阿诺德·斯蒂芬·雅各布(A. J. Jacobs)名言

I pledged to become the world's greatest expert in a field I knew nothing about.

我发誓要成为一个我一无所知的领域里世界上最伟大的专家。

The key to making healthy decisions is to respect your future self. Honor him or her. Treat him or her like you would treat a friend or a loved one. A Stanford study showed that those who saw a photo of their future self made smarter financial decisions.

做出健康决定的关键是尊重未来的自己。尊重他或她。像对待朋友或爱人一样对待他或她。斯坦福大学的一项研究表明,那些看到自己未来照片的人会做出更明智的财务决策。

The best we can do, to paraphrase Pollan, is to eat whole foods, mostly plants, and not too much.

套用波伦的话来说,我们能做的最好的事情就是吃全食,主要是植物,不要吃太多。

It's sort of my job to feel good.

感觉良好是我的工作。

I tried the paleo diet, which is the caveman diet - lots of meat. And I tried the calorie restriction diet: The idea is that if you eat very, very little - if you're on the verge of starvation, you will live a very long time, whether or not you want to, of course.

我试过古人类的饮食,也就是穴居人的饮食-大量的肉。我尝试了卡路里限制饮食法:这个想法是,如果你吃得非常,非常少——如果你处于饥饿的边缘,你会活很长时间,当然,不管你是否愿意。

There's a very passionate pro-chewing movement on the Internet called Chewdiasm. They say that we should be chewing 50 to 100 times per mouthful, which is insane. I tried that. It takes like a day and a half to eat a sandwich. But their basic idea is right. If you chew, you'll eat slower and you will get more nutrients.

在互联网上有一个非常热情的支持咀嚼的运动叫做咀嚼运动。他们说我们每口应该咀嚼50到100次,这太疯狂了。我试过了。吃一个三明治需要一天半的时间。但他们的基本想法是对的。如果你咀嚼,你会吃得慢一些,你会得到更多的营养。

I was very good at sitting. But I just read so much research about how horrible sitting is for you. It's like, it's really bad. It's like Paula-Deen-glazed-bacon-doughnut bad. So I now move around as much as possible.

我很擅长坐着。但我刚刚读了很多关于坐着对你有多可怕的研究。就像,真的很糟糕。就像保拉·迪恩上釉培根甜甜圈坏了。所以我现在尽量四处走动。

My goal? To test out every diet and exercise regimen on planet earth and figure out which work best. I sweated, I cooked, I learned to pole dance. In the end, I lost weight, lowered my cholesterol and doubled my energy level. I feel better than I ever have.

我的目标?测试地球上的每一种饮食和锻炼方案,找出哪种效果最好。我出汗,做饭,学钢管舞。最后,我减轻了体重,降低了胆固醇,使我的精力加倍。我感觉比以前好多了。
