Which of the following vitamins is water-soluble?
Vitamin B-12 emoticon
Water-soluble vitamins dissolve in water. They include the B-complex vitamins and vitamin C. They are carried in your bloodstream and are not stored in the body in significant amounts. Your body uses the amount that is needed, and then the extra is excreted in the urine. Since your body does not store water-soluble vitamins, regular intake is necessary. Water-soluble vitamins are also destroyed more easily during food storage, processing and preparation.

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

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

In the U.S., how far does the average food item travel before it reaches your table?
Over 1,000 miles emoticon
Our existing system of food transportation and distribution requires enormous amounts of energy and resources. Before reaching your table, the average food item in the United States will travel 1,300 miles! This is one of many reasons that environmentalists and nutritionists alike recommend eating locally grown food as much as possible.

When participating in regular exercise, you should always take 1-2 rest days per week to repair your muscles.
True emoticon
Recovery is the time your body uses to adapt to the stresses you've put on it, as well as repair tissues that were damaged during your workouts. If you avoid rest days and don't give your muscles and joints a chance to recover, you'll continue to break the body down instead of making it stronger. A good rule of thumb is to allow for 1-2 rest days per week. This doesn't mean you have to sit on the couch all day and do nothing. It's OK to do some light activity, like go for a walk or do an easy yoga session. But your activity shouldn't be intense or challenging. Your body needs the time to rest and repair.

___ is the painful sensation or state of weakness caused by the need of food.
Hunger emoticon
By definition, hunger is "the painful sensation or state of weakness caused by the need of food." Simply put, hunger is a signal from your body that it needs food for energy. When you're truly hungry, your stomach, brain, or both will give you cues to tell you to eat. Signals from your stomach may be growling, an empty, hollow feeling, or hunger pangs. Your brain may send signals such as a headache, trouble concentrating, irritability or fogginess. Some people even experience physical fatigue when they are hungry. Hunger does not go away over time--it only gets worse. And any food will satisfy your hunger and take the hunger signals away.

B and D only emoticon
Hot flashes are common in most women during perimenopause, menopause, and even the post-menopausal years. More than three cups of coffee or caffeinated beverages per day, or less if you are particularly sensitive, can aggravate hot flashes. Wearing layers of clothing is recommended to help you cool off quickly during a hot flash and warm up if you get chilled after one. Layering blankets on your bed may help if you are experiencing hot flashes at night. Hormone replacement therapy isn't routinely recommended for menopause symptoms these days because it carries other risks, so talk to your doctor about its pros and cons. To learn more about the management and treatment of hot flashes click here.

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.

While Pilates does build core strength, Mr. Pilates always emphasized that his exercises were for the whole body. He believed the more muscles you use to perform a movement, the more efficient the movement would be. This creates a system of functional strength that applies to all movements. The Pilates system teaches a balance of strength and flexibility, or, "the uniform development of our bodies as a whole," Pilates often said.

Frozen vegetables have fewer nutrients than fresh vegetables
False emoticon
Frozen veggies sometimes have a bad reputation, but they actually have just as many nutrients as the fresh stuff. In fact, frozen vegetables hold onto nutrients longer than fresh produce since freezing can lock in nutrients more efficiently than canning or refrigeration methods.

Electronic bathroom scales that measure body fat are 100% accurate.
False emoticon
Special scales that use bioelectrical impedance (weak electrical signals) can estimate your body fat percentage. These scales can have a large margin of error (around 10% or more according to some studies). Plus, digital scales only measure fat levels in the lower body (the signal travels up one leg and down the other), so they don't provide a full picture of the fat level of your entire body.

It's best to start your strength-training workouts with exercises for larger muscles and then work on your smaller muscles.
True emoticon
If you work out the smaller muscles first, they'll be too tired to help out when you're lifting heavier weights to train your larger muscles. So do the "heavy lifting" first, and finish off with the smaller muscles.

In order to lower your triglyceride numbers, you need to lose:
7-10% of your body weight emoticon
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!

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.

Which of the following statements about HDL is FALSE?
It's the unhealthy cholesterol emoticon
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. Click here to learn about other important cholesterol numbers, like LDL and triglycerides.

What blood pressure reading is considered optimal?
120 / 80 emoticon
Blood pressure, the force of blood against artery walls, is measured in millimeters of mercury (mm HG) and recorded as two numbers: systolic (pressure on the arterial walls as the heart contracts) over diastolic (pressure on the arterial walls as the heart relaxes between beats). Both numbers are important. Click here to see a chart that will help you recognize the differences between optimal and high (hypertensive) blood pressure for adults (measured in mm Hg).

Caffeine is found in certain headache medications
True emoticon
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).

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

20%
40% correct answer
60%
80%


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.

Faith is our power to know there can be no true unhappiness or disappointment when the Divine is at work.

The only symptom of insomnia is difficulty falling asleep.
False emoticon
Difficulty falling asleep is just one of four symptoms generally associated with insomnia. The others include: waking up too early and not being able to fall back asleep, frequent awakenings, and waking up feeling tired. Insomnia can be a symptom of a sleep disorder or other medical problem, and can often be treated. If insomnia symptoms occur more than a few times a week and also impact your daytime functions, discuss these symptoms with your health care provider.
