Rebel Wilson’s “Year of Health” paid off in a big way. The Pitch Perfect star lost almost 80 pounds *and* reached her goal weight. But more importantly, she seems really happy with her lifestyle changes.

A quick scroll through her ‘gram shows that she’s been shooting a new Netflix movie called Senior Year, hosting the BAFTAs, traveling a lot, and showing off her bod “on Instagram shamelessly,” she told People.

The 42-year-old actress has been more than open about her weight loss journey—so, how exactly did she do it? Here's everything to know:

Rebel has denied following the Mayr method.

Rebel recently cleared up rumors she'd been following the Mayr method, a diet based on the “Mayr Cure” created by Dr. Franz Xaver Mayr, an Austrian physician, nearly 100 years ago. Mayr believed that most people are poisoning their digestive systems with the foods they eat and how they eat them. So the goal was to improve health through digestion.

But in an Instagram Story, Rebel clarified that “This was NEVER my diet." "Also have NEVER endorsed any diet pills or magic weight loss pills," she added. "Do NOT want anyone to get scammed."

She focuses on eating more protein these days.

Instead, she explained that she follows a high-protein diet. In an interview with People, Rebel shared that she used to eat 3,000 calories every day.

“Before I was probably eating 3,000 calories most days, and because they were normally carbs, I would still be hungry,” she said. “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.”
