Myth Busters: Three Lies About Your Metabolism

August 18, 2015 2 min read

Metabolism is that recurring word in the health world that we all try to be very conscious of. We're constantly trying to figure out how to understand it — how to  keep it from slowing down, how to turbo-charge it, and what foods and lifestyle habits affect it the most. But have you ever felt like you've read the book on metabolism from front to back, yet still have so many questions, and so many concerns as to why everything you're doing doesn't seem to be working? The health world is tricky. There are so many facts, and so many opinions turned myths mixed in that keep us from really getting down to the nitty gritty truth behind it all. Here are three of the biggest metabolism myths busted. metabolism myths 1. Breakfast is your metabolism's best friend. It's widely known not to skip breakfast for a variety of reasons, one of which includes its benefit on kickstarting your metabolism. But a study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition discovered that breakfast had zero impact on resting metabolism. So, even though it's a great meal to get energy-boosting nutrients into your day, it's not necessary if you're pressed on time. 2. Hot work outs are the weight loss elixir to try Hot yoga, hot cycling ... hot anything! We step out of an hour long sweat sesh and feel 10 pounds lighter. We'll never go back to a standard work out class with fans blasting ever again! Contrary to the big "hot" fad, new research published in the journal Diabetes found that cooler temperatures may be the path to weight loss. The study suggests that switching on the AC at night may work to transform a person’s stores of brown fat, which is known as the “good” fat, by burning through “bad” fat stores when trying to keep our bodies warm. 3. Don't eat carbs after dark We've been told that our carb intake is meant for the day, when we're moving around and can burn it off. But a study in the European Journal of Nutrition found that idea to be false. Splitting into two groups of men on identical weight loss diets, the study had the first group eat their carbs throughout the day, and had the second reserve their carbs for nighttime. The latter group proved to burn more calories digesting their food the next day! Have you been believing any of these metabolism myths? Source: Yahoo

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 (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 4-6 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system

If you are not home when your package is delivered, BodyRock is NOT responsible if it is stolen. Please contact us if this happens to you and we will provide you with all the information needed to take the next steps.
