Rebel Wilson has lost over 60 pounds, making her healthier than ever. The actress is so proud of losing her weight and transforming her body, a source recently told Us Weekly.

After promising to improve her health in 2020, Rebel Wilson lost 165 pounds before the end of November. She owes her success in part to Jono Castano, her trainer, and her dedication to her goal.

To help Wilson reach her slim figure, Castano used lots of high-intensity interval training, starting each workout session with some cardio and then progressing to weight training, the source explained.

A FAST RESULT

With Wilson's personalized workouts, results were quickly visible. A weekly program, designed by Castano, alternated workouts with other forms of exercise like swimming and yoga.

On top of switching up her workouts, Wilson switched to a low-carb, high-protein diet, ensuring she would burn more calories than she ate. Castano also advised her to take one cheat day per week.

In addition to losing weight, her healthy diet and active lifestyle greatly increased her self-esteem. Now that Wilson's eating right and working out, her glow is even more intense than ever, said the source.

SHE JUST WANTS TO INSPIRE OTHERS

In an interview with PEOPLE, Wilson described the importance of not looking at the numbers when losing weight. As she explained, she just strives to make everyone as healthy as they can be.

"That doesn't necessarily mean being smaller in size, it just means not engaging in unhealthy behaviors. I like to think I look good at all sizes," the "Pitch Perfect" actress said.

As she proceeded, Wilson, who is known for her role as Toula on the series "Pizza," also learned a lot about "emotional eating" and how to give herself kindness when worn out or feeling tired.

REFLECTING ON HER STRUGGLE

Wilson reflected on her twenty years of struggle, saying she has taken a long journey and has learned many things, including walking on a daily basis, eating more protein, and just being appreciative.

Wilson has become an ambassador for OLLY nutritional supplements. The actress has held a positive relationship with OLLY and said that she takes them every day.

In a recent appearance on the radio show "The Morning Crew With Hughesy, Ed, and Erin," Wilson discussed the change she has seen in other people after her dramatic weight loss.

Because she's in good shape, Wilson said she gets offers from people to help carry groceries and open doors for her. Formerly, she noted, people didn't really pay attention to her because of her size.
