Why America Is Consuming Less Calories And Obesity Rates Are Skyrocketing

August 04, 2015 1 min read

The national calorie intake has plummeted in recent years with Americans becoming more nutritionally conscious. People are cutting back on junk food like soda and processed sugars, and yet the obesity rate is still tipping the scales. In fact, the number of American citizens who are considered obese outweighs those who are overweight. This means there are more people with a BMI (body mass index) of 30 or over, putting them at risk for diabetes, stroke, sleep apnea, gallstones and death. So if so many people are cutting calories, how is obesity on the rise? It comes down to the simple fact that forgoing junk food just isn't enough to lose weight. “To maintain a healthy weight, the energy eaten has to come out.” says Yikyung Park, a professor at Washington University. "People are not moving enough. And lifestyles are becoming sedentary.” For those looking to shed pounds, exercising needs to be coupled with nutritious foods and the elimination of processed, greasy and fattening junk from one's diet. Without burning the calories you are consuming, your metabolism will remain sluggish and the number on the scale will stay stationary. Your overall health can improve just by removing added sugars and fast food, but in order to see your weight drop, all you need to do is get moving. What are your thoughts on this surprising news?

Shipping & Delivery

Fast, Express Shipping.

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.

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.
