Ripa’s trainer, Anna Kaiser, told Shape that
the Live with Kelly and Ryan co-host “works
out four to five days per week for 90 minutes
But looking this buff involves more than just
Here’s what Ripa typically eats in a day.
“chocolate covered larve, here it goes
“A beautiful cappuccino”
As a morning talk show host, it may go without
saying that Ripa loves her caffeine.
She told Bon Appétit that every morning after
she wakes up at 6:30, her husband, Mark Consuelos,
makes her “a beautiful cappuccino with half-and-half.”
Ripa then heads to the kitchen to prepare
her kids’ breakfasts, but she told the mag,
“I never eat breakfast until after the show.
I can’t seem to focus my mind if my stomach
I find that if I eat beforehand, I’m just
making digesting sounds.”
“Is coffee that good? yes. Is it really?”
Finally, some breakfast
If you watch Live with Kelly and Ryan, you’ll
typically see Ripa with big mug — and it’s
full of more liquid fuel.
She told Bon Appetit,
“At the host chat desk, I’ll have a triple
shot skim latte.”
After the show wraps up, Ripa finally has

“On Sunday, it’s a full hot breakfast.

It becomes lavender infused.
So you get salty, sweet, and a little tang.
It’s very good.
It’s my dessert, my breakfast, everything!”
Ripa is also a believer in always having fresh
produce at home, for snacks, and follows a
similar clean-eating plan for dinner.
“If I’m having a sliced chicken breast, I’d
put it on a bed of simple sautéed spinach
with a little bit of lemon and olive oil.”
All about those snacks
Ripa’s greatest weakness isn’t candy, it’s
Pepperidge Farm goldfish crackers.
She told Shape,
“It’s a wonderful snack that I’m addicted
But she tries her best to keep her snacking
In her Live with Kelly and Ryan dressing room
she keeps a variety of so-called “clean” goodies
on hand, telling Bon Appetit,
“I have flaxseed snacks.
[…] I have Think Thin peanut butter protein
I don’t think they have sugar in them.
They have a lot of protein.
I don’t know if they’re any good for me.
But I like the taste of them.”

Jumping on the juice trend
With some encouragement from co-host, Ryan
Seacrest, Ripa decided to try the iZO Superfood
Cleanse, which People magazine says is essentially
a juice cleanse with the addition of “superfood
powders,” like algae and seaweed.
Not one for juice cleanses, Ripa said she’d
give it a shot after witnessing Seacrest’s
