Your a petty insignificant a.s.s.c.l.o.w.n, Don. Perhaps you could learn to actually write a response. Not to mention, YOU should not be critiquing the writing of anyone.

Hi guys...please read this before you make such an important decision concerning your health. There are numerous complaints and lawsuits against Roca Labs, Gastric Bypass Alternative, GBA, Don Karl Juravin personally and Must Cure Obesity, LLC that you need to read! These complaints go back for years and Roca Labs and it's owner Don Karl Juravin lost big time to pissedcnsumer.com in a lawsuit where he tried to get them to remove these reviews. Good for pissedconsumer and freedom of speech. When you read these things, think hard about your safety and your family. You are not the bad person they say you are. Don't fall prey to these guys who prey upon people like you, and me. Stay strong and do it right! I have downloaded this review and pictures so consumers can be well informed and not make the same mistakes as others have done. All the items I uploaded I obtained freely online and through the public record

Roca Labs-Don Juravin....No magic here, seek real medical help

1.0
Details
I am a weight loss specialist and an M.D. based in the LA area mainly seeing patients who are morbidly obese. Many of my patients come to me after trying many, many different ways to lose weight. More often than not, this name of Don Juravin pops up in many consults. Let it be known that I DO NOT recommend bariatric surgery for 90 percent of my patients, nor do I recommend these nutty approaches to something that can be dangerous to one's health. There are many different ways to lose weight, and most methods do not include surgery. It is typically a simple program where one lowers the caloric intake; has an increase of physical activities and a healthy approach to life, with a disciplined variety in one's diet. It is simple and there is no "magic" like Don Juravin proclaims. I have watched his videos and seen his programs. Pure hocus pocus, nothing more nothing less. Additionally, he has apparently admitted that his main product that is supposed to fill you up for hours, is basically a hoax. Before you make this important decision, please consult a real professional with training and not someone who claims that God sent you to him....it's all bunk. I did not write this because I need more patients. I am genuinely scared at what I see.

I bet Don Juravin clicked the only No. Its kinda sad actually.

I picture him sitting at his computer in the dark, aglow in the light from his monitor.

His Face flushed red with embarrassment. His bow-tie spinning in anger as he finally and emphatically clicks the left button of his mouse over the "no" button while speaking it aloud.

Don Juravin - Roca Labs - BUSTED!! Nothing but SCAMMERS and LIARS!!!
Don Juravin, the "inventor" of the useless "Gastric Bypass Alternative" - No Surgery SCAM, got busted in 2014 for faking celebrity endorsements, namely, Alfonso Ribeiro and Tommy Chong. I know what your thinking, strange choices. But I suppose at the time they (or at least Ribeiro) were gaining a bit of notoriety for appearing in "Dancing with the Stars", so perhaps that's why he picked them. Ribeiro was photo shopped holding a container of the scam product, and appearing to endorse its claims. In an article for Ars Technica, Megan Geuss stated the following; "Juravin claimed in his affidavit that he bought a $5.99 subscription to pissedconsumer.com in order to post a positive review. He went on to allege that his subscription was "canceled" and his positive review removed for being in favor of Roca Labs. "My post complied with all the Terms and Conditions of pissedconsumer.com but was blocked because pissedconsumer.com will not allow positive information to come forward. Despite its representations, Opinion Corp. and pissedconsumer.com do not want consumers to have the ability to make informed decisions, but merely want to provide false, misleading and defamatory information about Roca Labs." Funny that he sued this site for providing false, misleading and defamatory information, when he was ACTIVELY deceiving people with fake reviews from celebrities. This guy does not have a shred of self-awareness, and constantly shows his own hypocrisy. You cannot trust anything this guy says. Do you see legit companies have these issues? NO? Why? Because they are actually legitimate companies that aren't trying to scam you! DO NOT fall for it! Do research on him, and all the serious legal issues he's embroiled in!

Hey Don, whoops, I mean Kelly. Come back to earth.

You know your a liar. How could you possibly place yourself along Jesus you hypocrite.

IF you want to get biblical about it, he (you) is/are more like the pharisees. Lying to try to keep your prominence and money.

Misleading others and making ridiculous claims in an attempt to cover up his own deceptions. Always trying to convince people of his "holiness" while attacking the ones who actually expose his lies with the truth.

