!!! THE FOLOWING INFORMATION HAS BEEN COPIED FROM THE ROCA SITE !!!


Note: The instructions incorporate over 6 years of feedback from 120,000 users, and are often updated to improve your success. RocaLabs would also like to hear about your experience.

Winning the Fight
-- Version 10 March 2011 --

You are holding in your hands the world’s most powerful weapon against overeating and obesity. It changes the equation in your struggle: you are now stronger than your cravings. Use this formula correctly, persist, and you WILL win the fight!

Preparing a RocaLabs dose
Prepare a dose as soon as you wake up (even if you do not eat breakfast), so the gastric bypass effect and regulation of blood-sugar levels (to prevent cravings) will commence right away.
*NEW* The newest European edition of the formula is flavorless and its taste adapts to your favorite non-carbonated beverage (you may add a sweetener). You may also use the sample flavor powder included with your order, which should last you for half the procedure.
Remember: add the formula powder at the end, before closing the lid and shaking.

Preparing With Your Favorite Juice
1. Fill the shaker (included) with juice up to the 350ml mark.
2. For a regular dose, drop one measuring spoon (included) or 2tsp (15ml/10gr) of the formula into the juice. If you are taking a light, strong, or double dose, drop 0.5, 1.5, or 2 measuring cups in (see Fine-Tuning Your RocaLabs Dosage).
3. Close the lid firmly and shake vigorously to activate and dissolve the formula.
4. Wait 3 minutes, then eat the WHOLE mixture while drinking water to make the gastric bypass effect even stronger. If you are in a rush, you may drink immediately after shaking, before the mixture thickens.

Preparing With Water + Flavored Powder
1. Fill the shaker (included) with water or up to the 350ml mark.
2. Add flavor powder in a quantity to your liking (about 2gr or a flat tea spoon).
3. For a regular dose, drop one measuring spoon (included) or 2tsp (15ml/10gr) of the formula into the juice. If you are taking a light, strong, or double dose, drop 0.5, 1.5, or 2 measuring cups in (see Fine-Tuning Your RocaLabs Dosage).
4. Close the lid firmly and shake vigorously to activate and dissolve the formula.
5. Wait 3 minutes, then eat the WHOLE mixture while drinking water to make the gastric bypass effect even stronger. If you are in a rush, you may drink immediately after shaking, before the mixture thickens. the formula is always added at the end before closing the lid and shaking

Crucial: As a user of the world’s strongest weight loss procedure you are required to drink plenty of liquids (preferably water) throughout the day, especially in the 30 minutes after eating the mixture. Water allows the formula to expand and fill your stomach, leaving only 20% available for food intake, and also prevents dehydration and headaches. (See Drinking Water is Key to Success).

Avoid: Carbonated beverages or dairy products can lead to bloated stomach or gas for some users when mixed with the formula or when consumed within an hour after taking the formula.

Caution is recommended.
No Meal Plans, No Hunger: Since you now have only 20% of your stomach space available, you can maintain a feeling of fullness throughout the day eating only 50% as much food as before. Don’t force yourself to eat over your NEW LOW satiety level, or you will not benefit from the procedure.

Tip: At mealtimes, serve yourself only a half-sized portion, and eat slowly. Afterwards, you will find that you are not hungry for more. 78% of users report eating no more than a “model-size” portion from day one.

Tip: The formula is flavorless and extremely customizable. However, if you can’t get the flavor or texture you like, remind yourself of the importance of achieving your weight loss goal, and treat the formula like you would any medicine that you needed to take. Drinking it quickly before it thickens will also help.

Caution: Formula must be shaken well, as lumps of powder may cause choking. If you are pregnant, lactating, or diabetic, exercise caution and consult your personal physician.


Fine-tuning your RocaLabs dosage
Your body and eating habits are unique, so you must create your own “prescription” of the formula to achieve the gastric bypass effect that is best for YOU as an individual. Determining the proper dosage size, and whether to take a “reinforcement” dose later in the day is crucial to your success. Remember that ideal usage of the formula will leave you with 20% stomach space available for 10-16 hours.

