101 Hot Bodies: 75-51
Padma Lakshmi #60 -- Celebuzz's 101 Hot Bodies
As the host of Bravo's Top Chef, eating plenty of rich, decadent foods is a job requirement for Padma Lakshmi. "I'm judging whether a dish is executed well, not how healthy it is," the TV host told Redbook. "The chefs put their heart and soul in it, so I want to do my part passionately as well." To avoid weight gain, the star - who turns 42 next month - turns to boxing, a sport she's been practicing for 10 years now. In addition to hitting the speed bag, Lakshmi jumps rope and does calisthenics 2-3 days a week to benefit not only her figure but her complexion as well. “I think that sweating a lot and getting your circulation going influences your skin a lot," she told People magazine. "[It] helps everything rejuvenate itself."
