Eat Your Way to a Flat Tummy (Part 1)

April 07, 2015 2 min read

There’s more to eating than the food you put in your mouth. The digestive process is truly holistic and quite delicate at that. Simply put, if we are not properly digesting what we put in our body, whether it be food or even supplements, then what is the point in eating to begin with? You may only be absorbing a small percentage of what you actually consume. Seems wasteful doesn’t it? You might be surprised about the elements that have a practical impact on the way your body utilizes foods. Don’t drink with your meal This is a tough one, but try your best… Consuming liquids with food dilutes the digestive juices that are needed to break it down. Drink your liquids a half hour before or after meals. Also, if you are going to drink water, let it be at room temperature, for the least negative impact on digestion. Leave the tension at the door According to a Roman proverb, the secret to healing is ‘Dr. Diet, Dr. Quiet and Dr. Happy.’ If you eat when you are nervous or tense, your stress hormones cause the body to produce too many digestive juices, which can lead to heartburn. Meal time is not the time to discuss personal or business matters. Stop talking In addition to the obvious connection between talking and stress, there is a very practical reason why meals should be quiet. When we are talking and eating, we tend to swallow large amounts of air, and that causes unfavourable bloating and gas.  Food must be well chewed in order to be properly digested. This is a two part article so stay tuned!

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. 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 4-5 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. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

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.
