3 Simple Ways to Change Your Relationship with Food

May 04, 2016 2 min read

At BodyRock, we know that changing your diet is not as easy as a half-weight Deadlift. We've all been through it...tossing out hidden Kit-Kats from your sock drawer, saying "no" to extra Crunch Berries on your Cap'n Crunch. Our bad eating habits have become rituals...like peeing in the shower or chewing the end of our braids. We have news for you: you CAN release yourself from your carefully crafted mental pathways. What's more, you won't think twice about the foods you used to eat. You'll sniff once at a plate of glistening pastries and thumb your nose, like Rihanna at a Beyoncé-centric awards ceremony. We simply do not consider what we're putting into our bodies. In a recent survey, we discovered a third of our sampling spell "food" with a "u"! Here are 3 easy ways you can adjust your thinking TODAY around how you stuff your face:

1. Sit at that flat thing in your house that has all your unopened mail on it.

Simply sitting at the....um....table (we think it's pronounced "tab-leh") can dramatically change how you consume your meals. A recent study by the Harvard Medical School reveals that there's a link between weight gain and eating dinner in front of a screen. Our devices distract us from chewing properly and knowing when we're full. Try putting that $%*# away for just 20 minutes a night. Sure it might be boring af for the first few minutes, but that's only because your internal monologue (um...or your ability to relate to other humans) is rusty. Best of all, you'll be thinking about...you guessed it: fud. Gah! We mean: food.

2. Pack food into several little containers and open them when you're hungry.

It's like an advent calendar that just gives and gives all day long! It's like a surprise birthday present every day of the year! It's astonishing how many people say they pack their lunch, but when it comes down to it they use the "grabbing lunch" excuse to stand in line and check their Tinder matches. Don't be that guy! Making yourself a healthy meal in the evening and bringing leftovers to work will remind you of your school days. Be your own Mom! Or, even easier, let Lisa nurture you on your nutrition journey, by trying out try our unique BodyRock Meal Plan.

3. Shop with a list of ingredients and follow guidelines when you cook.

We hear these are called recipes. You'd be surprised how few people use 'em. Think about it: when was the last time you looked up a recipe and created a shopping list? Far too often we slap a couple of sweaty cheese slices between two pieces of white bread and fry that sucker on the ol' Teflon. Follow a recipe just one night a week and find that you actually enjoy thinking about food for part of your day! Want more recipes and an excellent shopping list?

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.

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.
