    I've been trying to find factual information and reviews of this supposed liquid alternative to gastric bypass (fills the stomach to 80% capacity with a jello-like substance you drink daily). The majority of information I've found is from Roca Labs itself (is it even a real lab?). What is their research? What studies have been done backing their claims? Is it even safe? Everything I've found reads like an Infomercial with no real information. YouTube has some video reviews of people using it but no one has lost any more than I did using healthy eating and exercise and I can't find any reviews of anyone who has been on it more than 7 weeks.

    If it truly worked it could be beneficial in curbing hunger while on a calorie restricted diet...or maybe before going out to dinner at a buffet. It could also cause a bowel obstruction...who knows? I can't find good information on it.

    Does anyone know where I can find the facts about it? I'm at a point in my weight loss journey where my metabolism has kicked up a notch and I'm hungry all the time. It could be a very helpful tool...or it could be $480 worth of Metamucil.
