When asked for the secret behind her dramatic weight loss, 90 Day Fiancé star Mahogany Roca talks about how she struggled with an eating disorder.
Former 90 Day Fiancé star Mahogany Roca shared her struggles and recovery from eating disorders with Instagram fans after being asked for her weight loss secret. The 22-year-old Peruvian woman has perhaps been the biggest mystery to exist in the TLC franchise. Mahogany was never introduced in the trailer for 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days season 5 with Ben Rathbun, with only her filtered photos shown to fans. When Mahogany finally debuted 10 episodes later, many refused to believe it was the real her and declared it was just an actress.
Since 90 Day Fiancé cast member Mahogany was last seen in the Before The 90 Days Tell-All, in which she and Ben were still together after several episodes of a supposed catfishing storyline, she’s changed a lot physically and personality-wise. The shy Mahogany who refused to talk to Ben on video calls has now started her OnlyFans page after dramatically losing weight. While Mahogany still hasn’t perfected her English, she engages with her fans on Instagram, where she shares racy content in bold outfits. During a Q&A session with her 39,000-plus followers, Mahogany discussed a fitness-based service that Ben recently launched. “You lost [a] lot of weight in 1 year. Is this about this program?” a 90 Day Fiancé fan asked, and Mahogany replied, “Let me tell my history,” she wrote and shared a mirror video of herself touching her bare midriff. “That’s me yep, eating disorders. I was not happy! This is not attractive at all! [It’s] not healthy [and] is not you! So [being] skinny…was my priority,” Mahogany added.
90 Day Fiancé Star Mahogany Says ‘You Are Not Alone’
During this phase in her life, Mahogany was “confused” and wondered why it was “hurting” her because she was a “little girl [who] didn’t know the real things.” Mahogany posted a new video of herself “being free and being happy and not obsessed.” Now “everything looks better” to her, and she believes “it all starts with your mind and that app is one of the best.” According to Mahogany, Ben’s website, called Starting Today Fitness, will not only teach one to take care of themselves but also teach how to “manage your mind and if you have any eating problems.” Mahogany continued, “I’ll be there to support you. You are not alone.”
Ben himself has been away from Instagram after his time on 90 Day Fiancé ended and his subsequent arrest in connection to a probation violation relating to his September 2020 arrest and getting fired from his job. Fans get updates from Ben only via his shared YouTube channel with Mahogany; it was on that platform he revealed they were engaged. It seems Mahogany is helping promote his new business to fans on Instagram while she claims she’s subscribed to his program as well. 90 Day Fiancé star Mahogany sparked rumors about being single again with the type of content she was posting on Instagram.
However, talking about Ben and how proud she is of his work, Mahogany has confirmed they are still together. There have been rumors of Ben and Mahogany being spotted filming in Peru amid their engagement. It’s possible the couple is back with a spin-off soon. Perception about Mahogany has changed now that fans know she is a real person. Her vulnerability shows a different side to the young 90 Day Fiancé star, who’s been mocked for her appearance in the past. It’s great that reality TV celebrity Mahogany is doing better and offering a helping hand to fans who are struggling like she was.
