Anna Kaiser is responsible for shaping some of the best bodies in Hollywood, including Shakira, Kelly Ripa, and Alicia Keys. The celebrity trainer, creator of the popular NYC-based fitness brand, Anna Kaiser Studios, recently dished about her diet to Body Network, revealing everything from her favorite foods to eating habits. Here is everything she eats in a week to stay healthy and fit.

She Doesn't Usually Eat Before a Workout


"I try not to eat an hour before a workout, but if I do need to eat, I reach for simple carbs like a green juice or a piece of something that's going to give me energy for the session," says Kaiser. "I also drink electrolytes about 30 minutes before a session to help replenish the fluids lost in my workout."

Protein Post Workout


After a workout, Kaiser fuels up on lean protein, "no less than 20g of protein like grilled chicken, eggs, beef jerky," she says. She also takes branch chain amino acids (collagen, BCAA's supplements) and might eat an egg, which makes a "perfect quality carb/protein ratio," she says.

Food Before Coffee

"I try to eat before drinking coffee in the mornings, but I have also been cutting back on caffeine lately," Kaiser adds. "I've been gravitating more towards this Dandy Blend that's caffeine-free and so delicious. I also really enjoy Four Sigmatic's Lion's Mane and Chaga Mushroom coffee."


Spirulina powder and tablets in the bowl

Kaiser also takes supplements. "I'm taking acai supplements for their anti-inflammatory properties in addition to Gaia's fermented beet and maca supplements that help with energy," she says.

Intermittent Fasting

The clock is at 12:00 noon for lunch in a wooden dish.

Kaiser infuses intermittent fasting into her week. "I will practice intermittent fasting on the weekends and maybe twice during the week but not on days where I have a challenging workout and need the fuel," she says.

Her Favorite Salad

Anna has a favorite salad that she eats regularly. "Start with chopped spinach, add diced tomatoes, cucumbers and hearts of palm, add kalamata olives, grilled chicken, hemp hearts, fresh lemon juice, drizzle of olive oil, and salt & pepper," she says. "I make and eat this salad at least twice a week."

Green Juice

"I make sure to drink a green juice about 3x a week. I start with a scoop of Alkamind's Acid-Kicking Greens and mix it with macadamia milk, berries, collagen peptides, stevia or 1/2 a banana, and ground flax seeds," Anna explains
