The 100 Diet

July 01, 2013 2 min read

There are no shortage of diet fads, from Atkins to South Beach to the Zone. Quite frankly, it is exhausting just thinking about it, let alone trying to sort through the hype to find the truth.

New York Times Bestselling Author Jorge Cruise claims he's done the legwork for you. His new book, The 100, maintains you can lose up to 18lbs in 2 weeks if you restrict your sugar calories to 100 calories per day. Sound easy? Well, if we were talking about processed sugar calories, it might be, but we're not. We're talking about any kind of sugar. This means if you ate 2 apples in one day, you'd be over your allotted daily intake.

Cruise says, "It's all about the insulin. Everyone thinks weight loss is all about eat less, exercise more...a calorie is a calorie. [But] as much as I love equality, I'm not abiding equality when it comes to calories. Not all calories are the same."

So, if we stick to Cruise's principles, we can only have 1 piece of bread or 1 apple a day, but can have a few glasses of red wine, which only has 14 sugar calories per glass.

Interesting. People who have tried the diet report losing weight, but having trouble sustaining the lifestyle change. Cruise’s book is really just a refined Atkins diet. If you love your fruit, this lifestyle change is going to be pure hell for you. You can eat all the protein you want, but have a hankering for a big fruit salad? No can do, my friend.

Like most healthy lifestyle changes, you have to do what works for you. Changes that seem too extreme or hard will not likely last long term. Some people have had success with this plan, while others have managed a few days and then fallen into full-out binges.

If you’re curious as to whether it will work for you, you’re going to have to try it out. Our opinion? We can definitely see the benefit of limiting your sugars - even your natural sugars. Diets high in sugar have been linked to heart disease, diabetes and cancer. This said, we’d also like you to be able to complete your workouts, which might be a little difficult on this restrictive diet.

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 (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 4-6 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system

If you are not home when your package is delivered, BodyRock is NOT responsible if it is stolen. Please contact us if this happens to you and we will provide you with all the information needed to take the next steps.
