Jenna Jameson has transformed her face — and she claims no surgery is necessary. (Though a good filter might also help, as many of us know and use.)
Since losing more than 80 lbs. with the Keto diet, the former adult film star has transformed her body. She shared a side-by-side look of her pre- and post-Keto image on Instagram.
“I’ve never talked about how changing my diet has impacted the inflammation in my body,” Jameson, 44, wrote on Instagram. “Not only has my face changed from weight loss, but eating whole foods and next to zero processed foods has made my skin better. Less puffiness, we all can go for that! Even better, my joints don’t ache anymore. It’s as if I’ve turned back the clock.”
The mom of three started the Keto diet in March in hopes of losing the baby weight that stuck around after she gave birth to daughter Batel in April 2017. In concert with the high-fat, low-carb diet, Jameson does intermittent fasting — where she condenses all her meals into a short period and fasts for the rest of the day — and noted that the eating method “plays a big role in [reducing inflammation] also!”
Jameson announced in early November that she was down 80 lbs. Back in July, when she had lost 57 lbs., she marveled at how different her body felt compared to when she was at her heaviest.

Exercise is starting to pay off. Yes I’ve lost the weight I wanted, but I want to feel toned. At my age it isn’t easy. I’m almost 45. Honestly I despise the gym. I feel self conscious and anxious when I’m there. So I told myself I would strengthen myself by hiking with Batel, walking as much as possible and run stairs. It’s working. This progression proves you don’t have to spend hours in a gym… get out, move your body and live life!!!! #keto #beforeandafter #beforeandafterweightloss #fitmom #ketodiet #ketotransformation #healthylifestyle #heal #fitnessmotivation
“I was lethargic and struggled with the easiest of tasks like walking in the beach sand with Batelli. I felt slow mentally and physically,” she said. “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. 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.”
Now that Jameson has figured out a diet that seemingly works for her, she’s easing back into exercise — though she isn’t a fan of the gym.
“I told myself I would strengthen myself by hiking with Batel, walking as much as possible and run stairs,” she wrote. “It’s working. This progression proves you don’t have to spend hours in a gym… get out, move your body and live life!!!!”
It’s important to note that experts haven’t been that keen on the Ketogenic diet — designed to make your body enter a state where it’s relying on fat for energy — as the program ranks near or at the bottom in every category, except for short-term weight loss. Many experts expressed concerns about the diet’s emphasis on fat-rich foods. “This diet is fundamentally at odds with everything we know about long-term health,” one expert said. So take all of this with a grain of salt (which apparently is necessary with the Keto diet.)
