Enjoy Your Favourite Christmas Foods Without Putting On Weight!

December 11, 2015 3 min read

For anyone looking to lose weight, or maintain all your previous hard work, the holiday season can be a frightening and difficult time. Christmas cookies, cakes and cocktails can spell disaster for even the most disciplined among us. But, it doesn't have to be this way. Jane Michell, of dieting website Jane Plan, has a list of expertly devised tips to help you enjoy the holidays without wiping out all the good you've done. Her first tip? Drink plenty of water! "For every one sip of wine have three sips of water.  If there's someone constantly topping up your wine glass, don't worry," she says. "Keep a water glass on hand and sip regularly through the evening. You'll automatically drink less wine if you're hydrated." Michell also suggests standing as far away from the food as you can. "Stand as far away from the buffet as you can and, if a waiter does tempt you with canapes, avoid anything deep-fried or pastry based and limit yourself to three a night," she advises. Another, slightly unconventional tip, involves your wardrobe. Wear something tight. Wearing something that is tight around your belly will help prevent you from overindulging. "So a tailored suit and slim-cut shirt for the gentlemen and a clingy Christmas dress for the ladies, will not only show off your figures but help you eat less," Michell explains. When you are sitting down to eat, keep plates moving down the table so you are not tempted to overload your plate with less than healthy choices like potatoes and dinner rolls.

Imagine how it will look and feel when you are a few pounds lighter. Picture yourself wearing it and walking into your holiday event. Every time you are tempted to overeat something, think about that moment. Write it down: Recording everything you put into your body is a great way to not only keep track of how much you are consuming but it can also help you spot areas where you can tighten up a little. [bctt tweet="Enjoy Your Favourite Christmas Foods Without Putting On Weight!"] Avoid portion distortion: Reducing your portion size is a major part of losing weight. Even 'healthy' foods should be limited. Try eating 1/3 less of everything. You'll see results quickly. No more wine o'clock: As December wears on, your alcohol consumption is likely to increase. So, try your best to cut back wherever you can. Even if it is only a few days a week, you will see the difference in your waistline and your skin! Say no to food porn: Food advertisements and Christmas cooking shows are abundant this time of year. Do yourself a favour and limit your intake of these visual masterpieces. Looking at, and becoming excited by these images, can make it much more difficult limit your intake when the food actually appears before you. Are you nervous about the holiday season and your diet?

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.
