I took this thinking it might help me figure out why I'm always hungry. It didn't help

If your score fell in this range, you're doing well, with regards to fruits, vegetables, whole grains and the like. You've still got some room for improvement!

This test confused me, so I just picked randomly, but tried to sender as best I could.
