Beta-carotene is a form of which vitamin?
Vitamin A
Your body can get vitamin A in two forms: retinols and beta-carotene. Retinols are found in foods that come from animals such as meat, milk fortified with A, fish oil and eggs. Bete-carotene is found in red, yellow, and orange vegetables and fruits, and many dark-green leafy vegetables.

True or False: Americans eat more ice cream per year than any other country
False
The average American licks her way through almost 5 gallons of the ice cream each year, according to the Canadian Dairy Info Centre, but New Zealanders, at 6 gallons a year, eat more!

Some site say this is wrong but SP says false

How many calories are in a bowl of New England Clam Chowder from Panera?
720 calories
According to panerabread.com, a bowl of Panera's New England Clam Chowder contains 720 calories. Yikes--that's half a day's worth of calories for some people!

I bet outside the US nobody has heard of this

Not so much hard but there are two answers

1)What is systolic blood pressure?
Both A and C
Got it wrong

Blood pressure, the force of blood against artery walls, is measured in millimeters of mercury (mm Hg) and recorded as two numbers: systolic (pressure on the arterial walls as the heart contracts) over diastolic (pressure on the arterial walls as the heart relaxes between beats). Both numbers are important.

True or False: People who eat chocolate live longer than people who abstain from it.

True
Researchers at Harvard University believe chocolate may help people live longer! A study tracking older men found that those who ate chocolate lived almost a year longer than those who didn't.

Not so much hard but confusing as there is a blog on SP that says this is false

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

True or False: To lose body fat, it doesn’t matter what you eat as long as you stay within your calorie range. The answer to this one is False according to the trivia folks.

I just finished reading 8 things you always wanted to know about dieting by and it clearly states "While eliminating "non-essential" foods like soda, sugar, sweets and the like can help you lose weight and enhance your health, people lose and maintain weight loss and improve their health simply by cutting back on these foods rather than eliminating them entirely." I think this is a contradiction.

True or False: Vitamin C is only found in fruits.

The answer is false. If you know that the best source of vitamin C is in fruits you have to be sure to read the question carefully and remember that veggies have them too.
I have been thinking of fruits as freggies lately kind of all is the same breath since we make fruit salad that has veggies and vice versa. The best sources of vitamin C include citrus fruits (oranges, grapefruits, tangerines), strawberries, peppers, kiwi, and cantaloupe. Good sources include some green-leafy vegetables, cauliflower, tomatoes, potatoes, and pineapple.

For best results, how long should you hold a stretch? The trivia answer says Research indicates that for optimal benefits you should hold the stretch for 30-60 but other artivcles say 60 - 90 seconds or Research into the subject has shown variable results which depend on age. It surely isn't etched in stone.

An HDL ("good" cholesterol) level of __________has been linked to lower disease risks and protection against heart disease for both men and women.

The right answer is 60 mg per dL

The trivia explanation says According to the American Heart Association, men should aim for HDL levels of 40 mg/dL or greater, and women should aim higher than 50 mg/dL. Levels of 60 mg/dL or more for both genders have been linked to lower disease risks and protection against heart disease.

I have mine measured every year and my doctor only talks about 50 mg/dL for me.. I have never heard of a goal for 60 from anyplace else besides SparkPeople.

True or False: You should always avoid exercise when you have a cold. Trivia answer False

Trivia explanation: If the cold is primarily in your head, it's okay to exercise, just at a lower intensity (provided you feel okay and have enough energy). Once you are feeling 100% again, then you can slowly increase your activity back to your pre-illness level. If your cold is below the neck (in your chest), try to refrain from activity until it clears up. The best thing you can do for your body when it's trying to fight a bug is to give it rest.

Tricky question

Today there was a trivia item about Vegans and B-12 supplements. The correct answer according to trivia is true. However, in sparkpeople article it states:
To ensure you get enough B-12, select eggs and dairy products daily. For those who don't eat eggs or dairy, look for vitamin B-12 in fortified vegan cheese, yogurt, and non-dairy drinks; fortified cereals; fortified veggie burgers and faux meats; and nutritional yeast. Based on personal choice, one of these recommended plans should be used to ensure adequate vitamin B-12 intake.

This leads you to believe that there are many sources of B-12 that are available for vegans without resorting to supplements,

I hate when they expect us to know the better calorie count for two salads that are 50 calories apart and neither is a good choice for lunch. To me the best answer is neither

I like this thread!

Sorry I haven't been around much. I just completed my summer term where I was working 6 days a week and didn't have much time for anything. Except for this coming weekend (when I am going away with my husband and will have no internet access) I should be back pretty regularly.

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

Looking at the explanation this one was pretty tricky. Most studies on this refer to the permanent changes to blood pressure which takes a few months of consistent exercise to see. It is unlikely that lowering your blood pressure for a few hours can truly impact your health. "Within 3 months" was one of the potential answers and probably a better answer to the question.

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.
