This ESL podcast is a comedy style talk show done by two Canadian brothers living in Shanghai, China. Fun to listen to and a great way to improve English.

This ESL podcast is another podcast about losing weight.  Here we discuss which kinds of foods to avoid and how to lose weight in a healthy way.


There are several different strategies and methods to lose weight, but here are some of the most common ideas.  It’s important to control your total caloric intake.  Calories are the energy found in food and this energy will be stored as fat if the body doesn’t use them up.  You should try to keep the amount of saturated fats to a minimum and also not eat so many simple carbohydrates.  You should exercise regularly and do both strength training exercises as well as cardio-vascular exercise.  A Big Mac at Macdonald’s has 492 calories and would take you almost an hour of moderate bike riding to burn that.  If you have a daily caloric deficit of 500 calories, it would take you about 13 days to lose a kilogram of body fat.
