I am so ashamed that my friends are in this "cult" like group and have witnessed deplorable and demeaning messages sent to their group members. When memebers ask anything that to Don Karl Juravin, or the The Don as he calls himself; that don't fall in line with his sales pitch, he goes crazy and writes horrible things to these ladies who just want encouragement in their quest to achieve a healthy weight. I was so shocked when when I saw this, I then realized this group was in a "cult" like atmosphere, and they don't even realize it. Fortunately, it looks like my friends are bailing out, thank god based upon what they have seen. I have posted pics where he says he "conceived" this "miracle" in the Holy Land. I have also posted a pic as with "boot camp rules" and he talks about his studies of the Bible in Hebrew and somehow he can make them lose 50 pounds a month?? When someone says something demeaning or mean to me, I don't take that lightly. Some of these other people are too embarrassed and hurt to fight back. All he wants is to keep tapping their credit card or bank account, and they keep falling for it. Not me. I have posted some of these horrible exchanges as well as two pics from what I, and others considered very offensive from the Gastric Bypass Alternative website. All of these pics were gathered from their website in the public forums. Don't fall for this craziness and join their "cult". I thank pissedconsumer.com for letting us get the truth out.

He tried to get one of his old employees to wear a fat suit and pretend she lost her weight in advertisements. She blew the whistle on this guy, and he still is in the process of suing her.. L.o.s.e.r.

He belittles and puts down yet they praise him and thank him for what? Smh sad sad!!

I'm not in the program but have been following the results of the people and their postings. It's called a boot camp and for a reason!

They joined to lose weight and MANY of them are actually losing weight! You need to be tough on them if you want results. How do you think people in the military are treated during boot camp?

If their soft and easy on them they'll just turn out sissys and snowflakes. People need a kick in the *** every now and then to keep them going!

I am pleading with everyone not to fall for this scam and do your research and talk to a real medical professional who is trained in weight loss. Do your research before you buy from this firm. I found that Don Juravin goes by many names. He goes by (pics provided) Don Karl Juravin, Don juravin and Adi Juravin. This person by his own admission has ZERO medical training. After he was indicted in Israel for bad things(pic provided), he comes to the US and changes his name when googling people's backgrounds become really easy. As you can see from the screen pics, he lived in Florida and you can see that he was in auto accessories business. He then bought a company in Florida, which he changed the name to Roca Labs. He preys on the vulnerable who are over weight and are desperately seeking help. The "help" he offers is bizarre and fake; he admitted that he "tricks his fat customer" into buying his crazy products which have been proven to be worthless by the US Government and his own words in court. I have also uploaded a pic where one of his users is complaining recently that she only lost 9.5 pounds in 3 weeks, and she suffered a seizure from their "regemen"!! She pleads with him (Don Juravin) to let her eat protein ! This is absolutely insane that this poor girl is pleading with this internet huckster for more protein so she won't suffer another seizure! I also put up other pics to support this review so others won't be harmed! Please, please, read the reviews and do your own research. I cannot stand looking at how these poor people are abused and given crazy advice. Talk to your MD and don't take these kinds of risks! It's not worth it ladies!

