She Works Out Every Day
Kelly is extremely disciplined with exercise, recently telling Yahoo's In the Know that she never skips a day. "I work out seven days a week. And I try to workout an hour and a half a day, no matter what — whether I'm working or not," Ripa shared with us. "If I'm working, maybe I'll start it a little bit later or a little bit earlier, depending on what day of the week it is. But I am very religious about my fitness."
Exercising Gives Her Energy
"I think that energy begets energy," she told ITK. "There are people that say, 'You must hate working out!' It's going to be so hard to push your way through [with that attitude], and I love working out. But it's like developing a love for anything: You have to really practice it to love it. And, so, I found that years ago I really figured out that the more energy I put into the gym or left on the dance floor, the more energy came back to me."
She Quit Drinking
In 2020 Kelly revealed that she and Mark had quit drinking, which contributes to their "healthy lifestyle," she explained to Parade. "We did both quit drinking almost three years ago. Not that we were sitting around drinking day and night, but I think that there is something about like clean living—maybe that's what did it. Maybe that's the difference."
She Follows a High-Alkaline Diet
Kelly told People that she swears by a high-alkaline diet, and that the low-acid meal plan is "responsible for [her] not being in pain." "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," she said.
Her Diet Is Mostly Plant-Based
As part of her healthy eating plan, she shies away from animal products. "I like to drink coffee. I occasionally will have fish. The alkaline diet is primarily a vegan diet, but I like cream in my coffee. I like to have a glass of wine. So I don't adhere to it strictly, but when I do a cleanse, it will be seven days, and then I go back to my normal life. But my normal life, like I said, is not that different than the alkaline cleanse," she told People.
This Is Her Morning Cocktail
Ripa revealed to Harper's Bazaar that she starts her morning out with a unique cocktail, a glass of Get off Your Acid's Daily Greens mixed with water, a mug of coffee and ghee, paired with personalized Persona supplements she dubs her "foundational vitamin."
