Now One week later on third attempt…

Not sure how Danille is doing so far.  I have lost a pound more and haven’t taken the stuff for two days now.  I hope to be back on schedule tomorrow that is Saturday and an “official” Weigh in of one week.  I drank so much water the first five days that I sort of felt like I was drowning and that is why I skipped it for 2 days.  I hope writing this out here will help me commit to it.  How are you doing Danielle?

About Kathy

Hello Everyone! I am 47 years old and I live in West Hartford, Connecticut. I was married for 7 years back in '95. Unfortunately, my husband, Will, died of cancer in '02. I do not have children. Like most of you, I have been battling weight issues since childhood. I am definitely a fan of WW and Jenny Craig. My thoughts as I begin this site is whether this "diet" by Roca Labs can help get over the speed bumps that sometimes feel more like those big square curbs or even several large boulders....

    I have been looking at this product, hate what I am seeing about their “customer service” and suspicious legalspeak behavior, but in honesty I don’t see anything in the formula that looks harmful if used as directed. No I am not a medical professional, but I have done some research and I am still tempted to try it. Maybe we should buy this as a group, that way if it is a scam, we could share the cost and it wouldn’t leave anyone with a bunch of unused product. Or would the splitting up of the order be a problem in any way? Any thoughts?

    • Kathy says:

      Hi there,
      Since the price is so high for one… sharing seems like a good idea. I also heard from others that people it didn’t work for, sell their left overs on ebay. I don’t think I should bring people together here, since I am already in trouble for even having this site up. (It is not 100% positive) Please return here and let me know how it works for you if you do decide to use it.
      Thanks for responding!

      I can certainly tell you this is not a scam this is a bona fide pure product and it is a natural product, as it contains natural fibers combined in a way to mimic the gastric bypass effect temporarily for 10 -16 hours you feel satisfied and the anti craving mix that eliminates cravings, this will double your chances for success, I have been on the formula a grand total of two days and I can already see health benefits such as more energy, not feeling the need to snack all of the time, and a feeling of satisfaction after a small amount of food.

      • Kully says:

        Hi Can you tell me are you still using this product and does it still work?

        • Kathy says:

          Hi Kully,

          I am still trying the product. I have used it on and off in 2011 and am ready to try again in 2012. I have not had success as of yet. There are TONS of people who have had great losses to I will keep trying. I want to lose weight soooooooooo bad before my 30th high school reunion.

      Hi everyone! I love this blog but need more aenwsrs. Has anyone completed the $500 worth of product? Were you able to do it without Jenny Craig or Weight Watchers? Were there any other side effects besides headaches from not drinking enough water? I always hear about the 1st month or 2 results. If so many people are using this product what are the end results after completing the $500 worth of product they send to you? Has anyone completed it & have you renewed it since? I need long term aenwsrs, not short. $500 is a lot of money to be throwing away in this economy. Also, thank you to the person who mentioned about buying it for less on EBAY to try it out before spending a fortune. I will wait to see if anyone has aenwsrs for me before trying it out.Yvette

    It is going on the second week of my third try with roca labs and I am struggling again. Hard to think about the texture of the mixture and still be able to eat it. As usual, I am not giving up this soon this time…. just need a break from the yucky taste.

    • Dr. Abramovitz says:

      There are endless ways to prepare it in a tasty way. Why do you “eat” it when you can drink it in 20sec?

      • Kathy says:

        You are the first doctor to respond to my postings on this product….. Welcome!
        What town, state do you practice in?
        The directions say you get your best results if you wait for it to “gel” into a solid. I guess some have results without waiting.

    My husband and I are both in our 50′s. We started Roca Labs on August 26. We discovered that this is an individual process and started it on our own schedules (mornings and afternoons) but now we mostly take it about 30-45 minutes before a meal, or when we feel we might overeat (before going to a restaurant or party). Our stomachs are smaller now and taking Roca’s formula insures that you will feel full much faster.

    We have also started walking about 3-4 times a week for 30 to 45 minutes.

    Tip: Slow down your eating; chew and savor each bite. Try to put down your fork a few times during the meal. Also, eat delicious food! Try to eat something you really enjoy and if possible, eat foods in their season.

    If you are craving a cheeseburger, have 1/2 of one. Have to have some cookies, or dessert? Sit down with 1/2 of your usual portion and savor every bite.

    Also, the formula seems to help with blood sugar. You know when you are “dieting” (dirty word) you feel tired, weak, and even cranky. The formula seems to provide a little boost, Maybe I am just feeling better because I am finally doing something about my weight.

    We just returned from vacation in Florida where we enjoyed the foods we love….just less of them. Yes, we took Roca along

    RESULTS: I weighed in this morning. I have lost 13 pounds. My husband has lost 12. This is not a quick fix. It is a way to control your food intake, while still enjoying the foods you love.

