Check Your Fat Age


Some of us eat too much fat and this can affect our health. Eating too much fat can contribute to weight gain and can lead to other problems such as heart disease.

This Fat Age Calculator is designed to give you a very rough indication of whether or not you are eating too much fat and saturated fat.

Fill out the questionnaire, enter your age and the calculator will tell you how many years worth of your lifetime allowances of fat and saturated fat you have already consumed!

"Fat Age" is not a clinically recognised term. This calculator is simply designed to give you a rough idea of whether you are eating too much fat or saturated fat. The calculator assumes that what you tell us about your dietary intake has changed little during your adult years since you turned 18.

Saturated fat is a type of fat, found mainly in animal foods, that can tend to increase cholesterol levels if eaten in excess.
