Where is my product?
February 27, 2022

I placed an order over a week ago, they charged my credit card and I never received a confirmation. Please let me know if you are sending me the product because you got my money...

Golo stinks!
February 18, 2022

DOES NOT WORK!! Don’t waste your money $$$ this product is poor and a big scam if you follow a low carb high protein diet you can have success.

Don't buy it
February 10, 2022

Didn't work like it was supposed to. I called and they said because I ordered and returned the pills before I wasn't eligible for a refund. Seems the golo release is the exact same pill from before. All they did was change the name of the drug. Big scam.

February 3, 2022
Golo messed up my stomach and it's not been right since I took this product...8 months later.

GoLo is working for me!
June 20, 2021
I've been taking Golo since January this year (2021 it's now June 2021, 6 months) and I have lost 50 pounds total so far. I haven't changed my diet, I don't exercise (I am more active though) and I don't follow their meal plan. First 5 months I only took 2 pills, 1 in the morning

MaryhelenMelnick August 24, 2021

I have been on the Golo diet plan for several months. I take the release. I have lost tons of inches and about 120 pounds.

AndreaMartin September 21, 2021

Really? Wowww that is awesome Veronica. I am slowing down a little with mine then. I am going to do just one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Did you do the 1 pill in the am and one in the afternoon or night? Congrats to you also Maryhelen. Man if I could lose 100 I would be so happy. Good for your both. Did it cause you headaches the first week? I have Hashimoto's hypothyroidism and I don't think my meds are turning to t3 making it hard to burn fat and lose weight. I also think I have the insulin resistance. Sure hope it works.

JamesH March 28, 2022

Please folks don’t do this to yourselves. I took it for 16 months trying to walk it to the letter. It didn’t do a dang thing. I ate 1200 calories a day and rode bike 5 miles a day. I’m 5-10 , 230. After 16 months I’m 5-10 223. I’m 61 and my doctor just laughed when I told him.

TheresaY Dillard May 12, 2022

I beg to differ cause without golo you would have lost weight eating 1,200 calories a day and riding your bike for 5 miles a day. no shade intended but this cant be true.

Quira1962 May 22, 2022

@TheresaYDillard...... I agree with you. JamesH's comment does not make sense. Why would anyone continue for 16 months with a product that clearly is not working? I understand giving the product some time to see results, but 16 months is a bit much to believe. And like you said for a man to cut calories to 1200 and bike riding for 5 miles and still not lose is ridiculous. The only plausible explanation is that he gained muscle. But in that case he would have seen some positive changes which he does not seem to have seen. His claims are suspect....Sorry. Not buying it.

It's a diet
April 16, 2021

It's nothing more than another diet. I just got the kit shipped to me. They give you several booklets to read to educate you on eating a good balanced diet from the 4 main food groups 3 times a day. The booklets are full of encouragement pumping you up to do this. They give you a balanced diet plan with tiny portions to eat at meal.

Anyone would lose weight following this. For example you get 3 ounces of protein at a meal. That's like 2 bites of meat or 1 egg. Don't do this if you're not ready to diet with small portions.. And be ready to give up certain foods forever. They say that you won't be hungry doing this. I wonder if the pills will cause any weight loss with them alone or following this plan with double the serving sizes. I plan to find out.

Danielle February 09, 2023

6 oz protein/meal, 1 serving carbohydrate, 2 servings of vegetables, 1 serving of healthy fat. Each meal. 3 meals per day.

Nothing remarkable about this product
June 24, 2020

I initially ordered 1 bottle of this product last February but only took 1 capsule per day.

At first I felt it was helping curb my appetite and I shed a couple of pounds but then realized that since I was in the process of moving and was in high motion preparing for my move, my additional activity was the reason for this outcome.

However, in May and after my move and given the virus working remotely I decided to try the product again. This time I purchased 2 bottles and much to my disappointment I did not feel that the claims of this product were accurate. I was taking at least 2 and sometimes 3 capsules per day with no results.

In reviewing the ingredients, there is really nothing remarkable about this product and I feel that their claims and advertisements are overly exaggerated and hyped-up.

