February 04, 2015 2 min read

Here is a list of foods that provide the most amount of nutrients for the least amount of calories. It is probably no surprise that vegetables made the top of the list. They provide the most amount of vitamins and minerals, but have the lowest calories. Let’s see what veggies made the list – as well as fruits and proteins. VEGGIES: Celery – one stalk has a measly 10 calories! Leafy Greens – the darker the better: Spinach has 7 calories per cup, along with iron, vitamin K, vitamin A, manganese and folate. Kale contains 33 calories per cup, and arugula, another type of lettuce, provides you with only 4 calories per cup. Asparagus – is one of the richest sources of folate is asparagus and one cup contains only 27 calories. Broccoli/Cauliflower - One cup of broccoli contains 31 calories and provides you with essential nutrients such as iron, vitamin C, folate, vitamin A and vitamin K. Cauliflower also only has 27 calories per cup. Mushrooms - White mushrooms contain 21 calories per cup. Portabella mushrooms have 19 calories per diced cup. They are also one of the very few foods that provide a natural source of vitamin D. They are also a significant source of selenium, riboflavin, potassium and niacin. FRUITS: Grapefruit - Most fruits contain more calories when compared to vegetables, due to their high natural sugar content, but a half of a grapefruit only has 37 calories. They are an great source of vitamin C. Apricots – One of the lowest calorie fruits with little over 30 calories. Apricots contain ‘beta-cryptoxanthinm’ which can help reduce risk of colon cancer. Tangerines - contain about 40 calories per small fruit and provide you with a significant amount of vitamin C. Strawberries- One cup contains little over 50 calories and is full of anti-oxidants Watermelon - 1 cup of watermelon contains about 45 calories and it contains over 90% of water by weight. PROTEIN: Tuna - A 3 oz. serving of tuna has 22g of protein and 99 calories Egg Whites - one cup of egg whites has only 117 calories, provides more than 26mg of protein. Chicken Breast – 3.5 ounces has 23 grams of protein and 109 calories. Cottage Cheese - A cup of non-fat cottage cheese has 15g of protein and only 104 calories Fats are not on the list as they are high calorie, but of course it is essential to add healthy fats to your diet. Some of the best fats come from salmon, olives and olive oil, avocados, various nuts and seeds. Do you follow us on Instagram?

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.
