First, the answers… these are all based on research I did online. I’ve shared some of my links with you below.

1. YES (It’s just like how a ton of feathers weighs as much as a ton of bricks. A calorie is a unit of energy contained in the food you consume. It does not, however, count nutritional content. So, you may eat something that is low-calorie, but does nothing good for body.But, you could also eat extremely healthy food and still gain weight because you don’t burn any of those calories.)

2. 4:30PM (This is ’round about the time our tummies start a-rumblin’. Smart snacking is key, losers!)

3. SWIMMING burns more calories. (light/moderate swimming = 590-863, jogging = 413-604, light/moderate cycling = 413-604 calories.  Find out about more activities here. )

4. 1 medium MANGO has more calories. (Different sites have different calculations but most say banana = 105 calories,  mango = 107 calories — beware! It’s also much higher in sugar content! For a free calorie counter, click here.)

5. It contains less than 0.5 grams of total fat. (Remember to check your food labels! Low fat may not mean low calorie!)

6. The Starbucks Walnut Bran Muffin has 430 calories. The Dunkin Strawberry Donut only has 240 calories.

7. FALSE
(No foods can burn fat.  Some foods with caffeine may speed up your metabolism — the way your body uses energy or calories — for a short time, but they do not cause weight loss. Click here for more diet myths uncovered.)

8. You need to consume 3,500 calories for an extra pound of body fat.

9. 8 ounces of RED WINE has more calories. (red = 150 calories, white = 140 calories — small, but if you’re really watching your calories, it counts!)

10. FALSE
(Lifting weights on a regular basis can actually help you maintain or lose weight. These activities can help you build muscle, and muscle burns more calories than body fat. So if you have more muscle, you burn more calories — even sitting still. Doing strengthening activities 2 or 3 days a week will not “bulk you up.” Only intense strength training, combined with a certain genetic background, can build very large muscles.)

So, our winner is… with 8 out of 10 correct answers

Congratulations, CHUNKY MONKEY! By the way, sure I’ll make dark meat for you. But white meat is still healthier!

We were CRINK’D! Once again, temptation reared it’s big, fat head from a certain Mr. Bottomfeeder… erm, Fingerbottom. Is this a form of generosity or sabotage?
