Rock heir Jack Osbourne is so eager to lose weight, he's gone on the controversial ATKINS DIET - but it's not working for him.

The son of legendary rocker Ozzy and his manager wife SHARON is keen to slim after successfully conquering his drink and drug demons.

But according to sources close to the reality TV favourite, poor Jack hasn't quite understood the high fat diet only works if you renounce carbohydrates.

A source whispers, "He heard how you could have bacon and eggs and loads of fried stuff on the diet so thought it would be ideal.

"Only thing is, he has his bacon and eggs in a sandwich or with fried bread, and still insists on chips with everything.

"He's doing well giving up the booze but finds it has only made him pig out more on food."
