emoticon When is the best time to stretch?
A-Before you workout
B-After you workout
C-Any time of day

Answer & Explanation: B. Always warm up before doing any stretching exercises. Stretching a cold muscle increases the risk of pulls or tears. Think of your muscles like you would a rubber band. It's easy to stretch a warm rubber band, but if you try to stretch a cold one, you risk cracking or breaking it. Don’t treat your muscles like a cold rubber band!

emoticon On average, potassium intake among American adults is...
-Lower than recommendations
-Higher than recommendations
-Just right

Answer & Explanation: LOWER! The recommended intake of potassium for adult males and females is 4.7 grams each day. Most adults receive only 2.1 to 3.2 grams daily. On average, the potassium intake in the United States is well below the recommended intake level. This may be a contributing factor in high blood pressure.

emoticon True or False: Stretching can cause injury.

Answer & Explanation: TRUE! Flexibility training is broadly accepted as a way to increase joint mobility. The goal of stretching is to optimize joint mobility while maintaining joint stability. Although research has shown that different stretching methods will improve joint flexibility, it should be noted that inappropriate stretching can cause injury.

emoticon True or False: Potatoes, sweet potatoes and yams all come from the same plant family.

Answer & Explanation: False! Let's clear up the confusion about potatoes, sweet potatoes and yams: They're all members of distinct plant families, unrelated to one another. The only thing these three have in common is their growing habit: All are edible tuberous roots supported by above-ground flowering plants.

emoticon Which of the following relaxation techniques will NOT help you get a better night's sleep?
-Journaling
-Reading a book
-Watching TV
-Taking a bath
-Listening to relaxing music

Answer & Explanation: WATCHING TV! Reading a book, listening to some soft music, journaling, or writing a letter are all great ways to shut down your mind at night. Don't watch television or use the computer, as the bright screens will actually stimulate your brain more, causing you to stay alert.

emoticon After an intense workout, what nutrient does your body need most?
-Carbohydrates
-Protein
-Fat
-Vitamins
-Antioxidants

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 In order to lower your triglyceride numbers, you need to lose:
-5% of your body weight
-7-10% of your body weight
-20% of your body weight
-Weight loss does not affect your triglyceride numbers

Answer & Explanation: Since your body releases triglycerides into the bloodstream from your stored fat, the less fat you have available, the lower your triglycerides will be. You don't have to lose a lot of weight to see a benefit either. Losing just 7-10% of your body weight (just 14-20 pounds for a 200-pound person) can make a difference in your triglycerides—and for your heart!

emoticon How much water should you drink during a workout?
-Drink when you feel thirsty
-It depends on how much you sweat
-8 ounces every 15-20 minutes
-16 ounces every 15-20 minutes

Answer & Explanation! 8 ounches 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 True or False: Cooking veggies in water can decrease the amount of nutrients in them.

Answer & Explanation: Most veggies retain their shape and texture even after cooking. But overcooking them (or cooking them the wrong way) can sap their nutrients. Heating veggies until mushy--especially in water--is more than unpalatable; it's a surefire way to decrease the nutrients available in the vegetables. Cook your veggies lightly and quickly to help retain water-soluble nutrients like vitamin C and many B vitamins.

emoticon True or False: Minerals cannot be destroyed by light, water, or heat.

Answer & Explanation: True! Minerals are very stable. They cannot be destroyed by light, water, heat or food handling processes. In fact, the little bit of ash that remains when a food is completely burned is its mineral content!

emoticon Americans get ___ of their daily calories from beverages.
-11%
-21%
-31%

Answer & Explanation: 21%! In the 1970s, Americans got 6-8% of their daily calories from drinks, but today, 21% of their daily calories from beverages. Not counting what’s in that glass, cup, can or mug may be a major cause of the alarming increase in obesity.

emoticon True or False: You should always avoid exercise when you have a cold.

Answer & Explanation: FALSE! If the cold is primarily in your head, it's okay to exercise, just at a lower intensity (provided you feel okay and have enough energy). Once you are feeling 100% again, then you can slowly increase your activity back to your pre-illness level. If your cold is below the neck (in your chest), try to refrain from activity until it clears up. The best thing you can do for your body when it's trying to fight a bug is to give it rest.

True or False: If you exercise regularly, it's possible to reduce your cholesterol even if you don't lose weight.

Answer & Explanation: True! Several studies show widespread improvements in cholesterol levels are related to the amount of activity and not the intensity of exercise. The more minutes you exercise per week, the more your cholesterol levels will improve, even if accompanied by a minimal weight change.

emoticon On average, potassium intake among American adults is...
-Lower than recommendations
-Higher than recommendations
-Just right

Answer & Explanation: LOWER! The recommended intake of potassium for adult males and females is 4.7 grams each day. Most adults receive only 2.1 to 3.2 grams daily. On average, the potassium intake in the United States is well below the recommended intake level. This may be a contributing factor in high blood pressure.

emoticon True or False: Even if you are at a healthy weight, your risk for developing hypertension is greater if you do not exercise regularly.

