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.

True or False: Your body needs an adequate amount of carbohydrates to be able to burn fat.

True

For fat to be metabolized properly, carbohydrates must be present. The basic message is simple when it comes to selecting the amount and type of carbohydrate foods. Carbohydrates should make up 45% - 65% of the total daily calories in a healthy diet. At least 130 grams of carbohydrate should be included in the diet to prevent ketosis. Whenever possible, replace highly processed/refined grains, cereals, and sugars with minimally processed whole-grain products. For optimal energy and nutrition, learn The Truth about Carbohydrates.

1) True or False: Oats are naturally gluten-free
True
Oats are gluten-free, but the processing of oats usually contaminates them with other gluten-containing foods, so only oats that are specially labeled as gluten-free are safe for people with sensitivities.

2) How many colds does the average adult catch each year?
2-4

Adults usually catch a cold 2-4 times each year, but children can get sick more often, with about 6-10 colds per year.

3) True or False: Health problems such as obesity, diabetes, hypertension and depression are UNRELATED to the amount and quality of a person's sleep.
False

Studies have found a relationship between the quantity and quality of one's sleep and many health problems. For example, insufficient sleep affects growth hormone secretion that is linked to obesity; as the amount of hormone secretion decreases, the chance for weight gain increases. Blood pressure usually falls during the sleep cycle. However, interrupted sleep can adversely affect this normal decline, leading to hypertension and cardiovascular problems. Research has also shown that insufficient sleep impairs the body's ability to use insulin, which can lead to the onset of diabetes. More and more scientific studies are showing correlations between poor and insufficient sleep and disease.

What type of stretching should always be avoided?

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.

1) True or False: Because they are high in cholesterol, eggs, especially the yolks, should be avoided at all costs.
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, itís important to include them! Most of the vitamins and minerals, as well as 40% of the protein, call the yolk home.

2) True or False: Aerobic exercise decreases HDL cholesterol.
False

HDL cholesterol is the "good" cholesterol. Aerobic exercise increases HDL (good) cholesterol and decreases LDL (bad) cholesterol.

3) True or False: Research shows that you are more likely to receive accurate weight loss advice on high-activity message boards like SparkPeople's.
True

When it comes to weight loss advice, a study published in the American Journal of Medicine (July 2007) says that Internet users tend to receive accurate answers when they ask questions in high-volume online forums. The study also recommends that health professionals refer their patients to high-volume forums, like SparkPeople.com's Message Boards for weight loss advice. Read more about this study here.

1) Which of the following best describes calisthenics?
Body weight exercises

Calisthenics are exercises that use your own body weight in lieu of outside or added resistance. You can use the weight of your own body to develop muscle, but using body weight alone is less effective for developing larger muscles and greater strength. However, calisthenics adequately improve general muscular fitness and are sufficient to improve muscle tone and maintain oneís current level of muscular strength. Examples include: pushups, crunches, dips, pull ups, lunges, and squats, just to name a few.

2) The average American family throws away _______________ worth of food per year.
$1300-2300

According to The Natural Resources Defense Council, "American families throw out approximately 25 percent of the food and beverages they buy. The cost estimate for the average family of four is $1,365 to $2,275 annually."

3) True or False: If you're not active or exercising after eating a meal or snack, the food you eat will turn into body fat.
False

Your body is constantly burning calories to perform physiological functions that keep your body alive and healthy (digestion, respiration, brain activity, etc.), so your body needs fuel from food and uses it all day long, even if you're not physically active. This is called your Resting Metabolic Rate, and it "runs" even when you're asleep.

Which of the following is NOT a good nutrition strategy for type 2 diabetics?

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.

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

A b c only

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.

True or False: Snoring can be a symptom of sleep apnea.

True
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. 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.

How high should you elevate your heart rate during an aerobic (cardio) workout?



The recommended heart rate range for aerobic exercise is 60-85% of your maximum heart rate. This range is called the target heart rate (THR) zone. This range is ideal for the general health benefits that come with exercise, and for weight loss. You can use your THR, the "Talk Test" or Perceived Exertion to make sure you're working out in a good intensity level (not too easy, not too hard). For more information on measuring your exercising intensity using the methods above, read our Reference Guide to Exercise Intensity.

1) Where is most of the body's serotonin located?
In the gastrointestinal tract

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.

