This is a question I answered at Yahoo Knowledge, but since the subject line is vague, I knew that someone would report it to be removed. Just to make sure that others can still benefit from the quality answer I provided, I decided to post it here.
This is it.
(1) A person wanting to lose weight should not consume more than 25% of their calories intake from non – saturated fat.
一個人想要減肥, 從非飽和脂肪中攝取的熱量, 應減少到總(熱量)攝取量的25%以下.
(2a) One should lose half an ounce of water for every pound of the body weight daily.
=> This is a very odd statement.
It implies that if you weigh 50 pounds, you should reduce your water consumption by 25 ounces per day. So if you drink 30 ounces of water a day, you should drink 5 ounces per day now.
(2b) One should drink a half ounce of water for every pound of body weight daily.
=> This states that if you weigh 50 pounds, you should drink 25 ounces of water per day (to reduce weight). This sounds more logical to me. I thought that 多喝一些水是減肥的關鍵.
