Cost Savings Calculator

What’s my REAL cost to lose weight including potential savings on medical bills, physician visits & food

Bariatric surgeries DON'T solve CRAVINGS
Bariatric surgeries DON’T solve CRAVINGS or overeating

Cutting and dividing the stomach in the surgery merely causes an earlier artificial sensation of fullness. However, as reality shows, bariatric surgery patients, are not prevented from continuing to eat (“grazing”). They simply overcome the restriction of the surgery by eating “liquid” calories or softer foods with high calories and fat. The total calories consumed can reach pre-surgical levels. Cravings are not controlled and the cause of cravings, macronutrient, and micronutrient deficiencies, are not addressed. Multiple short and long term negative health effects are common to all types of bariatric surgeries and include alteration of the normal intestinal bacteria flora, protein-calorie malnutrition, and other.

Am I qualified?

Requirements

53% of applicants are approved to buy upon completion of the Weight Analysis. Apply only if:

  • You don’t have an allergy to wheat or gluten
  • You don’t have kidney issues
  • You can follow all instructions and RULES such as avoiding dairy, soda, sweets, fried or junk foods
  • You’re overweight by more than 35 lbs
  • You don’t have any drug interaction or sensitivity to any of the natural active ingredients
  • You don’t have an eating disorder or psychological disorder which may interfere with your success

Conclusion

  • More people reach the 50% goal mark with gastric bypass and roux-en-y
  • Average weight loss “success” is higher with gastric sleeve
  • Lowest chance (yet, still high) chance of FAILURE is with gastric bypass and roux-en-y
  • Highest chance of FAILURE is with the Lap-Band surgery
  • All bariatric surgeries have 100% negative health effects (side effects or worse) in the short and long terms
  • Similar complications are expected with gastric bypass, roux-en-y and gastric sleeve
  • Worse reoperation rate is 41% for Lab-Band surgery
  • Highest success for diabetes reversal, at ~75%, goes to gastric bypass and roux-en-y
  • No bariatric surgery provides solution (0%) for CRAVINGS

 

 

Healthy weight WITHOUT bariatric surgery is now possible

The Gastric Bypass ALTERNATIVE invention has saved probably thousands from the risky surgery

Rachel GordonJenny Bishop, We do see a difference with the 40lbs lost especially in your chin Make sure to read your HUB daily and do your QUIZ to see how you can improve your results. gastric.care/HUB In #TheDON boot camp you are expected to be motivated, wanting to live longer & be healthier. You want to spend money on toys and vacations and NOT on doctors & drugs. Being in this group means that you have already decided that you deserve to live better. We must NOT take the Gastric Bypass ALTERNATIVE regimen (tool) for GRANTED. On the road to your healthy weight there will be many temptations, NO excuses and always keep focused. We would love to see full body pics

My advice, even if you get qualified, don't do it unless you are fully committed or it will be a waste of money

If you are determined, it's better than any bariatric surgery

Amy PipesA friend of mine had the laser surgery on her stomach...Her surgery was $6500. She has had good results and no issues but IMO I think this is the better way to go. Cost wise...it will probably end up being half of that (for a year!)..plus the savings on groceries will be amazing. I havent started yet...waiting for mine.

Hello everyone, my name is Norma Kilcrease from Andalusia, Al. I just received my packet on Saturday and today has been day 1 for me. I'm tired of being fat and unable to buy sexy clothes to wear because of all this fat I am toting around. I'm through with being tired and exhausted all the time. I am a single mom of three beautiful young adults. I have gone through 3 divorces so I have done a lot of emotional eating. But that is stopping as of today! Today was not bad at all. No cravings or hunger. I am so proud I finally took the plunge and started my way to a healthy life. I've tried just about every diet available. I did the Phen Phen diet in the late 90's and lost 50 lbs but the got pregnant with my third child and gained it all back and more. This is the heaviest I've ever been unless pregnant. I can't stand this fat anymore!! It has to go!!! ... See MoreSee Less

Rachel GordonTeresa Scott, We do see a difference with the 102 lbs lost How many inches have you lost? As you have seen the “regimen” does not work by itself, not even a drug or a surgery works “by itself’ without your full determination or commitment. You are making the regimen work for YOU. You are showing to us all that you are taking your health seriously and proving to us that you are serious about being a future healthy weight graduate of this boot camp.
