Shots of Olive Oil For Weight Loss - Could This be The New Thing?

August 20, 2015 2 min read

Diets are much like fashion. They eventually all come back around just like old fashion does. There are diets of the past that are now making their way back around to us now. One of the diets in particular consist of taking shots of olive oil or even drinking sugar water in between each meal. This will prevent you from snacking during the day and also will keep your weight in check. There is a theory that bland calorie cocktails will weaken the body’s association between calories and flavor, which will lead to eliminating those pesky cravings. A psychologist, Seth Roberts, had first announced his idea in a book called “ The Shangri-La-Diet.” He stated that he lost 35 pounds in just three months when he consumed 100 to 400 calories of just unflavored sugar water, bland foods, and olive oil. There is no specific study that says this way of dieting will work, but there is a psychological theory when it comes to eating flavorless meals, and how it can read train the brain to disconnect a flavor and the food.   Today, many experts are stating that because there has not been any studies that back this theory up, there would be no valid reason to think this would work in the first place. Although experts may think this way of dieting doesn’t work, there are still many fans of this way of eating because it stops them from going full force into snacking between meals. Although olive oil may prevent you from snacking in between meals, other foods can as well. The other foods include Chia seed pudding, plain Greek yogurt, or a handful of almonds. Not to mention, these alternate foods will taste much better than olive oil. Would you try this way of dieting? Let us know!

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. 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.

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.
