is revealing her secret to staying in great shape while also taste testing every delicious dish on Top Chef.

This Is How Many Calories Some Olympic Athletes Eat a Day
<p>The chef for the U.S. Ski and Snowboard team makes individualized eating plans.</p>With the 2018 Winter Olympics around the corner, everyone's eyes are turning to Pyeongchang and all the Olympic athletes set to compete. One big question on everyone's mind — aside from who will take home the gold, of course? What are the athletes eating? Almost as thrilling as the games themselves is considering how many calories an athlete pushing him or herself to max each day has to consume.
“I’m at my skinniest right now because I finished filming the show for a few months. I have clothes from a size four to a size fourteen, from when I was pregnant, and go up a size,” she said. “No one is looking at your tag. It’s better that it fits you well — everyone tries to squeeze in one size of jeans, it just makes you look like a sausage.”
She continued, “But beyond that to get the weight off it’s really hard, there are no tricks, it’s just eating healthy. I don’t drink alcohol. I don’t eat fried food. I don’t eat red meat. I don’t eat any dairy, except low-fat cottage cheese and non-fat yogurt. I don’t eat sweets. Oh, and I don’t eat flour.”
While it may sound tough, the host insists her diet is pretty simple to follow.
“I eat a lot of vegetables and fruit. I eat fish and chicken and shellfish. I also eat a lot of lentils and beans,” she said. “When I’m not on the show, I’m pretty plant-based. I was raised as a vegetarian in India and in America. We had a vegetarian home. I didn’t really start eating meat until I was a teenager, so I’m used to eating like that. It’s hard for your body to process meat.”
While she’s hard at work filming the hit Bravo show, Lakshmi said she gives herself “license to eat.”
“For legal reasons, I have to make sure I try everything so I just give myself license,” she said. “As women, we’re conditioned to do everything, and we can do everything you just can’t always do it at once.”
