Jenna Jameson says eats whenever she’s hungry, but the pounds are still falling off, thanks to the keto diet.
The former adult film actress, 44, shared with fans in a recent #MondayMotivation Instagram post an “updated menu” of what she eats daily. She’s dropped more than 80 lbs. on the keto diet — a low-carb, moderate protein and high-fat eating plan — since giving birth to her daughter Batel Lu in April 2017.
After waking up at 8 a.m., the mother of three drinks a cup of coffee with stevia and sugar-free creamer. Three hours later, she eats breakfast — usually three hard-boiled eggs, which she’s already cooked, mixed with one avocado and “everything but the bagel” seasoning.
At 2 p.m., she cooks steak in some avocado oil for lunch and serves it on a bed of arugula. Two hours later, she snacks on a cup of cottage cheese and then eats dinner at 5 p.m. For her last meal of the day, she often opts for salmon seasoned with lemon butter and dill and a side of asparagus or broccoli.
Then, she fasts from 6 p.m. to 11 a.m. During this time, she only drinks water or tea.

In the post, the Playboy TV alum also gave a few words of caution to her fans — namely, that it’s okay to mix meat and dairy on the diet (she just doesn’t as she keeps kosher) and that “if I feel hungry, I EAT!!!!” because she’s still breastfeeding.
She also recommends “staying away from keto breads and snacks” and instead choosing “whole organic foods … You will see the weight drop off.”
To conclude, the New York Times best-selling author writes: “Remember my friend, losing weight isn’t easy, it’s a challenge. Push past your fear of failing and make the change! Love you!”
Now she’s got her diet down pat, Jameson recently shared with fans how she’s toning her new figure without going to the gym.
“Exercise is starting to pay off. Yes I’ve lost the weight I wanted, but I want to feel toned,” she wrote alongside a before-and-after shot of herself posted on Instagram in late November. “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.”

She explained that she incorporates mommy-and-me time into her workouts and finds ways to bring fitness into her daily routine.
“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!!!!”

Following allegations of sexual harassment against ANC spokesperson Pule Mabe, the ANC Women’s League has called for his suspension.
In a statement issued on Monday night, the ANCWL said it had noted the “disturbing reports” alleging that Mabe had sexually harassed his personal assistant.
“The ANCWL condemns sexual harassment and any form of violence against women [and] children.
“Whilst we take into account the principles of innocent until proven guilty, the ANCWL is resolute in supporting the victims of sexual harassment and wishes to reiterate this position.
“Based on media reports, we are led to believe that a case has been reported to the ANC leadership and we urge the ANC to move with speed and deal with this allegations in [an] unbiased, impartial and very objective manner.
“The ANC must also consider suspending Cde Mabe from all ANC duties pending the outcome of the case. All shall be equal before the law and we are hoping for a fair and just internal disciplinary hearing as no one is above the ANC,” ANCWL secretary general Meokgo Matuba said.
The 26-year-old accuser, who asked not to be named, is expected to present her case before the ANC’s grievance committee on Wednesday.
The former PA told News24 she was appointed by Mabe himself but describes her period in his office as “the most difficult four months”.
The woman handed over a 14-page letter, which News24 has seen, detailing the alleged sexual harassment and the first assignment she worked on with Mabe. She claims Mabe forced himself into her bed on two occasions earlier this year.
‘Difficult to work with’
She says she rejected his advances and that this resulted in her being ill-treated by the ANC’s national spokesperson as his assistant.
The former assistant also said Mabe had created a difficult working environment, not only for herself, but the entire department of information and publicity at Luthuli House.
News24 also spoke to other workers in the department who described working with Mabe as “hellish” and “toxic”, accusing him of being difficult to work with.
When News24 approached Mabe for comment he initially claimed he knew nothing of the allegations or the woman’s appointment with the party’s grievance committee. Mabe later confirmed the complaint to News24. He said he would be willing to speak on Wednesday.
In a statement issued on Monday, the ANC confirmed that a complaint has been lodged at its headquarters last week.
“We have since established a Grievance Panel, as per our personnel manual, to ensure a fair process. The panel will hear the case later this week,” said the ANC’s head of presidency, Zizi Kodwa.
The party said it would not comment further until the finalisation of these internal processes.
Every now and then you may find yourself nibbling at your nails. You might be doing it subconsciously while working or watching television or you might be a conscious nail-biter struggling to kick the habit.
According to studies, approximately 20 to 30% of people are regular nail-biters. Medically referred to as onychophagia, biting one’s nails is seen as a coping mechanism for things like stress, nervousness or boredom.
The American Academy of Dermatology notes that onychophagia can also be triggered by physical factors like hangnails, chipped nails or chipped nail polish.
However, biting you nails is not just an innocent coping mechanism – it can unfortunately also transport nasty bacteria from your nails to your mouth or create an opening for bacteria and fungi to infect your nail bed.
In an interview with Time magazine, nail disorder expert Dr Richard Scher notes that the area underneath your nails is a perfect breeding ground for bacteria such as salmonella and E. coli. In fact, a study by researchers at the Atatürk University in Turkey found that 76% of people who bit their nails had E. coli in their saliva, compared to 26% of non-nail-biters.
Ingesting bacteria like E. coli, salmonella and the like can make you really sick. Common symptoms include diarrhoea, vomiting, abdominal cramps and fever.
Chomping away at your nails and the surrounding skin opens the area to infections like paronychia. Paronychia is a skin infection that causes the infected area to swell, followed by some redness and mild pain. Anyone is susceptible to this infection, which can be caused by both fungi and bacteria. Symptoms can worsen rapidly when caused by bacteria.
Paronychia comes in two forms, acute paronychia and chronic paronychia. Acute paronychia does not last long, but can cause abscesses to form around the nail. Chronic paronychia can last for several weeks at a time and can return. Chronic paronychia can leave the nail feeling hard and slightly deformed. In worse case scenarios the nail can separate from the finger.
If you suffer from diabetes, paronychia can be particularly dangerous. The infection can spread from your fingernails to body tissues and bones. In the worst case scenarios the infection can result in the loss of fingers and toes.
You can prevent infection by refraining from nail-biting, making use of clean nail clippers and keeping your nail area clean. Make sure that your nails are always neatly trimmed to avoid hangnails. You can also purchase over-the-counter products that discourage you from biting your nails.
You can treat infected nails by regularly soaking the infected areas in warm water. Should the situation not improve, it is advisable to see a doctor.

