“Jersey Shore” star Vinny Guadagnino has dropped the weight, thanks to the keto diet!
Vinny has been documenting his weight loss journey on his Keto Guido Instagram account. Earlier this week, he took part in the How Hard Did Aging Hit You Challenge, posting a pic from 2009 and 2019. He said, “As you know from all the before and after pics on this profile, I’ve had some fat unhealthy years in between ... eating natural fat, protein, and veggies instead of processed sugar and carbs has brought me back to 21.”

Taking part in this #howharddidaginghityouchallenge ..As you know from all the before and after pics on this profile , I’ve had some fat unhealthy years in between ... eating natural fat , protein, and veggies instead of processed sugar and carbs has brought me back to 21 #ketoguido _ PS - for those of you who are confused and think that I am saying I was fat in 2009 you are incorrect. I’m saying I looked good and young in 2009 and AFTERWARDS had some fat years (you can see those pics in other posts on this page ) ... and living this way of life has brought me back to feeling good like i did when I was 21 in 2009
As for how he shed the pounds, Vinny revealed in another post that he stopped eating “bread, pasta, sugar, fried food, low fat products.” His diet now consists of “bacon, full fat cheese, avocados, fatty steak, fatty fish, greens,” and “No steroids, no supplements,” and he works out.
On his Instagram, Guadagnino defended his decision to eat meat, saying, “I do think that eating quality red meat is healthy in moderation.” He added, “The world holds a perception and standard that red meat will cause cancer, clog your arteries, jump out from under your bed and eat you ... but from the majority of research that I’ve come across, I’ve found that these epidemiological studies are decades old , and didn’t factor in any other lifestyle choices that these people were doing.”

High Carb Low Fat on the left (2015) .... Low Carb High Fat on the right (today)... and people still claim that meat causes more inflammation than sugar 🤦🏻♂️... maybe for some but not for this #ketoguido. - Going carnivore for a week really helped my body get back into things . Another finding was that I barely passed gas on carnivore and yesterday i had an Atkins bar and a little grain free carbs and have been stinking up my house 😂.. not sure what that means but I think it’s that my body was running like a well oiled machine on just meat and once a little carbs and sweetener was introduced it went started buggin
Vinny has been working on his weight loss transformation since 2016, and has lost at least 50 lbs. Last year, he wrote, “I’ve discovered the fountain of youth. When I ate sugars and grains I was 50 lbs. heavier and looked 10 years older.”
Jenna Jameson is another celebrity who endorses the keto diet. She has lost a whopping 80 lbs. since the birth of her daughter Batel in April 2017.
Celebrity fitness guru Jillian Michaels recently criticized the diet, telling Women’s Health, “I don’t understand. Like, why would anyone think this is a good idea?"
She insisted, “Your cells, your macro molecules, are literally made up of protein, fat, carbohydrates, nucleic acids. When you do not eat one of the three macro nutrients — those three things I just mentioned — you’re starving yourselves. Those macro nutrients serve a very important purpose for your overall health and wellbeing. Each and every one of them.”
