Diet Guru's Banana Regimen

April 17, 2014 1 min read

Australian youtube diet guru “Freelee the Banana Girl” promotes her high-carb, low fat, raw vegan (before 4pm), mono-meal diet. Mono-meals are eating a lot of the same food – 21 bananas for example. You can watch her eat 51 bananas in a day, here: That bloat is a bit extreme, but honestly it’s not much worse than a burrito baby. She claims that this diet helped her lose 40lbs, cleared up her acne, and improved digestion. Whether it works for you is a different question entirely. [caption id="attachment_46146" align="alignnone" width="638"]I'd be happy being her before photo I'd be happy being her before photo[/caption] Based on traditional health advice, here are some positives of the diet: raw rather than cooked vegetables and fruit retain more vitamins and minerals, and promoting home cooked food rather than processed food. Of course there are also the negatives of the diet, that you should keep in mind: limited sources of B12, calcium, and iron, very high sugar and carb content, and not enough fat content. Variety, portion control, and moderation are generally the cornerstones of traditional healthy eating advice, and this diet ignores all of these. bananagirl3 A lot of dieticians have pointed out the dangers in this kind of diet, especially when a fellow Australian followed the diet while pregnant. I maintain that you should do what works for your body – eating a sea of fruit works for Freelee, so power to her, as extreme as it may seem, and I hope she doesn’t have negative consequences in the future.

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.
