What Are Clean Ingredients?

A frequent term you may hear from the GOLO staff is “clean ingredients.” What exactly does this mean? A clean ingredient label is one that has the least amount of ingredients possible. It also means simple ingredients (ones that you can recognize and pronounce).


Butternut Squash Pudding

This easy butternut squash pudding tastes better than pumpkin pie but uses fresh squash! A healthy winter dessert. 10 ingredients, vegan, gluten-free.

Here are the ingredients needed for a healthy winter dessert recipe!

1 large butternut squash
Olive oil for drizzling
½ cup coconut cream
1 Tbsp. coconut oil
2 Tbsp. maple syrup
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. cinnamon
¼ tsp. nutmeg
¼ tsp. ginger
1/8 tsp. salt
2 to 6 tablespoons almond milk

Yoga Misconceptions

Yoga, in Sanskrit, mean “to unite or to join”. Bringing together your body, mind and spirit is the whole purpose of the yoga practice. There are a variety of different styles of yoga a person can practice. One of the most well-known yoga teachers, T. K. V. Desikachar, said “It is not that the person needs to accommodate him or herself to yoga, but rather the yoga practice must be tailored to fit each person.”

The Healthiest Bread Choices

We get a lot of questions about bread here at GOLO. Many people assume that since they are trying to lose weight, that they cannot have it and that is simply not the case. When looking for a good, healthy bread, you really want to focus on the ingredients. It does not take a lot of ingredients to make bread, but most store-bought breads have laundry lists of unnecessary ingredients and added sugar.

Green Mac & Cheese

If you’re like me, someone who isn’t the biggest fan of veggies but knows how important they are, then you are going to love this recipe! This recipe gives you the comforting taste of mac and cheese while also providing added nutrition with the hidden veggies! Besides the green color, you would never know they are there.

Veggie Alternatives to French Fries

Who doesn’t like fries? While there is nothing wrong with homemade french fries (made from potatoes), it is VERY easy to go overboard with the portions. That’s why we are going to give you some recipes so that you can make healthier alternatives- veggie fries!

Real Food Shamrock Shake

Most of us have heard about the infamous “Shamrock Shake” that appears frequents a certain fast-food restaurant every March. What most people don’t know is that it is made with a shockingly high amount of unhealthy ingredients- 54 to be exact. So, it is safe to say that this is probably not something that you want to put into your body.

GOLO Friendly Restaurant and Quick Service/Fast Food Options

Yes, you can eat out on GOLO!! This time of year, eating out is not only more common but sometimes unavoidable. Want some tips on where to go and what to eat when you get there? Keep reading…

Many times, restaurants will serve healthier options, so always keep that in mind, but in order to assist our customers, we have scoured the menus of popular restaurants to come up with some decent dining out options. Keep in mind that not all of these meals are going to be perfect and whenever you eat in a restaurant, you are going to consume excess sodium but we have listed the best options at each of the restaurants listed.

Stairs to Success

There’s no shortcut to success—sometimes you just have to take the stairs. That’s what happened to Karen, an operating room caregiver, after receiving an emergency call two floors above her. When the entire team took off, she was forced to stand by the elevator. As her health declined over the years, she could no longer run up the stairs.

Natural Acid Reflux Remedies

Having acid reflux is a pain in the neck… or should I say pain in the chest? It is defined as a digestive disease in which stomach acid or bile irritates the food pipe lining. Ouch!

The lining of our stomach is specially adapted to protect it from the powerful acid, but the esophagus does not have this advantage. The gastroesophageal sphincter, a ring of muscle, normally acts as a valve that lets food into the stomach but not back up into the esophagus. When this valve fails, and stomach contents are regurgitated into the esophagus, the symptoms of acid reflux are felt, such as heartburn.

Do It Your Way and Lose Weight

These days, immediate solutions are a must. Need to deposit a check? Use an online banking portal. Looking for love? Swipe on a dating app. Hungry? Drive to a fast food spot. But oftentimes, these quick fixes aren’t smart or healthy.

The reality is, there is no magic pill we can take to lose weight immediately –– we have to listen to our bodies and put in hard work.

Fruit Ice Cubes

Here at GOLO, we all love infused waters. They keep us hydrated and they are also delicious! But what if you didn’t have to worry about using all the fruit up before it goes bad? The answer is to freeze the fruit in ice cube trays! You can even use muffin tins if you want to put the fruit ice in a pitcher or bigger container. This makes sure your fruit does not go bad, and it keeps your water cold while slowly infusing it. All you have to do is cut up your fruit (and herbs if you would like) and put them in an ice tray or muffin tin, add water, and freeze. It can’t get any easier than that! Let us know in the comments below, are you going to try it? And what combinations will you do?

Dying Easter Eggs With Natural Dye

Easter is already here! That means dying Easter eggs! This year, we challenge you to use natural food-based dyes instead of the artificial ones bought in stores. Here’s why – Artificial dyes are often made of petroleum, can contain carcinogens, and can cause a range of issues, such as:

• Allergies

• Hyperactivity

• Learning impairment

• Irritability

• Aggressive behavior

• Chromosomal damage

• Insomnia

• Eczema

  • GOLO Diet is a natural approach to weight loss that has reached over a million people worldwide. After 10+ years of research, GOLO has studied and developed the GOLO Metabolic Plan (patent pending) and GOLO Release - A patented formulation that uses only natural ingredients (no known side effects) and has received the approval of Health Canada.
