The majority of runners strike the ground with:


The balls of the feet
The arches of the feet
The side of the feet
emoticon The Heels




A 2010 study in the journal Nature found that the majority of runners wearing shoes strike their heels, which causes a large and sudden collision force that happens (on average) 960 times for every mile ran. The authors concluded that this makes runners prone to repetitive stress injuries. People who run barefoot tend to land with a step toward the middle or front of the foot, causing less impact force to the foot.

Which of the following statements about sugar alcohols is FALSE?


They usually end in the letters ''ol''
They're neither sugars nor alcohols
They're used to sweeten packaged foods
emoticon They contain 1/8 the calories that sugar does




Sugar alcohols get their name from their unique chemical structure, which resembles both sugar and alcohol. But they're neither sugars nor alcohols. In fact, sugar alcohols are a type of carbohydrate that sweetens foods, but with half the calories of sugar. There are several specific types of sugar alcohols (usually ending with the letters "-ol"): erythritol, hydrogenated starch hydrolysates, isomalt, lactitol, maltitol, mannitol, sorbitol and xylitol.

Heart disease is the result of a combination of uncontrollable and controllable risk factors.

True

Many people understand that there is a connection between poor diet, lack of exercise and the development of heart disease. But your risk of developing cardiovascular disease is the result of a combination of many risk factors. There are two main categories of risks that contribute to heart disease--those that you can't change (uncontrollable risks), and those that you can (controllable risks).

Strength training elevates your metabolism immediately following a workout.

True

Johns Hopkins researchers found that while aerobic exercise burns more calories at the time you are exercising, your metabolism returns to normal about 30 minutes after you finish your workout. Individuals who perform strength training, however, elevate their metabolisms (burn more calories) for two hours after their workouts end.

It's better to squeeze out one more repetition, even with bad form, to really fatigue your muscles?


True
emoticon False






Bad form is never a good idea. The only thing this will accomplish is increasing your risk of injury. Your goal should be to stop after the last repetition you can do in good form--that means without using momentum or body contortions to move the weight. A little muscle trembling or shakiness is OK, but don't go beyond that.

A green-colored ring around the yolk of a hard-boiled egg is caused by....


A- Overcooking
B- Using spoiled eggs
C- Boiling eggs in water with high iron content
D- Thin eggshells
All of the above
emoticon Both A & C







Both overcooking and using water with a lot of iron will leave you with a greenish-colored yolk. Although still safe to eat, it sometimes looks less than appetizing. To achieve perfectly hard-boiled eggs, place your eggs in a 2-3 quart pot full of cold water. Heat your eggs to a rolling boil. Remove from heat and let them stand, covered, for 12 minutes. Immediately drain the eggs and place them in your refrigerator. Donít forget to mark them so everyone knows theyíve been boiled!

True or False: strength training helps reduce the risk of diabetes?


emoticon True
False






Regular strength training at a moderate intensity helps prevent diabetes in a number of ways. First and foremost, lifting weights helps improve the way the body processes sugar. Researchers have also found that weight lifting helps to improve insulin sensitivity and blood glucose control. Additionally, as stated above, resistance training improves heart health by controlling cholesterol and blood pressure, both of which play a role in diabetes management.

The morning after an intense workout, you start feeling quite sore. You notice that you feel this way up to 72 hours after your workout, but then you feel as good as new. Which type of muscle soreness are you experiencing?


emoticon Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness
Long-Term Muscle Soreness
None of the Above







Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness, called DOMS for short, is the soreness you're probably most familiar with. It's what you feel when you get out of bed the next morning after a tough workout. This type of muscle soreness begins 24 to 48 hours after your workout and actually indicates a natural adaptive process that the body uses after an intense exercise session. When you do a new or particularly challenging workout, your muscle fibers tear on a microscopic level. If you still feel pain well past the 72-hour mark you may be experiencing Long-Term Muscle Soreness. If the pain lingers for longer than 5 days, consult your doctor.

Which of the following statements about alcohol's effects on blood sugar is correct?


Alcohol has No Effect on Blood Sugar
Alcohol can only raise blood sugar
Alcohol can only lower blood sugar
emoticon Alcohol can both raise and lower blood sugar






Explanation
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 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.

"Stretching" and "warming up" are the same thing?

Explanation
Contrary to popular belief, stretching is not the same thing as warning up. A warm up can be a lower intensity version of the workout you are about to do, or it can be a completely different exercise. As long as it increases your heart and breathing rates, involves the muscles you are about to use, and lasts for 5-10 minutes it is considered a proper warm up. So why is a warm up so important?

