Kelly Ripa is just 47 and is working hard for her body, even if the social media trolls think she should cover up at her age.
Kelly— who was criticised on Instagram for sporting a gold bikini on a beach getaway— follows a strict diet and exercise regimen for staying in shape as her husband Mark Consuelos has pointed.
In a reply to Kelly’s critics, Mark wrote: “She works extremely hard in her professional life and her commitment to exercise, a healthy diet is admirable and the benefits show. Yes, she’s wearing a bikini at age 47 and will no doubt wear one for many years to come.”
The “Live with Kelly & Ryan” host has first begun with an high-alkaline diet—which has focused on vegetables like beets, broccoli, cucumber, kale, kiwi, bell pepper and many more— while avoiding acidic foods such as yogurt, fish, and sugar.
On her show in 2015, Kelly has said, “It has changed my life, it’s changed the whole way I think about food.” The mother of three came to know about the diet— which starts with a seven-day cleanse— from celeb nutritionist Dr. Daryl Gioffre.
Kelly has revealed, “It’s a very manageable cleanse. It’s very manageable.” She has said, “You’re not hungry. It’s not like … people go, ‘What are you eating? You’re just drinking, you know, a green juice a day?’ No, it’s not like that. You eat. I actually eat much more on this cleanse than I do in my actual life, but it’s what you eat and how you eat it.”
Kelly has figured out ways to make the alkaline diet work for her life, with some adjustments. The host is extremely devoted to her workouts and loves AKT— Anna Kaiser Technique— and SoulCycle classes, along with running.
She has said of AKT, “I love the dance class.” Kelly has shared that as she thinks she has aged out of going clubbing, really, that’s her nightclub and everybody there is her age, so it’s like a bunch of us old ladies working out.
