Hello my name is John,

I am 61 years of age and I am from Montreal, Quebec Canada
I speak French and English

I have been following a strict Carnivore regime since August 2018 and before that a Ketogenic diet since 2003.
Although things were going very well while on a Ketogenic diet, the Carnivore lifestyle just took it to another level.
I also have extensive experience with prolonged fasting and have been doing monthly 7 day, water only fasts, since August 2018.

As a former elite athlete I am amazed at how effortless achieving ideal body composition has become, and my strength continues to improve daily on this diet. Joint pain and arthritis, which plagued me for years, cleared up completely within 4-5 weeks of beginning the carnivore diet. Digestion has never been better, no bloating, gas or distended stomach. Skin quality has improved and my formerly completely grey hair has begun to regain some of its former darkness.

For me the Carnivore lifestyle, including fasting, are like the secret weapons or secret power that everyone has access to but that very few take advantage of.

My goal is to demonstrate how easy it is to switch to a carnivore lifestyle, with or without fasting, and immediately start experiencing the life changing health benefits.

I enjoy the outdoors and have always been physically active in sport and nature. I work in the health care sector and have been preoccupied with optimizing human performance most of my life. I am a manual therapist of the Structural Integration variety and the founder and senior instructor of a modality called Adaptive Bodywork. Since August 2018 I have been a strict Carnivore and have simultaneously practiced monthly 7 day, water only fasts, achieving results that are far beyond my expectations.

I am also a certified Primal Health Coach (Mark Sisson), a Metabolic Fitness Pro (Bryan Walsh), and a nutrition consultant and lifestyle coach. I refer to myself as being a dietary agnostic but align myself with the Ancestral/Primal/Paleo/Ketogenic/Carnivore principles as well as with fasting, to address the current epidemic of Type 2 diabetes with all its various manifestations. I work with clients with metabolic syndrome which includes obesity, insulin resistance, type two diabetes, cancer, dementia, and autoimmune dysfunction.

My client base ranges from professional athletes to ninety year old women wishing to improve their movement quality and general well being. I work and teach these principles across Canada and in Europe. I am based in Montreal and am passionate about my work and life in general. I am a former competitive athlete, so sport and enhancing human performance on a base of sound cellular/metabolic health, longevity and health span, remain a primary focus of what I do. My friends refer to me as a body nerd. Currently my sports activities include Cycling, Alpine Skiing, Squash, Tennis, Olympic lifting, Rowing and Trail running HIIT style.

I’m looking forward to getting you up to speed with both the Carnivore Diet & fasting
Give me a call and let’s get started

    I specifically wanted to talk to John because he is a lifter, and has been weightlifting some pretty heavy amounts, and is stronger than me and twice my age. He gave me good advice on some things to try to get through my plateau, I’m excited to try them. Thanks John!

    I just had a meeting with John S. With John being a performance athlete his background aligned with my goals and where I see myself in the future. He was very informative and knowledgeable on carnivore. With all the reading and research I have been doing on the carnivore diet he managed to enlighten me on seeing it it more clearly and what happens at a metabolic level. I am very excited to take this 30 day challenge and go full carnivore. Book a coaching session. He’s awesome!

  3. stephen thomas (verified owner)

    Just of my zoom video with John and I couldn’t be more motivated. Excellent information, very clear and detailed. Went over time slightly but John was Ok as he wanted to make sure I’d got the answers I needed. I’ve been carnivore for 6 months and I’m doing great on it so I wasn’t sure I could actually push on but John has given me some guidance how to ‘turbo charge’ my progress. Glad I booked.

    Man where can I start. This guy is a probably in the best shape out of anybody else 60+ on the planet. If you’re an athlete or into fitness and are looking into the carnivore diet, this is your coach. In our two sessions so far, John impressed me with his Extensive exercise and nutritional knowledge. He genuinely answered every question I had, and provided ample factual/anecdotal evidence supporting any claim. There were many questions I had that were too specific too have been covered in a YouTube video or internet article, and John always had an answer. John respects your personal approach to the diet as well, even though he does not eat dairy, he never persuaded me not to eat it. A lot of people will let their ego and dogma overtake their diet, not John. Also a great resource for any concerns or questions in the gym.

