SASA’S MONTAGS MOTIVATION: Hab Ausreden oder sei erfolgreich – beides zusammen geht nicht! – Jürgen Höller

Du stammst aus zu einfachen Verhältnissen? Arnold Schwarzenegger hat dies nicht daran gehindert, erfolgreichster Bodybuilder aller Zeiten, ein erfolgreicher Geschäftsmann und ein erfolgreicher Schauspieler zu werden. Was sind für Dich einfache Verhältnisse? Haben Deine Eltern Dich nicht zur Welt gebracht, Dich nicht großgezogen und ernährt? Du lebst heute, und damit hast Du die Grundvoraussetzungen für Deinen zukünftigen Erfolg – ganz egal, wie einfach Deine Verhältnisse, aus denen Du kommst, auch sein mögen (ich stamme selber aus einfachen Verhältnissen und bin stolz darauf).

Du hast eine körperliche Beeinträchtigung? Josè Feliciano hinderte seine Blindheit nicht daran, sich 38 Goldene Schallplatten zu erspielen. Der blinde Popmusiker Stevie Wonder zählt zu den bekanntesten seiner Branche. In einer amerikanischen Fernsehsendung sah ich einen behinderten Mann aus Peru, der keine Arme besaß (von ein paar winzigen Stummeln abgesehen). Er hatte jedoch gelernt, mit den Füßen Gitarre zu spielen. Als er interviewt wurde, richtete er einen Appell an die amerikanische Bevölkerung, denn er wollte mit seiner Tournee durch die USA dazu ermuntern, optimistisch zu sein und das Leben als schön anzusehen. Er sei optimistisch, es gehe ihm gut, und er möchte diese Lebensfreude auch an andere weitergeben.

Welche Kraft, welches positive Denken muss dieser junge Mann wohl besitzen, um an die amerikanische Bevölkerung einen Aufruf zum Spaß, zur Freude am Leben zu richten? Anschließend legte er seine Gitarre auf den Boden und spielte mit den Fußzehen ein solch wundervolles Lied, dass mir die Tränen in die Augen traten.

Welche Behinderung hast Du, die Dich darin hindert, erfolgreich zu sein? Du hast nicht die richtigen Beziehungen? Jesus kannte keinen einflussreichen Menschen, und trotzdem ist er unsterblich!
Hab Ausreden oder sei erfolgreich – beides zusammen geht nicht!

How to Soothe a Sunburn by Jacquie Carter, beauty expert

How to Soothe a Sunburn

Posted by Jacquie Carter, beauty expert

How_to_sooth_sunburn_DiscoverGoodBeauty_If you enjoy being outdoors as much as I do then it’s very likely that you too have experienced a sunburn or two during your lifetime. And boy oh boy, are they hard to forget. The pain, the redness, the peeling…it’s a disaster for our skin. And the one thing we all look for post sunburn… is ways to help soothe our poor aching skin.

Unprotected sun exposure is a key contributor to skin damage, premature aging and even skin cancer. But lets face it, even those of us who take every precaution to protect our skin against the harmful UVA and UVB rays can sometime mess up. And when we get a sunburn we sure do pay the price. So, if you forgot to take cover in the shade, didn’t wear your Broad spectrum sunscreen or perhaps simply forgot to reapply after a quick dip in the pool I have a few tips to help calm your skin. If it’s red, if it’s in pain then it is screaming for your help and there are a few ways to soothe that sunburn.

Here are a few quick tips to help soothe the sunburn.


If your body feels like it is on fire after getting burned then you need to take a moment to cool down. Take a cool shower or bath to help alleviate the discomfort and to keep your overall body temperature from rising. Avoid washcloths, as even the softest cloth may feel like course sandpaper gnawing at your skin. Allow the cool water to cover your body to provide that cooling down comfort. If you can, forget about using soap. Doesn’t sound appealing I’m sure but, some harsh cleansers and fragrances in your bar soap or shower gel can aggravate your already irritated skin.

If you don’t have access to a cool shower or bath right away then try spraying your skin with cold water or applying cold compresses. Any little bit of cold water should give your skin a little bit of relief.

