How does it work?

The Bariatric Surgery ALTERNATIVE™ formula is designed to reduce up to 65% of gastric capacity. As you wake up, consume the morning dose with your favorite flavor. It will sustain you until your first meal 4 hours later.limited stomach capacity

Then you drink the Anti-Cravings® drink twice a day. It’s designed to diminish the detrimental impulses of your body for snacks, sweets and junk food. We view cravings as chemical dependencies rather than psychological issues.


The reinforcement red pills are taken twice a day to enhance the regimen.


add-flavor-for-tasty-doseThe Bariatric Surgery ALTERNATIVE™ formula has almost no flavor when prepared with water. Cherry flavored sample packs are included. The morning dose will taste like the flavor you add when prepared.Crystal light for gaastric sleeve surgery diet


Unfortunately, seeking taste gratification may have led you to becoming overweight. As a TEST of your full commitment to achieving a healthy weight, we would like you to assume that the formula tastes like medicine and ask that you do not buy the regimen if you can not “give up good taste”. You will be required to give up much more than taste during this journey.

Side effects

As the regimen is effectively strong, side effects are a possibility even though all active ingredients are natural. We learned from our undocumented experience, with 80,000 users, that side effects are manageable or avoidable with proper use.

The RULES to be aware of:

  • Dairy and soda cause bloated stomach or diarrhea
  • Overeating can cause a bloated stomach or gas
  • Not drinking 6 bottles of water a day can cause dehydration and headaches (or even further complications)

If you have constipation for more than 1-2 days, stop taking the morning dose. Other side effects are possible and should be reported to your doctor

Bariatric surgery patients

We are familiar with unsuccessful bariatric surgeries where patients have regained their weight. These surgeries are not intended to handle cravings and patients have learned to overcome the post surgery diet restrictions. In contrast, the Bariatric Surgery ALTERNATIVE™ regimen helps you to overcome cravings by teaching you the importance of portion control.

We are not familiar with any complications for bariatric surgery patients while using our regimen. We always recommend beginning with a smaller dose and listening to your body. Be aware that you will have to drink plenty of water. You may also want to consult with your doctor as we can not give you any personal medical advice.

Drug or medical condition

We can not give you personal medical advice. However, the ingredients are natural and are FDA classified as “supplements” – no doctor’s prescription needed as of now. We are not familiar with negative interactions of the regimen with any medical condition. Yet, we do not permit people with kidney issues or a wheat allergy to purchase. It is your responsibility to check with your doctor if any of the ingredients, instructions and RULES are contraindicated with your medical condition.

You may check drug interaction on checker or MedScape.

Although in the beginning, you may lose weight without exercise, the right way is to exercise from day one of the regimen and to signal your body that you are making a physical change to accelerate your weight reduction.



Coach Sharon H. (diabetic type 2 from OH) lost 83 lbs and maintained it off for 2 years. Her A1C dropped from 12% down to 6.5%.

This regimental formula slows glucose absorption and increases insulin sensitivity. As a result, blood glucose levels are better controlled which decreases the risk of long term complications. These complications include but are not limited to: neuropathy (numbness and tingling of peripheral extremities which may lead to amputation), nephropathy (kidney damage) and retinopathy (microvascular damage to the eyes leading to blindness). Primarily, it diminishes cravings for sugary foods and the research of these ingredients show that it may even reverse diabetes. This regimen is not appropriate for Type 1 diabetics.

At this time, the group enjoys the professional advice of a registered dietitian as a clinical expert from The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics organization: eatright.org

Can seniors use it?

Darlene (75years old) lost 81 lbs and has maintained it for 3 years. She was at risk of being wheelchair bound for the rest of her life. Now, she is riding horses and playing with her grandchildren on the floor.

As the body ages, changes in the gastrointestinal tract occur, reducing the absorption of nutrients and slowing down intestinal motility. As a result, malabsorption, nutrient deficiency and constipation are common health problems that affect the elderly of both genders. The natural fibers in the regimen help to stimulate intestinal motility and prevent constipation.

Each pound of weight lost results in a 4 fold reduction in the load exerted on joints during daily activities (Messier 2005). When accumulated over thousands of steps per day, a reduction of this magnitude is clinically meaningful.

Regimen health benefits

The good news is that no matter what your weight loss goal is, even a modest weight loss of 5 to 10 percent of total body weight is likely to produce health benefits. Some of these benefits include: better blood pressure, better blood cholesterol, and better blood sugar levels.

