The Roca Labs weight-loss regimen consists of a fiber formula which, when combined with water, expands to partially fill the stomach. The company claims that one morning dose mixed with water replicates the mechanics of gastric bypass surgery and lasts throughout the day.
The dieter feels full even when consuming less food, which means reduced calories. For every 1,750 calories skipped, the dieter may lose approximately one-half pound. Roca Labs also offers Anti-Cravings, a product that may reduce cravings for sugary treats and between-meal snacks for some people. Roca Labs recommends that dieters supplement the diet program with exercise for optimum results.
