Ask Stacey: are boring meals better for your weight?

August 29, 2013 2 min read

The topic of this post was spawned from the email exchange below: Hi Stacey, Thank you for the coaching and support. I am really excited to see that our efforts are paying off and those ten pounds really make a difference in my clothes. I can't wait to see what I will look like when those last ten come off! The last meal plan you gave me is great and easy to follow but I feel like I'm basically eating the same thing over and over again. Is it okay for me to try some new foods?  Thanks, Emily S. Great question, Emily! Are you saying you're getting bored with your selections? :) First, I am happy to see that the training program is working. Clearly  you are working just as hard outside of our meeting times which is really important for achieving the results you want. To answer your question, variety is the spice of life and can be incorporated into your meal plan in, well, a varietyof ways For example, you can try new ways of preparing foods along with new spices in that preparation. Sauteing, steaming, broiling and braising are forms of cooking that add and preserve moisture while baking, roasting and grilling are good dry cooking methods. All require little to no added fat and dry methods can actually reduce fat in the cooking process. It is a good idea to have a few healthy favorites in mind for each meal of the day. These foods should be similar to each other in terms of calorie count and nutrient quality.  Once you have that basic foundation, you can be adventurous  and add new foods as garnishes to your basic meal. The adage "eat the rainbow" is ideal but portion size is key. Eating a wide variety of natural foods allows you to benefit from ALL the vitamins and nutrients nature has to offer you but eating too much of anything is never a good idea.

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.
