There have always been a lot of commonly believed but false ideas about being fat and doing exercise. Some people believe that they can't help putting an weight as they get older, while others hold that if they stop exercising, their muscles will turn into fat. Here are some more myths:
I’ll never lose weight—I come from a fat family
Wrong! While we can't change the body type we are born with, we can't blame
our genes for making us fat. There's plenty of evidence that fatness runs in families, and the main reason is that they share the same habit of eating too much and exercising too little.
I am fat because I burn calories slowly
Wrong! Fatness is not caused by a slow metabolism(新陈代谢). In fact, although fat people consume more energy than slim people, they also fail to realize how much they eat! Keeping a diary can help you work out your daily food intake more accurately.
Exercise is boring
Wrong! Anything will become boring if you do it repetitively. The key is to develop a balanced and varied program that's fun as well as progressive. If you enjoy a Sunday walk, take a different route. If you do yoga, try a tai chi class. If you like swimming, set yourself a distance or time challenge.
No pain, no gain
Wrong! Exercise is not meant to hurt. Indeed, pain is you body telling you something's wrong, and continuing to exercise could lead to serious injury. You may experience mild discomfort as you begin to exercise regularly, but this is your body adapting to the positive changes in your lifestyle and the aches should disappear relatively quickly. If they don't, rest and seek medical advice.

Have you had this experience? You are watching a movie.A man is shooting on the screen.The picture is so real that you think he is shooting at you.Or a car is speeding on the screen and at one point you are afraid that it will hit you.
Three-dimensional(3D) movies use special technology to make pictures seem more real and exciting than two-dimensional ones.The popular movie Avatar uses 3D technology.
So far we can only see 3D movies in the cinema with a special screen and projector(放映机).But soon, we will be able to watch them in our living rooms.Last month, Woods Company told reporters that it plans to bring 3D televisions to homes in the near future.The company is also hoping to make other products with 3D, like laptops and PS3(索尼的家用游戏机).
“The 3D train is on the track, and we are ready to drive it home,”said the President.3D movies and TV programs are fun to watch, but do you know how they are made? It is much easier to understand if we do an experiment.
Hold one of your fingers up at arms length and close one eye.Then try closing
the other eye.As you switch between open eyes, you should see your finger “jumping”left and right against the background.
This happens because our two eyes are about 4cm away from each other.The separation causes each eye to see the world from a different angle.The brain puts these two views together.What you see becomes three-dimensional.
3D movies are made by using two video cameras at the same time, which creates two different images.When the movie plays in a cinema, two projectors put the two images on the screen.With a pair of 3D glasses, the two images are separated and each image only enters one eye.Your brain puts the two pictures back together, and the pictures on the screen become three-dimensional.