Don Juravin - Roca Labs - "Gastric Bypass Alternative" SCAM

1.0
Details
The FTC has conducted an investigation of Don Juravin, Roca Labs and the "Gastric Bypass Alternative"-No Surgery. Here is just a few of MANY of the findings... What customers who paid hundreds of dollars for this supposed gastric bypass alternative actually got were common dietary fibers that have been shown to be of little, if any, help in weight loss. The undisputed facts of this case show that Defendants leveraged these core deceptions, and several other deceptive and unfair practices." Defendants also promoted their product through apparently neutral or unbiased referrals. For example, Defendants operated GastricBypass.me, a purportedly independent website providing information about bariatric surgery and alternatives to surgery. Juravin created this site (to educate and scare people about gastric bypass surgery), and Defendants sometimes directed traffic to it via search advertising. There was no disclosure on the GastricBypass.me site that it was affiliated with RLI. Also at Juravins direction, Defendants had their agents create blogs, make embellished or fictitious forum posts or reviews and comment on Roca Labs Facebook ads, all to promote the products and direct traffic to Defendants websites. Defendants endorsements were deceptive. They ran a fake informational website, purporting to educate consumers about gastric bypass surgery, but in reality promoting the Roca Labs products. In some of their videos, they used actors who had never used Roca Labs products, reading scripts written by Juravin and those working at his direction. "Defendants had no competent and reliable scientific evidence to support any of these claims. The FTCs expert, Dr. Steven Heymsfield, reviewed material on the Roca Labs products and ingredients, and other scientific literature. He found no scientific basis for the challenged claims." Medical Legitimacy There is so much information in the FTC investigation, I wanted to dedicate one page addressing the weight-loss and other medical claims of the "Gastric Bypass Alternative" - NO SURGERY from Roca Labs and Don Juravin. We'll start with the claims: (all excerpts are from the FTC's Summary Judgement) "Well Im sure youre wondering, what is the success rate? Roca Labs 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. Youll eat 50% less, and can spare your body as much as 2,000 unnecessary calories a day without feeling any urge to overeat. That equals 15 pounds a month." However, the FTC concluded the following: "What customers who paid hundreds of dollars for this supposed gastric bypass alternative actually got were common dietary fibers that have been shown to be of little, if any, help in weight loss." And in regards to the legitimacy of the medicinal claims of the product, the FTC stated: "Defendants had no competent and reliable scientific evidence to support any of these claims. The FTCs expert, Dr. Steven Heymsfield, reviewed material on the Roca Labs products and ingredients, and other scientific literature. He found no scientific basis for the challenged claims." "Defendants expert, Dr. Jay Hoffman, did not even evaluate whether the challenged claims were substantiated; thus, the FTCs evidence on this crucial point is unrebutted." "Defendants do not possess any study that substantiates their claims. They had one inadequate clinical study on the Roca Labs products themselves, the Clinical Study Report by the Center for Applied Health Sciences (CAHS). That study was completed in September 2015years after Defendants had started making claims. As Dr. Heymsfield notes, that study found no changes in body weight during the 28-day duration, nor were there any statistically significant findings that users felt less hungry when taking the products." "Defendants admit it does not substantiate their claims." "Based on his review, Dr. Heymsfield offered his expert opinion that the literature on weight loss and individual dietary fibers, as well as the research summaries provided by Roca Labs, do not provide competent and reliable scientific evidence for any of the Roca Labs claims." "Defendants expert agrees." Well, there you have it. There is so much more info they found about all Don Juravin's shady dealings. Google it. Educate yourself!

Hey guys! I like you are in search of a workable weight loss plan. When I found this FB group for Roca Labs I was intrigued, until I was insulted by it's owner who claims to be an "Amazing Inventor" from the "Holy Land"......lol. So I started digging around and decided to ask some tough questions about how he can claim to help people lose 50 pounds a month safely, (everywhere professionals say max 2 lbs safely/ week) and what is all this nasty business online about a case against him where he basically admitted his product was fake. I have posted some screen shots where they make the weight loss claim on their website and several shots of his reaction and a screen shot of some pills that he is marketing as a part of the so called "regimen" that when you look closely at the screen shoot, it says on the pill bottle " White Pills" " Stress + Sleep ( "anti-***")". Very, very unprofessional I must say. Are you *** kidding me? Is this guy serious? How are people falling for this scheme? Well, enjoy the proof I have posted and I must encourage you potential patients to ask tough questions because it is your life. Don't take chances with that and God bless you.

Do what I did to lose weight. I lowered my calories, stopped eating junk and excercised. Guess what? I lost weight safely and naturally.

Amazing? Not really, just try it without the hocus pocus.

