You should exercise in the 'fat burning zone' (low intensity, long duration) to lose the most weight. emoticon
The "fat burning zone" business is very misleading. Itís true that low intensity exercise uses more fat as fuel and that moderate intensity exercise (that you can maintain for 20 minutes or more) burns both fat and glucose. But, you're better off exercising in the aerobic zone as much as you can, because exercising at this higher intensity burns more total calories. You will burn a larger percentage of fat in relation to glucose when you are working at a lower intensity, but you will also burn fewer total calories and less total fat. The relative percentage of fat burned has nothing to do with weight lossóit's the total amount calories burned that counts.

Eggs can absorb flavors and smells from your fridge.
True emoticon
Eggshells have more than 17,000 pores. Keeping them in open air in the fridge next to last nightís salmon may yield a fishy-tasting omelet the next morning. Storing your eggs in the carton can help keep them fresh and tasty. Itís safest to keep eggs on the middle or bottom shelf of the fridge, not in the door, where temperatures often rise above the recommended 37 degrees Fahrenheit.

One 5-Hour Energy drink contains 157 milligrams of caffeine. What is the recommended daily limit for adult caffeine intake?
No more than 400 milligrams per day emoticon
For a healthy adult, one 5-Hour Energy Drink per day doesnít present any major potential health risk. The drink provides about 157 milligrams of caffeine, based on a Forbes-commissioned lab test. Remember that the recommendation for caffeine intake for the healthy adult is no more than 400 milligrams daily. Now, if you are downing several 5-Hour Energy Drinks, along with cups of coffee and cans of soda, you could be easily exceeding the recommendation, which may result in an overstimulated heart and body.

HDL cholesterol is the healthy kind.
True 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.

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.

By dieting alone (not exercising), how much of your weight loss could be muscle and lean tissue?

According to a University of Michigan research study, at least 25% to 30% of weight lost by dieting alone is not fat at all, but lean tissue, muscle, bone and water. However, strength training helps dieters preserve muscle mass while still losing weight.

It's normal for people to become depressed as they get older.
False emoticon
Depression is not a natural part of aging. While you may think that the risk of developing depression increases with age, that's not always the case. In fact, studies show that the elderly are more likely to be happy and content with their lives than their younger counterparts. Depression can occur at any age (even in children), but it is most common in people between the ages of 24 and 44.

You can develop osteoarthritis by being physically inactive or physically overactive.
True emoticon
You are more likely to develop osteoarthritis if you are physically inactive or physically overactive. A lack of exercise weakens muscles and bones, decreasing flexibility and support at the joints, which eventually leads to pain and stiffness. At the same time, over-exercising can also be harmful to the joints. Stick with moderate exercise to strengthen the joints, decrease pain and improve range of motion. Read Managing Arthritis with Exercise to get started.

Exercising regularly can increase the size of the hippocampus region of the brain.

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.

Vegans, also known as strict vegetarians, omit all meat and animal products (eggs, dairy, etc.) from their diets. Because vitamin B-12 only occurs naturally in animal foods like meat, dairy and eggs, vegans must supplement their B-12 intake with pill supplements or foods that have been fortified with vitamin B-12.

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

The majority of runners strike the ground with
Their heels emoticon
A 2010 study in the journal Nature found that the majority of runners wearing shoes strike their heels, which causes a large and sudden collision force that happens (on average) 960 times for every mile ran. The authors concluded that this makes runners prone to repetitive stress injuries. People who run barefoot tend to land with a step toward the middle or front of the foot, causing less impact force to the foot.

Which has fewer calories--the burger or burrito?
McDonald's Quarter Pounder with Cheese emoticon
Surprised? While the Quarter Pounder isn't exactly a diet food, with 520 calories and 26 grams of fat, it is much lower in calories AND fat than a Chipotle burrito. The burrito described above commands a whopping 775 calories and 28 grams of fat! Add sour cream (110 calories), beans (130 calories), and guacamole (170) calories, and you've eaten more calories (1,185) than a lot of people eat in an entire day. Next time, make your burrito healthier by swapping the meat for beans, putting it in a bowl (instead of a tortilla), and loading up on flavorful salsa instead of cheese, sour cream, and guacamole. You'll save about 500 calories.

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

-0 pounds
-1/4 pound
-1 pound
-2 pounds
-1/2 Pound

emoticon 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.

Which of the following best describes calisthenics?
Body weight exercises emoticon
Calisthenics are exercises that use your own body weight in lieu of outside or added resistance. You can use the weight of your own body to develop muscle, but using body weight alone is less effective for developing larger muscles and greater strength. However, calisthenics adequately improve general muscular fitness and are sufficient to improve muscle tone and maintain oneís current level of muscular strength. Examples include: pushups, crunches, dips, pull ups, lunges, and squats, just to name a few.
