My Story

My name is Stephen and I have been a carnivore since early 2019, when I turned 55.

Just before reaching 50 years-old I had decided to go low-carb after a CAC score of 639 and finding out I was pre-diabetic. Low carb was a big improvement on the high carb diet I had been eating all my life before that.

So I started eating low-carb and saw some improvements but the results, although great, were not as good as I wanted. The next logical step seemed to be trying the Ketogenic way of eating.

Things improved a bit more but still I had some remaining niggles. This is when I went carnivore and my life transformed. After a period of adaptation and my family adjusting to it too!

Back in my twenties I had a brief spell as a semi-professional soccer player, won a singles tennis tournament and ran most middle distance races but I wasn’t healthy, I had frequent colds, always had athletes foot and other issues, plus I wasn’t the right weight.

In my forties I suffered from lower left quadrant pain and needed a colonoscopy. All these aches, issues and pains have all disappeared since eating mostly animal based nutrition.

Now I am a certified carnivore coach at I hope I can help people achieve the same results as I have. More strength, healthier, no colds for 5 years now and all issues completely gone.

I am a qualified diabetes and obesity specialist practitioner in the UK as well as a Level 4 Personal Trainer.

So I have a broad set of skills. I’m currently finishing a science degree in Sport, health and coaching.

I was a high-carb, low-fat eating athlete that got fatter and sicker as I tried to out train what I now see was the completely wrong way of eating.

As I lowered carbs I moved towards being a thinner, fitter sports person and a much healthier person on a carnivore diet.

What’s improved

Body fat percentage dropped

Muscle mass has increased

Pre-diabetes gone (I’m a qualified phlebotomist so can do my own bloods)

Athlete’s foot gone after 30 years of being plagued by it.

Facial skin rash gone

More energy

Stronger than I’ve ever been

Zero lower back pain (I was told at age 23 I’d be in a wheelchair by age 50!)

    I had a wonderful first coaching session with Stephen. His manner is very professional & he is easy to talk to.

    I have a complex autoimmune disease & obesity. Stephen had taken the time to thoroughly review my pre-meeting questionnaire prior to our conversation & had clearly done his research on my illness. He asked detailed questions & gave great insights into which disrupted pathways in my body could be causing some of my medical issues. He had prioritised which areas should be addressed first to get the greatest health benefits & directed me to a free medical test I can get from my GP to give a greater insight into what could be going wrong. He talked about the three possible outcomes of the test & how we can proceed for each or any of those results once we have that information.

    Stephen clearly has extensive knowledge of anatomy & how complex systems work within the body. His advice was clear & detailed & he is good at breaking down complex science into easy to understand language. He clearly enjoys solving problems & getting to the route of medical issues. I highly recommend Stephen & I will be booking my next session with him.

  2. Kevin Phillips

    Stephen has a very wide medical and anatomical knowledge base. This has meant he has been able to answer all of my questions in regards to both diet and health also reassuring me in regards to my body’s nutritional and physical needs. His coaching is not purely from knowledge but also his personal experience as he is an active carnivore and won’t recommend anything he hasn’t tried himself. Stephens way of explaining the carnivore way of life is easy to understand and has made me realise it is natures correct way to eat. He can also dispel may common myths that have been sold to us by drug companies and government over the years in regards to “so called” healthy eating.
    I’d highly recommend speaking to Stephen to allay your concerns and guide you to a healthier fitter future.

  3. Amy Ward (verified owner)

    Fantastic first coaching session with Stephen! He really listened to my queries/ experience so far which enabled him to really tailor the conversation to what I needed. He answered all my questions in detail and gave clear guidance on how to move forward with the carnivore diet.

    Stephen has extensive knowledge and experience; he gave great advice and guidance which he explained clearly/in a way that was easy to understandand. I will definitely be booking in with him again. I left the session feeling super motivated and excited to continue.

  4. Corey Glenn (verified owner)

    I had a very good first coaching session with Stephen. He answered all my questions about my concerns of having had gastric bypass surgery. He was very easy to talk with, felt like old chums at the end. He had a lot of good suggestions about my eating plan and I have implemented them without problem. Being an RN, I was glad to hear that he was medically inclined and was continuing his education to help him become an even better Health Coach. I have already booked a second session with him!

  5. stephen williams (verified owner)

    Great session, great coach! Being a strength coach myself, I’m already quite well versed on nutrition and I was already on the carnivore diet. However there was some questions I had and Steven had the knowledge to answer these questions with ease. If I ever have to book another session for support with the carnivore diet I will book Steven without hesitation. Highly recommended!!

