2020考研英语时事阅读:“荷尔蒙餐”,增肥还是减肥?

As a registered dietitian, I have found that my clients are increasingly asking about books and programs that claim you can adjust your hormones with diet to lose weight quickly and easily. Search for "hormone diet" and there are more than 30 recent diet books on the topic. The authors allege that the reason people over 35 struggle to lose weight doesn't have to do with eating too much or not exercising enough. They say it's your hormones working against you.

According to these books, you can "trick your metabolism" and "feed your thyroid." They claim that all you need to do is eat the right foods and take the right supplements, and you'll unlock the secret to lasting weight loss.

This program claims to promote rapid weight loss — 20 pounds in 30 days — by affecting seven different hormones that make it "impossible for you to lose weight," such as: insulin, which moves sugar from your blood into your cells; cortisol, the "stress hormone"; sex hormones such as testosterone and estrogen; and thyroid hormones.

作为一名注册营养师,我发现我的顾客越来越多问我关于一些他们读过的书或者见到过的项目中提到的:您可以通过你的饮食来调节体重,从而更快、更容易减肥。搜一搜 “荷尔蒙餐”,你会发现,近期就有30多本相关话题的书籍。作者宣传,超过35岁之后,人们很难减肥的原因不是因为吃太多或者运动太少。他们说:是因为你的荷尔蒙在兴妖作怪。

根据这些书的理论,你可以“骗你的新陈代谢”,也可以喂养你的甲状腺。他们声称你需要做的就是正确进食,摄入正确的补剂,然后你就可以解锁永久减肥的秘密。

这个项目声称通过影响七种不同的激素(这些让你“不可能减肥”的激素)来促进体重迅速减轻,可以在30天内减掉20磅。影响的激素有:胰岛素——将血液中的糖转移到你的细胞中;皮质醇,“压力荷尔蒙”;性激素如睾固酮,和雌激素;还有甲状腺激素。
