If you’ve been keeping up with Rebel Wilson on Instagram, then you’re certainly aware of the Pitch Perfect star’s inspiring weight loss journey. After declaring 2020 her “Year of Health,” Wilson has been keeping fans updated on her progress with posts detailing her fitness routine, diet changes, and motivation tips.

In a new Instagram Story from Sunday, Wilson said the she has officially achieved her weight loss goal. “Hit my goal with one month to spare!” Wilson captioned a photo of a scale, which read 74.6 kgs. “Even though it’s not about a weight number, it’s about being healthy, I needed a tangible measurement to have as a goal and that was 75 kgs.”

Wilson is feeling strong after her weight loss transformation. In a November interview with Drew Barrymore, Wilson told the host she was feeling “healthier than ever” after making positive changes in her lifestyle—although she still embraces her figure just the way is. “I love my curves and stuff. I don’t think I’ll ever go too skinny, but I feel so much healthier,” she said.

After beginning her weight loss journey in January, Wilson has met her goal, but she still plans to keep up with her new lifestyle into 2021. Here’s everything we know about Wilson’s fitness and nutrition routine thus far:

1. She initially lost weight while filming Cats.

Wilson’s weight loss transformation first began while she was shooting Cats in 2019. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight in December, the 39-year-old actress said that she lost eight pounds in four days while filming. (Note that the CDC recommends one to two pounds as a safe amount to lose in a week.)

“They heated up the set very high, to almost 100°F, so that we could never cool down,” Wilson told ET. “These people are like, the best dancers in the whole world, so they can’t cool their muscles down or they could get an injury and they’d be out of the film.”

2. She cut down on sugar and junk food.

Wilson wanted to continue her weight loss journey into 2020, and declared it her “Year of Health” in early January. Wilson told Barrymore that she previously suffered from emotional eating due to fame and would eat around 3,000 calories a day. (Public health guidelines currently suggest that adult women aim to consume a range of 1,600 to 2,400 calories per day.)

“There is a lot of stress that comes with it, and I guess my way of dealing with it was just eating donuts,” she said. “So I was working on the mental side of things of ‘Why was I not doing that? Why was I not valuing myself and having better self-worth?’”

So, the actress decided to make some healthy changes. In an Instagram post on January 2, she shared three photos from a walk along the beach, and let her fans know the lifestyle changes she was planning to make, like loading up on more water while avoiding sugar and junk food. “Who’s with me in making some positive changes this year?” she wrote.

In another post from August, Wilson said one time at dinner she was “reaching for the candies,” and decided to rethink the decision. “I thought to myself ‘hmmmm…better not’ and had a bottle of water instead,” she wrote in the caption, also adding that she was just 18 pounds from her goal weight back then.

Although Wilson cuts down on sugar and junk food for the most part, she still makes room for balance. For instance, she shared a video of her enjoying a pastry in Monaco. “Remember though girls, you still gotta treat yourself 😘 🍰,” she wrote in the caption. “I just do it with food now only once or twice a week…and substitute bubble baths on alternate nights.”

3. She’s reportedly following the Mayr Method.

Wilson is said to be following the Mayr Method, a restrictive program that claims to promote weight loss by improving gut health. According to People, Wilson has achieved “amazing results” with the Mayr Method after visiting the Austrian luxury medical detox and wellness center VivaMayr.

The Mayr Method is based on the “Mayr Cure,” created by Austrian physician Franz Xaver Mayr, M.D. The plan kicks off by eliminating sugar and caffeine and suggests specific eating habits like chewing food at least 40 to 60 times. The Mayr Method also eliminates snacking and reduces gluten and dairy.

The actress told People that she recently went back to the VivaMayr resort to ensure that she met her goals. “2021 is going to be an insanely busy year with project after project, so I wanted to come back to VivaMayr,” Wilson said, adding that she hopes to “boost my immune system and lose my last two kilos.”

4. She hits the gym most days of the week.

In January, Wilson’s trainer, Jono Castano Acero, shared a video of the actress working hard in the gym with a set of battle ropes. “Friday vibes but @rebelwilson has been putting in the yards seven days a week! Proud of you girl ❤️,” Acero captioned the post.

That said, she does sneak in a rest day now and then. Acero told Today that a “typical workout week” includes a ton of high intensity interval training:

5. She gets her steps in every day.

In an interview with Hollywood Life, Acero said Wilson has been committed to her workout routine, which involves daily cardio, whether it’s running or walking. “I encourage all my clients to do an extra bit of cardio during the day to keep moving,” Acero told the outlet. “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.”

Acero said the key is to find little ways to move every day. “I guess the thing with Rebs as well, we rethink so many ways that you get around,” he told Today. “Don’t just jump in your car, like even if it’s Uber or whatever it is, think of different ways to get to your destination. Maybe it’s a walk.” He recommends aiming for 45 minutes of movement a day, no matter what that looks like in your life.

Wilson loves to walk outdoors, and she wakes up super early to ensure she gets her workouts in. In October, Wilson shared a photo during her morning hike, which begun at 6 a.m. and involved some 100 meter sprints.

6. She likes to box and flip tires.

Yep, she consistently switches things up! Wilson shared a video of her flipping a large tire as part of an outdoor workout, showing off her strength. “Starting the week off right! Look out @chrishemsworth & @liamhemsworth 👀 Australia’s latest action hero is turning it up! 💪🏻” she wrote in the caption.

Wilson also likes to box. The Cats star shared two photos and a video of her boxing in a ring.

7. She uses TRX to build strength and coordination.

Wilson’s trainer told Hollywood Life that a typical circuit Wilson does in the gym involves the assault bike (as fast as possible until she reaches 10 calories burned), battle rope slams (30 seconds), and TRX squats (20 reps). “I use the TRX as it focuses on using bodyweight and gravity as resistance to build strength, balance, coordination, flexibility, core and joint stability,” Acero said.

She also works on her core with a standing bandit trunk rotation and dead bugs with a medicine ball, which Acero says are “effective, safe, and a great way to strengthen and stabilize your core, spine, and back muscles.”

8. She holds herself accountable.

Acero encouraged Wilson to share her progress on social media in order to keep her on top of her workouts. “Keep yourself accountable, free posting on social,” he told Today. “Rebel has been posting for the whole 2020 about her journey, the ups and downs.”

Joining a community where other people post their meals and share tips during their weight loss journey can be helpful. “I think that’s definitely a massive boost if you’re trying to get fit,” Acero said.

That’s why he checks in with the actress often, not just while they’re training together. “It’s not just about 45 minutes with a person,” he said. “It’s about 24 hours, checking in.”
