While we're getting fatter taking advantage of Miami Spice, the chefs behind those meals are slimming down for a good cause. As part of the Fit to Fight challenge, 12 local toques have committed to lose weight while raising funds to benefit Live to Fight, a nonprofit that supports individuals with life-threatening illnesses. After their last weigh-in August 4, some are already down almost 20 pounds!

In addition to competing to drop the most weight, each chef is tasked with raising a minimum of $1,500. Many are hosting events and touting restaurant specials to help meet their goals and promote healthful living.
