8 Weight Loss Tips That Are A Waste Of Your Time

July 01, 2015 2 min read

Have you ever noticed that when you are trying to lose weight, everyone has a miracle, go to, solution? The thing is, most of them don't actually work. Here are list of no fail solutions you should skip right on by so you can attain your amazing bod the healthy way!

1. Adopt A Gluten Free Diet

If you have a gluten intolerance, ignore me on this one. If you are going gluten free to lose weight, you'll likely be disappointed. Ever checked out the calorie count on some gluten free products? Yeah, I don't need to say more.

2. Skip Meals

Skipping meals may actually increase belly fat. It is better to spread your meals and caloric intake over the course of the day so you can keep your insulin levels steady and your metabolism functioning properly.

3. Cut out all "unhealthy" foods

It is wise to limit your intake of unhealthy foods but going all crazy restrictive is likely to work against you. You will probably feel deprived which can lead to binge eating. Unless ordered by a medical professional, cutting out entire food groups is just not a sustainable way to diet.

4. Drink lots and lots of juice

Drink your green juice for a snack but remember that going on an all liquid diet can deprive your body of essential nutrients.

5. Cook all your meals

Remember, you need to make sure your diet is sustainable. So, cooking your meals at home provides you with more control of ingredients but depending on your lifestyle, it may not be reasonable to rely on this trick alone. You will eventually need to dine out.

6. Only indulge on cheat days

Have a cheat meal instead of a cheat day. It prevents you from eating an entire week's worth of indulgences in one day. If you allow yourself to give in once in a while, you'll be less likely to snap completely .

7. Eat low fat versions of food

DO NOT let fancy looking, healthy sounding packaging prevent you from reading nutrition labels and ingredient lists. Their products are often loaded with sugar.

8. Follow popular diet plans

If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. You should be aiming for something realistic and sustainable. Basically, at the end of the day, you need to find what is going to work for you and what can work long term. What sorts of things have you done for weight loss? What failed and what worked for you?

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.
