Today, I went to the real age website to get a calculation of my real age. It turns out that my real age is 24.9.(LOL) I think that is a good real age don't you think? However, I didn't totally agree with it saying that I had a low vegetable and grain intake. I eat my vegetables and grains now. (LOL) They or I must of miscalculated that. However, I know that everyone can use some improvement and that includes me too. I thought taking the real age test was fun. It does have some good tips. If you would like to see my real age results see below:

By December 21, 2007, you could look and feel 3 years YOUNGER than today!

Calendar

Age

Difference

My RealAge

Today 31.0

-6.1 24.9

December 21, 2007 31.3

-9.2 22.1

In 3 years 34.0

-7.7 26.3

What's Making Your Real Age Younger?

Good sleep levels

Positive attitude

Limited or no secondhand smoke exposure

Parents relationship

Medication use

Flexibility routine

Correct fruit servings

Daily vitamin

Ideal BMI

Good omega-3 intake

Folic acid intake

Breast cancer history

No drinking and driving

Distances traveled

Safe driving speeds

Good oral hygiene

Nonsmoker

Low red meat intake

Diverse diet

No ovarian cancer in family

Vitamin C intake

What's making your real age older?

Lack of daily breakfast

Blood pressure control

Low unsaturated fat

Calcium intake

Workout schedule

Have cholesterol level measured

Potassium levels

Low grain intake

Low vegetable intake

Social network and stress

Strength training level

Vitamin E intake

Flossing habits

You too can find out your real age by going to real age.com. All in all I think that this is a good website. I give it a thumbs up. You can also send it to your family and friends and have them take the real age test.

The key is to age gracefully because that is what we should all aim to do. We have to age so let's do it gracefully.

A friend of mine watched a segment of Oprah last week on slowing down aging. They apparently did an intensive exam - stress test, EKG, bone density, body fat, etc. - on two women to find out their "real" age. Both women were in their 40s, I think she said, but came in at least 10 years older than their chronological age.

After talking to her, I clicked around on Oprah's website and read about the show to find a book that was featured on foods that slow the aging process (caffeinated coffee made through a paper filter was one and baby aspirins sure seem to be a miracle drug). In doing so I found this age test. I thought it was pretty interesting - it assumes you know your cholesterol levels and blood pressure and asks a lot of lifestyle questions. Here it is if you're interested.

I just turned 40, but came in at 32 (would be 31 if I drove slower, but that ain't gonna happen). Taking calcium would lower it too.

Wow... I expected to be a bit older. I just turned 32 but my real age is 27. I am guessing it is the diet and supplements that helps me (lots of veggies and lots of fish).

Thank you letiole, what a way cool test.

I am 60 but came in at 47. http://www.flyertalk.com/travel/fttravel_forum/biggrin.gif http://www.flyertalk.com/travel/fttravel_forum/biggrin.gif I could be 46 if I reduced red wine consumption to 1/2 glass per day. I don't quite think that is really worth it. http://www.flyertalk.com/travel/fttravel_forum/wink.gif

Do you think this test would work for men?

Are you still doing P90?

I thought it was pretty cool too. I ordered the Superfoods Rx book that was mentioned on the show. Overstock.com has it cheap if anyone else is interested and shipping's only $1 right now.

Punki: Yes, the quiz works for men too. The second question, I think it is, asks your gender. Rod's 41 and came it at 33.

I've memorized the weight part of P90 and do that regularly and I do the crunches daily. I fall off on the aerobics frequently, but usually I do something else - ride a bike, go take a power class at the yoga center. I can't wait til the rain goes away so I can play tennis again. I really don't like exercise just for the sake of exercise, but I know I gotta do it. http://www.flyertalk.com/travel/fttravel_forum/frown.gif

Wow, my chronological and real age are exactly the same at 30 - virtually down to the decimal point.

Surprised I wasn't older due to my lack of exercise and poor diet.

But can I just say, very US based test - lots of assumptions that I take any vitamin supplements at all!

I agree that some of the questions could have been worded better. I don't take vitamin supplements but get my vitamins from my diet. I don't eat fish, but I do get Omega-3s from other sources and I'm assuming that's what they're looking at there. I didn't understand the tomato paste question at all. ??

This test is a lot of fun! I have been playing with it but I can't figure out how to get the results to go as low as others did. It seems that if I put in a starting age of 60, there is no possible combination of answers that will yield 46. I'm dying to show this to my friend's grandmother as she's very interested. Punki, please tell me how you did it!

