THOUGHTS TO

P

ER OND

Be content with what you have

This is the luxury issue and we’ve opened the doors to all things top notch, from the world’s most expensive yacht to the crème de la crème of fine dining. However we want you to consider this; enjoying life is a state of mind that does not have to be restricted to materialistic objects that break your bank.

HOW TO LIVE LUXURIOUSLY BUT SENSIBLY By Injaz Saudi Arabia

How is it a state of mind? Well, we won’t deny that when you buy that fashion forward Chanel Boy Bag you will feel those happy tingles. But really, how long does that feeling last? Until Chanel releases the next it bags you desperately want? A well-deserved splurge here and there can be guilt free, as long as your basic necessities are covered. But when you find yourself digging for an excuse to spend SR 15,000 on a leather bag even if it means you wont be able to cover your bills that month, it’s time to stop. Real satisfaction comes with contentment with having what you need and enjoying it for your own sake and not for the sake of social pressures. Buying the new bag, phone or even car or vacation spot with the intention of social status becomes a never-ending chase motivated by insecurity and fueled by wasted money. However, buying the bag because you genuinely love the way it looks will bring much more contentment than just wanting the latest and Keeping up with the Kardashians. Once you realize that you can feel just as fabulous without showing off the price tag, you will live a much simpler, much more meaningful life. And hopefully continue on that principle of living for the sake of future generations to come. We don’t know about you, but we can’t keep up with the latest on demand Chanel bag that makes us a “social A-Lister.”

Financial literacy is the ability and skill to manage and spend money effectively. Due to the rise of fashion trends, gadgets and easy means of traveling, consumers need to be smart to avoid falling into debts and a financial crisis. For this reason the concept of financial literacy is very important. TO MANAGE YOUR FINANCIALS YOU CAN CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING SIMPLE STEPS: • First, buy what you need and not what you want. Spend your money on something you will utilize. It is easy to buy items you like but not need, so try to buy the items you know will not end up in the back of the closet. • Second, it’s all about budgeting. Budget your financials by balancing between the essentials, entertainment and experiences. All these things will add value to your life, but through budgeting wisely you will be able to have everything in accordance to your ability and not just desires. • So what you have to keep in mind is to distinguish between what you want and what you need, find something that will add value to you and finally plan and priorities your budget. This will allow you to live the plifestyle you aim for.

Hekayat Ashara – THE STORY OF 10

Zaynab Odunsi, founder of Hekayat Ashara Photography Project, is a photography teacher at Dar Al Hekma College in Jeddah. After a visit to Al Ruwais district last year, Odunsi felt that the best way to help improve a community is by educating them. This sparked the idea for a photography project featuring the work of local women. The ten chosen ladies were Sara Bunsoy, Maha Moussa, Hayat Ali, Ashwag Al Muwallad, Nehal Al Harbi, Sahar Hejazi, Burkeya Eid, Samar Al Ammari, Deema Al Quraishy and Nouf Al Hindi.

“I want to teach these girls a creative skill, like photography, that has an undeniable power to communicate to a varied and wide audience.”

– ZAYNAB ODUNSI, HEKAYAT ASHARA FOUNDER

28 DESTINATION JEDDAH

Al Ruwais district is one of the oldest areas in Jeddah, dating back to over 300 years. The streets of Al Ruwais represent 300 years of Jeddahwi heritage, traditions, history and culture. Ten women residing in Al Ruwais district have been chosen to participate in a photography project that will, through photography, tell the Story of Ten.

The definition of hekaya (plural: hekayat) in Arabic is story, and ashara is the written word for the number ten. The Hekayat Ashara photography project is a community service initiative aimed at empowering ten selected women from Al Ruwais district by giving them a voice through the art of photography. These ten women consist of five Saudi


nationals and five legally resident foreigners whose only common ground is their residential area.

“I’ve always been an ambitious dreamer and when people put me down I was still determined to make a difference someday. Hekayat Ashara is giving me that opportunity.”

