In July 2021 I will have finished my second degree and will have a BSc in health, fitness and coaching.
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 meatrx.com 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.

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