5 Ways You Can Eat More And Still Lose Weight

September 11, 2015 3 min read

How often has it happened to you? You've started a diet, you've managed to avoid all the foods that tempt you when BANG! you're neck deep in a cheesecake? Sometimes, the slip can happen that suddenly, or at least it feels like it can. But the key to diet success isn't about completely cutting out the foods you love, it is about eating more of the foods your body needs! Load up on healthy, nutrient dense foods and then you'll have space to moderately enjoy the foods you love. Here are 5 ways to eat MORE food while still dropping weight:

Load Up On Fiber

Fiber and weight loss are a match made in heaven. Studies have suggested that high fiber foods require you to chew more which means you are eating more slowly, giving your brain more time to register that your stomach is becoming full. Fiber is also good for helping your body digest food, absorb sugar more slowly and feel satiated, longer. Boost your fiber by adding fresh fruit to your breakfast, a cup of veggies to your sandwich at lunch and at least two veggies to your dinner. You'll thank us later.

Make Water Rich Foods Your Go Tos

  You know by now that staying hydrated is important to your overall health so do yourself a favour by adding foods like watermelon, cucumber, zucchini, strawberries, cantaloupe, broccoli, and even yogurt. Remember, thirst can often be mistaken for hunger. What's even better? These foods are also low in calories! Eat your heart out!

Eat Breakfast Like A Boss

Eating breakfast is a great way to keep a lid on the hunger hormone, ghrelin. This means, eating breakfast can go a long way to prevent feeling starving at mid day. Breakfast also kick starts the metabolism and signals your body that it is okay to start burning calories. And there is lots of research out there that suggests eating eggs, or another high protein breakfast, can help you eat fewer calories during the course of the day!

Snack Your Butt Off

Eating often can help keep your hunger at bay. Research has shown that people who eat four meals a day, lose more weight. If you eat more frequently throughout the day, you'll be less likely to gorge at meal time. If you aren't famished at dinner, for example, you're more likely to make better food choices and eat more slowly which will give your body a chance to realize that it is satisfied. Whatever you choose for a snack, try to make sure it contains roughly 200 calories, three grams of fiber, seven grams of protein, and six grams of healthy fat.

Get Your Night Time Snack On

  If done properly, night time snacking can actually be a benefit to your weightloss. Snacking on cherries or Greek yogurt, for example, might actually help you get more sleep as both contain sleep inducing chemicals. Many studies have linked getting enough sleep to eating less the next day and improved metabolic functioning. Yogurt also contains casein which will help your muscles faster if you've had a really tough workout. Smart night time snacks are clearly beneficial! This is all wonderful news for dieters! Spinach and strawberries are my go-tos. Which healthy, nutrient rich foods do you use to help keep your weight loss on track? Source: Women's Health

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.