Top Tip: Don’t linger too long in the tub. If you soak for too long chances are your skin will become dryer and more irritated. You want to avoid dry skin at all costs. Remember dry skin leads to itching and scratching a sunburn, leads to PAIN!


Depending on the location and severity of your sunburn you may wish to avoid any tight clothing or articles of clothes that are in troublesome spots. The straps on your bathing suit, the waistband on your pants and even the collar on your shirt can become major points of irritation. So, as soon as you can, take off your clothes to prohibit any unnecessary tightness or rubbing of your sunburned skin. If you can stay unclothed,  then go for it. If you can’t, cover up with loose fitting lightweight clothing to avoid the pain.


Lots of people have used aloe for instant sunburn relief. For quick relief until you can get a properly medicated anti-irritant product, you could just snip off a couple of aloe leaves and squeeze the gel directly onto your burned skin.

But remember, there is no substitute for a true anti-irritant product. Look for a product that lists among its indications treatment of sunburn and skin irritation. Sunburn is a medical condition that should be treated properly.


When your skin is fried it is also dehydrated from the much needed moisture it needs to function at its best. Replenish your entire body with water during this time. If your body is hydrated it will help your sunburn feel better and heal faster. So drink up. This is also a good time to nourish and hydrate the skin’s surface to keep it from becoming dry, more irritated and itchy.


With most sunburn comes pain and inflammation. Taking an over the counter pain reliever such as ibuprofen or aspirin can definitely help with the discomfort. Always take medication as directed on the packaging and discontinue use if you have any issues.

Sunburn can be a serious thing and should not be taken lightly. If you do experience a burn:

Get out of the sun right away. The longer you keep your skin exposed the more damage you may get. This exposure can ultimately increase your chances of skin cancer. Remove yourself immediately.

Check for blisters. If your skin has blistered as a result of the sunburn then you should consider seeking medical attention as soon as possible.

No one wants to derail his or her summer plans just because of sunburn. Go out and enjoy just remember to stay covered up and in the shade, wear an SPF 30 broad spectrum sunscreen and reapply throughout the day. If your skin is starting to redden, remove yourself from the sun. Hey, there are a lot of indoor activities that are fun too. Think movies, bowling, mani/pedi and my favorite….SHOPPING!

Remember, the healthiest skin is the most beautiful!

The Alkaline Diet: What You Need to Know by Susan Bowerman, MS, RD, CSSD, FAND

The Alkaline Diet: What You Need to Know

Posted by Susan Bowerman, MS, RD, CSSD, FAND

Alkaline DietsFollowers of the alkaline diet believe it promotes health – but does it?

The alkaline diet seems to be enjoying some renewed popularity these days. I say “renewed” because the idea of eating foods that promote “alkalinity” in the body has been around for decades. The first paper on the topic, in fact, was published over 100 years ago1. Like most diet fads, the alkaline diet seems to have been “rediscovered” – and is being promoted by followers as a sure path to health and vitality. But what is an alkaline diet? And can it deliver on those promises?

The Alkaline Diet – The Claim

The alkaline diet promotes the idea that eating certain foods – and avoiding others – will help keep the body from becoming too “acidic”. Alkaline diet proponents believe that taking in too many acid-forming foods upsets the body’s natural acid-alkaline balance, and so an emphasis is placed on eating foods that are said to be more “alkaline”.

The diet has sometimes been called the “alkaline ash” diet – the idea being that you should eat foods that, once metabolized, leave behind an alkaline residue, or ash. This dietary ash is pretty much just want it sounds like: it’s what’s left after you “burn up” everything in that food that can be broken down – primarily a mixture of minerals. And, depending upon which minerals are present in a food, the resulting ash is termed either “acid ash” or “alkaline ash”.

Supporters of the alkaline diet believe that eating too many foods that produce acid ash can negatively impact health, and advise a diet rich in foods that produce a more alkaline ash.

The belief is that by tinkering with the body’s acid-base balance and eating more “alkaline” foods, better health will result. Processed foods, sugar, alcohol, meats, dairy and grains are considered too acidic (and therefore shunned), whereas fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds are favored for their alkaline properties.

Acidity and Alkalinity in the Body

Those who follow the alkaline diet believe that it helps the body maintain an optimal pH level.

