Rebel Wilson has denied reports that she used a diet known as the Mayr Method to help her lose weight and warned her fans not to “get ripped off” by weight loss ads.
the Perfect star shared a screenshot of a Daily mail post on his Instagram story on Monday, which claimed that Wilson had used the Mayr Method diet plan to lose weight.
The Mayr Method, which was developed by Austrian physician Dr. Franz Xaver Mayr, is based on the idea that “improving gut health is essential for promoting weight loss,” according to Healthline. The weight loss plan focuses on eliminating certain foods from your diet to improve digestive health, such as sugar, caffeine, gluten, and dairy. It also encourages certain dietary practices such as “chewing food thoroughly”.
“This was NEVER my diet, please stop writing this stuff,” Wilson wrote in a screenshot of the post. “Also, I have NEVER endorsed any diet pills or magic weight loss pills or cryptocurrency.”
Wilson asked her fans to report weight loss ads claiming to be endorsed by her as a scam unless she shared the endorsement with her official, verified social media accounts.
“It’s really annoying when people use my image illegally or in a misleading way,” Wilson said. “I do NOT want anyone to get scammed.”
the Bridesmaids The actor documented his health and fitness journey on social media after declaring 2020 a “year of health.” Since then, Wilson has lost over 75 pounds. In July 2021, Wilson revealed that her decision to start a new fitness regimen was partly due to her improving chances of getting pregnant, having previously been diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).
In an interview with People, the 42-year-old actor and comedian detailed her high-protein diet and shared that she ate 3,000 calories a day. “Before, I probably ate 3,000 calories most of the time, and because it was normally carbs, I was still hungry,” Wilson said.
“So I really switched to a high protein diet, which is hard because I didn’t eat a lot of meat before,” she added. “I eat fish, salmon and chicken breast.”
Wilson has also spoken candidly about being treated differently by people since losing weight, with the actor describing encounters such as holding doors open for him or carrying his groceries.
“I like to think I looked good in all sizes and all things and I’ve always been pretty confident. So it wasn’t like I wasn’t confident and now I’m super confident,” she said during an appearance on Morning shift with Hughesy, Ed and Erin. “I think what really interested me was how other people treat you.
“Sometimes, being bigger, people wouldn’t necessarily look at you twice. And now that I’m fit, people are offering to carry my groceries to the car and open the doors for you. I was like, ‘Is this what other people go through all the time?’ »
