If you haven't been paying attention, Mama June -- and her recent weight gain -- have been a point of discussion. Folks seem pretty fixated on the From Not to Hot star as of late after she confessed she gained 25 pounds. Welp, Mama June just revealed she's on a diet, and the good critics of the world (insert sarcasm) can't help but comment, claiming her weight loss surgery was a "waste." (Yikes.)

  • Mama June admits she gained 25 pounds as a result of multiple eye surgeries to save the vision in her left eye.

    "I can't do anything and have to lay down most of the time and take care of my vision," Mama June revealed to People about losing vision in her eye. "I have to worry about that right now. That's my main concern."

    "I’ve tried the keto diet, and it's not that bad. It's like, cheese, eggs, protein, meat. And you honestly lose weight with that," the reality star admitted about her weight loss journey during an interview on the BUILD Series, People reports.

    She continued:

    "That's what I've been going back to, and I've started losing a couple pounds. But it actually, really works. I don't eat bread or pasta .... I'm not here to tell people how to diet, because everyone's different, but I know what has worked for me. I think people just don't need to give up, and I think that's what happens with a lot of diets nowadays. I've done that."
