emoticon True or False: If people only ate healthful foods like fruits and vegetables they would never gain weight.

Answer: False

Explanation:
emoticon Even healthful foods can result in weight gain. Although better for you than processed foods in numerous ways, too much of anything--even fruits and vegetables--can result in weight gain. It's all about calories in vs. calories out. That said, the calories you eat should come from the healthiest, most nutritious sources possible.

Regular strength training increases the size and strength of the muscle fibers. It also strengthens the tendons, ligaments, and bones. All of these changes have a positive impact on your physical fitness, appearance, and metabolism, while reducing the risk of injury and decreasing joint and muscle pain.

emoticon Your resting heart rate (RHR) is a good indicator of your state of fitness. Fit people tend to have lower resting heart rates than unfit people because their hearts are stronger and more efficient, which means they can beat more slowly when at rest.

emoticon Wheat (all types, including durum, einkorn, faro, kamut, semolina and spelt), barley, rye and certain processed oats all contain a protein called gluten, and all foods made from these grains (most flours, cereals, breads, pastas, crackers and cookies) contain gluten, too. Not all grains contain gluten, however. Amaranth, arrowroot, buckwheat, cassava (manioc), corn, flax, indian rice grass (montina), Job's tears, millet, finger millet (ragi), potatoes, quinoa, rice, sago, sorghum, soy, tapioca, tef (teff), wild rice and yucca are naturally gluten-free.

Research shows that you should do cardio first. Published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research, one study examined how many calories exercisers burned doing one of four workout combinations: running only, strength training only, running followed by strength training, and strength training followed by running. The run-strength training group came out on top with the highest exercise after burn of all.

emoticon While lower in calories and fat than ice cream, not all frozen yogurt is made with live and active cultures the way that standard yogurt is. To make sure that a frozen yogurt contains "yogurt" and a significant amount of live and active cultures, look for the National Yogurt Association (NYA) Live & Active Cultures seal. Without that seal, frozen yogurt does not contain any probiotics.

emoticon Progressively overloading your muscles is the key to effective strength training. But increasing the weight you use too rapidly can lead to burnout, chronic soreness, and overuse injuries. A better approach for most people is to increase the weight (by about 10%) when you can reliably do the higher number of reps each time in good form.

emoticon Most moderate exercisers will lose about one quart (4 cups) of fluid per hour of exercise, so try to drink about 16-20 ounces of water shortly after your workout to aid the recovery process.

emoticon Iron can build up to dangerously high levels in the body, especially in people with the genetic problem called hemochromatosis. Over supplementation of iron can also occur. This is especially dangerous in children who may take adult vitamin/mineral supplements. Immediate medical attention should be obtained. The Tolerable Upper Intake Level is 45 milligrams daily for both adult males and females.

emoticon Wendy's Jr. Hamburger makes a smart choice. Enjoy this burger for 280 calories and 9 grams of fat (3.5 grams saturated fat) and both your taste buds and your waistline will be happy. Hardee's Slammer is a bit lower in calories (240), but higher in fat (12 grams) and saturated fat (5 grams), which you should try to avoid if you're watching your cholesterol levels. Both of these are the lowest-cal burger options at their respective locations. If you want cheese, factor in about 40 more calories, and always say no to the high-fat special sauces and mayo.
