Washington, Oct 7: Padma Lakshmi, who manages to look skinny despite eating all that delicious food, has opened up about her diet and exercise regimen, while revealing that she goes up two dress sizes after every season of show 'Top Chef'.
The "Top Chef" star told Fitness magazine that she loves food way too much to starve myself just to look good, but put in the work at the gym so she can enjoy what she eats, the Huffington Post reported.
The 43-year-old said that after each season, she follows "a clean diet: no meats, no sweets, no alcohol, no cheese, no fried food, no wheat", while working out five days a week, boxing three days and lifting weights the other two.
Talking about her pregnancy weight, she said that she went from a size four to a size 14 when carrying baby girl Krishna around three years back and it took her 13 months to shed all those extra pounds. (ANI)
