Padma Lakshmi on Thursday took to her Instagram page to showcase her weight gain by donning a blue two-piece swimsuit and said she was getting round around the hips and thighs.
Lakshmi is currently filming Top Chef and the model had previously revealed that she tended to gain weight while filming the cooking reality show.
"Week 5 of filming and hips getting rounder, thighs getting thicker...#topchefmemories #eatingmywaythroughcolorado," Lakshmi captioned the photo.
But netizens soon pointed out that the weight gain was not noticeable and that she looked dazzling in the photograph. Y"eah, right Padma! Like anyone is thinking 'There goes that rounded hipped, thick thighed behemoth,'" wrote one fan in the comments section. "That's not round or thick sorry keep trying tho" added another.

Although Laksmi is a professional foodie, she doesn't eat out that often and recently revealed that she loves to cook when she is at home.
"I do venture to many of the small farm stands because we cook at home about 98 percent of the time," Lakshmi told Beach magazine. "It's a chance to have a slower-paced, idyllic life."
She also added that it take a lot of willpower to resist cookies. "I used to have to drive around the original shop, instead of passing by it, for fear I would stop in and eat my body weight in their chocolate chip cookies," she said.