The ANC allowed a whole year of destabilisation of the agricultural sector and undermining of Brand SA purely because it didn’t want to be seen to be outdone by the EFF, writes Max du Preez.
If the new Expropriation Bill that is going to be published any day now is promulgated by Parliament next year, there will be no need to change the property clause in the Constitution.
It will then be clear to everybody that the emotional land debate that has caused so much division, uncertainty and a decline in investor confidence was about political contestation and cheap populism rather than the actual redistribution of land.
Visit News24 Voices for informed and expert opinions on the news
The ANC didn’t care much about land redistribution during the first 23 years after we became a democracy. Land reform and restitution proceeded at a snail’s pace and came to a virtual standstill during the Zuma years.
The EFF then evoked the land issue and last year the ANC copied them because it has no own ideological direction and was infected by the populist virus themselves.
The ANC leadership knew very well that the Constitution wasn’t the stumbling block hindering radical land redistribution, but it didn’t have the guts to refuse to take part in a sham that mostly served to whip up anti-white sentiment.
They knew that, because in November last year a panel of eminent experts led by the ANC’s own Kgalema Motlanthe told them so in the High-Level Panel Report commissioned by Parliament.
The ANC knew that there was broad consensus among constitutional experts that Section 25 of the Constitution provided for the expropriation of land and property, under specific conditions also with no or very little compensation.
The ANC never tested this by expropriating property and having the Constitutional Court pronounce on it.
The Constitution commands the state to formulate legislation that will facilitate citizens getting access to land.
The new Expropriation Bill accepted by Cabinet last week is, at last, that legislation.
The bill makes explicit what is implicit in the Constitution, as the deputy minister responsible for the bill, Jeremy Cronin, has said several times recently.
It stipulates that compensation could also be zero under these circumstances: land occupied by labour tenants, land purely held for speculative purposes, property abandoned by owners and land with value similar or lower than the state’s subsidies or investment in it.
Only the stipulation about land held for purely speculative purposes is mildly controversial and will probably end up before the Constitutional Court, but the others should be acceptable by all political parties.
The bill isn’t trying to defy Section 25 (1) of the Constitution that reads: “No one may be deprived of property except in terms of law of general application, and no law may permit arbitrary deprivation of property.”
If it did, it would probably have been deemed to be contrary to Section 1 (c) of the Constitution that states that the supremacy of the Constitution and the rule of law are part of the founding principles that may only be changed with a parliamentary majority of 75%.
But the ANC, under pressure from the Zuma faction, made expropriation without compensation official ANC policy at the Nasrec conference a year ago, and will now push an amendement to the Constitution through anyway.
As I understand it, it will simply mean that a sentence will be added to Section 25:3 (3) that reads that zero compensation could also be regarded as “just and equitable” under certain specific circumstances, circumstances then spelled out in legislation. Again, making explicit what is implicit.
It must therefore be clear that whatever happens next year, there can never be any arbitrary confiscation of property and that it is highly unlikely that any functioning commercial farms that have no state subsidies or investment will be expriopriated with no or very little compensation.
So the ANC allowed a whole year of destabilisation of the agricultural sector and undermining of Brand SA purely because it didn’t want to be seen to be outdone by the EFF.
After all had been said and done, the burning question still remains how millions of homeless and landless people in cities and towns will be helped to own their own piece of land and how tens of thousands of aspirant farmers will be established on the land.
Expropriation with little or no compensation will do very little to solve this problem.
So we’re back to the problems explained by the High-Level Panel Report: the state’s incompetence, lack of capacity and corruption.

