Rebel Wilson spent 2020 getting healthy and on December 1st she took to Instagram to share her top weight loss tips.
Rebel Wilson, 40, is at her goal weight of “just under 75 kgs”, which is roughly 165 pounds, and on December 1st she went live on Instagram to talk about her weight loss journey and share what she called the “Rebel triangle of health.” The Australian born actress, who won our hearts with her beloved portrayal of ‘fat Amy’ in Pitch Perfect, explained to her followers that she focused on three different areas during her transformation — the physical, the nutritional and the emotional.
“Let’s start first with the physical activity,” she shared. “I know I am in a lucky position, I do have access to really amazing personal trainers, but I want you guys to know that the majority of the exercise that I’ve done this year has just been me going out for a walk…That is free. You can do it it safely, and walking is the best way for me, for my body type, to metabolize fat.”
“So, on the physical side my biggest tip guys is get out there and walk.” she continued. “If you can do an hour that’s fantastic, that’s what I like to do when I go walking.”
Rebel also encouraged her fans to lift weights and explained that she loves feeling strong. “Ladies don’t be afraid of weights. I freaking love lifting weights, it just makes you feel really strong. I love that feeling of feeling strong and powerful, and the weights are so good for you. Not only for your muscles but also for your bones as well.”
The Isn’t It Romantic star said she works out six days a week and takes Sunday as a rest day. “I am normally doing at least an hour of physical activity…But that can simply be walking. Today I just walked to the Statue of Liberty. And not at a fast pace.”
The second part of Rebel’s “triangle of health” is nutrition. She opened up about being diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome [PCOS] in college and explained that it means she needs to focus on a higher protein diet. “I don’t really have many symptoms of it,” she said, “apart from when I turned 20 I rapidly gained 30 kgs [66 lbs]. I was still doing the same things but I just rapidly gained weight. So, for my body type a high protein diet is the way to go.”