Or perhaps he's similar to the merchants Jesus whipped in the temple. Using shady business practices and trying to make money off of honest people.

But quite frankly, ALL OF THIS is ABSURD.

It comes down to the truth and facts. It's all in the investigation.

Its all over the internet.

Any sane individual would look at these posts and see that either Don Juravin has a few screws loose or the people who post replies like this do.

One more thing Kelly (Don).

Juravin keeps aligning himself with Moses and Jesus. Have you forgotten that they gave up their chance at wealth in pursuit of following God and goodness?

Unlike Juravin, they didn't lie and scam people for a profit.

They didn't live in mansions with expensive cars.

And IF Juravin was truly a religious man, he would know that comments like "divine pronouncements" and placing himself with Jesus border on blasphemy.

Please....Therapy.

Roca Labs - CRAZY SCAM SALES PITCH! Don Juravin tells us on live FB not to worry about what's in it or how it works!!??!! Have I lost my marbles?

This is one of the craziest sales pitches I have ever seen. People are watching these crazy sales pitches live and buying into the nonsense. Don Juravin starts the live FB session the other night with a weird intro telling us that he is the #1 Weight Loss Guru in America and close his birth place was to Nazareth where Jesus was born and how we can lose up to 6 pounds a night by following his rules and taking "white and red pills" followed up by drinking what seems like gallons of water. Then he introduces us to his "night magic pill", and goes onto say that we can lose up to 6 pounds??!!?? Every night??!!??? How does that one work Don? He then says to us that we should not worry about the ingredients or how it works....say what? Did I just hear that? He says that no one understands how it works, only him. Give me a break. This internet carpet bagger is really trying to pull one over on us. Not me sister. This is crazyville and I am outta here

You are obviously a non believer whoever the coward is that wrote this demonic and horrible review of our GREAT LEADER, SAVIOUR and AMAZING INVENTOR Don Karl Juravin. Our Don was born in the Holy Land and conceived of his AMAZING invention there.

He has brought us his AMAZING and HOLY invention to use so we can be healthy.

Our Don, like Jesus, is being persecuted and vilified by non-believers and those non-believers will regret their evil words when like Jesus, our GREAT LEADER will rise up against all of you. Praise be unto our GREAT LEADER Don Karl Juravin!

FTC has investigated and found many disturbing facts about the claims that Roca Labs, Don Juravin have made regarding "Gastric Bypass Alternative" - No Surgery. CBS reported on some of the findings in an Oct. 1 2015 report that can be found at the following link. http://www.cbsnews.com/news/ftc-lawsuit-roca-labs-weight-loss-powder-gag-clause-customers-sued/ Not only did Don Juravin/Roca Labs employ deceptive business practices, including creating fake "third party" websites and reviews to make his product appear to be medically legitimate, but even advertised that the product was safe for children. The FTC investigation found that no proper clinical trials had been preformed to even support any of the claims. On the contrary, the investigations found that the "pink rubbery goo" customers would have to eat, contained "common dietary fibers" that have been proven to aid very little, if at all, with weight-loss. Ultimately, any weight-loss would be the result of starvation by fasting for 16 hours, drinking only water. Don Juravin said it himself in the FTC deposition. He stated, "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." In addition, when customers made negative reviews of the product, they were bullied and hit with lawsuits claiming they violated a "gag-clause." PLEASE do fall for the lies Don Juravin makes regarding any of his products, and subject yourself to his unhealthy weight-loss SCAM!!

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.

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!

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.

You cant belive everything you read on the internet. I dont believe all the wonderful stuff I read anymore than I believe all the bad. Most of the bad I read sounds like the same person over and over again.

He is pretty much finished and washed up. The Feds will put this scammer out of our misery. No one will shed a tear.

This "Inventor" just wants you to pay him to starve yourself.

This guy is a JOKE and a crybaby. WATCH OUT!!

If he doesn't like something you say, he'll hit you with a frivolous lawsuit!!

He LOVES to waste the courts time.

He has such little self-awareness that in his deposition with the FTC, he just strait up admits that he has to "trick his customers with love."

Total scammer.

Haha! Good, funny and informative review.

There is too much of this craziness on the web where so much fake info is passed out and taken as a time tested fact.

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.
