麻煩各位英文高手幫忙翻譯一下

The frequency of eating away from home has increased by more than

two thirds over the past two decades, with a large increase in the

consumption of fast food (3,4). Americans consume one billion

commercially prepared meals each weck (5). We now spend nearly half

of our food dollare on meals away from home, and not just at

restaurants and fast-food outlets. Food is sold almost everywhere; we are

surrounded with food-buying and food-eating opportunities at the mall,

sporting events, movie theaters, coffee bars, gas stations, and the

workplace with the convenience of vending carts and machines. Our

current eating environment is characterized by relatively inexpensive,

convenient, and tasty foods served in large portions (6). The percentage

of our energy intake coming from commercially prepared foods has

been increasing drastically over the last two or so decades (3-5).

How do overweight and obesity relate to the consumption of

commercially prepared foods? Large portions, eating out, and certain

types of foods may encourage people to eat more (7). Studies have

shown that energy intake increases as the portion size of food served

increases. Barbara J.Rolls, Ph.D., et al. (2002) reported that larger

portions led to greater energy intake regardless of the serving method and

subject characteristics (6). Subjects in their study consumed 30% more

energy when offered the largest portion than when offered the smallest

portion. Conninued consumption of large portions of food contributes

to excess energy intake and thus body fat gain.

    在外用餐的機率比起過去20年來說,成長了約3分之2,而速食食品的消費量大幅增加。美國人每周花費在外賣食物的餐費是一千萬。我們現在花費將近一半的餐費都是在外面吃,而且不僅僅在餐廳與速食店而已。食物幾乎到處都有在賣,我們在shopping mall時、運動的地方、戲院、咖啡廳、加油站和有便利的餐車與販賣機的工作地點,常常都是買食物來吃。我們現今的飲食環境,被塑造成花費少、便利,並且常常可以買到好吃的東西。在過去的20年以來,我們身體精力來源從外賣食物所吸收的比率大大的增加。那體重過重與肥胖怎麼會跟外賣食物的消費扯上關係呢?在外面吃,份量越大的食物以及某些特定的食物會讓人不自覺的越吃越多,研究顯示外賣食物份量的增加時,人體所吸收的量也就增加。Barbara J.Rolls, Ph.D., et al. (2002)研究報告表示大份量的食物會增加人體的吸收量,不管供給的方式跟食物的特色。研究顯示食物的份量大時比份量小的時候要多花費30%的動力在人體裡輸送,持續不斷的食用大份量的食物會導致超量的能量吸收,如此一來身體的脂肪也會增加。