Very sick

I started this product on Thursday June 22,2017 . I followed the plan as instructed my first dose of the reducer was at 9:00am drinking 16 oz of water afterwards. At 11:00 am I took one red and one yellow capsule along with another 160z of water then fixed something to eat 4 hours after first dose. At 1:00pm I took one *** of food and from 1pm until 10:00pm I was vomiting non stop with severe abdominal pain. I was rushed in an ambulance to hospital with a GI bleed I took all the products with me and one nurse took it upon herself to call the poison control and they told her never to let me take it again it was poisoning and burning up my stomach. It's Saturday I'm home after many test,IV's, IV meds for pain, stomach bleed and spasms as well as headaches and an IV antibiotic. The hospital tried to contact this company my sister tried to correspond to them via email and my husband tried a number on the bottle and it says not to leave messages I was listed on their gastric hub and a face book site for users when I put a message out there to please read what you are taking it is NOT FDA approved then I was blocked from the hub and face book site! I don't want this stuff to kill anyone and I was a healthy person some who buy this product won't be so healthy. Can you please help me get the word out and get a refund

The photos depicting how this product "works" is complete bunk. Think about it.

There is a reason why most gastric bypass or balloon etc are placed at/near the top of the stomach? If something fills the bottom of your stomach (as the pics state) it could cause a bowel obstruction. Which one person stated this gave him in an online review I came across. Of course, Don Juravin attacked this reviewer and threatened the reviewer with litigation.

(that's his MO)

Regardless, the FTC investigation revealed this product is a scam. It contains nothing more than common dietary fibers, and has no actual scientific proof to substantiate the claims.

I am so shocked that the authorities are still letting them sell this stuff when so many people are reporting this. It seems they play games with everyone like this.

I got the same from them as well. My hubby and I did a little looking and it seems the company address for Roca to find them is a bit of a dead end, but he lists a PO Box in Montverde, Florida as an address for Gastric Bypass No surgery. We did find his home address which according to google maps and the property appraiser's office right around the corner from his PO Box. I would send the complaints to him directly and maybe that might work.

Good luck and hope this works and get better!

More and more customers and people like me are reporting with greater frequency the threats of lawsuits from Roca Labs and it's owner. The people he threatens are regular folks and he knows that most people don't have the money or experience to defend these ridiculous threats, and it scares them. However, there are some people who are not scared because they have some experience in the legal arena and know that his threats are quite hollow. First, when you get a threat from them, do your research. There is no "them". Roca Labs is now down to one man, his wife and a third rate lawyer who is desperately trying to defend him in the FTC lawsuit, good luck with that. Google his corporate headquarters address for Roca that they list on their website and you find it is a cheap retail storefront ( pic provided of 7261 S. Tamiami Trail, Sarasota Fl. Address at bottom of pic) that sells patio furniture in a *** neighborhood. Keep googling his name you you will find one bad story after another from many different sources going back years. Keep googling Roca' s name and his original name of Adi Juravin and you will find he was indicted in Israel back in the early 2000's for bad business conduct against consumers there. The pages are endless with this stuff. Consumers should not be afraid of a little man who is a bully and thinks he is smarter than everyone else. Don't be afraid to say or write what you feel is the truth. Stay strong people and don't be scared! All items posted here were freely obtained from public sources available to everyone.

I have read many negative reviews on this man and his company but I also saw what I thought were good reviews. So when you make the call and they put you through the ringer or what they call the qualification process; they make you think that it is a privilege to buy from them. They also go onto to tell you that this product and regimen was custom made for you by the owner, Don Carl Juravin who invented this miracle invention just for people like me. They even told me that he is from the Holy Land and his product is somehow connected to the old prophets?????? Whoa...I did not expect that one, but entertaining when you think about it. So the bait was taken. When you need them they are happy to hit your bank account but when you start asking difficult questions, you are suddenly disconnected, over and over. Could this be a coincidence or is some sort of weird weather phenomenon causing the phones to go out? No. They are as I came to find out full of it. When you finally get someone on the phone and you ask for a refund because it does not work, they say no way, no refund. They also tell you that they give you your money back if Don Juravin deems you a success in his sole discretion and if Don likes me, he might give me a trip to Disney World. What kind of *** do they think I am? I don't take that *** from anyone and told them I would post online how they treat people. Well, that got a quick response. The owner, Don Juravin threatened me with a lawsuit for defamation. Go ahead and file yet another suit you *** ( Which according to public records you have lost every single one) which you are going to lose. I hope you can afford to sue me where I live in Mexico. From what I read now about you, you may not be able to put bread on your own table much less suing everyone who criticizes you and your worthless products.

