# 4 - PERSONALIZING "SCD" > QUESTIONNAIRE (Analyze your nutritional status)

Answering our short questionnaire will help analyze your nutritional status and provide you with information regarding the nutrients which may be found deficient in your diet as well as recommendations for which foods and recipes will help fulfill your nutritional needs. The results are as accurate as your responses to the questions. Be sure to fill out the questionnaire as accurately as possible and avoid underestimating your food intake.

We've created a questionnaire that is different from what you might expect. Many of the foods that you might currently be eating - especially processed foods, fast foods, desserts, treats, and snacks - are not even included in the questionnaire. The only foods we've listed are what we call the World's Healthiest Foods. These foods are unusually rich in nutrients. Part of the reason we call them the World's Healthiest Foods is that you don't have to eat large amounts of them to obtain a significant amount and variety of nutrients.

Our belief at the World's Healthiest Foods is that the more you can rely on the foods we list to provide your nourishment, the healthier you will become. Our Food Advisor will go on to suggest which nutrients are most likely to be deficient in your current meals, and to provide recommendations for obtaining these nutrients from foods and recipes. When the Food Advisor provides these recommendations, it is able to take into account your gender, age, and ethnicity if you have provided this information. In this way, the Food Advisor can give you a personalized set of food recommendations from a short questionnaire and move you along your way to a healthier meal plan!
