90 Day Fiance star Jorge Nava has undergone quite the physical transformation while in prison!

Jorge, who began serving a 22-month prison sentence in September 2018 after pleading guilty to a felony charge of marijuana transportation, has apparently lost a dramatic amount of weight while behind bars.

A new photo of Jorge posted on the Arizona Department of Corrections' inmate website showing a much slimmer man has been circulating online and generating a stir among 90 Day Fiance viewers.

The TLC reality star appears to have followed his wife Anfisa Arkhipchenko's lead and developed a passion for fitness while in prison -- either that, or it's the prison food -- as the weight loss is very apparent in his neck, jawline and face in the photo.

Jorge was admitted into prison, he weighed 275 pounds and was 6' 3" tall, according to his prison record.

Jorge was arrested at age 28 in February 2018 with nearly 300 pounds of marijuana in the trunk of his car.

Jorge previously said he believes his prior criminal record -- which includes two previous convictions for cultivation of marijuana -- is why he didn't receive a lighter sentence to begin with.

"With the charges against me, I was looking at around 24 years or something like that -- some ridiculous number," he told TMZ last year.

"But luckily, my lawyer was able to work out a plea agreement and I got the charges dropped and I ended up pleading to a class 4 felony in Arizona."

Recreational marijuana (especially 300 pounds of it) is still not legal in Arizona.

After originally appearing on Season 4 of 90 Day Fiance, Jorge and his wife Anfisa Arkhipchenko -- who met on Facebook -- were also part of the cast of Seasons 2 and 3 of 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?.

Jorge and Anfisa, however, confirmed in October 2018 they wouldn't be returning to 90 Day Fiance.

Jorge was a 27-year-old from Riverside, CA and Anfisa was a 20-year-old from Moscow, Russia when Anfisa arrived in America on a K-1 visa.

Anfisa didn't exactly deny she was in the relationship for Jorge's money, but she believed he, in turn, was dating her primarily for her looks.

Regardless, the pair got married in a simple courthouse ceremony, and they remain married today.

While her husband has been in prison, Anfisa has been committed to fitness as well and became a bodybuilder.

"To fill the void that I felt after Jorge was sentenced and I was left on my own I decided to try to stay busy and do what I enjoy the most and it was working out," Anfisa said on Instagram.

"And ONE DAY I want to take it on a higher level and compete in NPC bikini division."

In July, Anfisa celebrated her wins in a female bodybuilding competition she had entered in Las Vegas.

"Stage photos are coming in! To be honest I still can't believe I won every class I competed in last weekend  Only when I look at the photos and my trophies I realize that it actually happened!" she gushed.