2) True or False: Untreated depression can lead to a weakened immune system.
True

Left untreated, depression can last for weeks, months or even years and increase the risk of other health problems and even death. Untreated depression can lead to a weakened immune system, resulting in more and longer-lasting illnesses.

3) What is the best way to prevent the flu?
Get a flu shot (only it is not, our dept of health have found it doesn't work in most cases)

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. For more tips to beat the flu once you have it, click here.

True or False: When participating in regular exercise, you should always take 1-2 rest days per week to repair your muscles
True
Recovery is the time your body uses to adapt to the stresses you've put on it, as well as repair tissues that were damaged during your workouts. If you avoid rest days and don't give your muscles and joints a chance to recover, you'll continue to break the body down instead of making it stronger. A good rule of thumb is to allow for 1-2 rest days per week. This doesn't mean you have to sit on the couch all day and do nothing. It's OK to do some light activity, like go for a walk or do an easy yoga session. But your activity shouldn't be intense or challenging. Your body needs the time to rest and repair.

1) How often should you strength train with each major muscle group?

2-3 times a week
Aim to train each muscle group at least two times per week, and up to three if you have the time or are more advanced. One day per week may help you maintain your current level of strength, but it will not be enough to build muscle. It is important to rest 1-2 days in between working out the same muscle(s). Rest days give the muscles time to repair themselves from small tears that occur during strength training, and this is how you get stronger. Check out SparkPeople's Reference Guide to Strength Training for more.

2) True or False: It's normal for people to become depressed as they get older.

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.

3) 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: If you exercise regularly, it's possible to reduce your cholesterol even if you don't lose weight. T

Several studies show widespread improvements in cholesterol levels are related to the amount of activity and not the intensity of exercise. The more minutes you exercise per week, the more your cholesterol levels will improve, even if accompanied by a minimal weight change.

True or False: A vitamin E deficiency is common in the U.S.
Because it is abundant in many foods, a deficiency of vitamin E is rare. Vitamin E is found in a variety of foods. The best sources include wheat germ and wheat germ oil, soybean, corn, safflower and cottonseed oil. Good sources include margarine, mayonnaise, salad dressings, nuts, seeds, peanuts, and peanut butter. Fair sources include whole grains, corn, beef liver, leafy-green vegetables, fish and eggs.

1) True or False: 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.

2) True or False: The only way your body can store energy from food is in the form of body fat.

False I had to laugh at this one

Your body can store energy from food for future use in two ways: 1) as fat and 2) as muscle fuel (called glycogen). Its first priority is to fill its glycogen tanks, because glycogen is the body's primary source of energy for physical activity. Once your glycogen stores are filled and the rest of the body's energy needs are covered, all the extra energy from your food will be stored as body fat.

3) What level of serum (blood) cholesterol is considered healthy?

Below 200 mg/dL
Serum (blood) cholesterol flows through the bloodstream. Your body manufactures most of its blood cholesterol, but it absorbs some from the foods you eat. A total blood cholesterol level of less than 200 mg/dL is a healthy goal. The amount of cholesterol you have in your blood is partly genetic (some people tend to have high levels, while other people tend to have low levels). But your habits (smoking, diet, exercise, etc.) affect the level of cholesterol in your blood too

One 5-Hour Energy drink contains 157 milligrams of caffeine. What is the recommended daily limit for adult caffeine intake?

For a healthy adult, one 5-Hour Energy Drink per day doesnít present any major potential health risk. The drink provides about 157 milligrams of caffeine, based on a Forbes-commissioned lab test. Remember that the recommendation for caffeine intake for the healthy adult is no more than 400 milligrams daily. Now, if you are downing several 5-Hour Energy Drinks, along with cups of coffee and cans of soda, you could be easily exceeding the recommendation, which may result in an overstimulated heart and body.

1) 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 fa

2) A potassium deficiency can lead to
High blood pressure wrong I click on the wrong one

On average, the potassium intake in the United States is well below the recommended intake level. This may be a contributing factor in high blood pressure. Also, with prolonged diarrhea, vomiting, or laxative use, a potassium deficiency may occur. Kidney problems may also cause severe loss. A deficiency will result in the following symptoms: weakness, appetite loss, nausea, and fatigue.


