Perhaps the doctor missed Wilson’s diagnosis of PCOS, made an assumption of her health based on her body size and passed an unprofessional comment. Or perhaps the professional drew on their experience and advocated a healthier lifestyle. Either way, a judgement was given to Wilson based on her weight which she admits to feeling “offended” over because she felt she was healthy. We can’t be sure whether the actor discussed her ovarian diagnosis with the fertility specialist but Wilson says she took onboard the medical advice.
She met with various practitioners (a luxury she acknowledges not everyone has) and recommends others struggling with fertility “learn bits from different places and see what works for you.” Spurred on by her fertility appointment, Rebel Wilson chose to take actions to improve her health by “attacking [it] from all different areas” – fitness, diet, nutrition and mental health. Not everyone has access to personal trainers and nutritionists; something recognised by Wilson. However, she claims walking has been her most effective way to metabolise fat: “Listen to a podcast, listen to motivational books…” to pass the time, she suggests.
