True or False: Hemp seeds contain healthy Omega-3 fatty acids?


emoticon True
False




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.

True or False: Simply walking for 15 minutes per day (without changing your diet) can prevent weight gain?


False





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.

Sodium is found mainly in blood plasma and in the fluids outside the body cells. It helps regulate the movement of body fluids in and out of the body cells. Sodium helps your muscles and heart to relax. It is involved in the transmission of nerve impulses and helps to regulate blood pressure.

Which drive-thru taco salad (with dressing) contains fewer calories?


Taco Bell's Fiesta Taco Salad
emoticon 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.

Snoring can be a symptom of sleep apnea?


emoticon True
False




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 person’s airways. People with sleep apnea awaken frequently during the night gasping for breath. Snoring on a frequent or regular basis has also been directly associated with high blood pressure.

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.

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

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.

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.

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?

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. Clinical research does not show a significant weight loss with the use of caffeine-containing supplements. Therefore, save your money and leave those supplements (which can contain up to 300 mg of caffeine per dose) on the store shelf.

Who is more likely to develop high blood pressure?


Men
Women
emoticon It depends on the person's age




Your risk of developing high blood pressure increases as you age. Men over 45 and women over 55 are more likely to have high blood pressure than their younger counterparts. Up to age 55, men are more prone to high blood pressure than women, but after menopause, a woman's risk increases. By age 75, high blood pressure is more prevalent among women than men.

What kind of resistance do dumbbells provide?


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.

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


True

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 lie down to go to bed.

Vitamin D is known as the "sunshine vitamin" because it is made in your skin when the ultraviolet light hits your skin. However, sunscreen can inhibit the body's ability to make vitamin D. If you eat a balanced diet and get outside in the sunshine at least 1.5 to 2 hours a week, you should be getting all the vitamin D you need.

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. 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! 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.

Appetite and hunger are one in the same?


True
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.

Vitamins A, D, E, and K are fat-soluble, meaning that dietary fat must be available for your body to absorb those nutrients. So if you're eating raspberries, spinach and carrots, great!

Insulin resistance occurs in the early stages of type 2 diabetes. What does insulin resistance mean?


emoticon The body's cells don't use insulin properly
Glucose in the bloodstream doesn't respond to insulin
The pancreas resists the signals to produce insulin




In the early stages of type 2 diabetes, the pancreas is still manufacturing insulin, but for some reason the cells of the body are not using it properly--a condition known as insulin resistance. In response, the pancreas produces more and more insulin, wearing itself out and eventually losing its ability to produce insulin to keep blood glucose levels in the normal range.

Strength training helps reduce the risk of diabetes.

True

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.

True

Bed rest is not a good treatment for back pain. When you are in bed for extended periods of time, you can lose muscle strength which is actually bad for your back. Bed rest should not be used for more than two days if you can help it. Want to relieve back pain easily? Just get moving! Normal daily activity can actually help relieve back pain in most cases. Remember to always consult with your doctor to find out which options are best for you. Learn more about back pain by watching this short video.

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

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.

False





You may have high blood pressure and not even know it. While 50 million Americans suffer from this affliction, 33 percent don't even know they have it, and 70 percent don't have it under control. High blood pressure is often referred to as the "silent killer." In general, it does not directly cause symptoms. When blood pressure is very high, it may cause symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, fatigue and ringing in the ears. However, it often causes no symptoms. The only way to know where you stand is to have your blood pressure checked by a qualified professional.

1) Glucose is the only source of energy used by the brain.

True

Explanation: Glucose (typically made from carbohydrates) is necessary for the regulation of nerve tissue and is the only source of energy for the brain.

2) If you don't have allergies by the time you're 30, you won't develop them later in life.

False

Because repeated exposure to substances can prompt an allergic reaction, you are more likely to develop allergies as you get older.

3) Where is most of the body's serotonin located?

In the gastrointestinal tract

Explanation:
Ninety-five percent of the body's serotonin is located in the gastrointestinal tract. If levels of this important neurotransmitter are off balance, bowels problems and IBS symptoms can result.

Because they are high in cholesterol, eggs, especially the yolks, should be avoided at all costs?


True
emoticon False




In the past, people thought that because eggs are high in dietary cholesterol, they were not a heart-healthy protein option. We now understand that saturated and trans fats are more responsible for raising your cholesterol levels than dietary cholesterol, and an egg a day (which has a mere 1.5 grams saturated fat) is a healthy habit for most people. Even though most of the fat is found in the yolks, it’s important to include them! Most of the vitamins and minerals, as well as 40% of the protein, call the yolk home.

Wearing ankle or wrist weights is a safe way to add intensity to your walks?


True
emoticon False





Avoid wearing ankle and wrist weights. They can alter your normal movement patterns and increase the risk of injury. If you must add weight to your workout, a weighted vest helps distribute weight more evenly and allows you to move more freely and normally than weights attached to your extremities.

Daytime sleepiness always means a person isn’t getting enough sleep?


True
emoticon False


An individual has excessive daytime sleepiness when she feels very drowsy during the day and has an urge to fall asleep when she should be fully alert and awake. The condition, which can occur even after getting enough nighttime sleep, can be a sign of an underlying medical condition or sleep disorder such as narcolepsy or sleep apnea. These problems can often be treated, and you should discuss your symptoms with a physician.

Hemp seeds contain healthy Omega-3 fatty acids?

False




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.

High levels of HDL are healthier than low levels of HDL
It stands for High Density Lipoprotein




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.

Why should milk be stored in opaque (non-clear) containers?

Light destroys nutrients in the milk

Milk is (or should be) stored in opaque plastic or cardboard containers, not clear glass, because light can destroy nutrients in the milk. Ultraviolet light, including sunlight, can quickly destroy riboflavin, a nutrient found in milk, for example.

Spacing meals evenly throughout the day
Eating protein with every meal and snack
Increasing fiber intake
Using sugar substitutes instead of sugar
emoticon Eating Fat With Every Meal & Snack




While all of these other strategies are important for diabetics, eating fats at every meal or snack is not. Certain fats can enhance health, and fat can also slow carbohydrate absorption, preventing spikes in blood sugar. But diabetics need to watch their fat intake and keep it at moderate levels. Therefore, eating fat at every meal and snack is typically not advised. Eating Well with Type 2 Diabetes offers more tips.

What type of stretching should always be avoided?


Passive stretching
Assisted stretching
Fast-paced yoga stretching
Dynamic stretching
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.

How much scientific evidence is there to suggest that dairy aids in weight loss?


Good evidence
No Evidence
emoticon Weak Evidence



Some observational studies had found that people who consumed more calcium—whether through supplements or dairy products—tended to be thinner than those who got less. Also, several small, short- term studies showed that subjects put on a high-dairy, reduced-calorie diet lost more weight and fat than low-dairy dieters. All were conducted by a dairy-funded researcher at the University of Tennessee who had patented the dairy weight-loss claim and sold licensing rights to the dairy industry. After other scientists expressed skepticism and consumer activists cried foul with the Federal Trade Commission, the dairy industry decided to suspend its campaign "until further research provides stronger, more conclusive evidence of an association between dairy consumption and weight loss." Well, there's now further research, including several clinical trials, and overall it shows no greater weight or fat loss among subjects on high-dairy diets.
