When you're fighting the battle of the bulge, you can use all the weapons you can wield. After all, it's not a single thing that ultimately helps you lose unwanted fat, but many little things that culminate in a trimmer, healthier figure.

Some of the fat loss hacks you hear about may seem too good to be true -- and some of them are. But there are others that are so brilliant in their simplicity that they actually work. And they work wonders.

Read on for 5 fat loss hacks that will get you real results.

1. Stop Eating After Dinner

Popcorn

Not eating anything else after dinner can help you shed unwanted weight. There are two main reasons:

  • You're not eating extra calories thanks to late night snacking. This alone can save you hundreds of calories  — calories you don’t need and are just consuming because your tired, bored or both.
  • You're allowing your body to enter a fully fasted state, which usually occurs around 8-12 hours after you've last eaten. In this state, your body is in fat burning mode and uses extra stores of fat as a primary source of energy.

2. Drink Water

Water

Drinking water works wonders to help you lose fat on many levels. First, it wards off false feelings of hunger; feelings that are usually the result of thirst or boredom. Secondly, it flushes your body of toxins, helping it metabolize foods more readily. Drinking water will also help keep you mentally focused, and this can help you make better food choices.

3. Workout in the AM

Morning Runner

People who workout in the morning enjoy trimmer, fitter bodies on average. Early rising exercisers have been shown to have a more balance insulin responses, as well as better willpower all day long, and these two factors combined can help you lose fat, and keep it off.

4. Eat More, Never Less

Dinner

Here’s a psychological hack that will keep you focused on the plus side of fat loss. Rather than thinking about everything you should be eating less of, focus on what you should be eating in abundance. For instance, don’t think about eating less refined carbs or sugar; think only about eating more protein and vegetables. If you do this, you’ll naturally limit your intake of the less ideal stuff, and eat more of the things that promote a healthier weight.

5. Lay Off the Sauce

Wine

If you drink and are having trouble losing weight, it’s likely time to rethink your love affair with the bottle  — however sporadic it may be. When you drink alcohol in any amount, you not only consume the calories from the alcohol, but you stall out your body’s fat burning engines for as long as it takes for your body to process the alcohol. This means instead of using the energy from whatever you have eaten or are eating to fuel your body, your body is storing it, usually as fat.

You ready to try these hacks for yourself? Go for it! You’ve got nothing to lose but some extra fat. If you need more help, grab one of our nutrition guides and enjoy no-brainer and insanely delicious healthy eating.

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 (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 4-6 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

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

If you are not home when your package is delivered, BodyRock is NOT responsible if it is stolen. Please contact us if this happens to you and we will provide you with all the information needed to take the next steps.
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.
