超模

(chāomó)

A: Every time I can't control my cravings and want to eat snacks, I search for some videos of supermodels walking the catwalk. Looking at their figures helps me solidify my determination to diet.

每次管不住嘴想吃零食时, 我就会去搜一些超模走秀的视频, 看看她们的身材, 就坚定了减肥的决心。

(měicì ɡuǎnbùzhù zuǐ xiǎnɡchī línɡshí shí, wǒ jiùhuì qù sōu yīxiē chāomó zǒuxiù de shìpín, kànkàn tāmen de shēncái, jiù jiāndìnɡ le jiǎnféi de juéxīn.)

B: Supermodels have it pretty tough. In order to maintain their small tummies and slender legs, some of them don't even eat a staple food for years, instead just taking in some vitamins and vegetables.  

超模很辛苦的。为了保持平坦的小腹和苗条的双腿, 她们有的几年都不吃主食, 只摄入一些营养素和蔬菜。

(chāomó hěn xīnkǔ de. wèile bǎochí pínɡtǎn de xiǎofù hé miáotiáo de shuānɡtuǐ, tāmen yǒude jǐnián dōu bùchī zhǔshí, zhǐ shèrù yīxiē yínɡyǎnɡsù hé shūcài.)

A: That's really scary. When it comes to a regular person like myself, I'll put my health first.   

这也太可怕了。作为普通人的我, 还是把身体健康放在第一位吧。

(zhè yě tài kěpà le. zuòwéi pǔtōnɡrén de wǒ, háishì bǎ shēntǐ jiànkānɡ fànɡzài dìyīwèi ba.)
