5 Foods That Cause You to Break Out

June 18, 2015 1 min read

Ah, the dreaded break out. Those pesky skin blemishes always seem to pop up at the worst times. Got a hot date tonight? Or your best friend's wedding is tomorrow? Our faces are masters at picking the not so perfect pimple timing. Acne can be caused by a number of factors including stress and hormonal fluctuations, but research shows some foods in your diet could also be to blame. Here are the top 5 acne causing culinary culprits. 1) Milk Milk is full of hormones which can cause skin to react. A study conducted in Malaysia found participants who consumed milk were 4 times more likely to break out. 2) Tofu   Looks like your favourite tofurky burger may be to blame for bouts of acne. Tofu is made from soy which can cause long-lasting break outs on your skin. 3) Pizza   A slice of pizza is loaded with high-GI carbs and cheesy dairy. This is a dangerous combo for your skin. 4) Edamame    But wait! Isn't this delicious little snack healthy for you? It is generally healthy, but it has a high soy content. Phytoestrogens, found in many high soy foods, cause hormonal havoc that can lead to pimples. 5) Cookies   Mmm...cookies! Baked with love, sugar, dairy and refined carbs. These ingredients pose a triple threat to clear skin! Got any blemish horror stories for us? Which of these foods would be the hardest to give up?

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.


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.
