    You'd benefit from some extra attention to your eating habits.
    You haven't given much thought to your diet, and perhaps you don't see the benefit of eating healthier. Did you know your diet can affect more than just your weight? The sooner you start eating foods that support your energy, the sooner you'll be able to start fully enjoying your life. While eating healthy isn't really something you've thought about before, maybe you're willing to look into it a bit now that you've taken this quiz. Congratulations on taking that first step!

    You've got a great attitude about your healthy diet!
    You’ve got a good attitude, choosing mostly nutritious foods and occasionally indulging without guilt. You eat with awareness, enjoying food and listening to your body’s hunger and fullness signals. Even if you identify yourself as "Paleo", "vegetarian", or "low carb" (just to name a few!), you realize that there's more to health than just eating a perfect diet, and that there's more to life than just pursuing perfect health. I applaud you for having a great attitude about your healthy diet! Keep it up!

    You're likely being too restrictive.
    You've been doing everything you can to make your diet perfect, but you're not really sure it's done you any good. You've cut out a lot of foods that you used to enjoy, and at this point your diet is almost the same exact foods every day. What's worse, you don't really feel like the restrictions have given you long-lasting health benefits. You may even be wondering if you've made a good decision changing your diet in the first place. Whether or not your diet is "healthy" on paper, you don't feel healthy and you're certainly not happy.