I then requested a return authorization from customer service for the unopened bottle but was refused, claiming that the 60-day guarantee starts with your first order.

In essence I had already passed the time frame for requesting a refund based on my order in February. Most companies would be willing to work with the customer under these circumstances. Unfortunately, GoLo is not one of those companies.

I cannot recommend this product.

KathyLynn August 21, 2020

You are supposed to faithfully take 3-4 tabs a day

ShannonMartin August 17, 2021

I have faithfully taken 2 tabs with every meal, I follow their meal plan to a T, and I exercise every day. I have given up all fast foods and all processed foods. I drink tons of water and I feel like I am gaining weight with this stuff.

It works!!!!
January 30, 2020

I have lost 1 lb a week which is fine because it teaches you to balance healthier ways of eating. You just have to quit eating processed foods, stop fried foods, stop shoveling sugar. It’s quite simple, change your unhealthy habits for better choices.

It works.

Better to lose slowly and develop good habits instead of wishing for some scam miracle diet like low carbs. Your body needs complex good carbs (fruit)

RhondaSmith Shepherd March 28, 2020

so if you are doing all of this you don't need a supplement to help in the weight loss.

SusanSchletz April 16, 2022

Agreed !

October 22, 2019

I promised myself I would never ever fall for another magic pill. But I did.

I read all the positive reviews at Golo.com, that surely they are paying for. I took for 2 weeks. Gained 3 pounds and had the worse acid reflux. I have a stomach made of iron and never to I suffer with acid.

When I finally decided enough is enough is the night I started throwing up and could not stop. Then I saw it....the capsule my body was trying to eliminate. No wonder the product was not working and I had acid reflux, my body struggled to digestion the capsule.

When I called the company the report, the lady was like "you are probably allergic to one of the ingredients or you are detoxing.

I said do you think someone should check it out as to why my body could not digest the capsule? She said "you will be fine" and we depose of all open bottles sent back.

Well does that mean the bottles returned that are not opened are mailed back out? Not sure and I guess if they don't care I don't either. I just hope I get back my money without a hassle.

BTW...if has been 4 days not taking the "magic pill" and no more acid reflux....hum....

Save yourself the disappointment of believing in another scam and 10.50 to send back the product.

Donna January 30, 2020

Maybe you are allergic. I'm taking Release and my digestion is so much better. No acid reflux

ShannonMcAdams May 21, 2020

I'm up 2 lbs after only a week on it, cutting sugar, skipping one meal a day AND I have constant diarrhea. Not that I had the greatest bowels before but this is insane! I'm not even through half a bottle. I wont be opening the 2nd bottle. The ingredients looked like junk (snake skin oil) and I guess I was right. This does nothing to modify insulin levels. Try to get jardiance or some other type 2 diabetes med and you will probably have a better experience. I can cut calories down to 1,000 a day and still gain unfortunately.? I was really hopeful this would help. Instead it made it worse. Best of luck to all those still looking!

Ana July 13, 2020

Shannon, thanks for sharing your experience. I'm going to ask my Dr, see what she recommends. Hopefully you find something that works for you.

DianeCutting January 15, 2021

Sounds like the making of a good class-action lawsuit against the company for false advertisement. I'm glad I'm reading these reviews because it changed my mind about ordering the product.

JeffreySteencken March 04, 2021

Same here!

JudyWilliams July 08, 2021

This actually works, I am over 65 years old...and believe me I have tried many diet fades...But GOLO, Honestly works

Just follow the guide lines ..and you will be amazed as I was...

Strange reaction
April 4, 2019

It didn't do anything more for me than I've done on my own in the past through a low carb diet with increased exercise.

What it did do for me is give me a strange reaction. After taking it for about a week, I started getting pins and needle type pains under my skin, first in my legs, then on my shoulders, forearms, thighs and so on.

I stopped the product and it went away in a day or so. Stared it again and the symptoms came back again. Stopped and they went away.

So not sure if it is from an allergy to one of the ingredients, of something else, but I did stop taking it for good.

