Meet the woman who’s ‘too fat to work’ and refused NHS weight-loss surgery so she can stay on benefits



A morbidly obese woman who claimed £75,000 in benefits because she’s too fat to work has refused weight-loss surgery – because she’d rather be on benefits.

Former Pub chef Jodie Sinclair, who weighs 28st, lives in a rent-free council home in Peterborough, where she collects a monthly Disability Living Allowance and Income Support.

But Ms Sinclair – who says she’s ‘too fat to work’ – has repeatedly declined to have NHS-funded weight-loss surgery because she’d ‘rather be on benefits than go under the knife’.

‘I’m not going ­under the knife for ­anyone because I don’t think I’m doing anything wrong,’ the 28-year-old said.



‘Doctors keep on shouting at me to lose weight but I don’t even eat that much. My cooked breakfasts are my treat. My mum would come over every day and we would have sausage, ­bacon, beans and toast but the dietician had a go at me for that.

‘I wasn’t going to give up my breakfasts.’

Ms Sinclair’s average daily intake is a fry-up or sausage roll for breakfast, sandwiches for lunch, crisps as a snack and pasta for diner.

Despite being advised by several doctors to have gastric band fitted, Ms Sinclair, who uses a mobility scooter to get around, insists her size is due to fluid retention – not poor diet or lack of exercise.

She also believes she should be entitled to a free cleaner because she’s ‘too big’ to keep her home hygienic.

Sew her mouth and strap her to a tread mill.And ban her from all takeaways.I bet they are making there money out of her.
Some even can t afford to buy food and depend on food banks.Am really disgusted at this News article.
She even got a bloody xbox,mobile phone you name it she got it.

Programmes on this mornings TV . One stated there are 31 takeaways in a one and a half mile stretch of road in Liverpool. I clocked the phone number of one and it was in the poorer areas of the city ! So no poverty there.
Second programme discussed obesity in children and the idea of fizzy drinks being taxed highly etc.
When I was a girl we never had fizzy drinks apart from a small glass of pop as a treat when we went to grandma's house to visit. (Once in blue moon)We drank tap water or milk . We didn't have bought cakes or snacks,only a home made one, maybe once a fortnight and that was limited to a slice each. No convenience foods, meals were all home cooked and we didn't eat between meals. People didn't drink anything like we do now and most walked everywhere. School P.E. lessons of 3 double periods a week.
Times have changed and everyone has been encouraged to eat trash and fillers for most of the day. That has been good for business as it kept the retail food industry at great heights and the supermarkets on a winner. We only have to look at the aisles of crisps and alcohol to see that.
We should have a degree of empathy for the above mentioned, unfortunately she suffers from obstinacy also. She may not wish to give anything up in her life, but it could be on the cards, that life will give up on her.
Can't see that financially the cost will be much difference, i.e. between benefits or surgery and health care. So far as exercise is concerned, well it's a non starter I suppose.
I too am overweight and need more exercise like many, although I hasten to add, not on the same level as above, so for those of us who do not take our own life to task , we should.

Didn't stop Cyril Smith from a political career. I refrained from adding an adjective before his name.

Poverty, yes! Lack of education- also, yes. Seacombe has a lot of chippies/ pizza places in a condensed area. Who uses them? No idea.
