Well, some people argue that they were already on a reduced calorie diet before starting Roca. Well, it states in the literature and on the website under: What results can I expect?
"From day one, eat 50% less than before without feeling hungry...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."
I don't know about you, but I will have to increase my dose. I must have a bucket for a stomach. This is coming to the end of week#2 for me. So far I only lost 2lbs. But will be 'weighing- in' on Monday.
A Sample meal:
April 22,2011 Yesterday
Breakfast:I added Roca to my 3/4 c.applesauce + a med banana and 5 strawberries
Lunch: I had 4 oz fish and water
Dinner: baked chicken & steamed veggies
One Week Observation: I felt noticeably fuller throughout the day when added to applesauce. I also felt like gagging but added more sauce to the mix, it was fine. When I started last week, I only added it to water with crys. light (CL) and then drink it before it gets thick. What I noticed was that I didn't feel as full and I had to take 2 doses. But i was also constipated , gassy and bloated.
Week #2 is coming to a close and must state that I feel much better than last week. I'm not having as many sweet cravings as before. EASTER is tomorrow April 24th, 2011 and it's also my House Settlement closing date Anniversary and I admit, it will be tempting to celebrate with fattening food,& Easter candy.
So this brings me back to the original topic question , What Are You Eating Besides Roca? I hope that you are focused on the renewed energy and less on what you are putting in your mouths. I'm going to give it more time to work, I know that I'm not eating the 2600 daily calories needed to maintain my Pre Roca weight.So if the 90% chance of success is true and I continue to eat 50% less food, then 50% of 2600 calories is 1300 calories per day. That is healthy calorie reduction.