– DEEMA AL QURAISHY

The main objectives of this project are a) to document the proposed redevelopment plans for Al Ruwais district, b) develop the skills and improve the lives of women through education, and c) provide them with an opportunity to grow and enjoy a promising future. Through their photographs, the girls aim to preserve their residential district with its graffiti and street art, fashion and social and community gatherings.

Simultaneously, the girls are directly and indirectly encouraging the young Saudi generation to care more about their community by showcasing its beauty.

“The Hekayat Ashara photography project allowed me to expand my horizons, increase my knowledge and experience in the art of photography and meet brilliant people.” – HAYAT ALI

Once selected, each woman was given her own professional DSLR camera (thanks to the generosity of the Canon Al Quraishy group) and began their ten weeks of photography orientation and classes, in addition to a one-month English language course from Dar Al Hekma College. Along with the photography course, each of the ten participants also worked alongside a student from the school of Design and Architecture at Dar Al Hekma. The student acted as the participant's mentoring figure. For a certain number of weeks the group of participants, mentors and instructors met on a weekly basis to conduct photo shoots in Al Ruwais district, after which the participants were given constructive feedback on their photography.

DESTINATION JEDDAH 29


By the end of the project, the desired outcomes are a special outdoor photography exhibition showcasing the ten participants' artwork, a published book designed by Najla Bassam entailing the background of the project, interviews, data and images compiled from the participants and the Dar Al Hekma students they worked with, an interactive website by Nada Zaidan and an educational program for local schools regarding art within the community. “The Hekayat Ashara photography project is one of the best experiences I’ve ever lived.” – BURKEYA EID

While the participants are continuously developing their hekayat through the art of photography, the interactive website is being designed simultaneously and exhibition is being planned. The website is due to be launched in the first week of November 2013; it will display sneak peeks into the lives of the ten participants, will include a blog and updated artwork, and will include information regarding the upcoming exhibition which is due to take place on December 5, 2013.

Bringing it Home

SAW, 2013

Sami Al Turki was born and raised in Jeddah but splits his time between here and Dubai where he studied at the American University. In the past four years the artist has enjoyed many successes exhibiting his work worldwide. He enthusiastically captures and delivers desolate rubble-ridden landscapes, strong highlighting and exhibiting the wasteland of civilization within nature. Last month, Sami put up a solo show for Jeddah, about Jeddah. 32 DESTINATION JEDDAH


At Athr Gallery, in an exhibition titled From There, To Here & Inevitably Into Eternity, Sami gave us an idea of how he sees the current living situation in our city. Home is where the heart is and he expresses that recently there has been a gap, an unfulfilled dream and a life that is out of reach for the new generations. It isn’t even the dream of extreme wealth - just one of contentment, comfort and a wholeness within our hometowns.

MITRE BOX, 2013

GOUGE, 2013

The pieces are blunt, stark, and diagramlike, while a few others are dreamier. Abandoned and jarring looking housing projects reflected onto themselves, the effect is doubled and intensified. There are pieces showing suspended gray cinder block structures and jagged piping. Sami expands on this and shares American homes and shows how this isn’t just a local issue. The artworks don’t necessarily read as alarming but instead are more ethereal and hard. The exhibition as a whole is one piece of art with different parts completing the story. Sami reconciles the conflict in the last pieces of the exhibition. Housing projects are superimposed onto cloudy skies, and are meant to remind the viewer of a higher and more worthwhile afterlife.

Feather your wardrobe!

Growing up with four sisters allowed me to witness the transformation of beauty, beautiful dresses and style. It also deepend my fascination with fashion. After my studies of visual arts, I decided to gain experience starting in Lebanon and the GCC. Shortly after, I guess it was my fate to stay in Dubai, establish and launch my brand.

