True or False: One ounce of dark chocolate contains as much caffeine as an 8-ounce cup of coffee. 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.) Go to trivia home »

Which of the following is responsible for the sweetness in some candies?
Answer: Corn syrup
Although all of these ingredients can be found in candy, corn syrup is the most common sweetening agent. Artificial flavors provide the flavor, but not the sweetness. Modified corn starch is a thickening agent, and yellow 5 is a food coloring.

Which of the following ingredients is NOT a caloric sweetener?
Answer: sucralose

Sucralose is the only non-caloric sweetener in this list; it is an artificial sweetener. Dextrose and maltose are types of sugars that contain calories, while diastase is an enzyme in the body that breaks down starch.

True or False: Sweating during exercise causes acne
Answer: False
Sweat in itself neither fights acne nor causes it; but the increased blood flow, unclogging of pores from sweating, and stress reduction that result from exercise may all benefit the acne sufferer, says the Children’s Hospital of Colorado (CHC).

After an intense workout, what nutrient does your body need most? Carbohydrates


Carbohydrates. 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. Moderate exercisers need about 30-40 grams of carbohydrates after an hour of exercise, but high-intensity exercisers need more—around 50-60 grams for each hour they exercised.

True or False: Some medications can affect your heart rate during exercise. True

Some medications (such as beta-blockers) can affect your heart rate during exercise. An exerciser taking beta-blockers may be working at a high intensity but might never reach her target heart rate. Therefore, people on medications that affect heart rate should not measure workout intensity by counting their heart rate.

Which drive-thru taco salad (with dressing) contains fewer calories? Wendy's Southwest Taco Salad

Even with the added dressing, Wendy's salad weighs in with fewer calories (640), fat (38 grams), and trans fats (1.5 grams). Taco Bell's Fiesta Taco Salad packs 820 calories, 43 grams of fat (more than 70% of your daily value), and 1.5 grams of trans fats. You can make Wendy's Southwest Taco Salad healthier by ditching the dressing and tortilla strips. You'll still retain a lot of flavor, thanks to the seasoned chili and sour cream, but you'll save 200 calories and 13 grams fat.

Inactive adults who don't strength train regularly can lose how many pounds of muscle mass per year? 1/2 a lb.

Without consistent strength training, muscle size and strength decline with age. An inactive person loses 1/2 pound of muscle per year after age 20. After age 60, this rate of loss doubles. But, muscle loss is not inevitable. With regular strength training, muscle mass can be preserved throughout the lifespan, and the muscle lost can be rebuilt. Learn Why Strength Training is a Must for Everyone.

True or False: People who skip breakfast tend to LOSE MORE weight than people who eat breakfast. False

A 2002 study by the National Weight Control Registry, a group of more than 3,000 people who have lost at least 30 pounds and kept it off for at least a year, found that breakfast eaters were more successful at maintaining their weight loss. Another study found that women who skipped breakfast made up for it by eating more throughout the day.

How many nutrients are lost when whole grains are refined into white flour? 17

When grains are processed and refined, the bran and germ are removed, leaving behind the white endosperm. During this process, grains become less nutritious, losing 25% of their original protein content and 17 other essential nutrients. While manufacturers then "enrich" the flour with some vitamins and minerals, a naturally whole grain is still a healthier choice. Compared to refined grains (white bread, white rice, white flour), whole grains pack more protein, fiber, vitamins (B vitamins and vitamin E), and minerals (magnesium and iron), as well as some antioxidants not found in other foods.

True or False: The elderly are more likely to be depressed than any other age group. False

Depression is not a natural part of aging. While you may think that the risk of developing depression increases with age, that's not always the case. In fact, studies show that the elderly are more likely to be happy and content with their lives than their younger counterparts. Depression can occur at any age (even in children), but it is most common in people between the ages of 24 and 44

Which of the following statements best describe the method for measuring your resting heart rate? All of the above

To accurately measure your resting heart rate: Count your pulse on your wrist (radial pulse) or on the side of your neck (carotid pulse)--prior to getting out of bed in the morning. Count the number of beats, starting with zero, for one full minute. For accuracy, take your resting heart rate three mornings in a row and average the heart rates.

True or False: Appetite and hunger are one in the same. 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.

Which of the following statements about alcohol's effects on blood sugar is correct? Alcohol can both raise and lower blood sugar

Alcohol can interfere with your blood glucose control, both raising and lowering blood sugar. Once in your system, alcohol initially lowers blood sugar, which can lead to hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). Some alcoholic beverages can raise your blood sugar because of their high carbohydrate content. To prevent your blood sugar from going too high, avoid sweet wines, liqueurs, and sweetened drinks like daiquiris, margaritas, pina coladas, etc. and choose lower-carb drinks.

If you made chocolate chip cookies with half the chips called for in the recipe, how many calories would you save per cookie? 22 calories

Explanation
Use miniature chocolate chips in your cookies and reduce the amount by half. Though mini chips and regular size chips have the same nutritional content, by reducing the amount, you'll get more, smaller chips throughout the cookies. You'll save 1,050 calories per cup of chips you eliminate, or about 22 calories per cookie.

True or False: Even if you are at a healthy weight, your risk for developing hypertension is greater if you do not exercise regularly. True

Sedentary individuals have a higher risk for hypertension than individuals who are active. Regular exercise can lower both systolic and diastolic blood pressure. However, if you are overweight, your risk of developing high blood pressure is two to six times higher.

True or False: The only symptom of insomnia is difficulty falling asleep. False

Difficulty falling asleep is just one of four symptoms generally associated with insomnia. The others include: waking up too early and not being able to fall back asleep, frequent awakenings, and waking up feeling tired. Insomnia can be a symptom of a sleep disorder or other medical problem, and can often be treated. If insomnia symptoms occur more than a few times a week and also impact your daytime functions, discuss these symptoms with your health care provider.

True or False: For best results, you should increase the amount of weight you lift every time you workout. False

Progressively overloading your muscles is the key to effective strength training. But increasing the weight you use too rapidly can lead to burnout, chronic soreness, and overuse injuries. A better approach for most people is to increase the weight (by about 10%) when you can reliably do the higher number of reps each time in good form. These are the 4 Signs You Need to Lift More Weight.
