THIS Is What's Causing You To Feel Bloated All the Time

September 04, 2015 2 min read

Are you constantly complaining of feeling bloated? You're not alone. In fact, David T. Rubin, M.D., fellow of the American College of Gastroenterology and chief of gastroenterology, hepatology, and nutrition at The University of Chicago Medicine says that many of his own patients complain of feeling this way, even snapping selfies to prove their waistlines are experiencing fluctuation as the day goes on. But Rubin says bloating, which is simply excess gas and air in the digestive tract, is brought on by more than just what you consume. These everyday habits may be the reason you're experiencing that uncomfortable feeling. 1. Chewing gum “A lot of people chew gum to keep them from eating between meals, but when you chew gum, you unwittingly swallow some air,” explains registered dietitian nutritionist Bonnie Taub-Dix, R.D.N. And not only do many gums contain sugar alcohols which cause bloating and gas, but all that extra air you're allowing into your system is causing your intestines to feel blown up! 2. Scarfing your food “Digestion starts in the mouth, not in the stomach,” explains nutritionist Rania Batayneh, M.P.H., author of The One One One Diet: The Simple 1:1:1 Formula for Fast and Sustained Weight Loss. So when you scarf down your food, you're body has to work extra hard to digest it, which leads to gas. 3. Drinking through a straw Next time you take a sip, make sure it's straight from the lid and not from a straw.  “Every time you sip through a straw, air comes up before the liquid,” says Taub-Dix, owner of Better Than Dieting nutrition consultancy and author of Read It Before You Eat It. Do you constantly feel bloated and perhaps sip through a straw, chew gum or eat too fast? Source: Yahoo

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. 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 4-5 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. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

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.