For example, if you weigh 200 pounds, a 5 percent weight loss equals 10 pounds, bringing your weight down to 190 pounds. While this weight may still be in the “overweight” or “obese” range, this modest weight loss can decrease your risk factors for chronic diseases related to obesity.

Even if the overall goal seems large, view it as a journey rather than just a final destination. You’ll learn new eating and physical activity habits that will help you live a healthier lifestyle. These new habits will help you maintain your weight loss over time.

In addition to improving your overall health, maintaining your weight loss is likely to improve your life in other ways. For example, a study of participants in the National Weight Control Registry found that the participants who had maintained a significant weight loss reported improvements in not only their physical health, but also in their energy levels, physical mobility, general mood, and self-confidence.

Joints and Spinal

overweight male - painful jointsEach pound of weight lost results in a 4 fold reduction in the load exerted on joints during daily activities (Messier 2005). When accumulated over thousands of steps per day, a reduction of this magnitude is clinically meaningful. If a 260 lb individual lost 450g (1 lb) and completed the recommended 10,000 steps per day, this would reduce the pressure on joints by 4,535 kg (10,000 lbs) per day.

Leaving the body...

Bariatric Surgery ALTERNATIVE™ formula occupies up to 65% of the stomach (we call it Gastric Bypass Effect®) and leaves the digestive system very slowly while regulating your bowel movements. 

The fiber components are so strong that the stomach can not break them down. Moreover, while in the stomach, the formula continues to absorb water to maintain the effect and slows the absorption of any other foods.

Breathing easier

Excess abdominal weight lowers one’s lung function, regardless of age, gender or smoking history (Enright 2012), because excess fat may constrict the lungs, making it harder to breathe. The Bariatric Surgery ALTERNATIVE™ regimen aids you in lowering your weight thereby improving breathing capacity. This allows you to exercise more easily resulting in further weight reduction.

Decrease cholesterol

In a clinical study, the formulas were shown to reduce cholesterol by 10%. Furthermore, the ingredients work synergistically to improve the cholesterol ratio and decrease total cholesterol. The regimen decreases low density lipoproteins (LDL, “bad cholesterol”) and increases high density lipoproteins (HDL, “good cholesterol”), therefore improving the ratio of good to bad cholesterol. This decreases the risk of cardiovascular diseases such as: coronary heart disease and atherosclerosis.

Sexual improvement

Sexual improvement, in both men and women, is noticeable even after reducing excess fat by 10%.

Obesity leads to a lack of sexual stamina, sexual dysfunction and hormonal imbalance. Weight reduction improves libido regardless of age or gender. Additionally, Yohimbine, an ingredient in the Bariatric Surgery ALTERNATIVE™ regimen, is also used to treat erectile dysfunction (Pittler 1998).

The science

For many, this regimen is a lifesaver that helps them avoid bariatric surgery. The regimen has evolved over the last 9 years, through more than 800 research reviews, expertise from 10 medical-related professionals and the undocumented experience of 80,000 users. While losing more than 100 lbs is possible, it is only conceivable by following ALL of the instructions, including stopping junk food and starting to exercise. Results may vary.

Short FAQ

Difference in plans? The higher level plans have stronger formulas in quality and dosage quantity for a higher chance of success. Also, they come with faster service and more “addons” like activators, flavors, etc. However, your dedication to the process is key.

Health insurance discount? Not presently but you can send the insurance a request for reimbursement: see letter 

How fast can I lose the weight? Everyone loses weight at their own rate. Your commitment to the process and dedication to a healthy diet and exercise are key.

Loose skin? With any major weight reduction, there will be excess skin. We recommend toning exercises and remaining hydrated to minimize the excess skin.

Kosher? Vegetarian not Kosher

Alcohol? We are not aware of interference from drinking alcohol. However, since alcohol causes dehydration, and the formula is already highly water-absorbent, it is crucial to drink plenty of extra non-alcoholic fluids to stay properly hydrated.

Night shift workers: Consider your wake up time as your “morning”. Consume the dose awaiting you in the refrigerator and your first meal will be 3-4 hours later. Crucial that your very last food intake will be no later than 3-4 hours before you fall asleep.

Can I buy the regimen from another user? No, the regimen is created for the person who completed the Weight Analysis and we do not support anyone who has purchased the regimen from another source.

Sharing the regimen: You may let others only try in order to test the Bariatric Surgery ALTERNATIVE™ but not as a complete method to lose weight since the regimen was designed for the person that applied.
