Dana S

(57 customer reviews)


Hi.  My name is Dana (pronounced DAN-nuh).

I am a recovered sugar addict. Sugar addiction impacted my relationships to others and food, and took a toll on my body. My 5’2” frame became morbidly obese tipping the scale at 255 pounds and 54% body fat.  By going carnivore and focusing on my health, I have personally resolved or drastically improved the following issues:

  • Extreme cravings, sugar addiction, and uncontrollable eating (sneaking food)
  • Mental depression and anxiety (at times severe)
  • Mental fog and memory issues
  • Leaky gut and IBS
  • Joint pain, plantar fasciitis, arthritis
  • Auto immune disease  – Skin issues (rashes, eczema, Lichen Planus, Lichen Sclerosis)
  • Yo-yo dieting (Raw Vegan, Keto, Paleo, Low fat, low calorie, plus about a dozen others)
  • Fatigue and body pains
  • Fatty liver, sluggish gallbladder
  • Insulin resistance – pre-diabetes
  • Edema and inflammation
  • Hormone imbalances (Endometriosis, PCOS, dense breast tissue)
  • B12 deficiency anemia
  • Symptoms of food intolerance including sinus issues and headaches
  • Adult acne
  • Excess body fat

Before carnivore I was plagued by constant unhealthy thoughts of food and I felt like I was either planning or preparing something to eat just to make it through the day.  I struggled with hunger and satiety.  My health issues persisted and as soon as I got off a diet plan my weight would rapidly return with extra.

Since 2017, I have been learning about and incorporating fasting.  I am experienced in intermittent fasting or timed eating, and in extended fasting.  In September of 2018 I started my carnivore journey from casual to strict and everything in between. There have been ups and downs along the way but I have learned so much.  I feel fantastic and it is freeing on so many levels.

I am thankful to be able to lend my knowledge from personal experience and training to help others.  This way of eating is very individual to each person.  My goal is not only to help you find what works best for you, but also to support you along the way.

    I had a great first session with Dana today. She made sure to answer all of my questions and gave me some really great suggestions for starting my carnivore journey!

  4. Kim Richardson (verified owner)

    I met with Dana for my first session this week and I’ve already booked follow up sessions. She’s easy to talk to, funny, knowledgeable and gave me great ideas and challenges as I restart my carnivore woe. I read a lot of the coaches bios and wanted someone with experience in some of the same things that I struggle with. I highly recommend Coach Dana but greatly recommend to anyone who’s new to try a coaching session. Having someone to talk to is such a big help!

  5. Stephanie Woods (verified owner)

    Dana is very knowledgeable and helpful. She really listened to our questions and helped us tailor our program to fit our specific needs! My husband and I both started carnivore with her help and she was very accessible and easy to talk to about everything! I highly recommend Dana as a coach!

  6. Raymond Woods

    My wife and I both started carnivore together and had a lot of questions. Dana was so easy to talk to. She was very knowledgeable and helped us make a food plan work for our needs! I really like working with Dana and recommend her to anyone who wants to do carnivore!

  7. Tonya Furr (verified owner)

    Today was my first session with Dana and it was wonderful!! She was very helpful and insightful. She saw deeper than what was just on the surface. Thank you Dana!! For the first time I truly believe I can do this and that is thanks to you. Your help and support, so from the bottom of my heart I thank you!!

  8. Beth (verified owner)

    Don’t wait another day for coaching. It’s SO helpful. Dana understands what I am going through and has given me practical advice that has made all the difference. I am such an emotional eater, addicted to sugar/carbs and felt so hopeless… could I ever get back on track? I have eaten carnivore before and completely fell off the wagon due to stress. I felt way better eating carnivore but couldn’t seem to get back there. I was tired of trying and tired of being alone in the struggle. Dana is on your side and she’s a phenomenal encourager. I wish I had found her long ago! Having someone who gets it and doesn’t judge is so helpful. I now know that I need to trust the process, lean on Dana and follow her advice- and I’ll get to a much healthier place. I highly recommend Dana as a coach!

  9. Dominique (verified owner)

    Dana is kind, knowledgeable and so generous. She is encouraging and eager to help. She was well prepared and she gave me great tips to implement on a daily basis. I look forward to our next session.

