 All the Details On Her Nutrition and Fitness Routine, Plus Tasty Recipes!

When at the age of 26 you've been officially given the nickname "The Body" byTimemagazine, the prospect of getting older might be a tad intimidating.

But not if you're Elle Macpherson! I am amazed that this woman is 51 years old. I hope I can look half as good when I am her age. She obviously takes very good care of herself. Read on for her insights, diet tips and workout advice. Screen Shot 2015-04-21 at 2.32.36 PM We caught up with the Australian supermodel, who is celebrating her 51st  birthday today (yes, you read that correctly: 5-1) to get the inside scoop on exactly how she maintains "the body"—and what we can do to look and feel a little more Elle-thy! "I've learned that an alkaline body and pH-neutral body is a healthier body," Macpherson exclusively tells E! News. "Many people believe that it combats disease, encourages cellular renewal and therefore is anti-aging. When all of our 11 body systems are nourished well and detoxifying properly, they are in their optimal state." Elle Macpherson, Wellco In fact, the model-mogul-mom is so passionate about wellness she co-founded Welleco to create supplements she could use in her own efforts to feel healthier and trim some weight from her midsection (yes, even supermodels get the belly blues). "I feel that my body hums now that I am taking The Super Elixir™ every day; my workouts are strong, I've lost weight around my middle, my moods are balanced, I don't have sugar cravings and I just feel on top of my game," she dished to us. And while Macpherson looks so good it hurts (she still wears the Elle out of a bikini, don't you think?), she promises that achieving one's own optimal body doesn't have to be a painful process. In fact, it's all about doing... less? She really is a stunning woman - now isn't she?

"Simplifying and de-cluttering my life is a big focus for me," Macpherson says. "I now don't take tons of vitamins and supplements—I only take the Super Elixir. I don't have a large wardrobe and I don't wear a lot of accessories.
"It's cleansing and nourishing to focus only on the essentials—it puts you in a strong place. Quality over quantity!" And perhaps most importantly, she adds, "I always sleep seven hours a night, and laugh as much as I can!" (This is probably the best advice right here!) But we also asked Macpherson to really put the pieces together for us—and she did! Check out how she gets it done: Screen Shot 2015-04-21 at 2.30.09 PM
OK, here is her routine! But 5 am? UGH.
Upon waking at 5 a.m., "I drink 500 mililiters of room-temperature water every day upon waking up.  It's so important to stay hydrated and I aim to have 3 liters of water a day." • "At around 6:30 a.m. I eat a breakfast that contains protein. It is either one poached egg on sunflower or dark rye bread (wheat-free), or some Canadian bacon (no fat or preservatives or antibiotics).  I also like to mix it up and will have oatmeal with agave, half of a grapefruit or some blueberries. I love an espresso, and will always have one, followed by 500 mililiters of water."  "At 8:30 a.m., I have 2 teaspoons of The Super Elixir [or TSE] in cold coconut water in my Super Shaker." •  "I schedule my daily workouts for 9 a.m. after the school run. I'll do a different sport every day if I can. I mix it up, but no matter what, I do 45 minutes of something a day. I love the outdoors. If I'm by the water, I love to paddleboard, surf, swim laps or water ski. I also love to hike or run for about 50 minutes a day. Staying hydrated is so important, and I always have 500 mililiters of water during my workout." "For lunch, I usually have a vegetarian kale or spinach salad with some of my favorite ingredients—avocado, beets, sunflower seeds, goats cheese, quinoa or lentils!" • For an afternoon snack, "I love soaked raw almonds in spring water and always keep some around the house to snack on. And I make sure to have another 1.5 liters of water between lunch and dinner. If I'm hungry or craving sugar, I'll have another 2 teaspoons of TSE shaken in coconut water—or a Super Shake made with my new Nourishing Protein. It's a super-clean, pea protein powder that is Peruvian chocolate flavored. I take it with vanilla almond milk in a blender. Some of my favorite snacks are coconut (anything coconut! Fresh coconut meat if I'm in the Bahamas, or shaved ice), apples with almond butter [or ] sashimi." • "Dinner is always fresh fish and vegetables, and I try my best to eat before 7 p.m." • "I love dark chocolate so I may have a bit of Green & Black's in the evening, or raw cocoa nibs. If I'm feeling extra indulgent, I love meringue pie." Chocolate? Meringue pie? Glad to hear she allows herself to indulge as well.

Shipping & Delivery

Fast, Express Shipping.

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-5 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.
