday, modeling one of the gorgeous, gold string bikinis from her Elizabeth Hurley Beach collection. "Bliss," she simply captioned the video, radiating with happiness. It was impossible not to notice her fit and toned figure in the skimpy swimsuit. What exactly does Hurley do to stay in such great shape? Here are some of her best diet, fitness and wellness tips and tricks.

Most stars spend a lot of time at the gym to stay in shape, but not Hurley. In 2019, the supermodel revealed to Harper's Bazaar that she doesn't work out. "I don't exercise, but I am very active," she explained. She added to Us Weekly in October 2018 that she believes in lots of gentle exercise. "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 Keeps Track of Her Steps
While she doesn't do intensive cardio on a machine, she takes daily walks,"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."
She Swears by ACV
Hurley told The Cut that she starts her day off with a concoction of hot water and apple cider vinegar. "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 said.
She Eats Bigger Meals Earlier in the Day
Hurley starts her day with bigger meals and lightens up her portion as the day progresses. "I rarely skip breakfast and always eat lunch but the lighter my evening meal the better," she told Healthy Living.
She Stays Away From Junk Food
Hurley snacks, but makes smart choices. "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 she avoids "processed and junk foods."
She Eats as Local as Possible
Hurley has a motto when it comes to where her food is from: the closer to home, the better. "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. All through summer we eat fruit and vegetables from my own garden. I used to have a small organic farm, and all the meat my son ate was from the farm. Obviously that's not possible for most people, but supporting local farmers wherever you live is a good thing." She even maxis her own food: "Lockdown has turned me into a demented housewife: 47 jars of marmalade nestling in my larder with more Seville oranges awaiting me"
