True or False: Your workouts don't have to be continuous. You can break them up throughout the day into smaller segments (at least 10 minutes each) and achieve the same benefits.

Answer from last week: Myth

Strange as it sounds, going too low on calories is a common cause of getting stuck at your current weight despite dieting. Your body is designed to protect you from starvation during times of greatly reduced food availability, and when you eat too little, your body thinks its starving. To compensate, your metabolism will slow down considerably, making it very difficult (or impossible) for you to lose weight. In this state, your body will preferentially burn everything but your stored body fat.

Your best bet is to aim for a weight loss of 1-2 pounds per week through combining a moderate calorie reduction with increased calorie expenditure through exercise. If all the info you entered during your program set-up is accurate, the recommended calorie range you received should be what you need to accomplish this healthy rate of weight loss. To learn how your calorie recommendations are determined, check out Calorie Calculations 101.

Myth. Most of the time that many calories will put a person into starvation mode and will not allow them to lose weight. They are even finding that the extreme dieters on TV now have metabolisms that use many fewer calories because they starved their bodies.

Truth, but ONLY if cutting that many calories still keeps you in your healthy range.

ETA: The quiz you lifted this from says Myth, but goes on to explain why it's not always true.

Since you need to cut about 500 calories from your diet each day to lose a pound a week, then eating 1,000 fewer calories will result in twice the weight loss.

I had an ongoing goal to reach my goal weight. I've had this goal for years. I was able to reach it, finally, in 2016. Guess I need to come up with a new goal. Maybe it should be to not regain too much of my weight now that I've reached my goal.

I never set goals in the sense of New Year's resolutions, but I resolve every year to continue to cook and eat healthily and to walk consistently, and I have met those goals again. I kind of exceeded my expectations because the last 3 months of the year were very challenging work-wise, and I did much better than I had feared.
