Gary Brecka’s Quotes

“I don’t eat a lot of carbohydrates before 2pm in the afternoon because carbohydrates are an energy vacuum. They’re thieves that will actually get into your gut and divert all that healthy oxygen and blood flow from your brain right down to your gut.”

―Gary Brecka

“I hear people all the time online saying ‘You should be Vegan, you should be Keto, you should be Paleo, you should be this, you should be that’. We should be eating a whole food diet. I have Vegan patients that are some of the sickest human beings that I have ever cared for in my life. I have meat eating patients that are some of the sickest human beings that I have ever cared for in my life. And you can make an argument for either. But the best argument is clean whole foods. Eating a whole food diet, obviously grass-fed meats, wild caught fish go a long way to improving our health.”

―Gary Brecka

“If you’re creating thoughts at a faster rate than you’re breaking them down, then the mind gets cloudy. And this is what we call attention deficit disorder.”

―Gary Brecka

“Calorie is a measure of heat, then when heat is leaving our bodies, guess what else is leaving our bodies? Calories. If you actually read the story of Michael Phelps when he went to Beijing to compete in the Olimpics, his count went to 10,000 calories a day. Why did this happen? Not because his training regimen changed but because the pool he was in was 4 degrees colder than the pool he was used to train in. Water is 29 times more thermogenic than air so when we get into cold water our liver panics and it floods the bloodstream with something called cold shock protein, these are miracle proteins that will scour our body of free radicals oxidation and they will quadruple the rate of protein synthesis muscle repair.”

    ―Gary Brecka

    “There’s a war on protein right now that I don’t understand because muscle is our metabolic currency. It’s an organ. It’s like our skin is an organ, but our muscle is an organ too. There’s something called ‘sarcopenia’ which is age-related muscle wasting and it’s directly tied to all-cause mortality because the weaker our muscles and the fat to muscle ratio the higher the incidence of all-cause mortality. The less mobile we are. The more prone we are to joint injury.”