The Fine in Fine Dining How would you categorize a fine dining restaurant from a simply posh one? Is it the crisp white linens and tablecloth? Waiters in Tuxedos? Or the number of forks on the table? What particular qualities does it need to have to set it apart from other restaurants? Fine dining, as the name suggests, refers to the FINEST food, service and ambience, along with the highest standards of quality and cleanliness. All these aspects determine the overall quality a diner must experience in fine dining. As far as food goes, it should offer diners an experience they cannot find anywhere else. The menu should be creative, exquisite and original. Special attention to detail should be given to dishes; which use quality ingredients and are carefully and thoughtfully plated, pleasing both to the eye and palate. Service: Diners expect exemplary service, which must be attentive but never invasive. Staff should be expertly trained, enthusiastic and professional. Starting from the host who meets guests in a friendly manner, to the waiters who crumb tables between courses and leading up to the speed of valet parking, no detail is ever too small. Ambience: environment and decor should match the restaurant's vision. Aesthetics such as staff uniform, lighting, china, glassware and silverware should be spotless, elegant, tasteful and exclusive.

AND THE MICHELIN STAR GOES TO… When planning a trip, we usually get overwhelmed with the amount of guidebooks and “places to see” lists. This is where the Michelin guide steps in. It is an annual guide published by the French company Michelin for the last hundred years.

THE HISTORY: It all started in 1900; the Michelin brothers André and Édouard, founders of the wellknown tires company, decided that the best way to boost the demand for tires was to create free maps for French motorists in order to make traveling around and finding places to refuel an easy task. At the time, there were around only 3000 cars in France. Shortly, they started creating more guides to different countries from Tunisia to Portugal. During World War I, the production of the guides had to be suspended. One day, one of the brothers saw a man using one of the guides to prop up a work bench, and so decided to charge for the guides, as he believed that people only value what they paid for. During World War II, the guides had to be suspended once again, but then the Allied Forces asked the company to produce guides for military use, as they were believed to be the best up-to-date maps available.

66 DESTINATION JEDDAH

When the company realized the popularity of the restaurants section, they started hiring “inspectors” to review restaurants. The anonymity of these inspectors is very important to the company. They are even discouraged from revealing their jobs to their families! Based on the inspectors’ reviews, a restaurant may receive one to three Michelin stars. Gaining or losing a Michelin star can dramatically affect the restaurant’s success, and these stars have been called the “Oscars” of restaurants. The Michelin guide has also been awarding “Rising Star” to restaurants that could potentially gain stars in the future. What’s better than a guide that has lived over one hundred years and survived two world wars to tell you where to go?

Michelin Red Guides are mostly for restaurants or hotels, while Green Guides include more tourist attractions and a variety of cultural destinations.

Spirituality Let us firstly explore both concepts from a linguistic point of view.

A MUSLIM'S CAREER: BEING CONTENT VS. AMBITIOUS By Mohammed Faris, Abu Productive

There seems to be an age-old struggle between two forces in people’s mind that is hindering many from achieving their full potential. This is the apparent contradiction between being ambitious versus being content. Both qualities are well respected and even encouraged to have, however when they are brought together in one person’s mind or heart, there seems to be a conflict. More importantly, this dilemma has infected the ummah (society) with the disease of laziness; some say ”Alhamdulillah, I’m content with what I have, why should I be ambitious and strive for more?” I translate this into: “I can’t be bothered to do anything, I just want to live within my comfort zone.” As you can expect, this mind-set is dangerous for the ummah’s growth.

