The GOLO diet is based on the principle that low-glycemic foods consumption does not increase blood sugar levels, enhancing weight loss and metabolism. The emphasis is on the reduction of insulin resistance in the body. It encourages weight loss by consuming nutrient-dense foods such as green vegetables, fruits, and a regular exercise regime. The GOLO diet claims that the GOLO release supplement contains plant extracts and minerals that regulate blood sugar levels while reducing hunger pangs. Under the GOLO diet plan, one can eat 20-30% more than the conventional diet plan without worrying about the calorie intake by increasing your metabolism by focusing on healthier choices. 

Why do some say that the GOLO DIET may not result in WEIGHT LOSS? 

According to specialists, there is a relationship between increased insulin and weight gain. It is also established that processed foods, excess sugar and simple carbs can store more fat for a person with insulin resistance. It is observed that switching to healthy foods such as whole grains, green leafy vegetables and avoiding processed and fried foods, and at least 30 minutes of daily exercise will help in gradual weight loss. The GOLO diet encourages eating healthy whole foods and increasing exercise — which will aid in weight loss. 

Foods that burn belly fat

Foods such as avocado, banana, yoghurt, green tea, and wholegrain reduce bloating and burn fat. Avocados are also known to absorb carotenoids, cancer-fighting substances. Bananas contain potassium that reduces sodium build-up in the body, while yoghurt encourages healthy bacteria to reduce bloating. Green tea is rich in antioxidants, while whole wheat grains burn slowly and release more energy than processed foods.

Some foods you’re encouraged to eat for a healthy life:

  1. Vegetables: Spinach, kale, arugula, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, celery, cucumbers, zucchini
