If you consume a late-night meal and then go to bed without exercising, what happens to the food you eat?

Your body doesn't know what time it is when you eat, so it doesn't metabolize food any differently at night than it does in the morning.

True or False: Taking (or eating) extra vitamin B-12 can boost your energy levels.
False
A lack of vitamin B-12 may lead to fatigue, but taking extra B-12 does not boost energy levels. A water-soluble vitamin, your body excretes excess vitamin B-12.

Eggs contain all of the following vitamins EXCEPT:
Vitamin C
Eggs provide some of every vitamin above with the exception of vitamin C. They are one of the few dietary sources of vitamin D and are an excellent source of B vitamins. You'll also get several of the minerals your body needs to function, including calcium and phosphorus for bone health.

True or False: Chronic stress can literally make you sick.
True
According to the National Institutes of Health, hormones (like cortisol) that hang around during chronic stress can put us at risk for obesity, heart disease, cancer, and a variety of other illnesses. Take time out of your day to do a relaxing activity you enjoy, like journaling, meditating, going for a jog, or talking to a friend on the phone. Return refreshed and kick your stressors to the curb!

About ____% of the calories you consume post-workout should come from fat.
15%
Fat doesn't play a big role in post-workout recovery, and eating too much fat after a workout won't help your weight control or fitness endeavors. Only 15% (or less) of your post-workout calories should come from fatóthat's less than 10 grams.

How soon after working out should you eat?

The ideal time to eat after a workout is within 30 minutes to two hours, when your body is ready and waiting to top off its fuel tanks to prepare for your next workout. But if your appetite or schedule doesnít allow you to eat a meal right after your exercise session, don't panic. Your body can still replace your muscle fuel over the next 24 hours, as long as you're eating enough food to support your activity

True or False: 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).

You logged extra time on the treadmill this morning and weighed yourself after. The scale dropped 2 pounds. Why?
You lost 2 pounds of water from sweating
Weight loss isn't immediate. If you weigh less directly after a workout it's because you've lost some water weight through sweating--not because you instantly lost fat.

True or False: Sunscreen blocks your body's ability to make vitamin D when exposed to sunlight.
True
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.

Lower than recommendations
The recommended intake of potassium for adult males and females is 4.7 grams each day. Most adults receive only 2.1 to 3.2 grams daily. 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.

Which of the following dietary habits does NOT contribute to high blood pressure?

High calcium

A diet high in sodium, saturated fat, and cholesterol, and low in fiber, whole foods, and minerals (potassium, magnesium, calcium) can increase blood pressure. Eating a low-sodium, low-fat diet that is rich in whole foods, fiber and minerals like calcium can help. This eating plan, known as the DASH Diet, has been proven to lower blood pressure. Moderate to heavy drinking (more than 1-2 drinks daily) can dramatically increase blood pressure and other health risks. Health experts recommend no more than one drink a day for women, and no more than two drinks per day for men.

What is the best way to prevent the flu?
Get a flu shot
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: Pilates only works your core.
False
While Pilates does build core strength, Mr. Pilates always emphasized that his exercises were for the whole body. He believed the more muscles you use to perform a movement, the more efficient the movement would be. This creates a system of functional strength that applies to all movements. The Pilates system teaches a balance of strength and flexibility, or, "the uniform development of our bodies as a whole," Pilates often said.

The blood pressure-lowering benefits of exercise can be observed how soon after starting a workout program?
Within hours
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.

Wheat bran, whole grains, fruits and vegetables are good sources of which type of fiber?
Insoluble fiber (Got it right for once)
Insoluble fiber is found in foods like wheat bran, whole grains and all vegetables and fruits. It is often called roughage or bulk because it keeps the digestive system running smoothly. This helps with constipation, hemorrhoids, and other digestive problems. It may help to prevent some types of cancer.

Which of the following foods contain cholesterol?
A, B, C, D and E only
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.

What type of stretching should always be avoided?
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.

n order for exercise to improve your cholesterol levels, it must be:
None of the above

Exercise can increase your HDL (good) levels while lowering your LDL (bad) cholesterol. You'll be happy to know that you don't need to spend countless hours in the gym to achieve the heart-health benefits of getting active. The American Heart Association recommends 30 minutes of exercise on most days of the week.

Even moderate activity, if done daily, can make a difference. Research shows cholesterol improvements are related to the amount of activity and not to the intensity of the exercise. Even if you lose little weight, exercise can help you improve your cholesterol levels. Heart-healthy changes can occur inside your body before any benefits are seen on the outside.

Although everyone should consult their health care provider before starting an exercise program, in most cases, you won't need medical supervision to exercise safely and effectively.

A thiamin (vitamin B-1) deficiency can lead to
Beriberi
In the United States, a deficiency of thiamin is rare because refined grains are enriched with this nutrient. Before refined grain products were enriched, a thiamin deficiency could result in a disease called beriberi. Signs of beriberi include loss of appetite, constipation, muscle weakness, pain or tingling in the arms and legs, swelling of the feet, mental depression, memory problems, shortness of breath, and fast heartbeat. Thiamin deficiency does occur in alcoholics because of impaired absorption.

Can food labels that list "0" trans fats actual contain some trans fats?
Yes
Any food that lists "hydrogenated oil" on the ingredients list does contain trans fats, even if the label says zero. A labeling loophole allows any food that contains fewer than 0.5 grams of trans fat per serving to list "0" grams of trans fat on the label, so always check the ingredients list!

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

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.

Which of the following is an appropriate warm up?

Which of the following is an appropriate warm up?

A - Stretching before exercise
B - Walking at a moderate pace for 5 minutes
C - Doing several lightweight repetitions of a strength training exercise
All of the above
A and B only
B and C only. Correct

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?

If you consume a late-night meal and then go to bed without exercising, what happens to the food you eat?
It is metabolized the same way as if you ate it earlier in the day
Your body doesn't know what time it is when you eat, so it doesn't metabolize food any differently at night than it does in the morning.
