Jorge Nava recently debuted a significant weight loss by way of an updated mugshot, proving that the 90 Day Fiancé star has been making the most of his time behind bars.
Jorge, who revealed to E! News that he’s dropped 125 pounds since beginning his two-and-a-half year prison sentence in September 2018 for drug charges, said he’s pleased by the reaction people have had to his physical transformation.
“I am glad that people are noticing some positivity out of such a negative outcome,” he said. “Hopefully people can see that I am able to turn things around even though I am at the lowest point in my life.”
As The Ashley previously told you, Jorge was arrested in February of last year for transporting nearly 300 pounds of marijuana in his car. He was sentenced in September 2018 and that same month he began serving his sentence at the Arizona State Prison Complex in Phoenix, Arizona.
Jorge attributes his new body-by-prison physique to diet and exercise, the latter of which he does twice a day — at 4 a.m. and again in the afternoon — with a fellow inmate. Their gym routine, he said, focuses mainly on “military-based” workouts and “a lot of jogging.”
“We both motivate each other and we push ourselves to the limit pretty much,” he added.
As for his new diet, Jorge said he consumes foods such as oatmeal and peanut butter and because of his current living situation, he’s cut out things like fast food, soda and energy drinks.
“I had a really bad diet when I was out in the free world,” he admitted. “I wanted to be in the best physical and healthiest shape possible. I feel healthy and energetic. I feel overall more confident with myself.”
In addition to his physical health, Jorge said he’s focused on his marriage to wife Anfisa while in prison. While Anfisa has been cryptic about the status of their relationship, Jorge said he and his wife are doing “really well” and that Anfisa is looking forward to his release, set for August 9, 2020, according to online prison records.
“My hope is to basically get out and start life over with a different point of view,” he said. “I don’t want to make the same mistake that I already did. I learned from all of the negativity. Hopefully, I can turn it into something positive and make a greater change.”
As The Ashley told you last week, Anfisa has been keeping herself busy during Jorge’s prison sentence by attending school and continuing to focus on her own physical fitness.

I've been a little quiet lately on all of my social media because I've been really focusing on school. Spring semester is going to be my last one at the community college and I'm planning to transfer to a university 🙈 Never in my life I have imagined that I will have such a great opportunity to study in the US. When I enrolled in community college in 2018, I thought that I would like to transfer in 2 years but I felt like it was SOOO far but now the time has come and I'm stressing out 😅 I absolutely love the major that I chose(business administration) and I've been enjoying all of the classes related to it (with accounting being my favorite🤓) I'm going to film a life update next week giving you more details about everything so stay tuned! 🥰
At the beginning of the month, she revealed her plans to transfer from a community college to a university after the Spring 2020 semester to continue working towards a degree in business administration.
She has refused to respond to fans’ questions about the status of her marriage to Jorge.
