Here's How You Can Lose 4 Pounds in 1 Month

September 21, 2015 2 min read

Sometimes you can feel totally defeated when it comes to losing weight. You workout, you eat right and you try to drink enough water and snag optimum shut-eye. But sometimes you just need a fresh take on the whole thing, especially when it comes to what you're eating.   If your goal is to drop pounds over the course of one month, try to incorporate small nutritional changes to your diet that will allow you to work your way up to an overall shift in your lifestyle and give you the tools you need to achieve long-lasting results. Substitute a healthier version of the foods you crave without feeling like you're missing out. Want to know how you can save 1,500 calories this month and lose 4 pounds? Try these swaps: The Switches To Make Every Day The switch: Seltzer instead of soda The savings: 140 (about 4,200 per month) “The carbonation creates gas in your stomach, which takes up some space,” says Jessica Cording, RD, a dietitian in New York City. “You may feel more satisfied, so it can be a good way to transition into soda-free life.” The switch: An iced coffee with two tablespoons 2% milk instead of an iced latte The savings: 100 calories (about 3,000 per month) The Switches To Make Twice A Week The switch: A quarter-cup of sliced apple in your salad instead of quarter-cup dried cranberries The savings: 78 (about 624 per month) “A lot of people add dried fruit to salad, but they pack a lot of calories,” says Cording. The switch: Seven ounces plain 2% Greek yogurt with a teaspoon of honey instead of seven ounces flavoured yogurt The savings: 50 (about 400 per month) The switch: A nori (seaweed) sheet instead of a whole-wheat tortilla wrap The savings: 110 calories (about 880 per month) The switch: One ounce 2% plain Greek yogurt on your wrap instead of one ounce mayonnaise The savings: 167 (about 1,336 per month) The switch: An orange slice in water instead of an eight-ounce bottle orange juice The savings: 120 (about 960 per month) “One glass of orange juice has five to six oranges in it, so it contains a crazy amount of sugar,” says Brigitte Zeitlin, RD, a dietitian at B Nutritious. The switch: One cup cooked spaghetti squash instead of one cup cooked spaghetti The savings: 158 calories (about 1,264 per month) The switch: One ounce air-popped popcorn instead of one ounce potato chips (about 15 chips) The savings: 129 calories (about 1,032 per month)   The switch: One cup cauliflower rice instead of one cup white rice The savings: 180 calories (about 1,440 per month) The Switches To Make Once A Month The switch: a four-ounce turkey burger in a lettuce cup instead of a four-ounce beef burger in a bun The savings: 182 calories The switch: A quarter-cup frozen blueberries in your cereal instead of a quarter-cup raisins The savings: 71 calories The switch: one ounce of avocado on toast instead of one ounce of butter The savings: 158 calories Source: Prevention

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.

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.
