Jenna Jameson (Jenna Massoli) was born in Las Vegas to a showgirl who danced in the Folies Bergère. Her mother died of cancer when she was just 2. Bankrupt from paying for the cancer treatments, her family moved around frequently, often living in a trailer home. Jameson took ballet classes throughout her childhood, began modeling and dancing in strip clubs while she was still underage. She was earning $2,000/week before she finished high school. Jameson had a bout with drug addiction and lost so much weight, she could no longer find work as model. Her first erotic film appearance was in 1993. She overcame her drug addition and her career took off; she has won some 3 dozen adult-video awards. In 2000, she founded ClubJenna, an adult entertainment company which Playboy TV made a reality series about. In 2004, Jameson’s autobiography was on The New York Times best-seller list for 6 weeks. Between merchandising and film successes, she was the top porn star in the world at one time. She is a member of the Adult Video News Hall of Fame. Jameson has also made mainstream appearances, including on Howard Stern and WWE pay-per-views. She retired from the adult film industry in 2008, but still works as a model. She has 3 children and currently lives in Hawaii with her husband Lior Bitton. Jameson has over a million followers on Facebook alone.She is 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighs about 125 lbs.
Jenna Jameson’s Diet
Jameson lost 60 lbs. in just 4 months by following the keto diet. This involves eating things that are low in carbs but high in healthy fats like avocados, eggs, and meat. She only eats organic, whole foods, and avoids anything that comes pre-packaged. She also engages in intermittent fasting, which means she only eats during a small window of time each day. She says she gets a lot of questions about her diet, and openly shares her meal plans on social media. Jameson says one of the tricks that keeps her on track with her diet is drinking plenty of water. It tames cravings and helps her to feel full during her fasting periods. She mostly cooks for herself and rarely eats out.
- Low Carb 10% 10%
- Medium Protein 35% 35%
- High Fat 75% 75%
Jameson has coffee with stevia around 8 am each morning, but she doesn’t eat anything until 11 am.
No Brainer Breakfast
Jameson says she eats the exact same thing every day for her first meal: 3 eggs with avocado and cheese.
The ‘keto kween’ makes lunch her biggest meal. It involves vegetables, such as a salad, grilled asparagus or zucchini, and some form of meat, like chicken or a hamburger. If she feels hungry later, she’ll have nuts or cottage cheese, and then her fast begins at 6 pm.
Jameson fasts from 6 pm to 11 am each day, shrinking her window of eating down to just 7 hours each day, and fasting for 17. Intermittent fasting offers many benefits to the body, including autophagy which is a process where the body breaks down old cells and builds new ones.
Jameson likes to be bold, but her idea of a cheat meal is still pretty healthy. She posted a picture of herself enjoying a Mideastern feast of hummus, olives, rice and meat, which, as far as cheats go, is pretty tame.
More recently, James took a break from keto and went back to eating more carbs — and gained back 20 lbs. She is still debating whether to return to low-carb or count calories.

Jenna Jameson’s Fitness Routine
Weekly Workout Routine
Zero Gym Time
Jameson is a self-confessed gym-hater, and is at a loss for what to say when people ask her about her routine, which does not involve any time on the elliptical.
Jameson studied ballet for many years, has always been active. She attributes her figure to muscle memory.
Jameson says that while she tried to develop a yoga habit or some sort of gym routine, it didn’t stick, so instead she gets her exercise by pushing the baby to the market every day.
Jameson developed the condition of diastasis recti during pregnancy, in which the stomach muscles separate. She pulls her abs in a static hold to help strengthen and reconnect them.

Jenna Jameson’s Supplements
Jameson takes a supplement for adrenal support. It is a blend of herbs, vitamins and amino acids that promotes adrenal health, increases energy and reduces stress.
Jameson also takes grass-fed collagen, which supports strong, healthy hair, skin, and nails, as well as strong bones, joints and other connective tissue.
Other than collagen and adrenal support, Jameson doesn’t have much to say on the subject of supplements, but if you are trying out the keto diet, there are a few that can support your efforts. Magnesium is an essential nutrient that regulates blood sugar, and boosts immunity and energy, and you may run low on the keto diet because a lot of foods that contain magnesium also tend to be carb-y, such as fruit and legumes.
Coconut oil contains MCTs or medium-chain triglycerides which can help keep you in ketosis, and also feel full, promoting weight loss. Some people like to mix MCTs in their morning coffee to extend their fasting period.
Keto isn’t a license to eat all the bacon double cheese burgers you want, and leafy greens should be a big part of the diet, but if you’re not getting as much as you should, you can take a green supplement to help provide those essential vitamins and minerals.
A low-carb diet means the body doesn’t hold on to as much water, which can throw off your balance of electrolytes. Consider supplementing with salt, potassium, or an electrolyte blend.
