Rebel Wilson has denied using a diet known as the Mayr Method to lose weight, following recent reports that it helped her figure transformation.
The actor, 42, is said to have lost almost 80 pounds in recent years, after embarking on a “year of health” in 2020 who saw her lose more than 5 stones.
The Pitch Perfect star has now dispelled the claim that it was the Mayr Method – developed by Dr Franz Xaver Mayr in the 1920s – that helped her lose so much weight.
The diet is said to focus on eliminating certain foods to improve digestive health and promote eating practices such as chewing food thoroughly, according to Health line.
It was reported earlier by Daily Mail Australia that Rebel’s recent transformation was partly the result of following through on the plan, which would include reducing sugar consumption.
The article – which isn’t the first to credit the method for his weight loss – did, however, catch the actor’s eye, prompting him to dispel such speculation on Instagram.
Alongside a screenshot of part of the article, she wrote, “This was NEVER my diet. Please stop writing this stuff.”

Rebel then took the opportunity to dispel other potential allegations about her and warn fans against being scammed by products allegedly used by her.
She wrote in a follow-up post, “Also, I have NEVER endorsed any diet pills or magic weight loss pills or cryptocurrency. If you see stuff like this online, please report it as a scam.”
The actor encouraged fans to directly report these scams on social media platforms if they see any, telling them not to send him evidence in direct messages.
Explaining to her fans how she will promote the products, she commented, “If I endorse something, you will only see it as official posts on my official, verified social media.”
She later thanked her followers and expressed her love to her fans, with the actor further stating in a later post that she didn’t want to see anyone get scammed.
The posts come amid Rebel and her co-stars promoting the upcoming comedy film Senior Year, which is set to hit the Netflix streaming platform next month.
