There's no denying that Amy Robach is in great physical shape. Not only is she a fitness enthusiast and an avid runner – but she also follows a strict diet. 

The former Good Morning America star, 50, might have ended up with a less busy schedule after news of her affair with T.J. Holmes broke and they were forced to leave the show, but she likely still makes sure to eat well in order to fuel her "busy days". But what exactly does Amy eat in a day? Keep reading to find out…

What is Amy Robach's diet?

Following her cancer diagnosis in 2013 after undergoing a live mammogram on her show, Amy turned to the keto diet, which is a high fat, low carb diet which involves burning ketones (fat) rather than glucose (sugar). The TV star also practices intermittent fasting and has described her strict diet as "freedom" because it made her feel more in control of her health and helped her regain confidence in her body.

"I'm proud of it, I work hard for it. I'm 47 years old, had two children, and battled cancer, I have scars to prove all of those things. And I do love the body I'm in," she said on the Bulletproof Radio podcast with Dave Asprey earlier this year. "What and how I eat makes me feel my best and fuels me for busy days as a working mum," she previously told People.

What does Amy Robach eat for breakfast?

Amy's diet is filled with healthy fats that come from things like meat, fatty fish, nuts, avocados, and olive oil. She gets her protein from beef, poultry, and seafood while carbs come in the form of non-starchy vegetables.

Alongside making sure she drinks plenty of water throughout the day, Amy's morning meal usually consists of two cups of coffee with a three-egg omelette with ham, cheddar cheese, and some green onions, according to a diet plan she previously revealed to People. Little fruit is eaten on the keto diet but berries are acceptable in small quantities, which is why Amy will snack on a cup of them following her main morning meal.

What does Amy Robach eat for lunch?

Amy has a vegetable garden at her New York home so grows a lot of her own fruits and vegetables which she will use to make a salad for lunch. Arugula is said to be a favourite of hers, which she will mix with cherry tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella, and a handful of pine nuts. She may sometimes add protein such as chicken.

If she's feeling peckish mid-morning, Amy will reach for a cup of mixed nuts and might even indulge in two squares of dark chocolate. If she does treat herself, Amy admitted on the Bulletproof Radio podcast that she will compensate by fasting afterward to kickstart ketosis. "When I do indulge, I tell myself, is it worth a 20 hour fast?" she said.
