Rebel Wilson reveals the extraordinary secret to her 30kg weight loss – and it didn’t involve gruelling workouts or strict dieting

Actress Rebel Wilson says she’s never felt better after following one consistent routine during her 30kg weight loss journey.

The 41-year-old comedian spoke to Shape about her ‘year of health’ and said it was regular walking, not gruelling workouts, that helped her shift the kilos. 

She revealed that ‘moderate walking’ was actually a key component to her weight loss that helped her shed ‘unnecessary body fat’.

‘I never properly considered wellness from all angles,’ she said of her transformation.

‘But I was turning 40 and thinking about freezing my eggs, and the experts told me that the healthier I am, the better the process can go.’

Rebel admitted she sometimes gets emotional when she thinks about why she didn’t place more importance on her health earlier.

‘It just wasn’t a priority, and I didn’t know how to do it right,’ she said.

She has also incorporated healthier eating habits, with an emphasis on eating nutritious, high-protein foods.

‘The goal was never to be skinny,’ she said. ‘It was never to fit into a certain dress size. I put in a weight because I needed some tangible thing.’ 

Rebel continued: ‘What I’m proud of myself is doing that and having a lot more balance now in my life.’
