This Extreme Weight Loss Story Includes More Butter and Bacon

November 23, 2015 2 min read

Extreme weight loss stories are inspiring and intriguing. While some people swear by a well-balanced diet and regular exercise, others take a more unique route. Suzanne Ryan is no exception.
The 31-year-old mother previously weighed in at 280 pounds, but dropped five dress sizes in just 10 months, losing just over 95 pounds. What's her secret? You might not believe it once you hear it. Suzanne's food secrets include tons of butter, bacon and cheese.After weighing in at her heaviest weight ever, she contemplated having gastric bypass surgery when she came across a diet known as Ketogenic.
The low-carb, high-fat diet promotes fat burn. And with minimal exercise, she stuck to a daily routine that would shed an extreme amount of weight off of her."I struggled with my weight all my life - there were so many diets I tried but nothing stuck, Suzanne, from San Francisco, said. "I had actually booked a consultation for a gastric bypass. I was at an all-time low, I was going to have to do something drastic. But I decided to give Keto a shot. I did my research and I cancelled the appointment with the surgeon and started my new lifestyle on January 13." She was able to eliminate a big obstacle. "It got to the core of my own personal problem - sugar. I used to eat a lot of cakes and drink a lot of fizzy drinks. The first few weeks were tough but once I cut it out I had so much energy to play and run around with my daughter."
I feel so much better, I haven't had cakes or sugar since I started - it's not a diet or a fad, it's a lifestyle." Along with steering clear of sugar, Suzanne lessened her carb intake, like bowls of pasta and sides of potatoes, and filled up on meat and vegetables. "The most amazing thing is you aren't depriving yourself of food. I eat fatty meats, dairy, cheese and bacon. I don't have that hungry feeling because eating higher fat keeps you satisfied. It's not like sugar crashes." Her husband, Mick, 34, also tried this diet, losing 70 pounds." I was desperate to get out there and tell others it was possible. I wanted people to know you don't have to spend money on products or struggle on ridiculous diets," Suzanne said. "I was hoping it would touch one person, but I have been blown away by the response." Have you heard of or tried the Ketogenic diet before?

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.
