What diet did Foxy Jojo stick to in order to lose weight?

Since the beginning of her weight loss journey, Jo has been upfront about the diet she has been following, which is the ketogenic diet.

She claimed that she got much more disciplined with her diet in a separate interview with The Daily Mail Australia, stating, “Instead of zipping through drive-thru takeaways after work [each night], I make food that I can freeze to reheat easily when I get home.”

During an Instagram live video, she went into additional detail about her diet, claiming that the only thing she had changed was her meal plan and that she had given up junk food, soft drinks, and even maternal energy drinks.

“I basically just drink water. I haven’t really gone out that much to have the odd beer or two that I like either,” she noted.

Apart from walking for 90 minutes each day, Jo’s exercise regimen was not fully described in any other reports. It was known, nevertheless, that the television personality also used this specific machine to assist her in getting in shape and losing a few pounds.

And the equipment in question is referred to as a “MM Slimming” machine from All Covered Beauty, and it employs electromagnetic to promote muscle growth, fat reduction, and body shape. She captioned a shot in which she is using the machine, writing, “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.”

Jo even said that she doesn’t know exactly how much weight she’s dropped because she hasn’t had scales in her home for years, but the fact that all of her clothes fit so much better now is a sure sign that she’s losing weight.

What motivates Foxy Jojo to pursue a healthy weight loss routine?

Jo’s motivation for losing weight was primarily to avoid getting sick like her mother and also wanting to be there for her kids.

“After seeing my own mum being sick, I just didn’t want that for myself, and I wanted to make sure that I was around for my own kids, that I could run around with them and be the best mum to them that I could be,” she told 9Entertainmnet.

Additionally, the goal of the whole weight loss process is to become physically and emotionally well and happy, not only to lose weight.

“You know, it’s all about just making sure that I’m eating food that is good and healthy, it’s not about the weight for me, it really isn’t. It’s about making sure that I have the energy and the health to stick around and be as happy as I can be.”

Given that every day is a mental battle, she said in her closing statement in the same interview that she only concentrated on leading a better lifestyle.

“But I got there in the end. As I said, I think the biggest thing is I never had an end date,” she concluded. “So I’m not going to fail because I didn’t go, ‘Oh, I’m going to be done by this date.’ So that’s a big mental thing for me. It’s a lifestyle change, not anything else.”

Foxy Jojo has gained greater self-confidence as a result of her weight loss journey.

In one of her Instagram posts, Jo talked about how she used to despise the way her arms looked and would cover them with everything, even cardigans or coats on a 43°C day. However, she ultimately realized that no one else was really concerned with how they looked except for her.

“No one ever criticized them or made a comment on how big they were but me,” she pointed out. “I was my own worst enemy. When I stopped and looked in the mirror I mean really looked in the mirror and said ‘stop being so harsh on yourself you are gorgeous inside and out’ that was the day that changed my life forever.”

Jo subsequently mentioned in a different discussion that she had earned her current appearance through hard work and had not undergone cosmetic surgery.

“I don’t give a toss about what people think I look like, I am just me. Love me or hate me, I’m just me,” she said at the time. “I have been dedicated, strict and everything mentally I wanted to be. That’s how I’m achieving my goals.”
