Los Angeles, Nov 17 (IANS) Actress Rebel Wilson reveals she used to have 3,000 calories on most days before she started her weight loss journey.
“Before I was probably eating 3,000 calories most days, and because they were normally carbs, I would still be hungry,” Wilson told people.com.
She added: “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. I eat fish, salmon, and chicken breast.”
The actress says does not believe that “every week is a healthy week”, adding: “Some weeks are just write offs, and there’s nothing you can do about that”.
“I’m just trying to go for overall balance, overall healthy balance. 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,” she said.
The pandemic has also helped her with her weight loss.
“I really took it as time to get really well-rested and de-stress. Because most of my stress is work-related,” she said.
It gave Wilson a chance to work with her mindset about food “bad habits to healthier ones”.
“I definitely think with the slow down, it did help,” she says. “I think I was emotional eating, and overeating at times, because I wasn’t loving myself enough either. And it does come down to that self worth and self love.”
