When you make a real commitment to changing your eating habits, it should only take a matter of days before your body starts to show you some changes. But, if you aren't noticing changes, it may be time to troubleshot. The majority of the time, your problem will be something simple to correct. Ask yourself the following questions to get the ball, and your fat loss, rolling. Are you:

1. Eating too much fruit?

Fruit is high in fructose. While you should be eating some fruit, eating too much could cause trouble with your insulin levels. A perfect serving size is a handful of berries or chopped fruit, or half of a larger piece of fruit like a grapefruit or an apple.

2. Eating too many nuts?

Nuts are great snacks when on a diet because of their protein and healthy fat content but it is important to eat them in moderation. A closed handful should be enough.

3. Keeping foods on the "no" list in your kitchen?

Don't keep chips, cookies or your favourite high-carb treats on hand. They will only tempt you to cheat. Donate them or throw them away. weight loss

4. Skipping the fat?

All fats are not created equal. If you include the right amounts of healthy fats in your diet, it can actually help you lose weight!

5. Eating too much healthy fat?

It is true, you can have too much of a good thing. If your healthy fat is in liquid form, your serving should be roughly the size of a ping-pong ball which is around 1 tablespoon. When your healthy fat is in the form of nuts, coconut flakes, olives or seeds, your serving should be the size of a closed handful. If you are adding avocado to your meal, your serving is a quarter to a half of the avocado. A serving of coconut milk is a third to a half of a can. Every meal should include 1 to 2 servings of fat!

6. Not measuring your other foods properly?

Remember this: don't overdo proteins and don't rip yourself off when it comes to non-starchy vegetables. For your proteins: A serving of meat, fish, or poultry should be about the size and thickness of your palm. A serving of eggs should be as many as you can hold in your hand. Usually 2-3 for women and 3-4 for men. You can double this serving size if you are eating egg whites only. Every meal should include a protein. For your non-starchy veggies: A serving of these should be at least the size of a softball. You can't eat too many. Load your plate with a couple of softball size portions. For your starchy veggies: A serving of starchy vegetables should be the size of a baseball for women and a softball for men. Remember, only eat starchy vegetables if you are recovering from a workout or feel tired and weak. For your fruit portions: A fruit serving is half a piece like in the case of apples and oranges or it is a tennis ball size serving of berries, grapes or tropical fruits. If the fruit is diced, that's equivalent to  a closed fistful or a half cup. Eat no more than 2 servings of fruit a day and spread them out between your meals and snacks to keep your sugar levels in check.

7. Not completely letting go? 

Hanging on to that food or drink that you just can't say no to is only going to impede your fat loss. Don't be afraid to ditch it completely. Does this sound like the perfect troubleshooting guide for your diet? After troubleshooting these problems, if you still feel like you need some help, have a look at the BodyRock Meal Plan.

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 4-6 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.