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


True
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. Rememberóyouíre trying to lose fat, not simply "weight" or water weight.

Whether you think you can or you think you can't, you are probably right!

To lose body fat, it doesnít matter what you eat as long as you stay within your calorie range?


True
emoticon False






Your body has many complex processes that determine when energy gets put into and taken out of storage (fat cells). These processes are directly affected by what, when and how much you eat. Eating a healthy, balanced diet will make it easier for your body to burn fat and prevent the food you eat from being stored as fat. Whole, minimally processed foods and nutritionally-balanced meals are better than meals that are high in refined sugars, sodium, and/or processed grains. It's much harder for your body to turn lean protein, fruits, veggies and whole grains into fat than it is to turn sugar and refined foods into fat, for example. And more research is showing that a diet of whole foods is metabolized more efficiently than modern-day's processed food products, which may slow metabolism and lead to weight gain.

It takes the stomach about 20 minutes to realize that it is full, which is why experts recommend that we eat slowly. Put your fork down between bites to avoid overeating.

To become a better runner, you must run every day?


True
emoticon False





Running every day is not a good idea. Without proper rest and recovery, your muscles will not repair adequately and you will increase your risk of injury, which could sideline you for days, weeks or even years. It is during the rest and recovery phase that your body adapts to running. This does not mean you can't do other cross-training activities on your non-running days, however.

Which of the following nutrients should you LIMIT if you want to improve your cholesterol levels?


A - Trans fats
B - Saturated fats
C - Cholesterol
D - Polyunsaturated fats
All of the above
emoticon A, B, and C only





Explanation
Trans fat is the unhealthiest fat you can eat! It increases your total cholesterol and your LDL (bad) cholesterol while lowering your HDL (good) cholesterol. Saturated fat is unhealthy because it increases both your total blood cholesterol and your LDL (bad) cholesterol as well. Cholesterol should be limited to less than 300 mg daily. Polyunsaturated fats are somewhat healthy since they decrease your LDL (bad) cholesterol, but also decrease your HDL (good) cholesterol.

Inactive adults who don't strength train regularly can lose how many pounds of muscle mass per year?


0 pounds
1/4 pound
1 pound
2 pounds
emoticon 1/2 Pound





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.

HDL (High Density Lipoprotein) is the good, healthy cholesterol. HDL picks up and carries excess cholesterol away from artery walls and brings it back to the liver for processing and removal. You want this number to be high (at least 60 mg/dL)to protect your heart. Levels too low (less than 40 mg/dL) are bad for your health, increasing your risk for heart disease.

You can "cheat" on the amount of sleep you get?


True
emoticon False




Sleep experts say most adults need between seven and nine hours of sleep each night for optimum performance, health and safety. When we donít get adequate sleep, we accumulate a sleep debt that can be difficult to "pay back" if it becomes too big. The resulting sleep deprivation has been linked to health problems such as obesity and high blood pressure, negative mood and behavior, decreased productivity, and safety issues in the home, on the job, and on the road.

Individuals who do not absorb vitamin B-12 properly might have what condition?


emoticon Pernicious anemia



A lack of vitamin B-12 may lead to anemia, fatigue, nerve damage, stomach problems, a smooth tongue, or very sensitive skin. Some people have a medical problem called pernicious anemia in which vitamin B-12 is not absorbed from the intestines properly. They are missing a body chemical called intrinsic factor that comes from the stomach lining. Others have a diseased intestine or have had a large part of their stomachs or intestines removed. These conditions require treatment with vitamin B-12 injections.

Alcohol is metabolized DIFFERENTLY than other foods and beverages.

True

Alcohol is metabolized differently than other foods and beverages. Under normal conditions, your body gets its energy from the calories in carbohydrates, fats and proteins that need to be slowly digested in the stomachóbut not when alcohol is present. When alcohol is consumed, it gets special privileges and needs no digestion. The alcohol molecules diffuse through the stomach wall as soon as they arrive and can reach the brain and liver in minutes. This reaction is slightly slowed when there is also food in your system, but as soon as the mixed contents enter the small intestine, the alcohol grabs first place and is absorbed quickly. The alcohol then arrives at the liver for processing. The liver places all of its attention on the alcohol. Therefore, the carbohydrates (glucose) and dietary fats are just changed into body fat, waiting to be carried away for permanent fat storage in the body

You can make Wendy's Southwest Taco Salad healthier by ditching the dressing and tortilla strips.

Although snoring may be harmless for most people, it can be a symptom of a sleep apnea (especially if it is accompanied by severe daytime sleepiness). Sleep apnea is characterized by pauses in breathing that prevent air from flowing into or out of a sleeping personís airways.