He then kicked me off the site and said in a pretty thick accent that he "was going to sues me for the defamations" and that my "hearings were not so good, as I did not listen to his speaking".

Roca Labs and Gastric Bypass Alternative or Gastric Bypass NO surgery as they tout themselves make some pretty outrageous claims that consumers should be very wary of. The owner of the company is Don Karl Juravin and he claims to be the # 1 weight loss guru in the entire United States! That's a pretty bold claim, and it is also false. I will however say that everyone is entitled to their own opinion though, no matter how wrong it may be. When on their website, you will notice that they claim you can lose many pounds a day on their "regemin" as they call it. I found in papers that were filed by the courts they admitted openly that you will lose weight just by lower calorie intake, fasting and exercise alone, without using their product which contains nothing but common dietary fibers. Additionally, Roca's own expert that they hired in their big federal case they are getting crushed in, even said he could not support their outrageous claims. So be careful out there! There are tons of internet hucksters out and about just dying to take your money.

I was a user of the product. However, you can do this all on your own with drinking lots of water. However, the person "Don" is an evil man and if you said one wrong thing on the gastric bypass alternative no surgery FB page about the product you would be expelled from the page and no longer be able to post or be part of the group. He then would pm people threaten of slander and defamation of character when the man does not even understand what these two words mean. He also would then publicly shame anyone who mentioned anything that was against the product or a question that could go against the product. By posting the thread to the page and then would bash the person. He also has posted in the gastric.care/FAQ site that anyone whom met their goal weight would receive a 100% refund. I met my goal weight and never received a 100% refund nor a refund of any kind. Many never received refunds that he claimed he would do. Also when he first opened his page the FAQ the ingredients were not listed and people with celiacs had purchased the program. They came to find out they would not be able to use the product. When these people contacted him he would then also threaten them with legal action because they would want to return the product because they could not use it. He would make it extremely difficult with wanting to press charges. Saying they were harassing him. I wish i woukd have seen this site before hand.

Everyone should google his name and his company before jumping in. It will definitely open one's eyes as to what his modus operandi is.

You ask any question openly about him or the products which may be negative, he then bans you from the site. After that, he wil pm you and threaten to sue you.

The guy is a broke, dead beat, and blow hard. Dont be afraid to ask him questions.

It's funny watching him spin out of control. Spin Don, Spin!!!!

Did you notice how delusional he seems on his FB page? He likens himself to a miracle worker or some sort wizard healer!

I would stay away from crazies like him. He is not right upstairs.

Tricked after cancellation and order shipped anyway....

Update by user Jun 14, 2017

Now I am being threatened with a suit for defamation. I am telling the truth.

This product made me sick and I have documentation of the cancelation. I never confirmed or agreed to the terms.

Original review posted by user Jun 13, 2017
I read about some of his shenanigans after I ordered and when he sent me a confirmation via text to sign I cancelled. He shipped it after cancellation and I knew I had to keep it because of the no returns policy. So from the beginning I am suckered in. So I figured I would try it. After 4 days of diarrhea, nausea, weakness, headache, dehydration and dizziness I became sick. I stopped use on the 5th day. I contacted PayPal where my payment went through. Had I not opened it and returned it due to my cancellation and shipment anyway they would have returned my money. I was duped and lost $550 due to my lack of knowledge. This man should be put out of business for making false claims. This product will make you sick.

Are you crazy? You should read up on this stuff!

Roca admitted the stuff does nothing for you.

Eat less, drink lots of water and excercise, and guess what???? You lose weight, period without ingesting common household ingredients that have been coloured a nasty pink

Don't worry about this loser who is a broke dead beat. This guy cannot afford any new lawsuit as there are tons of lawsuits and personal judgments against him for millions!

Google his name and see what you get!!

I would not worry a bit with him threatening to sue you. First of all, he has failed on every occasion when he has done this. Second, he is on the *** of bankruptcy with the IRS judgment against him for over one million dollars, not mention the fact that the government is going to get another judgment against him personally for over $25 million dollars.

The guy is an *** who has run out of time and money.

