Elle Macpherson doesn't believe in "excessive" exercise.

The 52-year-old Australian model - who accrued the title 'The Body' due to her fabulous figure - follows a "simple" diet and fitness routine, which includes 45 minutes of sport and 45 minutes of "quiet time" a day.

Speaking to The New Potato online about her health and beauty practice, the blonde beauty said: "I don't believe in fad diets or excessive exercise plans. I keep it simple, so it's easier to stick to. Forty-five minutes of sport a day, and forty-five minutes of quiet time a day. Love, laughter and water! I believe in wellness and maintenance, which to me means easy does it all year long."

Elle has to pencil in her workouts into her busy schedule to ensure she always does exercise.

She explained: "I treat my personal diary like my business diary. So anything I want to prioritize - like exercise - gets scheduled in just like an important meeting."

Elle's non-stop work commitments have begun to take their toll on her body and decreased her alkaline level.

She said: "Several years ago, despite my best efforts, I started feeling run-down. I tried an array of supplements, but nothing seemed to do the trick. That's when I met Simone Laubscher, Ph.D., who specialises in the science of nutrition. She explained that there was one factor in my life that wasn't balanced: my body's alkalinity. My pH levels of acid to alkaline were off-kilter, causing my body to try to compensate. As she put it, my body was "working overtime, all the time," leaving me feeling exhausted."
