Quiz Outcomes

  • 1.
    Intuitive Eating
    The Intuitive Eater is guided almost effortlessly in his/her food choices and behaviours without struggling through nutritional arithmetic or elaborate self-negotiations. It takes time to hone this approach, but it is the most enjoyable and reliable way of staying in control of food decisions and avoiding destabilizing triggers.
  • 2.
    Systematic Behaviour Change
    This is a goal-centred, step-wise approach to improving your habits and choices in an observable way. You remain pro-active and accountable with tracking systems and reminder tools that help you make progressive small steps towards correcting self-assessed weak points.
  • 3.
    Balanced Food Lifestyle
    Make 'everything in moderation' your reality and improve your health in a balanced, unobsessive way. There are several diet patterns vetted by science to improve risks of chronic disease without the need to exclude any food or food group. This pattern allows for flexible choices and relies on making sure to include specific amounts of helpful foods on a daily or weekly basis. The Mediterranean, DASH, and MIND diet fit this approach.
  • 4.
    Bio-hacker
    For those who value a more deterministic, structured, and intense approach, experimental diet patterns such as Paleo, Keto, Intermittent Fasting, or Lo/High Carb are helpful in creating clear guidelines of eating that prevent the mechanics of the slippery slope phenomenon. Most people 'try' these eating styles for short short durations in order to achieve weight loss, but these ways of eating or only effective for those who espouse them as a long-term lifestyle that feels empowering rather than restrictive. Otherwise, these approaches can devolve into disordered eating patterns fueled by insatiable cravings and binges.
  • 5.
    Plant Based
    Plant-based eating ranges from moderate (Mediterranean) to devoted (Vegan). These are the most effective choices for protecting against heart disease and cancer, but they require some degree of education and supplementation to prevent nutritional deficiencies. This lifestyle also relies on culinary interest in developing ideas and techniques to substitute for traditional animal-based foods. Well-crafted plant-based diets have the potential to optimize health and weight, but exclusion of all animal products may not be ideal for supporting brain and mental health.
