9 Filling Foods For Weight Loss

July 08, 2014 3 min read

1. Melon

Cantaloupe, honeydew and watermelon are called high volume foods because they are high in fiber and water content (90%!) and low in calories. Melon is the perfect summer snack for boosting hydration and satisfying your sweet tooth.

2. Almonds

The NHANES  program of studies showed that those who tend to eat the most nuts tend to have the lowest BMI. Research continues to demonstrate that fats like those found in almonds are highly satiating  and can help support weight loss efforts. Almonds are a low-calorie nut choice and a great snack option for that much needed afternoon pick-me-up. If you are nut averse and want to ease your way into them, there are a variety of flavors to get you started (my favorite is the cocoa-dusted) and many brands now offer single serve packs that are great for snacking.

3. Squashzucchini

Another high volume food, squash (butternut, spaghetti, acorn, pumpkin, zucchini, etc)  is an excellent comfort food choice that provides that heartiness we all crave from time to time. Spaghetti squash is an excellent pasta replacement and reduces your carbohydrate intake from 43 grams to 7 grams in just one serving. Zucchini can be the perfect pasta replacement in lasagna dishes (with the help of a mandolin) and is also great grilled.

4. Cottage Cheese

A favorite snack among the fitness elite, one cup of cottage cheese provides approximately 30 grams of protein.  This supports muscle protein synthesis and helps preserve muscle mass during weight loss. A highly versatile food,  you can opt to mix in berries, add to your salad or season and eat alone.

5. Oats

A popular breakfast item, (I'm not talking the sugar-laden instant packets though) oatmeal is a great source of fiber and protein and provides that long-winded comfortable fullness we all need to start our day off on the right foot.

6. Jerky

Grab a pack of jerky at the 7-11 instead of those empty carb snacks and you will be delighted in your snack actually doing its job and getting you to your next meal instead of kicking off your next food frenzy.

7. Coconut

Have you ever noticed how long it takes to eat a chunk of raw coconut? This is serious jaw exercise!  Not only does coconut provide filling, healthy fats in our diet, but it also has anti-viral and anti-microbial properties to boost immunity. Add unsweetened coconut to yogurt or oatmeal, or make your own healthy trail mix by mixing in nuts and seeds. 

8. Avocado

High in monounsaturated fats and dietary fiber, adding avocado to your salad can boost nutrient absorption, provide that much appreciated fill power and can help optimize cholesterol levels.

9. Applesapple

Apples are high in soluble fiber and nutrients and is great for regulating blood sugar. Pair it with nut butter and you have the perfect afternoon snack or breakfast staple. When you keep a focus on fill power foods when hunger strikes, you will automatically reduce your ride on  the cravings/energy roller coaster that empty carb and high sugar snacks force you on. These foods help support weight loss goals by helping you stay in control and promoting fullness in quality, not quantity.   Eat with purpose. xo, Lonni   Have you seen our fitness videos?

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.
