True story, you can tell everything about a woman based on what she has in her bag.

Supermodel Elle Macpherson spilled the beans on what she keeps in her designer purse, and it's safe to say that it's not what you'd expect to find.

When asked what would surprise fans the most about what she lugs around all day, she told the Evening Standard, "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."

Yep. You read that correctly, folks. The Body herself totes around urine tests to ensure that she's in tip-top shape at all times. Now that's commitment.

The Aussie beauty also dished about her fitness regimen and admitted that "variation is key" when it comes to her workouts.

"I work out 45 minutes a day, six days a week, combining hiking, waterskiing, swimming and running on the beach," she told the paper.

And for those out there who find it tricky to find time to go to the gym in the midst of their hectic schedules?

"Schedule your private life like you schedule your business life, with respect and consideration," she muses.

Macpherson also shared her secrets to staying lean, saying, "Consistency and eating three healthy meals a day."

But as far as her diet goes, the 51-year-old clarified that she steers clear of "red meat, wheat and dairy."
