Katie: Hi there, and welcome to the “Wellness Mama” podcast. I’m Katie from wellnessmama.com and wellnesse.com, that’s Wellness with an E on the top.

We go quite a lot of completely different instructions from there, however very wide-ranging and enjoyable dialog I believe you’ll take pleasure in as a lot as I did. So let’s be part of Clark. Clark, welcome to the podcast.

 

Clark: I’m excited to be right here. Thanks very a lot for having me, Katie.

 

Katie: Properly, I’m excited to talk health with you. I do know that’s your major world. However I’ve a notice in my present notes that you’ve a present for doing soccer trick pictures, and I’ve to listen to a little bit bit extra about that.

 

Clark: Oh, okay, so somebody’s been performing some analysis on me. Yeah, , I don’t even wish to name them trick pictures as a result of it takes quite a lot of talent to do what I do. And it was from a good friend of mine by the identify of Massive Dangerous Brad Johnson, he was a Tremendous Bowl-winning quarterback. And he and I have been simply difficult one another at some point to go off and do a few of the stuff. And it simply caught on.

 

So now I’m hooked on going out to the soccer subject, taking a soccer, and considering up some loopy thought, and attempting to finish it. And, , in all honesty, typically it takes me three days to do a few of these pictures. So it’s quite a lot of enjoyable. It’s a good way for me to meditate, too.

 

Katie: That’s actually cool. I believe you’re my first visitor who has been ready to do this. So new expertise, that’s cool. And I do know that your major world is health and that you simply’ve been in that world for a really very long time. I’d love to listen to just a bit background for anybody who’s not acquainted with you of how you bought into that world and type of what’s your home within the health world.

 

Clark: So it began for me, I consider, after I was within the Marine Corps. I used to…at lunchtime, when most guys would fall asleep, I might go off and do pull-ups and push-ups. And at some point, my commanding officer noticed me doing that and he stated, “Hey, Bartram, we’d like you to assist these two guys get in form. And in the event you don’t, , they’re gonna get kicked out. So I’m relying on you to assist them.” He simply type of dumped these guys on me.

 

And I actually didn’t know what I used to be doing on the time different than simply exercising. , I had no plan, I used to be simply on the market as a result of I loved the bodily a part of being a Marine. And lo and behold, they bought in form. And my commanding officer got here to me and stated, “Hey, nice job, thanks very a lot.” And that was the top of it.

 

However after I bought out, I wanted to get a job. And there was a fitness center, an area fitness center, again then it was known as Household Health Middle, now it’s 24 Hour Health. However I went in and utilized for a job, bought a job as a coach, type of labored my method via the trade, administration, owned a fitness center for some time. After which, , it simply type of grew from there and right here I’m in the present day. That was 1984 after I began within the fitness center enterprise.

 

Katie: Properly, I really feel like particularly proper now that is perhaps a fall down level for lots of people. And health, there’s a lot info and misinformation on the market and a lot conflicting info on the market, I really feel like it may be exhausting to chop via a few of that noise typically. And it may well appear overwhelming for somebody who perhaps didn’t type of all the time exist in that world to get began. So I’d love to begin broad and speak about a few of the largest elements in your thoughts in terms of health and fats loss and sustaining that over the long run.

 

Clark: Yeah. So I wanna enchantment to your listener and simply attain out and let you know, look, don’t overcomplicate this, and don’t examine your self to anyone aside from how you are feeling your finest. Not even your 23-year-old model of your self as a result of the fact is none of us will likely be our 23-year-old self. We simply want to actually be happy with who we’re in the present day. However the issue comes, Katie, such as you stated, with all of this info that’s on the web, all people desires to place themselves because the knowledgeable.

 

I don’t even wish to name myself an knowledgeable. I’m an fanatic. I’m somebody who loves connecting with individuals and somebody who actually loves seeing the potential in individuals come out after they thought it was too late, they have been too previous, they have been too obese, they didn’t have the genetics, or no matter lie we inform ourselves. I really like seeing individuals rise from the ashes just like the Phoenix and actually grow to be one thing.

 

So the very first thing I might suggest, aside from loving your self in the present day, is don’t go researching all the newest best fads as a result of they’re all late and nice fads. There’s reality to quite a lot of what you’re being taught, however there’s quite a lot of advertising and marketing wrapped round what you’re being taught. And it comes right down to one thing so primary, energy in versus energy out, that’s the backside line. Don’t get caught up in keto, and in Fritos, and no matter. Simply just be sure you’re transferring extra in the present day than you probably did yesterday and also you’re being aware about what it’s that you simply’re placing in your physique.

 

And I do know individuals are saying, “Clark, if it was that simple, I wouldn’t be within the place I’m in in the present day.” Properly, it’s that simple. And also you don’t must be within the place you’re in in the present day in the event you’re simply very conscious of it. So I begin by writing issues down. Write down every part you eat in the present day and don’t make it an ideal day, make it an actual day. So now you’ve got a sensible understanding of what it’s that you simply’re doing, after which that’s the place we begin.

 

Katie: Yeah, so many instructions we are able to go from there. However I really like that time you introduced up about not being an knowledgeable, simply being an fanatic. And I believe…what I’ve stated earlier than is the one knowledgeable about your well being is you. And I inform individuals on a regular basis, you might be your individual major well being care supplier, you can’t outsource that. You possibly can completely work with companions that will help you and that’s…I completely suggest that. However on the finish of the day, you’re the solely one who has a vested curiosity, and also you’re additionally the one one who can change it.

 

So be taught from individuals. I’m a giant believer, there’s one thing we are able to be taught from each single individual, expertise, and in the event you can keep that curiosity, however on the finish of the day, that’s on you. I additionally love that you simply introduced up genetics as a result of I believe lots of people use this as a scapegoat and say, like, “Oh, nicely, I simply don’t have good genetics, and so I’m by no means gonna be this match. Or I might by no means try this as a result of I don’t have good genetics.” And I’ve challenged myself on that currently and proved my very own self incorrect. However I might love your tackle the genetics and the way a lot genetics come into play for well being.

 

Clark: Properly, it’s actually fascinating as a result of I’ve a good friend, for instance, and he has 4 children. And two of them, we might classify in our tradition, and I’m not saying that is simply the best way we classify individuals, as obese. Two are heavier, and two are very skinny. So I take a look at these children, all from the identical gene pool, who two are just like the dad and two are just like the mother because it pertains to aesthetics and physique construction.

 

So I sit there and I scratch my head and I’m like, “Why is that this? How does this occur that folks come from the identical gene pool, however have a distinct predisposition to stroll round at a sure weight, or a sure potential because it pertains to how they may look?” So I don’t even have the reply to that query. However the reply to me isn’t specializing in that, not worrying about what my sister seems like, or what the genetics are, because it pertains to how I really feel about myself. As a result of each single one among us is a novel particular person, and each single one among us has worth that we convey to this world.

 

And we frequently overlook that worth as a result of we’re so centered on the aesthetic half, the surface half, we’re involved with being heavier than we need to be or no matter. Now, I’m saying, , positively concentrate on that if it’s one thing that bothers you, however I wouldn’t get too caught up within the genetics half as a result of there’s nothing that you are able to do about it, you’ve got your dad and mom, that’s the method that it’s. Nothing goes to alter, besides the best way that you simply body it in your day-to-day method to the way you’re going to dwell your life.

 

However sadly, Katie, lots of people will throw within the towel and say, “That is simply the best way I’m, and that’s all there may be to it, so I’m simply gonna dwell my life.” However we might be more healthy. And it doesn’t all the time have to manifest in a physique that will recommend we’re wholesome. what I’m saying? Like our western tradition has pinpointed those that look a sure method because the measure of well being when that’s not essentially a real assertion.

 

I’ve bought an incredible story a few girl and it’s price sharing right here. I had a TV present known as “American Well being and Health.” And on that TV present, I had six fashions that labored with me on the present. Now, these girls have been what we might discuss with in our tradition as excellent, proper? That they had the physique, that they had the hair, that they had the seems, that they had all of that, however their angle wasn’t matching what they appeared like.

 

I am going into the wardrobe division and on the right-hand facet of the trailer are these six ladies attempting on wardrobe for the subsequent phase that we’re gonna do. After which down on the left-hand facet was our wardrobe guide. She stood about 4 toes 11 inches tall, she was in all probability 200 kilos. She was as large as she was tall, , she was a heavier woman, fully the other of the ladies on this finish.

 

So I stroll in, and I’m listening to the dialog of those excellent ladies, “Oh, this makes my butt look fats, oh, my gosh,” simply complaining. And I used to be like, “Ooh, ooh.” So I smelled meals on the opposite finish. So I am going right down to the opposite finish, her identify was Sally, and he or she was cooking meals. And I’m main to a degree right here and I would like everybody to listen to this and put this in your coronary heart after I say it.

 

She’s cooking the meals. And I’m not a tall man, proper, I’m 5’8, however I’m trying down at her, and he or she’s simply this little girl. And he or she’s cooking this meals. It was hen and pink peppers and inexperienced peppers and yellow. It was a gorgeous lunch. And I stated, “Wow, that appears nice.” And he or she checked out me…and there’s a scripture within the Bible, it says, “The eyes are the window to the soul.” She appeared straight into my eyes, into my soul, she stated, “Clark, that is the physique that God gave me and I’m gonna dwell in it wholesome.” I used to be like, “Sure, that’s the perfect assertion I’ve ever heard from a human in my life.”

 

Now, we’ve these those that the world would take a look at as like, “Oh, my gosh, I want I seem like her.” And this lady who had the angle of, “That is who I’m. I’ve accepted who I’m. I really like who I’m. However I’m gonna deal with who I’m wholesome no matter what anybody else may take into consideration how I look.”

 

Katie: I really like that. I believe you’re proper. A lot of it goes again to mindset. And I’ve a 13-year-old daughter who…all my children have ended up in numerous athletic pursuits simply because they adore it, and to them, it’s play. However I really like watching her journey and the way completely different it’s from me as a 13-year-old, taking a look at my physique at that time in my life very similar to these fashions and discovering all of the issues incorrect with it and being so self-critical as a result of the world was telling me to look a sure method. And I used to be solely evaluating myself to that.

 

After which I see my daughter, who’s her physique for her is a efficiency software, and to her, it’s about, “What can my physique do? And that is such a cool machine that I can get to do all these cool issues.” And he or she’s not in that mindset of being self-critical as a result of her physique to her is that this wonderful option to specific all these athletic endeavors and to have enjoyable, and it’s about how she feels in her physique. And I believe that mindset shift is such an vital key that usually will get neglected, to your level.

 

And I believe I observed that in my very own life with my very own well being transitions of after I was internally asking myself the questions like, “Oh, nicely, why can’t I drop some weight? Why is it so exhausting to work out?” My unconscious was answering these questions as a result of that’s what I used to be asking. And it was like, “Oh, as a result of you’ve got thyroid illness. Oh, since you had six children.” And after I modified my language, and the way I associated to myself to, “Why is that this a lot enjoyable? And the way can I get so sturdy? And all these items,” my unconscious began engaged on these questions.

 

And I believe changing into conscious of that may be such a profound shift as a result of it’s simpler and extra enjoyable to work out and to get stronger in a physique that you simply admire and love than a physique that you’re essential towards. And your physique responds a lot in a different way. I additionally love that you simply introduced up the energy in, energy out as a result of I really feel like this can be a controversial level at occasions. And we actually have the Keto world and quite a lot of different individuals making all these claims that will be considerably opposite to that. I’m curious, do you take a look at macros in any respect?

 

For example, one development I’ve observed is quite a lot of ladies really appear to be under-eating and over depriving and never really getting sufficient primary vitamins. Much more so perhaps they’re overeating and getting too many energy, after which they’re moving into type of like metabolic points from, true, like precise under-eating. However do you take a look at macros in any respect? Is there another granularity there, or do you simply take a look at energy?

 

Clark: I don’t even take a look at energy or macros personally, what I do is I’m very instinctive. And I used to be having this dialog yesterday with a coach on the fitness center. He stated, “, you’ve bought so a few years of doing this, you actually know your physique. I watch your exercises, I don’t see you following any set patterns or routines.” And I believe these patterns and routines can typically be the issue that we find yourself operating into. So in the event you don’t rely your macros that day, in the event you don’t rely your energy, in the event you don’t weigh your meals, you then’re like, “Oh, I can’t do that,” so that you throw within the towel. And that’s not the best way to do it.

 

…such as you stated earlier, Katie, we all know higher than anybody what is important. And we, on some degree, even when we don’t have any training in diet or health or any of that, innately, we all know after we’re doing one thing incorrect to our physique as a result of our physique is gonna reply to us in a method that’s going to inform us, “Look, ooh, that wasn’t good to eat a complete bag of chips or have all of that sugar,” or a few of these issues that we all know are empty energy and issues that aren’t going to learn us in the long term.

 

So I don’t suggest that folks rely energy or do any of that type of factor. , an incredible measuring software is that this image on my hand right here is the measuring software, and I’m certain you’ve seen this earlier than. The palm of your hand can be the quantity of protein, that’s one macro, proper? So the palm of your hand, the thickness, that’d be hen, fish, steak, turkey, something that’s protein. A clenched fist can be the dimensions of your carbohydrates, potato, rice, and all of that type of factor. After which tip of your thumb can be the quantity of fats you’d eat, butter, mayonnaise, that type of factor.

 

So, all of our arms are gonna be completely different sizes, and that will decide the correct quantity of meals for the person. So we are able to now take a look at it on the plate. So if we go to a restaurant and the plate is that this large, and we put our hand up and the protein is that large, we might get three meals from that. So then a little bit little bit of self-discipline does must be exercised at that time as a result of in the event you can eat all of that, otherwise you’ve been taught, proper. There’s a brand new app that teaches us the psychology behind why we eat and offers it names.

 

So if we’re a guilt eater as a result of some child is ravenous in Africa, and we have to clear our plate, we have to reconcile that, and that goes again to the mindset half, and perceive that that’s not the right option to go. After we have been being raised, our dad and mom did the incorrect factor for us in that regard. And I really like…I wanna return to what you stated about your daughter as regards to all people.

 

All people’s physique is a efficiency software. All of us carry out in a sure method. Each individual on this planet is an athlete, you might be an athlete, whether or not you kick a soccer factor or no matter you do. When you’re vacuuming the ground holding a child on the similar time, that’s athletic. That’s not a simple factor to do. However you’ve grow to be so accustomed to doing that as a result of that’s your day-to-day life. You’re taking that as a right and you’d by no means settle for me saying, you might be an athlete, you do very athletic stuff. You carry a field and also you’re on one leg and also you’re pushing it up. These are athletic issues.

 

So your physique is a efficiency software, and it’s worthwhile to deal with it as such. You’re performing one thing each single day. We simply give these athletes who receives a commission hundreds of thousands of {dollars} to throw balls across the title, when each one among us is that individual.

 

Katie: I really like that you simply introduced that up. I do know, like, it took me a very long time to really be snug with utilizing that time period for myself, regardless that now I’m doing fairly a little bit of issues that will be historically thought-about athletic. However I used to assume like, “Oh, I’m not an athlete, I can’t try this.” And that was a mindset shift I needed to face.

 

And likewise, to your level, I believe you’re proper, like, after we get these restrictive diets which might be keto, or like no fats, or no matter it might be, like, to me, that’s not the optimum long-term model of well being. My objective is to be metabolically versatile to have my physique be capable to adapt to no matter I throw at it, to have the ability to do any exercise I wanna do. And sometimes, to eat the meals I wanna eat and never freak out about it.

 

To me, it’s not the image of well being if, “Oh, I might be completely wholesome on this very slim vary so long as I’m consuming completely no carbs, and I’m taking all these loopy dietary supplements.” That’s not metabolic flexibility, that’s actually tightly managed regiment, and the physique is so adaptable.

 

I do know there’s additionally quite a lot of debate in terms of health and well being, how a lot of that’s diet-based, and the way a lot of that’s figuring out within the health facet? And I’ve heard it stated, , abs are made within the kitchen. I don’t know if that’s true. I’d love to listen to your tackle that. However how a lot of it goes again to what we eat versus how a lot figuring out we’re doing?

 

Clark: Properly, let me first begin together with your assertion in regards to the sustainability half. You didn’t say that, however that’s what got here to my thoughts. Any of those diets, any of those applications, something that we discover is the most recent best, you need to ask your self, “Is that this sustainable? Can I dwell this fashion?” As a result of it doesn’t matter in the event you kill your self for six weeks, and also you restrict the quantity of carbohydrates you’re taking in or no matter self-discipline you’ve got added to your life.

 

If it’s not sustainable, it’s actually in my view, not price doing as a result of we’ve heard so many individuals gaining the load again after they misplaced it with these actually hardcore diets. So with respect to abs are made within the kitchen, I can’t disagree with that. However there’s an announcement that they are saying you possibly can’t outwork a nasty food plan. Certain you possibly can. However who desires to? Who desires to work that onerous? I actually don’t.

 

So we actually want to have a look at it in a method that’s sensible, and sustainable. So what I educate the those that I work with are 5 life-style ideas. And I don’t assume that diet is the only most vital issue. You will have already touched on this, I’ve touched on this.

 

However the 5 life-style ideas that I educate are on this particular order, mindset, meals, motion, group, and supplementation, in that order. You can’t put meals in entrance of mindset as a result of, in case your thoughts isn’t set, in the event you’re not ready, in the event you’re not able to go, “Okay, this man stated, it’s energy in versus energy out, I gotta do that.” So that you’re setting your thoughts with a view to do the self-discipline that it requires to enter the kitchen and eat the fitting meals and denying your self a few of these pleasures that we’ve in our life.

 

After which motion being the third one. So if we’ve the meals and the motion collectively, a great way to get right into a calorie deficit is that this. If it’s worthwhile to get 500 energy out of your food plan, don’t take all of it out of your meals, take 250 out of your meals and add 250 in train or motion. Now we’ve bought a 500 whole, it is sensible, proper? So we’re eliminating 250. Now, in the event you’ve written down what you’re consuming, the place you will get 250 energy out.

 

You look and also you’re like, “Yeah, okay, I ate a bag of chips whereas I used to be watching TV, all I gotta do is eliminate that or lower that in half even.” So now you’re reducing the caloric consumption. What can I do to extend? I might go 5 extra minutes on the treadmill, or I might take a stroll, or I might do leaping jacks.

 

I’ve a program known as 3 Strikes, 3 Minutes that’s blowing up on TikTok. Individuals are amazed that in three minutes, you possibly can change the best way you exist on this planet, three minutes a day. There’s 168 hours in every week, there’s 1440 minutes in a day. I’m telling you, in three minutes a day, you possibly can change the best way you exist on this planet. I don’t care what anybody says. And other people argue with me on TikTok all day lengthy. They’re too sensible for themselves. They assume they’ve outsmarted the human physique, and that tells me how silly they’re.

 

Katie: I admire a lot the order you’ve got on these. I believe 100% in alignment that mindset is the important thing. And I’ve realized, like, you possibly can’t punish your self into well being in the event you’re coming from that mindset. Your hormones will finally win over these extremely restrictive fats diets as a result of, in the event you over limit for too lengthy, your hormones are stronger than your willpower, and in the event you’re not really nourishing your physique with entire meals from a spot of affection, you finally will hit that wall.

 

And to your level, you possibly can’t…I suppose you’re proper, you could possibly outwork a nasty food plan. We’ve seen the movies of Michael Phelps when he was within the peak of his coaching, consuming 12,000 energy a day of pizza and ice cream. None of us wanna go swim for eight hours a day in chilly water to do this. And in order that brings me to the purpose of what’s perhaps a few of the minimal efficient doses? Particularly lots of people listening are busy mothers, and I believe that’s one impediment, no less than excuse individuals give is, “I don’t have time to work out.” So what are a few of these…I imply, three minutes is nice. However what are a few of these minimal efficient doses of ways in which we are able to incorporate that motion piece?

 

Clark: Properly, if we’re intentional about our motion…so this can be a lot of what I’ll…the phrases that I’ll use after I’m doing my TikTok movies and displaying some staple items. For instance, I’m sitting right here, and we all the time rise up with out even excited about it as a result of our unconscious handles that a part of us. But when we go from the unconscious to the aware, and understand, “I’m standing up, I’m utilizing muscle groups in my legs, I’m utilizing muscle groups in my core, I’m utilizing steadiness to do that.”

 

So if I let you know, sit down and rise up 10 occasions with intention, understanding, “My legs are working proper now, I’m squeezing my glutes, I’m sitting again down, my eyes are straight into the horizon, I’m balancing,” now, that motion that we do each single day for our complete life, by no means excited about it as a result of the unconscious is doing it, we make it aware, now it turns into train. So that you’re not doing something completely different however altering the best way you’re excited about what you’re already doing.

 

It’s like respiratory, Katie, it’s the identical factor. We by no means consciously breathe as a result of our unconscious handles it from the time we’re…the very first thing we do after we’re born, and the very last thing we do earlier than we depart this Earth is, take a breath. And each day in between, we by no means want to consider it. However after we give it some thought, then it turns into one thing that may change our state. Throwing again to Tony Robbins, immediately, by… (breathe)

 

I promise, if everybody proper now sits there and takes three deep breaths consciously and thinks about it, you’ll change the best way you are feeling immediately. And this isn’t me developing with this, that is reality, that is actual, that is sincere, and that is easy.

 

Katie: Yeah, and it’s such an incredible metric. And to your level, like, respiratory is the factor all of us do all day lengthy, you possibly can go a really brief time with out respiratory earlier than you die. In order that’s an vital issue we frequently ignore, however within the type of the triage thought, in the event you enhance your respiratory, that’s one thing you’re doing on a regular basis, that’s your oxygen, that’s every part associated to your physique.

 

After which I might say, like, additionally you possibly can go a shorter time with out water than with out meals. So hydration is a vital key that usually doesn’t get talked about sufficient. We sleep for a 3rd of our lives. Sleep is a vital factor that we frequently ignore, and we wanna hyper-focus on meals or like stylish dietary supplements when there’s all these different levers which might be enormous so far as making precise lasting, to your level, sustainable modifications.

 

I believe one other factor that usually will get talked about within the health group is the variations between women and men. And I see quite a lot of ladies who’re afraid to work out an excessive amount of, or carry heavy, or do sure issues as a result of they’re afraid they’re gonna get cumbersome. So I might love so that you can communicate to the variations between women and men. And perhaps a few of the particular actions that girls can incorporate that aren’t gonna ship them into, and I do know this can be a fallacy, however bodybuilder territory.

 

Clark: Properly, you understand it’s a fallacy, however the majority of individuals don’t understand it’s a fallacy as a result of, if it was simple to get, , jacked as we name it on this trade, all people can be doing it with respect to all the individuals who go to the fitness center as a result of that’s the top objective.

 

However the actuality, the distinction between women and men is males have 12 to fifteen occasions the quantity of testosterone flowing via their physique while you had talked about hormones. , we’ve 12 to fifteen occasions extra testosterone flowing via our physique than ladies do on a median. So, that in and of itself, it lends itself to males being extra muscular than ladies being muscular.

 

However ladies want that testosterone no in a different way than males want the estrogen. And that’s one other factor that, , quite a lot of guys will assume, “Properly, I don’t want any estrogen.” Sure, you do. You simply want the fitting steadiness and the fitting proportion. And that’s what occurs as we age is oftentimes, not particularly as a result of growing older course of, however because of all types of things like stress being the principle one, these hormones get out of steadiness, after which we get into bother.

 

After which, to your level a minute in the past, we soar from one excessive to a different, overlooking all the small steps that we might do in between to treatment and repair that state of affairs alongside the best way. So a person, for instance, if he has low testosterone, he instantly desires to run to the clinic, get a shot, however he overlooks mindset, meals, motion, group, and supplementation. Your human physique can change your hormonal, not blueprint, however actuality in the meanwhile by altering these 5 ideas and enhancing on them.

 

So, ladies want resistance coaching as a lot as males want resistance coaching. And I might say, even to a level, a little bit bit extra due to bone mass density points which might be extra prevalent to ladies than they’re to males, particularly within the growing older course of. And the one option to deal with that’s via resistance coaching.

 

Now, that is one thing else I educate on TikTok as a result of we relate resistance coaching to large weights. Something that’s heavier than air, look, my telephone proper right here, that is resistance. If I curl it, I’m now weightlifting, I’m bodybuilding, I’m performance-enhancing as a result of I’m lifting one thing that’s heavier than air. It may very well be a child, it may very well be a pet, it may very well be a weight, it may very well be a band, it may very well be something. I carry books in right here.

 

Matter of reality, somebody commented on my TikTok put up the opposite day. I grabbed this candle proper right here out of my workplace, and I did tricep kickbacks like this. And the girl stated, “Oh, my God, I did that candle factor, and again of my arms harm.” I’m like, “Sure, let’s go.” , and this can be a beautiful smelling candle, it’s not intimidating, proper? Yeah, and I burn candles, I’m a person, let’s go.

 

Katie: Properly, I’m glad you introduced up the health altering as we age, too, as a result of that’s one other excuse that I usually hear from individuals, or that, like, it modifications after motherhood and girls really feel like they will’t do the issues that they used to do earlier than. And positively, I do know hormones do change as we age.

 

However to your level, I really feel like issues like resistance coaching get extra vital as we age, not much less vital. And people are sometimes those individuals cease doing. So what are some issues to pay attention to, perhaps within the completely different many years of life, for sustaining health and ensuring we’re hitting these longevity elements in terms of health?

 

Clark: Properly, individuals all the time ask me, “Clark, what’s the important thing to staying younger? You appear so younger, you appear so very important and full life and all of that.” It’s utilizing your physique to the extent to which it’s succesful, proper? So that you won’t be as succesful as you have been at 23. No one is. Tom Brady simply retired, he’s not a man who might play at a excessive degree until he was 50-years-old. He might have nonetheless saved doing it.

 

However what I’m saying is, all of us have that very same capacity to carry out at a degree that different individuals would take a look at us and go, “Aren’t you 58? Must you actually be on the market doing what you’re doing?” Completely, I must be out right here doing what I’m doing as a result of I nonetheless have a physique that’s succesful, offered I’m working inside my skills, not residing in my 18-year-old physique that, , performed rugby as a Marine touring all around the world. I can’t try this anymore at that degree.

 

However that doesn’t imply that I can’t do issues that assist keep a youthful existence. And sitting on the sofa in comparison with being out and being energetic, whether or not it’s strolling or kicking a soccer and taking part in, or dancing, or leaping rope, the 2 variations are excessive.

 

And once more, our tradition, we dwell in these two extremes. Like, “I’m simply gonna lay on the sofa and watch TV,” what I imply? No, man, there’s motion you can also make in a path to begin enhancing. And right here’s what I’ll say, the second…individuals all the time ask me, “How shortly can I get outcomes?” And I say, “Immediately, immediately.” The minute you rise up and sit down consciously and give it some thought, the second you breathe consciously and give it some thought, every part begins to alter immediately.

 

The issue is we search for it within the mirror, we await it in our abs, we wanna see it like now. That’s not the best way to measure it as a result of it’s like meals. Meals is probably the most highly effective drug on planet Earth. Folks don’t understand this. “Clark, meals isn’t a drug.” Oh, sure, it’s. Sure, it’s. It causes a chemical and hormonal response in your physique.

 

What do medication do? They trigger a chemical and hormonal response in your physique. So meals is the factor that you simply do most constantly, so it’s worthwhile to take a look at it in such a method like, “What is that this going to trigger in my physique the minute I eat it immediately?” You bought me fired up now.

 

Katie: I prefer it. I’ve talked about that in terms of meals high quality as nicely is like we frequently low cost meals high quality and we’ll eat actually crappy meals, however then we’ll take one capsule of acetaminophen and anticipate it to resolve all of our ache signs. And we don’t acknowledge the identical quantity of like chemical compounds added to meals might even have. And to not get orthorexic or should be excessive, however taking note of meals high quality issues.

 

Such as you stated, meals is chemistry, our our bodies are chemistry labs. And we’ve quite a lot of levers we are able to pull there that make a giant distinction and that we do see an impression in our vitality ranges in our sleep after we begin making these modifications.

 

Additionally, to circle again to what you stated, I can attest now firsthand that you don’t as a lady particularly unintentionally get cumbersome by lifting heavyweights. The truth is, it tends to go the opposite method. Like, the heavier I carry, I’m tending to get smaller. Such as you don’t do one exercise and get up the subsequent day with enormous arms, that doesn’t occur, particularly for ladies.

 

And I additionally assume to your level, make it enjoyable, do the little issues. My children are my best trainer on this, in that they work out all day lengthy, and so they do not know they’re exercising. They’re climbing timber, they’re doing cartwheels, they’re simply transferring round doing child actions, they might by no means name that train, is tremendous enjoyable to them. And we might be taught a lot from that.

 

One factor I’ve discovered in my life is we expect we form our surroundings. And that’s true to a point. However our surroundings additionally very a lot shapes our physique. And so something I can put in a method in our home that encourages us to maneuver or to have higher posture, or no matter it’s, that helps the surroundings form us in a optimistic method.

 

So we’ve a climbing cling board in our kitchen, in order the children stroll via the archway, they will simply cling for a short while. Or we’ve a gymnastics monitor down our hallway. So we don’t stroll down the hallway, we cartwheel or soar or roll. However it’s getting these actions in and it’s simply enjoyable, it doesn’t really feel like train in any respect. We even for some time had a rebounder as a substitute of a espresso desk in our front room, so if children are watching TV, they’re bouncing the entire time. I really feel like little modifications like that make it enjoyable.

 

And youngsters are so nice at that innately. And adults, we typically lose it and we time period it figuring out after which we resist it, and it’s this entire factor. And I believe that additionally circles again to the mindset piece. I really like that that’s a very powerful one for you. I might love to listen to any ideas you’ve got for facilitating these mindset shifts. I’ve seen firsthand, in the event you get that piece discovered, all the opposite ones get a lot simpler. However that may be the powerful one in the event you’re caught in perhaps a damaging cycle together with your mindset.

 

Clark: So that you stated the right phrase, caught in a damaging cycle together with your mindset, most of us are. And it’s as a result of we’ve conditioned responses to every part. We have now conditioned ways in which we function our life. Essentially the most conditioned method for most individuals is after we get up within the morning, what we do. And, , we hear about morning routines, it appears overemphasized today, however it’s overemphasized as a result of it’s in all probability a very powerful half.

 

The way you bookend your day, in my view, not simply within the morning, however within the night as nicely, is vitally vital to how we dwell in between these two moments. It’s no completely different than the respiratory piece, proper? We take a breath, and growth, after which all of that in-between. So most individuals within the morning, sadly, get up and they’re conditioned to activate the TV and the information pops on. And within the background, even when they’re not sitting there and paying consideration, they’re getting fed all of this damaging stuff. Then they go proper to their handheld machine and so they begin taking a look at textual content messages and messages and damaging issues. As a result of, let’s all face it, the vast majority of what we’re consuming on a day-to-day foundation, if we’re not aware about will probably be damaging. I don’t know why. It’s simply the world that we dwell in.

 

After which from there, we get caught up in one thing else, perhaps we learn the newspaper. So what I’m saying is, don’t try this. Don’t activate the TV. When you do, placed on a YouTube video that’s 10-minute mindset shift within the morning. Like I hearken to these on a regular basis, there’s a lot nice content material. There are creators that lower collectively these lovely, simply melodies of various individuals talking, that simply fill you up, man.

 

I’m right here to say that it takes much less of that than it does of the damaging stuff to get you transferring in a greater path. Like I solely want this a lot positivity. I want one individual to return and pat me on the again after which edify me and construct me up. I’m like, “Let’s go.” So, the reward for doing that will likely be evident in your life rather a lot prior to the draining that’s simply continually occurring. That’s how superior you might be as a human.

 

So then, , you undergo your day and attempt to take heed to your feelings. Like I all the time inform individuals, be on the balcony. And also you’re sitting there and also you’re observing your self. You’re not in your feelings, you’re observing the way you react and reply and do your life.

 

After which while you go to mattress at evening, I’ve one thing so easy and so foolish. I’ve bought a pillowcase that’s bought all types of optimistic phrases on it. And I’ll take a look at that pillowcase at evening, and I’ll learn it, magnificence, concord, light-hearted, carefree, love, happiness, pleasure, peace, calm, energetic, all of these items on my pillowcase. And I take a look at it.

 

My spouse laughed at me the opposite evening. She’s like, “Oh, that’s so cute.” And I’m like, “I wanna dream peacefully tonight. I wanna have evening’s sleep.” So then, growth, then I lay my head on my pillow and off I am going. Look, I’m not excellent. I’m not saying I do that each day. But when we do it greater than we don’t, then we’re gonna be higher off in the long term.

 

Katie: A few occasions after I’ve been requested, “What’s the largest factor you are able to do in your well being?” I’ll inform individuals, cease taking note of the information as a result of, you’re proper, that cycle of worry and simply overwhelm and it’s in every single place. And as social animals, this can be a nice segue into group, we’re designed to concentrate to that as a result of we’re meant to dwell in group. It’s simply we weren’t meant to concentrate to that on a worldwide scale. We have been meant to concentrate to that in a group the place we might have an effect on a change and assist the individuals round us. And we’re wired for that in order that we will help individuals. And we are able to’t assist the issues all around the world.

 

So I’m large on, shift your mindset to concentrate on the a part of the world that you simply really can have an effect on a change in. And such as you stated, concentrate on the optimistic, cease watching the damaging all day lengthy, steadiness that out. And I believe that ties into the concept of group, which I 100% agree with you. In researching “Blue Zones,” I used to be like, “I believe individuals are really lacking the purpose.” They wanna speak in regards to the meals, or they drink one glass of wine a day, or they do all these items. Just like the commonality all of them have is robust group.

 

Yeah, they may be consuming an ideal Mediterranean food plan and ingesting a glass of pink wine. However they walked there with their good friend, and so they’re having a gradual dinner with individuals they love. And perhaps that’s the precise issue that’s so vital for longevity, is these relationships in that group. So to that time, what are some ideas you give individuals on constructing that group piece?

 

Clark: Properly, I lived in a blue zone for a yr in Okinawa, Japan, and I dwell an hour away from one other blue zone, Yorba Linda or no matter it’s proper up right here, simply north of us. And so they’re small communities, that’s the important thing. So I’ve a really giant group of males that grows each single day. And what I require these males do is get into what we refer as huddles. And so they’re smaller teams inside the bigger group as a result of, in the event you develop a small group into a big group, then it simply turns into this large place the place individuals get misplaced once more.

 

I used to be on an plane provider after I was a Marine for a brief little stint. It’s a metropolis, it’s a big metropolis, you assume since you’re on a ship, you’re gonna know all people. You would do a 20-year tour on an plane provider and never meet each individual on that ship. And also you’re on a ship in the course of an ocean, you’d assume that that will be the case, it’s not. We gotta get away into smaller communities. So my huddles are 11 males. And as soon as these males begin to rise as much as a spot of management, I require that they break off and begin a brand new huddle for brand spanking new guys coming in who’re afraid, embarrassed, shy, timid, don’t know what to do, don’t know what to anticipate, as a result of that’s the nature of human beings.

 

We enter into communities, the bigger ones, fearful, just like the fitness center is the largest one. The edge of the fitness center is the toughest place for individuals to crossover, particularly ladies, particularly ladies who assume they’re obese or assume they don’t seem like the 23-year-old hottie within the fitness center. Look, man, I hear this each single day.

 

However what I’m right here to let you know is there are communities that may assist you, there are communities that may carry you up, there are communities that won’t speak damaging, won’t settle for any of the stuff that we see within the large communities. As a result of even probably the most…the Fb group with the perfect intentions if left un, like, managed will flip right into a damaging surroundings, simply by nature of human beings being human beings, interval. Somebody will pop in with one thing that offends anyone, harm somebody’s emotions, isn’t meant to be talked about. We gotta management that type of factor, man. I’m a stickler on in my group.

 

Katie: That’s superior. Yeah, I believe small teams are the place it’s at, too. As people, I believe we exist in greater teams, however that core small group…such as you hear all these quotes from all of the self-help individuals about, you’re the sum of the individuals you spend probably the most time with. And that’s additionally, in fact, our households. However then the teams that we domesticate round that that may assist us transfer towards optimistic habits.

I believe there are such a lot of different instructions, we might nonetheless go right here. However I might love to listen to simply any perhaps like 80/20 prime ideas that you simply give to people who find themselves perhaps attempting to make these mindset shifts however overwhelmed and simply getting began. What are these varieties of massive levers they will pull that make a giant distinction?

 

Clark: So one factor I inform my guys after they come into my group…and once more, I’m very exhausting on these males after they are available in as a result of I perceive how exhausting it’s to push a human out of those habits and these behaviors which have been conditioned in us from dad and mom and coaches and academics and all of those various things.

 

A mentor of mine informed me years in the past, he stated, “Clark, you’re solely dedicated to what you confess.” So when males come into my group, I require they shoot a video and say, “Hello. My identify is Clark Bartram. I’m from San Diego, California. I joined this group as a result of I generally tend to surrender on issues simple. And the best way you possibly can assist me is by ensuring that I’m right here constantly. And in the event you see me disappear, please come and discover me as a result of I actually need to lose 20 kilos.”

 

Now you’re dedicated to the confession of what it’s that you simply stated. When you don’t ever inform anyone what you wanna try this it’s simple to stop, in the event you don’t put your self on the market in a method that’s like, “Oh, my gosh, now I gotta do that…” I bear in mind the primary time I ever competed in a bodybuilding contest. I didn’t wanna stand up in entrance of a bunch of individuals in little Speedo trunks. That wasn’t what I used to be used to doing. I used to be a shy child.

 

However somebody satisfied me, and I knew shortly that if I didn’t enter that contest and inform all people I used to be doing it primarily based upon my life previously, I used to be gonna stop. I used to be simply gonna stroll away. However as a result of I informed all people, now everybody’s saying, “Hey, when is your present? How for much longer you bought? Can I see the way you look?” Now, all of that optimistic vitality coming again to me type of helped me take that one subsequent step.

 

And typically that’s all we’d like is that one subsequent step. Oprah says this, “What’s your subsequent finest transfer?” That’s what individuals have to ask themselves proper now, what’s your subsequent finest transfer? What do it’s worthwhile to do? Do it’s worthwhile to go analysis a food plan and get on one thing that’s not sustainable? Or do it’s worthwhile to simply write down every part you’re consuming in the present day and remember?

 

There are research at Harvard that show, in the event you try this, you then’re going to extend your probabilities of success. I don’t know. I believe it’s 50 or 100 fold. I don’t know, it’s one thing. Harvard stated it, not me. However write it down.

 

What’s the subsequent finest transfer, ? I believe writing it down and being conscious, easy issues. Don’t overcomplicate this. Simply get up in the present day, don’t watch the information, eat meal, transfer a little bit bit, smile, take a breath, be aware, get round like-minded individuals, and issues will change, man, assured.

 

Katie: And that makes me curious as a result of I really feel like we’ve dispelled fairly a number of of those already on this episode. But when there are another areas in terms of this that folks both don’t know or misunderstand. As a result of I believe, sadly, the health world, there’s a lot, like we talked about at first, misinformation and competing info. Every other belongings you would contact on as issues which might be simply usually misunderstood?

 

Clark: Properly, watch out of like listening and believing every part. I’ve been lucky in my profession to be round some actually, actually, actually sensible individuals who perceive the science of getting individuals’s consideration in an effort to promote them one thing. And it’s not all the time what you assume it’s primarily based upon what you’re being triggered by to get you to reply to one thing. And I do know that’s type of convoluted sounding.

 

However the level is, don’t all the time consider what you see on the market within the web house. Not all people is on the market together with your finest curiosity in thoughts. Individuals are motivated by cash quite a lot of occasions. I’m not saying all people within the health house is. However what I’m saying is there are some who’re. And you must actually hearken to your intestine.

 

Now, we’re speaking to primarily ladies right here, and girls have instinct higher than males do. Girls have a intestine that’s responding. Such as you’re both believing me proper now, otherwise you’re not. You’re both resonating with me proper now, otherwise you’re not. You’re both saying, “Wow, this man’s on to one thing. Honey, come pay attention, you may like this man, or this man is a jerk. This man is simply…” in your intestine what that’s. I’m simply saying comply with that, and hearken to that, and concentrate on what’s on the market as a result of we’re not missing people who find themselves on the market representing themselves in ways in which isn’t usually the reality.

 

I’ll say this one little analogy right here, and also you may bear in mind this and the people who find themselves a little bit bit older will. There was a “Brady Bunch” episode, the place Greg Brady was being recruited by this expertise scout, this lady, and a person, to be the lead singer in a band. And the one requirement was that he match the jacket. The individual that they wished to go this band didn’t want any expertise, didn’t want something. All he wanted to do was be a measurement 38 giant or no matter that jacket was as a result of it was all rhinestone down. So that they put it on Greg Brady, and it match him, and he thought he was this star however was simply the jacket.

 

There are lots of people on this trade who match the jacket, , they’re well-spoken, they appear good, now, all of this the opposite factor, however of their coronary heart, they don’t have a need to actually, actually assist individuals. And I believe that’s what separates me from lots of people that you simply may see on the web. And I’m not saying it’s all people. However I’m saying I actually am on this for the fitting causes. And I wanna assist individuals out. And also you’re the identical method, Katie, I imply, I really feel like I’m the male model of you.

 

Katie: And that’s true in so many areas of life is that it goes again to that core of wanting to assist individuals and I believe that folks…to your level, instinct exhibits that. And that you simply’re in a position to like bond with individuals otherwise when it comes from that place of affection and willingness to assist and never judgment or simply desirous to generate income. As a result of actually, there are such a lot of methods to only generate income on the market, however for me, no less than the achievement comes from really serving to create a optimistic change.

 

And that was my motivation in beginning “Wellness Mama” in any respect was studying that our children’ technology is gonna have a shorter life expectancy than we’re for the primary time in two centuries. And to me, that’s not ok. We deserve to alter that statistic for the sake of our children. Additionally, the one factor we haven’t touched on but is dietary supplements, and I do know that’s the top of your checklist. However I might love to listen to any ideas you’ve got, perhaps even belongings you take personally, or the way you assist individuals work out what they need to be taking.

 

Clark: So, I believe we should always all perceive that we’re in all probability malnourished in some nutrient that we’d like due to the comfort meals which might be surrounding us, and how briskly we’re residing our lives. So until we’re actually sitting down and being very aware about what we’re consuming, we in all probability are missing in a few of these nutritional vitamins and minerals. In order that’s an incredible place to begin. I believe all people must be on some type of vitamin and mineral.

 

And never one measurement suits all, there are corporations on the market that may do customized blends for a person as a result of a male and a feminine want can be completely different. A man 60 in comparison with a man 16 can be completely different. So going and getting a generic complement in all probability isn’t the best way to go. So there are some corporations on the market, one which I take advantage of on a regular basis, I’ve customized blends proper right here, Persona Vitamin, they’re nice with that. You’re taking an evaluation and so they’ll offer you what you want.

 

So in case your hair’s falling out, or it’s brittle, and your pores and skin, so there’s one thing for hair, pores and skin, and nails in there. When you don’t sleep, there’s one thing that will help you sleep. When you smoke, there’ll be one thing in there for the, free radicals and that type of factor. So, that’s very important.

 

Then from there, there are quite a lot of designer dietary supplements that come into play that not all people wants, however as we age, there are joint points that we’ve considerations with. So I might begin on the very low degree, proper, the very base degree, and work your method up accordingly. Not all people wants every part. And I see lots of people losing their cash on dietary supplements that aren’t essential.

 

And when individuals come to purchase mine, I promise you, Katie, I inform lots of people, “No, you don’t want it. Don’t purchase it. Please don’t purchase it.” I inform those that on a regular basis, individuals take a look at me like, “Are you loopy?” They’ll thank me, they’ll say, “Thanks, Clark, for being so sincere.” I’m not gonna promote you one thing in the event you don’t want it as a result of, , 40 bucks ain’t altering my life. However having an sincere trade with one other human helps me fall asleep at evening. And that’s extra vital to me than the rest.

 

Katie: I really like that very a lot. And some questions, I rapid-fire I ask on the finish of interviews. The primary being if there’s a e book or a lot of books which have profoundly influenced your life, and in that case, what they’re and why?

 

Clark: Completely. So I’ll present you this one proper right here, “As a Man Thinketh” by James Allen. You possibly can see how simply tattered and marked up this factor is. I’ve learn it over 200 occasions, I’ve listened to it a number of occasions. I extremely suggest it for anyone. It’s very small. And you’ll learn one sentence and cease and see legislation, meditate on the phrases on this factor. It’s simply… proper right here, I’ll simply go to what I popped up “As a person achieves and all that he fails to attain is the direct results of his personal ideas.” Received that? Underline proper there, growth. It’s high quality stuff. Yep.

 

Katie: I adore it. That’s a brand new suggestion, and it ties proper again into the mindset theme that we’ve had all through this entire episode. I’ll hyperlink to that e book within the present notes at wellnessmama.fm as nicely. And for hyperlinks within the present notes. Lots of people listening are ladies, however lots of them are married to males. I do know you’ve got quite a lot of sources particular to males but additionally relevant to women and men. The place can individuals discover you on-line and continue to learn?

 

Clark: My Instagram is @clarkbartram. My TikTok is therealclarkbartram as a result of I’m getting ripped off left and proper. And YouTube, which has my 3 Strikes, 3 Minutes, which anyone can use, is CBX Clark Bartram Programs. And I’ve an app that anybody might use, simply clarkbartram.app. It’s not on any of the Play shops, you possibly can go there and get that. However I used to be gonna say one thing about…oh, go forward. I forgot.

 

Katie: Perhaps this may set off your reminiscence. Simply any parting recommendation for individuals listening in the present day, may very well be unrelated or associated to what we’ve already talked about.

 

Clark: I believe I’ll return to what we actually began with firstly of this, Katie, is love your self in the present day. I might love to offer you some homework as we finish this for everyone watching. I might encourage you to stand up and go look into the mirror, and simply inform your self how a lot you like your self.

 

Folks usually misunderstand me after I inform individuals how a lot I really like me. I really like me some me. I’m the good individual I do know I’m. I’m an superior human being. And that may set off some individuals, and the those that it triggers, in my view, are the individuals who don’t have that very same self-love and so they simply can not perceive that one other individual has that and it’s not being immodest.

 

I’m no higher, you’re no worse. I’m simply actually really understanding of the worth that I convey the world and the way a lot I take pleasure in being right here proper now. Like this proper now’s the good factor that I may very well be doing. So simply take pleasure in the place you’re at. I wrote one thing down yesterday, I assumed it was fairly cool. Be the place your toes are, be the place your toes are. So in the present day, as we go, simply be the place your toes are.

 

Katie: I really like that. I believe that ties in a lot of the mindset piece actually really being the important thing. And I do know I’ve talked about it on this podcast earlier than and I can’t emphasize it sufficient as a result of I noticed in my very own life, when my mindset modified from that self-hate and self-critical to like and peace, and acceptance of myself, every part else modified from that.

 

I discovered the quote in the course of that transition that stated, “I stated to my physique, ‘I need to be your good friend.’ And it took a deep breath and responded, ‘I’ve been ready your entire life for this.’” And I believe it, like, actually simply illustrates that mindset actually crosses over into every part else and it’s not talked about sufficient. So I really like that you simply defined it so nicely on this episode. This was a very enjoyable dialog. I’m so glad to have had you on. Thanks in your time.

 

Clark: Properly, thanks very a lot.

 

Katie: And thanks as all the time to all of you for listening and sharing your most beneficial sources, your time, your vitality, and your consideration with us in the present day. We’re each so grateful that you simply did, and I hope that you’ll be part of me once more on the subsequent episode of “The Wellness Mama Podcast.”

Doing this helps extra individuals to seek out the podcast, which implies much more mothers and households may gain advantage from the knowledge. I actually admire your time, and thanks as all the time for listening.
