Sneaky Trivia Question!

Wednesday, September 07, 2011


A trick question on Trivia is sneaky!!! So I'm not going to get 100% this month either.

"... eating a couple fewer bites of food ..."!!!

emoticon emoticon emoticon

True or False: Simply walking for 15 minutes per day (without changing your diet) can prevent weight gain.
Explanation
Walking alone might not be enough to prevent weight gain. Researchers from the Center for Human Nutrition at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center say that simply walking for 15 minutes (or about 2,000 steps) and eating a couple fewer bites of food can help you prevent future weight gain.

How do people get 100% on Trivia every month???!!!

    Spark contradicts itself all the time .. and i point it out to them every time i see it too... i just went and looked and i have gotten 192 out of 122 correct .. LOL (only been playing for about 3 months and sometimes forget to play) .. ya, it is hard to get 100% and i think people look up the answers if they are getting 100%, sometimes i look and still can't get it right .. hahaha

    This is a trick question. Not the first time it has cost me 100%. You'd think I'd write this down. Sparkpeople contradicts itself in just this one article. One paragraph states that 2,000 steps (15 minutes) with 'a couple fewer bites' can prevent future weight gain. The next paragraph says 2,000 steps 'without changing diet' can prevent future weight gain. It's just guess work. Read on:

Researchers from the Center for Human Nutrition at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center say that simply walking for 15 minutes (or about 2,000 steps) and eating a couple fewer bites of food can help you prevent future weight gain.

Without changing diet, a review of pedometer-based walking programs found that participants who take 2,000 to 4,000 steps per day (that's about 1 to 2 miles) can still expect modest weight loss (about five pounds per year).

    The hard part of using a web search is occasionally you get a contradictory answer -- so if you are goggling the answer - look for Sparkpeople's answer. ( For Example look up how many types of Omega 3's and the first answer says "many people think there are 3 or 4, but there are 11." SparkPeople Trivia correct answer is 3)

    Try using Web Search. After all, it's like taking an open book test!
I still miss a few, because I didn't read the answer right, but I learn from searching for the answers.

    I NEVER get 100% a month - I wonder if people skip questions they don't know the answer to, or if they look up the answer, or what. I run in the mid-to-high-80s on average.

    I know what you mean!!! But I think questions keep repeating themselves so you probably just memorize their answers. I missed that one too.
