Former adult-film star Jenna Jameson credits the low-carb, high-fat ketogenic diet for her stunning 80-pound post-baby weight loss and fit bikini body.

Jameson gave birth to her third child in April 2017. Before that, Jenna had twins in 2009.

The 44-year-old mom said she started to accumulate a lot of body fat — especially around the stomach — after she turned 40. That was exacerbated after she got pregnant in 2016.

I think #keto cracks the code to get rid of belly fat. After I turned 40 whenever I gained any weight it went straight to my gut, then I got pregnant at 43 and BAM I had a permanent tire. When I started the #ketodiet on April 22 of this year, the first fat to go was my waist. Miracles. Straight up organic miracle. I felt no bloating anymore and quite frankly, I feel snatched. 😁 FYI I eat a lot of organic veggies and fish. My meat consumption has lessened lately. My scale says 123 but I feel strong and energized. Ladies and gents… comment down below your problem areas. Mine? Tummy and arms. Ps how cute is Batelli? 💋#ketotransformation #weightloss #weightlossjourney #beforeandafter #beforeandafterweightloss

Jenna Jameson: Keto Gave Me Flat Abs

Shortly after giving birth in April 2017, Jameson began following the ketogenic diet, which is a low-carb, high-fat, moderate-protein diet.

Jenna says she started experiencing immediate weight loss without hunger. This is because it takes the body a lot longer to digest fat than carbs.

“I think keto cracks the code to get rid of belly fat,” Jameson wrote on Instagram (see above). “After I turned 40, whenever I gained any weight it went straight to my gut. Then I got pregnant at 43 and BAM I had a permanent tire.”

Jenna says the keto diet was effective at melting away her belly fat while curbing cravings.

Yes, I’m an IVF warrior. Our sweet Batelli was conceived through modern medicine. Truth be told, IVF is one of the hardest things I’ve endured. So much emotion, stress, fear, pressure, pain and anxiety. The hormones wreak havoc on your body for months prior to transfer and the fear of the unknown is encompassing. I was 43 when we began our IVF for Batel. I felt I had little time. I felt it may be my last chance. I knew what I was getting into since I had a successful twin IVF pregnancy. But I was MUCH younger then. Well, after everything we ended up with one very special PGD tested, perfect embryo… my little Batelli. She was worth every shot, every cry and every push. I felt compelled to talk about my age, IVF and how you can do this too. Never lose hope. Always trust in G-d. He has beautiful plans for you. #ivfjourney #ivf #ivfsuccess #ivfwarrior #ivfcommunity #ivfpregnancy

From 180 Pounds to 107 Lbs

Jenna — who weighed 187 pounds while pregnant — lost 62 pounds in the first five months of her keto program.

Fast-forward to the present. And the 5-foot-7 Jameson now weighs 107 pounds, bringing her total weight loss to 80 pounds.

Jameson has chronicled her stunning transformation in dramatic before-and-after photos posted to Instagram.

Keto Diet Has Been Used Clinically to Aid Diabetics

Weight loss experts say drastically slashing your carbohydrate intake forces your body to burn fat for fuel instead of carbs, as HVY reported.

Keto proponents also say the low-carb, high-fat, moderate-protein diet gives you consistent energy by eliminating the blood-sugar spikes that high-carb diets cause.

Fitness experts say in addition to its effectiveness as a weight loss tool, low-carb diets like keto can eliminate the need for diabetes drugs because they immediately reduce high blood sugar, according to 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.

Other celebrity proponents of the ketogenic diet included reality TV star Kim Kardashian, who credited it for her 70-pound post-baby weight loss both in 2013 and 2015.

Kardashian has since abandoned keto in favor of a portion-controlled, low-calorie diet, citing her love of carbs.
