"Thanks for all the love so far on my 'Year of Health' journey - when I was reaching for the candies last night after dinner I thought to myself 'hmmmm...better not' and had a bottle of water instead," she shared in the caption. Wilson also revealed that she's 17.64 lbs. away from hitting her goal weight, writing, "8kg’s to go until I hit my goal - hopefully I can do it by the end of the year x." Rebel Wilson.

To achieve this feat, Wilson's personal trainer, Jono Castano, recently told Yahoo! Lifestyle that the star has been using a wholistic approach, focusing on both nutrition and exercise. "You can't out-train a poor diet and you can't let the weekend derail your fitness goals. It's a key mistake that a lot of people make. They get to the weekend and everything goes down the drain and then basically Monday to Friday, all the hard work that they did is gone," Castano explained. "I'm all about balance, so with me, if you're going to have one drink, whatever it is, a chocolate, that's totally fine as long as it fits into your calorie count."

Created by Dr. Franz Xaver Mayr, nearly 100 years ago, the diet is centered around whole foods with high alkaline content — like vegetables, fresh fish and sheep’s milk yogurt — that are to be eaten slowly. While Wilson has been losing weight in her "Year of Health," a source previously told PEOPLE that her fitness journey is not just about her appearance. "Her healthy journey is more about how it makes her feel than the physical benefits," the source said. "She has more energy and more confidence, which you can see from her sexier Instagram shots. She's also having fun with new fashion and beauty looks."
