Okay, I'll admit I'm a sucker for cooking shows of all kinds. But as it turns out, these shows can also encourage you to pack on a surprising amount of weight. As in 10 pounds! (Say it ain't so!)
New Research from Cornell University’s Food and Brand Lab found that people who watch food television and frequently cook from scratch weigh roughly 10 whole pounds more than home chefs who find their recipes online or from family/friends. In fact, finding food inspiration on social sites like Pinterest also led to higher BMIs.
Before you panic and delete your Pinterest account or stop watching Iron Chef - it's not the actual watching of the shows that's the problem but rather, trying to replicate what you see.
More often than not, the dishes on these forums tend to be pretty indulgent. It's also largely to do with portion sizing (in order for it to look pretty on screen - it's gotta be big). We try to mimic the look and often end up making way too much! And more often than not, even though it's made at home (so it must be healthy right?), if the recipe comes from primetime chefs, we're actually setting ourselves up to eat a pretty high-cal, low-nutrition dish.
So what now? Obviously pinterest and watch to your hearts desire, but when you want to try your hand at an as-seen-on-TV recipe, look for versions online or sneak in healthy ingredients. Better yet, save it for a cheat day (just be mindful of portion size!)
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.
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.
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.
