Sorry this is late. The weekend became a blur. Goodies will be coming!

Correct Answer: A & B only
Explanation from Spark:
Being physically active can boost your metabolism and eating at regular intervals can help prevent your body from storing calories you eat as fat. It's wise to eat moderate, not low, amounts of carbohydrates and healthy fats. Eating more protein than your body needs can result in fat storage—any type of calorie (from protein, fat or carbs) can be stored as fat.
