The Scientific Reason Why Love Can Make You Fat

November 18, 2015 2 min read

Letting yourself go a little is common when you settle down with someone you love. You can chill in sweatpants and be less worried about your hair and makeup as you were when you first started dating. But can being in love with someone actually cause you to gain weight?   According to a 2013 study published by The American Psychological Association, “Marital Satisfaction Predicts Weight Gain in Early Marriage”, couples who are in a happy, satisfying and loving relationship are more likely to pack on pounds. Over a 4 year study, those in healthy long term partnerships saw an increase in weight versus those in more tumultuous relationships. [bctt tweet="Have you put on the "early marriage 15"? "] It comes down to what is known as the The Mating Marketing Model. This theory suggests that when we are happy, we are less likely to feel the need to look a certain way in order to keep our partner attracted to us. Thus, we feel safe gaining weight as we will be loved regardless. But those who are in unhappy relationships are more likely to try and maintain a certain image out of fear that their partner will leave them for someone more attractive. “Given that satisfied newlyweds have already attracted a desirable mate, they may relax their diet and exercise regimen and, therefore, gain weight.” the study explains. lovers fat We don't mean by this that the weight gained is considerable enough to tip the scales. Mostly partners gained between 5 and 15 pounds throughout the four-year study. No matter your comfort level with your partner, it is important to stick to a healthy routine of getting active and eating well as to avoid any health complications. love lovers fat What are your thoughts on this study?

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

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.

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.
