Rebel Wilson Talks 40 Pound Weight Loss, What She Ate Before, & What She Eats Now

Rebel Wilson is opening up about her “year of health” and losing 40 pounds in the process.

The 40-year-old Pitch Perfect actress chatted with People about what she used to eat and what she eats now.

“Before I was probably eating 3,000 calories most days, and because they were normally carbs, I would still be hungry,” Rebel said. “So, I’ve really changed to eating a high-protein diet, which is challenging because I didn’t used to eat a lot of meat. I eat fish, salmon, and chicken breast.”

Rebel did admit that she cheats on her meal plan.

“It doesn’t mean every week is a healthy week,” she said. “Some weeks are just write offs, and there’s nothing you can do about that.”

“I’m just trying to go for overall balance, overall healthy balance,” she said. “I have this state of being, which is not my quote, but I go ‘Nothing is forbidden.’ We’ll be like, ‘Should we get In-N-Out burger?’ And I’m like, ‘Nothing is forbidden.’ I can go there, I just might eat half of what I used to eat before. You know? And I’ll have a burger, and a few fries, and then you feel fine.”

Rebel credits the pandemic with allowing her to change her habits.

“I definitely think with the slow down, it did help,” she said. “I think I was emotional eating, and overeating at times, because I wasn’t loving myself enough either. And it does come down to that self worth and self love.”

Earlier this month, Rebel revealed how she was injured while taking “hot photos” at the beach in Mexico.