If you’re not familiar with the term, pH is simply a scale that measures how acidic or how alkaline (or “basic”) a liquid substance is. The pH scale ranges from zero to 14 – the lower the number, the more acidic the substance is; a pH of seven is considered neutral; and as the number rises, the substance is more alkaline (sometimes called “basic”).

Now, it is true that if the body becomes too acidic, your health will suffer. No argument there. But here’s what is also true: you can’t change the acidity of a healthy body simply by eating certain foods and avoiding others. Let’s look at this issue a little more closely – and separate fact from fiction.

First of all, your body doesn’t have a single pH value – it depends on what you’re testing. The pH of the digestive fluids in your stomach are highly acidic (values in healthy people range somewhere between about 1.5 and 2). But the pH of your small intestine – where most of your nutrients are absorbed – is more alkaline, topping out at about 7.4. And, the blood of a healthy person is also slightly alkaline, and is maintained by the body within avery narrow range of about 7.35 to 7.45.

This is an important point, because the chemical reactions in your body can only take place within this pH range. And so, your body maintains your blood pH through systems that involve, primarily, your lungs and your kidneys. As long as you’re in good health, you can’t (nor would you want to) change your blood pH through diet. Because, if the pH were to stray from these narrow confines, you’d be in serious trouble.

On the other hand, the pH of the urine in a healthy person tends to have a range – generally between 6.5 and 8.0 – depending on the time of day (values tend to be higher in the morning) as well as what’s been eaten. Proponents of the alkaline diet frequently check the pH of their urine with special test strips – aiming for values on the higher end of the scale which (they believe) indicates they’re staying on track with the diet and moving the body to a more alkaline state.

But this ignores the fact that if your body is functioning properly and you’re healthy, the pH of your urine will naturally fluctuate – and those fluctuations indicate that the body is doing its job to help maintain the pH of the blood within that very narrow desired range. And, the pH of the urine is not a reflection of the pH of your blood.

The Alkaline Diet: The Bottom Line

The bottom line is this: there’s no scientific support for the idea that following an alkaline diet will affect the pH of the body in a healthy person. And (as you now know), the idea that you would even want to change the pH of your system doesn’t make sense, either.

That said, the alkaline diet does place an emphasis on plant foods in the diet – especially fruits and vegetables – which isn’t a bad thing. After all, these foods offer up an abundance of vitamins, minerals and fiber. So if there are any positive takeaways from the diet, that would be one.

On the other hand, there are also many healthy foods that are not permitted on this plan – including nuts, fish, poultry, eggs, lentils, beans, soybeans and avocado. So, finding enough protein on an alkaline diet could be challenging.

Many believers say that the alkaline diet has brought them benefits such as weight loss or improved digestive function. But, if they are attributing these benefits to the alkaline nature of their diet, they’re focusing their attention on the wrong thing. Watery, high fiber foods – whether “acid” or “alkaline’ – are filling and satisfying and help promote regularity.

How much protein do you need? by Susan Bowerman, MS, RD, CSSD, FAND

How much protein do you need?

Posted by Susan Bowerman, MS, RD, CSSD, FAND

How much protein do you need? | Herbalife Nutrition AdviceDo you know how much protein you should be eating? Today, I’ll show you how to calculate your protein needs and share a a list of how much protein some common foods contain.

The amount of protein you need to eat every day depends on a lot of factors like how much you weigh, and how much muscle you have – not just whether you’re male or female. But you might not know that if you did a simple search on the Internet. You’d probably read that most people eat more than enough protein to meet their needs, or that the protein needs of the “average” woman is about 46 grams of protein a day, and the average man needs about 56 grams. But keep this in mind: these guidelines – established by Food and Nutrition Board of the Institute of Medicine – are set at levels to simply meet the basic needs of most people.

Does a ‘one size fits all’ for protein make sense? Calorie needs differ from person to person, so why not protein? After all, people come in all different sizes, and their body composition is highly variable – it stands to reason that protein needs could vary a lot, too. It doesn’t seem right that a 220lb (100kg) guy who works construction and is into bodybuilding would have the same protein needs as a 150lb (68kg), male bank teller who sits most of the day and spends his evenings on the couch.

How much protein is right for you?

