Section B Compound Dictation
The human body is a remarkable food processor. As an adult, you may consume over a
ton of food per year and still not gain or lose a pound of body weight. You are
constantly harnessing, and consuming energy through the intricate mechanism of your
body in order to remain in energy balance. To maintain a given body weight, your
energy input must balance your energy output. However, sometimes the overall energy
balance is upset, and your normal body weight will either fall or increase.
The term body image refers to the mental image we have of our own physical
appearance, and This can be influenced by a variety of factors，including how much
you weigh and how that weight is distributed. Research has revealed that about 40
percent of adult men and 55 percent of adult women are dissatisfied with their
current body weight. Similarly findings have also been reported at high school
level，mainly with female students. At the college level, a study found that 85
percent of both male and female first year students desired to change their body
weight. The primary cause of this concern is the value that American society is
in general a society to physical appearance. Thinness is currently an attribute
that females desire highly. Males generally desire muscularity. The vast majority
of individuals who want to change their body weight do it for the sake of
appearance: most want to lose excess body fat. while a smaller percentage of
individuals actually want to gain weight.
