Did you know that Paleo will make you old?

Not really, but I thought you'd find this amusing. I was bored at work today so I took one of those online quizzes that determines your "real" age (it's OK, I work for myself). It had a lot of questions, and I answered them straight up with my current paleo lifestyle. Turns out my "real" age is 54, which, since I'm actually 57, didn't seem too bad.

Then, because I really was bored, I decided to take it again, but to make my answers pre-paleo. All I changed was that I ate at least 5 servings of whole grain daily, red meat once or less a week, and non-fat dairy products daily. I also put down that I exercised at a challenging cardio pace at least 5 times a week. Guess what -- doing all these things, my "real" age is 48!!!

Of course, that includes daily heartburn, 10 extra pounds, constipation, and a few other things I've mercifully forgotten about.

Amusing -- or maybe not.

@zot, it IS amusing and I'm not voting to close. I admit the connection to "paleo" is slim, but you did run it both the SAD and paleo way and it's intriguing to speculate about what caused your age to come out lower via the SAD version.

sorry, I guess I didn't understand the protocol. Maybe I should be on another board, I just thought this was so amusing...

Doesn't seem to be a real question here...

I can remember taking that quiz and I scored very well... Back when I felt like crap!

The test probably figures that whole grains and chronic cardio are good and that red meat and dairy fat are bad. I wouldn't put much stock in it.
