emoticon After age 60, people who don't strength train lose how many pounds of muscle per year (on average)?

-1 pound
-2 pounds
-3 pounds

emoticon Answer/Explanation: 1 Pound! Starting in their twenties, most people (especially women) lose half a pound of muscle every year if they aren't strength training to preserve it. After age 60, this rate of loss doubles. But regular strength training can preserve muscle throughout the lifespan, and rebuild the muscle lost.

emoticon True or False: For best results, you should increase the amount of weight you lift every time you workout.

Answer/Explanation: FALSE! 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 True or False: Simply walking for 15 minutes per day (without changing your diet) can prevent weight gain.

Explanation: FALSE! emoticon Walking alone might not be enough to prevent weight gain. Researchers from the Center for Human Nutrition at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center say that simply walking for 15 minutes (or about 2,000 steps) and eating a couple fewer bites of food can help you prevent future weight gain.

emoticon True or False: Taking allergy medications regularly will cure allergies.

Explanation: False! emoticon Medications like antihistamines only relieve allergy symptoms, not cure them. The only known treatment that can cure allergies is immunotherapy (allergy shots). Nearly 80 percent of people who use these treatments correctly for one to three years will successfully cure their allergies. Talk to your doctor to find out if immunotherapy treatment is right for you.

emoticon True or False: As long as you're working hard, you don't need to change your workout routine.

Explanation: False! emoticon Incorporate variation into each workout. Variety is critical because your muscles become very efficient at the exercises they are accustomed to doing. Switching things up or doing something radically different during each workout session is more challenging to your muscles. This concept should be applied to both aerobic exercise and strength training.

emoticon True or False: "Natural" is synonymous with "organic" when it comes to food.

emoticon Explanation: FALSE! The word "natural" is not regulated by the FDA and therefore is very misleading. Sure "natural" brings to mind thoughts of fresh, minimally processed and healthy food, but it means nothing about a food's nutritional content, ingredients, processing, safety, or health effects. Organic, on the other hand, is a regulated term referring to the way a food was grown or raised--without synthetic fertilizers, hormones or antibiotics, for example.

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: 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 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.

True or False: Vitamins contain calories.

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 - 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 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 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 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 doesnít 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. Thatís 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.

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

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).

emoticon True or False: Women should lift light weights for more repetitions to avoid bulking up.

emoticon Answer/Explanation: FALSE! While on a weight lifting program, the right hormones (testosterone) are necessary in order to bulk up. Womenís testosterone levels are much lower than menís, 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.

emoticon What are the 4 fat-soluble vitamins?

emoticon Answer/Explanation: 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.

emoticon For best results, how long should you hold a stretch?

emoticon Answer/Explanation: 15-30 Seconds. Ideally, most experts recommend that people stretch for 10-15 minutes per day. Hold each stretch for 15-30 seconds, repeating one or two more times, depending on how you feel.

emoticon Can food labels that list "0" trans fats actual contain some trans fats?

Answer/Explanation: Any food that lists "hydrogenated oil" on the ingredients list does contain trans fats, even if the label says zero. A labeling loophole allows any food that contains fewer than 0.5 grams of trans fat per serving to list "0" grams of trans fat on the label, so always check the ingredients list!

emoticon Vitamin D and calcium work hand in hand to fight the osteoporosis often associated with aging. How much vitamin D do most adults need each day?

25-50 IU
100-200 IU
400-800 IU; or
As much as possible

emoticon Answer/Explanation: Just a few minutes of sunlight a day can provide your body with ample amounts of vitamin D, but many of us spend most of our time indoors, especially during the winter months. A daily supplement providing 400-800 IU (international unites) of vitamin D can help to ensure youíre meeting your bodyís needs.

emoticon True or False: Fat-free foods are always the healthiest choice.

emoticon Answer/Explanation: FALSE! When you remove the fat from foods that naturally contain them, you have to replace the fat with some other ingredients (often sugar or salt). Instead of choosing the fat-free version of your favorite cheese, which will lack the satisfyingly rich mouth feel of the original, choose the reduced-fat version. It will retain some of that richness with less fat and fewer calories.

emoticon True or False: Eggs are a lower-quality protein than poultry, beef, fish, and beans.

emoticon Answer/Explanation: FALSE! Eggs are exceptionally high-quality protein. In fact, the only source of protein higher in quality than eggs is a motherís breast milk. Amino acids are the building blocks for proteins in our body, and eggs contain all nine of the essential amino acidsóthe ones our bodies cannot produce.

emoticon True or False: A vitamin E deficiency is common in the U.S.

emoticon Answer/Explanation: Because it is abundant in many foods, a deficiency of vitamin E is rare. Vitamin E is found in a variety of foods. The best sources include wheat germ and wheat germ oil, soybean, corn, safflower and cottonseed oil. Good sources include margarine, mayonnaise, salad dressings, nuts, seeds, peanuts, and peanut butter. Fair sources include whole grains, corn, beef liver, leafy-green vegetables, fish and eggs.

-Strength training before running; OR
-Running before strength training

emoticon Answer/Explanation: 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 True or False: Simply walking for 15 minutes per day (without changing your diet) can prevent weight gain.

