The New Rules Of Fat Loss In 2024

by | Jun 27, 2024

Forget EVERYTHING you thought you knew about weight loss. Yep, you heard me. 

You know all those old tricks and tips? Toss them out the window because they’re not going to cut it in 2024. You’re probably thinking, “Duh, Bonnie, that’s why I’m here. What I used to do doesn’t work anymore.”  And you would probably be correct. I get messages in my inbox every single day about this exact subject. Which is exactly why I’m here to help.

In this blog, I’m covering the new rules of weight loss in 2024. 

New Rule #1: Abandon the Old Strategies

The techniques that once led to successful weight loss may no longer be as effective, especially as our bodies change over time. Extreme methods that might have worked in the past may no longer be suitable for women navigating perimenopause and menopause. Consequently, traditional weight loss programs may need to be re-evaluated for their effectiveness and sustainability.

New Rule #2: Focus on Nourishment, Not Deprivation

For women in their 40s and 50s, fixating solely on calorie deficits and extreme diets could lead to metabolic issues. Instead, it’s crucial to prioritize stress management and a balanced diet for sustainable weight loss. We need to shift our perspective toward overall health and well-being rather than being solely fixated on the number on the scale.

New Rule #3: Shift the Focus Away from the Scale

Placing too much emphasis on the scale can become a mental obstacle. Rather than becoming consumed by a specific number, it’s more beneficial to concentrate on overall body composition and health. Long-term weight loss goes beyond the numbers on the scale, and it’s essential to redirect our focus toward sustainable well-being.

New Rule #4: The Role of Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)

Hormone replacement therapy undoubtedly offers various benefits such as improved sleep, energy levels, and bone health. However, it’s crucial to recognize that HRT alone isn’t a solution for fat loss. Combining HRT with healthy lifestyle choices, including proper nutrition and a positive mindset, is fundamental for holistic well-being.

New Rule #5: Understanding Supplements

While certain supplements can bolster overall health and well-being, it’s imperative to approach the unregulated supplement industry with caution. Opting for high-quality, pharmaceutical-grade supplements and maintaining consistency in usage is essential for reaping potential benefits

New Rule #6: Navigating the Digital Age for Credible Advice

In today’s age of social media, it’s critical to discern credible sources from self-proclaimed experts. Building a supportive community and seeking guidance from trusted individuals can provide invaluable support on the journey to fat loss. This is precisely why I’ve developed my Self Made Program and The Society.

New Rule #7: The Role of Medications and Beyond

While medications such as GLP-1s may offer benefits for certain health conditions, they should not be relied upon as a standalone solution for sustainable weight loss. Understanding the role of medications in conjunction with holistic lifestyle choices is integral to long-term success.

Bottom line…it has to be sustainable.

The evolving landscape of fat loss in 2024 underscores the importance of embracing holistic approaches to health and well-being. Whatever route you choose that works for YOU must be SUSTAINABLE. 

Moving away from extreme dieting and emphasizing sustainable lifestyle choices such as stress management, prioritizing sleep, and embracing a balanced diet can pave the way for long-term success. Engaging with supportive communities like The Society and Self Made, and seeking guidance from trusted sources, can further enrich the fat loss journey in 2024.
