Chrissy Teigen is baring it all, and she looks better than ever.

Although the supermodel – and famous foodie – has a flawless physique, she admits that keeping it that way is hard work! “I used to take pride in the fact I didn’t have to work out, and then I hit that age where you have to,” she said in September’s Naked Issue of Women’s Health UK (on sale Thursday, July 30). “I want to drink champagne and have hearty dinners, so I would rather work out for an hour and be able to do what I want.”

Teigen, who has been posting drool-worthy Instagram shots as she preps for her first cookbook, still tries to keep the indulgences within reason. “I’ve always had to watch myself. My family is not naturally thin and we put on weight quickly. I find low-carb works for me,” she said.

So, with all that’s on her plate, when does Mrs. John Legend think she’ll have time for babies? “I’m waiting for things to slow down, but things don’t seem to be slowing down, ever,” Teigen said. “People will know as soon as I’m pregnant because I’ll stop drinking.”

She’s always had to watch herself, she’s not naturally thin, yet she used to take pride in the fact that she didn’t have to work out? Which one is it?

I like this girl , i do like to indulge in the good stuff , good champagne , wine , foi gras and all the goodies , but moderation and a lot working
out or i , or I will balloon like a cow . Hopefully her cookbook is about Thai food . However iif you are not a chef why a cook book??

Other than a nice body- I don’t see the appeal – her face is not pretty at all! plus she ruins it everytime she opens her trash mouth!

This girl is becoming like a Kardashian with all the stories written about her. I don’t see the big deal.

Chrissy grew up in our neighborhood and was friends with my daughter . She’s a genuine comedian, and a truly intelligent and sincere person. She never was stuck up about her beauty. We wish you much continued success and happiness!

Nobody is body shaming her. We ARE face shaming her because she’s not a model. She’s a maid somewhere.

Honestly, I’ve never thought she was the most gorgeous person ever, but I do appreciate her honesty when it comes to her body. She’s posted un-photoshopped pictures of the stretch marks on her thighs. She’s honest about not being naturally thin – I also went through a period where I never had to work out, but was somehow always a size 5/7. Now, since I’m in my 30s, the weight doesn’t come off nearly as easily. She’s actually a refreshing change from the stick-thin models and actresses who make it seem like it should be so easy.

I think she is crazy, but in a good way. Chrissy is never takes herself to seriously and I like that. I am kind of tired of seeing her butt, but (hehehe) she is comfortable in her skin and I also like that. I was one who could eat what I wanted with no problems. Now at 33 my body so OH NO! so I get what she is saying.