Ambition: Drive, determination, enterprise, initiative, eagerness, motivation, resolve, enthusiasm, zeal, hunger, commitment, a sense of purpose; aspiration, intention, goal, aim, objective, object, purpose, intent, plan, desire, wish, design, target, dream. Contentment: Contentedness, content, satisfaction, gratification, fulfillment, happiness, pleasure, cheerfulness. ease, comfort, well being, peace, equanimity, serenity, tranquility. As you can see, from a definition point of view, there isn’t much of a contradiction between the two concepts. The states of being “ambitious” and “content” seem to serve different aspects of our drive to be the best – one is driving us (ambition), the other is making us enjoy the ride (contentment)! WHERE DOES THE CONTRADICTION LIE? The contradiction lies in our misunderstanding that being content means not wanting to achieve more, and that being ambitious to achieve more is a sign that you’re not content. This is definitely not the case. SO HOW CAN WE RESOLVE THIS IDEA? Let us look into the Quran and Seerah of Prophet Muhammad (Peace and blessings be upon him) to answer this dilemma: Regarding ambition, Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta’ala) says in the Quran what means: “And those who pray, “Our Lord! Grant unto us wives and offspring who will be the comfort of our eyes, and give us (the grace) to lead the righteous.” [Surat 25 Al-Furqan, Verse 74] And our Prophet (Peace and blessings be upon him) said: “The distance between every two levels of Paradise is like the distance between the sky and the Earth, so if you ask Allah for anything, ask Him for the Firdaus, for it is the last part of Paradise and the highest part of Paradise, and at its top there is the Throne

of Beneficent, and from it gush forth the rivers of Paradise.” [Bukhari, Book #93,

Hadith #519]

Furthermore, in numerous places throughout the Quran, we are told that to achieve Jannah we have to: 1) Have imaan 2) Do righteous works We can now understand that we should be ambitious; however this ambition is to serve the person’s ultimate goal and that is to gain Allah’s pleasure and entering the highest part of Jannah (Paradise). Regarding contentment, Allah says in the Qur’an what means: “Nor strain thine eyes in longing for the things We have given for enjoyment to parties of them, the splendor of the life of this world, through which We test them: but the provision of thy Lord is better and more enduring.” [Surat 20 Taha,

Verse 131]

The Prophet (Peace be upon him) said what means: “Riches does not mean, having a great amount of property, but riches is self-contentment.” (Sahih Bukhari, Book #76, Hadith #453)

The above clearly demonstrates that contentment should be related to the dunya (life) matters and can be reconciled with being ambitious in this life.

“DON’T BE AFRAID TO BE AMBITIOUS FOR OUR UMMAH IN THIS DUNYA, AND FOR YOURSELF IN THE AKHIRAH.”

The following hadith narrated from Abu Hurayrah (May Allah be pleased with him) expresses this balance between ambition and contentment succinctly: “People say that I have narrated many Hadiths (the Prophet’s narrations). Had it not been for two verses in the Qur’an, I would not have narrated a single Hadith, and the verses are: “Verily those who conceal the clear sign and the guidance which We have sent down.. (up to) Most Merciful.” (2:159-160). And no doubt our Muhajir (emigrant) brothers used to be busy in the market with their business (bargains) and our Ansari brothers used to be busy with their property (agriculture). But I (Abu Huraira) used to stick to Allah’s Apostle, content with what will fill my stomach and I used to attend that which they used not to attend and I used to memorize that which they used not to memorize.” (Book #3, Hadith #118) This example of Abu Huraira (may Allah be pleased with him) shows that he was ambitious enough to memorize the ahadith (sayings) of the Prophet (Peace and blessings be upon him), yet he was also content with his restricted provision in this world. So in summary, to resolve the dilemma is as follows: Be content with your provision in this dunya (life). But be ambitious about your akhirah (after-life) and never be complacent about your good deeds done for Allah.

GLAMPING The Luxurious Outdoors Inhaling the refreshing piney scent, feeling the soft mud under our shoes and biting into sweet s’mores, then dealing with strange slimy bugs, humidity, heat and cooking over an open fire… sounds nice at first but perhaps a little too stressful for us fulltime urban-dwellers. As modern times progress and less people are used to less than comfortable living conditions, a niche has opened up around the globe for nature lovers who aren’t quite used to nature. Glamping (glamorous camping) is the latest way to enjoy the great outdoors in a cozier way. Check out some of the different and unique ways glamping can be an amazing experience.