Dose Sizes
Choose the size that is right for your body. If you are not sure what size to use, start with the regular dose, and adjust as necessary.
1. Light: 0.5 to 1 full measuring cup (8ml/5gr - 15ml/10gr) of the powder. This is appropriate for children, teenagers, senior citizens, diabetics, and anyone else who is taking other medications, has had gastric bypass surgery, or requires special attention.
2. Regular: 1 full measuring cup (15ml/10gr) of the powder.
3. Large: 1.5 measuring cup (23ml/15gr) of the powder. Requires you to drink extra water immediately after, and throughout the day. Larger stomachs require this size, or even a double dose, to ensure success.
4. Double: 2 full measuring cups (total 30ml/20gr) of the powder. This strong dose requires you to drink double the amount of water immediately afterward, and throughout the day.

Note: This dose contains a high quantity of healthy fiber. If you are not used to this much fiber, raise the dosage gradually to avoid bloating, gas, and/or mild diarrhea. Any symptoms should pass after several days. If not, return to a regular dose. Not recommended for prolonged use.

“Reinforcement” Dose
In addition to your “wake-up” dose, it is recommended to take an additional dose in the afternoon or evening to keep the gastric bypass effect going strong. Doing this on a regular basis can increase your chance of success by 60%.
Hunger will often strike when returning from work, or later in the evening, and it’s all too easy to start munching outside of mealtimes. This happens for two reasons: low blood sugar levels, and simply wanting something in one’s mouth to chew on. Arming yourself with a reinforcement dose beforehand will maintain the gastric bypass effect and balance your blood sugar levels, so you no longer need high-calorie snacks. If you just want something to chew on, consider a low-calorie food, such as a fruit or vegetable. You might not have been fond of them in the past, but you are a new person now, with a smaller stomach and healthier eating habits - so give it a try!

This dose should be taken in the afternoon or evening, an hour before you generally feel hungry, and can be of any size (light, regular, large, double) depending on your need. Do not eat anything in the 1/2 hour before, and take it regularly, even on days you don’t think you’ll need it.


Dosage Reduction Over Time
As the procedure progresses, you eat less and your stomach shrinks, and so you require smaller and less frequent doses. Below is a general timetable for reducing your dosage and frequency, but you may determine your own.
1. Month 1: take 5–6 days a week
2. Month 2: take 5-6 days a week, but reduce your dosage size by 10-20%
3. Month 3: take 3–4 days a week, same dosage size as Month 2
4. Month 4: take 2–3 days a week, at 50% of Month 1’s dosage size
5. Month 5: at your discretion, if at all


Drinking water is key to success
It is important to drink plenty of fluids (preferably water) both immediately after taking a dose and throughout the day. The formula powder is unique in that it absorbs 32 times its weight (!) in liquid and can fill your stomach for up to 16 hours (!), as long as it’s constantly supplied with enough water. The mixture acts like a sponge, and without sufficient water it will shrink and pass through the digestive system too quickly. The more you drink, the longer the gastric bypass effect will last.


For a regular-sized dose, drink at least 3 glasses of water (8oz each) while you take the mixture, or right after. Throughout the day, drink at least 1.5 glasses an hour (10-12 glasses total). You should drink more if you take a larger dose. For example, if you have a large stomach and are taking a “double dose,” your water intake must be doubled as well.
In addition to water, you can have any low-calorie drink (10 calories or less per glass), such as flavored water, Crystal Light, tea, or diet beverages. Remember that for some users carbonated beverages may not interact well with the formula, and there is a chance of experiencing gas.

Be aware that since the procedure is new to your body, if you do not drink enough your brain may confuse your thirst with hunger and cause you to overeat. If you feel hungry, it may just be that haven’t drunk enough.

Tip: Each morning, set aside FIVE 0.5L bottles of water to drink so you will not have to keep count throughout the day.

Caution: Since the strong formula absorbs so much liquid, you must drink extra to avoid dehydration. A headache is usually the first sign of this, and over a longer period of time, a lack of sufficient water may lead to more severe problems.


Anti-Craving supplement
With our powerful formula, you have a smaller stomach size and are well on your way to winning the fight against hunger and excess weight. To make sure you’ll reach your goal, we’ve equipped you with another incredible aid: the Anti-Craving supplement, the best method to fight your cravings and suppress your hunger. Everyone who purchases the full 4-month package will receive this special supplement as a free gift.
The Anti-Craving supplement is easy to use. It is tasteless and can be mixed with any beverage, and it can be taken once or twice a day.

Instructions:
1. Take once a day around noon; or twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening.
2. Mix 1 tsp of the powder with a beverage of your choice. You may also use a soft food, such as yogurt.
3. Stir well and drink.
4. Make sure to finish the whole beverage, as some powder may have sunk to the bottom.