Cape Town – Nine Test appearances between all of them in South Africa … and just one century to show on our soil.
That is the less than ideal track record the touring Pakistan squad bring with them for the three-match series against the Proteas, starting at SuperSport Park, Centurion, on Boxing Day.
Three players sport a trio of caps each in South Africa: captain and wicketkeeper Sarfraz Ahmed, as well as more specialist batsmen Azhar Ali and Asad Shafiq.
All were part of the similar, three-Test 2012/13 series when these foes last met on our shores, and the hosts romped to a 3-0 series sweep by fairly emphatic margins each time.
The Pakistani class of 2018/19 had better hope that natural talent – usually not something that country lacks – comes strongly to the fore in the latest bilateral series, bearing in mind that the side who visited six years ago struggled to be competitive even with an array of seasoned figures in their batting ranks, in particular.
That outfit was led by Misbah-ul-Haq, who later retired from Tests aged 43 in 2017, and included other gnarly figures at the crease like Younis Khan, Pakistan’s all-time leading runs-scorer with 10,099 at 52.05, and Mohammad Hafeez.
But they were well beaten anyway, and it must be a slightly scary thought to their supporters that the 2018/19 party is precariously short of know-how when it comes to South Africa’s conditions in the five-day format.
Both Ali (sixth) and Shafiq (ninth) are among the top ten for historical weight of Test runs by Pakistanis, and reassuring presences on this tour just for that reason.
But that hardly makes them masters of SA surfaces, either: Shafiq boasts the only century of the present squad here, the 111 he notched at Newlands in the second Test on the last visit, while Ali’s best South African effort is 65 at the same venue during that clash.
All of the other frontline Pakistani batsmen in action over the next few weeks will be tasting Test activity here for the first time, although opener Shan Masood did make 75 on debut against the very Proteas when they played a series in the United Arab Emirates in 2013 (Abu Dhabi).
Undoubtedly the main topic of conversation when it comes to their attack will be the presence of in-form leg-spinner Yasir Shah, who hit the headlines a few days ago by becoming the fastest bowler of all time to reach 200 Test scalps.
He did it during the just-completed “home” series (in the UAE) against New Zealand, despite the Black Caps registering an upset 2-1 triumph.
Shah achieved the distinction in his 33rd Test, beating the 36 required by previous, long-time record-holder Clarrie Grimmett of Australia, another leg-break specialist who had earned the landmark against South Africa in Johannesburg back in 1936.
But for all his obvious prowess and the clear threat he will pose to the Proteas if there is even a hint of turn on offer during the coming series, Shah has not yet played against South Africa, anywhere, in any of the three formats.
He does have some southern African know-how, having played five one-day internationals – he bagged figures of six for 26 at Harare in 2015 – plus two of the T20 variety in Zimbabwe.
Pakistan have reinstated dangerous left-arm fast bowler Mohammad Amir to their plans for the tour, although his own 33-Test career also includes no activity against the Proteas yet.
The 26-year-old was serving a five-year ban (he also had six months in jail in the UK) for involvement in a spot-fixing scandal when the countries last locked horns, either in South Africa or the UAE.
But Amir has played three ODIs on SA soil, even if all were against other foes (West Indies, New Zealand, India) during the 2009 Champions Trophy, the last time our country hosted a major ICC event.
