Kelly Ripa’s Anti-Aging Weight Maintenance Plan
Some individuals can maintain fitness all year without going on crash diets and crazy workout schedules and Kelly Ripa is just one of those people. Her secret is her anti-ageing vegan based alkaline diet and everyday fitness routine.
An alkaline diet recommends eating fresh green vegetables, fruits, beans, lentils, spices, seeds and nuts, while avoiding sugar, coffee, alcohol, processed foods and dairy.
Her alkaline diet is primarily a vegan diet, but she does like cream in her coffee the occasional glass of wine. Not really a strict vegan diet then there is also the 7 day cleanse she does and back to her normal diet.
Ripa also make it a point to do workout every single day. She varies her exercise with running once a week, taking cardio dance classes four days a week, and doing SoulCycle twice a week.
“There are a lot of people that don’t have to work out, and I am so happy for them, but I have to work out for my body type,” she said. “It’s part of my routine. It’s part of my ritual. It doesn’t just make me look better, but it makes me emotionally feel better.”
Because of her Alkaline Diet, she does not have to resort to crash dieting or starving herself because what sets this diet apart from the others is that there is no severe calorie restriction so she is able to eat much more during this form of cleansing.
Other celebrities who are into Alkaline diet include Victoria Beckham, Elle Macpherson, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Jennifer Aniston, according to Celebrity health and fitness.
On the other hand, a news article from Health.com also cautioned that the research on the efficacy of the Alkaline diet is still limited. And, it may even be unnecessary to undergo one because our bodies are inherently designed to maintain pH balance. It also noted that acidic food aren’t necessarily bad like those considered in the acid-forming category but are naturally healthy such as cranberries, pomegranates, chickpeas, walnuts, and tea.
