Padma Lakshmi Gains Weight Each Top Chef Season!

padma lakshmi top chef weight gain

Padma Lakshmi has the best job ever… while it's happening.

You see, Padma is the host of Top Chef, and she gets to eat all that amazing food. The only problem is that she ends up gaining 10-15 pounds while filming!

THEN SHE HAS TO LOSE IT!

Noooooo! That sounds so awful — but not all is lost: she has a pretty great secret weapon:

“I’m lucky. I have a fast metabolism, I’m tall, and my digestive tract is ironclad and can really take a beating. Having been a model for 15 years, I also know a thing or two about how to dress if I’ve put on a few pounds.

"I usually gain between 10 and 15 pounds over six weeks each season. Then I spend 12 weeks working it off. But it’s worth it. When the timer goes off and the food is ready, I’m really excited to eat.”

Like we said: best job ever!

Plus, we bet it's awesome to know all those chefs personally. You know, for favors and events…

LOLz!
