Quotes by Dr Brian Lenzkes

“You start realising the incentive plan is skewed in a way because the sicker you get, the more I get paid.”

“The reason that doctors think that diet doesn’t make a difference is because they were putting them [their patients] on the wrong diet and it wasn’t working.”

“I realised 80% of the people probably didn’t care what I was saying because they are not going to give up their junk food and what they are doing.”

We have to change the standard of care.“

Enjoying the journey, you can’t just wait until the summit to look down and enjoy, you have to take a breath and look around and go WOW I have come a long way.” 

“In 6 months I had 11 people come off insulin.”

“I've seen these, these miracle drugs coming out, they're touted and everyone says “This is gonna change the world” and they come out and kill people and you go, this isn't a good thing.”

"The number one thing they tell me is ‘I'm not hungry all the time and I feel free from food for the first time in my life’. I hear that every day in my career right now."

"It's like when you have success, then they're going to come to you and go ‘what are you doing now?’ They may have thought you were crazy three months ago, but now you have to weather the storm and do what you believe in."

"That N=1 I love, it’s like one person, it’s you."
