Which of the following best characterizes the 'valsalva maneuver'
A breathing issue emoticon
Many people have a tendency to hold their breath during strenuous activity like weight lifting--a big mistake. Known as the valsalva maneuver, this breathing issue, which involves exhaling forcibly without any air actually exiting the body, can limit oxygen delivery to the brain and cause dizziness, fainting, a spike in blood pressure and other complications.

What blood pressure reading is considered optimal?
120/80 emoticon
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. Click here to see a chart that will help you recognize the differences between optimal and high (hypertensive) blood pressure for adults (measured in mm Hg).

Hemp seeds contain healthy Omega-3 fatty acids
True emoticon
Hemp seeds are highly nutritious, containing essential fatty acids, amino acids, and minerals. About a third of the weight of the seed is made up of oil, and most of that oil is the healthy variety: ALA (alpha-linoleic acid, a type of Omega-3 fat) and linoleic acid. These essential fatty acids (EFA's for short) can benefit your health in many ways.

The causes of depression are complex and overlapping. In fact, one true cause is not known. Low serotonin levels are a symptom of depression, but there is no proof that low levels of serotonin actually cause depression.

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

Dietary fiber, starches, and sugars are all digested in the same way
False emoticon
Although it is considered a carbohydrate, dietary fiber is not digested the same way the other two types of carbohydrates (starches and sugars) are. While starches and sugars are broken down into glucose (blood sugar), fiber isn't treated the same way. The fiber you eat passes through the body undigested and helps add bulk to your stool (among other benefits).

Removing the skin from a butter-basted turkey will reduce your caloric intake by about 80 calories.

HDL cholesterol is the healthy kind.
True 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

The only symptom of insomnia is difficulty falling asleep.
False emoticon
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.

Antibiotics can treat a cold or the flu.
False emoticon
When you come down with a cold or the flu, the last thing you should do is take an antibiotic. Most antibiotics only work against infections caused by bacteria, so they won't work against illnesses (like the cold or the flu) that are caused by viruses. Currently, no licensed antibiotics exist for fighting the common cold. Some prescription antibiotics (known as antiviral medications) are available and effective against the flu, but only if they're taken very early in the illness

___ is the painful sensation or state of weakness caused by the need of food. Hunger
emoticon
By definition, hunger is "the painful sensation or state of weakness caused by the need of food." Simply put, hunger is a signal from your body that it needs food for energy. When you're truly hungry, your stomach, brain, or both will give you cues to tell you to eat. Signals from your stomach may be growling, an empty, hollow feeling, or hunger pangs. Your brain may send signals such as a headache, trouble concentrating, irritability or fogginess. Some people even experience physical fatigue when they are hungry. Hunger does not go away over time--it only gets worse. And any food will satisfy your hunger and take the hunger signals away.

Which of the following statements about ALA (Alpha-linolenic acid) is FALSE?
Your body converts it to DHA very efficiently emoticon
ALA is one of three types of Omega-3 fatty acids. It can be found primarily in foods of plant origin, but also in other foods such as beef. The richest source of ALA is flaxseed, but it is also found in hempseed, canola oil, soybeans, soybean oil, pumpkin seeds, pumpkin seed oil, linseeds, walnuts, and walnut oil. Once ingested, the body converts ALA into EPA and DHA, allowing it to be more readily used by the body. However, this conversion isn't very efficient.

Cholesterol is a building block of body cells and hormones. It makes up 50 percent of your nervous system, and is necessary for metabolism. In moderate amounts, it is essential to good health. But the dangers of high cholesterol, including artery blockage and heart disease, are well-documented. Other studies suggest that very low cholesterol levels can also be harmful and dangerous. The key seems to be making sure your body has enough--but not too much.

Some medications can affect your heart rate during exercise.
True emoticon
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.

Wheat bran, whole grains, fruits and vegetables are good sources of which type of fiber?

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.

Natural" is synonymous with "organic" when it comes to food.
False emoticon
The word "natural" is not regulated by the FDA and therefore is very misleading. Sure "natural" brings to mind thoughts of fresh, minimally processed and healthy food, but it means nothing about a food's nutritional content, ingredients, processing, safety, or health effects. Organic, on the other hand, is a regulated term referring to the way a food was grown or raised--without synthetic fertilizers, hormones or antibiotics, for example.

How many calories per gram does alcohol contain?
7 emoticon
Alcohol] is high in calories, second only to fat in calories per gram (fat has 9 calories per gram; alcohol has 7). If you drink alcoholic beverages regularly, they can contribute a lot of calories to your diet, which can slow or stop weight loss, and promote weight gain. To limit the effect of alcohol on your weight, drink alcohol in moderation (defined above) or only on occasion.

Everything you eat after 7 p.m. is more likely to be stored as fat.
False emoticon
It's a myth that eating late will make you gain weight. Your body doesn't know what time it is when you eat, and it metabolizes all calories the same way, regardless of the time of day they are eaten. There is no real concern with eating late or close to bedtime, unless you find it disrupts your sleep or makes you feel a sick when you lie down to go to bed.
