If you’ve been following Rebel Wilson on social media, you probably noticed her jaw-dropping weight loss transformation. The Pitch Perfect star has announced that 2020 is her “Year of Health” and trimmed down a staggering 60 pounds (27 kgs).

So what is Wilson’s big weight loss secret? Was it a result of traditional methods like diet, exercise, and fitness? Or was it a more aggressive approach, like weight loss surgery?

Rebel Wilson’s Biography

Rebel Wilson is an Australian actress, comedian, writer, and producer, best known for her “Pitch Perfect” movie role. Wilson’s extravagant performance in the 2019 song-and-dance movie Cats is also worth mentioning. While she’s known for her comedic skills, Wilson is now turning heads with her incredible new look.

Fortunately, the Aussie has been open about her weight loss journey on Instagram. And now we have to ask, how did she do it?

What Prompted Rebel Wilson’s Weight Loss?

Rebel Wilson Instagram Sharing Weight Loss JourneyFinally, Wilson had enough! As she approached her 40th birthday, she set a sixty-pound weight reduction goal. Oddly enough, Rebel had always felt comfortable with being overweight and liked her curves.

The Cats star used to eat 3000 calories a day and started gaining pounds rapidly since she was twenty years old. As a result, she was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) at an early age, a hormonal disorder affecting overweight women.

The comedian revealed her inspiration to live a healthier lifestyle stemmed from current events surrounding fertility and COVID-19. She wanted to freeze her eggs before she passes 40 years old and wanted them to be high quality.

She ramped up her transformation efforts during the 2020 pandemic by cutting down on sugar and junk food and exercising daily with personal trainers using assault bikes and TRX. Rebel Wilson followed the Mayr method, called “Mayr Cure,” developed by Dr. Franz Xaver Mayr, an Austrian physician.

Rebel Wilson has gone back to Austria’s VivaMayr luxury resort to ‘Lose Her Last Two Kilos.’

The extreme makeover helped Rebel be more active with Jacob Busch, her current boyfriend; she first went public in September. She posted her skiing pictures from the slopes of Aspen, Colorado.

Did Rebel Wilson Have Weight Loss Surgery?

She has been sharing her diet, exercise routine, and motivational tips to promote healthy lifestyles on her social media platforms.

However, her weight loss has been remarkable within a short period of time, which is a typical result of bariatric surgery. Rebel’s weight loss timeline matches characteristics of bariatric surgery patients, i.e. 1 to 2 lbs per week.

Losing weight is incredibly challenging if you have to battle with PCOS syndrome, genetics, and emotional eating. That is why individuals seek bariatric surgery to get rid of extra pounds, become fertile, and live a healthy life.

So, did Wilson resort to weight loss surgery in Mexico? Can she keep it up? While possible, it may be something we’re left pondering unless the actress tells us herself.

What Now?

Rebel and Adele are the only public figures that lost a huge amount of weight in 2020. For the most part, Adele has been quiet about her weight loss and has not revealed her diet and exercise. Rebel has been more vocal with her 9 million Instagram followers, posting regularly about her new Mayr method diet and fitness routine.

But did the comedian supplement her traditional methods with bariatric surgery? The rumors have it that she did undergo a surgical procedure, like the sleeve gastrectomy or gastric bypass. We will know only if Wilson decides to share the more intimate details of her journey with the world.