Based on the FDA-approved ingredient Beta-Glucan, this powerful and healthy supplement will give you the strength you need to suppress your hunger and eat 50% less food than before. According to the FDA, Beta-Glucan is also effective in lowering serum LDL-cholesterol levels, which may reduce the risk of heart disease.

Why do we have cravings? Studies have shown that blood sugar fluctuations are a major factor. Certain types of carbohydrates cause our blood sugar level to rise too high, too fast. Our bodies react by depressing the level below normal, and the result is numerous problems with our appetite. β-Glucan has the power to regulate and stabilize blood sugar levels, and effectively eliminate cravings.

In addition to balancing sugar levels, β-Glucan has also been proven to:
1. reduce cholesterol levels
2. strengthen the immune system
3. reduce the risk of heart disease
90% chance of success
The formula is scientifically proven to have a 90% success rate. It will always achieve a gastric bypass effect by PHYSICALLY occupying your stomach, leaving only 20% available space for 10–16 hours. Then, with a smaller stomach size you will eat 50% less, and can spare your body as much as 2,000 unnecessary calories a day without feeling any urge for food - that equals 15lbs per month!

Reaching your weight loss goal is only a matter of carefully following all instructions, and adjusting the dosage and frequency for your individual needs. The formula is customizable: when you decide how much to take and when, you control how much of your stomach is available for food intake at any time. The power to succeed is in YOUR hands!
1. Want it even STRONGER? Simply add more formula to your morning dose. You choose whether to take a light, regular, strong, or double dose.
2. Want it to last LONGER? Simply take a reinforcement dose in the afternoon or evening. Doing this regularly will increase your success rate by 60%.


Want to accelerate your weight loss?
Try some simple daily exercises, such as 10 minutes of push-ups, crunches, or light weightlifting in the morning, and 30-60 minutes of walking or aerobics in the evening (this is also good for your mental health). Do it together with a friend, so it will become fun and routine. Physical activity will accelerate your metabolism and calorie deficiency, and lead to a much greater weight loss.


Obstacles to success
Note that 28% of users do not immediately succeed due to improper use. But after reviewing and following all instructions, about 60% of those are able to succeed as well. The other 40% (comprising 10% of all users) are held back by psychological obstacles, which can make the formula less effective. For example, someone with binge eating disorder regularly eats well past the point of fullness in order to cope with sadness, anger, or stress, and will continue to do this even with the formula. RocaLabs™ Natural Formula works on a physical level to block the stomach and eliminate sugar cravings, but psychological issues must be addressed separately. However, such obstacles can often be resolved simply by recognizing them in one’s daily behavior.


What results can I expect?
The primary goal of the procedure is for you to eat 50% less without feeling hungry. The secondary goal is to change your eating habits by eliminating the urge for food and snacks, and to improve your health. Your weight loss is a byproduct of these results.

Results from Day One
The formula creates an IMMEDIATE gastric bypass effect when properly used. From day one, you:
1. Have only 20% stomach space available for food intake
2. Eat 50% less than before without feeling hungry
3. Feel satisfied after just a few bites
4. Have a natural and pleasant (not heavy or overpowering) sensation of fullness throughout the day, as if you had just finished a meal
5. Feel good knowing that you’ve overcome the urge to overeat
Before going to sleep every night, ask yourself: Have I eaten 50% less today? Your answer will probably be one of the following:
1. “I almost forgot to eat”
2. “I could hardly eat anything”
3. “I ate like a little kid”
With less food intake, you enter a calorie deficiency, where you burn more calories than you consume, and you lose weight from day one - though this will not be noticeable immediately.
Within Several Days
The powerful natural ingredient β-Glucan® will regulate your blood sugar level. As a result, you:
1. Eliminate cravings for sweets and snacks between meals
2. Feel higher energy levels once the “ups and downs” are gone
3. Feel good knowing you’re no longer giving in to cravings
4. Lose even more weight without calorie-rich snacks and sweets

Within 1 Month
You lose 1oz of fat for every 250 unnecessary calories you avoid - this adds up to 15lbs per month if you eat 2000 fewer calories per day.

