    GOLO Guest Post: James

    The flow of positive change GOLO introduced into my Lifestyle By: James A. Rohloff As this is, my first attempt to express in words the impact GOLO has had on my life, please bear with me if I venture off into tangents or side thoughts, I will attempt to stick to the point. Flat out, 2010 was a very tough year for me. I had broken my right clavicle in the summer of 2009 playing sports and put on close to forty pounds.  I lost my employment of 12 years with a company I started my career with and where I very much enjoyed working.  I was in an unhealthy…

    What is the Reset 7?

    The ReSet 7 is an optional 7-day detox plan that eliminates dairy, grains, and red meat for one week (or however long you want to do it).  There is nothing inherently wrong with these foods, but the reason they are eliminated during this week is because they are the most common foods for people to have sensitivities to. They can also have a bigger effect on weight loss/gain.  The ReSet 7 can be used in the beginning, for detoxing (like after the holidays), or at any point in your journey; for example, if you are experiencing a plateau.  You can find it under “Downloads” on myGOLO.com. GOLO® is committed to providing you…

Or you’ve been working it for a month or two and are discouraged by weight fluctuation or weeks with weight gain. Lots of weight loss plans fail, and they’ve failed you before. Here’s why GOLO really works. It’s a lifestyle change. By struggling through that initial adjustment and then sticking with it, I have maintained my healthier weight for 8 years! You will see times when the scale moves up. Maybe that’s muscle mass. Maybe there are other, better things happening in your body. Your body chemistry will change as you eat…
