For me my score was 9-12 points I think mainly because of my food combining and eating only 2 meals a day but I am happy with that score! emoticon

“RATE YOUR EATING HABITS” QUIZ



To really see if you are eating the proper serving of each of the five food groups (Grains, Fruit, Vegetable health-quizzes, Dairy, and Protein Foods, i.e., meats/fish etc.), challenge yourself and take the following quiz to rate your eating habits.

On most days do you:

Eat 6 to 11 servings of grains (breads, cereal, rice, pasta, and other grain foods)? One serving equals one slice of bread, 1/2 cup of rice or pasta, 1 ounce of cereal, or half a bagel.

Yes = 3 No = 0

Eat at least 2 servings of fruit? One serving equals 1 piece of fruit, 1/2 cup of chopped, cooked, or canned fruit, or 3/4 cup of fruit juice.

Yes = 3 No = 0

Eat at least 3 servings of vegetables each day? One serving equals 1/2 cup of cooked or chopped vegetables, 1 cup of raw, leafy vegetables, or 3/4 cup of vegetable juice.

Yes = 3 No = 0

Generally eat the same foods every day?

Yes = 0 No = 3

Eat 2 or more servings of raw dairy foods such as raw, unpasteurized milk, cheese, and yogurt each day?
One servings equals 1 cup of milk or yogurt, 11/2 ounces of natural cheese, or 2 ounces of processed cheese.

Yes = 3 No = 0

Eat 2 to 3 servings of lean meat, poultry, fish, dry beans, eggs, or nuts every day?
One serving equals 2 to 3 ounces of cooked lean meat, poultry, or fish. One egg, 1/2 cup of cooked beans, or 2 tablespoons of peanut butter count as 1 ounce of meat.

Yes = 3 No = 0

Frequently skip meals or miss out on one or more food groups for the entire day?

Yes = 0 No = 3

SCORING:

15 points or more: Food Guru and Food/Nutrition Expert. You know how to make wise food choices and get the variety of foods important for a healthy eating plan.

9-12 points: You’re on your way… You could be getting more nutrients by fine-tuning your food selections. For example, if you fall short in the grains group, try including at least one more serving of grains daily.

0-6 points: Keep trying! By making small changes, you can gradually improve your eating pattern. Review the Food Guide Pyramid guidelines. Focus on one food group at a time, and aim to eat the minimum number of servings for that group each day.

And while nutrient rich food is the best way to obtain vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients, you may benefit from a multivitamin/mineral supplement if you are unable to eat from all the food groups.

Whether you are a Food expert or need to brush up on your nutrition “know-how,” the more you learn about choosing a healthful eating plan, the easier it is to do. By selecting a wide variety of foods from each of the five food groups, you can get all the nutrients that our current food supply has to offer and give your body a great start each day to what it needs.
However, even people with the best intentions sometimes fall short on their nutrient intake.

For some people a vitamin/mineral supplement offers benefits that are both safe and effective. A vitamin/mineral supplement may help when:

your hectic lifestyle frequently keeps you from eating the recommended number of servings from the five food groups,
you are on a very low-calorie weight loss diet,
you are elderly and not eating as much as you should,
you eat out more than 1-2 times per week,
you eat food that’s boxed, canned, microwaved, or otherwise processed,
you generally think you eat well

I THOUGHT I ATE WELL…

If you eat out regularly; shop at typical grocery stores; and don’t read the labels of the food you’re eating; or know how your food is being prepared; then the nutritive value of your food is greatly compromised, not to mention your safety.

A few factors typical of the “food” commercially available in all grocery stores and restaurants:

Microwaving
Food coloring
Flash Freezing
Genetic engineering
Synthetic additives
Preservatives
Hormones and antibiotics (found in meat, chicken, etc.) Produce grown in soil that has been robbed of its nutrients
Harmful chemicals and metals (such as pcb’s and mercury in some fish)

If any of these are involved in the creation or processing of your food, then what you are eating is really just “disguised” as food. Not only does this “food” have insufficient nutritional value, it may also contain toxins which work against your body and your health.

In contrast, whole foods that have not been altered or contaminated contain genuine replacement parts as part of Nature’s design.
