Rebel Wilson says she ate ‘3,000 calories most days’ before weight loss journey


Rebel Wilson opened up about her weight loss journey.

The “Bridesmaids” actress, 40, took time to reflect on her "year of health" by going into detail about how she’s been getting healthy.

Wilson told PEOPLE that shifting to a high-protein diet has been an important step in her current weight loss transformation.

“Before I was probably eating 3,000 calories most days, and because they were normally carbs, I would still be hungry,” the star told the outlet.

“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,” she explained, adding, “I eat fish, salmon, and chicken breast.”

The actress recently said that she’s down about 40 pounds, the outlet reports.

While she’s made progress with the diet, Wilson says she still lets up for the occasional cheat meal.

“It doesn't mean every week is a healthy week,” said Wilson, who recently partnered with Uber Eats and Hinge for the Uber Eats-exclusive Chipotle Cuffing Season Menu available thru Dec. 5.

“Some weeks are just write offs, and there’s nothing you can do about that,” she added.

Throughout her journey, Wilson says she is emphasizing “healthy balance” above all.

"I'm just trying to go for overall balance, overall healthy balance," she explained. "I have this state of being, which is not my quote, but I go 'Nothing is forbidden.' We’ll be like, 'Should we get In-N-Out burger?' And I'm like, 'Nothing is forbidden.' I can go there, I just might eat half of what I used to eat before. You know? And I'll have a burger, and a few fries, and then you feel fine."

The “Pitch Perfect” star has been public about her healthy journey, showing off her svelte physique and workout gear on social media.
