5 Diet Mistakes Women Often Make That Prevent Weight Loss

October 14, 2015 2 min read

If you are a woman trying to lose weight, you are far from alone. Sometimes all the hard work seems to go nowhere. You try and you try and yet the weight refuses to budge! But don't worry, those hours at the gym are not really a waste. You are likely just guilty of one of the following mistakes. A few slight adjustments and you could be seeing the results you desire!

1. Eating Less

Getting fit cannot be achieved by eating less. In fact, it can do the opposite. In order to be healthy, you should be eating a MINIMUM of three, nutritious, meals a day. Skipping meals can make you feel drained, kick your body into survival mode causing it to hold on to fat, and even lead you to overeat at the end of the day.

2. Prioritizing The Number

If you spend too much time thinking about the number on the scale, you will be ignoring your overall fitness. Exercise and eating properly are the keys here. In order to lose weight, you need to burn fat over muscle -- the scale doesn't know the difference. Think about how you feel. Are you more energized? Does your body look more toned? Those are the results you want.

3. Crash Diets

Crash diets seem like a great shortcut at first. They give you results right out the gate but do they really work? Nope. Crash diets can lead to a loss in muscle tissue which is required for fat burning. So while you might lose weight, you will end up with a flabby body and a slow metabolism. And the worst part is, when you stop the diet, the weight will come back. bodyalwayswanted

4. Weight Loss Pills

Weight loss pills are a fad, but like crash diets, women flock to them in crazy large numbers. There are many categories of pills on the market and the truth is, none of them have any real impact on your weight loss. In fact, these pills contain chemicals that may screw up your entire system. It is best to avoid them at all costs.

5. Skipping The Strength Training

Diet and exercise work together when it comes to weight loss. But the exercise can't just be straight cardio. Strength training can increase your metabolism and lead to a greater number of burned calories. It also helps you to build muscle and the more muscle you have, the more effective you will be at burning fat. For more diet mistakes, head here. Are you guilty of any of these mistakes? Have you been guilty in the past? How did you make the necessary changes to get results? Source: WTBX FM

Shipping & Delivery

Fast, Express Shipping.

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. 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 4-5 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. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

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.
