I got a 53, mainly because I don't exercise or eat fish.
Depends on what you're eating and how much.I think that test is a little off, I eat nothing but healty stuff and exercise and those people gave me a 43.

Too little or too much sleep can make us less productive during the day due to daytime fatigue and decreased energy. Try to get seven to eight hours of sleep each night for optimum performance.
You are getting the recommended amount of cardiovascular exercise by the American Heart Association and the American College of Sports Medicine. Great work! Be sure to try different types of exercise to keep your workouts interesting. Keep it fun!
The American Heart Association and the American College of Sports Medicine recommend doing resistance exercise or weight lifting at least twice a week to build strength, tone muscles, and improve balance. If you don't have experience with strength training, you can get books on home resistance training that you can do with dumbbells. Another way to start resistance training is to join a gym. Most gyms include some free personal training sessions to help you to learn to use strength and cardiovascular equipment. Choose a friendly gym that focuses on lifelong fitness. The environment should be comfortable and fun; think inviting, not intimidating.
***Remember, before starting an exercise program, visit your doctor and ask for his/her go-ahead.
You are doing pretty well with staying hydrated, but try to get eight, 8-ounces of water a day. Staying well-hydrated keeps energy levels up, prevents fatigue, improves skin texture, and relieves dryness of the mouth, nose, and eyes.
Stress is a part of our modern lives. Since stress can lead to lower productivity, mood instability, and even illness, stress management needs to be part of our daily routine. By successfully managing stress, we can lead happier lives, improve our vitality, and have more useful time for ourselves and our families.
Try to find time everyday to take part in yoga, meditation, quiet personal time, a spiritual activity, prayer, or a relaxing hobby. You will begin to see a benefit with as few as 15 minutes a day.
SuperFoods Rx recommends that everyone take a daily multivitamin supplement. Due to our inconsistent diets, it can be difficult to obtain all of the recommended vitamins and minerals in the appropriate amounts on a daily basis. Choose a complete multivitamin supplement, and try to find a supplement that also contains phytonutrients from whole foods that complement the basic vitamins and minerals.
Omega-3 fish oil supplement:
SuperFoodsRx applauds your commitment to taking an omega-3 fatty acid supplement everyday. Omega-3 fatty acids have many health benefits for the heart, blood vessels, immune system, and brain. While eating fish is one way to get these important fatty acids, taking an omega-3 fish oil or marine algae supplement with 500 to 1000 mg of omega-3 (including DHA and EPA) can provide even more benefit. Great job!
While some scientific research has shown a slight benefit to moderate alcohol consumption, we are pleased that you are drinking less than one alcoholic drink a week. The reported benefits of alcohol can also be obtained through keeping a healthy weight, eating a balanced diet, and exercising. There is no reason to increase your alcohol consumption. Keep the alcohol at less than one drink a week and take care of yourself. Good work!
