Rebel Wilson’s Diet


Wilson began losing weight while filming Cats as the role was physically demanding. Her initial progress encouraged her to continue. She enrolled in the Mayr Method Diet at the VivaMayr health center in Australia. The diet has restrictions during the initial phase including eating no gluten, dairy, or other common food allergens or processed food. It also includes a lot of chewing. Wilson also had to give up alcohol, caffeine, and sugar for the first two weeks. She focused on protein at all meals: eggs or a protein shake for breakfast, and meat and veggies for lunch and dinner. Carbs aren’t entirely off the menu, however and she might have polenta or other whole grains. Although she sometimes falls off the wagon, she has lost 60 lbs. and is very proud of her accomplishment.

Diet Details


Food Rules

The idea behind giving up processed foods, gluten, dairy, and sugar is to allow the gut to heal from damage due to allergens and unhealthy eating habits.


Chew, Chew, Chew

With the Mayr Method, food should be chewed 40 times before swallowing. This has 3 effects: it breaks down your food which aids in the digestive process; it slows you down so your body has time to signal satiation; and it also forces you to pay attention to what you’re eating.


Dry Meals

Meals on the Mayr Method are eaten every 4 hours. They’re taken without drinks as it is believed liquids can dilute digestive acids, thus impeding digestion.


Choose Your Beverages Wisely

Besides giving up alcohol, caffeine and sugar, Wilson now sticks to green tea and only has coffee occasionally.


Light Dinner

Wilson’s biggest meal of the day is lunch, typically a salad with protein such as smoked salmon or grilled turkey breast. Dinner is a smaller version of lunch, and all veggies must be cooked because in the Mayr Method raw vegetables are believed to be difficult to digest.


No Screens

The Mayr Method also does not allow the use of screens during meals, again, so the individual focuses solely on what they’re eating.


Serious Sweet Tooth

Wilson admits to having a raging sweet tooth and will eat any donut in sight, but she is committed to her goal of healthy eating and does not let her cravings get out of control.

If you eat cake and Ho Hos, and that’s all you eat, that’s what your body uses to regenerate cells, that’s what your body uses to grow. All of your tissue is eventually going to be made out of everything you eat.

Wilson on Becoming An Actress

‘I got malaria really badly and was put in intensive care, and I had a hallucination because they give you this cocktail of drugs…I had this hallucination that I was at the Oscars and I won…it was so real that when I came out of the hospital, I started saying to people “I’m going to become an actress.”’


Wilson on What Matters

‘Work hard to achieve integrity in your work and your relationships with the people you work with.’


Wilson on Her Weight

‘I stay fat because it just wouldn’t be fair to all the thin people if I were this good-looking, intelligent, funny, and thin. It’s a public service, really.’


Wilson on Body Image

‘I think women out there should just be happy with the way they look. They shouldn’t really try to conform to any kind of stereotype. Just be happy and hopefully healthy.’
