Hosting Top Chef has many perks, but staying super-slim after a season sampling an array of dishes is not one of them.
Luckily, Padma Lakshmi doesn't mind one bit – and even admitted she goes up two dress sizes at the end of every season.
"I love food way too much to starve myself just to look good," the single mom told Fitness for its November/December cover story, out Oct. 29. "I will put in the work at the gym so I can enjoy what I eat."
