Take The Hauser Diet Quiz

Congratulations! You are taking the first step towards improving your health and making some changes that will help keep you active for life!

What will this quiz tell me? Please understand that this multiple choice Hauser Diet Quiz represents tendencies only. It is not an official Diet Type test, nor does it represent or override a recommendation made by the physicians or staff of Caring Medical.

However, this general quiz may help you better understand how certain foods make you feel, in order to get an idea of which diet plan may best suit your physiology. Our body’s response to food can really tell us a lot about ourselves. You may find, however, that you have never really thought about how food makes you feel. You may actually have to think about it and observe yourself for a few days before you can fully answer these questions.

So remember, when you are thinking about your answers to these questions, we want you to think about how these foods make you FEEL, not whether or not you like the food!

For example, many people like pasta, but they feel gassy and tired after their favorite Italian meal. Many people love steak, but they feel constipated and bloated after a big t-bone! So take some time to really think about how you feel – once you figure out what foods make you feel the best, you’re on the road to feeling great all the time! Eating great food makes you feel great!

Question 1 of 16:
Choose the answer that best describes your response. Take some time to think about it before you answer. Remember we are not asking you if you LIKE a certain food or weather, but how your body FEELS in that situation or with that food.
