3 substitutions for carb lovers

August 19, 2013 2 min read

Say it with me: You NEED carbs. Yes, you heard right: YOU NEED CARBOHYDRATES! Except that when people talk about carbs they are often  referring to "junk carbs" made of processed grains in breads and baked goods, rice, and white starches. Those you can do without because they hold no natural nutritional value and spike blood sugar dramatically. However, everyone needs healthy carbs for natural energy production and brain function; this is especially true if you exercise intensely and/or regularly. You like bread...um, hello, who doesn't? bread is delicious!Bread is a trigger food for most. Save pitas and wraps for especially active days. Try: baked sweet potato.  You can put anything on a baked sweet potato and it will taste awesome- low fat tuna salad, mayo-free egg salad, scrambled egg whites and sardines are 4 of my favorites.  Make sure the sweet potato you choose is 4 oz or less per serving. You eat rice- There is nothing inherently wrong with rice; it is a grain after all but things get weird when it's been processed and blanched to white. At that point it has been stripped of all its good stuff and offers a big sugar rush that it can cause long term problems with regular consumption( hello, type 2 diabetes!) Try: cruciferous vegetables.Your less bloated self will thank me if you switch your rice habit for some steamed cauliflower and broccoli. Again, save brown rice and quinoa for especially active days and keep it to a half a cup or less per serving. You miss flour...see #1. Try: Egg whites.The incredible, edible egg white is very  versatile and can be whipped into anything to simulate a baked dessert or breakfast food. Not to mention that almond and coconut flour can also be added to give you the chewy mouthfeel you crave. *Be sure to add plenty of moisture when using either flour as they tend to soak up all liquids.

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.
