Selfies. Everyone does it. Whether you are at the gym or lounging around your house, people tend to be.. well.. selfish.  But what if taking selfies helped you to lose weight and to get fit? One woman lost over 100 pounds from taking selfies. Eva Rut Gunnlaugsdottirm a 35 year old mother of two, hit her all time high weight following the birth of her two children and she finally decided to beat the battle of the buldge. driasiagiveaway She was so ashamed of her weight gain that she started eating healthier-and snapping photos to document her journey along the way and since she was constantly embarrassed by her selfies, she used that shame as motivation. She said: 'I posted the first one almost as a joke. I felt really bad about myself and looked bad and I felt if I could start to see the change it might help me to carry on. 'But in fact I was also so embarrassed about the images that it was something that made me determined to carry on.' Woman Lost 50 Kilos With Selfie Diet Her diet was once filled with fast foods, high calorie meals, and tons of junk foods that were simple convenient. She made a huge change and began eating homemade meals, lots of fruit, salads, soups, and lean meats. She also cut out wheat, sugar, and starch as well. But once she was craving something that she knew she shouldn't be indulging in, she would look back to her previous selfies for encouragement and the motivation to continue forward with her goals. After the first year of taking selfies, she lost almost 100lbs! She said that she felt more energetic for her kids and chose going outside to play with them and becoming more active with them over making her food a priority as it once was. Woman Lost 50 Kilos With Selfie Diet 'It was like I didn't do anything unless I got to eat at the same time,' she admitted.

'For me, food was a drug. I never ate just one little chocolate piece, it was always something more.

'The first two or three days of the diet were a bit difficult, but since then I've been so stable, floating around on a pink cloud.

'I was more energetic and could easily get up in the morning. The mental recovery was so much that I thought I had already lost 60 kilos (9st) in February, even though it was still a long way to go.


'I felt better as all kinds of physical pain disappeared.'

She added that she is no longer anxious about going abroad, when she was always wondering if she would fit into the airplane seat or if she'd need a seatbelt extension.

'I still find it painful to look at the first few selfies from last year, but I always feel better looking at the end of the year.'

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.
