11 Ways To Wake Up Thinner

July 14, 2014 2 min read

Wake up thinner than the night before, and no it’s not a dream, just 11 solid health tips to fight overnight bloat: wake up thinner
  1. Eat your daily fibre – the fibre found in fruits, veggies, and whole grains will help with the digestive processes and reduce bloat.
  2. Drink water – if you’re body feels dehydrated it will retain water, so you wake up feeling bloated. Make sure to get 8-10 glasses to feel fully hydrated.
  3. Just dance – both the amazingly fun wii game, and the action in general, dancing is a great way to burn calories without thinking about it. Of course, almost any exercise in general will help you wake up thinner than the day before.
  4. Lower your sodium intake – salt will make you retain water, and is the number one culprit when it comes to bloating in general. Cut the salt to wake up thinner.
  5. Avoid late night snacks – eat a balanced dinner to combat those late night cravings. Also try to realize when you’re hungry and when you’re just bored, as a lot of snacking occurs because of boredom rather than actual hunger.
  6. Wear fitted pajamas – this one I hadn’t thought of before, but it’s true, if your jammies are big and loose it gives you room to gain weight. If your pajamas are getting snug it’s time to reassess and wake up with renewed motivation.
  7. Think positive – a happy and positive mindset can work absolute wonders, giving you motivation and energy to achieve your goals and go to bed happy.
  8. Avoid certain foods – to be less vague, there are certain bloat causing culprits, which include: wheat bread, bran, beans, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, onions, artichokes, and asparagus. I wouldn’t cut these out of your diet entirely because they have other good health benefits, but if you notice excessive bloating then try cutting these foods down or out of your diet and see if you can notice a difference.
  9. No more soda – carbonation and sugar make more than the beverage bubble up, cut out the soda to cut out the belly bloat.
  10. Slow down – not only will this improve digestion, but you’ll enjoy your food more, and probably feel fuller faster than if you shovelled your meal down, which means consuming less calories.
  11. Hold the spice – herbs and spices are great ways to add flavour to a dish, but hot spices can trigger stomach acid to release, which will result in bloating.
A lot of these are general health tips, but there are a few that zone in on a magical (not so magical) overnight process that your body performs. This also gets at a great point for maintaining a healthy lifestyle: it’s one day at a time, slow and steady, if you get off track then tomorrow is another day and you can go back to these basic health guidelines to wake up thinner the next day.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. 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 2-3 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. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

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.
