My Weight Loss History
Hello my name is Fran. I am a middle aged woman in my early 40′s. I’ve been overweight most of my entire adult life. In 2010 I topped the scales at 235 pounds, I was morbidly obese! At that moment I knew it was time to take control of my weight because it was taking a toll on my overall health. I found it difficult to do everyday activities. I often couldn’t complete a task without becoming short of breath. My cholesterol and blood sugar levels were extremely high putting me more at a risk for heart disease and diabetes. I sought the advice from my doctor. He advised me that I had to be put on a strict diet to lose weight or have gastric bypass surgery done if not my health would just continue to deteriorate.
Weight Loss Methods Comparison
I tried most of all the diet plans out there, Atkins, which lasted only a week. I’m of Italian decent and no way could I give up my bread and pasta! I tried the prepackage meals, which just left me hungry, and forget about Weight Watchers I’m a mom of 5 kids and a grandson I didn’t have time to go to Weight watchers meetings, and weight watchers online wasn’t any better. I tried the Alli diet pills, but they just left me running for the bathroom! I was beginning to think there was no hope left but gastric bypass surgery.
One day while I was surfing the web for alternatives to gastric bypass surgery I came across this site that claimed to have gastric bypass results without the surgery. It had to be false! How can something you drink take the place of actual gastric bypass surgery?
I was desperate to get this weight off and had to do something before my next doctors appointment in a month because if I didn’t I was going to have to start the procedure for gastric bypass surgery. I searched the net for Roca Labs reviews among other information. I had already lost enough money on diet schemes and wasn’t about to lose anymore.
My Journey with Roca Labs Gastric Bypass Alternative
I logged onto Roca Labs website and was impressed by all the success stories they had posted there. I researched more and found many people in the same situation that I was in. This was different from the rest of the diet plans I had been on. I knew I had to do something about my weight, but going under the knife for surgery was out of the question! I had to get myself on the track to a healthy lifestyle. I went on Roca Labs live chat and spoke to a representative. I had a lot of questions. Like how does it work, how does it compare to gastric bypass surgery or a plan such as weight watchers, and most important what are the side effects? They were very informative and answered all my questions. They informed me that one of the ingredients in the formula was beta glucan, which helps blood sugar levels and that the anti-cravings supplement would help me control my cravings. This was fascinating to me. If this was really true, this is something even gastric bypass surgery or weight watchers couldn’t do. I decided to order and start my journey to a healthy lifestyle. The cost was $480 which seems like a lot for a diet, but if this really worked like it said it did I would be saving a lot more money on food and improve my health.
Bottom Line: Roca Labs is Real – I started losing weight from the first day of the procedure just like my doctor told me. However, it is not as easy (but easier than gastric bypass surgery)
I am too shy to record myself for a video review but I kind of identify with these 3 Roca Labs Reviews here showing their success stories with before and after.
It really can’t be too hard if so many people are getting results from the very beginning! I found countless great reviews from people who share their weight loss journey in the form of vblogs. Here are some of my favorites, watch them and fuel your inspiration. Trust me, success is contagious!
Here is Tanya’s success story… if this doesn’t inspire you, I don’t know what will!
How does the thought of going for an invasive surgery to lose weight at the age of 76 sound? Scotty lost weight safely and without surgery… amazing?
I just love Annette, she proves how powerful Roca Labs is even if you are not overly obese and merely want to maintain you “ideal” weight. That’s the toughest of all weight loss goals!
Two days after ordering from Roca Labs, my package arrived. The package was prepared so nicely I felt like I was opening a Christmas gift. I was excited to get started. After reading all the instructions I prepared my first dose. I was committed to following this to a “T”. I was not about to let food control me anymore; I wanted to control the food! To my surprise it didn’t taste so bad.I mixed it with some Crystal light raspberry tea and it was good! Immediately afterwards I had this full feeling in my stomach as if it was smaller. Around lunch time I prepared myself a turkey sandwich and salad. I could not even finish the sandwich! I was shocked! This was amazing. I felt I finally had my food portions under control. I could not believe that I was satisfied eating only half a sandwich I literally had no room in my stomach for anymore than that. This feeling continued each time I took the formula. After one week I weighed myself and I couldn’t believe what the scale said. I had lost 6 pounds! Ok some of it may have been water weight, but still it was a loss. I decided to not weigh myself again to after a full month already passed because I wanted to make sure that the initial weight loss was true and not only water. A month to the day I weighed in again and my total lost for the month was 19.5 pounds! I was on my way to a healthy lifestyle.
I went to the doctors that same month and he was almost as excited as I was with my weight loss. He said if I continued to lose weight and my blood sugar levels continued to come down that I would decrease my chance of developing diabetes and I would not have to do the gastric bypass surgery. He asked what I was doing to lose weight. If i was on a weight loss plan or just watching what I ate or counting calories. I told him I was using Roca Labs weight loss formula and to my shock he had heard of it. He asked me to give him the information on Roca Labs because of my success he wanted to recommend to other patients that were struggling with their weight. He wanted to follow up with me again in a month to make sure I was still on the right path of losing weight and a healthy lifestyle. I understood because with many of the diet plans I was on I would stick to them for about a month and fall back into my old routine and begin gaining the weight back.
The following month I returned to my doctor and had lost an additional 14 pounds. Not as much as the first month, but I was still losing. My doctor did more blood work and checked my blood sugar levels. A few days later he called me with the results. My cholesterol had dropped 8 points and my blood sugar levels were now completely normal and not in the danger zone! I couldn’t have been happier. I was not only feeling better, but I was looking better as well. My husband was impressed with my weight loss and started telling friends and family how proud he was of me for getting myself on track with a healthy lifestyle. My mother was also impressed when she seen my blood sugar levels because she was a diabetic herself and had always worried about me having to deal with the complications of diabetes.
Does Roca Labs Really Work?
I saw some people posting that Roca Labs promises a 100lbs+ weight loss and they could not lose more than 68lbs or so they think it is too good to be true. Others, like me in the beginning, did not use it correctly. Bottom line: probably the strongest weight loss without surgery out there on the market but you have to really want to lose your weight in order to succeed.
From personal experience using the Roca Labs plan I can say it works!. This is my personal journey and review. It has been 8 months now and I’m happy to say that I now weigh 187lbs. I am continuing to lose and am hoping by the end of summer I will be at 145lbs. I welcome any comments or words of advice to help me along my journey.
