Oats are naturally gluten-free.


emoticon True

Oats are gluten-free, but the processing of oats usually contaminates them with other gluten-containing foods, so only oats that are specially labeled as gluten-free are safe for people with sensitivities

What is the role of insulin in the body?


emoticon It helps convert glucose (from food) into usable energy
It increases your blood sugar after eating a meal
It helps you digest carbohydrates and sugar properly
All of the above


Under normal circumstances, the glucose (sugar) levels in your blood rise after you eat. In response, the body produces a hormone called insulin, which helps the body convert the glucose in your bloodstream into usable energy.

After a hard workout, you should see weight loss almost immediately.


emoticon False


Cutting calories today (through diet and exercise) will not necessarily show up on the scale at the end of the day or even by tomorrow. Your weight can fluctuate from day-to-day for reasons that have nothing to do with your diet and exercise program. Much of this fluctuation is due to water and food intake. While your scale may show changes throughout the day, fluctuations that could be due to food & water alone are not permanent weight losses or gains. Weighing yourself immediately after wearing a "sweat" suit, getting into a sauna, or finishing an intense workout might (or might not) show a loss on the scale. But that is temporary water loss that will come back after you re-hydrate yourself by drinking. Remember—you’re trying to lose fat, not simply "weight" or water weight.

How many servings of ice cream are in a single pint?


emoticon FOUR!!!



A pint of ice cream is not a single serving; it's FOUR servings. If you eat an entire pint, you have to multiply the number of calories, fat grams, etc. listed on the label by four. Stick to portions the size of half a tennis ball, and always scoop your ice cream into a small bowl instead of eating it directly from the container to prevent overeating.

Which of the following high-fat foods is a source of heart-healthy fats?

Coconut oil
Baked goods
Reduced-fat cream cheese
Poultry
emoticon Peanut Butter



Natural peanut butter (made without added oils or sweeteners) contains monounsaturated fats, which are the healthiest fats for your heart. They decrease your total blood cholesterol but maintain your HDL (good) cholesterol. Ideally, most of the fat in your diet should come from this group, which includes: almonds, avocados, cashews, canola oil, hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, olive oil, olives, pecans, peanuts, peanut oil, pistachios, sesame oil, sesame seeds, and tahini paste. Read SparkPeople's Fat & Oil Reference Guide to learn more about healthy and unhealthy fats.

How soon after working out should you eat?


emoticon Within 30 minutes to 2 hours


The ideal time to eat after a workout is within 30 minutes to two hours, when your body is ready and waiting to top off its fuel tanks to prepare for your next workout. But if your appetite or schedule doesn’t allow you to eat a meal right after your exercise session, don't panic. Your body can still replace your muscle fuel over the next 24 hours, as long as you're eating enough food to support your activity level.

Which of the following can help reduce the length and severity of colds and flu?
A- Eating dark green veggies
B- Drinking lots of water
C- Getting plenty of sleep
D- Taking a hot bath
All of the above
B and C only
emoticon A, B, and C only



There is no cure for the common cold or flu. But vitamin-rich fruits and veggies (dark green, red and yellow ones) can boost your body's resistance. So can adequate rest and plenty of fluids—especially water, which moistens mucous membranes and helps them fight off intruding viruses. Taking hot baths can be relaxing and soothe those flu aches, but it's not a good idea when you have a fever.

Your resting heart rate is a good indicator of what?

emoticon Your Fitness Level

Your resting heart rate (RHR) is a good indicator of your state of fitness. Fit people tend to have lower resting heart rates than unfit people because their hearts are stronger and more efficient, which means they can beat more slowly when at rest.

What type of stretching should always be avoided?


emoticon Ballistic Stretching



Avoid ballistic stretching and other high-force, short-duration stretches that use rapid bouncing motions or momentum. You have far less control during this type of stretch and therefore a greater potential risk of injury. It does not allow your muscles to adjust to, and relax in, the stretched position. It may instead cause them to tighten up by repeatedly activating the stretch reflex.

Hemp seeds are highly nutritious, containing essential fatty acids, amino acids, and minerals. About a third of the weight of the seed is made up of oil, and most of that oil is the healthy variety: ALA (alpha-linoleic acid, a type of Omega-3 fat) and linoleic acid. These essential fatty acids (EFA's for short) can benefit your health in many ways.

