Elle Macpherson's Diet Secrets Include Pee Tests and Lymphatic Drainage

May 01, 2015 1 min read

Elle Macpherson is dedicated to keeping her body looking as wonderful as possible. The 51 year old model told  the London Evening Standardthat 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?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. 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 2-3 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. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


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.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.


All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
