(21 customer reviews)


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 November 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.

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 is like a secret weapon 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 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.

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 the Carnivore Diet

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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

    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.

    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!!!

    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

    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!

    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!

    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!!!!

    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.
