Jersey Shore star Vinny Guadagnino lost 50 pounds on the keto diet. Now he is sharing what is being called the "Keto Guido" food dairy, which is essentially all the foods he ate to achieve his desired weight loss.
The Italian American reality TV star had to give up the loaves and loaves of bread he devoured daily to take on the keto diet. He has documented his experience on Instagram now dubbing himself the "Keto Guido." Most recently, he shared a video of what is in his fridge telling his followers it is his food diary.
Guadagnino only eats foods that are all natural. According to Women's Health the fist-pumping star is not about the processed food; instead, he opts for grass-fed, organic and free-range foods. Bacon and cheese are two staple items that can be found in his fridge, but he doesn't go overboard on them. The 31-year-old has said he eats about three pieces of bacon for breakfast and keeps his cheese intake limited to keep his dairy consumption in check.

I did a tour of my #keto fridge for @womenshealthmag . Click the link in my bio for full video ..I’ll leave it up there for a while and hope it can benefit some people ...this isn’t a “fad diet “ .. it’s cleaning out all of that processed bullshit made with sugar and chemicals and swapping it out for meat,vegetables, and healthy fats which we were taught was bad for us . Not much to it .. eat healthy real food, not processed bullshit that says “low cholesterol” on it .. don’t know why that offends so many people lmao. #ketoguido
Even though he has a big sweet tooth the Jersey Shore Family Vacation star does limit how much sugar he eats. It was a tough challenge for him, but now Guadagnino insists that a piece of 90 percent cocoa curves his sweet craving. Another go-to for the sweets lover is keto cheesecake sweetened with monk fruit extract.
Another way he keeps his keto diet in check is by flavoring all the foods he eats properly. Spices are his best friend, and he uses them on everything, including his arugula salad, which features a squeeze of lemon, olive oil, salt, and some onions. His Italian roots come into play again with his love of garlic, Guadagnino admits most of the food he eats has garlic on it or in it.

Monday and Tuesday I ate like a pig and after injecting sugar into my blood for two days I honestly was ready to get back to eating meat and vegetables . It’s always been tough for me to work out as well in the midst of eating bad during the holidays but this time I sucked it up and said fuck your negative thoughts and work the fuck out because Christmas is over . And after the rest of the week of sweating, intermittent fasting , and eating Keto .. I feel good again .... point is, sometimes it just takes a few days of kicking your ass back into gear and then you get back into the flow. Now I intend on doing this consistently for weeks straight and feel better and get more cut as time goes on . Thank God for a sustainable and enjoyable way of eating to always fall back on as a foundation in between little treat holidays . #ketoguido
Last, but by no means least. Vinny Guadagnino has a freezer full of meat. He uses a delivery service called ButcherBox, which brings him his favorite meats once a month. The best part is that he can switch up his order, so he is not eating the same meat protein all the time.
What do you think about Guadagnino's transformation and his new "Keto Guido" food dairy on social media?