  6. Jim Kirsch (verified owner)

    It was a pleasure to visit with Stephen regarding some of the aspects and issues I am having with implementing the carnivore diet. He is a very understanding and empathetic person and gave me good perspectives on how to explore resolving my issues. He was very easy to have a back and forth conversation with–a very pleasant guy! I am quite satisfied with my consultation and I intend to apply his recommendations and get back together with him in the future to discuss the results. Thank you Stephen–I’m quite glad I reached out!

  7. Lark Garr (verified owner)

    Thanks Stephen! Had a great session talking about exercising at home while we’re all in isolation. Helped me work out what I can use around the house to continue the resistance and strength training I have been doing in the gym regularly for the past few years. Discovered a 6kg bag of kitty litter is perfect for bicep curls, weighted walking lunges etc etc. So great to talk to a carnivore strength coach and to get video feedback on how I was doing my daily pushups! Your genuine care and passionate interest in helping folks is much appreciated. Thank you.

  8. Fred Dickey (verified owner)

    I throughly enjoyed my session so much that I’m rebooking with Stephen to keep me motivated and accountable.

  9. Brenden Vaughan (verified owner)

    Stephen was great! Very insightful on how to adapt the carnivore style to my lifestyle. Being a university student he was able to cue me in on some food that would help keep a low budget. What was even better was the fact that he used all the time slotted and gave me extra help on some workout tips as well. Highly recommend!

  10. Phil W (verified owner)

    Stephen is extremely knowledgeable and a very good listener. He is helping me to figure out a puzzling roadblock in the carnivore diet, and has come up with ideas no one else has before. He is the Columbo of the MeatRx coaching staff. 🙂

  11. Michael Landau-Spiers (verified owner)

    Just had my first call with Stephen, and he was so encouraging and helpful. Really enjoyed it and appreciated his advice!

  12. Lindsay M (verified owner)

    Had an awesome session today with Coach Stephen! He made the path clear on what we need to really be focused just starting out and we cant wait to see the improvements we get based on his advice!

  13. Mike Sanders (verified owner)

    This was my first time chatting with a coach and Stephen far exceeded my expectations. I chose him specifically because he was similar in age to me and has extensive knowledge of diabetes, which I have eliminated through Keto/Carnivore. Stephen had many great observations and suggestions, which I will be putting into practice. I have already decided to book him again for a follow-up chat in the near future! Thanks mate, see you again soon!

  14. Lonnie Richards (verified owner)

    I signed up with MeatRX because of the affordability of the website and the chance to have a coach help me at such a great price. However, that being said I have complicated issues (Cancer,thyroid issues etc). I had to find someone that didn’t just have knowledge about weight loss but also about how the body works. As I scrolled over all the coaches Stephen’s profile jumped out at me. To be fair I looked over all of them but I knew this one was it! I had one session with Stephen and it was awesome. He showed in our conversation that he knows how the body works, how illness can effect the whole person and I am looking forward to working with him. Right after our session I booked my second one the next week with no hesitation. Having someone supporting you in a health journey let alone a complicated one makes all the difference. Thank you Stephen I can’t wait for our next coaching session. Lonnie Richards

  15. Anthony (verified owner)

    Stephen was great!

    He helped me clarify several concerns I had and gave me useful guidance on how to transition to a carnivore diet smoothly.

    Looking forward to our next meeting!

  16. Ryan Hofer (verified owner)

    I have been working with Stephen for several months now. Not only is he an incredible source of knowledge but is a great encourager and source of inspiration. He knows the struggles we all face; he is real, honest and brings freedom to my daily walk with food rather than bondage. I look forward to connecting with him each time and know that I will leave that conversation a little more wiser and with a few more tools to help me on my journey.

  17. Chisolm Woolley (verified owner)

    I have had my first session with Stephen and he has confirmed my feelings with needing to go Carnivore. I have been Keto for over a year and always felt as if something was missing so I just started dabbling into this and after just a half hour with him over Zoom gave me more confidence that I can do this. I am grateful that he utilizes his real experience and knowledge to best help his clients and that he is a straight shooter. I am excited to book my next call with him and to continue on this journey to finding better health and better quality of life.

  18. William Li (verified owner)

    Great coach.
    Very informative and excellent at answering all questions and provided real insight into low carb and carnivore

  19. Yomi Oh (verified owner)

    Stephen has a great knowledge about fitness, muscle toning, eating windows and nutrition. The coaching session was very insightful. He also provides an online questionnaire beforehand to ask about eating habits, age, gender, weight and height and the goals. So that he can give precise advice. I highly recommend him as a Carnivore coach. I also think that a regular meeting with him would increase the success on one’s health journey. Thank you Stephen!

  20. Hogne Kirkebø (verified owner)

    To assist me on my second time doing Carnivore I decided to book a session with Stephen. We had an amazing conversation where we discussed my aversion towards organ meats, and some of physical symptoms that Ive had for many years with stiff joints and congested sinuses.
    Stephen was incredibly helpful and I’m already very much looking forward to our follow up call in a week or two.

