上大学长胖,休假也长胖?

已经有很多人的经验证明,大一新生多数都会长胖。准备进入大学的同学们,提前做好迎接freshman 15的心理准备吧。

15 is said to be the number of pounds that many students gain in their first year of college; and freshman 15 is the often observed phenomenon of weight gain among first year college students.

据说,之所以会出现15这个数字是因为很多学生在大一这一年体重会增加15磅(约13斤);而freshman 15则指代学生上大一时体重增加这个现象。

除此之外,上班族在休假期间长胖的可能性也很高,大概是因为休假期间神经放松,出去玩的时候又经受不住美食的诱惑吧。

Holiday pounds refer to the extra little bit of weight you put on during a period of being on holiday or vacation.
Holiday pounds指休假或者节假日期间额外增长的那部分体重,我们可以戏称为“假期胖子”。

For example:

Man, when I get back to work I'll have to start going to the gym again- I've put on some serious holiday pounds.

唉,等我回去上班,我得开始去健身房了,休假长了不少肉。

所以呢,挺容易长胖的这一代人就有了个名字叫Genaration XL。XL什么意思?出去买衣服的时候就知道了!

Generation XL refers to children or young adults who are overweight, XL refers to the size extra large in clothing.

Generation XL指体重超重的儿童或年轻人,即“超大码一代”或“超重的一代”,XL代表衣服尺寸中的超大码。

Like college freshmen who get fat from too much dorm food and too little activity, many cubicle potatoes lead very unhealthy lives. They have erratic eating habits and indulge in too much late-afternoon or late-night high-fat snacking. They are only half joking when they say their only physical activity is surfing the Internet.

跟吃太多宿舍食品和运动太少而长胖的大学新生一样,很多整天待在格子间的员工都过着很不健康的生活。他们饮食不规律,经常在下午或者深夜吃很多高热量的零食。他们开玩笑说他们唯一的体育运动是网上冲浪,其实这玩笑有一半说的是事实。
