7-10 pts. DANGER ZONE. Try a sport or activity you enjoy and make it a part of your life. Exercise more and start eating right. You will have more energy and be more aware of your body. Your body needs care, so treat it right and it will do the same for you.
11-16 pts. You need improvement. It is important for you to be more aware of your body. You are on the verge of being in the danger zone.
17-26 pts. You are probably conscious enough of your body that you do not need people to tell you what is right to eat and when to exercise. Keep up the healthy habits and you'll continue to have energy and strength.
27-37 pts. You are very active and you think a lot about your body. This is good just be careful. If you are overactive and always trying to lose weight, you may be hurting your body more than helping it. Always allow yourself adequate fats and sugars and do not lose to much weight at once. Sometimes your body needs rest too. Teenagers especially need to pay attention to this.