    Man where do I begin. If you’re an ATHLETE of any kind, talk to this man. John is probably the fittest 61 yr old I’ve ever met. Off the cuff I knew he was the right choice, his results speak for themselves. It was important to talk with someone who was experienced in training/athletics, as I am a former athlete but continue to train with weights and some high intensity cardio 5-6 times a week. He answered every question I had with ease and accuracy, citing scientific evidence, personal anecdotes, or a combination of both. I’ve done two sessions, and got so much out of each. He’s also very open to how other people want to approach the diet. Not everyone will eat organ meats, raw foods, and exclude dairy and spices. He helps you find your middle ground while referencing his own experiences. He also didn’t stop the session short if it went over 30 min. He wanted to make sure every question I had was answered, and was more than happy to do so. Highly recommend John. His nutritional and exercise knowledge is DEEP and believe me it is not easy to find a living resource like this. Well worth the money.

    Hi,
    I I wrote a more thorough review of John just now and would like that posted out of courtesy to John. So please Approve that one and do not post this review or the first one I posted a couple days ago. Thanks

    I started carnivore in October 2019. I am 67, swim 3-5 miles per week and lift lite weights. I had been on a grain free diet for the last few years. My adaptation to carnivore has been mostly positive but I still have muscle cramping, occasional arrhythmia (which I have had for 15 years), and have struggled to keep my weight up since starting carnivore. The call I had with John today was really worthwhile. He has a deep understanding of performance training and strength building being a former elite athlete and a Primal Health Coach. He was able to make several recommendations to address my challenges. I highly recommend John as a coach. It is hard to find someone with such a vast depth of experience and training.

  8. John (verified owner)

    Regarding John S., he is a wonderfully knowledgeable coach. His understanding of how our bodies work, combined with his personal experiences as an athlete and active carnivore, make him the ideal coach. I would highly recommend him to others!

  9. Kelly O. (verified owner)

    John is SUPER knowledgeable in all aspects of nutrition, he is also extremely smart when it comes to the science behind exercising. It’s a bargain and a privilege to be able to converse with such an intelligent and friendly person….I highly recommend!!!

  10. Augustine Desrosier (verified owner)

    I chose John because he’s my same age and because of his experience. He confirmed what I’ve learnt through experience of trial and errior. He clarified the path I needed to take by adapting a carnivore diet and HIgh intensity exercise. He’s a very knowledgeable and intelligent coach. I’m going to check in with him to ask more questions and get valuable feedback and accountability.

  11. Carl Feinman (verified owner)

    Just started the carnivore diet (day2) and had my session with John. I felt very much listened to and John answered all my questions related to the diet. He gave the information along with some motivation to adhere to the diet. He also offered a suggestion for me to change my whole workout philosophy and routine. As a result of the session I feel extremely motivated to embark on my journey to optimize my physical, emotional, and cognitive health . Thank you John. I highly recommend John as a coach

  12. Maria Aldrete (verified owner)

    Had my first session with John today. John is very knowledgeable and explains things in an easy to understand and direct fashion. He helped me prioritize and gave me some great tips on how to start carnivore diet. I am looking forward to following his coaching and checking in again in a weeks time!

  13. James Stegenga (verified owner)

    John has tons of experience in the realm of nutrition and sports performance, and it was inspirational to hear about how the carnivore diet has improved his life. I’ve been hemming and hawing about diving fully into this way of eating, and I’m now committed to going for it. I’m about the same age as him, and I’ve slacked off a bit (quite a bit) from my former level of fitness. He’s definitely given me some idea of what is possible. He answered my questions clearly, and spent extra time addressing my concerns. I’m looking forward to checking in with him in a few weeks.