By Month 4 or 5
Your stomach size has shrunk after becoming accustomed to less food over the past few months. As a result, you:
1. No longer need to use the formula on a regular basis
2. Have improved eating habits, even after finishing the procedure
The formula has a 90% success rate. It is guaranteed to physically block all but 20% of your stomach, and as long as you follow all instructions and address any psychological obstacles you might have, you WILL lose weight!

Why haven’t I lost weight yet?
PROPER USE of the formula is CRUCIAL to achieving the full gastric bypass effect:
1. only 20% stomach space available
2. eat 50% less with no hunger
3. immediate calorie deficiency
4. weight loss
The formula is scientifically proven to work, with a 90% success rate, and 120,000 users will testify to its efficacy. Physically, it ALWAYS WORKS, and from there, weight loss is only a matter of proper usage.
So what do you do if the formula has not worked for you so far? How can you move from the 10% who are not successful to the 90% who are?

These are some potential issues to identify and resolve if they apply to you:

1. Larger Stomach: The formula “shrinks” your available stomach space to 20% for most of the day. If your stomach is larger than average, a larger morning dose is required to achieve the gastric bypass effect.

1. Not Drinking Enough: This will make the formula much less effective, for two reasons:
a. The formula needs to constantly absorb liquids - otherwise it will exit the stomach too quickly.
b. The formula is new to your body, and your brain may confuse thirst with hunger, causing you to overeat.

1. Faster Digestion: If you have a fast digestive system and the formula does not remain in your stomach the entire 10–16 hours, you must take a reinforcement dose later in the day.

1. Improper Food Choices: You must not misuse the 20% stomach space available to you during the process. If you continue to eat calorie-rich foods, you will not be able to enter a calorie deficiency. Only low-calorie foods will enable you to lose weight.

1. Old Habits: If you insist on eating as much food as you did before, or “finishing your plate” even after you are already full, you are overeating. This will actually stretch your stomach further and you will not lose weight. To avoid this:
a. Serve yourself according to your NEW stomach size - only HALF as much food as before will be more than sufficient.
b. Eat very slowly, and take a 3-minute break after eating half of your NEW portion, so you will notice the (unbelievable!) signal from your brain that you are already full.
c. Be tuned to your new level of fullness. You should feel full twice as fast as before, and when you do, stop eating immediately. Achieving your new weight goal is far more important than taking a few more bites.

1. Ignoring Instructions: It is very important to read and follow all instructions. It is not enough to simply take the formula - you must customize the dosage size and frequency for your own needs, and modify certain other behaviors (e.g. drinking more water throughout the day, eating only low-calorie foods), as described in the instructions.

1. Psychological Obstacles: Overeating can be the result of psychological issues that you may not even be aware of, but which can easily be overcome once you recognize them. The procedure can help you to lose weight, change your eating habits, overcome the constant urge for food, and make you look and feel good; but it alone cannot overcome psychological obstacles - these must be dealt with separately.


Avoiding side effects

The formula is probably the most powerful non-prescription weight loss formula in the world, but it has only a few potential side effects. By following these guidelines, you can easily minimize your chances of experiencing any, and resolve them if they do occur.

1. Dehydration: The most common side effect. First manifesting as a headache, this is caused by insufficient water and can lead to further complications if not treated immediately. Solution: Drink plenty of water, rather than taking a painkiller. To prevent, drink water throughout the day as indicated in the instructions. Be sure to drink extra if you use a large or double dose of the formula, or if you consume any alcohol (which has a dehydrating effect).

2. Diarrhea: The formula contains a large quantity of fiber, which is known to be VERY HEALTHY, stimulating prebiotic activity, strengthening the immune system, and lowering cholesterol levels. However, if your body is not used to this much fiber, you may experience diarrhea, bloating, or gas for the first few days of the process, or up to a week. Solution: Take only up to 50% of the dosage for several days and slowly raise it to the normal level as your body adjusts. Also consider splitting this smaller dosage up and taking it several times a day.

3. Gas: This can occur when drinking carbonated beverages, or can be the result of the formula’s high fiber content. Solution: First eliminate carbonated beverages. If symptoms persist, accustom your body to the formula’s high fiber content gradually as described above.

4. Bloated stomach: This can be caused by dairy products increasing your body’s fiber sensitivity. Solution: Reduce or eliminate dairy products for a few days, and then gradually introduce them back into your diet.

As you progress, your body will adjust, and after several days side effects should pass. If they do not, or if you have any other concerns, discontinue use of the formula and consult your personal physician, providing him or her with a list of the formula’s ingredients.
