Is Coconut Water Actually Causing You to Gain Weight?

November 30, 2015 2 min read

People have been going coocoo for coconuts for quite some time now. Whether it be coconut oil, coconut milk or coconut water, it's become a favourite amongst foodies, athletes and celebrities alike. Coconut water in particular has been touted as a healthy beverage to consume. Coconut water is made from young coconuts and comes complete with a plethora of nutrients including potassium, magnesium, sodium, manganese, zinc, selenium and iodine as well as B-vitamins. Coconut water is wonderful, but it still has calories, so drink up in moderation. People claim that coconut water helps to achieve healthier skin, cures hangover, aids in digestion, promotes hydration and is even linked to weight loss. Though these may have you running to the store to purchase your own carton of the good stuff, perhaps you should think again. Coconut water is naturally sweet, making it an appealing beverage due to its taste alone. The natural stuff is low in fat as well as calories, making it a great alternative to typical sugary drinks that are often in our faces. It actually has 50 percent fewer calories than Coca-Cola, and has no additives as well. However, could coconut water actually be making you fat? Well, something to take into consideration is that it does, in fact, contain calories, so it shouldn't be treated as water per say. Having just a serving won't affect you too much, with 58 kcal in 250 mL, but drinking a ton of it will have the calories adding up quickly. The nutrients in this beverage are found in many other things as well, so you don't have to feel like coconut water is your one and only option for getting your health fix. But with this said, coconut water is definitely a great item to take advantage of, as long as you do so in moderation. Try out this healthy green smoothie, for instance: 1 cup of coconut water 1 green apple (with the core taken out) 1 squeezed lime 2 handfuls of baby spinach 1 small handful of mint leaves 1 cucumber Just blend all the ingredients up and serve! Do you drink coconut water regularly?

Shipping & Delivery

Fast, Express Shipping.

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies such as ours 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

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.

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.
