发表时间:2017-10-08内容来源:VOA英语学习网

Todd: OK, Devon, I've been putting on a few pounds and you're quite a lean fit guy.

好的,戴文。我最近长了几斤,而你看上去苗条又健康。

Devon: Well, thank you.

谢谢。

Todd: What do you recommend? What can I do to lose weight?

你的建议是什么?我怎样才能减肥呢?

Devon: Well, I exercise a lot. I go running at least three times a week. But more than that I enjoy playing sports and so different sports use different muscles and all of it helps to lose that weight that you might have gained.

我经常运动。我一周至少跑步三次。除了这点我还喜欢其他运动,不同的运动会锻炼不同的肌肉,这些运动都会帮助你减掉多余的重量。

Todd: Yeah, well, actually, one of the problems is that I actually exercise a lot.

好的,问题是,实际上我经常运动。

Devon: Do ya?

真的吗?

Todd: Yeah, so maybe it's my diet.

是的,也许是我的食谱有问题。

Devon: It could be and so in that case you might want to eat something perhaps more nutritious or maybe even less of what you do eat. Maybe, I eat three meals a day and I try not to snack in between. No potato chips. No popcorn. No candy bars.

有可能,如果是这样,你应该吃些高蛋白的食物,并减少食物摄取的总量。我每天吃三顿饭,并且努力在餐食间拒绝零食。不吃薯条,爆米花,也不吃糖果。

Todd: That's pretty tough!

这很难做到!

Devon: It is tough but......Well, I must admit that I cheat every once in awhile but...

确实很难,但我必须承认我也许骗得了一时,但……

Todd: Ok, I'll give it a try....but actually, you see my problem is that I like junk food. So I have to choose: either I eat less or I eat a better diet. What do you think is more important?

好的,我会努力尝试的……但实际上,我的问题是我喜欢垃圾食品。所以我必须选择:是吃少点儿,还是吃得更好点儿。你认为哪条更重要?

Devon: I think that if you are exercizing then you should just eat what you want and eat less.

我认为如果你最近在运动,那么最好吃想吃的食物,但是要减少量。

Todd: Eat less. OK. This is going to be tough!

少吃点儿。好的,这会很有难度!

Devon: Well, I have no doubt that you will do the best that you can.

我毫不怀疑你会做到最好。

Todd: Alright! Thanks a lot Devon.

好的,谢谢你,戴文。
