Rebel Wilson Weight Loss - What Motivated Rebel Wilson To Lose Weight

Rebel’s weight loss journey began in 2016. In 2015, in an interview with Cosmopolitan, Rebel had disclosed, “Being unique and different was a really good thing. I walked into my agent’s office for the first time, they looked at me and said, ‘Wow, we have nobody on our books like you’. And they signed me on my second day here…I wouldn’t ever want to compete with what I call ‘the glamours’ – the really gorgeous people. I’m about the brain, the heart and what’s on the inside. I feel really lucky to be the body type I am.”

In the same interview, Rebel revealed that the hormonal imbalance in her body makes her more prone to weight gain. Food is her drug, meaning that she loves to eat when she is feeling happy or sad. She said, “I love me some ice cream or dessert, and it comes at times when I’m happy or sad. So when I have an incredibly stressful day, I want to celebrate and reward myself with food. If I’ve had a sad or stressful day, food is also comfort. You would probably describe it as emotional or stress-eating…eating is my one vice. I wouldn’t ever want to totally give it up.”

Rebel Wilson did not want to change her looks just on the outside; she decided to shed the extra inches to be fit and healthy. Emotional eating or stress eating is something that most of us struggle with. So, you must take it seriously and make an effort to get rid of this habit. How did Rebel do it? Find out next.

 Rebel Wilson’s Weight Loss Diet

Rebel Wilson had to tweak her lifestyle to lose weight. She talked to a few of her friends in Hollywood, who had lost weight or had sound advice for her. And here’s what she did to lose 35 pounds:

  • No Counting Calories

Rebel stopped counting calories and started counting the amount of dietary fiber she was consuming per day. Counting calories (a) is not an accurate when it comes to caloric and nutrition value of certain foods, and (b) can prevent you from consuming foods that are good for your body just because the calories are on the higher side.

  • Consume Veggies And Fruits

Veggies and fruits are loaded with dietary fiber and are great for those trying to lose a few pounds. The vitamins, minerals, and other phytonutrients also protect you from diseases, inflammation, hair loss, etc.

  • Consume Healthy Fats

Healthy fats help reduce inflammation and inflammation-induced weight gain. Rebel consumed healthy fats like avocado, olive oil, nuts, and seeds to keep her hunger cravings at bay and reduce the stress state of her body.

  • Have Healthy Snacks

Rebel Wilson loves to eat. But to lose weight, she had to ditch her regular high-fat, unhealthy snacks. She included one or two of the following healthy snacks in her diet:

  • A handful of cashews, almonds, or Brazil nuts.
  • Celery and apple cider vinegar.
  • Celery, carrot, and almond butter.
  • Chicken breast with olive oil and guacamole.
  • Zucchini chips with vegetable hummus.
  • Carrot and cucumber with guacamole.

These are pretty basic but highly effective ways to lose the initial few pounds. And by a few, I mean up to 30 pounds, depending on your current body weight, medications, medical history, and adherence to the plan. But just a diet plan change is not sufficient. Rebel Wilson knew it, and here’s what she did to lose weight rapidly.

Rebel Wilson Workout Plan

In April 2015, Rebel posted this Instagram photo and captioned it, “OMG just finished 4 fantastic days at #TheRanch4.0 … so challenging but very rewarding! Not to mention I lost 8 pounds from marathon hiking over the 4 days! Thanks to the amazing staff and masseuses (free daily massages are part of the program)!! Feeling great!!”

It is clear that Rebel Wilson worked out regularly to keep the fat from clinging back to her body. She also loves playing tennis, jogs, and frequently goes on hiking trips. When she is not indulging in any outdoor sports activity, she works out at the gym 3-4 days a week for 30 minutes.

The trick is to keep yourself active. When you burn the calories you consume, you will automatically lose weight.

Yes, Rebel Wilson lost weight, and you can too. But the real problem is staying motivated. Scroll down to know how this 37-year-old star keeps herself motivated and what she to say to all those who are struggling to lose weight.

  • Adhere To The Plan

Rebel loves to eat, and she loves to have dessert every day. But she also shifts gears from desserts to celery and hummus. And this is what you should be able to do.

Of course, you can enjoy a cheat day every week, but you have to earn it. When you adhere to healthy eating for six days a week, the seventh day will feel like the best day of your life. Not only will you be able to consume more calories, but your confidence will also get a boost.

  • Drink Water

To lose weight and prevent yourself from mindlessly consuming calories, you must drink water. A lot of times, when you are thirsty and do not drink water, your brain misreads the signal as hunger. As a result, you consume more calories. So, make it a point to drink a cup or two of water every hour.

  • Be Confident Of Your Body

You can be in shape and still not exude positive energy if you are not confident about your body and how you look. And confidence doesn’t come with expensive clothes or jewelry. It only comes when you do the right thing and do not take yourself for granted. Love the body you have, take care of every inch of you. Eat healthily, sleep well, take less stress, groom yourself, go on a trip, and learn a few new skills.

If Rebel Wilson can lose weight, you can too. If you are struggling to lose weight, take a step back and see where you are going wrong. If needed, consult a doctor to find out if it is any medical condition or medication that is preventing you from losing the extra flab. And remember, there is no “someday.” It is NOW! Take the step forward today and give it your best shot. You will succeed for sure. Good luck!
