Hurry Up and Eat!

July 10, 2013 3 min read

In this busy, fast paced thing we call life, convenience often out weighs, the average American's desire to cook a home-cooked meal. By convenience, I mean fast, and inexpensive. Fast food is a growing industry, which some of the largest corporations are comprised of. Not only are these multi-billion dollar companies located on nearly every busy intersection; some are located around the globe. When you travel on vacation, you can feel "comforted" by the familiar bright double arches, there to welcome you. The issue is, those familiar logos, stand for cheap quality and heavily processed "food." The choices for meals are extremely fattening, and have pretty much no nutritional value, when you really break it down. I know  some places have incorporated signage, to aid customers in making healthier choices, but  you would probably be doing yourself just as big a favor, by eating dog food. For example, say you order the 'Hot n spicy Mc Chicken.' It is one of the lower calorie items, available on the menu. Take a look at the ingredients found in this "meal," according to dietfacts.com. Mind you, I say lower calorie meals, and yet it still contains a whole whopping 330 calories; and that is without mayo. With Mayo, it is over 400 calories. This is 1/3 of the calories the average healthy females should consume in a whole day.
INGREDIENTS:
Hot 'n Spicy McChicken Patty:Chicken, water, salt and sodium phosphates
Breaded with:Bleached wheat flour, water, salt, modified food starch, spices, monosodium glutamate, garlic powder, onion powder, partially hydrogenated soybean and cottonseed oil, maltodextrin, sugar, natural flavors with extractives of paprika and annatto, dried egg whites, dextrose, yeast, paprika, yellow corn flour, leavening (sodium acid pyrophosphate, sodium bicarbonate, monocalcium phosphate), disodium inosinate and disodium guanylate, yellow 6, corn oil, lecithin. Breading set in vegetable oil.
Cooked in partially hydrogenated vegetable oils (may contain partially hydrogenated soybean oil and/or partially hydrogenated corn oil and/or partially hydrogenated canola oil and/or cottonseed oil and/or sunflower oil and/or corn oil)
Regular Bun:Enriched bleached flour (bleached wheat flour, malted barley flour, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, folic acid, reduced iron), water, high fructose corn syrup, partially hydrogenated soybean oil, yeast, contains less than 2 % of each of the following: salt, calcium sulfate, calcium carbonate, calcium silicate, wheat gluten, soy flour, baking soda, emulsifier (mono- and diglycerides, diacetyl tartaric acid esters of fatty acids, ethanol, sorbitol, polysorbate 20, potassium propionate), sodium stearoyl lactylate, dough conditioner (corn starch, ammonium chloride, ammonium sulfate, calcium peroxide, ascorbic acid, azodicarbonamide, enzymes), calcium propionate (preservative)

Lettuce

Allergens: Wheat, Soybean, Egg

Food Sensitivities: MSG (Monosodium Glutamate), Gluten

Ingredients such as bleached flour, MSG (monosodium glutamate), partially hydrogenated oils, diglycerides (unlabeled GMO), ETHANOL (what you fuel your car with), and high fructose corn syrup-- are not meant for ingestion. These are just a few out of the litter of ingredients found in the "meals" offered on fast food menus.
fast-foodDon't eat this!
There is a simple solution, which when added up, proves to be not only healthier, but also fairly inexpensive as well; plan ahead. Prepare meals for you, and your family, for the whole week. Get into a routine. These two things: planning ahead, and getting into a routine, are the very components necessary in living and eating healthier. Reading the labels, to make sure those ingredients are not in the food you buy at the store, is another thing I would highly recommend.
Happy meals don't make kids happy. A parent who cares for them, by preparing them home-cooked meals (which are nutritious), and spending time around a dinner table (when possible); makes kids happy. Those are the things people remember when they grow up.
Don't be a victim of the fast paced, unhealthy, American lifestyle. Eat nutrients! Care for your body, by feeding it natural ingredients; instead of GMO, processed, and highly fattening foods.

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.

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.
