MAFS 2019: Lauren Huntriss shows off weight loss
Married At First Sight’s Lauren Huntriss has changed a lot over the past year.
The reality star, who was set up with virgin Matthew Bennett on the show, has shared an incredible before-and-after photo on Instagram revealing her physical transformation.
Lauren wrote in the caption of the side-by-side photos which were taken a year apart, that she is motivated by “my trolls, my enemies, all the people who constantly try to bring me down to their level”.

“A positive mind set is the most powerful thing a human being can have. Instead of dwelling on the negatives and mistakes you’ve made in the past, learn from them and turn them into something positive,” she wrote.
Lauren opened up about her weight-loss journey in August, telling fans on Instagram how she’d managed to lose 8kg.
“I go to the gym 4-5 days a week, I walk (EVERYWHERE- just ask my parents lol), I eat a balanced diet & take weight management supplements, and last but not least I have recently started reintroducing meat back into my diet,” she wrote.
“I was a vegetarian for 6 years for ethical reasons. But my body was craving meat (haha you dirty ba***rds) so I gave in and since doing so I find my diet is much healthier and the protein keeps me fuller for longer.”
Lauren and her “hubby” Matt had one of the biggest storylines early on in the most recent season of Married At First Sight.
After Matthew lost his virginity to Lauren on their honeymoon, their relationship came to an abrupt end when she overheard him admitting at a dinner party that he was “just not attracted” to her.
“I just feel a bit used, Matt. Did you just use me to lose your virginity?” Lauren asked Matthew in a heated confrontation.
Matthew accused Lauren of pressuring him into being more sexual on the show and was visibly shocked when she confessed to him that she used to be a lesbian.
Lauren later revealed that she was forced to say that line by a producer, telling fans: “For the record I never chose the word ‘lesbian’. I initially said ‘I used to see women because I hated men when I was 18-20 due to something personal’, but no it wasn’t dramatic enough so the producer made me say the word ‘lesbian’.
“To clarify I never was a lesbian, I had sexual experiences when I was 18 ffs.”
