Elizabeth Hurley Trades Wine For Vodka and Beef JerkyPosted on Nov 13th 2009 12:00PM by Martha Edwards
At 44 years old and with a body that most 20-somethings would give their right arm for, mother-of-one Liz Hurley has got to be doing a few things exceptionally well to look as fantastic as she does. So it's not surprising that this British stunner has a few diet tricks up her sleeves. As the UK's Daily Mail recently reported, Liz has given up her favorite drink – a glass of wine – for a lower-calorie cocktail: vodka mixed with lots of sparkling water and a bit of lime. "I don't really like vodka that much," she told the Daily Mail. "Initially it's like medicine but I've got used to it now."
That's not the only thing she like that she's given up in the interest of looking her best – she also admitted that she's given up coffee because she heard it causes bloating, and she only eats one meal a day, often going to bed hungry. Does that sound like fun or what?(Editor's Note: Studies show coffee in moderation has many benefits and That's Fit does not suggest eating only one meal a day.) But don't feel too sorry for her – she's filling the void that wine, coffee and regular meals have left in her life by filling up on beef jerky. In fact, she loves the stuff so much that she even has her own brand of it. No, seriously.
What do you think of her approach? Is looking good worth giving up the food and drinks you love? Or is it unrealistic to ditch your favorite indulgences in moderation to save a few calories?
Living on beef jerky might sound crazy, but it's nothing compared to the tapeworm diet.
