Week 3 Answers

What are keys to staying on track with healthy eating?

  1. Preparation and planning
  2. Running and weight lifting
  3. Eating protein and high fat foods only

 Answer: A.  Plan your meals – This will not only help you stay on track, but it will help you stay on budget as well. Plan all meals before you go to the store you only get items you need. It is also important to never shop on an empty stomach. You will be more likely to impulse buy that way.

Not getting enough sleep can affect your weight? 

  1. True
  2. False

 Answer: A. Too little sleep triggers a cortisol spike. This stress hormone signals your body to conserve energy to fuel your waking hours.  A University of Illinois study found that when dieters cut back on sleep over a 14-day period, the amount of weight they lost from fat dropped by 55%, even though their calories stayed equal. They felt hungrier and less satisfied after meals, and their energy was zapped.



Chronic stress can cause weight gain?

  1. True
  2. False

Answer: A. Too little sleep increases cortisol blood glucose levels, which in turn increases blood insulin levels. Chronic stress may cause persistently high insulin levels. This can lead to insulin resistance, in which the body’s cells no longer respond correctly to insulin. One effect of this is increased abdominal fat and overall weight gain.



What is the best way to burn calories fast?

  1. Walking
  2. Running
  3. Biking

 Answer B.  Running is the winner for most calories burned per hour. Stationary bicycling, jogging, and swimming are excellent options as well.


A 150-pound person running at a 10-minute pace for 60 minutes will burn 700 calories, while a 200-pound person running at the same time and pace will burn 933 calories. The average person will burn between 80 and 140 calories per mile.
