Recommendations

YOU SLEEP A LITTLE LESS THAN AVERAGE. IF YOU DON'T FEEL WELL RESTED, TRY TO GET A LITTLE MORE SLEEP.
Sleep is an important way in which the body regulates itself. Although you may be getting the right amount of sleep, getting too little can be stressful to your body. You might try going to sleep a little earlier and sticking to this same regular sleep schedule every day.

BEGIN A WEIGHT-LOSS PROGRAMME THAT YOU CAN SUSTAIN.

YOUR HEART RATE IS FASTER THAN NORMAL, SO IT MAY BE BEST TO TAKE STEPS TO LOWER IT

MONITOR YOUR ASTHMA. TAKE YOUR ASTHMA MEDICATION AS DIRECTED.

FLOSS EVERY DAY.

DRINKING ONE-HALF TO ONE UNIT OF ALCOHOL PER DAY MAY BE BENEFICIAL.
For most people, moderate alcohol consumption (1/2 - 1 units a day) slows the aging process.

EAT A HEALTHY BREAKFAST EVERY DAY.
A daily breakfast helps you sustain energy levels and maintain your weight.

FOR MAXIMUM HEALTH BENEFITS, INCREASE YOUR GRAIN INTAKE.

FOR MAXIMUM HEALTH BENEFITS INCREASE YOUR VEGETABLE INTAKE.

IF POSSIBLE, ADD FISH OR OTHER SOURCES OF OMEGA-3 FATTY ACIDS TO YOUR DIET SEVERAL TIMES A WEEK.

YOUR WORKOUT MAY BE PERFECT FOR YOU. IF YOU ARE NOT GETTING THE RESULTS YOU WANT, TRY INCREASING YOUR TIME SPENT DOING AEROBIC, STRENGTH-TRAINING, AND FLEXIBILITY-TRAINING EXERCISES.
Adding aerobic activities, such as dancing, jogging, skipping, swimming, playing soccer, or riding a bike, to your weekly routine can improve your cardiovascular fitness.
Depending on your health, you may need to spend more time every week performing strength-building exercises and activities. Strength-building activities include weight lifting, working with exercise bands, push-ups, sit-ups, and Pilates.

Efforts to improve and maintain your flexibility may help your balance, protect your body from injury, and are an important complement to strength-building activities.

AVOID THE CYCLE OF REPEATED WEIGHT LOSS AND WEIGHT GAIN.
This affects your calculation because your weight has gone up and down like a yo-yo.


I aged more filling in the survey! Bit of a waste of time for me.



Yes, it's me. I'm back.



I haven't lost my mind, it's backed up on a disk somewhere

I think the minimum age for it to calculate, was 21. But I think you can skip those questions to complete the test, you usually can with these BBC quizzes.

Your 'real age' is:

Difference:
19.5, but you could be younger!
21.5
-2.0 Your Personalized Recommendations
What can you do to start growing younger? Read the personal recommendations and benefits below to see how simple choices can affect your rate of aging. BenefitsYOU'RE PROBABLY IN GOOD HEALTH. HOWEVER, IF YOU WERE TO MAKE HEALTH AND LIFESTYLE CHANGES, YOU COULD PROBABLY MAKE YOUR HEALTH EVEN BETTER.
Even though you're probably in good health, your 'real age' is not as young as it could be, because you judged your overall health to be average. Studies show that most people are pretty good at judging the general state of their own health.

GOOD JOB! YOU'RE PROBABLY GETTING A GOOD NIGHT'S SLEEP.
Sleep is an important way in which the body regulates itself. Getting too little sleep can stress your body. If you don't feel well rested, go to sleep a little earlier and stick to a regular sleep schedule every day.

GOOD JOB! YOUR HEART RATE IS IN THE HEALTHY RANGE. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.
A heart rate of 50-75 bpm usually indicates a healthy heart and blood vessels, and a good fitness level.

YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE IS IN THE HEALTHY RANGE.
Great job - your blood pressure is at or below 120/80 mm Hg. If you are taking medicine that lowers your blood pressure, keep doing so.

KEEP UP THE SMART FLOSSING HABITS!
Flossing every day can help prevent periodontal disease and needless aging.

IT'S GREAT THAT YOU DON'T SMOKE! CONTINUE NOT TO SMOKE.
Smoking ages the arteries and causes many diseases. If you used to smoke and quit, this dramatically reverses much of the aging effects of smoking and quickly makes your 'real age' younger.

GOOD JOB! CONTINUE TO MINIMISE YOUR EXPOSURE TO SECONDHAND SMOKE.
You do not have to smoke to be harmed by the effects of smoking. Secondhand smoke can cause cancer, heart disease, and lung disease. Because you are rarely, if ever, exposed to secondhand smoke, your 'real age' is younger.

GOOD JOB! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK BY CONTINUING TO DRIVE AT A SAFE SPEED.
Driving less than 5 mph over the speed limit lowers your chance of having a fatal or disabling motor accident and protects the health of others, too.

ALWAYS WEAR YOUR SEAT BELT, AND TRY TO HAVE AIR-BAG PROTECTION EVERY TIME YOU'RE IN A MOTOR VEHICLE.
The use of seat belts prevents serious injury and death from motor vehicle accidents. Air bags are extra protection for most people.

CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR HAPPY MARRIAGE OR STABLE RELATIONSHIP.
In general, married people, or people in stable relationships, have a younger 'real age'. Marriage and stable relationships can improve social interaction, lower stress, and increase income.

ENJOY YOUR PET!
It is widely agreed that your pet helps you have a better overall sense of well-being.

GOOD JOB! CONTINUE TO EAT BREAKFAST EVERY DAY.
A daily nutrient-rich breakfast helps keep you strong, slim, and healthy.

GREAT JOB! YOU ARE EATING THE OPTIMAL AMOUNT OF GRAINS DAILY.
You are successfully consuming the optimal amount of grains to keep your 'real age' young. By eating 6-11 servings of whole grains a day you are building a diet based on this high-fibre food group.

EXCELLENT! YOU ARE EATING THE OPTIMAL AMOUNT OF FRUIT DAILY.
You are maximizing the health benefits associated with fruit consumption. By eating 2-4 pieces of whole fruit a day, you have made your 'real age' younger. Well done!

THANK YOU FOR NOT DRINKING AND DRIVING.
Thank you for being responsible by not drinking and driving or riding in a motor vehicle with a driver under the influence of alcohol.


RecommendationsYOU MIGHT CONSIDER GAINING SOME WEIGHT.
Body mass index is a pretty good way of judging whether you're the right weight for your height. However, it's not always a true indicator of health. Your thinness could be your natural body state. A low BMI could also indicate illness or excessive exercising or dieting. Your BMI is lower than ideal.

FOR MAXIMUM HEALTH BENEFIT


Nonono, you don't understand, that is NOT why I have this gerbil!