  21. Eveliina (verified owner)

    I had a great and inspiring coaching session with Stephen. Stephen was not only knowledgeable and professional, and able to provide the information I needed, he was also kind and helpful. I got clarity and and practical tips on how to tweak my diet and lifestyle for my needs and for supporting my thyroid health. I highly recommend him as a coach! Thank you so much, Stephen!

  22. Jamie Walker (verified owner)

    I booked Stephen because his story seemed similar to mine; lifelong athlete, but always carrying a little too much belly fat. His advice was what I had feared: Give up dairy for a month. I’m doing that, and two weeks in I have lost a few pounds. Look forward to booking him again. And I have found a home in the Carnivore diet. And I knew it right away.

  23. Mina Laing (verified owner)

    Stephen is so wonderfully calm, supportive, knowledgeable, and concise with his explanations and recommendations. He’s very empathetic and his ability to hone in on your specific needs is awesome, he’s a great listener! My concerns were related primarily to my inability to do any strenuous exercise due to my current auto-immune flare up (sore joints, fatique) and and chronic shoulder issues that make simple tasks challenging. His recommendations for diet and mild exercises was simple and reassuring. I would give him 10 stars if that were an option!!

  24. Steve S (verified owner)

    Had an excellent coaching session with Stephen. He is super knowledgeable and really made some great suggestions to help me get started with the Carnivore diet.
    I highly recommend him and look forward to booking more sessions with him in the future.

  25. Tanya Ornelas (verified owner)

    Had my first coaching session and it really helped put me at ease about using this diet to address my health concerns. He was very good at explaining things so I understood.

    He explained about blood tests I was curious about, and the monitors I was considering. And answered some other questions I had about the value of exercise from a health perspective.

    I really wasn’t sure about the value of a coaching session, even with the first one being free. But it was helpful beyond my expectations, and Stephen was the perfect choice of a coach for me as I was primarily concerned about diabetes/pre-diabetes.

    I feel so much more confident now, both with the information I got today, but also knowing that I can have future sessions as I know I’ll have more questions and confusions as I proceed.

    In summary, he knows the science stuff, but he’s willing and able to break it down to the level I needed. He has experience and expertise to understand what I needed. My session exceeded my expectations and I’m planning a follow-up session in a couple weeks. Highly, highly recommended.

  26. Jasmin Gilliam (verified owner)

    I had a first session with Stephen and he answered some questions i had. He is very knowledgeable and kind.

  27. Bill Robinson

    Someone answered you regarding the lymphatic system.
    See the comment section on yesterday’s video:

  28. Shelly Mantel (verified owner)

    I’m very happy with the recommendations i received from Stephen. As an athlete he could understand and replay to my specific issues.

  29. Gary Miller (verified owner)

    After doing piles of research about low carb/carnivore online I finally decided to talk to a pro. That’s how I met Stephen. Our first call was more than I could have expected and I’m still a little shocked they don’t charge more for such an amazing service.

    Stephen covered every question (and I had plenty of them) in great detail. But he also asked his own questions and really took the time to get to know me, my goals, and my life. My goals like many are losing weight, getting my blood pressure in better shape, and overall wellness.

    What stood out about him most though was the simplicity of his approach. While he’s very well educated and can talk science, he makes it easy to understand and actionable. I came thinking I needed a pile of apps, supplements, trackers, etc… He cut through all that noise and helped with a simple plan to get started and adjust as we go.

    Stephen is not dogmatic in his approach either. You can clearly see he’s worked with a lot of different clients and customizes plans for each one. I just can’t say enough good things about Stephen and am looking forward to our next meeting.

  30. Joe (verified owner)

    Really cool friendly guy. Not the most confident person on cam but the dude was really chill and non judgemental. Will definitely contact again if I need help. 10/10.

  31. Kat (verified owner)

    Stephen, brilliant, as always! Thank you!

  32. Bill Gaffney (verified owner)

    I am a 4 year Keto dieter who wanted to take the next step towards Carnivore. I needed to understand in detail, about coffee and supplement usage along with other concerns I have read about. Stephen was well prepared and has a great understanding of the challenges and impacts. He absolutely put my apprehension to rest and answered every question succinctly. I highly recommend Stephen for anyone looking to take the next step in their dietary journey. Thanks.

  33. Meghan Stock (verified owner)

    I really enjoyed my coaching session with Stephen. He was very motivating and I feel very excited and positive about my decision to give this lifestyle a go. Stephen is a very good listener and it was great to be able to share my concerns and know they were heard and addressed.

