Chrissy Teigen covers up her completely nude body on the cover of Women’s Health UK‘s Naked issue, on newsstands today.
Here’s what the 29-year-old model had to share with the mag:
On gaining weight while writing her cookbook: “Working on the cookbook, I put on around 11lb in five weeks, despite doing regular workouts. Before, I was always thin and just had to tone up, but now I’m trying to keep that extra layer [of fat] off. I’m having a tough time getting back to my pre-cookbook weight. It’s only 5lb, but it’s frustrating… My tummy has always been my problem. I’ve never seen an ab, no matter how many crunches I do.”
On her friendship with Kim Kardashian: “Kim is lovely. I’ll email her and she gets right back to me. It makes me feel like garbage because I’m like, ‘I’m 10% as busy as you and I don’t get back to people.’ They are the most beautiful family. I look at them and think, ‘How do I get this?’”
On eating what she wants: “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. 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. 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.”
