Do you want to know how long you will live? Take this Longevity Quiz that exposes your actual life expectancy with an accurate analysis.
What Is the Longevity Quiz?
The Longevity Quiz is a life expectancy calculator. It identifies how long you might live based on your age, weight, genetics, and lifestyle.
In case you wonder, the average life expectancy in the US is 79.11. This is 2.3% higher than in the COVID-19 era when the longevity expectation dropped to 77.28.
What Are Some Signs of Longevity Decline?
Loss of muscle mass or vitamin deficiency are two early signs of declining longevity. If your chair stand time (CST) is high, or you’re a male with a < 66 lbs or a woman with a <44 lbs hand grip, you’re at risk of losing muscle mass. Additionally, if you lack essential vitamins like D, your life expectancy is already declining.
How Can You Increase Longevity?
Dr. Eric Berg DC, a nutrition specialist and the author of The Healthy Keto Plan, claims that balancing vitamin D, doing resistance exercises, eating nutrition-dense foods and quality proteins, and keeping cortisol and adrenaline levels low can help you live longer.
However, Dr. Berg also claims that having a prolonged-life mindset is essential. According to him, multiple studies have confirmed that people with a peaceful state of mind have been outliving those with excessive anxiety and fear.
So, to summarize:
- Take vitamin supplements (after consulting with your doctor).
- Do resistance workouts.
- Eat nutritious foods.
- Keep the cortisol and adrenaline levels low.
- Build a longevity mindset.
How Should You Interpret the Life-Expectancy Test Results?
In the Longevity Quiz, a high score means you’re likely to outlive most of your peers. And consequently, low scores imply shorter life expectancy.
Note that there is no scientific method for accurately calculating longevity. Scientists use the epigenetic clock to see how fast a person is aging compared to their age. But even that won’t leave you with a clear life expectancy score.
What you get on this quiz is a longevity estimation based on age-effecting factors. Do not take the results for granted, and please refrain from overthinking low scores or worrying about them. Instead, take them as a warning sign to improve your lifestyle and live a healthy life.
How to Play?
Playing personality quizzes is straightforward: Choose the option that’s true about you—or you relate to—and select “Next.” Unlike trivia quizzes, personality tests have no right or wrong answers. But the questions are in forced-choice format. The point is to push you to choose an option that makes the most sense, not the one that’s 100% true. For the most accurate results, don’t overthink your responses. Go with options that you “feel” are the best.
