Elle has come out and admitted that she carries a urine tester kit wherever she goes, so she can always check her body is in an alkaline state.

Best known as 'The Body', Elle tests the pH of her urine to see how acidic or alkaline her body is.

"The most surprising thing in my handbag is a pH balance urine tester kit to check that I'm in an alkaline state. I believe that most ailments come from having an acidic body."

So how does one achieve an 'alkaline body'? By eating lots of leafy greens, drinking loads of water, cutting back on acid-forming meat and dairy products and exercising regularly.

"Variation is key. I work out 45 minutes a day, six days a week, combining hiking, water skiing, swimming and running on a beach," she told the Evening Standard.

"[My idea of a healthy diet is] consistency and eating three healthy meals a day. Having said that, red meat, wheat and dairy don't work for me."

The news has gone viral with many people a bit shocked at the supermodel's secret!
