You will find many programs that approach weight loss in different ways. For example, one diet may suggest you ‘cut out carbohydrates’ to lose weight and another promotes meal replacements. The problem with most diets is that they do not address the critical hormone that controls weight: insulin. And worse, many of them cause high insulin levels, and then the excess insulin stores as fat.
Insulin and the Metabolism:
Insulin drives metabolism and the way the body uses digested food for energy. The digestive tract breaks down carbohydrates into glucose. With the help of insulin, cells throughout the body absorb glucose and use it for energy. In healthy people, insulin is correctly balanced with the amount of glucose that enters the bloodstream from the small intestine and liver. With normal insulin levels, recently ingested fats are used for energy during a 2 hour period after a meal. If high insulin levels are present, fat is more likely to be stored in fat cells. If insulin levels are chronically high, the ability for your body to burn fat breaks down.
Other hormones are affected adversely when insulin is high. This causes the body to react with unhealthy patterns that inhibit the body's ability to recover its normal metabolism. Leptin, insulin, sex, and growth hormones affect appetite, metabolism and body fat distribution. If you are overweight, you may have levels of these hormones that encourage abnormal metabolism and would benefit from our GOLO insulin sensitivity diet.
Dieting without managing insulin will result in muscle loss, which slows down your metabolism and that ultimately leads to weight gain. Crash dieting, low calories diets, and diets that eliminate key food groups can cause sugar highs and lows, and restrict fat loss even when you are in a calorie-deficit state. The result is muscle loss and cravings and hunger that make it difficult to maintain a diet. The result is more weight gain.
The GOLO Release supplement and Metabolic Fuel Matrix help control glucose spikes so that insulin is kept in the insulin optimization zone to help you stop storing fat, maximize fat utilization, and maintain energy levels throughout the day.
GOLO has spent over seven years in research and development seeking a natural weight loss solution that focuses on insulin control. The result of our endeavors is the Release supplement and our patent pending meal plan The Metabolic Fuel Matrix.
The Release supplement contains a proprietary formulation of all natural ingredients. Our aim with Release has been to create a supplement that would assist with weight-loss, but not interact with medications or have any side effects. Over the course of several years, we tested Release with first adopters versus a placebo. Results of our studies confirm that those study participants taking Release as instructed, consistently reduced their weight in the short-term, and were also able to maintain their weight-loss over a period of years. Release is proudly made in the USA.
We combined the Release supplement with our patent-pending meal plan The Metabolic Fuel Matrix. The ultimate purpose of eating is for nourishment, which includes all forms of nutrients. But determining the right BALANCE is key for weight management and better health. For our meal plan, we discovered the right combination of proteins, carbohydrates, vegetables and fat to promote weight loss. With the meal plan you actually learn how to control insulin based on the food choices you make, so your body converts food to energy instead of storing as fat.
