“How can I advise my patients on their obesity issues if I can’t even keep my own weight under control?” That was the primary question on the mind of Dr. Brian Lenzkes, an Internal Medicine Doctor based in San Diego, as 2017 started to take shape. Then he discovered Ketosis and experienced huge success. Since our event in August 2017, he has gone and helped many of his patients suffering from obesity and diabetes. At the time of writing he had already helped eleven of them to get off insulin completely through a Keto Diet and Fasting.
As the years had gone by Dr. Lenzkes had started to notice that he was putting on more and more weight each year no matter how hard he tried to exercise to keep it under control. Then, early in 2017, he picked up ‘The Obesity Code‘ by Jason Fung and learned about the concept of Intermittent Fasting and then, in conjunction with that, he learned about the Ketogenic Diet.
The more he read the more it made total sense and so, not wanting to use his patients as guinea pigs, he tried it out on himself first. Within a few months he had experienced exceptional weight loss without ever feeling hungry. He was blown away and, understanding now that the underlying reason for his problems had been Insulin Resistance, he realised that this is something that would work really well for his Diabetic patients as well as those struggling with weight.
It was around this time that he attended the LowCarbUSA® event in San Diego in Early August and hearing all the best scientists and researchers in the world backing up what he had read and seen for himself gave him total confidence to advise his patients similarly.
“I don’t even have to try to bring it up to them” he brags with glee, “they all ask me what I have been doing to enjoy such an amazing metamorphosis and that gives me the perfect opening for the conversation on Ketosis!” He has already helped eleven patients to come totally off their insulin medication and the numbers are destined to rise exponentially. His pharmaceutical rep is already very concerned that he is not ordering very much insulin anymore!
Now he is totally fixated on trying to teach more doctors about this glaring gap in their training and knowledge. He is starting by putting on local events here in San Diego to teach more people about this and I’m sure this is only the beginning.
You can learn about this Ketosis Fasting concept at any LowCarbUSA® future events. If you are local to San Diego you can check out the local events Dr. Lenzkes is putting on. He hosts these in conjunction with local cardiologist, Dr. Bret Scher, who debunks the myth that eating this way raises Cholesterol and increases Cardiovascular Disease.
