On Losing Weight谈论减肥
Henry: Do you have any good suggestions on howto keep fit? I feel like I've been putting on weightthese days.
Mary: How much do you weigh now?
Henry: About 150 pounds. Can you believe it?
Mary: But that weight looks good on you. I certainly don't think you need to go on a diet.
Henry: I'm starting to develop a thick waist. Can you see it? I want
to fix it quick.
Mary: Maybe jogging can keep your weight down.
Henry: Yeah, but it takes time o Aren't there any shortcuts?
Mary: You could try diet pills. They'll help take off the weight, but they have a few side effectsand can do more harm than good.
Henry: Anything else l could try?
Mary: The best thing is to control your diet and start to exercise.
Henry: I know, but I'd like to find a quick fix to this problem, and those things take time.
Mary: I hear you, but you have to choose.
