America's Fittest Chefs

Slide 1 of 11

Laurent Gras

Executive chef, L2O, Chicago

F&W Best New Chef 2002 Laurent Gras's name crudely translates to "Fat Larry" in French—wholly ironic, considering he carries an incredible two percent body fat (the average is about 13 to 17 percent for an adult male). To maintain his extraordinary physique, each week Gras cycles up to 400 miles—including one mega-long 100-mile ride—even in winter.
