Frequently Asked Questions
Due to high ticket volume we will no longer be able to personally answer questions covered below or product questions better suited for our Facebook Support Group. IF not answered, please scroll and fill out ticket at page bottom.
Q: I forgot to use the coupon code!
A: We are sorry that once you have placed an order, we are unable to make any edits - we have a secure closed system where orders are automatically processed to our warehouses. While it may seem easy for us to ‘throw an item into the box’ or adjust an order because you forgot the coupon, that isn’t how it works. Please carefully confirm your order details including gifts and promos before hitting the Place Order button, as once clicked, orders go through as you made them.
Q: When Will I Receive a Tracking Number for my Order?
A: Orders are packed and shipped on the same or next business day. Tracking numbers come directly from UPS OR USPS and are automatically uploaded to your account plus sent to you via email within 48 hours of pick up by shipper. IF your tracking number says 'NOT IN SYSTEM' that means even though your order is on its way to you, shipper has not updated the system. This is more commonplace as UPS gets busier and busier each year.
USPS and UPS SUREPOST offer economy service, if you prefer full tracking, we recommend UPS Ground.
When order has been placed on FRI SAT or SUN, the order tracking information will not be available until MONDAY OR TUESDAY as these shipments are not picked up by UPS or USPS until MON afternoon. UPS and USPS do not pick up on weekends.
Q: Is the $7 Promotional Shipping offer available to all shipping destinations?
A: We are sorry but special promotional offers related to shipping are not extended to those with delivery addresses outside the mainland United States. Even though part of the US, promotional shipping offers do not include either Alaska and Hawaii as these areas are specialty delivery areas for USPS and UPS subject to higher rates.
Q: Do you have samples of Inspire?
A: We have an Inspire Travel Box available that contains our four most popular Inspire flavors in single scoop packets! Each Travel Box contains 2 each of 4 flavors of Inspire Singles with a multi compartment SmartShaker Cup, a bag of twenty Journey 3+3 Single Dose Multiformula Chewables and a box of Inspire Protein Breakfast Squares.

It is the number one bariatric choice of protein and has set the world on fire!
Q: What is your address and telephone number?
A: Bariatric Eating, PO Box 71308 Salt Lake City, UT 84171 | 888-492-9992
Q: My address is incorrect on my order, please change it for me?
A: If you have made an error on your order or need a product change, we are unable to make corrections or changes for you as our system is fully automated. When you hit the ‘Send’ button, your order is electronically processed and sent to one of our warehouse fulfillment centers. Most of the time our fast processing works to your advantage.
WHEN YOU RECEIVE YOUR TRACKING NUMBER PLEASE CALL THE SHIPPER AND THEY WILL ASSIST YOU IN MAKING THE CORRECTION - at this point, you are able to correct an address more easily than we are able to.
HOWEVER, WE WILL DO EVERYTHING POSSIBLE in working with our shippers to help resolve address issues when possible, but we cannot be held responsible for delays, fees, or delivery issues once you have hit the SEND button.
If such an error causes an order to be rejected, lost, delivered to an unknown address, or even destroyed, we cannot issue a refund or replacement. If the error causes the order to be sent back to us, you may be responsible for round trip shipping fees, which can greatly impact any refund for the cost of the merchandise.
PLEASE, CAREFULLY REVIEW YOUR ORDER BEFORE HITTING SEND.
Q: Do you ship to Canada? The UK? Australia?
A: We do ship to Canada and we hope to add the rest of the world soon! Many customers outside the US use freight forwarding services to order from us.

A: This in IMPORTANT Info Regarding Orders Shipped from the US to Canada:
