Kelly Ripa Injury Matched By Mark Consuelos, Halts Workouts, But Ripa’s Detox Cleanse Prevents Weight Gain [Photos]

Kelly Ripa has an injury that happened in a dance class. But the bubbly Kelly isn’t letting it get her down. Instead, Ripa joked about her husband’s injury that happened almost at the same time, reported the New York Daily News.

After the Live! With Kelly and Michael co-star hurt her left foot, hubby Mark Consuelos hurt his own left calf. Kelly’s and Mark’s social media shares summed up the surprising coincidence.

“Are you kidding me right now?????????? WTF?” wrote Ripa about the duplicate injury.

“Can’t make this s–t up. Small calf tear,” posted Consuelos.

Kelly revealed that she is almost always in an exercise class in explaining how she broke her foot.

“I was in a dance class, like I typically, usually am, and somebody had left a weight on the floor. Usually what happens is you do dancing and then you do weights and then you put your weights back on your mat,” said Ripa.

Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos share injury.

For fitness-dedicated Kelly, being forbidden to work out might cause some stress for the slim talk show co-host.

As the Inquisitr reported, Valerie Bertinelli revealed that after a successful 40-pound weight loss, she broke her own foot and regained 15 pounds.

After the injury and the halt to workouts, Bertinelli was upset when the scale rose higher and higher. But she resolved to stop fat-shaming herself.

“I started thinking, ‘Why do I feel so much shame? Because the cameras are on me? Because the paparazzi can’t wait to get a picture of me looking like I’ve gained a few pounds?'” questioned Valerie. “We have to take the shame out of it! It’s not fair.”

So what will Kelly do to keep off the weight despite being sidelined from her beloved dance classes? Ripa recently went on a new detox diet cleanse, reported E! News.

Kelly Ripa follows a high alkaline diet cleanse.

Rather than the typical weight loss diet cleanse that’s limited to liquids, Kelly’s AlkaMind “Get Off Your Acid” cleanse focuses on consuming high-alkaline foods, said the diet’s creator, Dr. Daryl Gioffre, who crafted the diet cleanse.

“It was always my goal to create this 7-day cleanse that wasn’t going to do all those things that people think about cleanses,” explained Dr. Gioffre. “Everyone thinks you’re going to be starving all the week. And you have to drink this green, nasty bug juice, or you’re going to be in the bathroom all week, and you’re going to be miserable.”

Although Ripa can’t work out, she can still follow the diet cleanse, which eliminates processed foods high in sugar that Dr. Gioffre says cause weight gain. Instead, the cleanse focuses on kale and spinach, as well as other dark leafy greens; nuts, seeds, avocados, and quinoa and other whole grains while eliminating meat and dairy.