  14. Laura West (verified owner)

    So worth every penny! I was at a loss and about to give up on all the progress I had made. John help me pin point major mistakes I was making and helped me fine tune my training strategy- funny thing is I was over complicating everything and John helped me make it even easier to reach my goals! he made sure to answer all of my questions and was very knowledgeable! Thank you John!!!

  15. Skylr Z. (verified owner)

    Wow! Brand new to carnivore and booked this session wanting to get a solid foundation of knowledge, a clear game plan, and realistic expectations plus input on training for my goals. John delivered 1000%!! John helped me with a plan that is simple, straightforward and practical. And that will work for me. I am truly excited!! I feel equipped to make the transition successfully and, importantly, have a trusted, expert resource who has the deep knowledge, and real-world experience of his own and others, to help and support me going forward. As importantly, he has a generous heart and his coaching is truly an act of service born of a true desire to help others take back control and be fully empowered so they too experience their highest level of health, fitness and vitality. I cannot recommend a session with John highly enough – whether you are just starting off, have hit a plateau, or just have some questions that if/once answered will leave you feeling more clear, at peace and enable you to continue with a carnivore life. 🙂 Thank you John! <3

  16. Michael Taylor (verified owner)

    I just had a really long chat with John. He is extremely friendly and supportive. I had many detailed questions about exercise regimes and he has answered all my questions completely and perfectly. His knowledge on fitness and muscle training is incredible. He is also has incredible insight and knowledge of the carnivore diet. He is a great coach. Thoroughly recommended!!
    Thanks for everything John!

  17. Elizabeth McGoldrick (verified owner)

    John was really helpful to speak with. He had done research on my concerns and questions before we even got on the phone for our coaching sessions. He seemed extremely knowledgeable and truly a poster boy for the health benefits of the Carnivore lifestyle. He shared helpful information and then following our call he sent me key points from our conversation along with relevant resources to help me even further. I would highly recommend John to anyone who is serious about the Carnivore way of life. He is a true believer based on his own experience….hard to argue with that!

  18. Douglas Scribner (verified owner)

    Just got offline with John, if your an athlete or just someone looking to get an edge, John is your coach. Very informative and has a ton of info to offer. He listened to my story and asked the appropriate questions to evaluate my health issues.
    He had some great recommendations for me and my intestinal track to get back on the right path to better health. I have been Carnivore for some time but not strict enough so John gave me some ideas to be better suggesting fasting and meat/eggs and water for my diet.
    Looking forward to better health,
    Thanks John and I will be chatting with you soon with updates!

  19. Wanda Rutland (verified owner)

    John was so helpful with my arm, shoulder pain. He gave me good suggestions to get my range of motion back and what kind of physical therapist to see. (Iwould see him if I was in Canada!) He encouraged me in my carnivory (which has been a miracle–my 25 years of Crohn’s/IBS was completely cured in just one week on an all-meat diet!) John was nice, knowledgable and spent more than the allotted time with me.

    Wow , JOHN was a wealth of information and gave me a ton of suggestions for improving my health, how to eat, how to train, how to set up systems so I can do accomplish the goals set. Well worth the investment … got more value than expected. Simple process to follow to improve health and well being. I will be implementing and will check back in a few weeks and spend money for another session. … 10 stars!!!!

  21. Satish Jagadeesan (verified owner)

    John was able to see fine details and mistakes which I was doing unintentionally. There are many articles online but few pointers from a knowledgeable coach like John undoubtedly very important role. He understands where client is coming from and how to work around constraints. We extened our session by few minutes but he was kind enough to explain concepts still. Highly recommended.

  22. Derek

    I have been on the Carnivore diet for about four months and I have been thrilled with the results. The one issue I have had with the Carnivore dit was dealing with routine muscle cramps. I do a lot of strength training and felt John would be a good candidate to discuss my issue due to his extensive athletic background. John went over our 30 min time period to make sure I had all of my questions answered and he provided me some great information on both my diet and exercise routine. If you are somebody who is interested in a low/zero carb – high fat diet, as well as an exercise program, I can’t think of a better coach to speak with than John. Once I take some time to incorporate his suggestions into my diet and exercise routine and I am able to get my blood work back, I plan to book a second session with John.

