It happens to all of us. Binging on junk food can be a release for some people. But instantly after we finish off our indulgence, we are met with regret and shame. Suddenly we feel like we've totally blown it when it comes to our diet and we can never get back on our feet. So, we succumb to eating more junk food and give up completely.

STOP. You do not have to do that! Recovering from a junk food binge is easier than you think! Don't let this one incident keep you from becoming who you want to be and eating how you want. Here are 6 ways to stop feeling guilty and start being proactive.

#1 Let Go Of The Guilt

The worst thing we can do to ourselves is hold on to guilt and let it consume us. Stop this damaging behaviour by letting go completely and forgiving yourself. Know that you can just hit 'restart' and try again. Everyone has failed at one point on the road to getting fit so you're certainly not the first.

#2 Get Active

Don't sit around worrying about what you have done. Get moving! Head outside for a run or even a gentle walk. Stretch, do some HIIT exercises or bodyweight workouts. Dance around to your favorite song. Getting your blood pumping and your head cleared will make you feel 100x better about yourself.

#3 Eat

The worst reaction you can have to binging is starving yourself. Diets don't work that way. You can not eat pizza one day and make up for it by eating nothing the next. Fuel your body with healthy options. This will rev your metabolism so you can produce more energy to burn off with exercise. Choose leafy greens, fresh fruit, lean protein, fibrous foods and probiotics. Healthy eating has to be a lifestyle. To get help making this transition, check out the BodyRock Meal Plan. More than just a 30 day menu planner, will walk you through everything you need to know. It comes with a nutrition guide to help you make sense of the science and a recipe book with over 70 recipes that will keep you from getting bored!

#4 Avoid Sluggish Digestion

To make your body feel good, choose foods that promote detoxification and prevent bloating and cramping. High-fibre foods like lentils, chickpeas, lima beans, avocados, oatmeal and flaxseed can help. It's best to avoid digestive disrupters like coffee, gluten, dairy, soda and alcohol that can cause more problems.

#5 Hydrate!

Drinking lots of water will give a boost to those high fibre foods you're consuming. It will flush away toxins and chemicals from the junk food and keep your body feeling good. Water is essential to a high-functioning metabolism so drink up every day! You can infuse water with fruits to add more nutrients and flavour to your daily drink.

#6 Strip Down Your Food

Try eating totally clean for a few days after your binge. This means no processed foods, added sugars or preservatives. Eat whole foods that benefit weight loss like sweet potatoes, quinoa and wild salmon. Embracing a more pure way of eating can help you avoid binges in the future as well!

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 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.

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.

Clothing

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.