Some are equipped with wood burning stoves or are coolly built for stargazing. 3. TREE HOUSES Yes, tree houses. What could be cooler than being up there with your friends or family, Swiss Family Robinson style enjoying the view, with electricity and running water of course. 4. TIPIS AND YURTS With a small carbon footprint, tough durable fabric, a central wooden fire, these are great alternatives to the basic tent. They’re more spacious, safer against the elements and they're well heated. 5. CARAVANS The caravan is stationary and is luxuriously furnished with a kitchen and bathroom. They can also look like anything from a regular VW van to a wooden gypsy-style caravan cart. DESTINATION JEDDAH 79

SALAM MEDICAL: “Be Our Guest In Your Home” The fact that people usually tend to avoid hospitals and clinics is no secret. The long waiting time, the queues and the crowd are just a few contributing factors as to why people, specifically at an older age, avoid hospitals. When you reach a certain age in life, you need to go to your doctor for regular check-ups every once in a while, even if you aren’t feeling ill. Unfortunately, when faced with simple obstacles, people give up and postpone their visit to the doctor. Simply stated, the solution is Salam Medical.

Salam Medical is a unique and renowned company that has always provided homecare medical services with the utmost proficiency and expertise. Their name, Salam (meaning peace in Arabic), represents what they believe in and what they are about: safety, accountability, leadership, access to quality care, and management of unique needs of the client and family. Their wide range of services includes physicians, nurses, physiotherapy, respiratory therapy, dieticians and social workers in addition to services available upon request and according to patient’s needs. Constantly developing, Salam Medical now has the ultimate and ideal solution that will save the elderly from the hassle of physically going to hospitals. They are now providing yet another life-altering program called the 50+ Medicine Home

Health Program. This program was created with the main purpose being to aid the prevention of illness and medicines for the elderly. With a team of experts including Dr. Mohammed Basheikh, a consultant and assistant professor internist, geriatrician and memory problems, and Pearl Echauz, case management nurse, the program has proven to be highly effective. As people grow older, they tend to become more cautious regarding their health; however, a significant percentage still refuse to go for regular check-ups due to the assumption that since they don’t feel specific symptoms, they don’t need to see a doctor. One of the many benefits of 50+ Medicine Home Health Program is how easily accessible it is. All patients need to do is call and ask for a visit. Yes it’s just that simple. A team of experts will visit you in the comfort of your own home surrounded by your loved ones and you can have your check-up right then and there. Dr. Mohammed Basheikh specifically conducts complete and thorough check-ups in order to ensure that medicines are avoided and illnesses are prevented beforehand. The geriatric assessment the doctor conducts is an instrument designed to collect data on the medical, psychosocial and functional capabilities and limitations of elderly patients. This assessment is also vital as it effectively addresses the most widespread problems faced by the elderly. In some cases where a patient requires extra attention, Salam Medical provides a specialized team to take care of patients in their own homes. This is an added benefit because being in a hospital surrounded by illnesses could negatively affect the patient’s health and wellbeing, and simultaneously could add to the patient’s feeling of illness. The benefits of utilizing Salam Medical’s services are countless and significant improvements in the patient’s attitude towards medical care have not only been seen, but also felt.

DR. HYTHAM JAMJOOM Where Art Meets Medicine

Dr. Hytham Jamjoom is a renowned Consultant Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon. He is a member of the Canadian Society of Plastic Surgeons, an active member of the American Society of Plastic Surgery, a member of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and a member of the Saudi Society of Plastic Surgeons. 84 DESTINATION JEDDAH

At what age did you first develop an interest in plastic surgery? I developed an interest in plastic surgery when I was first exposed to it in medical school. I found it had a strong relationship with art, which was my interest in school. Plastic surgery is a combination of beauty, art and medicine—learning that fact was just the beginning for me.


"You are beautiful in the eyes of others in different ways, But to be beautiful in your own eyes is what matters." - Dr. Hytham Jamjoom

What are the most common cosmetic surgeries demanded in Saudi Arabia by men and women? The top five procedures I conduct here for women are breast, abdomen, nose, liposuction and finally the non-surgical Botox and fillers. A major bulk of plastic surgery for women is in the breast and abdomen due to pregnancy. The most common procedures I perform for men here are hair transplant, Botox filler, liposuction in the abdomen area and gynecomastia (benign enlargement of breast tissue in males). Why is there a relationship between plastic surgery and psychiatrists/psychologists?

