Hi all!

Our 38th episode of Helwi Beirut included interesting guests and featured some informative reports. Our main guest was Mrs. Jinan al-Khatib Matraji wife of lawyer Saeb Matraji and daughter of Major General and former interior minister Sami Khatib. She talked about her life as a mother to four and a grandmother to 12 children. Jinane Matraji did not complete her studies because she got married at the very young age of 18 years old.

Who wore it best Jordin Sparks or Kim Kardashian, Kelly Rowland or Lake Bell, Kate Deluna or Kym Johnson, Kate Winselet or Kris Jenner, Selita Ebanks or Giada De Laureautis, Leighton Meester or Princess Beatrice, Kourtney Kardashian or Amner Lancaster?

Jonna Imad described emotional eating as eating for reasons other than hunger. Instead of hunger intiating the eating, an emotion triggers the eating.
