How to Become a "Normal" Eater

May 13, 2015 2 min read

Stress or boredom eating is one of the worst saboteurs when it comes to trying to live a healthy lifestyle. Becoming a “normal” eater is all about getting back in touch with your body's basics of when you need to eat vs. using it as a crutch. Here are a few steps to get you started on your journey:

For 3 Days, Only Eat When You're Actually Hungry

Challenge yourself to eat only when your body is actually telling you to. More often that not, our bodies are so used to eating at certain “meal times” that we ignore our hunger cues. For 3 days, experiment with only eating when you're pretty sure you feel true hunger.

Try Eating Something You've Deemed "Off Limits"

How many foods have you forbid yourself from eating - only to find they start to develop a strange power over us. It’s impossible to feel normal around food when there's a constant battle between what you want to eat and what you "should" eat.  So now what? Why not try keeping your favourite chocolate in your bag and only if you REALLY want it, allow yourself a piece. Allowing this food back into your life lets you see that nothing horrible happens when you enjoy it, within moderation. Eventually, this food will stop being on a pedestal and lose it's control over you.

Pay Attention To Your Body

What food satisfies you? What food give you energy? And most importantly - what foods leave you feeling empty or uncomfortable? If you’re constantly looking for something else to eat after your daily lunch, consider whether that choice of food is really satisfying you. Learn what types of foods make you thrive and which don't. No diet can give you this information; it can only come from your paying attention to yourself!

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.
