Younger or Older?

“You are never too old to become younger!”~Mae West

Today I took the RealAge test.

The Tagline of the RealAge Website is "Live Life to the Youngest". The basic concept is that your biological age is not necessarily the same as your chronological age; it can be higher or lower depending on your family history and lifestyle.

The test has 132 questions divided into the categories of Health, Habits, Relationships, Diet, and Fitness. It took a little over 15 minutes to complete. When I was done, they sent me an e-mail with a link to the test results. I was amazed to find out that my RealAge was a little over four years younger than my calendar age! I guess my lack of bad habits pays off now and then.

My plan did suggest I should take more vitamins and eat more fish, but eat less red meat. I guess nobody's perfect...


  1. I'm 24 years old - a difference of six years for me! That's generally what I hit on Wii Fit as well...though I know that I need to be more active.

  2. I tried it as well - I'm really 37, and my real age was 34.

  3. Either the readers of this blog are extremely healthy and take good care of their bodies :-) or the test skews young.
