    'Middle age health crisis' warning - BBC News

    Eight in every 10 people aged 40 to 60 in England are overweight, drink too much or get too little exercise, the government body warns.

    The news is bad enough to make me want to sit down, gourge and drink.

    The slave masters like workers chained to their desks, grazing on junk and lunching Al Desco.

    Low carb is the way to eat healthy and lose weight;

    If they are going to afford their rent, they have to work all hours.

    'The PHE website and app has a quiz that gives users a health score based on their lifestyle habits by asking questions such as, "Which snacks do you eat in a normal day?" and "How much exercise do you get every day?".'

    Tried it and it's on the verge of being overloaded, loading slowly and throwing the occasional 500 server error.

    But I persisted until I came to a question about which kind of cheese I'd choose out of four types. As I don't eat any kind of cheese under any circumstances, and it wouldn't let me continue without picking one, I had to abandon it

    I did another one of their stupid quizzes and like you I couldn't choose a none of the them option for 3 of the questions so I choose some random answer. I then gave them feedback telling them that there are many people for various reasons who can't or don't eat those foods. Actually the thing I should have used is religion and race as that would have gotten them worried.

    Was the least useful quiz I've done. It advised me to do the 'couch to 5K' - on Christmas day I did my 200th 5K parkrun.

    I was told to stop drinking at the end as no alcohol is any good.

    Then one of the pages during the quiz where they were clearly wanted to tell me off was blank.
