emoticon True or False: If you're not active or exercising after eating a meal or snack, the food you eat will turn into body fat.

emoticon Explanation: FALSE! Your body is constantly burning calories to perform physiological functions that keep your body alive and healthy (digestion, respiration, brain activity, etc.), so your body needs fuel from food and uses it all day long, even if you're not physically active. This is called your Resting Metabolic Rate, and it "runs" even when you're asleep.

emoticon True or False: Dietary fiber, starches, and sugars are all digested in the same way

emoticon Explanation: FALSE! 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).

Rewarding yourself for completing certain goals each week is an example of:

Explanation: emoticon An Incentive System! Because the inherent benefits of nutritious eating and exercise aren’t always noticeable to the naked eye, it helps to program in external incentives for acting in healthy ways. Hold off on seeing that blockbuster movie, buying that new song for your iPod or having that fancy dinner out: You can use those favorite items and activities as incentives for working on your wellness throughout the week. That is why reward systems work so well when creating health, fitness or weight-loss goals.

emoticon Beans, peas, lentils and oats are good sources of which kind of fiber?

-Soluble fiber; or
-Insoluble fiber

Explanation: Soluble fiber is found in beans, peas, lentils, oats, and barley. Some fruits and vegetables also have soluble fiber, such as apples, carrots, plums and squash. Eating foods with soluble fiber may help to lower blood cholesterol and decrease your risk of heart disease. These foods may also help lower blood sugar levels, which is important if you have diabetes.

emoticon Which of the following statements about ALA (Alpha-linolenic acid) is FALSE?

-It's a type of Omega-3 fatty acid
-It's found in flaxseed
-It's found primarily in plant foods; or
-Your body converts it to DHA very efficiently

emoticon Explanation: YOUR BODY CONVERTS IT TO DHA VERY EFFICIENTLY is FALSE! 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.

emoticon True or False: You will absorb more nutrients from your veggies by eating them with a fat (such as a vinaigrette dressing).

emoticon Explanation: TRUE! Your body can't make use of certain vitamins and antioxidants found in vegetables(beta-carotene, vitamin D, and vitamin E in particular) without a bit of fat to help process them. Ditch the fat-free salad dressing and dip your fork into a dressing made with olive oil for heightened meal satisfaction and nutrient absorption!

emoticon 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.

Explanation: emoticon Yes! Forget the "all or nothing" mentality when it comes to exercise. Fitness does not live or die by 60-minute workouts; there is middle ground. Short spurts of exercise, when they accumulate, have been shown to share similar benefits of longer workouts.

emoticon True or False: Exercising regularly can increase the size of the hippocampus region of the brain.

emoticon Answer/Explanation: True! A study published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found that regular sweat sessions can increase the size of a region of the brain called the hippocampus--a part of the brain that begins to decline around age 30 in most adults. The hippocampus is tucked deep in the brain and plays an important role in learning and memory. According to researchers, a larger hippocampus is associated with better performance on spatial reasoning and other cognitive tasks.

emoticon True or False: Caffeine has been found to aid significantly in weight loss.

emoticon emoticon Explanation: FALSE! Because caffeine is a stimulant, it does speed up metabolism, but the effect is only minimal and very short term. Clinical research does not show a significant weight loss with the use of caffeine-containing supplements. Therefore, save your money and leave those supplements (which can contain up to 300 mg of caffeine per dose) on the store shelf.

True or False: Strength training elevates your metabolism immediately following a workout.

Explanation: True! Johns Hopkins researchers found that while aerobic exercise burns more calories at the time you are exercising, your metabolism returns to normal about 30 minutes after you finish your workout. Individuals who perform strength training, however, elevate their metabolisms (burn more calories) for two hours after their workouts end.

emoticon To build greater muscle strength, you should do ___ repetitions of each exercise.

A - 8-10
B - 12-15
C - 18-20
D - fewer
E - more
All of the above
Both A and D; or
Both C and E

Explanation: A & D! If your goal is to build strength and muscle size, then aim for fewer reps (such as 8-10). Because you are doing fewer reps, you will need a heavier weight to reach muscle exhaustion in each set, so that's where the phrase "heavy weight, low reps" come from.

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.

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.

emoticon True or False: The only way your body can store energy from food is in the form of body fat.

Answer/Explanation: False! Your body can store energy from food for future use in two ways: 1) as fat and 2) as muscle fuel (called glycogen). Its first priority is to fill its glycogen tanks, because glycogen is the body's primary source of energy for physical activity. Once your glycogen stores are filled and the rest of the body's energy needs are covered, all the extra energy from your food will be stored as body fat.

Answer/Explanation: FALSE! Vitamins actually function primarily as catalysts, regulating chemical reactions within the body. They are also essential for the release of energy from food. But they do not provide calories or energy themselves.

emoticon True or False: Besides foods fortified with calcium, you can only get calcium from dairy foods like milk and yogurt.

emoticon Answer/Explanation: FALSE! You can find calcium in many dairy-free foods, from almonds to tofu. Collard greens, black-eyed peas, blackstrap molasses, kale and oranges are a few more plant-based sources of calcium.

emoticon After an intense workout, what nutrient does your body need most?

