What percentage of antioxidants does olive oil lose after 6 months of storage?
40% emoticon
A study from the Journal of Food Science found that olive oil loses 40% of its antioxidants after 6 months of storage. For the maximum nutrient benefit, many foods, including olive oil, must be used within a relatively short amount of time. The moment a food is picked and/or processed it begins to change chemically, altering the flavor, texture, color and even the nutrient content.

How much dietary cholesterol should you consume from foods each day?

Dietary cholesterol is found only in foods of animal origin, such as meat, poultry, fish, eggs, and dairy products. It is not found in plant foods like grains, fruits and vegetables. Individuals should limit their intake of dietary cholesterol to less than 300 milligrams daily

It's important to maintain a regular sleep and wake schedule each day, including weekends.
True emoticon
Your sleep-wake cycle is regulated by a "circadian clock" in your brain and the body's need to balance both sleep time and wake time. A regular waking time in the morning strengthens the circadian function and can help with sleep onset at night. That is also why it is important to keep a regular bedtime and wake time, even on the weekends when there is the temptation to sleep in.

The nutrient content of an egg depends mostly on whether or not the eggs come from free range chickens.
False emoticon
The terms "free-range," "vegetarian-fed" and "organic" are all on egg cartons these days. While free-range does mean the chicken is not caged, it does not necessarily mean that the chicken roams outdoors (it only has access to open space at some point each day). A chicken's feed is what affects the nutritional quality of its eggs. The label "vegetarian-fed" ensure no animal by-products are fed to the chickens laying the eggs, and "organic" means the chicken's feed is organic

For a muscle to get stronger, it has to get bigger.
False emoticon
The amount of force a muscle can generate depends not just on the size of the muscle fibers but also on the number of fibers that can be activated and used. Each time you challenge your muscles to do more than they usually do, they learn to use more of your existing muscle fibers. Muscle fibers won't start getting bigger until after you reach the point where you're activating most of them--and you can gain a lot of strength before you get to that point.

One serving of cooked soybeans contains more omega-3s (in the form of ALA) than some coldwater fish. Tofu, which is made from soybeans, contains Omega-3's, too, but only about one-third as much as the whole cooked beans do.

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

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

According to research studies, which of the following strategies could help you burn more calories than the other?
Running before strength training. emoticon
Research shows that you should do cardio first. Published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research, one study examined how many calories exercisers burned doing one of four workout combinations: running only, strength training only, running followed by strength training, and strength training followed by running. The run-strength training group came out on top with the highest exercise after burn of all.

To make refined or bleached 'white flour,' what part of the wheat kernel is removed?
A and B only emoticon
Bran makes up the outer layers of the grain. It contains B-vitamins, trace minerals and dietary fiber. It's removed when wheat flour is processed (refined and/or bleached) into white flour. Germ is the part of the plant that sprouts to generate a new plant. It has B-vitamins, trace minerals, and some protein. It's also removed when wheat flour is refined to become white flour, which is purely the endosperm of the wheat kernel.

What type of stretching should always be avoided?
Ballistic Stretch emoticon
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.

Residents of developed countries (like the U.S.) are MORE likely to experience allergies than people in developing areas of the world.
True emoticon
Generally speaking, developed countries have much higher incidences of allergies than developing areas of the world. Scientists believe that the clean and sanitized homes of the industrialized world are actually detrimental to the immune system, and that exposure to illness-causing bacteria is necessary for the immune system to function optimally. When your immune system is not challenged by natural foes, it malfunctions and becomes supersensitive to seemingly harmless substances.

Which of the following statements about HDL is FALSE?
It's the unhealthy cholesterol emoticon
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.

Surrounding yourself with people who tend to overeat makes YOU more likely to overeat, too.
True emoticon
Surrounding yourself with people who tend to overeat makes YOU more likely to overeat, too. Researcher Brian Wansink (author of "Mindless Eating") found that we mirror (to a point) the amount that our company consumes. We consciously and/or unconsciously follow the "consumption norm" of those we dine with by emulating how much they eat in order to achieve acceptance. Dr. Wansink's studies reflected this behavior, and it's important to be aware and attempt to make a conscious decision about how much you eat when eating among others.

What is the best way to prevent the flu?
Get a flu shot emoticon
Many doctors and health experts agree that vaccination (the flu shot) is the best way to avoid the flu. Talk to your doctor about whether or not you're a good candidate for flu vaccination. According to the National Sleep Foundation, lack of sleep can impair the effectiveness of the flu shot, so make sure you are well rested and caught up on any missed sleep before you get a vaccination.

Your risk of developing high blood pressure increases as you age.
True emoticon
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.

Vitamin D and calcium work hand in hand to fight the osteoporosis often associated with aging. How much vitamin D do most adults need each day?
400-800 IU emoticon
Just a few minutes of sunlight a day can provide your body with ample amounts of vitamin D, but many of us spend most of our time indoors, especially during the winter months. A daily supplement providing 400-800 IU (international unites) of vitamin D can help to ensure you’re meeting your body’s needs.

Which of the following vitamins is water-soluble?
Vitamin B-12 emoticon
Water-soluble vitamins dissolve in water. They include the B-complex vitamins and vitamin C. They are carried in your bloodstream and are not stored in the body in significant amounts. Your body uses the amount that is needed, and then the extra is excreted in the urine. Since your body does not store water-soluble vitamins, regular intake is necessary. Water-soluble vitamins are also destroyed more easily during food storage, processing and preparation.

The blood pressure-lowering benefits of exercise can be observed how soon after starting a workout program?
Within hours emoticon
According to the American College of Sports Medicine, the blood pressure lowering effects of exercise can be observed as soon as one to three hours after a single 30- 45 minute workout! This response can linger for up to nine hours post-exercise. Permanent blood pressure changes can be seen as early as three weeks to three months after beginning an exercise program.

Strength training helps reduce the risk of diabetes.
True emoticon
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.

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