Elizabeth Hurley, 56, on why she refuses to ditch her bikinis or do strict diets to maintain her incredible figure

ELIZABETH Hurley refuses to diet and loves her fuller body as she continues to show it off in bikinis.

Liz, 56, regularly poses in skimpy bikinis and has no plans to cover up anytime soon.

The model often takes to Instagram to show off her amazing body and promote her swimwear line, The Elizabeth Hurley collection.

She does not mind that she's put on weight and thinks 'life's too short' to worry about dieting.

"I’m at least 10 pounds heavier than I was 20 years ago but I don’t care," Liz told the Daily Mail.

"I probably eat a bit more now but I don’t eat takeaways and only drink sodas once in a blue moon. Life’s too short to be on a super strict diet."

She added: "My weakness is peanut butter – if it’s in the house, I’ll stick my finger in the jar every time I walk past it"

Even though she does not work out as much any more, she let fans in on how she keeps fit.

"I love working in my garden and am never happier than when wielding a strimmer. I walk my dogs a lot too," Liz explained.

"I don’t do any set exercise but can’t sit still for long. I actually eat quite a lot, but very little junk or processed foods and don’t drink much alcohol. I try to eat lots of vegetables and never eat between meals."

Modelling her own swimwear line has helped her to feel confident as she gets older.

"I love modelling my collections and actually think feeling comfortable and confident comes with age," Elizabeth said.

"There might be a time when I don’t want to model swimwear and move onto voluminous kaftans, but currently I’m still enjoying it."

Liz has also been working as an ambassador for The Estée Lauder Companies (ELC) as part of their Breast Cancer Campaign.

The issue is dear to her heart after losing her nan to breast cancer and encouraged people to regularly check their breasts.

"Self-checking is really important; I have personally met many women who have discovered lumps themselves, including several of my close friends," she said.

"By familiarising yourself with your own breasts, it should become easier to spot, or feel, any changes. 

"I self-check every month, in front of the mirror. I would advise everyone to do the same and to try and see it as part of your monthly routine, rather than as something to fear."
