Rebel Wilson previously revealed that she was paid a huge sum of money to get bigger.
During an interview, Rebel Wilson said that this kind of messed with her head. Eventually, the Pitch Perfect actress decided to take better care of herself.
“It’s about dealing mentally with why I was overeating and the physical part, doing a lot of personal training and nutrition. I’ve been trying a lot of different things to be healthy,” she said.
Rebel Wilson didn’t reportedly crash diet
New York-based internist and gastroenterologist Dr. Niket Sonpal said that he’s glad Wilson didn’t crash diet. And based on his estimation, he thinks that the actress lost at least 50 pounds.
“It appears she’s dropped 50 pounds from when she was at her heaviest, which looked like about 220 pounds. Slow and steady is the way to win the battle in weight loss, and it seems Rebel is doing just that,” Sonpal told In Touch Weekly.
Wilson recently showed off her dramatic weight loss on Instagram while teasing a Pitch Perfect news. In the snap, Wilson is wearing a figure-hugging red dress.
Rebel Wilson included a cryptic caption that says, “The show must go on.”
Rebel Wilson talks about her weight loss journey
Last month, the funny woman also talked about her weight and eating struggles. While talking to Today Extra, the 40-year-old actress said that she suffers from emotional eating due to the stresses of her job.
“I’m determined. So, I am trying to lose a lot of my body fat and become a healthier person. It’s not so much about a number,” she said.
Wilson also said that she has been exercising. However, it has been difficult to incorporate her workouts due to the coronavirus pandemic. The actress also said that her goal is to weigh 165 pounds.
“Even if you have to crawl towards your goals, keep going – it would be worth it,’ Rebel wrote on Instagram. Try and give a little bit of effort each day. I know some days are frustrating as hell, you feel like giving up, you get annoyed at the lack of progress [but] good things are coming your way,” she said.
While speaking with Daily Mail, dietitian, and exercise psychologist Kate Save said that she thinks the actress lost at least 40 pounds.
Rebel Wilson is best known for her role as Fat Amy in the Pitch Perfect film series.