Roca Labs - AMAZING experience using Don Juravin's invention
I have been on Roca Labs's amazing regimen invented by Don Karl Juravin for around 4 months. This regimen is by far the most AMAZING product to give you the will power to taking your life back and claiming healthy body and mind. I was given the right tools including time frame, diet suggestions and most importantly the moral support by thousands of other users who have gained success with this TRUST worthy invention. I am just 20 lbs away from goal weight and have received the second round of my supply already. I am so thankful for providing me the regimen and being so helpful in each step of my weight loss journey. Its because of this amazing system I am able to reach near to my healthy weight goal.

"TRUST worthy" is one word, Don. I'll use it in a sentence. For example, "You are not trustworthy."

#1342063

Don.. These are so bad..

It must be just a coincidence how all of these "reviews" get posted on the same day.

I cant believe you made as much as you did off "dietary fibers" and fake sites.

But I guess its ok. Between the IRS and FTC, all that will be gone soon.

Roca Labs and Don Karl Juravin exposed! Learn the truth!
I , like many others have been following the online legal troubles saga of Roca Labs and It's NOT SO AMAZING inventor/owner, Don Karl Juravin. First of all, when I say saga, I really mean comedic buffoonery. Now that we have that one out, you can probably tell that I am not a fan. Well, it's true, and I must admit that I am not. When the FTC announced thier lawsuit against he and Roca Labs, they said, and I quote, " Don Juravin has an adversarial relationship with the truth". That is a pretty strong statement from the Feds, and apparently, I am not the only "non fan" of this guy out there. I found webpage after webpage dedicated to exposing the antics of this company and it's owner. I have included some snap shots for your reading pleasure, including a very funny fake endorsement about Juravin, and of course; written by Juravin. Look, I don't make this stuff up! The Don, as he refers to himself, gives me the materials! In conclusion, if you are seeking safe weight loss, contact a real medical professional and not some internet crackpot who admitted that his product was fake and he had to "trick" his customers to buy his products. Google his name and read the official court testimony and see for yourself. * All items posted here were obtained openly on the internet and through official court records available to anyone online*

Actually, its great that people are starting to see the truth about this scam. LOOK AT THE FACTS DON, I mean "Julie".

IF you were actually a real person, you would have lost that weight starving yourself, not from anything this fake product does. Don, sorry, "Julie", Don said it himself right here in the FTC deposition. And I quote, "I need to make my fat customer, I need to make them fast 16 hours. I cannot be direct with them, and say, hey, youre going to fast 16 hours.

Just listening to that is scary. I have to trick the customer with love."

IF by chance your are someone other than Don or his "people", do some research, learn the facts, and save yourself money.

Stop giving it to a *** man.

And if your actually Don or one of his "people", stop fooling others and stop fooling yourself.

Anonymous
#1338519

This is a fake review. Notice the terrible photo, the way its written etc...

I assume it is another fake review by none other than Don Juravin. Only Don Juravin calls himself "the inventor"...Please.. The FTC exposed that he creates fake reviews, blogs, webpages as other people to promote his product.

They also concluded his product is nothing more than dietary ingredients that do nothing to promote weight-loss, and that the consumer basically starves themselves while paying hundreds to do so. Save your money for a product that's healthy and works.

Roca Labs - Don Karl Juravin- BUSTED
Don Karl Juravin, owner of Roca Labs and Gastric Bypass Alternative NO surgery has been busted again by the Fraud Busters Team for writing fake reviews again. When you read a positive review on him or his company, don't believe it for a New York minute, he or one of his wife wrote it and more than likely paid for it. Please note the first two items posted above. Pic 1 is supposedly from a customer praising him as a her "mentor" and "amazing inventor". Please note pic 2 taken directly from his website where you see the testimonial which has been proven to be a paid testimonial. Pic 3 is a funny one. This an excerpt of a testimonial for his website that was posted by him as being from the "land of Moses and Jesus of Nazerath" and "he has more in common with these religious icons than just a sacred birthplace. He is regularly hearalded as a miracle worker". It goes on to say that he "is regularly showered with praise" and " for inventing, promoting and operating the gastric bypass alternative ". Give me an F' ING break. Don't fall for this scam artist and his crew.
