In the last 10 years, dieters have spent over 600 billion dollars on diets and diet products. Yet we keep getting heavier.
If you want to lose weight and keep it off, increase your metabolic efficiency and prevent or reverse health conditions you need to know the truth about why dieting has failed and how to take back control of your body and health.
The Truth About Weight Loss
Why is it so hard to lose weight? The truth is, Insulin Resistance is the root problem but the diet industry doesn’t want to talk about it. Why? because their programs and foods make it worse.
Even if you lose some weight, you quickly gain it back and more. Each time this happens, Insulin Resistance gets worse. Losing the same 10, 20 or 50 pounds over and over again, crash dieting or restricting calories or food groups slows your metabolism, disrupts the hormones that control weight and increases your risk of serious health conditions.
If you have a slow metabolism you probably gain weight easily and have trouble losing weight despite dieting, you may have Insulin Resistance. It’s not your fault, and you are not alone. Willpower and effort will always fail if the strategy is wrong.
“If what the diet and processed food companies tell us is true – then we would not have the epidemic of weight and health problems that we face today. Our mission at GOLO is to expose the diet industry – and show you how to lose weight, get healthier and never have to diet again.”

What is Insulin Resistance?
Insulin is a hormone that directly affects metabolism, weight gain, aging and overall health.
Your insulin’s effectiveness is affected by unbalanced diets which increase glucose levels and spike insulin levels causing excess glucose to be stored as fat. Unhealthy insulin levels lead to Insulin Resistance, pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetes, and other serious health conditions including heart disease and Alzheimer’s.
Insulin Resistance can also trigger stress and anxiety, cause fatigue, hunger and cravings, poor sleep quality and other symptoms — all which drive emotional decisions like overeating, bingeing and cravings for fatty or high sugar foods.
