Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which of these is NOT a macronutrient?

    • A.

      A. Protein 

    • B.

      B. Fat

    • C.

      C. Carbohydrates

    • D.

      D. Vitamins 

    Correct Answer
    D. D. Vitamins 
    Explanation
    Vitamins are not considered macronutrients because they are required in much smaller quantities compared to macronutrients like proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. Macronutrients are nutrients that provide energy to the body and are needed in larger amounts. Vitamins, on the other hand, are essential organic compounds that the body needs in small amounts for various metabolic processes. They do not provide energy directly but play a crucial role in maintaining overall health and well-being.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Foods high in _______ slow down the release of glucose from food into the blood.

    • A.

      A. Fiber

    • B.

      B. Protein 

    • C.

      C. Calcium 

    • D.

      D. Fat

    Correct Answer
    A. A. Fiber
    Explanation
    Foods high in fiber slow down the release of glucose from food into the blood because fiber is a type of carbohydrate that cannot be broken down by the body. Instead, it passes through the digestive system largely intact. This slows down the digestion process and the absorption of glucose into the bloodstream, resulting in a more gradual and steady release of glucose.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Eating refined sugar is associated with the cardiovascular disease risk factors below EXCEPT

    • A.

      A. High triglycerides  

    • B.

      B. Low HDL 

    • C.

      C. High blood pressure

    • D.

      D. Decreased insulin sensitivity 

    Correct Answer
    C. C. High blood pressure
    Explanation
    Eating refined sugar is associated with high triglycerides, low HDL (good cholesterol), and decreased insulin sensitivity. However, there is no direct association between eating refined sugar and high blood pressure. While excessive sugar consumption may indirectly contribute to high blood pressure by causing weight gain and obesity, it is not a direct risk factor for hypertension.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Which type of fat has anti-inflammatory properties 

    • A.

      A. Omega-6 

    • B.

      B. Saturated fat

    • C.

      C. Trans fat

    • D.

      D. Omega-3

    Correct Answer
    D. D. Omega-3
    Explanation
    Omega-3 fats have anti-inflammatory properties. They are a type of polyunsaturated fat that has been shown to reduce inflammation in the body. Omega-3 fats are found in fatty fish, such as salmon and sardines, as well as in walnuts, flaxseeds, and chia seeds. They are beneficial for overall health and have been linked to a reduced risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, arthritis, and certain types of cancer.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    All foods have the same effect on blood sugar.

    • A.

      A. True

    • B.

      B. False

    Correct Answer
    B. B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is false because different foods have different effects on blood sugar levels. Foods that are high in carbohydrates, especially refined carbohydrates like white bread and sugary drinks, tend to cause a rapid increase in blood sugar levels. On the other hand, foods that are high in protein and healthy fats have a slower and more gradual impact on blood sugar. Therefore, it is important for individuals with conditions like diabetes to be mindful of their food choices and their effects on blood sugar.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    The average meal should provide approximately ________ hours of energy.

    • A.

      A. 2

    • B.

      B. 4

    • C.

      C. 6

    • D.

      D. 8

    Correct Answer
    B. B. 4
    Explanation
    The average meal should provide approximately 4 hours of energy. This is because the body typically takes around 4 hours to fully digest and absorb the nutrients from a meal. During this time, the body converts the carbohydrates, proteins, and fats into energy that can be used for various bodily functions. Therefore, a meal that provides 4 hours of energy is considered to be a balanced and sufficient source of nutrition.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    It is possible to eat more and weigh less.

    • A.

      A. True

    • B.

      B. False

    Correct Answer
    A. A. True
    Explanation
    It is possible to eat more and weigh less if the individual consumes a diet that is high in nutrient-dense foods and low in calorie-dense foods. Nutrient-dense foods provide essential nutrients while being low in calories, allowing a person to eat more volume of food without consuming excessive calories. Additionally, regular exercise and physical activity can help increase calorie expenditure, leading to weight loss despite eating more.

This combination ensures a variety of flavors and textures while also incorporating essential nutrients from different food groups.
