8 Tricks To Stop Overeating

May 12, 2015 2 min read

Does your body only put the brakes on food once you can't seem to force another bite down - then you do anyway because it's so delicious? Does the word "full" generally mean "stuffed" for you? You're not alone. More often than not, people continue to eat even after your body has given you signs of the red light.  Try these 8 tricks and before you know it, overeating is going to be overrated in no time.

8 Tricks To Stop Overeating

1. Chew more slowly.

 Slowing down the entire process actually allows you to pay more attention to how much you’re consuming. Not to mention, you can savour each bite and enjoy the flavours of your meal better.

2. Eat foods loaded with fibre, protein and healthy fats

They will keep you fuller for longer!

3. Drink lots of water.

A lot of the time we mistake thirst for hunger and end up eating a ton to make up for dehydration. Next time you're "hungry", try some water first. 

4. Stop eating when you feel full.

This is one of the hardest (although simple in theory), but the next time you feel full, just put down your fork.

5. Use small or medium sized plates to manage portions

For some of us, quantity is everything. This will trick your brain in to thinking you have a plate full of food when you're actually controlling your portions.

6. Serve food straight from the pan to the plate 

By removing serving plates at the table you remove the temptation to have more helpings.

7. Cut your food into smaller pieces.

This is another way to trick your mind into thinking you are consuming more.

8. Get enough rest.

You should be getting between seven to nine hours sleep a night as any less will cause you to eat more. Insufficient sleep will lower levels of leptin and increase ghrelin levels in our body. Leptin is the hormone which tells us when we are full whilst ghrelin is the hormone that signals the body to eat.

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.

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.
