Character

Wendy:今天我们来聊一聊健身减肥的话题。最近Rachel在健身对吧?


Rachel:对,没错!


Wendy:你每周健身几次呢?


Rachel:现在我每周去健身房三次。但是呢,我总觉得自己没有瘦下来。


Wendy:其实啊,你也不是那么胖啦。


Rachel:自从我当了妈妈以后,就觉得我的新陈代谢变慢了很多,好像怎么瘦都瘦不下来。


Wendy:新陈代谢是指我们吃的食物,通过我们的身体转化成能量的过程。随着我们的年龄的增长,我们的新陈代谢也会变慢,因此就会有一部分脂肪囤积在我们的身体里。不过我也发现,东西方对于身材的审美还是很不同呢。


Rachel:审美的意思是,每个人对美的看法,也就是你觉得什么是美的。


Wendy:对,比如说,西方人会觉得丰盈和有曲线才是最美的。


Rachel:丰盈的意思是:有一点儿微胖,但是又不太胖的身材。而曲线的表示弯曲的线条,也就是像S形一样。


Wendy:但是东方人则认为瘦一点更美,因此他们有更苛刻的要求。


Rachel:苛刻的意思是,非常严格,多一点,少一点都不行哦。


Wendy:对,但是不管怎么说,我觉得健康的身体才是最重要的。

English

Wendy:Today we're gonna talk about the topic of fitness and weight loss. Recently, is Rachel working out?


Rachel:Yes, that's right!


Wendy:How many times do you work out every week?


Rachel:Now I go to the gym three times a week. However, I always feel that I have not lost my weight.


Wendy:Actually, you are not so fat.


Rachel: Since I became a mother, I felt that my metabolism slowed down so much that I didn’t lose weight.


Wendy:Metabolism refers to the process of eating food that is converted into energy through our body.

Along with our age increases, our metabolism will also slow down, so some fat is hoarding in our bodies. However, I also found that the aesthetics of the body in the East and the West are still very different.


Rachel:The meaning of aesthetics is that everyone’s perception of beauty, which is what you think is beautiful.


Wendy:Yes, for example, Westerners think harvest and curves is the most beautiful.


Rachel:The meaning of harvest is: slightly fat, but not too fat body.The curves represents a curved line, which is like an S-shape.


Wendy:But Asians indicate contrast that thinness is more beautiful, so they have more rigor requirements.


Rachel:The rigor means that it is very strict- a little more, and less will not work.


Wendy:Yes, but anyway, I think a healthy body is the most important thing.
