8 Drinks That Are Making You Fat

December 04, 2015 3 min read

When it comes to tracking calories, people don't always remember to include the things they are drinking. Up to one fifth of the calories you are consuming on a daily basis comes from beverages. That's a pretty scary number that can add up quickly if you aren't paying attention! Recent stats have suggested that people are consuming up to 2500 calories by drinking fruit juice or sodas at meal time. Insane! So, if you're eating clean and hitting the gym but still not losing weight, it may be time to take a look at what you are drinking. Below are 8 beverages that could be playing a role in your inability to lose weight. By swapping them out for water, you'll notice a difference in no time at all!

1. Coffee

Do you find yourself mixing things up by ordering an iced or frozen coffee beverage? Well, we've got bad news. These cold coffee drinks are often loaded with sugar and cream and can cost you around 900 calories. Not helpful when trying to lose weight!

2. Milk

While recommended for consumption due to its nutrient content, milk also contains a large amount of saturated fat. So, if you find yourself chugging milk first thing in the morning, you may want to dial it back.

3. Processed Drinks

Processed juices are so far from being natural that it isn't even funny! They are full of sugar and artificial sweeteners that boost the calorie content sky-high. Processed juices often contain only 3% fruit! Yikes!

4. Energy Drinks

Energy drinks are NOT good for you. They are packed with sugar and caffeine that ramps up your body and puts it through the wringer. They have also been linked to the activation of cancer cells. [bctt tweet="8 Drinks That Are Making You Fat"]

5. Beer

You were probably expecting this one on the list. One bottle of beer can run you about 120 calories. Beer is full of carbohydrates and has very little to offer in the way of nutrition. When looking to lose weight, it is best to steer clear.

6. Soda

Another one you probably expected. The downsides to soda cannot be stressed enough! Regular sodas are loaded with sugar and the available diet options are full of sodium and artificial sweeteners that only contribute to weight gain. What's more, soda erodes the enamel on your teeth and can even start to dissolve them!

7. Shakes

While they may seem healthy, shakes can contain a lot of ingredients which makes it difficult to control calorie counts. Think about it, if you aren't supposed to eat piles of dairy and fruit in one sitting, what makes it okay to do when they are blended together?

8. Sports Drinks

Sports drinks claim to replenish your body with what it lost during the workout. The problem is, the majority of us are not working out nearly hard enough to require their assistance. So really, they are a sugar and carbohydrate trap. Your best bet, post-workout is water. If you really think you need to help your electrolytes along, try water with a pinch of sea salt and a squeeze of lemon. Do you think some of these drinks may be making it harder for you to lose weight? Don't be shy, tell us about it! Source: Bold Sky

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.

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.
