How Green Tea Can Help Your Junk Food Cravings

August 04, 2015 1 min read

Thirty-year-old, Samantha Rees dropped eight dress sizes in 12 months by adding green tea to her diet.

As a single mother of two, Samantha Rees had reached 243lbs and realized she needed to do something about her unhealthy lifestyle if she was going to be around to see her children grow up.


After hearing that green tea was a “superfood” that boosts the metabolism, Samantha quickly added it to her daily routine, and started drinking 9 cups a day. It’s considered a superfood because it’s rich in antioxidants which help prevent disease and can help reduce cravings.

'I thought it was one of those crazy fads that people get obsessed with - but for me, it really worked,’ Samantha states.

In addition to drinking tea, Samantha also cut her calorie count, making smarter meal choices instead of the usual greasy pizzas, chocolate bars and biscuits.

She didn’t even like tea at first, but persevered in hopes it would help. 'That first cup of green tea tasted so bitter, I had to force it down,' she jokes.

Her perseverance paid off when she lost 14lbs in the first month, motivating her to continue the plan.

Her routine - drink one green tea every hour, on the hour - and within a year she lost 113lbs.

'Now my cups of green tea get me through the day. For me it's not a fad - it's a lifestyle,” she says.

Are you inspired enough to try it for yourself?

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.
