The best diet for you is the one that you can follow for the rest of your life. Most diets can get you to your goal, if you do exactly what they say.
The first thing to do is to look at what you're doing now. If it's easier for you to see where you're going wrong by writing down what you eat for the next week，then do that.
When you become familiar with the foods you choose to eat every day，it's easy to start to get used to healthier alternatives and make better choices. Let's take a look at some common lifestyle choices that could help you lose weight easily.
Got a soda habit?
Drink a lot of soda or fruit juices? Substitute water and tea instead. Studies show that just this one substitution can help you drop 20 pounds in a year.
Spending a lot of time buying fast food?
Avoid anything that you can get through a window. Bring your lunch instead. Home cooking almost automatically guarantees a meal that's lower in fat and calories than anything you could get through a window.
Never finish a meal without grease(油脂) on your hands?
Deep－fried foods are loaded with calories and fat. Fry in a little olive oil，instead.
Always having a lot of sauces?
If you're ordering sandwiches with special sauce or mayo，then you're eating a lot more calories and fat grams than you think you are. Some sauces can add more than 20 grams of fat，and hundreds of calories to your lunch. Mustard (芥末) is a good alternative. It's flavorful, and has virtually no calories or fat.
Take a look at what you're doing，and make changes you can live with.

Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps admitted Sunday that he had engaged in“regrettable” behavior and “demonstrated bad judgment” after a photo was published that appeared to show him smoking cannabis(大麻)．
A British newspaper，the News of the World, published the photo showing Phelps, wearing a white T－shirt, holding the pipe—known as a bong — to his lips and apparently inhaling(吸烟)．
“I'm 23 years old，and despite the successes I have had in the pool, I acted in an inappropriate way，not in a manner that people have come to expect from me. For this, I am sorry. I promise my fans and the public — it will not happen again.”
The newspaper said the picture was taken on November 6, 2008，almost three months after Phelps won a historic eight gold medals at the Beijing Olympics，when he went to a party at the University of South Carolina.
The USA Swimming, the national governing body for the sport, said it was disappointed by Phelps' admission. “We are certainly disappointed in Michael's behavior. Our Olympic champions are role models who are looked up to by people of all ages, especially young athletes，” the USA Swimming said in a statement. “We hope that Michael can learn from this incident and move forward in a positive way.” The US Olympic Committee also expressed disappointment in the swimmer, who on January 22 was named the USOC's Sportsman of the Year for making Olympic history in Beijing by collecting the most golds won by any athlete at a single Games, giving him a career total of 14 golds. “We are disappointed in the behavior recently exhibited by Michael Phelps. Michael is a role model, and should set a positive example for others, particularly for young people. Regrettably, he failed to fulfill those responsibilities，” the USOC said.
24．How did Michael Phelps feel about his smoking behavior?
A．Very regrettable. B．Very unlucky.
25．It is inferred that the bong is used to ________.
A．drink the water B．excite an athlete
C．smoke cannabis D．clear the lips

24．解析：细节理解题。根据第一段第一句“...Michael Phelps admitted Sunday that he had engaged in‘regrettable’behavior ...”可知，他对自己的吸毒行为感到非常懊悔。
25．解析：推理判断题。根据第二段中“...holding the pipe—known as a bong—to his lips and apparently inhaling(吸烟)”可知，bong实际上就是前面提到的吸管，可以看出它主要是用来吸食大麻的。
27．解析：推理判断题。根据最后一段倒数第二句中“Michael is a role model, and should set a positive example for others ...”可知，人们期待菲尔普斯能成为一个供其他人学习的榜样。
A primary school teacher who left a class of 25 pupils in tears after she told them Santa Claus did not exist has been fired. When excited youngsters became rowdy as they talked about Santa，the supply teacher said out suddenly，“It's your parents who leave out presents on Christmas Day.”
The class of sevenyearolds at Blackshaw Lane Primary School，Royton，Greater Manchester burst into tears and told their parents when they arrived home. Mothers and fathers then complained about the incident and were sent a letter by the school saying the teacher，who only worked at the school for one day last week，has been disciplined.
The school has now said it will not hire her again.
One father said，“My son came home and said that his teacher had told the class that Santa doesn't exist and it's their mum and dad that put out presents for them. Obviously，they were all talking about Christmas and being a bit rowdy. She just came straight out with it.”
“My son was in tears and so was everyone else in the class—especially as it was so close to Christmas .I thought it was wrong. He was crazy about it. He's only seven years old and it's part of the magic of Christmas to him.”
“We told him that she did not believe in Father Christmas because of her religion and he's fine now.”
“The father described the incident as ‘shocking’ and believed it was done with malicious intent(恶意地). A lot of parents were angry and complained to the school. The teacher，who was supplied by Rochdale and Oldham Supply Agency，is still listed and will work with other schools，”the agency said.

