This Diet Has Just One Rule (You'll Never Guess What It Is)

December 04, 2015 2 min read

Do you ever find yourself feeling overwhelmed by the mountain of diet information that is out there? Should you count calories, increase fat, add protein, cut carbs? All of the above? None of the above? The healthy eating landscape can be a difficult one to traverse. That is why this 'diet' may be the one for you! This isn't really a diet as much as it is an instruction. Basically, all you have to do is avoid hyper-palatable (or HP) foods. Before we explain further, it is important to understand that some foods create a neurochemical, biological, and addictive response similar to drugs. Food manufacturers are all over this information and process their products so that you will eat more, feel less satisfied and become addicted. Weight gain comes when the internal sensors (like those for satiety) become numb. If you can't tell when you are full, how will you know to stop eating? HP foods are those you can't stop eating after one serving. Things like cookies and potato chips are designed to make you binge. When was the last time you ate an entire bag of apples? Never right? But, we can bet you can recall eating an entire sleeve of cookies. It is usually the combination of fat and sugar or fat and salt that makes a food HP. David A. Kessler, physician and former FDA president, says a Snickers bar is a great example of an HP food. As we chew the bar, "the sugar dissolves, the fat melts and the caramel traps the peanuts so the entire combination of flavors is blissfully experienced in the mouth at the same time," he explains.

What should you do instead?

If you stock your kitchen with non-HP foods, it will make your life a lot easier. HP foods can be reserved for special occasions. Things you can eat instead of HP foods include:
  • Raw fruits
  • Fresh vegetables
  • Cooked beans
  • Baked potatoes
  • Oatmeal (without added sugar, preservatives, etc.)
  • Raw, unsalted nuts and seeds
  • Salads
  • Soups
  • Dark chocolate (70 percent or more)
  • Yogurt (not the sweetened, artificially colored kind)
  • Cottage cheese
  • Eggs
  • Organic meats (not cured or lunch meats)
  • Wild fish
Take a pass on sugary sauces, marinades and coatings. Pretty simple, right? Avoid factory made, processed foods and increase natural and whole foods. Does this sound like a diet you might actually be able to follow? Source: Mind Body Green

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 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.
