- The reality star called her version “half keto,” because she allowed herself cheat days.
Good friends will always have your back—and sometimes the latest scoop on diet and fitness ideas, too. Jersey Shore star Angelina Pivarnick knows that firsthand. She turned to fellow cast mate and friend Vinny Guadagnino, aka the “Keto Guido,” for diet advice.
“I kind of followed [Keto], but on Sundays I gave myself a cheat day, which I think Vinny does, too,” she told E! “I basically followed what Vinny told me to do. Never in a million years would you think that I would be listening to Vinny.”
Hold up, half-keto? Yep, and it’s actually called keto cycling. For this keto diet variation “most of the time, the definition is that you stick to strict carb-restricted keto diet five to six days a week and have one day that is either a cheat day or a planned day of higher carbs,” Robert Santos-Prowse, R.D.N., author of The Ketogenic Mediterranean Diet previously told Women’s Health.

“[Vinny]’s been amazing and I really appreciate that he’s helped me get ready for my upcoming wedding,” she told E, adding that he and another Jersey Shore star, Pauly D, noticed her weight-loss efforts. “”When I saw Pauly and Vinny recently, they were like, ‘Oh my God, you’ve lost so much weight,” she said.
And while Angelina says she works out occasionally (mainly by walking on the treadmill), she says her weight loss comes primarily from the change in her diet—which she sticks to with help from her two favorite meal services: Eat Clean Bro, a fresh meal delivery service serving some states on the East Coast.
Props to Angelina for sticking to the keto diet and losing weight—now, she just has to find a wedding dress for her fall wedding.
