Total up your scores and read what your answer tells about you and your health.

0-10: You are a complete health freak and almost unbelievably disciplined. You make sure that you live a healthy life and your health must be in tip-top condition – whether it is to do with your diet, exercise or daily. You are likely to have undergone health checkup. Well done and continue the good work but you’re able to relax a bit.

11-22: You would consider yourself relatively healthy with the rather healthy and normal lifestyle you live. You are well aware what constitute a healthy lifestyle although at times you allow yourself some liberty to let loose. Do not let yourself slack and you could even improve your health further.

23-34: You think life is too short not to have fun and enjoy. So although you know health is important, you constantly succumb to indulging in pleasures and temptations in life easily and as a result, your health tend to take a back seat. It’s time to set a resolution and buck up with exercises and good diet again.

35-45: You are seriously courting danger with your life! Chances are your body has already been sending signals of health problems if you are not already suffering from the consequences of your careless and irresponsible lifestyle. You really need to take heed and do something before it’s too late!
