Location: Sydney, Australia
Diet History: Fasting + Keto for 6 years, 95+% Carnivore since Jan 2020. Have some experience with vegan, vegetarian, paleo and others.
I’ve had personal experience with: Weight loss, pre-diabetes, high blood pressure, high blood glucose, high cholesterol, dark skin patches, skin tags, lower back pain, sciatica, depression
Track Record: I lost 29kg (64 lbs) to hit my goal weight and cured all of my conditions (except back pain/sciatica, which still have occasional flare-ups). When it comes to coaching, I use a practical, methodical but adaptable approach (probably) born from my background as an engineer 🙂

– Strength Training
– Balancing diet around a hectic lifestyle (e.g. military life or a busy family life)
Hey there, my name’s Vin and I want to let you know that I’ve been there. I was the fat kid growing up, the guy none of the girls payed attention to in high school and eventually I was the guy sitting in a doctors office being told that I had pre-diabetes, destined to go the same way as the rest of my family (in which chronic disease might as well be a tradition).
I also want you to know that it is possible to turn your life around. I went from 94kgs (209lbs) at 167cm tall (5’6”) to 65kgs (143lbs), fit, and serving my country in the Air Force just a few years later. Plus, my pre-diabetes is in total remission now along with the rest of my conditions apart from minor back pain.
It all came down to having the right information about diet and exercise – not the tired old jibber-jabber like “just eat less and move more!”. In my case though, it took a whole lot of reading, self-experimentation, failure, and the insights from awesome folks like Gary Taubes, Dr Jason Fung and of course Dr Shawn Baker. It was years before I found the final piece of the puzzle for me – the Carnivore lifestyle. But for you, it doesn’t have to be that hard. That’s pretty much why I joined the awesome team here, so I can transfer the hard-won lessons I’ve learned to the rest of the community.
Please get in contact with me if you need any help getting your own health and fitness in order – I would love to assist you in turning your own life around, just like I did.
Look forward to talking with you – and to having some fun along the way!
I can definitely recommend Vin.
I met Vin pre-MeatRX and he has been providing advice for some time now.
He is very practical, very approachable and has a very high level of commitment to his clients.
He is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to not just the carnivore diet, but all diets in general. He has a deep understanding of the way the human body reacts to differing macros and exercise levels and can translate those into lay terms that are easy to relate to.
More than anything, Vin is extremely empathetic to the physical and mental effects of poor diet and exercise regimes, as he himself has experienced a plethora of fad diets and exercise plans.
Essentially, he knows what works.

Excellent experience, conversation, learning and support with Vin. His reporting of his growing up with a weight and sweet tooth problem resonated with me. Vin provided useful strategies for getting on track with Carnivore and helpful options, menu planning and ideas to cope with busy work schedule and maintaining stable energy, not succumbing to sugar cravings and putting an end to the 3 pm “slump.” Vin is highly recommended as a Coach, he brings a positive attitude and inspiring energy to the table. Oh, he’s got a super cute Cavapoo dog too! Looking forward to talking to Vin again for support as needed, thanks Vin!

It’s now been two months since my initial session with Vin and all I can say he has been nothing but supportive along this journey so far. With a few tweaks here and there and some shocks along the way, I have now lost 12.8kg on my weight loss journey so far.
I highly recommend Vin for anyone as he is knowledagble and supportive along the way.

Vin has considerable experience and insights to share, not just from a theoretical background but from having experimented and learned from his own journey.
He is extremely knowledgeable about a range of subjects including diet, exercise, and physiology; and is able to translate that experience in an easy to understand manner.
