Rebel Wilson says she was eating 3,000 calories a day before dropping 40 pounds on weight loss journey – The Sun
REBEL Wilson has revealed she used to eat 3,000 calories a day before dropping 40 pounds.
The Bridesmaids star, 40, said she would dine out on carbs and "still feel hungry" afterwards.
Rebel – who vowed to overhaul her diet and fitness at the start of 2020 – opened up about her previous unhealthy habits to People.
"Before I was probably eating 3,000 calories most days, and because they were normally carbs, I would still be hungry," the Pitch Perfect star 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.”
The Australian actress added: “It doesn't mean every week is a healthy week. Some weeks are just write offs, and there’s nothing you can do about that.”
Rebel explained that she won't deny herself any treats – but will eat them in moderation. So instead of a whole burger, she'll eat half and "feel fine".
The Isn't It Romantic star added that being in lockdown for most of the year helped her to address her outlook on food and change “bad habits to healthier ones.”
“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."
Rebel may have overhauled her lifestyle, but she's also spruced up her love life and is now dating billionaire heir, Jacob Busch.
She recently revealed that she began dating Jacob before her 40-pound makeover and told trolls "he likes me for me".
Rebel told E! News: "Some people on social media say, 'Oh, well you lost weight and then you got a hot boyfriend.' But, what I do want to say to those people is that I actually dated Jacob when I was at my heaviest as well.
"So, it's not like I suddenly lost weight, and then you're like, oh, you get a hot boyfriend—that's not how it works. This guy liked me at 100 kilos and now 75 kilos."
The Hustle star added: "I just want to clear out that. There's something really comforting in that to me because you're like, oh, it wasn't necessarily of what my body type was. He really likes me for me."
Rebel's personal trainer recently shared the secret to her weight loss.
Sydney-based personal trainer Jono Castono explained that she works out at least five times a week and does 10,000 steps on the other days.
She also chews food up to 30 times before swallowing to ensure she stops eating when she's full.
