1 do you eat meat? Y

2, Do you eat breakfast? Y

3, Do you have a fast or slow metabolism? Is this a thing? How would I know?

4, are you overweight? N

5, do you eat more or less than your rda? About right

6, do you consider yourself spiritual? N

7, do you eat differently or similar to your parents/siblings? Similar enough.

8, what would your usual dinner consist of? Carbs (pasta/rice) with vegetables (curry/pasta sauce etc), possibly some meat.

9 would you consider yourself, more left or right brained? I'd consider there to be no such thing. It's a load of old nonsense.

I'm not sure what sort of correlation you're looking for with all of these categorical responses. Where's the bit about personality?

moonfacebaby Tue 25-Mar-14 23:12:09

1 do you eat meat? - yes

2, Do you eat breakfast? - sometimes

3, Do you have a fast or slow metabolism - fast

?4, are you overweight? - no

5, do you eat more or less than your rda? - less

6, do you consider yourself spiritual? - no

7, do you eat differently or similar to your parents/siblings - quite similar but I'm more likely to get into health "fads"(eh. Juicing, herbal teas, cutting things out to improve my psoriasis)

8, what would your usual dinner consist of - this can vary a lot but I'd suppose I do eat pasta twice a week, something spicy (curries generally) & then maybe jacket potatoes. Used to be more adventurous but becoming a single parent in the past year has meant I've lost my cooking mojo as I'm knackered or stressed.

9 would you consider yourself, more left or right brained - definitely right

ErrolTheDragon Tue 25-Mar-14 23:20:58

1 do you eat meat? Yes

2, Do you eat breakfast? Sometimes

3, Do you have a fast or slow metabolism : You mean BMR? Quite low as I'm over 50 and female
?4, are you overweight? No

5, do you eat more or less than your rda? Yes grin - less on fast days, more on weekends, about TDEE on other days

6, do you consider yourself spiritual? No

7, do you eat differently or similar to your parents/siblings: Different to how my parents ate, no idea about sibs.

8, what would your usual dinner consist of : usually some sort of protein, fair bit of veg, moderate brown carbs.

9 would you consider yourself, more left or right brained : No grin - I'm a scientist, from what I've read this concept is a myth. I've got a whole brain, thanks - I'm both creative and rational.

1. No.
2.Yes, since pregnancy and birth, didn't before that.

4. Slightly, kept some weight with each baby.

1 do you eat meat? Yes

2, Do you eat breakfast? Sometimes

3, Do you have a fast or slow metabolism? Fast

?4, are you overweight? No

5, do you eat more or less than your rda? Depends

6, do you consider yourself spiritual? Yes

7, do you eat differently or similar to your parents/siblings? Differently

8, what would your usual dinner consist of? Pasta, bacon, fresh veg, cheese,

9 would you consider yourself, more left or right brained? This concept is a myth (self-fulfilling: the 'side' you use the most gets most exercise... it therefore isn't inherent and people who believe they are one sided often lack confidence in their abilities with the perfectly functional other side... creating a self-fulfilling cycle). I'm a former actor who now works with stats and child protection stuff: very happy with all the jobs I've had be they creative, empathetic or logical.

PS. My 'soapbox' bit is from professional expertise. It is rapidly falling out of favour with schools and child development organisations and rightly so.