  34. Jerry Brooks (verified owner)

    Stephen is very knowledgeable and easy to talk to and answer questions whether you or new to carnivore/meat based or been doing for awhile. I would recommend for all to take advantage of your free coaching session when joining meatrx. Was great discussing nutrition , blood work, sleep exercise and more. Thank you Stephen👍

  35. James K (verified owner)

    Another really great job! I was needing a confidence builder and that’s what I got! I have a High Coronary Artery Calcium Score just like Steven and with all the contradictory information out there I just needed to hear Steve’s success story on the carnivore diet one more time. Now I feel like I have renewed confidence to carry on. Thank you Steve!

  36. Kat Bacon (verified owner)

    Stephen’s knowledge base on many different health-related topics is impressive. It seems that no matter what questions I have, he either knows the right answer or can quickly research and find the information. More importantly, though, Stephen really cares and listens. His manner is confident, gentle and very supportive. Thank you, Stephen, for being there for us!

  37. Walt Childs (verified owner)

    Stephen is a very knowledgeable coach and I really enjoyed talking with him and getting his feedback. Feedback from someone who has spent years learning how to take care of the body is very important, and I can’t thank him enough for sharing his insights with me. I know it will help me succeed in my wellness goals.

  38. Nanci Smith (verified owner)

    I really enjoyed taking with Stephen. A very humble man and very easy to talk with. Very knowledgeable about the carnivore way of eating especially how to be successful on my carnivore journey. I was so encouraged to keep pressing on and the results will come. I needed help with physical fitness and Stephen gave me wonderful pointers. I totally recommend him as a coach that will inspire and support you along your journey. Respectfully Nanci Smith

    Stephen is very knowledgeable about the human anatomy and the mechanics of the body. Through the MeatRx community meetings, he has spent time to address my questions and offer help after learning I suffered with plantar fasciitis for over 20 years. He explained why I was suffering, why it hasn’t healed, and made suggestions of specific exercises, stretches, and other activities. I took his advice and within two months I have experienced such healing it is almost unbelievable, especially since I had tried so many other ways to fix this problem. I owe a debt of gratitude to Stephen for helping me to be pain free. Stephen is extremely knowledgeable and I would highly recommend him. So, to Stephen, I say thank you from the bottom of my heart (and feet)! 5 stars.

  40. Kathleen Connolly (verified owner)

    My coaching session with Stephen was a blessing. Beginning week 4 of carnivore, I was feeling very uncertain about this path since I was not seeing the results that I was looking for. I was having high blood sugars in spite of adhering to strict carnivore. He explained why this is likely happening. My pancreas is adjusting to new signals and how to handle insulin production in response to this new way of eating. His explanation was clear and concise and easy to understand.

    I felt so much better after talking to him and I am more committed than ever to healing my type 2 diabetes with a carnivore lifestyle. I am happy to say that yesterday and today I am beginning to see the results of my perseverance with slightly lower blood glucose. I feel confident and so glad I joined MeatRx and booked a coaching call with Stephen.

  41. Karen (verified owner)

    Stephen was very knowledgeable and had great advice for me to try. I would definitely recommend his coaching.

  42. Mandy adams (verified owner)

    Friendly, very informative on the reasons behind the change. Very positive and gives me weekly goals to see and feel the progress!

  43. Maranda adams (verified owner)

    Recommend as a coach due to the great length he goes to. He researches, he figures out what works best for you.

  44. Emma C (verified owner)

    I am delighted with my first session with Stephen. He was very easy to talk with and everything he shared was insightful and relevant to my concerns. He is also a great coach with just the right amount of compassion balanced with the truth of tough love. Stephen is very professional while still being completely down-to-earth. His extensive experience with converting from a more plant-based diet to Carnivore, and his scientific approach to solving problems makes him the perfect coach for me.

  45. Robert Porter (verified owner)

    Stephen is a good listener and gives very usable advice, based on his personal experience and the extensive training and credentials he has acquired. A very qualified and effective coach.

  46. Gina Tuel (verified owner)

  48. Kasey Nordeen (verified owner)

    Great coach. Knowledgeable, helpful, encouraging.

  49. Paula Lucas (verified owner)

    Stephen is really good at listening to the problems and addressing them. He brought up an insight that I should have been aware of, but wasn’t, and that led me to an improved approach that is helping so far. He considers all aspects of the person. I couldn’t have asked for anyone better.

  50. Jack Schneider (verified owner)

    Stephen was a pleasure to have a session with. I felt like I was treated as an individual person. We reviewed my blood work, exercise routine, and goals. The advise was useful. I didn’t feel like he tried to push anything on me. The cost felt like money well spent. I would recommend him as a coach.

  51. Collin M (verified owner)

His background is diverse and well rounded – from food to exercise and beyond. I have already scheduled another session and am looking forward to it.
