Kelly Ripa isn’t about fad diets anymore.
The “Live With Kelly and Ryan” co-host used to be extremely strict with her diet, but at age 48 she’s more lax.
“My husband [Mark Consuelos] has gone full keto, which I don’t mind telling you is something I could never do. I just don’t have that level of discipline,” Ripa admitted to Bon Appétit’s Healthyish. “Mark says that I’m carb-o, because I always eat his bun if he gets a burger. And the fries. But you know, I work out, so I feel like I’m allowed. I’m 48, I’m entitled, and I’m eating whatever I want to eat.”
Although Ripa maintains a healthy diet most of the time and exercises religiously, the morning show host has a go-to cheat food.
“Mark and I used to have peanut butter and jelly as a bedtime snack. I’m not sure why. Even as a kid, I didn’t really like it, but now here I am. I get ciabatta bread, and now I eat half a sandwich before bed, with chunky Skippy peanut butter or Justin’s honey peanut butter and Bonne Maman strawberry or raspberry jam,” she explained.
“Here’s the thing: I’m 48. These are things at 38 I never would have tainted myself with. But at 48, I’m sort of saying, Who cares? Life is short. Eat the peanut butter and jelly.”
Ripa also opened up to The Cut about her workout routine and griped that she’d always have a “Peter Pan” body.
“And I can be honest: My body looks like Peter Pan no matter what I do,” she said. “I’ve never been a va-va-voom woman. I like to take AKT — which is cardio-based dance classes — about four to five days a week between 3 and 5 p.m. And I like to do SoulCycle on the weekends.”
