A New Study Suggests That Marital Stress Can Make You Fat

August 26, 2015 1 min read

When it comes to your significant other, you can rest assured you won't spend the longevity of your relationship agreeing on everything. Differences in opinion surface between people every day, and when it comes to the one you love, you feel comfortable enough to share your thoughts and stand your ground. But sometimes these healthy, minuscule disagreements go from talking to full on fighting. And while we can all agree that fighting isn't fun, it could also be leading to health issues that you may want to steer clear of. fighting These spousal arguments lead to an increase in ghrelin, which is the hormone that increases your hunger and promotes junk food cravings. "Ghrelin's not just pushing you to eat — it's creating a craving for foods ... that are high in sugar, fat and salt," explained Lisa Jaremka, an assistant professor at the University of Delaware. Jaremka and her colleagues conducted a study of 43 married couples that had tied the knot at least three years ago. They tracked their food intake, their ghrelin levels and the way they argued. What they concluded gives us even more reason not to get in a scuffle with the one we love. In fact, the study found that the more marital stress present, the more likely unhealthy foods were consumed — which begins a downward spiral towards disease and death. fighting Have you found that when you and your spouse have fought, you've turned to junk food as a way out?

Shipping & Delivery

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

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.
