90 Day Fiance's Jorge Nava Reveals How He Lost 133 Pounds During His Prison Sentence

90 Day Fiancé star Jorge Nava revealed how exactly he went from 318lbs to 185lbs during his prison sentence.

The reality star was featured on season four of the hit TLC show when he brought his now ex wife, Anfisa Arkhipchenko, over on a K1 Visa from Russia. The pair split about two months into his prison sentence. He now has a new partner, Rhoda Blau, and the welcomed a baby this past year.

Jorge was sentenced to 2.5 years in prison after his 2018 arrest for allegedly trying to sell 300 lbs. of marijuana. He faced charges of possession of marijuana for sale, possession of drug paraphernalia and the intent to transport and/or sell marijuana.

“Being in solitary confinement for a little bit, you kind of get to think a lot,” he told ET. “You get to read a lot of books and kind of change your mindset on things. I got the taste of success a little bit when I was able to change my mindset to change my personal appearance, like, with literally a small seed. Like, I read a book, and what I learned from this book, it kind of gave me the motivation to change myself.”

The book that inspired him was Tony Robbins‘ bestselling 1992 book, “Awaken the Giant Within.”

“It has to be something that you choose to do,” he continued. “I felt, honestly, at the very beginning when I was going through it, I felt hopeless, I felt powerless. And I felt like I couldn’t do anything to reflect my outside environment. It wasn’t until going through all of this that I was able to see that I shouldn’t try to control what’s going on out in the outside, but try to change what was within, and that little change sparked everything that has happened now.”

“I feel like I’ve been procrastinating in my past,” Jorge added. “I was like, ‘I’ll get to it when I get to it,’ and now I’m just with the mindset like, ‘I have to get it done, there’s only a little bit of time.’ And if you keep procrastinating, you never get to accomplish any of your goals. And now I’m like, no matter what, even if I fail, I still try, I still plan another way to do it. And to this day, I feel like I accomplished mostly everything I’ve envisioned when I was locked away.”

He revealed he has gained about 35 pounds of his weight loss back.

“I still feel healthy,” he added. “When I was 185, I felt really, really skinny. I don’t feel like I’ve overdone it. I guess it’s kinda just maintaining a healthy diet, really. That’s what it really comes down to. Like, weight loss comes to 95 percent diet, and five percent in the gym.”
