Kitchen makeover assessment scores and what they mean
32 to 63 total points:
You've scored high on the kitchen overhaul questionnaire. But this score means that you're not doing so well in the kitchen department. In fact, if your kitchen stays in this condition you'll have better luck winning the lottery than getting great body composition, health and performance results. Since you're in need of an Extreme Makeover--The Kitchen Edition, here's what to do:
Step 1: Go grab an extra-large shopping bag.
Step 2: Without thinking about it, open the bag and with your forearm, sweep every offensive food item from your fridge, freezer and cupboards right in. These include all items from questions 4 and 5.
Step 3: Wave goodbye as this food rolls away on the back of a garbage truck.
Step 4: Go to the grocery store immediately and pick up the foods listed in questions 2 and 3.

Your kitchen's not the worst I've seen, but you could certainly use some improvement here and there. Take a look at the inventory listed in questions 1 through 3 and get more of these items and less of the items listed in questions 4 and 5. Begin shopping more frequently, eating fresher items, and being more aware of the foods that you're eating and when. Only then will you be better equipped for success.

Don't let the negative scores fool you! Negative scores on the kitchen overhaul questionnaire mean that you don't need much of a makeover. And that's great! Congratulations on your kitchen set-up. With your kitchen full of these good foods (like those listed in questions 2 and 3) and the right appliances, you'll be the envy of all your fitness- and nutrition-conscious friends.
