Healthy Food vs "Healthy" Food

January 28, 2015 2 min read

Body Rockers!! There are so many foods that we eat that we “think” are healthy, but my friends we are being lied to BIG TIME. Marketing claims like “Fat Free” or “All Natural” “Organic” or even “Low Carb” make you believe the food is automatically good for you when in actuality it may not be. It’s important to weed past all the marketing claims and advertising and really learn which foods are really healthy and which ones are a bunch of junk, covered in health claims. Here are a few examples: Restaurant or Fast Food Salads – Salad has to be healthy, right?  Not quite. A typical restaurant salad can have more than 800 calories and 50 grams of fat.  Once you add in the cheese, bacon bits, croutons and definitely the dressing, that measly salad can really rack up the fat and calories.  One easy method is to make sure you order your salad with “dressing on the side” and “little or no cheese.”   Also make sure if there is chicken on it, it’s grilled chicken, not fried.
Protein Bars – Some protein bars can be very high in fat, sugar and calories. Actually, some are worse than most chocolate candy bars.  You need to read the label carefully and choose protein bars that are low in saturated fat and added sugars. Also, make sure that you actually need a protein bar.
Sushi –All sushi is healthy right? Wrong! Many rolls contained fried ingredients, called “tempura”—then add additional things like mayo and cream cheese which really rack up the fat and calories.  Plus, they are made with white rice.  Steer clear of any roll that has “tempura” in its name.  Order rolls with raw fish and vegetables and ask if the restaurant can make it with brown rice.  You can also order sashimi which is just raw fish. Muffins –Even bran and corn muffins which sound healthy have a ton of saturated fat and calories.  The average muffin can contain over 500 calories and 20 grams of fat.  This one is a waste of calories since muffins don’t fill you up either!  If you’re looking for a quick breakfast idea on the run, choose a whole wheat bagel or toast with low-fat spread. Pretzels – they are low in fat, yes, but also low in nutrition.  Pretzels are basically calories and salt.  They are not unhealthy, but they give you no nutritional value and the calories can rack up fast when you are eating these.  Instead choose low fat popcorn (a whole grain) or a whole grain granola bar instead. So basically don’t believe the “Hype!” Nowadays companies label anything they can and wish to take your money. Protect yourself and your loved ones and READ the label. Smile & Breathe BodyRockers!

Shipping & Delivery

Fast, Express Shipping.

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.
