Married At First Sight’s Jo McPharlin has lost over 20kg since appearing on the show in 2018.

Whereas the reality TV world is full of stars promoting fad diets and weight loss shakes on Instagram, the 42-year-old has transformed her lifestyle the old fashioned way.

With hard work and determination.

The mum-of-two has completely overhauled her eating habits and exercise over the past two years, slowly seeing changes as each month passes. Below, Jo reveals how she’s done it.

CUTTING OUT JUNK FOOD AND BOOZE

‘I’ve stopped junk food, all of my carbs and the majority of alcohol. It’s a lifestyle change. I have been dedicated, strict and everything mentally I wanted to be. That’s how I’m achieving my goals. No surgery, no major story to it. It’s been bloody hard work, mentally and emotionally. Every single day I want certain food, but I look at my two beautiful children and I want a better quality of life for everybody. Instead of zipping through drive-through takeaways after work [each night], I make food that I can freeze to reheat easily when I get home.’

EASY EXERCISE

‘I do exercise, everyday. I’ve got a walking machine [in my lounge] and for an hour, or an hour and half a day, I get on it and watch TV. It’s not always in one stint, I just don’t have the time. Or I’ll take the dog and go up and down the block. I’m being more active than I ever have been. I don’t go to the gym, I can’t afford the gym and don’t have time to go to a gym.

TONING UP

‘I go and have MM Slimming from head to toe. I love it, I’m a little bit addicted at the moment. I’ve been with them for the last six months. I’m toning up my stomach and bum, the machine is amazing. You sit there and have like 20,000 sit ups in like half an hour.’

The MM Slimming device uses electromagnetism to stimulate muscles and tone the body.
