15 Foods You Should Eat If You Want To Lose Weight

July 08, 2015 2 min read

Eating less does not necessarily translate into weight loss. Try loading up your plate with fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds. These foods will help your metabolism and help you stay satiated enough to not over eat. Here are some foods to try tonight:

1. Peanut Butter

Peanut butter is digested slowly and releases sugar gradually into the blood stream meaning it can provide lasting energy while reducing sugar cravings.

2. Apples

Apples have pectin. Pectin limits the amount of fat your cells can absorb.

3. Red Wine

Although it is high in calories, an occasional glass can be good for you. It appears grape seeds contain substances that can assist in weight loss.

4. Green Tea

Green tea extract can boost metabolism and may aid weight loss. It also releases energy from glucose in the food we eat, which in turn helps to burn fat.

5. Grapefruit

It is believed that grapefruit can help reduce insulin levels which prevents fat storage and promotes weight loss.

6. Broccoli

Studies have linked calcium and weight loss. Broccoli is high in calcium and vitamin C which helps with calcium absorption.

7. Quinoa

Quinoa is a complete protein. Protein helps boost metabolism, burn fat and build lean muscle which will help you burn even more calories.

8. Oats

Oats are a good source of fat soluble fiber that helps you feel full and boosts your metabolism.

9. Barley

Another great source of soluble fiber.

10. Garlic

Garlic contains allicin which has a protective quality and helps cells reduce fatty deposits.

11. Blueberries

A great source of vitamin C. Vitamin C has been shown essential in weight loss. Also, the catechins found in blueberries activate fat burning genes in abdominal fat cells. That can't be a bad thing.

12. Walnuts

Research has shown that 30g of walnuts a day improves the cholesterol profile of patients with type 2 diabetes and reduces the risk of obesity.

13. Asparagus

Asparagus contains the chemical asparagine which affects the body's cells and breaks down fat. It also has a chemical that helps remove waste from the body which also serves to reduce fat.

14. Water

A new study from Germany found that subjects of the study increased their metabolic rate (the rate at which calories are burned) by 30 percent after drinking approximately 17 ounces of water. Drinking water also keeps you from mistaking thirst for hunger.

15. Cantaloupe

This melon is extremely nutritionally dense which helps you feel satisfied and full. It is also high in fiber and water which fill the stomach but are easily eliminated. Good thing I love all these foods. How about you? For a more comprehensive list, check out this page.

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.

Clothing

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.
