The frozen dessert known as 'Italian ice' contains milk, just like ice cream does?
False emoticon
Italian ice (also called Granita) is a mix of juice (or other liquid like coffee), water and sugar, usually in a 4:1 ratio of liquid to sugar. The ices are stirred frequently during freezing to give it a flaky texture. These are almost always fat-free, contain minimal additives and are the lowest in calories of all frozen desserts.

Your ideal post-workout meal or snack should contain about ______% of the calories you burned during your workout
50% emoticon
Ideally, try to eat enough calories to equal 50% of the calories you burned during your workout. So if you burn about 600 calories during your workout, try to eat 300 calories afterward. Don’t worry about undoing the calorie-burning benefits of your workout–that’s not how weight loss works. As long as you're eating within your recommended calorie range (whether for weight loss or maintenance), you'll be on your way to reaching your goals.

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.

How many calories are equal to one pound of body fat?
3,500 emoticon
One pound of body fat is equal to 3,500 calories. That means you have to create a 3,500-calorie deficit through diet and exercise to lose one pound of body fat. To gain a pound, you'd have to consume 3,500 calories more than your body is able to use..

Women should lift light weights for more repetitions to avoid bulking up.
False emoticon
While on a weight lifting program, the right hormones (testosterone) are necessary in order to bulk up. Women’s testosterone levels are much lower than men’s, so in most cases, they are not capable of building large muscles. In fact, since muscle takes up less room than fat, women tend to lose inches when they strength train. So in addition to the physical benefits (increased metabolism, decreased risk of osteoporosis, increased strength), strength training will help you slim down too! Women, in fact, are more likely to tone up from strength training rather than bulk up. Research shows that women can add up to 30% lean muscle and end up looking thinner, feeling stronger and being firmer. No matter how many repetitions you do, you should be lifting a challenging weight and feel muscle fatigue by the end of each set.

By adding exercise to your weight loss program, you'll be able to eat more calories and still lose weight.
Truth emoticon
Remember, to lose weight, you need to create a caloric deficit. You can do this by cutting calories from your diet, by exercising more, or by combining both diet and exercise. Because you need to give you body a proper amount of fuel for energy, nutrients, and to ensure weight loss, it can be hard to cut a large amount of calories by dieting alone. By adding exercise, however, you'll be able to eat more and still meet your goals. Just make sure that you account for all the exercise you do when you set-up your SparkPeople program. This way, you'll get an accurate calorie recommendation for you to lose weight at a healthy rate.

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.

Appetite and hunger are one in the same.
False emoticon
Appetite is not the same thing as hunger; it actually refers to an interest in food. It's often said that someone's appetite can override their hunger and fullness. When some people feel stressed, they could lose their appetite and choose to ignore feelings of hunger. (Others respond the opposite way, eating in response to stress or negative emotions despite a lack of hunger or strong feelings of fullness.) And how many times have you sat down to a delicious meal and continued eating even though you were experiencing sensations of fullness? That, too, is an example of appetite overriding the signals from your body. As you start becoming more aware of hunger signals, do not confuse appetite with physical signs of hunger.

A certain amount of discomfort during exercise is normal and inevitable. After all, you are challenging your body to do more than it is accustomed to. But pain and other symptoms that occur during exercise can be warning signs that something is wrong. You should stop exercising right away if you: Have pain or pressure in the left or middle part of your chest, or in the left side of your neck, left shoulder or left arm; feel dizzy or sick; break out in a cold sweat; have muscle cramps; feel sharp pain in your joints, feet, ankles, or bones; or notice that your heart starts racing or beating irregularly.

emoticon True or False: Very slow weight loss is not beneficial in the long run.

emoticon Answer/Explanation: FALSE! The SparkPeople program is set up to help you safely lose between half a pound and two pounds per week. Studies show that individuals who rapidly lose weight are more likely to gain it back, while those who lost weight slowly are more likely to keep it off long term. So if you’ve lost a few pounds this month—excellent! Don’t discount that because you see someone on T.V. losing 15 pounds in two weeks.

What percentage of antioxidants does olive oil lose after 6 months of storage?

A study from the Journal of Food Science found that olive oil loses 40% of its antioxidants after 6 months of storage. For the maximum nutrient benefit, many foods, including olive oil, must be used within a relatively short amount of time. The moment a food is picked and/or processed it begins to change chemically, altering the flavor, texture, color and even the nutrient content.

Which of the following options will NOT help type 2 diabetics control their blood sugar
Eating less saturated fat emoticon
People with type 2 diabetes can control their blood glucose levels by: losing excess weight, exercising regularly, following a healthy diet (as designed by a registered dietitian or certified diabetes educator) and using medication prescribed by their doctors. Diabetics are encouraged to eat more fiber (25-50 grams daily) to help control blood sugar levels. They are also encouraged to consume less saturated fat. However, this is because diabetics are at increased risk for other diseases (like heart disease), not because saturated fat affects blood glucose levels (which is does not).

emoticon Which of the following can increase the risk of getting a migraine while exercising?

-Exercising at a high intensity
-Quickly increasing your level of exercise intensity
-Becoming dehydrated
-All of the above

Answer/Explanation: emoticon ALL OF THE ABOVE! Regular exercise can help prevent chronic illness, boost your mood and lengthen your lifespan, among a host of other benefits. But while consistent sweat sessions are great for you, they can also trigger head pain if you've increased your workout intensity quickly, worked very intensely or become dehydrated. Overall, regular exercise has been shown to help diminish recurrent headaches, so don't limit your trips to the gym. Instead, keep an eye on your fluid intake, especially when increasing the length or intensity of your sessions.

What are the 4 fat-soluble vitamins?
Vitamins A, D, E and K emoticon
Four vitamins are fat-soluble: A, D, E, and K. Fat-soluble vitamins dissolve in fat. To be carried in your bloodstream and throughout your body, they must be attached to body chemicals made of lipids or fat. Your body is able to store these fat-soluble vitamins in body fat. Getting a new supply each day is not essential. Harmful, toxic levels of the fat-soluble vitamins can occur when excess amounts are consumed on a regular basis, usually from supplements.

Depression can occur when other areas of your life are going well.
True emoticon
People can experience depression even when life is going well. While depression can be triggered by unfortunate life events, that is not always the case.