I would suspect, AnnaS, that you were probably trying the short test. With that I am 53. http://www.flyertalk.com/travel/fttravel_forum/frown.gif http://www.flyertalk.com/travel/fttravel_forum/frown.gif

I am glad I went through all the hassel of gathering all the data for the long version. http://www.flyertalk.com/travel/fttravel_forum/wink.gif I thought the test took a long time, but certainly not the six years that it saved me. http://www.flyertalk.com/travel/fttravel_forum/smile.gif

We just long-tested Hunki, and he (who is 62) showed up as 51 in real age. He eats red meat and doesn't take vitamins or eat fish as often as I. (I am working on him.) http://www.flyertalk.com/travel/fttravel_forum/wink.gif

While Hunki assures me that we are our sports medicine Doc's "Model Senior Couple" (he actually uses us as an example to try to get younger patients to turn their lives around), I still worry a bit about him (Hunki that is). My life expectancy is 94 and his is only 87, which would mean I would have to train another dance partner for the last 5 years of my life. http://www.flyertalk.com/travel/fttravel_forum/eek.gif No man could ever be able to learn all those dances in only 5 short years, let alone get good at them.

Maybe we can blow the odds and still be dancing at 100. http://www.flyertalk.com/travel/fttravel_forum/biggrin.gif http://www.flyertalk.com/travel/fttravel_forum/biggrin.gif My Mom was still doing competitive dance at 82.

The most amazing value of this test (both the long and short version) is to give younger folks an indicator of how they are doing with their life styles. While I would pray that it could happen, I doubt very seriously if there are many folks our age who have lived a fairly long unhealthy life, who will turn their lifestyle around, short of suffering a stroke or heart attack.

Younger folks (under 30, 40 or even 50) who take this test and don't get stellar results, still have a chance to turn their lives around. They can lose weight, work out, improve their diet and learn to live a really active and healthy life--dramatically expanding their enjoyment of life, as well as their longevity.

Came in with 21.95 and I'm 23. I'm sure my real age will be much higher than my actual age - I don't exercise that much.

Neat test... I got 21.05 as a "real age" (I'm 27). Guess all the vitamens and going to the gym count for a lot in their test.

I didn't understand the tomato paste question at all. ??

[This message has been edited by letiole (edited Feb 23, 2004).]

Lycopenes. There is some evidence that they protect against prostate cancer. Tomatoes are about the best natural source, and cooked is better than raw in this case, so concentrated and cooked (i.e. tomato paste) would be highest. Interesting that here they asked about getting the nutrient from dietary sources, while everything else (folate, fish oil, vit C...) they asked about supplements.

This quiz was fun, but basically it was just asking about known risk factors for heart disease, cancer, and accidents.

Thanks. It's good to finally know the answer to that.

Wow... took this again... I'm 33 now, but "26" on the quiz. How cool to gain a year and lose a year all at once?!

(I think making a LOT of lifestyle changes has helped... I know I will be happier for it later.)

Punki

Good for you, techgirl!

Getting and staying trim, strong and healthy takes a lot of good discipline, but the younger you start, the easier it is to maintain.

Speaking of which, Hunki, is standing here in his work out clothes, encouraging me to get up and join him in a sculpt work out. :D Having a partner who is into good health helps as well.

Wow - so glad someone had revived this - since i last did the test, i have lost 2 stone in weight, radically changed my diet, increased my exercise, been diagnosed with PCOS, moved house and changed job (oh, and been to lots of FT do's! :D)

I'm now 31, nearly 32, and my real age remains at 30 - it could even be as low as 28 if I'm remembering my blood pressure from last health check correctly.

I feel vindicated! :D

(and still not taking vitamin supplements :D, but my diet is way better, and as letiole says, it doesn't actually ask about that - so i guess that makes me even younger :D)

Congratulations, Jenbel on losing 2 stone. I am not exactly sure how much that is, but any weight loss is a great cause for celebration. :D

Even better, that you have started exercising and improved your diet. Those are probably the best things you can do for yourself.

Good on you!

Thank you! And you have been so right about how good it is being able to wear and buy new clothes :D

(It's 28 lbs - hopefully more to come, I'm at home for a spell, and its so much easier to lose weight when i can get back into my routine again).

I'm 40.5 years old but came in at 35.4 years on the test. I could trim a little more off if I drive slower.

I am 54, and the age test says I am 54. I can live with that!

I'm 51 and my age came out 44 - yea! I guess all that exercise and trying to live a "reasonably" healthy life paid off.