Short spurts of exercise, when they accumulate, have been shown to share similar benefits of longer workouts. Learn more about how Small Bits of Fitness Add Up.

Eating soup before your meal can help you consume fewer total calories during your meal?

Soup may curb your appetite. Studies show that people who eat broth or vegetable-based soups (not creamy or high-fat ones) as the first course of a meal consume fewer total calories during their meal. In fact, study participants consumed 20% fewer calories when they started their meal with soup!

Sensitivities to specific allergens (such as pollen) are inherited?


True
emoticon False




Sensitivities to specific allergens are not inherited, but the tendency to develop allergies can be traced back to your parents. If your mother was allergic to dust mites for example, you might also develop allergies--but not necessarily to the same substance. If one of your parents had allergies, you have a one in three chance of also developing an allergy. This risk jumps as high as 75% if both of your parents had allergies.

During one hour of vigorous exercise, the average person loses one quart (32 ounces) of water through sweat! However, drinking water before and after exercise is just as important. Read more about Drinking Water During Workouts.

Strength training helps reduce the risk of diabetes?


emoticon True
False




Regular strength training at a moderate intensity helps prevent diabetes in a number of ways. First and foremost, lifting weights helps improve the way the body processes sugar. Researchers have also found that weight lifting helps to improve insulin sensitivity and blood glucose control. Additionally, as stated above, resistance training improves heart health by controlling cholesterol and blood pressure, both of which play a role in diabetes management

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.

Everything you eat after 7 p.m. is more likely to be stored as fat.

False

It's a myth that eating late will make you gain weight. Your body doesn't know what time it is when you eat, and it metabolizes all calories the same way, regardless of the time of day they are eaten. There is no real concern with eating late or close to bedtime, unless you find it disrupts your sleep or makes you feel a sick when you eat.

Which of the following supplements can help prevent colds and the flu?


Echinacea
Vitamin C
Zinc
All of the above

Although each of these substances have been linked to cold prevention in some studies, but the jury's still out on the best role for herbal and vitamin supplements. According to respected organizations (such as the National Institutes of Health and the National Lung Association), there is no conclusive evidence that supports the notion that taking large doses of vitamin C, zinc, or Echinacea will prevent colds. However, these nutrients may reduce the severity or duration of some symptoms. Always talk to your doctor before taking any supplements.

True or False: Cooking veggies in water can decrease the amount of nutrients in them?


emoticon True
False


Most veggies retain their shape and texture even after cooking. But overcooking them (or cooking them the wrong way) can sap their nutrients. Heating veggies until mushy--especially in water--is more than unpalatable; it's a surefire way to decrease the nutrients available in the vegetables. Cook your veggies lightly and quickly to help retain water-soluble nutrients like vitamin C and many B vitamins.

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.

According to researchers, a larger hippocampus is associated with better performance on spatial reasoning and other cognitive tasks.

You pack a lunch that contains a turkey and cheese sandwich. How soon must you put your lunch in the refrigerator so that it remains safe to eat?

2 hours

If you pack a lunch that includes perishable food items--meat and cheese sandwiches, leftovers, salads, or dairy foods--don't let more than two hours pass from the time you make your lunch at home to the time you put it in the office refrigerator. The same rule applies if you go out for lunch and bring back fast food, carry out, or doggy bag.

You can develop osteoarthritis by being physically inactive or physically overactive?


emoticon True
False




You are more likely to develop osteoarthritis if you are physically inactive or physically overactive. A lack of exercise weakens muscles and bones, decreasing flexibility and support at the joints, which eventually leads to pain and stiffness. At the same time, over-exercising can also be harmful to the joints. Stick with moderate exercise to strengthen the joints, decrease pain and improve range of motion.

Because caffeine is a stimulant, it does speed up metabolism, but the effect is only minimal and very short term.

emoticon Fixed



Fixed resistance provides a constant amount of resistance throughout the full range of motion (ROM) of a strength training exercise. This means that the amount of resistance/weight you are lifting does not change during the movement. For example, during a 10-pound curl, you are lifting 10 pounds throughout the motion. Fixed resistance helps to strengthen all the major muscle groups in the body. Dumbbells provide fixed resistance.

Women should lift light weights for more repetitions to avoid bulking up?


True
emoticon False




While on a weight lifting program, the right hormones (testosterone) are necessary in order to bulk up. Womenís testosterone levels are much lower than menís, 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! Women, in fact, are more likely to tone up from strength training rather than 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. Learn how to Add Strength Training for Lean Muscles.
