Look at the following text and put the phrases in colour into the correct list below:

My Mum’s in really good shape. She goes to the gym twice a week and plays tennis on Sunday. My Dad, on the other hand, is really unfit. He spends all day in front of the TV – he gets out of breath if he has to get up to answer the phone! My sister’s a swimming instructor. As you can imagine, she’s as fit as a fiddle, but my brother, who used to play rugby every weekend, has let himself get really out of condition – he must have put on twenty kilos in the last two years. Finally, there’s my grand-dad. He’s nearly eighty but he’s got loads of energy. He plays golf three times a week and jogs round the park on the other days!

Match these lifestyle problems with the pieces of advice below:

The problems:

1. My hair always feels lifeless and oily. If I wash it in the morning, I need to wash it again when I come home from work. And I can’t seem to get rid of the spots on my face.

2. If I buy a new pair of trousers, they don’t fit me after a couple of months. So now I buy all my trousers one size too big. That way they last twice as long.

3. I get really breathless if I have to go upstairs nowadays. I used to be able to run up stairs. Now I have to stop halfway up and have a rest.

4. When I come home from work, the first thing I do every evening is pour myself a large gin and tonic. It’s the only way I can relax.

The advice:

a. Look carefully at your diet. Are you eating too many oily foods, like chips or potato crisps?

b. You’d be far better playing squash or tennis after work. That would help you relax far better. You need less stress in your life.

c. You’re smoking too the moment you are breathless. What will you do when the doctor tells you it’s cancer?

d. You are simply eating too much. If you are putting weight on so quickly, you must simply eat less and eat more healthier. Try cutting out all sugar and butter immediately, then start cutting out other things, like cream. Change to semi-skimmed milk.

1. eat ………….. meals 5. get ………….. of spots
2. my waist …………… 6. look carefully at your ………
