The 6 Sneaky Things That Are Making You Fat

July 22, 2015 2 min read

If you're wondering why you're diet and exercise plan is failing you, here are the 6 hidden culprits that could be causing you to pack on fat. #1 You Have Bad Gut Bacteria   Cravings can be caused by bacteria lurking in your gut. If the bacteria in your gut is used to eating, say, greasy fast food - it will automatically work against you when you change your diet to healthier foods. As long as you stave off those cravings, your bacterial populations will settle down and your body will adjust to your diet change. #2 You're Becoming Your Parents It can be hard to fight off habits that we were raised with, especially when it comes to eating and fitness. These habits can also be genetic. By maintaining a healthy lifestyle can actually cause a shift in genetic behaviour and no allow certain genes to be inherited by the next generation. #3 You're Running On Information Overload   There are countless blogs, vlogs, articles and studies out there on nutrition. But not all interweb information is created equal. Keep your diet simple, and make sensical choices. Little things like drinking more water, cutting out processed foods and eating more greens can help you lose weight. #4 You Haven't Done Any Research Your problem may be the opposite to #3, you're going on hear-say and theories without looking into them. Drinking beer all the time because you heard from a friend it's nutrient rich? Maybe look into it, and also assess whether you feel healthier and slimmer after 3 pints. #5 You Have No Structure Planning meals and getting into a steady workout routine are key. Soon you body will fall in line and crave certain healthy foods and that morning cardio burn. #6 You Eat Like Other People   If your BFF can pound back chicken wings, beer and cake at dinner and still have a flat stomach, why can't you? The truth is, no body is the same and everyone metabolizes food differently. It's important to only model your eating habits and exercise regime around yourself. Can you identify with any of these habits? Share your thoughts with us!

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.

Clothing

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.
