December Quiz Results: Weight Loss Myths

In last month's quiz, we asked you about some popular weight loss myths that we hear on a regular basis.  There is so much information and so many opinions out there, sometimes it's hard to keep track, but overall, you did pretty well!  Here are the results:

Question 1: True or False? Steady state low intensity exercise for a longer period of time will help you lose more weight than shorter duration moderate intensity exercise because it burns more fat.
Answer: False
While low intensity exercise can actually help burn more fat than high intensity, the total caloric burn will be higher in the later situation (shorter duration moderate-high intensity exercise).