When did you move back to Saudi, and did you face any challenges here? I moved back to Saudi in 2007 and rather than facing challenges, I found that society was and still is eager to improve their image by seeking new plastic surgeons. Plastic surgery was somewhat frowned upon within our society. In your opinion, when and how did that change? I grew up in Riyadh, which is more conservative than Jeddah. Throughout my childhood and teenage years, I’ve always been told that plastic surgery is haram (prohibited in Islam). When I got exposed to plastic surgery in medical school, I personally realized that plastic surgery is not about changing the way we were created by Allah. We’re merely boosting selfconfidence by improving our image, features and body. Are most of your patients men or women? Ninety percent of my patients are women and ten percent are men. I mean worldwide, not just in terms of Saudi.

Your image as a person and the way you see yourself depends on your psychological state. If you think you look good and you are confident, then you don’t need surgical improvements. In some cases a patient can disapprove of their image before and even after surgery and therefore become depressed. Why do you think plastic surgery is growing in popularity? People are growing in terms of awareness and level of education whether it's via social media or TV. That’s in addition to accessibility, which is also a main factor contributing to plastic surgery’s growth in popularity. Any word of advice for young plastic surgeons out there? Plastic surgery is not what it seems; it requires long hours of hard work and dedication. Media only focuses on cosmetic surgery, but it's a lot more than that. The bulk of plastic surgery is reconstructive surgery, which is the toughest. Don't be disappointed during your training and stay determined. Mob: +966-558647700 Web: www.hythamjamjoom.com

WAIT, THIS IS ALL ABOUT

YOUR WEIGHT!

Dear Destination Readers, As a fitness professional the number one question I get asked by all is…

WHAT DO I EAT? That is a million-dollar question and one that never has the same answer. Before we start I must state that there is a lot of information, research and diets out there today. Yet our population is still getting larger and nutrition based diseases such as diabetes and obesity are rife! WHY? Well in my opinion a diet is not a long-term choice that you want to be in forever. When a person follows a so called diet they will normally outlive it, then return to their old ways and regain and possibly gain more fat than they started with. It is a slippery slope and a dangerous one as well! But that’s another story.

SO FOR THIS MONTH I WANT TO SHARE MY PROFESSIONAL OPINION ON THE FOLLOWING: 1-How to lose weight successfully through nutrition, NOT DIET! 2-How to eat for performance and maintenance. 3-How to eat to gain muscle.

86 DESTINATION JEDDAH

By Jill Calvert

HOW TO LOSE WEIGHT? Formula- Expend more calories than you consume. Simple? Not so much. Too often I see clients on a severely low calorie diet of as little as 500 calories and are working out two hours a day on the treadmill, (sigh). WRONG WRONG WRONG! You need to eat the right food and do proper, not excessive exercise.

TIPS • Track calories, energy over two weeks before changing, then adjust with small changes. • Don’t skip breakfast as this may help with overall reduction in daily calories. • I’ve had clients who were snackers and never consume a proper meal. I often try to set that they eat three meals and two snacks. • Exercise the minimum amount initially. I strongly suggest resistance and metabolic training. Short and intense bursts. • Eat more healthy fats and reduce the amount of sugar they consume. Opt for starchy vegetables over grains and keep fruit for after workouts only.


HOW TO EAT FOR PERFORMANCE AND MAINTENANCE? Formula- Eat adequate calories to support daily functions and training. SO now that you have reached your goal weight and you are very happy with your shape, you want to maintain this. Again this can just be hard especially if you have been a yoyo dieter!

