前言

“悦读英语看世界”这套丛书共有三册,分别为:


《悦读英语看世界——时尚潮流篇》


《悦读英语看世界——社会文化篇》


《悦读英语看世界——科技趣闻篇》


本册为《悦读英语看世界——时尚潮流篇》。时尚,顾名思义就是“时代”与“崇尚”的组合,即短时间或现阶段里为一些人所崇尚的生活。如今,追求时尚似已蔚然成风。


该书具有如下几大特色:


一是题材丰富。包含了与时尚生活息息相关的诸多内容,如衣着打扮、饮食、行为、居住,甚至情感表达与思考方式等。这样既可以拓宽读者的阅读视野,又能引起读者对学习英语的兴趣,继而熟悉并且掌握与时尚生活相关的英语表达。


二是语言鲜活。该书的材料精选于最新的英文报刊书籍或网页,语言地道鲜活,可模仿性强。


三是可读性强。所选99篇文章篇幅短小,不乏妙趣,细细品味,蕴含于字里行间的精言妙义不禁令人释然。


四是辅助力强。除选文外,本书还有“咬词嚼句”、“小品隽永”和“译文show”三个板块,尤其是“小品隽永”,其短小精悍的点评与赏析不仅有助于对文章的理解,更有助于对“美”的欣赏。这是本套丛书区别于其他所有同类图书的亮点。因此,本丛书是大学生迅速提高英语水平、欣赏英美文章、提升自我修养的极好的辅助材料,是英语自学者的良师益友,也是英语研究工作者的良好指南。


由于原文作者无法一一联络,谨在此向所有作者表示衷心感谢,感谢他们优美的文字和真诚的奉献。


由于时间仓促及编者水平所限,书中不足之处在所难免,敬请广大读者及同行指正。


编者

1 Let’s Skip Lunch

Alice keeps a food diary detailing every morsel that passes her lips. She is not on a diet,she says,but is “cutting down” on food because she wants to lose some weight from her stomach and thighs. She rarely has more than an apple for breakfast and for months her lunch has consisted of a diet Cola drink and a Kit Kat.


“Until last year I’d never thought that I might get fat but I noticed that my tummy was getting flabby,so I stopped eating as much,” she says. “I worry that I already have chunky legs and I don’t want to end up putting on weight like my sister. I write down my calories and if I get hungry I nibble on things like grapes at home.”


“I am starving by the time we have our evening meal and I usually eat it all—but I’m not going to pig out all day. I would just hate to be fat.”


Alice is 13,and she is far from alone in her attitude to eating. Her food avoidance tactics and body-consciousness are quite normal among children of her age—a generation who are growing up accustomed to feeling hungry.


Teenage body issues are nothing new,of course. Girls,especially,have always aspired to slimness and gone to various lengths to achieve it. What has changed is the increased extent to which young people think and worry about diet and weight. Andrew Hill,professor of medical psychology at the University of Leeds and an expert in adolescent dieting and body image,says it is inevitable that teenagers today have a more acute sense of weight and body shape than their older female relatives had at the same age. Their mothers are likely to have grown up in the 1980s,the decade in which diet books mushroomed and the concept of gyms and fitness emporia promising to sculpt their patrons’ bodies into perfect shape became part of the public consciousness,which had a deep influence on today’s young girls.

小品隽永


处于青春期的女孩子们大多为“瘦”欢喜为“胖”忧,一个个嚷着要节食要减肥。小文中的女主人公爱丽丝也不例外,虽然嘴上不承认是在节食,但是每天早餐一个苹果,午餐一罐健怡可乐外加几根巧克力棒,足见其瘦身的决心之坚定。


瘦身减肥并不是新世纪的新现象。爱美之心,人皆有之,何况又是处于青春期的少女。从来都是女孩子爱美甚于男孩子。


女孩子爱美,想要保持一个苗条身材的心态,其实受长辈的影响很大,尤其是母亲。


译文Show


和午餐说“拜拜”


爱丽丝记着一本十分详细的饮食日志。她说,她并没有节食,而是通过适当地控制饮食,把小腹和大腿上多余的肉肉给“甩”掉。为此她早餐只吃一个苹果,几个月来,每日的午餐也仅仅是一罐健怡可乐和一袋雀巢奇巧巧克力棒。


“从去年开始我意识到自己小肚子上长肉了,所以我不像以前那样乱吃东西了。”爱丽丝说道,“感觉自己好像开始有点大象腿的趋势了,我可不希望像我姐一样变得那么胖呢。所以我每天都很注意饮食热量。如果我饿了,我就在家里啃点葡萄之类的。”


“我一直会饿到晚餐时间,然后就好好吃顿晚餐,当然我并不会暴饮暴食,因为我讨厌变胖。”


爱丽丝今年13岁,在她的同龄人中,这种现象并不少见,很多女孩子都有类似的饮食习惯。她们似乎已经习惯了为保持身材宁愿挨饿的生活。


当然,青少年对自己身体的关注并不是新鲜事,特别是女孩子,可以为了“苗条”的身材,作一切的努力。与以往不同的是,如今的女孩子对饮食和体重的重视程度可以说是前所未有。安德鲁•希尔是英国利兹大学医学心理学的教授,专门从事青少年饮食和身体形象的研究。他说,现在的孩子难免比她们的长辈更加在乎体重和体型。她们的妈妈们生活在20世纪80年代,那时饮食类的书籍和健身中心刚刚兴起,很多人都希望能为自己塑造一个完美的体型,这种心态对她们的下一代影响很大。
