Go Keto Review
How Well Does This Latest Product Work?
No matter what your goals are with your ketogenic diet efforts, and no matter how much you’re motivated, you will hit some roadblocks along the way.
My personal goal 5 years ago was weight loss after managing to eat my way into morbid obesity.
You’d think the threat of death might be enough motivation, but I still struggled with the early side effects of the keto diet, more than I thought.
What I didn’t know back then is that with some relatively simple supplements you can make that process easier.
And when you don’t feel so crap, you’re more likely to stick with it.
Go Keto is one such product, and we put it to the test to see if it’s all just hype.
What Is Go Keto?
Essentially, it’s a ketogenic diet supporting supplement that gives you a boost of ketones.
In theory, Go Keto will help limit the symptoms of the keto flu during induction and later on it can help burn fat quicker without intermittent fasting.
Even if you’ve got a lot of experience through cyclical dieting, you’ll still have a few days of feeling a bit crappy.
Happens to me every time, even with a very carefully put together meal plan.
So, the makers of Go Keto claim that it won’t just support ketosis, but also boost mental clarity, physical energy levels and help you achieve your weight goals faster.
Sounds promising, but it’s no different to any other supplement on the market
After some testing, we did poke some holes in those claims
But, more on that shortly.
What Are The Ingredients?
The first thing I want to point out is that this keto diet supplement breaks with the norm and actually publishes the proportions of the ingredients.
Most others hide behind proprietary blends, and that’s just annoying when you’re taking other supplements as well.
The main ingredients are exogenous ketones called beta hydroxybutyrate (BHB) salts:
These are the substances that will actually boost your blood ketone levels making it easier for your body to process dietary and stored fat. At least that’s what natural ketosis does.
In addition to these there is:
None of these are actually going to help your keto efforts.
They are mainly there to make it possible to create a shake out of the powder and add some flavor.
Most importantly, there’s not a single carb in the mix, so you won’t have to count it towards your daily net. It also doesn’t contain fats like MCT, which you might want to take as a separate supplement.
Research suggests that due to magnesium-depleting medications, reliance on processed foods and other factors, a good portion of the population has or is at risk of developing a magnesium deficiency
How To Use Go Keto:
Basically, all you have to do is stir or shake one scoop into 8 ounces of water.
The trickier part is deciding when this fits in with your ketogenic diet meal plan.
If you need extra energy for exercise at the gym, then take it about 20 minutes before you get started.
Otherwise, if your aim is to reduce keto-flu symptoms and boost some fat burning, then take it first thing in the morning with your breakfast.
How Does Go Keto Taste?
Most keto diet supplements have a pretty disgusting taste. You know those fake and excessively sweetened products where you have to pinch your nose to get it down.
Go Keto comes in a lemon cucumber flavor which is a bit of an acquired taste.
My first impression wasn’t so great, but I did get used to it.
Does Go Keto Actually Work?
For this, I had some friends help out to test how well it works during induction and later on in ketosis.
Fred is a cousin of mine who was recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and rather than become dependent on medication, he wanted to control his blood sugar through dieting.
He was a first-timer to keto, and from the way he described his symptoms during induction while using Go Keto, it does sound like there was an improvement.
It still took about 7 days, but he had very little brain fog.
As for boosting benefits once you have achieved a state of ketosis, it’s very difficult to say whether it’s working any magic.
I think that my ketogenic diet plan at this stage is pretty spot on to maximise health and exercise benefits, so I really didn’t feel much of a gain.
So, while there was some positive effect, in the long run, this product is just not quite as good as Purefit.
With endogenous ketosis there are many other factors that stimulate lipolysis meaning that a kind of balance is reached and lipolysis stays constant.

Are There Side Effects To Using Go Keto?
The most common side effect with BHB salts is stomach upset like nausea and diarrhea.
Reducing the dose usually solves this, and you can always gradually increase it from a half to full dose.
Boosting ketone levels will also affect blood sugar.
So, if you’re not on a keto diet, you could end up with swings between ketone and glucose for energy that can result in some sporadic fatigue as your body adapts.
Where Can I Buy Go Keto?
While I don’t fully recommend this product over Purefit, if you still want to give it a try and get more energy than the fat-rich foods your keto diet can provide, then head over to Amazon.
It’s the safest place and will ensure you don’t end up with a fake.
I haven’t been able to find it in health foods and supplement stores, so it seems like it’s only offered online.
Bottomline: Should You Buy Go Keto?
My advice is to stick with Purefit to support your keto diet.
I use it all the time for induction (I go through keto cycles), and even in full ketosis, I get a great energy boost when my low-carb diet plan is struggling to keep up.
While I’ve never had blood sugar issues, I can say that Purefit works far better than Go Keto to help me lose weight.
If you get to a stage where your weight loss stalls, you know how frustrating that can be.
These days I don’t use supplements that often as my meal plans have sufficient fats in them, but on days where I do some high-intensity training, it’s a nice booster.
Definitely give it a try and use one of the available offers. You won’t be sorry.
