Reference: Online Tutor For English
Mike: What'd you want to order?
Megg: I want a double cheese burger, well done with extra french fries, and diet coke. Mike: You can't eat a double burger as well as extra french fries at once. You'll get sick. Megg: I know but I like it. What're you gonna eat?
Mike: I'll eat a chicken salad and fruit salad.
Megg: Yucky! I can't stand veggies. You always eat lots of vegetables. How do you like it? Mike: I like it. But, mostly I got used to eating healthy.
Megg: I wish I could do it, too. I do it, but then again cheat. I had lots of ice cream last night after a healthy salad lunch. Mike: It's okay if you eat ice-cream. But eat it in moderation and low-fat. Megg: I can't do it. I've tried several times but failed.
Mike: Megg, you must never give up. If you fail once, then try again and again. If you try all the time, your body will learn to adjust. Megg: What'd you mean by my body will learn to adjust?
Mike: Your brain will learn not to crave for sugar.
Megg: Well, my body doesn't learn things quickly. I'm always hungry. Mike: Once you cut down sugar, you will never want to eat all the time. You will eat less carbohydrates. Megg: What if I don't eat lots of carbohydrates?
Mike: I mean bad carbohydrates like cake, crackers, pretzels, white bread and processed food. Megg: Okay, I'm listening.
Mike: I'll continue later. Let's order our lunch now. Do me a favor, Megg: Order only one burger and small french fries. Megg: Alright. I'll give it a try.
