So Rebel Wilson has lost a ton of weight?
At one point a few years ago, she topped the scales at a weight over 300 pounds and carried over 40% body fat. But how much has she lost? What diet did she use to lose the weight?
Rebel Wilson is a wildly successful actress who enjoyed her greatest success in the movie, “Bridesmaids”.
This role propelled her to stardom, and other movies including “Pitch Perfect”, “How To Be Single”, and “Night At The Museum”. were also huge successes. In a few short years, Rebel Wilson had become one of the biggest stars in the world.
However, she is arguably best known for being overweight. She is one of the rare Hollywood starlets who managed to be successful despite having serious weight issues.
Yet, with the advent of social media, Wilson has become a target of many insensitive individuals who take pleasure in poking fun at her size. Fat jokes have been a part of her life for a long time, although it should be pointed out, Wilson herself was responsible for telling some of those.
Still, Wilson admits that her weight is a large part of what made her famous in the first place.
Yet, time changes all things and one thing that has changed is Wilson’s mindset. The Australian finally realized that she could still be successful without the extra weight and that there was much more to her uniqueness.
So in 2020, like so many others, she made a New Years Resolution. Wilson chose to make 2020 her “Year of Health”. and get serious about losing the body fat. it was time to change her diet and exercise on a regular schedule.
But unlike so many others, she is sticking to her resolution (thus far). The actress is currently excelling at changing her eating and workout habits and the result?…the weight is dropping off very quickly.
In fact, she seems to becoming almost unrecognizable compared to her former heavy self.
The weight loss journey for Wilson actually began back in 2016. That is when she revealed in an interview with Cosmopolitan that she had a hormonal imbalance that made her more prone to gaining weight.
In other words, she was an emotional eater. Simply put, food is a drug to her, and she is addicted.
“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.”
The Rebel Wilson Weight Loss Secret
Having money has many benefits (that’s what I heard, I wouldn’t know!), and one of them is you can hire a highly recommended personal trainer which Wislon did; Jono Castano Acero. (seen below).
Acero is a trainer to the stars and he does get fantastic results. His mantra is to move constantly and stop all the sitting.

Wilson completely changed the way she eats, adopting a much healthier diet. She makes it a point to avoid simple carbohydrates at all costs. Some of these foods include: white grains, sugar and sugar-filled foods, processed foods and more.
She replaced these foods with complex carbs which stabilize blood sugar and keep you full longer, reducing cravings. These include fruits and vegetables among other foods.
Also, Wilson added healthy fats to her diet including nuts avocados, fish oil and seeds.
She finally gave up frustrating things like counting calories as it seemed pointless and wasn’t working for her.
As an emotional eater, Wilson was used to eating constantly. Her solution was to adapt her snacking habits to much healthier choices. She found a few that became staples of her diet:
- Carrots and cucumber with guacamole.
- Zucchini chips with vegetable hummus.
- Cashews, almonds, and other nuts.
- Celery, carrot, and almond butter.
- Celery and apple cider vinegar.
Also, the actress has ditched her favorites sodas for water and unsweetened tea. She attempts to drink water throughout the day which is a good idea for all of us to try.
While always appearing comfortable in her own skin to her fans, changing her body seems to have dramatically boosted her confidence.
In a word, she appears “radiant”.
Rebel Wilson is a poster-child for weight loss in my opinion. She completely changed her habits and embraced fitness as well as a healthy way of eating. No weight loss surgery, no fad diet, or other shortcuts here.
