文:曾沛瑜<p>為了讓心儀的對象注意到自己,170公分、100多公斤的小捷每天騎腳踏車來回北投、信義區上下班,但一個月後體重竟然不減反增,令他沮喪不已......<p>這個令人驚訝的故事並非虛構,而是資深營養師林若君臨床上碰到的個案。她提醒,想減重,光運動並不足夠,運動前、中、後更要吃對東西。許多人以為運動後熱量吸收得特別快,太快吃會容易發胖,但這樣的觀念是錯誤的。其實運動後,反而是減重的黃金時間,能使減重事半功倍。<p>林若君解釋,由於運動會大量消耗肌肉中的肝醣,因此運動後的1~3小時內,肌肉吸收儲存能源的機制會大量提高,反而合成脂肪的酵素活性會明顯下降。所以許多人擔心「運動後吸收太好」,其實對肌肉是真的,但 …

文:蘇芩<p>永遠不要貶低女人的服飾<p>記牢這句話:永遠不要貶低女人的服飾,就如同永遠不要對相貌平平的女人說出「醜」字。<p>很多人會發現這樣一個有趣的現象:與一位陌生女性初次見面,如果誇讚她身上的服裝飾物,那她會迅速對你卸下防衛,展露出真誠、親切的笑容,接下來的談話也會融洽很多。<p>是啊,在社交場合,但凡女人願意穿戴出來的衣服飾品,無不是她精挑細選過的。<p>貶低一個女人的衣服、鞋帽等整套行頭,無疑是全盤否定了她之前所有的工作。誰都不喜歡被否定,尤其是女人。如果你不能肯定她,至少不要否定她。一旦你否定她,在女人的心裡,你便永遠是不受歡迎的來客。<p>於是可以明白了:讓一個女人的心迅速軟化的最佳藥劑是什麼?<p>答案是:讚美,尤其 …
