Trying to lose weight can be tough. Sometimes diet and exercise just doesn't cut it so we look to supplements and other similar products to help us achieve our goals. There are so many products out there that it can be tough to choose the right one. The company GOLO allegedly offers a solution for those struggling to reduce excess body fat by claiming to reduce the body's sensitivity to insulin. But does it actually work and how effective is it really? Let's find out, shall we?
What is GOLO?
Golo.com is a website that offers a weight loss program called GOLO For Life. These weight loss supplements allegedly reduce insulin resistance which can cause weight gain. GOLO was founded in 2010 in Newark, Delaware.
How Does GOLO Work?
GOLO works to help with weight loss by helping against insulin resistance. Higher insulin levels can slow down metabolism, which leads to weight gain. The GOLO Rescue Plan is designed to reduce insulin sensitivity to help convert excess body fat into energy.
At the time of this review, the entire GOLO rescue plan is available for purchase on the company's website for $39.95. It includes a 30-day Rescue Plan, GOLO Release tablets, Metabolic Fuel Matrix, plus a Roadmap. You can also purchase a 60-day supply for $79.95 and a 90-day supply for $99.90.
The GOLO Release tablets feature a proprietary blend of all natural plant-based ingredients to allegedly control hunger, reduce food cravings, and stop fat storage. Ingredients include various plant and fruit extracts such as Banaba Leaf, Rhodiola Leaf and Apple. It also includes numerous vitamins and minerals as well.
The Metabolic Fuel Matrix provides a food plan without the need for counting calories. The Roadmap assists in the mental aspect of weight loss by giving you tools to assess any unhealthy eating habits and helping to correct them.

What We Like
Excellent BBB Rating: Better Business Bureau ratings can tell a person how well a company handles any customer service issues. At the time of this review, GOLO has an A- rating with the Better Business Bureau but no accreditation.
No Stimulants or Allergens: The products do not have caffeine, gluten, soy, or dairy ingredients that can cause unpleasant side effects for some people. There have been no reports from customers about experiencing any unpleasant side effects.
Focus on the Mental Aspect: The weight loss program doesn't just give you a meal plan to follow and some supplements to take. It also provides additional tools to think about in your weight gain cause, such as stress and emotional eating. The tools help you cope and overcome these issues with certain mental exercises.
Free Shipping: You can order the weight loss program without shipping costs. The company states on its website that products ship out by the next business day and express delivery takes 2-4 days. Free shipping includes Puerto Rico, Alaska, Hawaii, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Money Back Guarantee: The company offers a 60-day unconditional money back guarantee that starts as you soon as you receive your order. You can request a refund without returning anything.
Not Ideal For Everyone: While there are no reported side effects, these weight loss products should not be taken by pregnant women or diabetics. If you have a serious medical condition, you should consult a doctor first to make sure these products don't interfere with any medications you are taking.
Limited Clinical Evidence with its Claims: The company does post some clinical trials on its website to prove the effectiveness of its products. However, there are no available clinical trials from third-party sources. Take the information provided from the company with a grain of salt and do your own research.
Beware the Weight Loss Claims: While the company offers numerous customer weight loss testimonials, don't take their word for it. The weight loss supplements do not have approval from the FDA and are not intended to diagnose,treat, or cure any condition.
So Does GOLO Actually Work?
GOLO appears to be a legitimate weight loss program. The program features monthly supplements, meal plan, and a roadmap with mental exercises to help you achieve your goals. The products seem affordably priced compared to other similar offerings in the marketplace. The company also offers free shipping and a money back guarantee.
There is no real evidence from consumer feedback or clinical trials that these supplements actually work. So if you want something that is actually FDA approved, then you should check this out instead. If you have a serious medical condition, you should speak with your doctor first before trying this program out. I’d love to hear your thoughts and experiences with GOLO so please leave a comment down below. I’d love to hear from you!

Golo claims to help you lose weight but none of their claims are actually backed by the FDA.That said some people have claimed it does help them.
I’m always skeptical about weight loss programs out there, so I find review like yours very helpful to weed out the ones that may not pay off.
I like the fact that there is a money back guarantee if it doesn’t work for you, and knowing it is made of mostly natural ingredients sounds appealing. However, the fact that the FDA has not approved it and there really isn’t a lot of consumer feedback claiming it works makes it difficult for me to try it. I will take a look at your other suggestions of Leptigen and Tummy Tea though.
Thanks for the great review!
You’re welcome Jen.
I appreciate reviews like this because I’ve tried a lot of weight loss products and it seems like a lot of them are just scams. Some are very expensive.
This review was fair and I might try GOLO. Because it seems like it may be of some help to people. As the review suggests, it’s not a blatant rip-off. It seems like they’ve included a Roadmap so you do other things to help with weight loss.
At this point, I think everyone knows that just taking one product will not be a miracle cure for losing weight.
It’s also reasonably priced, so that makes it more attractive to buy.
Thanks for your insight. Unfortunately I think people still believe there is a magical cure for weight loss and it’s why there will always be products to meet this need. Some will be better than others.
Myself (and other friends of mine) have always been interested in finding a solid weight loss program. Most appear to be scams or just trying to get money from me. But after reading your review, I feel like that GOLO has solid potential to be a great weight loss program.
You’re welcome Jackson.
Thanks for the informative review of GOLO for life weight loss program.
There are so many programs on the market that it is difficult to choose so it helps to have a review from a unbiased point of view.
What are your thoughts on why Alli is better as a weight loss program? I would love to read a review on this too.
Thank you for your information
You’re very welcome. I’m going to write a review on Alli soon. But one thing that stands out to me about them is they’re the Only FDA approved OTC weight loss aid. So that says a lot.
I thank you for the extensive review of the GOLO for life weight loss system.
I am always interested in what is new in the world of diets and I understand from your article that diet has a lot of positive points. Do you think the diet is more suitable for men or women?
I don’t think there is a difference based on your sex.
Hi Eddy, thanks for this great review. I’m very interested in weight loss programs and I’m pleased to see reviews like yours because selling insulin resistance supplements should be controlled by FDA as it can be confusing.
But I guess the meal plan program is fine.
Thanks for this great review.
You’re welcome Pierre. I’m glad you enjoyed it.
GOLO did not work for me
I tried GOLO for 30 days along with the 7 day reset and following the meal plan provided. I did not lose weight at all. I found that the release formula caused me to feel bloated and constipated even when I increased my water intake. I didn’t feel different or better and I certainly did not lose even one pound. Total waste of money- I had far better results simply skipping lunch and replacing it with a shake- lost ten pounds doing that. NOTHING with GOlO

Did you find this review helpful? Yes (28)No
I always check these diet programs before buying into them because too many sound like backwards rip off saying you can eat things like pizza and lose weight.
It’s good that you do the research.
FDA reason it is not approved
FDA does not approve stuff that is a Natural Product.. The FDA works with the pharmaceutical company to make big profits.. people realize this please it works but it is a natural working product that is why not FDA backed.. Many of you’re vitamins and minerals are not backed by FDA or approved it is up to the manufacturer to make sure they are in compliance again no big Pharma money.. Go do you’re research before you go blasting things.. Education is what you all need Ignorance is Bliss!!!!
Checked it out
I researched the researcher behind the efficacy of GoLo product (Dr. R J Buynak), and I find it very interesting that it is a researcher/doctor who frequently does “independent studies” for a living. It is also interesting that when I tried to call up info on his office, it was labeled as “this location is permanently closed”. So what does that imply? H-m-m-m-m!!!!