3) True or False: Quitting smoking can make you irritable due to a drop in serotonin levels.
True
It's true! Nicotine increases serotonin, the neurotransmitter that leads to relaxed and calm feelings. When the levels of serotonin decrease, we end up feeling irritable, cranky and stressed. To complicate matters, carbohydrates increase our serotonin levels, which explains the cravings for starchy or sweet foods.

4) 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.

1) How is blood pressure measured?
mm HG

Blood pressure, the force of blood against artery walls, is measured in millimeters of mercury (mm HG).


2) What percentage of lung capacity does the average person use while at rest?
15%

Few people use their lungs to their full capacity. It has been reported that at rest, people use just 10%-15% of their actual lung capacity, usually a result of quick, shallow breaths that make the chest rise and fall.

3) What is the role of insulin in the body?
It helps convert glucose (from food) into usable energy

Under normal circumstances, the glucose (sugar) levels in your blood rise after you eat. In response, the body produces a hormone called insulin, which helps the body convert the glucose in your bloodstream into usable energy.

Who is most likely to experience IBS?
Women are at least twice as likely to experience IBS as men. Due to fluctuating levels of hormones, women are more likely to experience IBS symptoms during or around the time of their menstrual periods. Younger to middle-aged adults are most likely to experience IBS. In fact, half of all people with IBS will first develop symptoms before they are 35 years old, with 90% of IBS sufferers developing symptoms before age 50.

In the U.S., how far does the average food item travel before it reaches your table?

Over 1000 miles

Our existing system of food transportation and distribution requires enormous amounts of energy and resources. Before reaching your table, the average food item in the United States will travel 1,300 miles! This is one of many reasons that environmentalists and nutritionists alike recommend eating locally grown food as much as possible.

1)How many servings of ice cream are in a single pint?
4
A pint of ice cream is not a single serving; it's FOUR servings. If you eat an entire pint, you have to multiply the number of calories, fat grams, etc. listed on the label by four. Stick to portions the size of half a tennis ball, and always scoop your ice cream into a small bowl instead of eating it directly from the container to prevent overeating.


2) What is the "golden rule" for weight loss?

"Calories in vs. calories out" is the golden rule for effective weight loss. To lose weight, a person must eat fewer calories than he or she burns. For more information, click here.

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

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.

3) Of adults with arthritis, how many take part in a regular exercise program?

2/3
According to a study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, adults with arthritis aren't exercising enough. According to researchers, more than one-third of adults with arthritis do NOT exercise at all (meaning approximately 2/3 do), and people with arthritis are less likely than people without arthritis to meet recommended levels of physical activity (30 minutes of moderate activity most days of the week). Exercise is an important part of an arthritis management program. To learn more, read Managing Arthrit

4) Which type of produce has the most vitamin C per serving?
Red bell peppers

One serving of red bell pepper delivers a whopping 190 mg of vitamin C! Broccoli contains 132 mg, kiwi boasts 137 mg, and oranges come in last with 83 mg. According to the National Institutes of Health, the daily recommended value for vitamin C is 90 mg for men and 75 mg for women, so one serving of red bell pepper will more than cover your needs.

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!

3) 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.

Very large doses of vitamin C can cause what problem?
Diarrhea

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.

What is Acai?
A berry from Brazil

Acai (pronounced ah-sigh-EE) is a berry from Brazil that's been widely touted in the United States for its health-enhancing powers. In addition to removing toxins and increasing energy, the alleged benefits include burning fat, reducing food cravings, and boosting metabolism. Typically the berry is sold in the form of juice (for as much as $40 a bottle), capsules, or powder. What supposedly makes acai berries so beneficial is their high levels of antioxidants, which help fight harmful free radicals.

True
Minerals are very stable. They cannot be destroyed by light, water, heat or food handling processes. In fact, the little bit of ash that remains when a food is completely burned is its mineral content!

True or False: Obesity may prevent the immune system from functioning properly.

True

Research performed by scientists at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Medicine has shown that obesity prevents the immune system from functioning properly, increasing its vulnerability to infection. In the study, obese mice were 50 percent less capable of killing the flu virus, compared to lean mice. The researchers believe that the same holds true in humans. To find out how many calories you need to maintain or lose weight, refer to your customized Nutrition Tracker.

Which of the following vitamins is water-soluble?
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.