A woman is said to be in menopause when:

All of the above

Hot flashes and irregular periods begin to occur during perimenopause (the time before menopause). After one full year without periods, a woman is considered to be menopausal, or "in menopause." Symptoms like irritability and depression may occur in some women during this time, but aren’t necessarily caused by menopause.

By adding exercise to your weight loss program, you'll be able to eat more calories and still lose weight?


emoticon True




Remember, to lose weight, you need to create a caloric deficit. You can do this by cutting calories from your diet, by exercising more, or by combining both diet and exercise. Because you need to give you body a proper amount of fuel for energy, nutrients, and to ensure weight loss, it can be hard to cut a large amount of calories by dieting alone. By adding exercise, however, you'll be able to eat more and still meet your goals. Just make sure that you account for all the exercise you do when you set-up your SparkPeople program. This way, you'll get an accurate calorie recommendation for you to lose weight at a healthy rate. To learn how your calorie recommendations are determined—and how exercise fits into that equation—check out Calorie Calculations 101.

B - 12-15
C - 18-20
D - fewer
E - more
All of the above
Both A and D - ANSWER
Both C and E


If your goal is to build strength and muscle size, then aim for fewer reps (such as 8-10). Because you are doing fewer reps, you will need a heavier weight to reach muscle exhaustion in each set, so that's where the phrase "heavy weight, low reps" come from.

Sugar alcohols get their name from their unique chemical structure, which resembles both sugar and alcohol. But they're neither sugars nor alcohols.

What causes the common cold?


emoticon Exposure to a virus



Specifically, the common cold is caused by one of 200 viruses. It is true that a weakened physical condition, which might be worsened by cold weather, can hurt your body's attempt to combat a virus, but cold weather doesn't cause colds.

Exercising regularly can increase the size of the hippocampus region of the brain.


emoticon True



A study published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found that regular sweat sessions can increase the size of a region of the brain called the hippocampus--a part of the brain that begins to decline around age 30 in most adults. The hippocampus is tucked deep in the brain and plays an important role in learning and memory. According to researchers, a larger hippocampus is associated with better performance on spatial reasoning and other cognitive tasks.

Catching up on sleep can trigger migraines.


emoticon True


Lounging in bed until well after the sun rises—especially if you usually get up early—may help you catch up on some much needed sleep. However, alternating high-stress days with stress-free "veg" sessions can trigger changes in the amount of stress hormones in your bloodstream. As these hormone levels change, your blood vessels constrict (narrow) and dilate (widen), which can trigger a headache—especially if the shift is sudden.

Appetite and hunger are one and the same?


emoticon False


Appetite is not the same thing as hunger; it actually refers to an interest in food. It's often said that someone's appetite can override their hunger and fullness. When some people feel stressed, they could lose their appetite and choose to ignore feelings of hunger. (Others respond the opposite way, eating in response to stress or negative emotions despite a lack of hunger or strong feelings of fullness.) And how many times have you sat down to a delicious meal and continued eating even though you were experiencing sensations of fullness? That, too, is an example of appetite overriding the signals from your body. As you start becoming more aware of hunger signals, do not confuse appetite with physical signs of hunger.

A thiamin (vitamin B-1) deficiency can lead to


Rickets
Scoliosis
Scurvy
emoticon Beriberi



In the United States, a deficiency of thiamin is rare because refined grains are enriched with this nutrient. Before refined grain products were enriched, a thiamin deficiency could result in a disease called beriberi. Signs of beriberi include loss of appetite, constipation, muscle weakness, pain or tingling in the arms and legs, swelling of the feet, mental depression, memory problems, shortness of breath, and fast heartbeat. Thiamin deficiency does occur in alcoholics because of impaired absorption.

