We're living in age of metabolically induced body system dysfunctions.

 

What that means is that as a society generally we're not eating enough of the right food at the right time.

 

In earlier times the sage might have said that it was the love of junk food that was the root of all kinds of evil. Certainly it is now the root of all kinds of body system dysfunction.

 

However, the good news is that if the body has become compromised by poor food choices (keeping in mind that that the food industry is struggling to deliver food in all its nutritional glory), then there is a good chance that the body's recuperative power can be stimulated by a diet of good food.

 

Give yourself a score out of 10 for each of the questions below. A good score is a high score.

 

1.    Body composition

Are you carrying extra fat around your body? Scores based on percent body fat or how many kilos you believe you are over your ideal weight.
