The Good & The Bad of Sushi

March 13, 2015 2 min read

I absolutely love sushi. It just may be one of my favorite foods. Sushi is one of those foods that most people are quick to dub as "healthy." However, some sushi rolls are far from the case and could be just as bad as eating some widely known junk foods. So, let's get to the bottom of it all and find out which rolls are good, bad, and just plain ugly for your diet. The Good. There are plenty of good sushi rolls out there to choose from, but here are 5 main favorites: il_fullxfull.301384704
  1. California Roll: 225 calories.
  2. Cucumber Roll: 136 calories.
  3. Salmon & Avocado Roll: 304 calories.
  4. Avocado Roll: 140 calories
  5. Spicy Tuna Roll: 290 calories.
The Bad. There are also plenty of bad sushi rolls out there as well, but here are 5 of the main popular ones: il_fullxfull.301384704
  1. Shrimp Tempura Roll: 508 calories.
  2. Volcano Roll: 430 calories.
  3. Philadelphia Roll: 400 calories.
  4. Rainbow Roll: 476 calories
  5. Eel & Avocado Roll: 400 calories.
Here are 6 tips to enjoying your sushi night without breaking your weightloss goals: il_fullxfull.301384704
  1. SKIP the tempura. Tempura is basically deep fried batter and we all know that fried = a ton of unneeded calories.
  2. Hold the mayo. Most "spicy" rolls are made with a combo of mayonaise and Sriracha sauce. If you want the spice without the calories, just ask for the Sriracha sauce and no mayo!
  3. Eat in moderation. If you are like me, then you can probably take out 3-4 sushi rolls in one sitting. Unfortunately, this is not a good idea. Remember to eat in moderation and stick to two rolls. To help this, try ordering some edamame before your rolls come or even a soup or salad.
  4. Enjoy the basic things and stay away from fancy. You don't need all of the extra stuff: cream cheese, tempura, mayo, and crunchy because you will be paying for it in the end; not to mention, these rolls can be a bit costly compared to the others. Simple is key, here.
  5. Choose brown rice. If your sushi joint has it, go for it. Don't be afraid to ask! Speaking of rice, ask your waiter to go easy on the rice. You can bust your carb limit in one sitting without realizing it!
  6. Choose Sashimi. Raw pieces of fish are the way to go to a healthier plate-if your tummy allows! Not all people can handle to taste and feeling of eating something raw. Each piece usually runs about 25 calories or so and is protein packed!

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 4-6 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.
