Best And Worst Things To Drink When Trying To Lose Weight

August 06, 2015 2 min read

Alcohol is full of empty calories! But there are some that are jam packed, and others that are the better choice when drinking! Obviously, not drinking is the best option - but that wouldn't be any fun, would it?!?

THE BEST

1) Wine

This makes me happy! Wine is a good choice when trying to lose weight. On average, there are 100-120 calories in each standard glass of wine. There is a small difference between red and white wine. Red is high in antioxidants and the ellargic acids aids in delay the growth of fat cells. While white wine is lower in carbohydrates, which means fewer calories than red wine.

2) Vermouth

This is a fortified wine that has a little bit of a higher alcohol content than wine. There are only 64 calories for every 1.5 ounces! This little is a little hidden secret!

3) Straight liquor

Getting the most bang for your buck, while trying to keep the calories down? Straight liquor on the rocks or in shots is the best way to go! Be careful though, when you start to go into the flavoured vodka or spiced rums, the calorie count (and sugar content) increases! Scotch on the rocks is always a safe choice.

4) Light Beer

There are some beers now that only have 55-65 calories per bottle! A great way to enjoy a refreshing pint without going overboard. But just because they are low in calories doesn't mean it's an open door to drink more than you normally would!

THE WORST

1) Sugar packed sweet drinks

Daiquiris, Long Island Iced Teas, sugary martinis! They may be tasty but they pack more calories than you will ever know. Your body is too busy trying to deal with the alcohol that it doesn't metabolize the high sugars in the drink. So be careful, a few are okay but don't go crazy!

2) Beer

Light beer is a good thing but the heavy, high alcohol craft beers is loaded with calories! They may be tasty and refreshing but they aren't helping you lose weight!

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.
