Chrissy Teigen On Her Non-Existent Abs (And Bum)

Chrissy Teigen has got totally naked for Women’s Health magazine. And obviously, she looks incredible.

The Sports Illustrated model is pictured on the cover of the Naked Issue with a wild mane of wavy dip-dyed hair and a huge smile as shee displays her awe-inspiring bod. But don’t think she doesn’t work for it… 

‘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 told the magazine. ‘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.’

We are so on board with this mantra, Chrissy.

The 29-year-old food-lover, whose Instagram is full of tasty-looking dinners and snacks, is such a whizz in the kitchen that she’s written her own cookbook. And she admits that it takes work to balance her love of eating with her day job.

‘I’ve always had to watch myself’, Chrissy admitted. ‘My family is not naturally thin and we put on weight quickly. I find low-carb works for me.’

But despite being one of the most gorgeous women on the planet, and boasting a super refreshing, carefree attitude to match, even Chrissy can’t escape those pesky body woes entirely. 

‘Working on the cookbook, I put on around 11lb in five weeks, despite doing regular workouts’, she said. ‘Before, I was always thin and just had to tone up, but now I’m trying to keep that extra layer [of fat] off.’ 

She continued: ‘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.’ Those abs look just fine to us, lady!

So if she had the chance to imrpove one area of her body, which would it be? Well, refreshingly, Teigen would make herself bigger! 

‘I would love to have a little fat on my sides so I can be sexy, curvy’, she revealed. ‘I’d love a big butt. But I just can’t get there.’

And as for her sweet marriage with John Legend, well, let’s just say we shouldn’t expect kids too soon from the chaotically busy duo.

On kids, Chrissy said: ‘I’m waiting for things to slow down, but things don’t seem to be slowing down, ever, so I think, ‘Just have one and deal with it.’ I’d love to have an excuse to be bigger. People will know as soon as I’m pregnant because I’ll stop drinking.’