After a hard workout, you should see weight loss almost immediately.


emoticon False


Cutting calories today (through diet and exercise) will not necessarily show up on the scale at the end of the day or even by tomorrow. Your weight can fluctuate from day-to-day for reasons that have nothing to do with your diet and exercise program. Much of this fluctuation is due to water and food intake. While your scale may show changes throughout the day, fluctuations that could be due to food & water alone are not permanent weight losses or gains. Weighing yourself immediately after wearing a "sweat" suit, getting into a sauna, or finishing an intense workout might (or might not) show a loss on the scale. But that is temporary water loss that will come back after you re-hydrate yourself by drinking. Remember—you’re trying to lose fat, not simply "weight" or water weight.

emoticon Women should lift Light Weights for More Repetitions to avoid " Bulking Up "?

emoticon FALSE! !

emoticon While on a Weight Lifting Program, the right hormones ( Testosterone ) are necessary in order to " Bulk Up." Women's Testosterone Levels are much lower than Men's, so in most cases, they are not capable of building large muscles. In fact, since Muscle takes up less room than Fat, Women tend to lose inches when they Strength Train. So, in addition to the Physical Benefits ( Increased Metabolism, Decreased Risk of Osteoporosis, Increased Strength ), Strength Training will help you Slim Down, too! !
emoticon Women, in fact, are more likely to tone up from Strength Training than to " Bulk Up. " Research shows that Women can add up to 30 % Lean Muscle and end up Looking Thinner, Feeling Stronger, and Being Firmer. No matter how many Repetitions you do, you should be Lifting a Challenging Weight and feel Muscle Fatigue by the end of each set.

Roughly 60% of the calories you eat at this time should come from carbohydrates. Contrary to popular belief, your body needs more carbohydrates than protein after a workout, to replace the muscle fuel (glycogen) you used up and to prepare for your next exercise session

emoticon FALSE!!

Your body can store energy from food for future use in two ways: 1) as fat and 2) as muscle fuel (called glycogen). Its first priority is to fill its glycogen tanks, because glycogen is the body's primary source of energy for physical activity. Once your glycogen stores are filled and the rest of the body's energy needs are covered, all the extra energy from your food will be stored as body fat.

Soluble and insoluble fiber have the same functions and benefits?

emoticon False

Eating foods with soluble fiber may help to lower blood cholesterol and decrease your risk of heart disease. These foods may also help lower blood sugar levels, which is important if you have diabetes.

Insoluble fiber is often called roughage or bulk because it keeps the digestive system running smoothly. This helps with constipation, hemorrhoids, and other digestive problems. It may help to prevent some types of cancer.

emoticon The ''Freshman 15'' is a myth?


emoticon True



A 2011 study published in Social Science Quarterly showed that the typical weight gain during the first year of college is just 2.5 to 3.5 pounds and has little to do with higher learning and more to do with becoming a young adult. The not so good news: About 10 percent of freshmen will gain 15 pounds or more during their first year. And that's just the first year. Experts aren't as concerned about these actual pounds as they are about the rate at which students put them on. A 2008 study found that college students gain weight six times faster than the general population. And according to researchers, young adults continue to gain weight (1.5 pounds per year on average) during the four years after they graduate, too. Not all of this can be chalked up to "growing up," though. If left unchecked, the weight gain many experience as young adults can become a serious problem.

emoticon In order or Exercise to improve your Cholesterol Levels, it must be:

a) Intense
b) Long Lasting (over 30 minutes per session)
c) Accompanied by a Reduction in weight
d) Supervised by a Medical Professional

emoticon None Of The Above


emoticon Exercise can increase your HDL (good) Cholesterol Levels while lowering your LDL (bad) Levels. The American Heart Association recommends 30 minutes of exercise most days of the week.
Even moderate activity, if done daily, can make a difference. Research shows that Cholesterol Improvements are related to the Amount Of Exercise, and NOT on the Intensity Of The Exercise.
Even if you lose a little weight, Exercise can help you improve your Cholesterol.
Heart Healthy Changes can occur inside your body before Any Benefits are seen on the outside.
Although everyone should consult their Health Care Provider before starting an Exercise Program in most cases you won't need medical supervision to Exercise safely and effectively.

emoticon False
While eating chocolate may perk you up, chocolate is actually not very high in caffeine. A 1.4-ounce chocolate bar or an 8-ounce glass of chocolate milk both contain 6 mg of caffeine, the same amount as a cup of decaffeinated coffee. (For reference, regular coffee contains about 65-135mg of caffeine.)