-Carbohydrates
-Protein
-Fat
-Vitamins; or
-Antioxidants

emoticon Answer/Explanation: Carbohydrates. Roughly 60% of the calories you eat at this time should come from carbohydrates. Contrary to popular belief, your body needs more carbohydrates than protein after a workout, to replace the muscle fuel (glycogen) you used up and to prepare for your next exercise session. Moderate exercisers need about 30-40 grams of carbohydrates after an hour of exercise, but high-intensity exercisers need more—around 50-60 grams for each hour they exercised.

emoticon True or False: If you don't have allergies by the time you're 30, you won't develop them later in life.

emoticon True or False: If you're not active or exercising after eating a meal or snack, the food you eat will turn into body fat.

emoticon Answer/Explanation: FALSE! Your body is constantly burning calories to perform physiological functions that keep your body alive and healthy (digestion, respiration, brain activity, etc.), so your body needs fuel from food and uses it all day long, even if you're not physically active. This is called your Resting Metabolic Rate, and it "runs" even when you're asleep.

emoticon True or False - Caffeine is found in certain headache medications.

emoticon Answer/Explanation: TRUE! The blood vessels in the brain dilate (enlarge) during a headache. Caffeine constricts the blood vessels, which lessens the pain. It is also a mild pain reliever. This is why caffeine is found in headache medications like Excedrin Migraine (130 mg per 2 tablets), Midol Complete (120 mg per 2 tablets) and Anacin (64 mg per 2 tablets).

emoticon True or False: For a muscle to get stronger, it has to get bigger.

emoticon Answer/Explanation: FALSE! The amount of force a muscle can generate depends not just on the size of the muscle fibers but also on the number of fibers that can be activated and used. Each time you challenge your muscles to do more than they usually do, they learn to use more of your existing muscle fibers. Muscle fibers won't start getting bigger until after you reach the point where you're activating most of them--and you can gain a lot of strength before you get to that point.

emoticon How many calories are equal to one pound of body fat?

emoticon Answer/Explanation: 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.

emoticon True or False: It's important to maintain a regular sleep and wake schedule each day, including weekends.

Answer/Explanation: emoticon TRUE! Your sleep-wake cycle is regulated by a "circadian clock" in your brain and the body's need to balance both sleep time and wake time. A regular waking time in the morning strengthens the circadian function and can help with sleep onset at night. That is also why it is important to keep a regular bedtime and wake time, even on the weekends when there is the temptation to sleep in.

emoticon Which of the following dietary habits does NOT contribute to high blood pressure?

-A high intake of sodium
-A low intake of fiber
-A low intake of potassium
-A high intake of calcium; or
-A high intake of alcohol?

emoticon Answer/Explanation: A HIGH INTAKE OF CALCIUM! A diet high in sodium, saturated fat, and cholesterol, and low in fiber, whole foods, and minerals (potassium, magnesium, calcium) can increase blood pressure. Eating a low-sodium, low-fat diet that is rich in whole foods, fiber and minerals like calcium can help. This eating plan, known as the DASH Diet, has been proven to lower blood pressure. Moderate to heavy drinking (more than 1-2 drinks daily) can dramatically increase blood pressure and other health risks. Health experts recommend no more than one drink a day for women, and no more than two drinks per day for men.

emoticon True or False: Brown eggs and white eggs have the same nutritional value.

Answer/Explanation: TRUE! The breed of chicken determines the color of the eggshell but not the nutrients. Brown eggs tend to cost more because it takes more feed for the chickens to produce the slightly larger eggs.

emoticon How many servings of ice cream are in a single pint?

emoticon Answer/Explanation: Four! A pint of ice cream is not a single serving; it's FOUR servings. If you eat an entire pint, you have to multiply the number of calories, fat grams, etc. listed on the label by four. Stick to portions the size of half a tennis ball, and always scoop your ice cream into a small bowl instead of eating it directly from the container to prevent overeating.

emoticon Where does most of the fuel you burn during exercise come from?

-Your most recent meal or snack; or
-Stored carbohydrates and fat

Answer/Explanation:
Most of the fuel you use during exercise doesn’t come from the food you've recently eaten! It actually comes from the carbohydrates (called "glycogen") and fat that's stored in your muscles, liver, and fat cells. That’s enough to fuel 1-2 hours of very intense exercise or 3-4 hours of moderate intensity exercise.

emoticon True or False: The best way to get more flax into your diet is to cook your food in flaxseed oil.

emoticon Answer/Explanation: FALSE! Flaxseed oil is even more perishable than ground flaxseed and goes bad quickly when exposed to air, light and heat. You can add flaxseed oil to many foods, but do NOT heat it or cook with it. Heat will cause flaxseed oil to go rancid and destroy its healthy properties. Only add flaxseed oil to chilled foods (like smoothies, salad dressings, yogurt, etc.) or to foods after cooking.

emoticon For optimum health, you want your HDL cholesterol to be...

-High (greater than 60 mg/dL)
-Low (less than 40 mg/dL); or
-Somewhere in between

Answer/Explanation: HIGH (greater than 60 mg/DL! 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.