I am trying the 60 day full refund policy and will let you know how that works and if I successfully get my money back.

CaMarsh June 09, 2019

That could have been niacin. I get that reaction when taking some supplements.

Made my flat tummy a fat tummy!
March 29, 2019

I usually do not leave reviews, but this product really ticked me off!

I've been doing exercises to flatten my tummy and they were awesome! It's basically an isometric exercise I saw on YouTube. I had a flat tummy in a very short time and was feeling great about the results!

So my sister shows up one day and says she bought this program but she hadn't tried it yet and since it came with 3 bottles, she shared it with me.

So I've been dropping pounds fairly quickly by basically what I call the "POVERTY DIET". I can't afford any junk food and ration what food I have after my husband died recently.

So I thought great I can curb my hunger and lose weight faster. Well I've only been taking the RELEASE for less than 2 weeks and I noticed that my tummy looked a bit bigger 5 days ago, so I thought oh no, and took it all 3 times instead of the 2 times daily that I'd been taking it.

In the last 3 gays my stomach has grown 3 sizes bigger! Are you freaking kidding me? I've already suffered enough, now I have to detox to make sure and remove what ever it is that caused this to happen!So on top of all the other crap I've been through I have to start all over again.

If I could, I'd drive to your company take each individual gelcap out of the bottle and throw them in your faces !

I wish I could, but I'll settle for making a truthful comment on here and let everyone know DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!

BarbaraAnzellotti March 31, 2019

You poor thing! I feel so bad for you. You really have gone through enough. I am so sorry about the loss of your husband. That alone is so sad and I sympathize for your pain. Thank you for posting your review though because it will help a lot of people and they won't have to deal with the garbage that you did. I am trying to find a good diet plan for my husband and myself and it's not easy. I don't want gimmicks, pills, drinks, etc. All I want is something balanced and healthy. Something that will help us lose weight and keep it off. The great American dream, right?

Anyway, I just wanted you to know that there are people that feel bad for your pain and hope that things get easier for you as time goes on. God bless you dear.

DonnaEdwards Bartley December 28, 2019

I have used an app called MyFitnessPal. I lost from 225 to 176 in about 6 months. The app is free but there is a pro version available. You do have to be dedicated because you have to enter everything you eat or drink as well as any exercise you do. But I can tell you, it works. It also made me self aware by allowing me to see exactly how many calories, carbs, sugars etc I was eating. I originally started the app in 2012 and had maintained the weight loss but recently I have gained about 15 pounds back and am about to restart using it again. I am 58 year old female just for the record. Best of luck to all who struggle with weight issues since I truly and am right there with you.

GayeStone January 19, 2020

Yours has been the most helpful comment. Thank you.

TTwoHarleygirl March 10, 2020

Thank you for your honesty. I am researching this for a friend who asked me for my opinion, and your posting has helped me give him a summary of my decisions. Thank you again. I wish you the best.

Moka Blu May 02, 2020

I'm SOOO CONFUSED. IF your stomach was already flat, why did you feel the need to consume GOLO? Why mess with something that was already working for you?

Moka Blu May 02, 2020

LuLu Comer, I'm SOOO CONFUSED. IF your stomach was already flat, why did you feel the need to consume GOLO? Why mess with something that was already working for you?

doesnt work
February 3, 2019
I absolutely wasted my money. After a month my stomach seems bigger.

Moka Blu May 02, 2020

I'm SOOO CONFUSED. IF your stomach was already flat, why did you feel the need to consume GOLO? Why mess with something that was already working for you?

September 15, 2017

My first order was the Original formula and it worked great.

I liked the diet plan and love making a pot of super fuel food for the week. Worked very well. But then the company changed the supplement formula. It was supposed to be New and improved?

I continued the diet plan with the new supplement formula and it has changed. The old formula had something that made me not crave eating all day. I was satisfied all day. Felt very normal.

Now with the new formula I am back to craving sugar, bread and everything else. I don't know what happened but the product changed. It makes me sad because I thought I had found a great product.

Good luck to everyone else.

