    Having just completed the "My Health" section, having been invited to. I finished up with a score of 53 !! There is just one problem, the questioner doesn't provide for any explanation of your medical history/ problems other than the standard. Hence the score is meaningless for people such as

    How to see progress over time?

    I've been using this site for over a year. I come here every so often to update my Q score. After that I look at the 'my health' graphs but it never shows my ongoing progress. It only shows where I am 'now'. I would love to see how my Q score has changed since I started, along with my weight graphs etc,...

    I did the health exam today. I was dismayed to find that the old, now discredited, saturated fat risk myth is being upheld by the program designers.  Attention to the consumption of seed oils should be paramount in the exam given their dire health consequences. Another area not receiving attention

    A reduction of 3.4 BMI doesn't affect the Q score

    My score is 70.  I've committed to improving my diet to reduce my BMI from 27.4 to 24, but my score will remain 70.  While I appreciate that because my bio-stats are all ideal, a reduction of 3.4 BMI won't greatly affect my cardiovascular risk.  However, I'm losing weight to reduce the pressure on

    I have just done your health check test and i got a score of 69. One of the big areas to improve was my diet which is fair enough, the other was weight or BMI.

    Drink fruit juice??

    My Q score summary told me to drink fruit juice, but there's a lot of talk now about fruit juice - even too much fruit - containing far too much fructose, and this causing adverse blood sugar levels. Are you not aware of this?

    My goals include a weight related one. Why?

    According to this survey, "Your weight is in the optimum zone for your height and gender." So why has it been flagged up as something I need to address? In fact it suggests I put on weight in my 'goal'. Why, if my weight is in the optimum zone? Doesn't make sense to me. As a competitive person

    How can you say I'm healthy?

    The reason I have a "healthy" body weight is cancer. I had my oesophagus and part of my stomach removed three years ago because of adenocarcinoma. I can only eat small amounts. Some foods I can't swallow, and some I can't digest.. I eat some unhealthy food because it's better than nothing.

    Qscore questionnaire is not appropriate.

    I stopped half way through this when I realised it was going to be based on the old cant of eating too much cholesterol. I can find no validated scientific evidence which proves a CAUSAL link between weight gain and eating fats. I have a chronic fatigue syndrome and diabetes. After many years and

    How can you check your details?

    I've just signed up for this site and I can't find how you contact the people who run it to check any user information. I can't find where you can check and change details on-line either. It may be that this information is available but I just can't see it. (I think they think I'm female and I'm not)!...
