Bottled Water is as Fattening as Soda

December 08, 2013 2 min read

“Bottled water is as fattening as sugary soda.” But how can bottled water be fattening if it contains 0 calories, and no ingredients except water? The problem lies in the PLASTIC bottle itself.

You see, plastic bottles leach a chemical called Bisphenol A —or BPA— in the liquid it contains. In the last years, BPA has been identified as a toxin that can mimic your estrogen. What happens when this plastic enters your body is that it stimulates your estrogen production in an artificial way.

plastic water bottles


• Low testosterone levels (in men, but also women which also need it) • Fat gain and increased size of your fat cells • Excessive menopausal symptoms for women over 40 • Water retention • Bloating • The longer your water bottle is exposed to sun, manipulation and air, the more BPA leaches into your water Keep that in mind when you realize that bottled water wasn't bottled last week. It was bottled months ago. If you're drinking Evian, that's shipped from France. I'll let you think about how long that was bottled.

... But that’s not the worst part

Now that BPA has been identified as a problematic chemical, many manufacturers now offer BPA-free plastics. The “funny” thing is... in those BPA-free bottles, BPA has been replaced by Bisphenol S —or BPS— which basically shows the same Estrogenic Activity.

In other words, no plastic is completely safe for use, and can potentially affect your estrogen hormone and slow your weight loss down.


• Use a stainless steel or glass bottle instead of plastic • Use glass or stainless steel containers to store food • Remove plastic from your kitchen as much as possible

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.