Answer & Explanation: TRUE! Sedentary individuals have a higher risk for hypertension than individuals who are active. Regular exercise can lower both systolic and diastolic blood pressure. However, if you are overweight, your risk of developing high blood pressure is two to six times higher.

emoticon How much dietary cholesterol should you consume from foods each day?
-25 milligrams
-10% of your calories
-Less than 300 milligrams
-Dietary cholesterol does not affect your body's cholesterol levels.

Answer & Explanation: LESS THAN 300 MILLIGRAMS! Dietary cholesterol is found only in foods of animal origin, such as meat, poultry, fish, eggs, and dairy products. It is not found in plant foods like grains, fruits and vegetables. Individuals should limit their intake of dietary cholesterol to less than 300 milligrams daily.

emoticon True or False: Eventually, depression will go away by itself.

Answer & Explanation: FALSE! For some people, depression might go away without intervention, but that's not the case for most people who suffer from depression. There is no way of knowing how long depression might last, and it can greatly increase your risk of other complications if left untreated. There are several types of treatment that can quickly and effectively decrease the severity of depression.

emoticon True or False: Hemp seeds contain healthy Omega-3 fatty acids.

Explanation: True! Hemp seeds are highly nutritious, containing essential fatty acids, amino acids, and minerals. About a third of the weight of the seed is made up of oil, and most of that oil is the healthy variety: ALA (alpha-linoleic acid, a type of Omega-3 fat) and linoleic acid. These essential fatty acids (EFA's for short) can benefit your health in many ways.

emoticon The morning after an intense workout, you start feeling quite sore. You notice that you feel this way up to 72 hours after your workout, but then you feel as good as new. Which type of muscle soreness are you experiencing?
-Long-Term Muscle Soreness
-Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness
-None of the Above

Answer & Explanation: Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness, called DOMS for short, is the soreness you're probably most familiar with. It's what you feel when you get out of bed the next morning after a tough workout. This type of muscle soreness begins 24 to 48 hours after your workout and actually indicates a natural adaptive process that the body uses after an intense exercise session. When you do a new or particularly challenging workout, your muscle fibers tear on a microscopic level. If you still feel pain well past the 72-hour mark you may be experiencing Long-Term Muscle Soreness. If the pain lingers for longer than 5 days, consult your doctor.

emoticon True or False: Your body needs both major minerals and trace minerals each day.

Answer & Explanation: TRUE! Minerals can be divided into two main categories, based on the amount that is needed by the body. Major minerals (or macrominerals) are present in relatively large amounts in the body and are required in fairly large amounts in the diet--more that 250 milligrams daily. Trace minerals (or trace elements) are needed in much smaller quantities--less than 20 milligrams daily.

Which of the following nutrients should you LIMIT if you want to improve your cholesterol levels?
A - Trans fats
B - Saturated fats
C - Cholesterol
D - Polyunsaturated fats
-All of the above
-A, B, and C only

Answer & Explanation: A, B and C! Trans fat is the unhealthiest fat you can eat! It increases your total cholesterol and your LDL (bad) cholesterol while lowering your HDL (good) cholesterol. Saturated fat is unhealthy because it increases both your total blood cholesterol and your LDL (bad) cholesterol as well. Cholesterol should be limited to less than 300 mg daily. Polyunsaturated fats are somewhat healthy since they decrease your LDL (bad) cholesterol, but also decrease your HDL (good) cholesterol.

emoticon True or False: Cholesterol doesn't play a significant role in your body; it's just bad for you.

Answer & Explanation: False! Cholesterol is a building block of body cells and hormones. It makes up 50 percent of your nervous system, and is necessary for metabolism. In moderate amounts, it is essential to good health. But the dangers of high cholesterol, including artery blockage and heart disease, are well-documented. Other studies suggest that very low cholesterol levels can also be harmful and dangerous. The key seems to be making sure your body has enough--but not too much.

emoticon You can "cheat" on the amount of sleep you get.

Answer & Explanation: False! Sleep experts say most adults need between seven and nine hours of sleep each night for optimum performance, health and safety. When we don’t get adequate sleep, we accumulate a sleep debt that can be difficult to "pay back" if it becomes too big. The resulting sleep deprivation has been linked to health problems such as obesity and high blood pressure, negative mood and behavior, decreased productivity, and safety issues in the home, on the job, and on the road.
