Jenna Jameson has admitted to gaining weight after giving the keto diet a rest to live her ‘best carby life’.

The former model has in the past vocally advocated for the strict diet, which sees users cut out high carbohydrates or sugary foods in exchange for high protein foods and good fats.

Practitioners of the diet claim that removing these food groups forces the body to burn fat over carbs, but many users struggle with both the restrictive nature of the diet and the intermittent fasting (Jennifer Aniston’s fave) it requires.

And it seems as though it had all got to be a bit too much for the former Celebrity Big Brother star, who admitted on Instagram that she was putting the diet aside for a while.

‘Confession. I’ve gained 20 pounds. Ugh,’ the mum-of-three wrote.

‘I decided to take a break from #keto and live my best carby life. The weight came back fast and furious.

‘I know a lot of people are quitting keto because it’s hard to maintain and after a year and a half I concur. Not sure if I’m going to go back full force or just calorie count.’

With Christmas around the corner, we think going back to carbs is definitely a good idea.

In the past, Jenna has claimed the diet helped her lose 100lbs and was known for sharing meal plans and advice with her followers as well as speaking honestly about her struggles as she attempted to lose weight after having her first child.

The 45-year-old welcomed her first child, a baby girl called Batel Lu, in April 2017 with fiancé Lior Bitton.

‘I am so proud to introduce everyone to my newborn daughter! Her name is Batel Lu Bitton,’ Jenna shared on Instagram along with a picture of her baby girl snoozing.

‘We are head over heels in love with her.

‘Welcome to the world little star, Mommy loves you.’
