Rebel Wilson’s two-stone weight loss – how the Pitch Perfect star shed the pounds – The Sun

REBEL Wilson turned heads at the Oscars Vanity Fair party on Sunday night – as she showcased her impressive weight loss and slimmed down waist.

The Pitch Perfect star, 39, looked remarkably trimmer as she sported a slinky pink gown for the star-studded bash.

And many fans, desperate to follow in her footsteps, were left asking exactly how Rebel, who played Fat Amy, managed to trim down.

Here, we talk through the main ways the Aussie actress has managed to shed the pounds in the space of just a few months.

1. Circuit training

Rebel, real name Patricia, has given her fans an insight into her fitness regime – by sharing videos of her gym workouts.

In one clip, Rebel can be seen doing circuit training including weight exercises, squats and lunges – before finishing off with ab exercises.

She captioned the post: “Gotta keep up that stamina! Here’s a part of my gym workout today.

“I also did 60 minutes of cardio (which is boring to film) and stretching to end it all right."

Another video posted by the star shows her running on a treadmill while on the top deck of a boat.

She captioned it: "Gotta get in that at sea workout x"

2. Cardio seven days a week

Rebel has a personal trainer, called Jono Castano Acero, who encourages Rebel to do some form of cardio every single day.

“I encourage all my clients to do an extra bit of cardio during the day to keep moving,” he said.

“A little tip is get a watch or use your phone to count steps and aim for 10,000 steps a day. If you’re on 9,000 steps at 10 p.m. you have to get it done.”

Jono recently bragged about Rebel's grit on Instagram, saying: "Rebel Wilson has been putting in the yards seven days a week. Proud of you gurl."

3. Ditching sugar and junk food

Rebel made a New Year's resolution at the start of 2020 to ditch her unhealthy eating habits and kickstart "The Year of Health".

She wrote on Instagram: "Okay so for me 2020 is going to be called ‘The Year of Health.

"So I put on the athleisure and went out for a walk, deliberately hydrating on the couch right now and trying to avoid the sugar and junk food, which is going to be hard after the holidays I’ve just had but I’m going to do it! Who’s with me in making some positive changes this year?"

4. Dancing

Rebel lost weight while filming the movie Cats – due to all the rigorous and demanding dance routines she had to learn.

On top of that, the set was kept at a steamy 100 degrees to ensure that the dancers did not cool down between takes and injure themselves when they got back at it.

All that led to a quick eight pound loss in just four days.

"I lost eight pounds, shooting my number, in four days," Rebel said.

"One, because there’s a lot of physicalities… but also, they heated up the set very high, to almost 100 [degrees] Fahrenheit, so that we could never cool down."

5. Stop counting calories

Rebel previously revealed that she has stopped counting her total calorie intake, and instead focuses on her fibre intake.

In particular, a minimum of 35 grams of fibre is a must to maximise weight loss.

Experts say high fibre foods are complex carbohydrates that offer energy for long durations and prevent cravings. It also controls your blood sugar and keeps you feeling full for a longer time.

6. Fitness retreats

Rebel recently attended a luxury weight loss, wellness, and fitness retreat in Malibu called The Ranch.

She spent four days there learning how to switch up her lifestyle and Rebel says she lost eight pounds while spending time there.

Speaking about the retreat on Instagram, Rebel wrote: “OMG just finished four fantastic days at #TheRanch4.0 …so challenging but very rewarding!

"Not to mention I lost 8 pounds from marathon hiking over the four days! Thanks to the amazing staff and masseuses (free daily massages are part of the program)!! Feeling great!!"

Other celebs who have spent time at The Ranch include Julianne Hough, Selma Blair and Mandy Moore.

7. Being confident

Even before her weight loss, Rebel Wilson was well known for her self-confidence and body positivity.

Health experts say that confidence is key to shedding the pounds as when when you recognise that your self-worth is not dependent on your weight, it frees you to focus on what is most important (your physical and mental health).

Speaking about her body type, Rebel previously said: "Being unique and different was a really good thing.

"I walked into my agent’s office for the first time, they looked at me and said, ‘Wow, we have nobody on our books like you’.

"And they signed me on my second day here… I wouldn’t ever want to compete with what I call ‘the glamours’ – the really gorgeous people.

"I’m about the brain, the heart and what’s on the inside. I feel really lucky to be the body type I am."
