Roca Labs Procedure Rules & Diet
Read this page frequently v1.0
While Suggested Use shows how to prepare a dose, and suggests best ways to maintain the gastric bypass effect, these Rules & Diet MUST BE FOLLOWED ENTIRELY while using the procedure unless any rule compromises your health or is not approved by your doctor, as stated in the Terms.
Limited Eating Interval™ between 11am and 8pm ONLY
You may choose any 9 hour interval for your daily food consumption. No deviation is allowed. Before 11am, you may have a healthy snack limited to 100 calories. Between 8-10pm, you may snack on vegetables like carrots, celery or occasionally, low calorie popcorn.
Limited Eating Interval™ conditions your body/mind to feel hunger satisfied while you burn existing fat during the no-food period. Eating only during 9 hour span is the most important rule and your chance to succeed will increase by 85%. This regime promotes stronger insulin sensitivity and increased growth hormone secretion which are essential for weight loss and muscle gain (instead of fat). It can also result in eliminating sugar and junk food cravings. Based on your insulin/leptin resistance, it might take a couple of months for your trained body to be satisfied with healthy eating. Once successful, your glycogen depleted body has learned to burn existing fat rather than crave immediate junk food. Limited Eating Interval™ can increase insulin sensitivity and mitochondrial energy efficiency. Your body will be reducing oxidative stress and inducing a cellular stress response which can help you cope with stress eating and can account for up to 8 lbs weight loss a month.
Diabetes, pregnant and breastfeeding users should not follow this rule but create their own eating intervals with their physician. Seniors or any person with medical condition should consult a doctor.
Serve yourself HALF and eat slowly
While on the procedure, your functional stomach is smaller and you only need HALF your previous food consumption. Overeating will result in side effects and expand your stomach pouch. To avoid being tempted to overeat, serve yourself only HALF the servings as before. If buying a meal divide it before hand. Chew slowly, wait 1 minute between bites. Overeating or eating fast can cause bloated stomach, gases or diarrhea
Minimize processed foods
Ready meals achieve their taste from extra salt, fat, sugar and chemicals and can trigger cravings.
One size down
Hang a size smaller clothing in your bedroom AND on/near the refrigerator. As soon as it fits, repeat the process. Picture/film your success and destroy any larger size.
To avoid side effects and to comply with the Roca Labs’ procedure, limit fried/oily foods to a small serving, once a week.
Drink to prevent side effects
Your body needs water to process calories. If you are even mildly dehydrated, your metabolism may slow down. To maintain the gastric bypass effect, drink at least six ½ liter bottles of water a day. If you feel light headed consider you have overdrunk. Be attuned to your body.
Exercise to shock your body
After losing about 35% of your excess body weight you might find losing becomes harder. Exercising will boost your metabolism, lower insulin levels, trigger release of “good feeling” hormones and improve sex life. Roca Labs’ procedure requires that you exercise 5+ times a week. If necessary, start slowly and gradually increase to at least 30 minutes daily. Exercising regularly will boost your mood, reduce stress, ward off anxiety and feelings of depression and will improve your sleep.
Video document your success and get up to 50% Money Back
Record your weight each morning, naked, preferable after bowel movement. Once a week, video a clip outlining your achievements and weight loss goal for the next 7 days. Show evidence of weight loss: fitting into a lower size clothing, mentioning number of pounds you lost that week, share compliments you have received, tips from your success, etc. If you have not done well that week explain the reason for your failure and what changes you’ll make in the coming week. You have 73% more chance to succeed when you visually document your progress. Remember, you can be an inspiration to many others and… you can receive Money Back (see page) for success.
Limit caffeine to the very minimum
About an hour after having caffeine, insulin levels spike and cravings intensify. Cortisol also indirectly influences appetite by modulating other hormones and stress responsive factors known to stimulate appetite.
