Kelly Ripa is one of many celebrities who has aged gracefully, keeping her body bikini-ready year-round as she does. Although some celebrities may use cosmetic procedures to keep looking young, Kelly seems to have found the perfect combination of great genes and hard work.

The Live with Kelly and Mark host has found the best diet plans that work for her, and her nutritionist, Dr. Daryl Gioffre, recently shared her diet plans and the best ways to implement a new diet yourself.

Let's take a look at what Kelly Ripa eats in a day and how she stays looking so youthful.

Here's what Kelly Ripa eats in a day

Dr. Gioffre told E! News that Kelly begins her day by mixing a scoop of Dr. Gioffre's Acid-Kicking Green powder with a glass of water. The Acid-Kicking Green powder is described as dehydrated greens and comes from Dr. Gioffre's brand Alkamind.

After her green juice, Kelly goes for a coffee, which Dr. Gioffre says she blends with grass-fed butter and his Acid-Kicking Coffee Alkalizer.

After her routine on air, she'll have her snack: A green apple with a few tablespoons of almond butter and a teaspoon of cinnamon mixed into a porridge-like consistency. She also snacks on raw nuts throughout the day.

For lunch, Kelly has a salad topped with microgreens, sprouts, avocado, and raw nuts.

When it's time for dinner, Kelly usually eats a smaller version of the salad she had for lunch, along with some steamed or sauteed vegetables, or even some grilled greens. For protein, she might eat grilled tofu or tahini or another fish protein.

Of course, a meal isn't a meal without dessert and tea, and Kelly doesn't skip this portion of her day, either. When Kelly wants something sweet, she'll eat Dr. Gioffre's avocado chocolate mousse, which contains avocados, pure vanilla extract, raw cacao, dates and sea salt. Or, she'll have his chocolate chia pudding for fiber.

And before Ripa goes to sleep, he continues, she'll drink his Acid-Kicking Detox Tea featuring turmeric, ginger, lemon and black pepper.

Kelly Ripa works out

Of course, diet isn't the only reason that Kelly has such a solid figure: She maintains a actve lifestyle as well.

"I was talking to a cardiologist and he said to make sure your heart beats out of your chest every day. The more you exercise, the healthier it is. And I can be honest: My body looks like Peter Pan no matter what I do. I’ve never been a va-va-voom woman," Kelly explained to The Cut in 2019.

"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. In the summer, I like to run in Central Park because I think it’s so gorgeous."

Diet tips from Kelly Ripa's nutritionist

"I've never met someone who is busier than Kelly," Dr. Daryl Gioffre told E! News in the exclusive interview. "She is supermom. She is just amazing on the show. She works out seven days a week, and she maintains this incredible strength eating lifestyle that I've taught her."

You may be asking, what is strength eating? Well, Dr. Gioffre describes strength eating as "every time you're hungry or you're gonna put something in your body, it has to be something that is going to strengthen you from the inside out." For example, common strength foods would be nutrient-dense items such as greens, healthy fats, protein and fiber.

Rather than focusing on what to remove from your diet, Dr. Gioffre recommends focusing on what you can add to your diet.

"Just start with one thing," he explains, "but master that one thing, commit to that one thing and do that one thing consistently." For example, Dr. Gioffre began by adding a green juice to his routine when he was a self-described sugar addict.

"And then when you feel good enough that that's part of your lifestyle, you do it on a regular basis and it's automatic, you don't have to think about it," he continued, "then you can add the next thing and then the next thing."
