Rebel Wilson, 40, discussed her weight loss with Ant Middleton, Straight Talking on Sky One. She made a heartbreaking admission to the former-military man.
“I wasn’t loving myself in the way that I should from 20 to 40 – that’s 20 years,” Rebel said.
“I feel so sad that I did that to myself, just not loving yourself in the right way.”
Rebel went on: “It’s hard because I was so self-confident and don’t want to project a message to people that girls can’t be happy with themselves at bigger, plus sizes, because I was living the life.”
Shockingly, the actress told Ant she has been trolled for her weight loss efforts online.
This coupled with polycystic ovary syndrome caused weight gain.
Reframing her view of view helped her slim down, Rebel says.
She told Ant: “What I realise is that, it wasn’t treating myself eating 2,000 calories for dessert, that’s not treating myself, that is putting toxins in my body that I don’t need.
“Is it momentary comfort? Yes. But the next hour it’s fat and it’s not healthy for you.”
“I’m working on self love, and that’s a hard concept to master.”
Rebel told fans she’s been eating under 1,500 calories a day while exercising “like a beast”.
She said: “Nutritionally, the only thing is I do try to stay under 1,500 calories because of my body type.
“If want to lose weight in that week, I kind of have to stay under the 1,500 each day.”
