Padma Lakshmi ‘Men Don’t Want Skinny Girls’ Fitness November 2013!

resizedimagePadma Lakshmi in Fitness November 2013: Men Don’t Want Skinny Girls. She is an Indian/American cookbook author and television host. She has been taking some time away from being a judge on the hit series Top Chef. She has been captured by Jeff olson and she dished out about her workout secrets and revealed how men reacted to her curves while dropping her pregnancy weight.

On her pregnancy weight:

“It took 13 months to get the weight off. I went from a size 4 to a size 14 when I was pregnant. What’s interesting though, is that, in my experience, men don’t want skinny girls. When I was a size 14, I got much more attention from men than I do now.”

On her diet:

“I follow a clean diet: no meat, no sweets, no alcohol, no cheese, no fried food, no wheat. And I work out five days a week, boxing three days, lifting weights the other two.”

On her fitness regime:

“To maintain my weight I strength-train, use the treadmill and elliptical, and box three times a week. I also do planks at home and jump rope. I carry a jump rope with me everywhere, especially when I’m working. It’s a great way to squeeze in a quick workout and get your heart rate up when you don’t have time to go to the gym.”

On her ultimate food weaknesses:

“I have a lot of them. Pizza, nachos, cheese, potato chips, fried chicken. I believe in everything in moderation. I never say, ‘No, I can’t have any of that.’ I have it and enjoy it! After i finished this photo shoot, I’m going out for pizza, and I’m literally going to take down a whole large pie by myself.”
