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.

How accurate are 'skinfold' body fat tests that use callipers?
98% emoticon
The American College of Sports Medicine states that skinfold measurements, when performed by a trained, skilled tester, are up to 98% accurate. Because of the consistency in results, the high success rate, and the low margin of error, this is generally accepted as the best field test, outside of clinical testing, such as hydrostatic weighing.

Vegans need to take supplemental vitamin B-12.
True emoticon
Vegans, also known as strict vegetarians, omit all meat and animal products (eggs, dairy, etc.) from their diets. Because vitamin B-12 only occurs naturally in animal foods like meat, dairy and eggs, vegans must supplement their B-12 intake with pill supplements or foods that have been fortified with vitamin B-12.

______________ lowers blood pressure, decreases the stress hormone cortisol, and increases pain tolerance?
Oxytocin emoticon
When we experience friendly, affectionate touch, our bodies release oxytocin, which is sometimes called the love hormone. Oxytocin's effects include lowering blood pressure, decreasing the stress-related hormone cortisol and increasing pain tolerance. It is released through friendly touch, including contact between breastfeeding moms and their babies, cuddling couples and even pets and their owners.

Muscle weighs more than fat.
False.

A pound is a pound BUT muscle is condensed and takes up less space so you look slimmer, not to mention feel stronger, have more energy, and metabolize your calories more efficiently.

Individuals who do not absorb vitamin B-12 properly might have what condition?
Permicious anemia emoticon
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.

On average, a large popcorn (which contains 20 cups) boasts a mind-boggling 100 grams of fat—the equivalent of more than six fast food hamburgers. With about 1,300 calories, that large popcorn packs almost a full day’s supply of calories for the average dieter.

Strength training builds stronger muscles, but what else does it help strengthen? Tendons, ligaments, bones, joints (all of the above) emoticon
Regular strength training increases the size and strength of the muscle fibers. It also strengthens the tendons, ligaments, and bones. All of these changes have a positive impact on your physical fitness, appearance, and metabolism, while reducing the risk of injury and decreasing joint and muscle pain.

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.

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

Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the leading cause of death in the United States for both men and women.
True emoticon
Nearly 70% of Americans don't get enough exercise, yet inactivity is a major risk factor for developing coronary artery disease (CAD). CAD is caused by deposits of fatty substances, cholesterol, calcium and other substances in the inner lining of the arteries that supply blood to the heart muscle. This build-up makes the arteries narrowed or blocked, and when oxygen-rich blood can't reach the heart, the result is chest pain or a heart attack. Over time, CAD can weaken the heart muscle and lead to heart failure.
While CAD is the most common type of heart disease and the leading cause of death in the United States for both men and women, the good news is that lifestyle changes—like exercise!—can help prevent or treat CAD in most people.

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

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.

How many aerobic (cardio) exercise sessions should you aim for each week?
At least 3 emoticon
When it comes to cardio, aim for a minimum of 3 days per week with no more than 2 days between sessions. Gradually work your way up to 5 or 6 days per week. Frequency is especially important when it comes to weight loss. The more you exercise, the more calories you will burn. But don't forget the importance of rest and recovery. Give yourself at least 1 to 2 days off each week. SparkPeople's Reference Guide to Aerobic Exercise explains everything you need to know about cardio.

Frozen vegetables have fewer nutrients than fresh vegetables
False emoticon
Frozen veggies sometimes have a bad reputation, but they actually have just as many nutrients as the fresh stuff. In fact, frozen vegetables hold onto nutrients longer than fresh produce since freezing can lock in nutrients more efficiently than canning or refrigeration methods.

Very large doses of vitamin C can cause what problem?
Diarrhea emoticon
Vitamin C is water-soluble, so the body excretes any excess consumed. However, very large doses may cause kidney stones and diarrhea. The Tolerable Upper Intake Level is 2,000 milligrams for both adult males and females.

To build greater muscle strength, you should do ___ repetitions of each exercise?
Both A & D emoticon
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.

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