Mostly As: Congratulations! You're an infant and probably have the metabolism of a 14 year old. You've been good
to your body, and guess what, your body will be good to you in return, keeping you younger for longer. What you
need to do is to keep it up. The process of ageing is only natural and we all have to go through it. However, you
seem to know what to do.

Mostly Bs: You're walking the fine line between being healthy and slipping. You know what you have to do but
probably get caught with the rush of everyday life, juggling work and personal life. Take some time out and reevaluate
your priorities. Planning is key. With a little bit of organizing, you can get back on track and get your health in
order. It isn't too much to ask for if you want to keep fit and stay younger.

Mostly Cs: Whoa! You have to put the brakes on your life and slow it down several notches. Right now your life is
mad with activity and you're paying no attention to your body, the thing that's sustaining you. You've got to take a
hold of the situation before it slips out of control. Remember, your body is your temple and it is what's going
to get you through till the end. The first thing you need to do is fix your eating habits. Trust me, once you do that,
everything else starts to fall in place. Next would be exercise. No need to hit the gym or take up martial arts
classes. Start with baby steps. Take the stairs instead of the elevator. Go fetch your own print outs. Walk to the
supermarket instead of driving. Just start using those limbs. You need to take stock if you don't want the first wrinkle
arriving before you hit thirty five.