The other guideline from the Institute of Medicine recommends that we eat 10-35% of our total daily calories from protein. This guideline helps a little – a least it attempts to tie protein needs to calorie needs. But the percent-of-calories range is pretty wide … and most people would be hard-pressed to figure it out anyway. So how can you estimate out how much protein your particular body needs?

Since protein is so important in maintaining your lean body mass (basically, everything in your body that isn’t fat), the suggested amount of protein you should eat every day depends, in part, on how much lean mass you have. Ideally, you’d get a body composition measurement done (some home bathroom scales even do this for you) which would tell you how much lean body mass you have. Then, you could easily determine amount of protein suggested for you, which is 0.5 – 1.0 grams of protein per pound of lean body mass (or, about 1-2 grams of protein per kilogram of lean body mass).

Of course, not everyone has access to body composition analysis – and if you don’t, you can estimate your protein needs based on your current body weight. It’s not a perfect method – it doesn’t take into account how much muscle mass you have – but it does at least account for differences in body size.

Here’s how to calculate your protein needs

–  Pounds: Multiply your body weight by 0.7

–  Kilograms: Multiply your body weight by 1.5

The number you get is a reasonable target for the amount of protein, in grams, that you should eat each day.

So, a woman who weighs 140lbs (64kg) should aim for about 100grams of protein a day; a 220lb man (110kg) should shoot for at least 150grams of protein.

Amount of protein in typical foods

Now that you’ve got a rough idea of how much protein you should be eating every day, you’ll want to estimate how much you’re actually eating. I find it easiest to estimate the amount of protein in a meal in 25gram “units”, and the amount for snacks in about 10gram units.

Here’s why. Common portions of many protein foods we eat at meals conveniently have about 25grams of protein, and protein snacks tend to fall in the 10gram range, so it makes it easy to keep track. So, if you’re a woman aiming for about 100grams of protein a day, you can easily do that by taking in 25grams (one unit) at each meal and having a couple of protein snacks. If you’re a male aiming for about 150grams a day, you can simply double up your protein units at a couple of meals in order to hit your target.

VIDEO: How to make a STRAWBERRY MINT Herbalife Formula 1 Shake | Herbalife Advice

How to make a STRAWBERRY MINT Herbalife Formula 1 Shake | Herbalife Advice
Most people agree that mint and chocolate make a great flavor combination. But what about mint and strawberries? Our newest Herbalife Formula 1 shake recipe blends a few fresh mint leaves with fresh strawberries in a Wild Berry shake base, for a truly distinctive and delicious flavor!

Registered dietitian Susan Bowerman recently noticed that her peppermint plants were flourishing in her garden and she wanted to use some of it in her morning shake. Already knowing that chopped mint was a wonderful addition to fruit salads, she chose to pair it with the season’s fresh strawberries. But you can try mango and pineapple as well!

Used sparingly, mint acts as a balanced note that doesn’t overpower the berry taste. You might start with just a few rinsed leaves, then taste and add one or more additional leaves if desired.

Strawberry Mint Shake
(Calories: 260)
25 g / 2 scoops Herbalife Formula 1, Wild Berry shake mix
240 ml / 8 ounces lowfat milk or soy milk
Ice cubes
160 g / 1 cup fresh strawberry halves
6-8 fresh mint leaves

In a blender, combine all of the ingredients and blend until shake is smooth. Serve immediately.

The result will have you looking at fresh mint in a whole new way!

Lo yogurt gelato è davvero sano?

Lo yogurt gelato è davvero sano?

Amate lo yogurt gelato? Potrebbe non essere così sano come pensate! Lo yogurt gelato infatti ha molte meno proteine, molti più zuccheri e molti meno batteri benefici dello yogurt normale.
La nutrizionista Herbalife Susan Bowerman ammonisce sul contenuto di zuccheri dello yogurt gelato. Una porzione da 450 gr di yogurt gelato non dietetico, contiene infatti 75gr di zucchero pari a circa 19 cucchiaini. 3/4 delle calorie dello yogurt gelato viene infatti proprio dallo zucchero!
Quando abbiamo voglia di una merenda sana, dolce e rinfrescante, meglio optare allora direttamente per la frutta fresca!
