We saw Mark Consuelos this week, so how could we not see Kelly Ripa?
The answer is that it wouldn’t be possible.
If you don’t know this, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos worked together for years on All My Children and are also married; which is why they’re coming in as a package deal this week.
Kelly, who starred in All My Children from 1990-2010 went on to host show Live With Kelly and Ryan, which went on with multiple co-hosts and 29 seasons!
And, since this is Superhero Jacked, I do feel that it’s necassary to mention that she has also voiced characters in Batman: Mystery of the Batwoman, Kim Possible: A Sitch in Time, and Duck Dodgers!
Kelly Ripa Stats:
Weight: (approximate) 110 lbs.
Age: 49 years old
Like hubby did among men, Kelly Ripa falls into the shortest category among women we’ve seen at SHJ.
Actually, she could even be tied for the shortest we’ve seen.
Normally the average height we see for women is around 5’4-5’6 with ladies such as Jennifer Aniston, Margot Robbie, Olivia Munn, Alicia Vikander, Sophia Bush, Tatiana Maslany, Evangeline Lilly, and a ton of others.
But then there is also that taller range, and among the tallest (even taller than the 5’7-5’8), are ladies like Gwendoline Christie, Gal Gadot, and a few others – with Phoebe Tonkin, Gabrielle Union, Brie Larson, Nina Dobrev, Daisy Ridley, and so many more coming in around that 5’7-5’8 range.
But, either way, don’t worry.

Kelly Ripa Diet and Nutrition
In Mark’s article we saw some words from Kelly Ripa describing his diet in an interview with US Magazine, and here we’re going to expand on that to get into what Kelly does:
“My husband has gone full keto, which I don’t mind telling you is something I could never do,” Ripa explained. “I just don’t have that level of discipline. 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 workout, so I feel like I’m allowed. I’m 48, I’m entitled and I’m eating whatever I want to eat.”
She continues on by stating:
“Mark and I used to have peanut butter and jelly as a bedtime snack,” she added. “I’m not sure why. Even as a kid, I didn’t really like it, but now, here I am.”
And Women’s Health Mag actually tells us a surprising part of her diet after confirming what US Mag told us:
Another part of her daily diet? Bulletproof coffee (yep, the keto favorite…even though, again, Kelly’s decidedly not keto). Kelly makes her Bulletproof coffee with the “darkest roast coffee” she can get, a spoonful of Organic Valley ghee, and two shots of espresso. “It fills me up and I feel satiated, so it keeps me from being ravenous during the show,” she said. (P.S., Kelly doesn’t eat before her show taping.)
We have more information about Bulletproof Coffee except in the form of what we refer to as SuperHuman Fuel.
Women’s Health Mag also borrows some information from Bon Appetit sharing:
So what does Kelly eat? You know, besides all the carbs? According to Bon Appetit, Kelly likes to snack on nuts, dried fruit, and peanut butter ThinkThin high protein bars–and her late-night snack of choice is a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
“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 said. Which, let’s be honest, sounds delicious AF.
We see a lot of celebs opt for a sustainable approach like this.
That’s why our Academy Nutrition Classes (Monks, Minimalists, SuperHumans, Vikings, Spartans, Hunter Gatherers, Greek Gods, Samurais) revolve around helping you find the specific diet that is right FOR YOU.
Of course, there are a lot of reasons to HAVE the strict guidelines.
We’ve seen a lot of celebs opt for specific restrictions.
For example: Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart incorporate 80/20 dieting with big weekly cheat meals, Hugh Jackman, Benedict Cumberbatch and Terry Crews utilize intermittent fasting(something I use daily as well), Mustafa Shakir and Madelaine Petsch are vegans, Brandon Routh and Frank Grillo opt for paleo, and tons of others utilize their own variations as well.
And, that’s just to name a few celebs from each, by the way.
You can check out our Nutrition Pillars for more information and articles on all of the above and more.
And then we built The SHJ Legacy Program to help you achieve it!

Kelly Ripa Workout Routine Research
Kelly is pretty open about her workout style, which is mainly cardio based.
She loves working out with husband, Mark, which US Mag says:
Ripa noted that she and Consuelos love exercising together on vacation and it was “a nice escape” taking yoga classes in the Bahamas for their wedding anniversary getaway in 2017.
BUT, for the most part, Ripa tells us this about her regularly scheduled training:
“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 continued. “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.”
So we’re working with cardio dance classes, SoulCycle classes, and then running outdoors.
If you noticed, Ripa mentioned taking her dance cardio classes four to five days a week AND doing SoulCycle on the weekend.
That means she’s training 5-7 days a week, on top of her busy schedule.
Hope you ladies are ready to step it up a notch if you want that slim and toned physique like the nearly 50 year old Ripa!
Well, I’m ready to schedule it, but it’s your job to get it done!
