Rebel is continually trying to shed off pounds from her body. She lost 33 pounds of body weight in 2012 as per DailyMail.
In 2020, she had lost 40 pounds of weight. Rebel told People magazine that she was perhaps consuming 3,000 calories daily before the weight loss and they were mostly carbohydrates. Hence, she used to feel hungry most of the time.
In order to lose 40 lbs, she reduced her calorie-intake and made a switch from carbs to a protein-rich diet. Her protein sources included animal protein such as fish, salmon, and chicken breast. She also had protein-shakes. Rebel had eaten just under 1,500 calories each day to lose weight. After she had hit her 165 lbs of goal weight by November 2020, she increased her calorie-intake to 2000-2500 calories to maintain the lost weight as she was also working out like a beast. In terms of workout, majorly, she relied on walking to lose weight. She was able to finally lose over 60 pounds of weight.
