Ditching Diets Was The Key To Her 85 Pound Weight Loss Transformation!

November 27, 2015 2 min read

Kristi Youngdahl weighed 198 pounds when she decided she'd had enough. Looking for quick results, she did what many of us do and put herself on an odd, crash diet. After a trip to the hospital, she put a stop to that plan. Having spent months eating cereal for breakfast and lunch, with a diet frozen meal for dinner, Kristi found herself at the hospital with heart palpitations. The doctors explained that her body was not able to handle what she was doing to it.

Time for Plan B

When the cereal diet failed, Kristi took a different path.  “I got Tosca’s book and I cleaned out my kitchen cabinets," she says. Kristi knew that building muscle would be incredible beneficial and so she found herself a trainer who helped her learn how to work out. “I was discovering the ‘me’ I was missing and an entirely different woman I had never met before. I felt so empowered," she says. Kristi finds herself creating interesting new dishes that she cooks up with her kids, like chicken asparagus hash browns, taco meatballs and her special chocolate pumpkin protein bars. “I love turning unclean recipes into healthy ones," she explains. While not every meal experiment is a success, she says the process is still a lot of fun. Kristi-Youngdahl Now weighing an amazing 113 pounds, Kristi participates in fitness competitions and has even run a half marathon. Working as a personal trainer, she hopes her journey can inspire others. Losing weight isn't about a diet, it is about a complete lifestyle!

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 1-2 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 (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 1-2 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system

If you are not home when your package is delivered, BodyRock is NOT responsible if it is stolen. Please contact us if this happens to you and we will provide you with all the information needed to take the next steps.
Returns & Exchanges

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.
