Calculate The Age Of Your Body.

male-agingEach of us has a chronological age that we count in days, weeks, months and birthdays. And then we have a biological age which is determined by the health of our bodies. This biological age is a better predictor of functional capacity at a later age than, for example, the number of times your body has circled the sun.

Researchers at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology have put together a very basic calculator to give some insight into each of our biological ages. It asks for your sex, exercise commitments, chronological age, waistline and resting heart rate. Then, you get your answer. According to the calculator, for example, my body is that of a teenager.

Of course, this calculator is just a very rough estimate. It doesn’t take other risk factors into account – like smoking, drug use, disease, etc. But it can still provide some good insight.

So go ahead! Calculate your biological age.

And then, in the comments below, share your chronological age and biological age. Were you surprised by the difference?