  23. John Michaels (verified owner)

    Fantastic consultation. I’ve been on carnivore for a month and needed direction and tweaking of my diet and training to drive me to a lower body fat %. John gave me some great direction and insight. I will be planning to follow up in 90 days with my progress. Highly recommended

  24. Michelle (verified owner)

    I’ve been a runner for over 2 decades, but I’m entering the ultra world. I wanted to know how to become fat adapted and take my running to the next level. John is a wealth of knowledge and he gave me the tools and confidence to work towards being fat adapted. If you’re an athlete looking to use the carnivore diet or become fat adapted, this might be the best $18 you spend! I highly recommend John’s coaching services.

  25. Sohail (verified owner)

    John is a man who is knowledgable, generous and “jacked”! Knowledgable with theory and practical experience he has in both Keto and Carnivore. On our call he even showed me examples from his freezer of the meats that he eats and simplified the diet down for me with a shopping list at Costco’s. John is generous as our call went well over and he took the time to answer all my questions. John is jacked because… well, just take a look at his photos! For over 60 years old, he puts most 20 years olds to shame! I left the call with knowledge on how to do Carnivore and why, clarity that the diet was the way to go, confidence that it would cure my ailments and inspiration by John’s example that by following the Carnivore diet and working out, there is a chance and hope that I could look jacked like John too! Thanks very much John, I appreciate your time and knowledge sharing! Book a call with John today, he’s awesome and you won’t regret it! 🙂

  26. Brian Denman (verified owner)

    John was extremely helpful and gave me the motivation to continue on this dietary path. He answered all my questions and went beyond the allotted time to make sure I got the information I needed. I’m looking forward to our next session!

  27. Daniel Mc Guigan (verified owner)

    John was a great help and source of information, very knowledgeable and motivational and I would highly recommend to anyone considering embarking on the carnivore lifestyle. I look forward to speaking with him again in the not too distant future.

  28. Mike Orsini (verified owner)

    I enjoyed my consultation with John. He’s the real deal and knows a lot about Carnivore eating, fasting and exercise protocols. I missed my first meeting (my own fault) but he included the time, free of charge, in my second meeting which was really cool. I was particularly impressed with his knowledge of exercise physiology and how it can be used to enhance the effects of Carnivore eating to reach my health transformation goals. I’ll continue to use him as a resource in the future and would highly recommend him to anyone interested in Carnivore eating, fasting and/or overall athletic fitness. CHEERS!!!

  29. Dale Straub (verified owner)

    I had a great consultation with John. The key learning that he gave me was the convincing realization that I am metabolically damaged, as evidenced by my morbid obesity. Not sure why I never admitted to the obvious truth of that statement. But there is cause for hope! Eating a strict Carnivore diet, together with other changes, can powerfully correct much of this. John went into great detail from his own life (training, nutrition, etc.) on the many strategies which can holistically support improved health. I highly recommend you begin your Carnivore journey with John!.

  30. Matthew (verified owner)

    Very knowledgable backed by his own practice and examples. The real deal. Gave me some good ideas to get through my challenges.

  31. Mike Connolly (verified owner)

    My first session with John today was excellent. I have never paid for any kind of online coaching before so today was a big step for me …I was very impressed. I am confident John will be the right coach and mentor to take me forward. I will be booking again for sure.

  32. Dan (verified owner)

    John is super knowledgeable and not just on carnivore & fasting. He incorporates a wealth of health knowledge and relates it to carnivore eating. He is very, very positive and can break down to just the essentials of what you need. John is also a terrific role model and genuinely cares about you. His explanations were spot on for my issues.

