Rebel Wilson makes dietary claim as she says people only need ‘600 calories a day’
Posted June 16, 2023 by: Admin
Rebel Wilson, the beloved actress known for her roles in Pitch Perfect and Senior Year, has been an inspiration as she openly shared her health and fitness journey in recent years, resulting in an impressive weight loss of over seventy pounds. However, it seems she has raised some eyebrows with a surprising dietary claim that challenges traditional nutritionist advice.
During a recent week-long retreat at Vivamayr medical spa in Austria, the 43-year-old star revealed her newfound knowledge about food. She shared that the program at the retreat taught her a different perspective on calorie intake. Rebel explained, “I learned that you don’t really need as many calories as you think. You really only need about 600 calories a day,” as opposed to the commonly recommended 1,500 or 2,000 calories. She emphasized that by eating right and consuming smaller portions, one can maintain good health. Her words, spoken at the launch party for her Fluid dating app in Beverly Hills, caught the attention of many.
It’s important to note that Rebel clarified that this advice was not intended for daily routine and might seem unconventional. The context of the retreat was focused on detoxification, where the body requires fewer calories. It remains uncertain whether she followed this plan during her time at the Austrian retreat, and she made it clear that it was not a recommendation for everyday life.
Rebel Wilson has been candid about her weight loss journey, revealing that contractual obligations with the Pitch Perfect franchise previously hindered her progress. During her portrayal of ‘Fat Amy,’ she felt obligated to maintain her weight for the role. However, she has always expressed her appreciation for the character, never taking offense, but also wanting to avoid being typecast as ‘the fat funny friend.’
In 2020, Rebel achieved her target weight after undergoing a transformative “year of health,” shedding over 5.5 stone. She embarked on this fitness journey after learning that it would enhance her chances of conceiving a child, as she had aspirations of starting a family. Last year, Rebel and her partner Ramona Agruma joyfully welcomed their first baby, Royce Lillian, through surrogacy. Their journey to parenthood had been marked by years of fertility struggles, making the arrival of their little one even more precious.
