Inglês Favorito Podcast #5: FITNESS/DIET VOCABULARY (part 1)

There are many reasons for someone to want to start attending a gym. You may want to get in shape, improve your physical fitness, feel better about your appearance, or simply lose weight. If you don't understand what I just said, I'll break it down for you. When you get in shape you become healthy, strong and fit. You can achieve that by exercising frequently. Physical fitness is your ability to carry out tasks without undue fatigue. Sometimes in order to make your physical fitness better, you need to lose weight. Weight is your body's mass, which can be measured by pounds, kilos, etc. So, if you lose weight, you become thinner or skinnier, but if you put on weight, you gain weight and get fat.

If getting fatter isn't in your New year's resolutions for 2017, you need to watch your figure and cut down on chocolate and fat. Ok, now we have two new expressions here. When you watch your figure, you try to lose weight, keep fit, be careful about your diet, or, as I said before, cut down on junk food like chocolate, hamburgers, soda, etc. And when you cut down on food or some bad habit, you reduce the amount of it, you use, eat or buy less of it. So that will probably lead you to go on a diet, which means to lose weight by eating less food or specific foods. If you're really determined to be in good shape, you will want to associate a good diet to a good workout, which is what you basically do at the gym. Working out consists of a session of vigorous physical exercise or training. So, you can use it as a phrasal verb, as in: Yesterday I worked out with my friends at the gym. And you can also use it as a noun, as in: I had an excellent workout with the help of my trainer. That's all for today, guys. I'll talk to you next time!
