Married At First Sight: Jo McPharlin denies weight loss surgery as she’s branded ‘too skinny’


Married At First Sight’s Jo McPharlin denies having weight loss surgery after trolls called her ‘too skinny’ – as she reveals how she lost her final 20kg

Married At First Sight’s Jo McPharlin has denied undergoing weight loss surgery after being body-shamed and labelled ‘too skinny’ by Internet trolls.

The 42-year-old single mother shared a video to Instagram on Sunday explaining how she had gradually slimmed down over the course of two years.

She said her weight loss was due to cutting out junk food and alcohol, keeping active, and using an electromagnetic muscle stimulation device.

Jo, who rose to fame on MAFS in 2018, admitted she had been reluctant to detail her weight loss because of her lack of health and fitness qualifications. 

‘I am just a mum to two beautiful children. What works for me may not work for you. I have been dedicated, strict and everything mentally I wanted to be,’ she said. 

‘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.

‘I’ve stopped junk food, all of my carbs and the majority of alcohol. It’s a lifestyle change. I’ve been blessed with losing weight, but maintaining it is the hard part.’

She spoke out after her most recent Instagram post was met with nasty comments and baseless speculation she’d had surgery.

Jo said: ‘Everyone keeps saying, “Stop losing weight! Stop losing weight.” I haven’t lost weight in probably four months now. What I am doing is toning up.’

She added that the ketogenic diet had helped her shift 20kg and reach her goal weight last year, but she didn’t promote this at the time because she’s not a dietitian.

The concept behind the ‘keto diet’ is to put one’s body in a metabolic state of ketosis, which raises the ketone levels in the blood and causes the body to burn fat, not carbohydrates.

Lastly, Jo revealed how she was now toning up her body after losing weight.

In addition to walking for 90 minutes per day, she has been using an MM Slimming device, which uses electromagnetism to stimulate muscles. 

She said of the device, which she uses at a local beauty clinic: ‘I’m a little bit addicted! You sit there and it’s like 20,000 sit-ups in half an hour.

‘As much as everyone is saying I’m skinny, I’m the same weight. I’ve just started to tone up, lose my bum and stomach. This machine is amazing.’
