Even some of the most diligent dieters indulge in a cheat meal now and then—Vinny Guadagnino included.

The star of Jersey Shore—which is back on MTV Thursdays as Jersey Shore: Family Vacation—has undergone a stunning body transformation, losing 50 pounds and building a cut physique through exercise and the keto diet.

Guadagnino has even branded himself as a kind of keto guru with his @ketoguido Instagram account, showing off simple recipes and providing motivational tips for others interested in trying the keto diet.

On one episode of Family Vacation, after the whole crew went out clubbing, they ordered a delivery pizza. Rather than forego his strict dietary standards, Vinny went all in… on just the cheese. Which prompted Ron to say Vinny was like a “pelican,” and Pauly D scolded, “Stop that shit and eat the crust.” (Jersey Shore family, never change.)
