Justin Bieber has a huge crush on Kelly Ripa and posted a sexy bikini photo of Ripa on Instagram July 14 o show his appreciation.
“Wow Kelly makes me feel some type of way ?? ,” Justin, 21, wrote on Instagram. “No disrespect. I know she’s married! #bigcrush.”
A flattered Ripa said Bieber’s crush is a “cry for help.” “I do believe this is a cry for help,” Kelly joked July 15 on Live With Kelly and Michael.
“I’m worried. Justin, if you need me, I am here. You call me, we will work it out.”
Ripa, 44, said Bieber’s shout-out gave her street cred with her daughter, who now thinks she’s cool. “Thank you, Justin, you really gave me tremendous street cred with my daughter,” said Kelly.
All joking aside, Ripa has a superfit bikini body, thanks to daily exercise and an alkaline diet.
Kelly recently did an alkaline diet cleanse after suffering repeated injuries such as stress fractures and pulled muscles. She swears her low-acid diet has dramatically improved her chronic muscle pain.
“I’ve been working with this guy. His name is Dr. Darryl Geoffrey, and he is a chiropractor, but also a nutritionist,” Ripa said on Live! With Kelly and Michael. “And he put me on this cleanse.
“It’s an antacid high-alkaline cleanse, and it has changed my life. I swear, I think it’s responsible for me not being in pain.”
Kelly, a fitness fanatic who works out every day, said unlike other cleanses that call for severe calorie restriction, her Alkaline Diet enables her to eat a lot.
“You’re not hungry. You eat,” said Ripa. “I actually eat much more on this cleanse than I do in my actual life, but it’s what you eat and how you eat it.”
Kelly joins a growing number of Hollywood celebrities who tout the weight loss and anti-aging health benefits of the Alkaline Diet.
Supermodel Elle Macpherson and actress Kate Hudson both credit the alkaline diet for their slammin’ bikini bodies.
The alkaline diet includes plenty of fresh green vegetables, fruits, beans, lentils, spices, seeds and nuts. The theory is that eating a diet high in alkaline-producing foods will minimize acid buildup in our bodies (which fuels inflammation, aging, and weight gain), as Celebrity Health & Fitness previously reported.
When you ingest too many acidic foods, your pH levels get disrupted, causing weight gain and disease, said Dr. Stephan Domenig, author of The Alkaline Cure.
“Many people start the day with coffee followed by toast and jam, cake for morning tea, then meat and a tiny amount of veg for dinner — all of these are acid-forming,” said Domenig.
The alkaline diet can transform your body and mind so you can embrace total health and well-being, said Marta Tuchowska, author of How to Lose Massive Weight with the Alkaline Diet.
