MSNBC is currently providing an excellent health quiz that lets you determine your actual biological age based on your lifestyle habits. I'm 23 in real life and 31 on the quiz, mostly due to my weight. Bad, but honestly not as bad as I thought. ;-) Minor quibble: In the recommendations section, since I listed several stress factors in the past year in my life, the quiz recommended that I cultivate more friendships to better handle stress. Wtf? I put in that I had more than ten close friends, the maximum option.

Hasn't this been done already with realage.com?

Ah, I see. It IS the RealAge stuff.

I am actually 21.8 years old, and they say my RealAge is 23. Not too bad.

I'm NOT eating more fish. Fish is yucky.

Fish kicks ass. Fish is a supreme food. If fish and beef had a fight, beef would run away; that's how seriously better fish is than other kinds of food.

Wow this is odd, I'm really 13 years old... They said I was too stressed and need more friends even though there has been nothing too stressful in my life recently and I marked the second highest amout of close friends... But I eat enough fish =)

I forgot to mention that Kelly and I also tried to break the system, and succeeded. We created a child that was 18 months old, 999 pounds, 6 feet in height, had ALL of the diseases (I can understand the depression/anxiety after suffering diabetes, prostate cancer, asthma, and other ailments), smoked for 17 months, and ate breakfast 20 times a week. But the system glitched and it only reported the baby's actual age. Would have been cool. :-)

Why is fish supreme? I'm curious.

I'm not touting beef over fish, by the way. I'm not keen on any meat really, unless it's at it's most unhealthy, like the salted cured meats.