TIPS • Monthly checks of body fat. • Daily tracking of intake and how your energy was during your training. This is a great tool and one that I do personally. If my energy is low on the same day each week I can go back to my schedule and see why. Maybe my training has been too much in the run up. So I either reduce training or supplement with more food to support and trail this. Bear in mind it is about trial and error. What works for one may not work for another! HOW TO EAT TO GAIN MUSCLE? A situation that I’m sure everyone reading wants to be in! Well believe it or not, to successfully gain quality weight is EXTREMELY hard. Formula for quality weight gainconsume more calories than required and TRAIN SMART.

TIPS • Daily tracking of intake and how your energy was during your training. If you are not gaining muscle and improving then make small adjustments, increase calories and look at your strength-training program. • Consume more whole foods in the form of starchy vegetables such as sweet potato, parsnips and rice after training. I tend not to encourage weight gain powders, however I do think that a protein supplement can aid recovery and performance. • Eat calorie dense foods such as nuts, meats and starchy vegetables as they are higher in calories than lettuce, for example. A lot of salad yes will fill you but will not add quality calories to your daily intake. • Train SMART! Resistance training minimum three times a week, working out the whole body with challenging weights to stimulate muscle growth. Adequate recovery and adequate cardiovascular work. Even though you want to gain weight don’t shy away from cardio, just don’t do it everyday. Try two to three times a week for 30 minutes. Opt for HIT training! DESTINATION JEDDAH 87


WHEN I MEET A CLIENT WHO WANTS TO LOSE WEIGHT THIS IS WHAT I HAVE THEM DO: For one week track and monitor what they normally eat, track the times and how they felt before and after and also how they feel when they are working out. From there I can gauge how many calories they are consuming and where they are getting them. It is also interesting for them to see either how much or little they are eating. Then I will ask them if their weight has stayed the same for a few weeks. If it has then this is my benchmark of how many calories their body is using to maintain their weight. Their aim is to lose fat. So I initially suggest small changes and reduce calories very little and train SMART. The reason why I aim to make small manageable changes is if you suddenly reduce calories to 500 and exercise seven days a week two hours a day, yes, you will lose a lot of weight, but at some stage it will stall. Why? Because your body got used to it. SO where do you go from there? You have not reached your ideal fat percentage and your muscle mass has dropped. What do you do? You can’t really exercise more or eat less‌ So in my opinion slow steady steps are key.

Stay Healthy,

Jill 88 DESTINATION JEDDAH

SO you have heard me say track your intake. There is an application that I recommend called MYFITNESS PAL. There you can input all food and exercise for the days. It breaks down your intake in how much carbohydrate fat and protein you consume and you can also input your exercise. Also you can share it with your friends and Personal Trainer for added support.


IT'S ABOUT YOU AND

CAVIAR

Caviar is defined as the salted eggs (roe) of sturgeon. The sturgeon is a very large fish with bony plates on its body and this fish species is known for its caviar. It is no secret that caviar is one of the most expensive foods in the world. In fact, centuries ago it was only served to royalty and upper class citizens. Caviar is not only a luxury for your palate but also for your hair and skin. Caviar speeds up the rejuvenation process of your skin, decreases the process of aging and protects your skin from the damage caused by make up, the sun and weather. Some would say that caviar should be your skin's main source of protein due to the fact that it is rich in amino acids that are directly absorbed into the skin. Facial treatments utilizing natural products such as gold and caviar are growing in popularity due to their many benefits. Oriana Salon and Spa offer fresh caviar facial treatments that are developed along the following three distinct lines: moisturizing, nourishing and firming. Their treatments consist of pure extracts of fresh caviar cells and fluids with light and smooth textures. Due to caviar's high oil and protein content, it is not only beneficial for the face but also hair, body and even nails. After just one session, results such as hydration and nutrition will be felt immediately.

Caviar consists of omega-3 fatty acids, collagen and keratin, which are highly beneficial for repairing dry, damaged hair, healing split ends, and they contribute to the beautiful, healthy appearance of hair. One of the most popular hair treatments offered at Oriana is Kerastase Chronologiste which consists of fresh caviar extracts and leaves the hair feeling incredibly soft, deeply nourished, strengthened and hydrated.