If you bought some candy months ago but never ate it, how can you tell whether it is still safe to eat? The easiest way is to check the “use－by date” printed on the wrapper. If that date has already passed, you're likely to throw the candy away. But is that really necessary?
According to a new report from the US Natural Resources Defense Council(NRDC), tons of food is wasted each year, largely because people don't fully understand what expiration dates, or “use－by dates”， actually mean.
Food dating was introduced in the 1970s because consumers wanted more information about the things that they were eating. When they first showed up, use－by dates were only supposed to indicate freshness because producers wanted their products to be tasted in their best conditions.
But the truth is that these dates aren't related to the risk of food poisoning or food－born illness, according to Time News. However, most customers misinterpreted use－by dates and related them to the safety of the food, and they still largely do now.
Eggs, for example, can still be eaten three to five weeks after purchase even though the use－by date is much earlier. When their use－by dates pass, strawberry－flavored drinks may lose their red color and biscuits may lose their crunch (嘎吱嘎吱的声音), but they are not harmful.
“It's a confusing subject, the difference between food quality and food safety，” said Jena Roberts, vice president of National Food Lab，a US food testing company. “Even in the food industry I have colleagues who get confused.”
This is why scientists are calling for a standard explanation to be printed following the use－by dates. “We want this to be clearly communicated so consumers are not misunderstanding the date and contributing to a lot of waste，” said Dana Ganders, a staff scientist with the NRDC.
But this won't be a mistake that is easy to correct since people have believed it for so long. Another problem is that the quality levels of different foods change differently—some are still safe to eat long after their use－by date while others are not.
As a result, food industry officials are now thinking of changing the use－by date to a date indicating when food is most likely to go bad.
32．The use－by date was first intended to ________.
A．tell the freshness of food
B．show the safety of food
C．give a warning of food poisoning
D．indicate the relation between food and illness
33．The underlined word “misinterpreted” in Paragraph 4 probably means“________”．
A．made guesses about
B．formed a wrong idea about
C．made wrong use of
D．took no notice of
34．Which of the following is TRUE?
A．Most customers understand what use－by dates mean.
B．“Use－by dates” have existed for more than 50 years.
C．Biscuits can't be eaten when not as crunchy as they were bought.
D．Even after their use－by dates pass, some foods are still safe to eat.
35．Scientists are calling for a standard explanation to be printed together with the use－by dates because ________.
A．use－by dates are not helpful or reliable
B．more consumers get worried about food safety
C．most consumers often misunderstand use－by dates
D．the quality level of different foods changes differently
32．解析：细节理解题。根据第三段第二句中的“When they first showed up，use－by dates were only supposed to indicate freshness”可知，应选A项。
Although many Chinese students say that their knowledge of English grammar is good, most would admit that their spoken English is poor. Whenever I speak to a Chinese student，they always say，“My spoken English is poor.” __36__ I would like to suggest that there may be some reasons for their problems with spoken English.
First，they fail to find suitable words to express themselves due to a limited vocabulary. __37__ However, you can speak with a limited vocabulary，if you choose a positive attitude. Others will follow you as long as you use the words that you know.
__38__ Sometimes they make mistakes when they are speaking because they are shy and nervous. Yet students should remember that their goal should be FLUENCY NOT ACCURACY. Your aim in writing is to be accurate following the rules for grammar and using the right words and spelling them correctly. However，in speaking your aim is fluency. You want to get your message across，to talk to someone in English, as quickly and as well as you can, even though sometimes you may use a wrong word or tense, but it doesn't matter. __39__
The third reason is that not enough attention is paid to listening. You have one mouth but two ears! All that hearing is necessary for you to start speaking.
Fourth, most Chinese students are reactive rather than proactive language learners. Instead of actively seeking out opportunities to improve their spoken English they passively wait for speaking opportunities to come to them and wonder why their English always remains poor. __40__
A．The person you are speaking to will understand you and make allowances for any mistakes he hears.
B．They may try to avoid making similar mistakes next time.
C．Obviously the better answer is to expand their vocabulary.
D．If you have this proactive outlook，then you will see English opportunities wherever you go.
E．However, their spoken English does not have to remain“poor”！
F．Second，they are afraid of making mistakes.
G．The second reason lies in the reluctance of using what has just been learned.
As the pace of life continues to increase, we are fast losing the art of relaxation. __41__ you are in the habit of rushing through life, being on the go from morning till night, it is hard to __42__ down. But relaxation is __43__ for a healthy mind and body. Stress is a __44__ part of everyday life and there is no way to __45__ it. In fact, it is not the bad thing that it is often supposed to be. A __46__ amount of stress is important to provide motivation and give __47__ to life. It is only when the stress gets out of control __48__ it can lead to poor performance and __49__ health.
The amount of stress a person can bear __50__ very much on the individual. Some people are not afraid of stress. And such __51__ are obviously chief material for managerial responsibilities. Others lose heart at first __52__ of unusual difficulties. When exposed to stress, in __53__ form, we react both chemically and physically. In fact we make a choice between __54__ and fight. And in more ancient days the choices made the __55__ between life and death. The crisis(危机)we meet today are __56__ to be so extreme, but however little the stress, it requires the same response. It is when such a reaction __57__ long, through continued exposure to stress, that health becomes __58__. Such serious conditions as high blood pressure and heart diseases have __59__ links with stress. __60__ we cannot remove stress from our lives we need to find ways to deal with it. It would be unwise to do so even if we could.
