I keep wanting to make some sort of diet-myths quiz. It would have questions like:

In the recent study that revealed Atkins dieters lost more weight in one year than people on other types of diets, about how many pounds, on average, did the Atkins dieters lose?

[  ] 6
[x] 10
[  ] 15
[  ] 25
[  ] 50

Immediately followed by:

If you reduced your daily caloric intake by just 100 calories and kept your same level of activity, in one year you could lose about how many pounds?

[  ] 6
[x] 10
[  ] 15
[  ] 25
[  ] 50


The answers (highlight the choices to see) should reveal something about diets, but it would take way too much effort to come up with more.

ETA: And the question I'd thought of yesterday, because I didn't know the answer until I ran across an article on it: how many calories of a baby's diet should come from fat?

[  ] 10-20%
[  ] 20-40%
[x] 30-50%
[  ] 40-60%
[  ] 50-70%
