    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Build a healthy plate
    B. Cut back on foods high in solid fats, added sugars, and salt
    C. Eat the right amount of calories for you
    Explanation
    Achieving a balanced diet involves building a healthy plate, which means including a variety of nutrient-rich foods such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats. Cutting back on foods high in solid fats, added sugars, and salt is important to reduce the intake of unhealthy components. Additionally, eating the right amount of calories for one's individual needs is crucial to maintain a healthy weight and overall well-being. Rewarding oneself with treats every day may not contribute to a balanced diet as it can lead to excessive consumption of unhealthy foods.

    Cooking more often at home will help you stay in control of what's in your food.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Cooking more often at home allows individuals to have control over the ingredients and cooking methods used in their meals. By preparing meals at home, people can choose fresh and nutritious ingredients, control portion sizes, and avoid unhealthy additives or excessive amounts of salt, sugar, or fats often found in processed foods. This helps individuals make healthier choices and maintain a balanced diet, ultimately contributing to better overall health and well-being.

    • A.

    • B.

      Protein, fats, calcium

    • C.

      Vitamins, fiber, fats

    • D.

      Oils, sweets, sodium

    Correct Answer
    A. Fats, sugars, salt
    Explanation
    Regardless of your diet plans, it's always a good idea to limit or cut back on foods high in solid fats, added sugars, and salt. These three components, when consumed in excess, can contribute to various health issues such as obesity, heart disease, and high blood pressure. Solid fats, found in foods like butter and red meat, can raise cholesterol levels. Added sugars, commonly found in sugary drinks and processed snacks, can lead to weight gain and dental problems. Excessive salt intake, often found in processed and packaged foods, can increase the risk of high blood pressure. Therefore, it is important to limit the consumption of these three elements for overall health and well-being.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    You should stop eating when you feel satisfied, not full. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    When it comes to eating, it is important to listen to your body's signals. Eating until you feel satisfied, rather than full, is the correct approach. Feeling satisfied means that you have had enough to eat and are no longer hungry, but you are not overly stuffed or uncomfortable. This allows your body to properly digest the food and prevents overeating, which can lead to weight gain and other health issues. Therefore, the statement "You should stop eating when you feel satisfied, not full" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Why will using smaller plates, bowls, and glasses help you with portion control?

    • A.

      Smaller plates and bowls make it look like there is more food on your plate.

    • B.

      You will feel bigger in comparison to the small plates.

    • C.

      It's fun to use tiny plates.

    Correct Answer
    A. Smaller plates and bowls make it look like there is more food on your plate.
    Explanation
    Using smaller plates, bowls, and glasses can help with portion control because they create an optical illusion that there is more food on your plate. When you serve food on a smaller plate, it fills up the plate more, making it appear like a larger portion. This can trick your brain into feeling satisfied with a smaller amount of food. By using smaller plates and bowls, you can control your portion sizes and potentially consume fewer calories without feeling deprived.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Which of the following is NOT a good way to manage portion control?

    • A.

      Measure a fixed amount of some foods and drinks to see what they look like in your glasses and plates

    • B.

      When eating out, order the smaller size option.

    • C.

      If you tend to overeat, be aware of the time of day, place, and your mood while eating so you can better control the amount you eat.

    • D.

      Eat really quickly and race your friends.

    Correct Answer
    D. Eat really quickly and race your friends.
    Explanation
    Eating really quickly and racing your friends is not a good way to manage portion control because it can lead to mindless eating and overeating. When we eat quickly, we tend to eat more than we actually need because our brain doesn't have enough time to register that we are full. Additionally, racing with friends can create a competitive atmosphere that encourages eating quickly and disregarding portion sizes. It is important to eat mindfully, paying attention to our body's hunger and fullness cues, in order to manage portion control effectively.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Eating in front of the TV will distract you from your food long enough that you'll actually end up eating less. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Eating in front of the TV does not necessarily result in eating less. In fact, it can often lead to mindless eating where individuals are less aware of the amount of food they are consuming. Distractions like watching TV can also lead to eating more, as people may continue to snack even after they are full. Therefore, the statement that eating in front of the TV will make you eat less is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    What are some lifestyle choices you can make to help you stay on track with your nutrition goals?

    • A.

      Make food the main attraction at meals.

    • B.

      Plan your meals in advance.

    • C.

      Take time to enjoy your food.

    • D.

      Make eating a game and race your friends to see who can finish their plate first.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Make food the main attraction at meals.
    B. Plan your meals in advance.
    C. Take time to enjoy your food.
    Explanation
    These lifestyle choices can help individuals stay on track with their nutrition goals because they encourage mindful eating. Making food the main attraction at meals means focusing on the quality and enjoyment of the food, rather than distractions like television or electronic devices. Planning meals in advance ensures that nutritious options are readily available and reduces the likelihood of making unhealthy choices. Taking time to enjoy food promotes mindful eating, allowing individuals to savor the flavors and textures, and recognize feelings of fullness. Racing to finish a plate quickly may lead to overeating and not paying attention to hunger cues, which can hinder nutrition goals.
