About the GOLO For Life Plan

What is the GOLO For Life Plan?

The GOLO For Life Plan combines the right foods together to help manage and optimize glucose and insulin levels while creating a thermogenic effect. The GOLO For Life 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 For Life 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 GOLO more effective than other diets or programs?

GOLO is a 2-tier synergistic approach. Release helps balance insulin, apelin, and cortisol, which are key hormones associated with metabolic health. This, in turn, supports metabolic efficiency. Our GOLO for Life Plan is a simple, easy to follow balanced meal plan that eliminates starvation dieting for good. Anyone can follow the GOLO for Life Plan successfully. There are no complicated meals to prepare, and you can eat real foods like pasta, bread, and even butter with sensible portion control without gaining weight because your metabolism and hormones are balanced. Instead of teaching your body to need less calories, with GOLO you are fueling your metabolism which is essential so your body can turn food and fat stores into energy. That’s why so many people report that they are not only losing weight but feeling better, having more energy and vitality, and even sleeping better.


How is the GOLO For Life Plan Personalized?

The GOLO For Life 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.


Can I Eat Out?

Yes, you can easily follow the GOLO For Life 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.