VickiKirk Smith September 16, 2018


Do you think this was kinda like a Bait and Switch?

They gave you something in the beginning that worked and made you want to buy more and then it didn't work, but you thought maybe a bad batch or whatever and you'd try it again only to find it didn't work. Maybe that is how they lure US all in. Thanks for your review/opinion

Don't Waste Your Money
September 9, 2017

Look, all you need to do is a low-carb diet.

GoLo is telling you to do that, but they're also trying to sell you some completely bogus vitamins, which you don't need (just go to CVS and buy any multivitamin, if your concern is vitamins).

The GoLo.com people are losing weight because they're in ketosis due to eating low carb, not because of the dietary supplement GoLo.com wants you to buy.

Go low carb for free and don't waste your money on GoLo.com!

RobertM Lothrop December 15, 2019

what a bunch of crooks

LauraHansen-Bequette May 24, 2022

I was just told by my doctor that I am insulin resistant. I immediately started to panic because diabetes runs very heavily in my family. My grandma on my mother's side had it, both of my parents had it. I had a brother die of it when he was 31 and I have a younger brother who has it. I say the commercial on TV for this JOKE and asked my doctor about it. She researched it and told me "it couldn't hurt for me to try it".

First of all, it took me over 2 weeks to get it which cut into the trial period. Then when I got it, I took it for 2 weeks and had gained 8 lbs. I called to tell them I wanted to return it because I NEVER wanted to gain more weight. I was told by a cocky, know it all manager: "you need to stop eating all that fast food". I was so enraged for her to say that.

Then she asked what I ate for breakfast. I told her 2 hard boiled eggs and a 1/2 cup of fruit. She said that was WAY too much and asked what I eat for lunch. I told her 1 or 2 chicken tender loins and 1 cup of vegetables. She said that was "no-where near enough". but had no solution to offer accept to go online and look at the website. I was furious and tried it for another 2 weeks as my weight continued upward. I finally was able to get info to return it and of course I had to pay to send it back.

I sent it, they received it and not I wait up to 30 days to get my money back because they have so many returns that the return center can't keep up with them. I was eating no carb an no sugar before I started this JOKE of a "program". I would NEVER recommend that anyone EVER try this. I have gone back to no carbs and no sugar and have lost most of the weight that I put on when I started taking GOLO.

I kick myself for how much I would have lost if I wouldn't have fallen for the false advertising GOLO does. I wish I would have found these reviews before I wasted a LOT of money on this scam. The steal your money then blame you when it doesn't work

Not worth it
April 11, 2017

This may work if you are borderline diabetic but if you are not it does nothing, (if you are lucky). If you are not lucky you may end up as I did and gain weight using it.

Also their customer service is horrible it took 3 phone calls and 4 emails to get someone to speak to me about a return authorization. Their message might say they return the phone calls within 4 hours, but that surely wasn't my experience!

I would not recommend this product!

VickiKirk Smith September 16, 2018

Thanks Judy. I know there aren't any easy answers. I tried the lap band.....biggest mistake of my life, so many health problems since. I just thought this might be a helpful tool for me to lose some weight and get off my insulin.

Thanks for you opinion and review.

Very helpful for me....Helped me decide

BettyPepau August 12, 2019

I want to order this product, but want to ensure that they DO answer the customer service line. I called, selected 2 for customer service. In less than one minute, Julie answered and I explained why I was calling. She laughed and said “Yes we do answer.” Just before we said our goodbyes, she said “This call will give me something to smile about all day!”

Curious about product
April 10, 2017

I find it odd that Eden C.- Customer Support Manager is the only one to comment on the product.

Maybe this is a home office type of business or they only have just 1 person to reply to comments of their product line.

It does seem like a good product to try, but with the reviews here I will save my $$$ and or try something else.

Like it has been said, "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is."

December 13, 2016

DO NOT BUY this product!!!

I purchased Golo 90 day rescue a few months ago, after a few weeks I had no positive results so I contacted Golo support and they said it takes longer to work is some cases. I continued use for 2 months with a weight gain and no loss of size.

