BBC Learning English 6 Minute English Dieting 6 Minute English © bbclearningenglish.com 2008 Page 1 of 5 Doug: Hello, I’m Doug Campbell and this is 6 minute English. Today we’re talking about going on a diet . And I’m here with Jackie Dalton. Jackie: Hi Doug, have you ever gone on a diet to try to lose weight? Doug: No I haven’t Jackie, but I am sure if I did go on a diet, I wouldn’t be successful. It’s very, very difficult! To start the programme I have a question for you though, Jackie, about going on a diet. Well there are lots of different diets – loads of different diets, but I want to talk about one of them – the low-carb diet. Jackie: Yes, I’ve heard of that. Doug: Okay Jackie, if you were on a low-carb diet, you would eat… a) less pasta b) less fish c) less salad Jackie: Okay, yes, I think I do know this one because low-carb is short for low- carbohydrate which is a food group that releases lots of energy and I know that fish is protein, salad is roughage, which is leafy stuff, and pasta is a carbohydrate so if you are eating low-carb you would cut out or cut down on pasta. Doug: Okay, you are sure about that. Jackie: I’m sure about that. Today, we’re going to hear from two people who have gone a diet. Were they successful? Did they lose weight?
