Padma Lakshmi Shows Her Bare, Sculpted Abs and Credits This Kind of Workout

The Bravo's Top Chef host looks so strong and fit. 

Introducing Top Chef Season 16's Chefs

Could this be the same woman who eats bacon and swigs bourbon for a living? Padma Lakshmi, host of Bravo's Top Chef (which takes place in Kentucky this season) just showed off her abs in a picture that saw her wearing jeans, a bra, and an impressive amount of muscle mass. Now, we knew that Padma was fit, but this photo proves just how buff she is. 

Padma shared the photo on December 7, and had to give a shout-out to the workout that helped make her look so sculpted. (Sadly, she didn't get that way on Southern-style fare alone.) "As the Queen Mother [Rupal] says: 'You betta work!'" Padma wrote. She went on to thank her trainer for "kicking my butt" three times a week, and added the hashtag: #pilates. 

This woman is serious #goals. We're so inspired, we may even be willing to try to hold a plank. Never say never ...
