Junk Food Addict Went From Bloated Belly To Chiseled Abs In Just 15 Months!

March 07, 2016 3 min read

Sometimes when bad things happen in life, it can really derail our health, emotionally and physically. But sometimes, these same  bad experiences are enough to push us to change our circumstances for the better -- this was certainly the case with 28-year-old, Sebastian David. When his father was diagnosed with the debilitating motor neuron disease in 2013, David's weight began to spiral out of control. He admits that for 9 months, he never cooked himself a meal, relying solely on take-out. dude2 But in 2014, after his father passed, David vowed to start looking after himself. At that point, David weighed 202 pounds and had a bloated, distended belly. dude5

David says, "when my dad was poorly and he died I put a lot of weight on. After he died I decided it was time to get myself back together and get in the gym. I started working out three weeks after he died and with each week I could see and feel the benefits."

Now down to 147 pounds, his transformation is nothing short of incredible.


David went from spending $28 a day on fast food, to hitting the gym every day and eating 3,300 calorie diet. Where a typical day once included bacon, KFC dinners, chocolate, potato chips and anything he could find in his cupboards, his meals are now dramatically different. Now he eats things like  oats, eggs and blueberries for breakfast, chicken, sweet potato and broccoli for lunch and salmon and white potatoes for dinner. He ditched all processed junk foods in favor of  rice cakes and almond butter with fruit, turkey and rice, protein shakes and desserts of cottage cheese and nuts. dude3 [bctt tweet="Junk Food Addict Went From Bloated Belly To Chiseled Abs In Just 15 Months!"] David wasn't the only one to notice his impressive results. Folks at the gym began to encourage him to try out for bodybuilding competitions. Only 15 months into his new lifestyle, David finished 7th in a Britain-wide bodybuilding contest which led to a slew of modelling offers. "I have to confess, it's strange being asked to model when I look at photos of myself from two years ago," David said. "But I'm not complaining. It's nice to get a bit of attention now and then." dude6 David will be competing in his second competition in May and hopes for a top three finish. He is proud of his journey, and rightfully so! "In a way, getting fat was a good thing, because I wouldn't be doing the stuff I am now without it," he explains. "I didn't set out to compete in bodybuilding or do modelling, I just set out to get my body in shape and feel better but once I got going I kept reassessing my goals. I feel amazing now. I'm just happy to be happy and it's great being able to feel good about myself." What an inspirational story!

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.


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.