  33. Tom Reed (verified owner)

    Read all the other reviews before mine because everyone is spot on. There is not much more I can say or add. If you are researching (like everyone else) for real specific guidance like nutrition, body movement, manual therapy suggestions, fasting, and fitness, then look no further than John. But, what actually separates John’s skills/traits from the pack: Compassion, Knowledge, Trust, Listening, Motivation, and Counseling (just to name a few). Book it and you will never regret it. Also, like others said, John will go the “extra mile” to answer all your questions.

  34. Sanjay Kevin Evran (verified owner)

    John knows his stuff, and lives it too. Very helpful session, Thanks John!

  35. Sergio Zambrano (verified owner)

    I had a coaching call with John this weekend. I’m new to the carnivore diet and had a list of questions to discuss. I found John very knowledgeable with a lot of experience. I choose John because I was looking for an edge in peak performance, to increase my energy levels and build the immune system. We talked for an hour and I really enjoy the discussion. I was inspired after the call to go and complete my shopping to start the diet. Though it’s early days I already feel good and sleeping better. I will follow up on my progress with a check-in with John again. Good luck!

  36. Holly Coughlan (verified owner)

    John gave me the best advice I have ever received in my entire life- I’ve studied the human body since I was a child and tried so many different diets and exercise routines- but what he told me today is the final answer I’ve been searching for- and he is the living testimony of his advice- in amazing shape with plenty of experience- he told me clearly and directly what I needed to do and not worry about- his advice was very practice and easy to follow- he even demonstrated a move I wasn’t familiar with and gave me the inspiration and motivation to want to implement these lifestyle changes immediately- right after the call I made some fish and eggs, booked another session with him in a few weeks time to check in and wrote this review- John, where have you been alll my life??!!!!!! 😀😀😀😀

  37. Mike Maedke (verified owner)

    One word…Awesome! John’s knowledge and patience in explaining his journey to carnivore was by far the most enlightening and informative information and explanation I have received in the countless coaches and fitness/ nutrition programs I have purchased in the past. As a 57 year old bodybuilder, and access to some of the top fitness icons, John advise ranks high on my list! His quiet demeanor and they way he walks you through his
    experience simplifies what it takes to be and live a carnivore lifestyle. I am a week in and already feel it’s benefits thanks to John. I will be reporting back Coach! John is the man! Best “meat” & greet I have had! Recommend highly!

  38. Brent (verified owner)

    John would be a particularly good choice if you want to mix fasting with carnivore as he has a lot of experience fasting.

  39. Joe Howard (verified owner)

    Very, very impressed and appreciative. I chose John because his experience and expertise seemed to line up closely to my priorities and that turned out to be the case and then some.

    The depth of knowledge and willingness to share it was much more than I expected – and my expectations were pretty high just based on his bio. It was uncanny how he nailed the issues/experiences I have had in my own journey.

    I will definitely be checking in with John for additional coaching as I incorporate his recommendations into my routine.

    Highly recommend John to anyone who wants to understand the “why and how”.

  40. Dakota (verified owner)

    Great knowledge!! Really excited to start this new journey of my life and to see where it takes me!

  41. Daniel (verified owner)

    I had a wonderful coaching session with John.
    He’s super knowledgeable about the Carnivore Diet, fasting and body optimization.
    I’m going to implement everything he recommended for sure.
    It would be a great idea to have a John’s Success Story video on the Meatrx Youtube Channel. I’m sure it will inspire and motivate a lot of people.

  42. Bineypal Dhillon (verified owner)

    I had a wonderful coaching session with john. He has a lot of knowledge in the field of carnivore diet and he answered all my questions very thoroughly.

  43. Josh (verified owner)

    John is a fountain of knowledge about nutrition and exercise. I got a lot out of my first session with John and have scheduled additional sessions with him to help me navigate my introduction to the carnivore diet. He clearly understands the science and can discuss it in layman’s terms that make the science accessible. He also shows a genuine interest in helping clients navigate issues or concerns and work toward achieving the impressive health John exhibits. I look forward to working with John more in the future. Great carnivore coach!
