Padma Lakshmi, the host of Bravo's Top Chef series, talked about a sexy series of projects she has undertaken on The Today Show Tuesday.

The 39-year-old Indian-American model/cookbook scribe/TV personality said she worked out like crazy for a forthcoming nude photoshoot for Allure magazine, though said she didn't consider it a true nude shoot.

"You don't see anything, even in the magazine," she said. "It was just the way I was lying."

Discussing a fast food commercial in which she very seductively gobbles a cheeseburger, a blushing Lakshmi told hosts Kathy Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb: "That's all my jewelery."

She told them that the commercials air for two separate brands, Carl's Jr. on the West Coast, and Hardee's on the East Coast.

Padma, whenever you're around, it's always a happy meal.
