    FITNESS FLOP

    You scored out of 520 on Predator Nutrition’s fitness scale.
    That makes you the average Brit.

    The first thing to look at is your diet and daily activity levels. Try not to focus on weight at this stage. Set yourself one goal per week as a starting point and make them as small as possible. This could be eating one piece of fruit a day or incorporating one exercise a week, such as walking to work. Small changes help you stay motivated, and eventually become habits.
