Is Your Personality Causing You to Cheat On Your Diet?

May 19, 2015 2 min read

Dieting is hard--there's no two ways about it! When you have to force yourself to NOT eat something that you really, really want, it feels like you're dying a small, agonizing death. Self-restraint is not a talent that everyone has, and it may be incredibly difficult to say "no" to that delicious food or drink. According to a study published in Science Direct in January 2015, your personality has a lot to do with the way you approach food. It can have a huge effect on your eating habits and your success in your diet. [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="742"] Source: www.fitho.in[/caption] What type of personality do you have? You're agreeable and easy to get along with.If this is you, you're likely to eat a lot less red meat. You're open to new and awesome experiences.Can you identify with this personality type? You probably have an easier time eating your fruits and veggies, and you tend to eat less red meat and drink few soft drinks. You're conscientious in life as well as in your diet.You tend to eat more fruit, you are fairly restrained in your eating habits, and you tend to eat less red meat. You also "pleasure eat" less often, meaning you eat fewer sweet and savory foods and soft drinks. You're a bit neurotic.Sadly, a lot of us are! Neurotic behavior PROMOTES external eating (eating for pleasure rather than for fuel), which means you probably eat more sweet and savory foods. You're an extravert and you like spending time around others. This isn't a bad thing, but your personality type means that you are more likely to "pleasure eat"--meaning a lot more sweets, savory foods, meat, and soft drinks for you! What this study shows is that the more neurotic and emotional among us tend to eat those emotions, leading to poor food choices. Those who are conscientious tend to be more restrained in their eating habits, and they make better eating choices. Here's an odd one: being more sociable is better for your health, but it's worse for your eating habits! Hanging around others and going out all the time can lead to poor food choices. What's the point of all of this? Simple: understanding how your personality affects your eating habits can help you to address the problems and control your tendencies. It's the only way to stick to your diet the right way!

Shipping & Delivery

Fast, Express Shipping.

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.

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.
