Are You Food Obsessed?

May 02, 2014 2 min read

I’ve never thought of myself as someone who was perpetually in a state of hunger, but after looking at Buzzfeed’s hilarious list of 26 struggles only people who are constantly hungry will understand, maybe I am! So many of the points were relatable, although I’d have to insert an addendum or two. I definitely get hangry. When I haven’t eaten I become irritable and grumpy, and can’t seem to think straight, but this is actually a pretty rational reaction, considering that your brain burns the most calories in your body. hungry hangry I also always grocery shop with a list, and never on an empty stomach, but I feel like this is a good idea for everyone – food obsessed and not, it cuts down on unnecessary purchases. hungry grocery shopping   Also, drunk food is important! You want your body to absorb all that alcohol, right? And with proper planning you can keep your drunk eating fairly healthy.   hungry drunk food Most of these things I laughed at or agreed with, but I have to say I disagreed with the point about hating when people take pictures of their food because it is wasted time. I will often take pictures of my food, especially if it looks particularly good, or if I spent a long time making it, because I know that in moments it will be devoured. When it comes to dining out, I do agree that watching another table get their food is possibly the most heartbreaking feeling in the world. hungry waiter Although, I actually enjoy when I get my food first and I wait for other people’s food to arrive, it builds a sense of anticipation. As for asking if someone’s going to finish that, we share food in my family, we ALWAYS ask – or, sometimes we just help ourselves to someone else’s food, something my sister-in-law makes fun of us for constantly. hungry finish that? My hunger doesn’t necessarily have a reputation with friends and family, but my eating habits certainly do. This kind of ties in to the point about people trying to talk to you while you’re eating. hungry talking People trying to talk to me while I eat is entirely futile. I become so absorbed in my eating that I block out the rest of the world, as greatly evidenced by my surprise birthday party, at which we got burritos, and as I ate my burrito people came out to say surprise and it took me a solid 30 seconds to come out of my food daze and compute what was happening. Also, a friend of mine had been hiding completely in plain site, sipping a beer, which caused my other friends to laugh – I was completely unaware because of my burrito-centricity. What I’ve realized from this flood of gifs, is that I am not food obsessed, but I do truly enjoy eating. It’s not just what you eat that determines how healthy you are, it’s when, how much, and why you eat – I like to think, and hopefully I’m right, that my food appreciation helps rather than hinders my overall health. hungry food love

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.

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.
