Elle Macpherson is dedicated to keeping her body looking as wonderful as possible. The 51 year old model told the London Evening Standard that in addition to working out 45 minutes a day, 6 days a week, she regularly drains her lymph nodes and tests her pee. In fact, she tests her pee so regularly that she carries the test kit in her purse.
She says there is always "a pH balance urine tester kit to check that I'm in an alkaline state." She believes "that most ailments come from having an acidic body." Macpherson follows an alkaline diet so she doesn't eat red meat, wheat or dairy.
She also tries to keep her lymph nodes clear. As soon as she returns to London, she says "I visit my nutritionist Dr. Simone Laubscher on Harley Street and Shirley at Dr Sebagh's clinic for lymphatic drainage."
In the last few weeks, we've seen lots of celebrity diets revealed. Some are reasonable, some sound like complete BS. Others, just sound plain unhealthy. Obviously whatever Elle Macpherson is doing is more than working for her but for most of us, draining our lymph nodes isn't really a viable option. As for the pee testing, I've been known to test mine from time to time. Keeping myself in an alkaline state has certainly made a difference in the way that I feel, if nothing else. I think she's on the money with that one. The rest, I don't know. Time for you to weigh in, what do you think?
