4 Foods To Help You Achieve That Flat Stomach and Why

May 27, 2015 2 min read

There are three main ingredients your diet must have to successfully win the battle against belly fat: proteins, antioxidants and fiber. Proteins help normalize your metabolism, fiber contributes in reducing bloat and keeping you regular, while antioxidants add in an extra kick that makes your ab exercises effective enough to really solve the problem. There aren’t many foods that combine these three main ingredients, but here is a list of the best of them.   1. Apples:  Apples are known to contain large amounts of the compound quercetin, which has been proven to help fight the progress of various forms of cancer. Apples contain about 5% fiber and 85% water, and therefore can help you feel fuller than other snacks would. Keeping yourself fuller on less food is a great strategy to aid in weight loss. 2. Berries: Berries are the little powerhouses of all fruits. They are full of fiber, which acts as a wall between your body and broken down foods that could make you pack on the weight. It traps food particles and pulls them away from the digestive tract before digestion can begin. Besides aiding in weight loss, berries are rich in antioxidants, which promote blood flow especially during workouts and can increase performance. So berries are also great for those of us who workout. 3. Spinach: Spinach is great for us workout junkies - it contains a lot of calcium, which helps us with more muscle contractions and thus more results in the gym. 4. Eggs: Eggs are filled with protein and healthy fats that keep you feeling full throughout the day, so you're less likely to binge on the junk. There have been studies that prove people who ate eggs for breakfast had fewer hunger pangs than those who ate complex carbohydrates or flour-based foods. So there you have it. Keep on bodyrocking and add these 4 foods to your daily diet.

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

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.
