Real Age
Anyone else take this test? I'm fairly happy with my results, but I know I can do better. It's interesting and wakes you up with the results.

My chronological age - 55.5
Real Age Report 50.4

I did it a while ago but don't remember what my "real Age" was. I just did it again but it's telling me I have to wait 1-2 hours for my results...pffft...I won't care anymore in 1-2 hours...

I am 22 and my "real age" is 20.1! So my body is younger than I am!

You can also sign up for an email newsletter with different health tips every week. I signed up several years ago and have enjoyed reading results of various medical studies and nutrition tips.

My calendar age is 32.2 and my "real age" is 31.9. I have a ton of things I need to work on though. I think some of the things are silly- like not knowing my blood pressure is a -. Yeah, I've had it taken recently, but as of today, I don't know it. I'm not going to go out and buy a blood pressure machine just to monitor if I know I don't have a problem.

I thought it was pretty neat, I did it and was VERY happy with the results.

Actual age 53
Real Age 45.5 WOOHOOOO!!!!

I'm a tad bit overweight but other than that lead a very healthy lifestyle (including regular exercise).

The exercise is what makes mine higher. I hate exercise, but I do strength training 3 days a week so that helped.
