Personally, I take issue with the blood type question. Numerous doctors and scientists disagree with the premise of this diet, and I'd say it's hardly considered to be a fact. This book asserts that based on your blood type, you should be eliminating entire food groups, and most doctors say that the best approach is a balanced diet, which the blood type diet....is not. It's a fad diet that causes weight loss by drastic calorie cutting through the elimination of entire food groups.

As a registered dietitian, I think this quiz is seriously misleading and based on one PhD's opinion... and I agree with the above comment that stress does not make you fat -- only eating more calories than you expend can do that. There is science to cortisol production, but it can be overridden with other forms of stress relief. Arrgh.

stress does not make you fat, is overeating what does it! I could be stressed but be able to control my carb cravings! Well, I guess it's easier said than done...

I didn't think stress actually made you fatter or thinner, it was the way you handled it. Oh well.

I think the "science" behind the claims in iVillage's article is actually that guy's opinion.
