Starting the keto diet means changing your mindset — and your pantry, according to Jenna Jameson.
The former adult film star, 44, successfully dropped a whopping 80 lbs. on the low-carb, high-fat plan, and shared her tips for beginning the keto diet on Instagram.
Jameson said that being in the right headspace is the first step.
“I think my most frequently asked question is ‘Where do I start with keto?’ ” she wrote on Sunday. “First, get right in your mind! Be positive and visualize success!”
Next, Jameson said people should clean out their kitchen.
“Get rid of everything with hidden sugars and all the processed nasty garbage you’ve been poisoning yourself with,” she said. “By the way, I look at sugar like poison; it helps me refuse to eat it!”
I have officially lost 80 lbs. . I’m going to give a little updated menu because it’s my most requested thing ever! Wake up at 8- have 2 Nescafé coffees with sugar free creamer and sweetener. 11 am I make 3 scrambled eggs with basil cheese I get from Costco (in a block) I share them with Batelli. I then put Batel down for her nap at 1:30 and I snack on cottage cheese and have a fresca. Batel wakes up around 3:30 and I make her lunch. Yes, I make her carbs lol she isn’t keto. I usually make myself a HUGE bowl of arugula salad with vinaigrette dressing and LOTS of Parmesan cheese. Then at about 5 I grill myself a big ribeye steak with asparagus broiled in avocado oil. Then my fast begins! So many people ask if I count macros or check if I’m in ketosis and the answer is no. I just eat sensibly and intuitively. Also I get asked about “snacks”. My advice is stop snacking. Results come from work. It’s hard, but baby it’s SO worth it! Side note- bald Batelli is everything #ketodiet #keto#intermittentfasting #weightlossjourney #beforeandafter #beforeandafterweightloss

And finally, the mom of three said it’s time to hit the grocery store.
“I suggest Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s,” she said. “They don’t carry as much highly processed junk food that can tempt. Buy organic and grassfed. Invest in your insides! If you are shopping at a regular grocery, I suggest shopping the perimeter of the store and never the aisles. Good rule of thumb is if it is a whole food, not a mixture of chemicals, it’s what god intended you to eat!”
Jameson revealed that she hit 80 lbs. down on Nov. 5, about seven months after starting the keto diet. The program was a last-ditch attempt to lose the baby weight after giving birth to her daughter Batel Lu in April 2017.
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

“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 f—— positive,” she wrote in another before and after post. “I’m now a little under four months on the #ketodiet and it’s not only given me physical results, I feel happier, smarter, and much more confident.”
And Jameson told her followers on Sunday that following the keto diet gets easier over time.
“Once you get in the groove eating #keto becomes second nature!” she said.