When I tried to return I was told I only had 40 days to return product even though web site says 60 days. My attempt to return product was negated because I was 8 days to late and when I said to them I was told to keep trying product after I first wanted to return Golo I was told it didn't matter, only 40 days from receipt was acceptable.

So I say it did not work for me at all and their return policy is designed to delay and void consumer satisfaction complaints. I suggest that the claims are a lie, and do now believe in Golo policies to protect your purchase refund.

It's a scam!!!!!

Eden C December 19, 2016


I am sorry that you did not get the results you had hoped to with GOLO. You don't mention in your review if you were following the meal plan or not. GOLO does work best when followed as directed.

Our money-back guarantee was 40 days however we just revised it to 60 days last week. You probably called during this change so I apologize for the confusion. I would be happy to offer you a refund at this time if you can please call the office at 800-730-4656. Ask for me and I will assist you with your request.

Okay, so my wife was already eating a diet comparable to the one GOLO proposes with little results, and what we had to know was whether the pills made any difference or not, so she didn't modify her diet. So far, no noticeable results.

VickiKirk Smith September 16, 2018

Thanks, I pretty much thought this to be a scam.

NinaPiraino Bruno February 03, 2019

the delay game...been there done that with other products!! no more

LindaCasale February 03, 2019

I totally agree

It Works
October 23, 2016
I went from 205# to 189# in four weeks on the GOLO Program using the Release Supplement. I used the Kick Start menu for four weeks and am heading for my goal weight. The program works if you eat the proper foods and portion size. The Super Fuel (you prepare it) is and easy way to get everything you need for a meal. One or two cups can make up a meal. Try it (follow the directions) and you will like the results.

Pam McCoin November 01, 2016

The Super Fuel is the best. I made a big batch Sunday afternoon. I also got some meal prep containers & was able to prep my whole weeks breakfast & lunches. It really takes the guess work out.

Eden C December 19, 2016

We are so happy to hear that GOLO is working for you. Please keep us informed of your results!

Unforftumetly the results were typical
September 15, 2016

I will admit they had a great sales pitch in regards to insulin resistance but unfortunately the results were typical of most products that claim to aid in weight loss.

Like most products this came with a VERY aggressive diet and exercise program to follow which if followed by itself without using Golo would no doubt produce the desired weight loss which of course is the hook because all you know is that you are getting results and are not sure if it is the diet and exercise or the Golo product so you keep using he product.

The only way to truly test the product itself is to use Golo for 30 days by itself without the diet and excersise program by following your regular routine and if at the end of 30 days if you lost even a couple of pounds then the product would merit further study.

I did, and the results were typical, no weight loss at all. I weighed exactly the same, no more, no less at the end of the time period. Nice try:)

B Parker November 02, 2016

Looks like your regular routine needs a bit of revision if you intend to lose weight. My success was based on following and not significantly changing my normal diet and exercise routine. The only major change was not having my normal glass of wine with dinner. Once I reach my goal weight, I plan to introduce wine with dinner again.

Eden C December 19, 2016

GOLO does come with a meal plan however it is not what most would consider "aggressive". Our plan is based on eating 3 meals per day containing real, whole foods and eliminating processed and packaged items from your diet. Many of our customers are pleasantly surprised by the amount of food that they eat each day.

GOLO does NOT come with an exercise plan. We do have an optional exercise device (The Perfect 5) that can be purchased at a later date if you choose to do so. We do promote some type of exercise weekly (anything you choose) however, we have had customers see results without adding physical activity in until later in the program.

Our website contains a 25 week study that shows results of people following the meal plan alone (control group) and those taking the Release supplement AND following the plan. Those that took the supplement lost on average 32.5 pounds more than the control group (program only) over a 25 week period.

the company is not easy to get in touch with which is always a turn off but I received my product and have had results with no effort or using the diet plan...I found this review below it helped me make a decision to try it... hope this helps good luck.

I apologize if you had trouble reaching us. GOLO is available 7 days a week via telephone 800-730-4656. We also have a chat feature on our site and you can always email us at [email protected]
