The 10 Worst Foods Everyone is Eating

April 06, 2015 3 min read

There are lots of people out there with terrible eating habits. Say you've been following a diet and sticking to it, you should be all good right? Not necessarily. With more research, comes more information. Sometimes the food we think is good for us turns out to be otherwise. Read the list below to see what you can cut out of your diet.

1. Coffee Creamer

If love coffee but find yourself making it in a hurry or on the go, you may be using an instant creamer, one that doesn't need to be refrigerated. They contain a whack of preservatives and additives making them painfully unhealthy. Instead, use milk or a creamer that needs to be chilled.

2. Margarine

If you buy your margarine in the stick form, you are not helping yourself out any. The stick form of margarine contains lots of trans fats and is loaded with calories. These things can harm your blood vessels and add extra weight.

3. Bacon

Have you ever had left over bacon? I didn't think so. Bacon is a super popular meat but it is also loaded with sodium which increases your risk of heart disease as well as your risk of developing high cholesterol.

4. Artificial Sweeteners

I know you want to cut sugar, but artificial sweeteners are not really the answer. Many Sweeteners are high in additives that can lead to type-2 diabetes, some forms of cancer and cardiovascular disease.

5. Soda

Soda is not your friend. It is no longer a secret that soda contains lots of calories and loads of sugar. Some sodas contain BVO (brominated vegetable oil) which can lead to skin problems, dementia and memory loss.

6. Whole Milk

Although you might like the taste better than say, skim milk, whole milk is fattening. It can clog arteries in a hurry. Swap it out for a lower fat version.

7. Bagels and Bread

White breads are high in calories and can lead to a mid day energy crash. Aim for the whole wheat options instead.

8. Pop Tarts

I know Pop Tarts have been an easy and convenient breakfast and snack food for a long time but all good things must come to an end. Pop Tarts have little nutritional value and are loaded with white flour and sugar. Try for a breakfast with more protein.

9. Microwave Popcorn

Microwave popcorn might seem like a good idea come movie night, but it is not at all. The coating on the interior side of the bag has been noted to cause liver and prostate cancers. They have also found a link between microwave popcorn and lung cancer. Time for some air popped popcorn, I'd say.

10. Hot Dogs

Anyone surprised by this one? As a processed meat, hot dogs are fattening and can lead to heart disease and certain cancers. And aside from all that, most hot dogs are made from worst possible meat. Real scary meat. Healthy eating isn't a quick fix to diet woes, it is a lifestyle. But the easiest way to keep it in check is to skip processed foods all together. Aim for fresh, whole foods. Anything on this list that crops up in your diet from time to time? Let us know in a comment.

Shipping & Delivery

Fast, Express Shipping.

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-5 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
