We talk to Health Influencer Kareem Gouda about how he maintains his diet, his guilty pleasures and of course a few tips and tricks!
How do you balance between family gatherings and staying fit?
My mom makes mombar, ma7shi and macaroni bachamel. Meanwhile I get my sad can of tuna and watch. They all laugh at me.
What is the worst Ramadan abs wrecker?
Macarona Bachamel is my favorite!
What do you miss most during Ramadan?
Nothing much, I still train and eat my usual food.
Do you prefer Bakkar or Bougy wa Tamtam?
Boogi w tamtam all the way!
Where’s your favorite place to eat during Ramadan?
There are two famous foul carts in Sayeda Zeinab; El Baghl and El Ga7sh. They’re amazing!
Did you ever cheat when you were young (taking a sip of water when no one is watching)?
Of course! I used to hide under the dining table and eat fresh bread with tehina. I used to get caught every time.
When you were young, what was your answer to “sayem walla zai kol sana”
During my polite years I would say “akeed sayem” and laugh. Later on I would say “2a2olak w matez3alsh?”
What can people do to stop themselves from gaining weight during Ramadan?
Eat everything you want but in smaller portions than your usual, drink a lot of water and replace dessert with a big plate of fruits.
2atayef or Samboosak?
2atayef ma7sheya 7agat
How to fight couch potating during Ramadan?
I have a kick boxing trainer who is quite big. If I don’t go to training, he will first call and shout, then come over and grab me so I never really have a chance to be a couch potato.
