Weight Loss Tips From Women Who Work With Junk Food

October 06, 2015 2 min read

We all know how difficult it can be to make healthy food decisions when you are surrounded by 'junk' food. It is damn near impossible to opt for an apple with some almond butter at snack time when you are neck deep in chocolate. The following women know the struggle is real. These women spend their days surrounded by delectable treats and offer you these tips to help you stay the course when it comes to your diet:

Just take a bite

wicked_good_cupcakes_founders "Tasting the product is the easiest way to slip off course," says Danielle Vilagie, co-founder of Wicked Good Cupcakes. But she goes on to say, "you only need to take a bite. The taste doesn't change halfway through the cupcake." Her mother, and company co-founder, Tracey Noonan, recommends thinking about exercise as a chance for fun instead of a chore.  "Personally, I hate working out," she says. "So I find time for activities like playing with my dogs or kayaking."

Build activity into your day

darcy_wade_little_secrets Darcy Wade, the finance and operations manager at a chocolate company Little Secrets, likes to start her day with a workout. But that isn't all. She also uses a standing desk, conducts meetings and brainstorming sessions over a hike, and tries her best to walk around the office when she's on calls. Oh, and she also bikes home from work. If you commit to finding the time, you can find the time.

Maximize your snacks

Nicole_Dawes_late_july Mindfulness is key to good snacking.  "Mindful snacking in moderation has always been an important part of my diet," says Nicole Bernard Dawes, CEO and founder of Late July Snacks. Pick foods that are going to give you an energy boost and make you feel better, not ones that will cause a sugar crash and make you feel worse.

Exercise in the morning

dana_loia_bakery "My days are so crazy that I never know when they're going to end," says Dana Loia, CEO and founder of Dana's Bakery. "But the one thing I can control is getting up early to fit a workout in." Dana likes to surf or snowboard but when she's unable to do that, she checks out local boutique classes. Check fitness classes in your area, you'd be shocked at how many offer sessions before the workday begins.

Find a buddy

katherine-berman-sophie-lamontagne_0 Sisters and Katherine Berman and Sophie LaMontagne, co-founders of Georgetown Cupcakes, reached their weight loss goals together by walking and eating more balanced diets.  "Having a buddy who can be your support system through this journey makes a huge difference," Katherine said.

Allow for splurges

debra_theo_chocolate If you have a solid healthy diet as a base, you can allow for the odd splurge. "Enjoying food is one of the great sensual pleasures we have as humans," says Debra Music, chief marketing officer at Theo Chocolates. "So don't judge yourself if you overeat. Just press reset and move in the direction you want to go." As long as what you eat most of the time is nutrient dense and balanced, the odd chocolate won't hurt you.

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.

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.
