MAFS Star Reveals 8kg Weight Loss Transformation

1 min read


It’s been a few months since Married At First Sight introduced us to Lauren Huntriss, the makeup artist who “used to be a lesbian” and was married to (now ex) virgin Matthew Bennett. 

Posting to Instagram, the 31-year-old shared before-and-after photos documenting her eight-kilo weight loss since appearing on the reality show. 

Lauren claims she looked “six month preggas” last year and owes her stunning weight loss to eating meat after spending the past six years as a vegetarian. 

The reality star bared all in a lengthy caption, saying she had reached “the heaviest I’d ever been in my life — 72kgs (for someone that’s only 5’4 that’s pretty overweight),” and was battling back pain.

“I was miserable and just wanted so badly to find a partner that it was all I focused on… I thought to myself - if I can just find someone I will be happy.”

Lauren says she is now “fit as a fiddle” at 64kgs, is working for herself and happily single. 

“I don't have a partner nor am I even looking because for once in my life I am so content with my life and myself.” 

The makeup artist achieved her transformation by going “to the gym 4-5 days a week,  walk (EVERYWHERE- just ask my parents lol), I eat a balanced diet & take weight management supplements,” as well as reintroducing meat into her previously vegetarian diet. 

You go girl!
