About The GOLO Metabolic Plan:


What is the GOLO Metabolic Plan?

The GOLO Metabolic Plan combines the right foods together to help manage and optimize glucose and insulin levels while creating a thermogenic effect. The GOLO Metabolic Plan improves weight loss in two ways:

  • Minimizing or eliminating muscle loss and maximizing fat loss
  • Providing proper nutrition that includes healthy fats and carbohydrates which eliminates nutritional imbalances and promotes steady weight loss and better health.

On the GOLO Metabolic Plan, you can eat more food and lose weight without the obstacles you may have faced with other diets. You will be eating between 1300 and 1800 calories each day, and will:

  • Stay full and energized
  • Keep insulin steady throughout the day
  • Give your body proper nutrition
  • Reduce hunger and cravings
  • Learn how to eat to promote weight loss
  • Learn how to maintain your weight when you reach your goals

Why is The GOLO Metabolic Plan Better Than Other Diets?

The GOLO Metabolic Plan is designed to give you achievable and sustainable weight loss, and help you transition to a healthy lifestyle so that you don’t ever have to diet again. Unlike most diets, GOLO gives your body the proper nutrition it needs for overall metabolic health.

What Kind of Results Can I Expect?

By following the GOLO Metabolic Plan you can expect to lose an average of 1-2 pounds of fat per week. The time it takes to see results depends on your overall health and how closely you follow the program. Weight loss doesn’t happen overnight, and over time whether you lose more in the beginning or at the end, it all averages out. In addition to weight loss, other positive changes may occur. You may begin to see a noticeable difference in how your clothes fit, you may sleep better, and have more energy throughout the day.

How is the GOLO Recue Plan Personalized?

The GOLO Metabolic Plan is based on your energy needs. We help you determine the right amount of food that you need, to lose on average, 1-2 pounds per week. When you give your body the right amount of food in the right combinations you will stop fat storage and start releasing stored fat.

What Kind of Foods Will I be Eating?

The GOLO Metabolic Plan focuses on whole foods like real butter, eggs, meats, fruits, vegetables, and grains including rice, pasta and bread. With the GOLO Metabolic Plan, you pick the foods you eat. GOLO is flexible and can be adjusted to accommodate anyone’s dietary needs (vegan diets, vegetarian diets, dietary restrictions, etc.)

Can I Eat Out?

Yes, you can easily follow the GOLO Metabolic Plan when dining out. We give you the guidelines to follow so you will enjoy yourself without sabotaging your efforts. We also include a Restaurant Guide with your membership so you can eat out whenever you want and still lose weight.
