Points scoring

0-8 Vain: Love yourself don’t you? Perhaps a little too darn cocky if you ask me, but just because you’re confident doesn’t mean you’re healthy. Remember to exercise and keep a balanced diet.

8-14 Balanced: You have a good body image and a good outlook. Carry on as you are, but do allow yourself a treat every now and again.

14-20 Need a boost: OK, you are generally happy, but occasionally get insecure, just like anyone does. Do something to boost your self-esteem and remember to eat a healthy and balanced diet.

20-26 Far too low: I don’t care if you really are Shrek’s twin, you have poor body image and self confidence and need to get more positive. Besides Shrek got the girl in the end, didn’t he. Eat healthily, get some exercise and go out and have some fun. Life’s too short to waste all that time thinking about the way you look.
