Kelly Ripa is getting real about her body.
“I can be honest: My body looks like Peter Pan no matter what I do. I’ve never been a va-va-voom woman,” Ripa told the Cut.
“I like to take AKT — which is cardio-based dance classes — about four to five days a week between 3 and 5 p.m,” she said. “And I like to do SoulCycle on the weekends. In the summer, I like to run in Central Park because I think it’s so gorgeous.
Ripa added that she does it for her overall health.
“I was talking to a cardiologist and he said to make sure your heart beats out of your chest every day,” she said. “The more you exercise, the healthier it is.”
Along with her near-daily workouts, Ripa sticks to a high-alkaline diet, which focuses on vegetables like beets, broccoli, cucumber, kale, kiwi, bell pepper and more, while avoiding acidic foods like yogurt, fish and sugar.
“I make a ‘Bullet Coffee’ at home in the morning — it’s coffee, two shots of espresso and a tablespoon of ghee and then a packet of collagen powder,” Ripa said. “Ryan’s girlfriend got me hooked on it and I just sort of believe that if I drink it every day, my hair will be as thick as hers. Then I blend it all together and have this frosty thick beverage.”