    We feel better than we have in a long time and plan to stay on Roca until we have reached our ideal weight.

    By the way, for all those people complaining about the cost, ask yourself: How much are you spending on junk foor or eating out? For us, it was quite a bit! Also, this is a healthy alternative to lapband or gastric bypass at $12k plus some….I think you get alot of formula for $480!

    • Kathy says:

      What great news! Thank you for sharing your experiences for both you and your husband. I liked what you said about using it when you think you are in danger of over eating. I have also used it like that and have had results to eat less then I expected. What mixture do you use with the powder? What tastes best for you? for your husband? Very interested……
      Thank you again for responding, I aprreciate it!!

      • Angie says:

        Kathy:

        I didn’t know if this site was for anyone to post or if I just happened upon something that was meant for just a few…sorry about that. I realize my post sounds like I am writing for anyone who might want to know of someone’s progress….don’t mean to sound preachy.

        I use really cold water, usually just 250ml, with Crystal Lite and one scoop of formula. I drink it quickly before it gets thick and then chase it with a big glass or two of water….that usually does what I need. How about you? What works best for you?

        • Kathy says:

          Hi there, Angie,
          This site is for EVERYONE. I am looking to have a balanced site for the Roca Labs “diet” or formula. I am so glad you mentioned better ways to eat/drink it. I thought for it to work properly you had to wait till it was a solid. I usually use Juicy juice, shake, and wait 5 minutes till I eat it with a spoon. Most times I can’t get it all down, but I keep trying. You said 250ml, rather then the suggested 300 ml. Is it easier with less fluid?
          Next I am going to try more of the flavor packets they sent along. Although this is my third try, I still haven’t had the success most people speak/write about on line. How much have you lost and it what time period?

          Kathy

          • Angie says:

            Kathy: I am glad your website it available again (wasn’t able to get on there for a while. In answer to some of your questions, I found that 250 ml was easier to drink quickly than the 350 ml…I have never waited for it to set up before eating, I use Crystal Lite, shake it up and drink it as fast as I can. I follow up with at least two glasses of water and that works best. I have passed my Roca Lab formula on to my daughter, who is trying to get pregnant, but needs to lose weight. I have lost a total of 17 pounds since August 26, and I just bought new pants in a smaller size! Now I just use Roca when I feel weak…at night or before a party or gathering where I might over eat. I am walking about 3-4 times a week for 30 minutes and I don’t eat after 7:30 p.m. I will keep reading about your progress…hang in there.

          • Marylou Townsend says:

            Hello Kathy
            Hang in there on your formula and you will have success in time, take note of others and the things they have learned to do, I have not tried the formula by eating it and I have already got some good ideas from all of you on this message board. keep up the good work, keep us posted.

  4. Kathy says:

    What terrific news, Angie!! I am so happy for you that you are sticking to walking and not eating after 7 30. Those two things would make a huge difference in my life if I stuck to it. Right now, I have failed at my thrid attempt with this diet.
    How is your daughter doing with it? Once she gets pregnant will she continue to use the formula? I would be interested in what her doctor’s advice will be….

    The reason you could not reach my page earlier then this is because once again the company shut down my page for reasons I still am not totally sure of. First it seems they are saying I didn’t follow copyright infridgement laws and next, their letters speak of defamation of product and company. I am working with a lawyer closely to work at keeping this site up this time. I think it is right for possible comsumers of the formaula to read both successes like yours and not so successful like mine.

    I would like to hear from you again, Angie, as you continue your journey. What is your final weight loss goal?

    Hello Kathy,

    I am happy to see your site is back up. It is important for all to see the good and the bad with anything. Lets face it not everyone is going to have positive feedback on any given item. I have been using the formula for 4 months now and have lost a total of 45 lbs to date. The main thing to remember here is this Formula is a “tool” to use in weight loss and is no way a “magic pill” to cure obesity. I have tried many diets with no success and this one so far is working well for me. It takes a bit of tweaking to find the right dosage and right taste for you. I will admit at first the formula gagged me and I could not eat it, but after talking and contacting the Rocalabs service department I found different ways I could take it. I prefer to mix a small dose with cranberry juice and drink it right away followed by drinking a bottle of water. Taking a smaller dose in the am and then taking another smaller dose later in the day works for me. Just a suggestion, this works for me and may not work for everyone. I love just reading everyone’s suggestions and experiences. I like to think we are all in this boat together and can help one another. Thank you all :)

  6. Kathy says:

    So glad you came back to write. I hope to hear from you in a couple of months, since 45 pounds in 4 months is a HUGE accomplishment. When I try the product again, I am going to do what you and others have suggested….
    I am going to drink it right a way before it has a chance to turn to a solid. I really thought there was no hope of it working if you didn’t follow instructions to the letter.

