Earlier this week, dietitian and exercise physiologist Kate Save told Daily Mail Australia that she believes Rebel has lost up to 18kg (40lbs or 2.8 stone).  

Save, who is the director of Peninsula Physical Health and Nutrition and CEO of Be Fit Food, arrived at the estimation by studying before-and-after photos of the star. 

‘My team aligned at 16 to 18kg given that her height is quite short [5ft 2in],’ she said.

Rebel, who vowed to slim down to 75kg, updated fans on her health and fitness journey during an interview on Sunrise on Monday.

‘There’s been a lot of working out, which was hard with the coronavirus restrictions,’ she said. 

Rebel added that she was happy gyms were finally reopening in Australia because she was ready to step up her training and ‘pump iron’.  

Last month, the Hollywood star vowed to slim down to 75kg (165lbs or 11.8 stone).

‘Even if you have to crawl towards your goals, keep going – it would be worth it,’ Rebel wrote on Instagram.

‘Try and give a little bit of effort each day. I know some days are frustrating as hell, you feel like giving up, you get annoyed at the lack of progress [but] good things are coming your way.’

Rebel’s personal trainer, Jono Castano Acero, recently shared the star’s workout routine with E! Australia.

During a typical week, she does a combination of HIIT workouts, mobility, weights and resistance, and has just one day per week of rest.
