A Recipe For Fat Flush Water? We Think Not!

June 09, 2015 2 min read

You may have come across this or a similar recipe before. You may have read the claims that drinking this will help flush broken down fat cells from your body. But they are complete and utter hogwash. If this were actually a viable solution for ridding yourself of fat, we at BodyRock would have very little to talk about. Don't get us wrong, it is extremely important to stay hydrated. The amount of water you will need to achieve hydration depends on your size and activity level (and how warm it is outside) but it can't be done in order to lose fat. The recipe looks delish: 2 Liters (64 oz.) Purified Water 1 Tangerine, sectioned 1/2 Grapefruit, sliced 1 Cucumber, sliced 4 Peppermint or Spearmint Leaves Ice, (made from purified water) optional Mix in a pitcher before bed and drink throughout the entire next day. Please consider using organic produce for this, if it is unavailable to you, thoroughly wash the produce before adding it to the water. It makes some serious claims saying that:
  • The tangerine increases your sensitivity to insulin, stabilizes blood sugar and because they are high in vitamin C, you increase the fat burning during exercise
    Tangerine increases your sensitivity to insulin, stabilizes blood sugar, and stimulates genes to burn fat.
  • The grapefruit will increase metabolic energy, burn fat and increase energy
  • The cucumber helps you to feel more full, and acts is a natural diuretic which means less bloating and water retention
  • The mint leaves aid in digestion
Don't fall for these claims! They are true claims in terms of some of the benefits to your digestive functioning but you aren't going to lose any real weight by drinking it. There is nothing that burns fat better than regular exercise and clean eating. It is truly the only way. The only thing this recipe is good for is a really tasty, and healthy, alternative to soda. Sounds like a great summer thirst quencher but definitely not a miracle fat burner.

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

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.