Answer/Explanation: False! Walking alone might not be enough to prevent weight gain. Researchers from the Center for Human Nutrition at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center say that simply walking for 15 minutes (or about 2,000 steps) and eating a couple fewer bites of food can help you prevent future weight gain.

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

emoticon 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.

emoticon Inactive adults who don't strength train regularly can lose how many pounds of muscle mass per year?

emoticon Explanation: 1/2 Pound. Without consistent strength training, muscle size and strength decline with age. An inactive person loses 1/2 pound of muscle per year after age 20. After age 60, this rate of loss doubles. But, muscle loss is not inevitable. With regular strength training, muscle mass can be preserved throughout the lifespan, and the muscle lost can be rebuilt.

There are 5 components of fitness. Which of the following isn't one of them?

Answer/Explanation: Warm Ups. These five components of fitness should be included in your own fitness program. To be considered fit, you need to meet certain standards in each of these five areas, which include 1- body composition (your weight, fat mass, lean muscle mass, and fat distribution), 2- aerobic fitness (ability to sustain moderate-intensity activity for extended periods of time), 3- flexibility (the range of motion of several joints), 4- muscular strength (maximum amount of force you can perform with a single contraction), and 5- muscular endurance (ability to repeat high-intensity muscle contractions). While warm-ups aren't part of the 5 components of fitness, they should be part of your workouts. You should warm-up before aerobic, strength, and flexibility exercises.

emoticon Strength training builds stronger muscles, but what else does it help strengthen?
A - Tendons
B - Ligaments
C - Bones
D - Joints
All of the above
C and D only

emoticon Answer/Explanation: ALL THE ABOVE! 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 How soon after working out should you eat?

emoticon Answer/Explanation
The ideal time to eat after a workout is within 30 minutes to two hours, when your body is ready and waiting to top off its fuel tanks to prepare for your next workout. But if your appetite or schedule doesnít allow you to eat a meal right after your exercise session, don't panic. Your body can still replace your muscle fuel over the next 24 hours, as long as you're eating enough food to support your activity level.

emoticon True or False: Sensitivities to specific allergens (such as pollen) are inherited.

emoticon Answer/Explanation: FALSE! Sensitivities to specific allergens are not inherited, but the tendency to develop allergies can be traced back to your parents. If your mother was allergic to dust mites for example, you might also develop allergies--but not necessarily to the same substance. If one of your parents had allergies, you have a one in three chance of also developing an allergy. This risk jumps as high as 75% if both of your parents had allergies.

emoticon True or False: Sunscreen blocks your body's ability to make vitamin D when exposed to sunlight.

Answer/Explanation: TRUE! Vitamin D is known as the "sunshine vitamin" because it is made in your skin when the ultraviolet light hits your skin. However, sunscreen can inhibit the body's ability to make vitamin D. If you eat a balanced diet and get outside in the sunshine at least 1.5 to 2 hours a week, you should be getting all the vitamin D you need.

emoticon True or False: It's better to squeeze out one more repetition, even with bad form, to really fatigue your muscles.

Answer/Explanation: FALSE! Bad form is never a good idea. The only thing this will accomplish is increasing your risk of injury. Your goal should be to stop after the last repetition you can do in good form--that means without using momentum or body contortions to move the weight. A little muscle trembling or shakiness is OK, but don't go beyond that.

emoticon According to the glycemic index, people should eat more foods that have...

Answer/Explanation: LOW GLYCEMIC INDEX! One system for classifying carbohydrates is the glycemic index. The glycemic index ranks foods on how they affect blood sugar level by measuring how much the blood sugar increases after one eats. For example, white bread is digested quickly into glucose, causing blood sugar to spike quickly. Therefore white bread has a high glycemic index number. In contrast, brown rice is digested more slowly, causing a lower, more gentle change in blood sugar. It therefore has a lower glycemic index number.

emoticon How much water should you drink during a workout?

emoticon Answer/Explanation: 8 ounces every 15-20 minutes!
During one hour of vigorous exercise, the average person loses one quart (32 ounces) of water through sweat! However, drinking water before and after exercise is just as important.

emoticon Vitamin D and calcium work hand in hand to fight the osteoporosis often associated with aging. How much vitamin D do most adults need each day?

emoticon Answer/Explanation: 400-800 IU! Just a few minutes of sunlight a day can provide your body with ample amounts of vitamin D, but many of us spend most of our time indoors, especially during the winter months. A daily supplement providing 400-800 IU (international unites) of vitamin D can help to ensure youíre meeting your bodyís needs.

emoticon Answer/Explanation: STORED CARBOHYDRATES & FAT! Most of the fuel you use during exercise doesnít 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. Thatís enough to fuel 1-2 hours of very intense exercise or 3-4 hours of moderate intensity exercise. you use during exercise doesnít come from the food you've recently eaten!

emoticon True or False: The friendly bacteria in your digestive tract make vitamins that your body uses.

emoticon Explanation: TRUE! Vitamin K can be made in your digestive tract by the billions of bacteria that are in your intestines. Some of these bacteria synthesize vitamin K that your body can then absorb. You can also obtain vitamin K from food sources such as green-leafy vegetables such as spinach and broccoli, pork, liver, whole wheat, oats, and bran. Fair sources include fruits, vegetables, seeds, tubers, milk, and eggs.