    I hope I can eventually have good news here about my accomplishment. Until then, I am welcoming comments from EVERYONE. I want to be FAIR here. Once again, I have had to move things around in order to keep this site up. I have hired an attorney to help me with the complaints that the company has about this site. I still haven’t been able to figure out exactly what is wrong here. Sometimes I have thought they said “copyright infringement” and other times it is something else. I will keep you all up to date on what is going on during the discussion on whether what I have written here is legal or not….

    Hey Kathy,

    When I was doing research on Roca Labs, I would see your website advertised everywhere. I haven’t been able to get back on it until today. I just wanted to say that I have started using the Formula and for me it is working great. It was a smooth process for me, from ordering to finally receiving the formula.
    I take mine with the Kool Aid packets and I drink it through a straw. The first time I took it, it was kind of odd because it gave me a full feeling so quickly, I kinda didn’t realize it. So far it has been one week and I have lost 10 lbs. :)
    Have you started to take the formula again?

    • Debron says:

      Following your lead, I have also decided to blog about the formula. I feel that its helping me stay on track. It’s also helpful to hear what other people think too. You can find it at : trueroca.wordpress.com

  8. Marylou Townsend says:

    Hi, Kathy,

    I am glad to hear about your weight loss, I just received my Formula and I am thirsty all of the time, that is alright, I feel fine, and I do not feel hungry. This is day 1, I am hoping to add walking as an exercise and walk every day, this should promote even more weight loss. I want to shed as much as I can by Christmas. Hearing all the positive testimonials about the formula, is the way that I became interested, every one is loosing weight on this plan.

  9. Marylou Townsend says:

    I am thankful for this plan, I love food and this is my downfall. I knew when I would succeed at a diet plan I would have to have a special program that would leave me feeling full or satisfied and with out having drastic measures. The formula is filling and after a dose of it you do not feel the urge to over eat, nor do you have all of those cravings that also cause a lot of weight gain at least for me. I think this is the only logical diet plan that I have seen in a long time. Why do we over eat, if we fix the root of the problem then we can fix the problem. The RokaLabs Gastric Bypass Formula addresses the main issue we over eat because we are not full or satisfied, their formula fills you, and you feel satisfied.
    This is my kind of health plan.

  10. Dea1385 says:

    Hello Kathy, I’m happy to see a blog where actual people who used this stuff can share their experience. I ordered this formula a couple of months ago and even though I had my issues eating it at first it has worked wonders, it’s the first weight loss product I’m using that doesn’t make me hungry, I’m already down 35 pounds, I haven’t reached my goal yet, but hey I still have over 2 month product left so keep your fingers crossed, I’ll update you on my progress! If anyone has any questions I’ll be glad to respond :)

  11. Marylou Townsend says:

    Helllo All of you RocaLab fans, i am on 7th day, and it is awesome I am still not hungry, nor do i have cravings, at night, I am finding that I do not need a lot of food to feel satisfied, maybe a bite here and there, the formula is enough for me.

  12. Marylou Townsend says:

    Hello All, I have finished my second week on the RocaLabs Gastric Bypass Without Surgery formula and I lost 4 pounds week 2, on week 1 I lost 8 pounds so my 2 week total for week 1 and week 2 is 12 pounds, I have lost 12 pounds on the formula in 2 weeks, and I feel great, I weigh in again on December 10 2011 and I will post my results for week 3, I am A RocaLabs fan for life you really do lose weight fast.

    • Kathy says:

    Another one notice the wording this is from someone who works for the company believe me I can pick up on this stuff. “keep up the good work keep us posted” and she refers to it as “the formula”. The whole blog is totally from someone who works there. Hang in there on your formula and you will have success in time! Take note of others and the things they have learned to do. Come on who really talks that way that has not been told what to say by the company!

  17. jami says:

    I am very interested in weight loss and am contimplating buying this product….but this site seems a bit fishy and I have not read anyone who sounds REAL LIFE like….there is always bad with good, be it, bad t asting product but good results, etc….not one person has spoken about bathroom related issues with packing your intestines with all that fiber….please someone who is truly using this product comment on the real deal and get me off the fence on purchasing this product….

  18. Kristine says:

    Hi all,
    I am glad i came across this site. I just found this product online the other day and am highly interested in giving it a shot. Ive been looking into gastric bypass but as it is so pricey i thought i would give this a shot first. The biggest worry i have from this is that there are little to no results. Im really just looking for something to get me started with losing a signficant amount of weight in hopes of once being more comfortable in my own skin slowly but surely making my way to all around physical fitness through running and marathon training. Is there anyone who is currently using this product who can speak about there daily experiences with the product, your energy levels once using it, long and short term results and any side effects that may occur. Thanks

    Hi everyone,
    I am glad I stumbled upon this site. I am 43 and want to see ‘me’ in the mirror. I am grateful for the many blessing in my life, but have not been happy with my weight since I can remember. I am very excited about starting today, I will keep you posted on my progress.
