How healthy is your relationship with food?

How do you really feel about food, and how much power do you allow it to have over you?  Unhealthy food-relationships are much more common than you might think and often pop up in the so-called 'healthy' folk among us.  How can you tell if you have a healthy relationship with that tasty, nourishing stuff?  Ask yourself a couple questions:
  •  Do you eat differently in front of people than you do alone?
  • Do you alter the amount or intensity of exercise based on what you eat?
  • How often do you eat in front of a tv or computer screen?
  • Do you rely on hunger and satiety to determine when and how much to eat?
  • Do you count calories?
  • Do you compare what you eat with what others are eating?
To find out how your relationship scores, try an online quiz.   Here are just a few sites that offer quick, free food-relationship quizzes:
