Today, I am blessed to have for a THIRD time, Dr. Don Clum. He graduated from Life University in Marietta, GA in 1997 with a degree in Human Nutrition. He then moved to Life Chiropractic College West in California, where he graduated with his Doctorate of Chiropractic in 2000.

After graduation, Dr. Clum moved to San Jose, Costa Rica where he was invited to work with the Costa Rican Olympic Committee and Athletes. Dr. Clum participated in the National, Central American and Caribbean and Central American Games as the team chiropractor and as the official chiropractor for two professional soccer teams.

As a frequent guest on National Television and Radio, Dr. Clum was influential in bringing the gift of holistic health care to the people of Central America and worked with the government programs, instituting W.H.O. procedures and working directly with the indigenous populations of Costa Rica.

He was sought after as a speaker and has presented to various professional sports teams, universities, medical groups, medical and chiropractic schools, businesses and government agencies. Dr. Clum was instrumental in forming the first Colegio or “Board” and enacting the first legislation recognizing chiropractic as a licensed and legal healing profession in Costa Rica.

In this episode, Dr. Clum opens the show by revealing why the 'calories in, calories out' method of eating is bogus. Plus, he tells us how glycogen works and the reason that too many people oversimplify it. Dr. Clum explains why people who burn more calories are happier, and he gives an overview of the blood markers you should use to measure insulin health. Tune in as we chat about the problem with snacking, how to know if you're fasting too much, and we dig deep into adrenals, insulin, and cortisol.

[02:45] Does ‘Calories in vs. Calories out’ Really Matter?

  • Humans are dynamic open systems.
  • First of all, the accuracy for calories is fundamentally off. There's automatically up to a 25% error rate for calories.
  • Plus, our body will process calories differently depending on what they are.
  • Sugars will be released into your body differently depending on your gut bacteria.

[07:30] The Glycogen Concept Is Flawed – We Oversimplify It

  • We never tap out our glycogen.
  • You don't have to reduce glycogen by a significant amount if you're metabolically flexible.
  • The glycogen in our liver is there for our body.
  • Glycogen appears to be pretty steady no matter what you do.
  • You don't have to deplete all your glycogen to go into fat burning.

[17:30] People Who Burn More Calories Are Happier

  • People who burn more calories are happier because of different hormonal states.
  • Your body will interpret nutrients in your gut.
  • Food is not fuel – it’s information.
  • Your body doesn’t handle processed food very well, even protein powders.

[24:10] Blood Markers You Can Use To Monitor Insulin Health

  • You can do serum insulin, which is fasting insulin. You want that number as low as possible.
  • This number should be around 2 or 3.
  • When you eat, that number can blow up to seven times.
  • If you start at 20, then you’ll go up to 140. If you keep doing that each day, then you have a problem.
  • Most Americans eat in a fifteen-hour window – they are eating from the time they wake up to the time they go to bed.

[26:05] Why Snacking Could Be Damaging Your Health

  • Snacking causes a lot of issues.
  • People are snacking between 19 and 23 times a day.
  • If you are constantly digesting, then you aren’t recycling.
  • When your body is resting, then it is in autophagy. So, your cells will start to work better.
  • Autophagy allows new cells to come in and replace cells that have died.

[31:40] Signs You Could Be Fasting Too Often

  • Clum teaches progressive fasting rotations.
  • Growth will start to kick in after a fast.
  • You could lose 97% of your new cells if you don’t end a fast in the right way.
  • It is rare that you lose lean body muscle from fasting.
  • You have to have a body fat percentage of 5% or less to tap into muscle during a fast.

[34:10] Does It Matter What Foods You Break A Fast With?

  • What breaks the fast depends on why you're doing the fast.
  • The food you eat will matter up to two weeks after you fast.
  • Eat foods that are insulin friendly.
  • Plus, exercise is a key component of repairing your cells.

[50:45] Quitting Junk Food Causes Withdrawals Like Drug Addiction

  • When an addict stops drinking, they will be lightheaded, irritable, feel terrible, shake, and sweat.
  • When some people skip a meal, they feel the exact same way.
  • Food fuels the addiction pathway. In fact, food is more addictive than drugs.
  • Food hits dopamine and serotonin.
  • Every time insulin gets shot out, so does serotonin.

[55:30] Dr. Clum Does Not Encourage C-Peptide Level Testing

  • If triglycerides are over 100, there's an insulin issue.
  • Over 150 is a metabolic syndrome marker.
  • Insulin resistance is inversely related to vitamin D.
  • If your vitamin D is low, you have insulin resistance.
  • Insulin will hold down vitamin D.

[60:10] The Relationship Between Adrenals, Insulin, and Cortisol

  • We beat up the adrenals a lot as the culprit for fatigue and adrenal fatigue.
  • However, only a third of the cortisol is actually made in the adrenal.
  • The brain makes a third of the cortisol because it is highly sensitive to inflammation. It makes cortisol to keep inflammation levels as low as possible.
  • When you burn fat, it’s an inflammatory process.
  • We will recycle about 1.3% of our cells a day. What matters is how efficient you are in the process.

[73:45] An Overweight Diabetic Only Has To Lose One Gram

  • For an overweight type two data to become a normal person, how much weight do they have to lose?
  • People think it’s 10% of their body weight.
  • However, the answer is one gram. The gram has to come out of the pancreas.
  • If a 350 lb. person loses one gram from the pancreas, they will no longer be a diabetic.
