第一个空格里面，通过快速扫描第一句话，The human body is a remarkable food processor.（人体是一个不可思议的食物处理器），同学们会明显发现这篇短文一定是讲人体和食物之间的关系，接下来第二句话，As an adult, you may consume (S1) ____ a ton of food per year and still not gain or lose a pound of body weight. （作为一个成年人，你可能会每年消耗掉________一吨食物同时体重几乎不会发生变化），这里面的空格填什么呢？唯一的可能就是填“大约，差不多，几乎，超过”等词汇。因此有“about, nearly, almost, over”几个单词待选。接下来You are (S2) _____harnessing and consuming energy through the intricate (S3) ―_________ of your body in order to remain in energy balance. （你在____的汲取同时消耗着这些能量，通过你身体精巧的_____来保持能量守恒），这里面填什么呢？自然是持续不断的，一直的，后者应当是一个名词，反映在我们脑海里面的一般会是“机构，器官等等”。To (S4) ________a given body weight, your energy input must balance your energy output.（为了____使得体重如何，你的能量输入必须和你的能量输出相平衡），同学们稍微一猜就知道这里面一定是“保持一致，稳定等”， However sometimes the (S5) overall energy balance is upset, and your (S6)_________ body weight will either fall or (S7) ______.。（然而有时候______能量的平衡保持不佳，你的____体重就会下降或者_____），这个句子虽然不长，但是里面有三个空格需要填，我们分析一下，第一个和第二个一定是形容词，修饰能量平衡和体重，猜不出来没有关系，后面同学们可以感觉到一定是跟下降相反的表达，比如“上升，增加等”，因此备用单词为“increase, gain等”，这样就完成了前面单词部分的全部预测。后面的长难句由于过长，很难提前预测判断，因此同学们应努力做到把前面的小知识点提前好好分析一下，定能熟练掌握。
