Rebel Wilson first slimmed down after branding 2020 a “year of health”. This saw her lose around 5st 7lb and she opened up on her weight loss transformation in a recent interview.
Speaking to Apple Fitness+, the Australian actor praised the benefits of walking for weight loss.
She said: “The doctor said to me, ‘Rebel, the best way for you to lose unwanted body fat is just simply walking’.
“‘Doesn’t have to be high-intensity, doesn’t have to be uphill, just moderate walking an hour a day.
“’And if you can do that, for you, for your body type, it’s, like, the best way to lose unwanted body fat.’”
Walking can burn around 300 calories in one hour, according to studies.
As well as gentle exercise, Rebel has shared clips of her doing high intensity workouts in the gym.
These have included the actor training with PT Jono Castano.
The celebrity trainer previously spoke to Express.co.uk to share the top tips to follow when trying to lose weight or live more healthily.
Drinking water should not be underestimated, the expert explained.
This can help dieters flush out excess waste and improve overall health.
Jono said: “Staying hydrated has so many added benefits for your body.
“It helps with digestion, absorbs nutrients and gets rid of waste products.”
“It also keeps you fuller for longer as when you are thirsty, you can mistake that for hunger,” Jono added.
Calories in v calories out
While there are lots of different diet plans on the market, the trainer stated weight loss ultimately comes down to calories.
He said the simplest way to stay in shape is to not overeat.
Eating a balanced plan is also important and slimmers should aim to eat a mix of all nutrients.
“For any body transformation, it always comes down to this simple equation,” Jono continued.
“Always include a balance of good fats, protein, carbs and fibre in your diet to ensure you are getting the most out of your food.”
Eat to be satisfied
Slimmers should be aware of when they feel full and not eat past this, Jono advised.
He said: “Overeating can leave you feeling full, sluggish and tired as your body is using more energy to digest.
“Eating mindfully helps you understand when you have had enough food.”
