Former porn star Jenna Jameson credits the low-carb, high-fat, moderate-protein ketogenic diet for her 57-pound weight loss and fit bikini body at age 44.
Jameson, who gave birth to her third child in April 2017, posted her weight loss update on Instagram, where she showed off her flat abs and slimmed-down bikini body.
“On the right I weight 187,” Jenna wrote on Instagram. “On the left I’m a strong 130.”
Jameson said in addition to losing weight, she feels sharper mentally as a result of her “ketogenic lifestyle.”
Halle Berry and Kim Kardashian Love Keto Diet
Jenna said she accelerated her post-baby weight loss by cutting out pasta, potatoes, rice, bread, and all refined sugars from her diet. She stuck to an organic ketogenic diet that emphasizes meat, fish, and vegetables, as well as healthy unprocessed fats.
As the Inquisitr previously reported, the keto diet has become a favorite among Hollywood beauties like Halle Berry and Kim Kardashian.
The ketogenic diet has been touted for promoting rapid weight loss and has also been used clinically to curb epileptic seizures in children.
Drastically reducing carb intake forces your body to burn fat (instead of carbs) for fuel.
Thought I’d post a #motivationmonday #beforeandafter of my total weightloss. On the right I weight 187. On the left I’m a strong 130. I was lethargic and struggled with the easiest of tasks like walking in the beach sand with Batelli. ???? I felt slow mentally and physically. I took the pic on the right for a body positive post I was going to do and decided against it because I felt anything but fucking positive. I’m now a little under 4 months on the #ketodiet and it’s not only given me physical results, I feel happier, smarter, and much more confident. I also want to let y’all know how much your amazing support means to me. I know you loved me heavy, and now… but your journeys inspire me to keep inspiring you. Thank you for going on this journey with me. I love you guys! #weightlossjourney #weightlosstransformation #ketotransformation #fitmom
The 5-foot-7 Jenna Jameson said she weighed 187 pounds during her pregnancy and has since lost 57 pounds.
This has been a strong ???????? week for my Keto lifestyle results. I’m no longer really losing fat, I’m tightening. I see and feel the biggest difference in my arms and back. When I was out of shape, I felt really thick through my core and trap and arm area. That’s finally starting to go. I really feel weight in our arms is a hormonal thing. I can say this to all of you ladies wondering how I stay committed to no carbs. Well, after the first week or so… the cravings subside and your body adjusts. I get sweet cravings here and there, but I usually push past them by drinking a Fresca. Oh and by the way, my scale number hasn’t budged. I’m holding at 130. Because I KNOW y’all cuties will ask… my insanely cute slides are from @haute_acorn #weightlossjourney #ketotransformation #ketodiet #weeklyweighin #fitmoms
Jameson said her goal weight is 125 pounds. Jenna is 44-years-old and still has an enviable bikini body after three pregnancies.
Proponents of the keto diet say it fuels weight loss without hunger and reduces inflammation by preventing blood-sugar spikes.
This is what 30 pound weight loss looks like. ???? this took me a little over two months. I cut out bread, pasta, potatoes, rice, all refined sugar, no snacks like chips and crackers. I rarely ate out. I made sure I only put WHOLE foods in my body. What I mean by Whole Foods is, nothing with additives. All fresh organic foods. Meat fish and veggies. I never felt my weight defined me, but my health DID. I felt lethargic, sad when I looked in the mirror and didn’t recognize myself. My ankles hurt. I struggled up the stairs carrying Batel. I couldn’t go on like that anymore. I’m here to say you can do it… it’s possible. #weightlossjourney #keto #carbfree #momlife #bodytransformation #bodyafterbaby
Experts say in addition to its effectiveness as a weight-loss tool, low-carb diets like the keto plan can eliminate the need for diabetes drugs because they work immediately to reduce high blood sugar, according to a report published in the medical journal Nutrition.
“Dietary carbohydrate restriction reliably reduces high blood glucose, leads to the reduction or elimination of medication, and has never shown side effects comparable to those seen in many drugs,” said obesity expert Dr. Eric Westman.
Like Jenna Jameson, Victoria’s Secret supermodel Adriana Lima has credited the low-carb, high-fat ketogenic diet for her rapid post-baby weight loss and hot bikini body, as the Inquisitr has reported.
Adriana’s diet typically focuses on high-quality proteins like meat and chicken, and she snacks on low-carb fruits like blueberries and blackberries.
When she’s training for the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, Lima said she drastically reduces her carb intake to get as lean as possible.
