14 Day Diet Challenge #2

December 04, 2013 2 min read

This diet challenge has definitely gotten much easier as the days go by.  I've gotten much more used to eating five times a day and I have noticed that if I don't eat every three hours I start to get a little lightheaded and definitely hungry.  The food is amazing, and surprisingly it doesn't cost any more than it would to eat what I have normally.  The biggest change is not having any starch in the last two meals of the day.  What has been great is that I don't go to bed bloated at all. Days 5-10 are up: Day 5: Meal 1: pumpkin parfait, Meal 2: shrimp stir-fry, Meal 3: Fiesta Salad, Meal 4: Pork and veggies (at my parents house, cauliflower).  I had a glass of wine as well. Day 6:  Meal 1: French toast, Meal 2: tilapia tacos, Meal 3: Salad with turkey, Meal 4: Shrimp Stir-fry. Day 7: Repeat of day 6. Day 8:  Meal 1: Pumpkin parfait, Meal 2: greek yogurt and cucumber salad, Meal 3: fiesta salad, Meal 4: Turkey and Brussels sprouts Day 9: Thanksgiving  Meal 1: Quinoa porridge, Meal 2: fiesta salad, Thanksgiving Dinner at 4pm Day 10: Meal 1: Quinoa porridge, Meal 2: Apple Butternut Squash Soup, Meal 3: Salad with turkey, Meal 4: Turkey and Brussels Sprouts   Last week I ended up getting a question about the approach that the Nutrition Guide takes to nutrition and calories.  What's great about the nutrition guide is that it isn't focused in any sense on food deprivation or calorie counting.  There are two meal plans set up, the 1500 calorie meal plan and the 1800 meal plan.  The meal plans are based on weight and if you are looking to gain weight or loose it. I have made a big decision however, I'm not going to stop after I complete the 14 days.  As a short term goal I am going to go through a complete month so I can get a better idea of my progress.  Also I've got a big big big event to go to with my husband on the 10th...and I have to look great in my dress. :) I highly highly recommend the Nutrition Guide if anything just for the recipes and the clear idea of what your intake on vegetables, starches, and protein needs to be.

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 4-6 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.

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
