California resident Jorge and his Russian girlfriend Anfisa Arkhipchenko were featured on 90 Day Fiancé season 4 after having met on Facebook.

Now a year after his release, with new partner Rhoda Blua and baby Zara in his life, Jorge is revealing what made him lose weight after losing his 90 Day Fiancé partner Anfisa.

Having 293 pounds of marijuana in his car in Arizona got 90 Day Fiancé‘s Jorge sentenced to two and a half years in prison, creating one of the biggest franchise scandals ever. However, Jorge was released early from jail in May 2020 but not before he shocked the world with his photo in that bright orange jumpsuit. The incarcerated celeb’s popularity grew on Instagram with 30,000 followers overnight as Jorge revealed his skinny new frame, making him unrecognizable from his 90 Day Fiancé days. Fans wondered what made Jorge go from 318 pounds to 185 pounds.
In a new interview with ET, new daddy Jorge shared his weight loss secret while happily revealing that he’s now also 35 pounds heavier. “Being in solitary confinement for a little bit, you kind of get to think a lot,” confessed the popular 90 Day Fiancé star. This made Jorge turn to the company of books that helped change his mindset and gave him “the taste of success a little bit.” He revealed that it was the 1992 book Awaken The Giant Within by Tony Robbins, “which shares techniques for mastering one’s emotions, body, relationships and finances,” that gave 90 Day Fiancé‘s Jorge the motivation to change.
“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,” disclosed Jorge. But the 90 Day Fiancé personality also shared that going through these feelings helped him realize that change starts from “within” and not by controlling “what’s going on out in the outside.” Jorge admitted that he procrastinated in the past, but now he believes that “no matter what, even if I fail, I still try, I still plan another way to do it.” Anfisa’s ex-husband shockingly stated, “And to this day, I feel like I accomplished mostly everything I’ve envisioned when I was locked away.”
Even now, despite having regained 35 pounds, Jorge still feels healthy. “When I was 185, I felt really, really skinny. I don’t feel like I’ve overdone it,” added Jorge, who feels that in conclusion, it’s all about “maintaining a healthy diet.” For the fit 90 Day Fiancé star, weight loss is “95 percent diet and five percent in the gym.” While the weight loss did get Jorge hordes of new admirers, it also helped him unknowingly woo his baby mama. Rhoda recently gushed that she looked Jorge up and messaged him after seeing the 90 Day Fiancé star’s viral jumpsuit photo.
