My Personal Rules: #4 Fat Combo

September 24, 2013 2 min read

This next rule is something that took me a long time to create. For the very simple reason that I didn't know about it. Through trial and error I have found that this one rule...if I didn't follow it...me and my body would greatly regret it. Combining food is what we do. In this day and age with the experimentation of succulent food and all that entails...you have to combine foods to make unique tastes. Yet I have found that there is a combination that I just cannot do. Carbs and Fats. It all started with a story my mother told me a long time ago about the first time she moved to San Francisco. She was newly divorced, working long hours, and didn't have time to cook. One day she was taking a walk and found this gorgeous little store that sold the most delicious herb and flavor filled olive oil that she had ever tasted. She bought a bottle. To go with the oil she bought a loaf of bread. It took her one week to go through that bread and oil, but she said it was amazing. Every night she would come home from work and eat it. After that one week, she happened to weigh herself. 11 In one week, she had gained ten pounds. This is no joke, folks. When I remembered this story I started to see the significance of making sure the combinations of your food are not lethal to your body. So I stopped combining fats with carbs. Unless it is my Cheat Day, I do not touch Bread and butter or bread and oil. This is perhaps why fried foods are so horrible for not only our hearts, but the scale. Examples, Potatoes with oil = french fries avocado with chips Bread and cheese (AKA, Pizza) popcorn with butter Hot Dogs Here, in Hawaii, the combo that I stay away from the most, but it also drives me crazy is, Macadamia nuts and Chocolate! Oh god...so good. But I simply save it...if I want it that bad, it can wait until Friday  (my cheat day). 50b920eed04c9ec1 These are the examples of obvious bad combos, but I even stay away from a combination of healthy fats and carbs. Don't be afraid of Carbs, and don't be afraid of Fats. Just don't combine them very often. And whatever you do...don't eat bread and olive oil every night. Whatever you do...run away no matter how good it tastes. My mother would second me on this... XO, Tessa 16652_1136852870132_6156195_n

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.
