Elle Macpherson is “basically vegan” – but loves chocolate and cream pie.
The 56-year-old supermodel – who has sons Cy, 22, and Aurelius, 17, with former partner Arpad Busson – tries to keep her diet as healthy as possible, with no animal products, but will still indulge in the occasional treat.
She said: “I am basically vegan. That’s the way I like to eat, but I do have a weakness for chocolate.
“I love an espresso and I’m pretty good with a cream pie.
“Basically, I enjoy feeling good, I enjoy getting outdoors and exercising, being in the fresh air, being with nature, being with my children.
“I eat three meals a day and I have two snacks, three snacks sometimes.
“I’m quite easy about my life because I think life is for living.”
Elle overhauled her diet after turning 50 and realizing she wasn’t sleeping well or looking as good as she could.
She told new! magazine: “When I was 50, I wasn’t feeling myself.
“I was finding it very difficult to sleep.
“My hair, nails and skin were dry and damaged.
“I was putting on weight.
“I went to a nutritionist and I said, ‘Something’s not right.’
“She said, ‘Yeah, you’re doing the same things you did when you were 20.
“When you are 50, we need to change things around.’
“She put me on a multi-vitamin and mineral probiotic, prebiotic, all-in-one greens super powder.
“It changed my life.”
The WelleCo guru believes people look their best when properly “nourished”.
She said: “I know it sounds like a cliché that beauty comes from within, but in my experience it really is true.
“If you nourish yourself from the inside, and you really nourish yourself on a cellular level, it’s really going to show on the outside.
“You are going to feel better and you are also going to look better.”
