Interview with Fit Influencer Rania Pugholm

Beautiful fashion and fitness model from Dubai



So tell us about you?
I am Dubai based Arabic model, actress, international brand influencer. I started modeling when I was 17 while enjoying life in Germany. I was also the face of L’oreal products, of various international magazines such as cover girl playboy, and I am an international playmate. I love my work and I love traveling the world and multilingual: I can speak four languages fluently including Arabic, English, Danish, German and basic French. I also a fitness crazy and a lifestyle and health aficionado teaching women not only to eat healthily but also to be independent and empowered. Currently, I got my diploma in PR & Journalism at World Media Academy, a school accredited by Washington-based ICFJ (International Centre for Journalist).

What foods do you like?
I like Healthy clean food such as for my breakfast I have to have berries, I love eggs in the morning, salads for lunch and grilled fish with vegetable. one of my weakness so is potatoes but I try to stay away as much as I could. If I dine outdoor I love going for Japanese food I love rolls and sashimi.

For comfort food, I definitely love popcorn or gummy bear, as I am sure lots women do. When I am not getting ready for a photo shoot or competition.

What foods do you recommend for a perfect eating plan?
I would say try to not eat a big amount of carbs, and the best time to have it is morning, eat fresh and mostly grilled food, use healthy oil to cook with suck as olives oil and grapes. eat less red meat and eat more fish. add more food to your diet that is filled with antioxidant.

To keep my health and fitness on track in the colder months I enjoy joining a class such as yoga or kickboxing, which gives me a social environment and also a scheduled date and time to be there. Fitness is a daily part of my life, no matter what time of the year it is but it does get more difficult when the weather is hot and it’s hummed outside.

What other exercise classes do you like?
I love Pole fitness and I am pretty good at it, I also enjoy dancing classes and flexibility.

To fit in a workout when I don’t have time what exercise do you suggest?
Walking outside even if its only half hour or I watch a short core video on Youtube. Doing something is always better than doing nothing.

What foods do I stay away from?
Fast food!

What is your motivation?
Watching always someone who I admire their body and try to get it too.

Have I always been in great shape?
I had a nice shape but needed to tune up, you always can look better. My focus is on my health and wellbeing all year round. I don’t like the way I feel when I am inactive and eat unhealthily so I naturally stay in shape year round by just keeping my diet clean.

Feeling comfortable in my own skin has taken many years to achieve, especially for my offseason. Being in the fitness industry we will put ourselves out there in order to be judged on our bodies, which can be hard mentally, especially as women. I have learned that focusing on my health, and what I expose my body to, is more important than how I look. But by making healthy choices, I naturally stay in shape all year round. I may not be photo shoot ready, but I still feel good.

Do you have any nutrition advice?
Always remember to drink water and if you add lemon to it is an extra benefit you get the toxin out of your body. get the right amount of protein, vegetables, healthy grains that are high in fiber, healthy oils, daily.

How do you plan your day and your food diet?
First of all, I don’t diet. diet only works so far until you stop then all the work is gone. I always stay on a healthy meal plan. My morning breakfast will be for example:
Eggs or I homemade coconut milk Chai pouting, or healthy blueberry, banana pancakes, sometimes oats. I like to mix it up so is not boring.

For Lunch, I love salads because is filling and healthy but also not heavy. or avocado toast.

What is your motivation?
What is your number 1 weight loss secret? Stay away from carbs and I add shot of vitamins B12.

What would you like to say to our readers?
Do what you love and always find anew motivation to keep you going. don’t give up it takes time to get where you need to go but is totally worth it.

Thor is imprisoned across the universe without his hammer from his homeworld. He must fight in a gladiator style duels. He fights one battle against his former friend the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) to win his freedom and return to his homeworld of Asgard. His brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston) has control of Asgard. That is until Hela (Cate Blanchett) the goddess of death comes to seize control of the Asgard throne from Loki. He must return to Asgard to stop Hela and the impending doom of Ragnarok which would result in the complete destruction of the Asgard people and the Asgard civilization. She is more powerful than both Loki and him combined. Will they succeed in stopping the goddess of death?

The fast-paced film takes the hammer-wielding character films to a whole other level. Ragnarok is once again another solid addition to the epics that Marvel brings to the big screen with their multi-verse of superhero films.
