What to Say When Your Guy is Criticizing His Own Body

October 08, 2015 2 min read

Although there are multiple dads out there that are talking about their “dad bod,” there are others who rather not be open about their bald spot or beer gut. They literally hate those features about themselves. There was a poll that indicated that over the last three decades, the percentage of dissatisfaction that men have with their body has went up to 43 percent from 15 percent. The numbers are similar to women and their body image as well. However, the difference with men is that they are least likely to get any type of help with their body. Just like any insecurity, body issues tend to put pressure on your body, which can impact your sex life with your significant other. Whether he is worried about the shape of his pecs or his package size, try some of the following tips from O’Reilly to boost his confidence. skipping fat talk

Skipping Fat Talk

When you complain about your thighs, just to make your man feel better about his belly, it does more damage than you think. You may have good intentions while doing this, but body-shaming can be contagious. It’s best to surround yourself with those who are positive about their body image. It can really change how you feel about your own body.

Giving Honest Compliments

Guys crave honest compliments, just as much as you do. Tell him the most attractive parts of his body and be specific. Also, show love for his other attributes, such as his style or how he always makes you laugh. By helping build his self-esteem, you can boost how he feels about his body. Healthy decisions will allow him to feel better over time. However, never nag him about going to the gym. Instead, set up a date to do something together. Exercise certainly changes the way people feel about their body. Couples who commit to working out together will be able to stick to the program easier. Do you experience this with your guy? We would love to hear. Source: Womens Health Mag Do you follow us on Instagram? [caption id="attachment_112632" align="alignnone" width="100"]snapchat code @BodyRockTV[/caption]

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 (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 1-2 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

Free Shipping: We are thrilled to now offer free shipping at checkout! If you choose this option at checkout, your order will be delivered ground within 5-7 business days.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system
