Reward for virtue 对美德的奖赏

问题

Why did Hughs diet not work?

为什么休的节食没有作用?

原文

My friend, Hugh, has always been fat, but things got so bad recently that he decided to go on a diet. 

我的朋友休一直很胖,但是近来情况变得越发糟糕,以致他决定节食。

He began his diet a week ago. 

他是一星期前开始节食的。

First of all, he wrote out a long list of all the foods which were forbidden. 

首先,他开列了一张长长的单子,上面列了所有禁吃的食物。

The list included most of the things Hugh loves: butter, potatoes, rice, beer, milk, chocolate; and sweets. 

这张单子上的大多数食物都是休喜欢吃的:黄油、土豆、米饭、啤酒、牛奶、巧克力和糖果。

Yesterday I paid him a visit. I rang the bell and was not surprised to see that Hugh was still as fat as ever. 

昨天我去看望了他。我按响了门铃,当看到休仍和往常一样胖时,我并不感到惊奇。

He led me into his room and hurriedly hid a large parcel under his desk. 

他把我领进屋,慌忙把一个大包藏到了桌子下面。

It was obvious that he was very embarrassed. 

显然他感到很尴尬。

When I asked him what he was doing, he smiled guiltily and then put the parcel on the desk. 

当我问他正干什么时,他内疚地笑了,然后把那个大包拿到了桌上。

He explained that his diet was so strict that he had to reward himself occasionally. 

他解释说,他的饮食控制得太严格了,以致不得不偶尔奖赏自己一下。

Then he showed me the contents of the parcel.