  10. Nanette Ontimare (verified owner)

    Thanks Dana for a great session last night. It was my first session, but you inspired me that I will be able to overcome my sugar/carb addiction if I just trust the process. I thought I would be able to achieve my goal doing carnivore WOE on my own. Just realized that I needed a coach to get me started the right way and not make mistakes along the way. Thanks for all the suggestions and for answering my questions. Looking forward to our future sessions.

  11. Laura Benson Pfeufer

    I am so grateful to Dana for helping me figure out my health concerns during an instant coaching. She was genuinely concerned and helped guide me in the right direction. I would highly recommend her coaching and so appreciate her advice and following up with me!

    I have been seeing Dana for a few weeks now and it has been wonderful. She truly goes above and beyond. Thank you Dana for all of your help!

    Had a fantastic first call and I’m really looking forward to working with her long term to achieve success in this way of life.

    I’ve seen Dana twice. I’ve been Carnivore for 2 years, so I know quite a bit. Trust me, Dana knows more. I was very happy both times I met with her. I got the support, encouragement and information I needed. Dana has the knowledge and communication skills to be a very good coach, which she is. I highly recommend her.

    Coaching is key!!

  22. Jeff K (verified owner)

    Dana is a fantastic coach and was the key to me getting successfully started on a carnivore diet. She provides structure, guidance, encouragement, and accountability…and has so many useful strategies and tips. It’s still early days for me, but I’m confident that I’ll be successful going forward. Thank you, Dana!!

  23. Carter Coe (verified owner)

    Dana goes far above and beyond the call of a carnivore coach. She approaches coaching with passion and a desire to serve others that is admirable. Dana delivers effort and knowledge to be expected from a highly-trained nutrionist. I highly recommend Dana if you are looking for someone to support you and guide you through this lifestyle. Worth way more than $17.99 per session.

  24. Julie (verified owner)

    I really enjoyed visiting with Dana. She seemed very knowledgeable on my issues as she has dealt with some of them herself. She was very friendly and helpful. I have booked my next session already and look forward to having her help me

  25. crystal johnston (verified owner)

    Great calls! Dana keeps me honest and is really helping me on my plan toward getting healthier.

  26. Alina de los Santos (verified owner)

    My first session with Dana was great. She goes way beyond the call of duty in order to help me conquer my sugar addiction. Dana is incredibly supportive and warm-hearted. She gave me many strategies to deal with my addiction. It’s great having her as my guide in my journey to conquer food addiction and emotional eating.

  27. Charles Polanski (verified owner)

    I had a great session on 3/31/21. Dana gave me a detailed form to fill out to prep for our session that got me thinking about how to get the most of our 30 minute session. I am brand new to the carnivore diet and still learning about it a bit more before either transitioning or going in all meat all the time. Dana helped me think out what my next steps should be, some simple actions to take, and some principles to follow when on the carnivore diet. Thanks, Dana!

  28. Donald Norton (verified owner)

    Great attitude and a generally positive demeanor. Excellent communication skills.0

  29. Alina de los Santos (verified owner)

    I had my 4th session with Dana and she is so great. She keeps me accountable and helps me deal with cravings, social situations and gives me tips to make tasty meals. She is funny and great to talk to. It’s great to know that I can count on her along this journey and she gives me the confidence I need to deal with challenges along the way.

  30. Jenny Tovey (verified owner)

    I am really enjoying my sessions with Dana. She gives me lots of info and offers small adjustments that I can do throughout the day.
    Most important for me was to have someone to hopefully hold me accountable. She totally holds me accountable, she listens and she really wants me to be successful.
    I feel like I can reach out to Dana if I’m struggling with cravings or struggling in general. Thank you Dana!

  31. Alina de los Santos (verified owner)

    I’ve been having regular sessions with Dana and her coaching has been key to manage my cravings and crab addiction. Dana is very funny, knowledgable and a great listener. She goes way beyond the call of duty to help me stay consistent and overcome my addictions.

  32. Lisa Finta (verified owner)

    Dana is great! This was my first coaching session and I found her to be kind and very understanding. She gave me ideas on how to get started, how to fight cravings and to make sure I am eating enough. I enjoyed my session and the knowledge she shared.

  33. Chris Hamilton (verified owner)

    Dana is awesome because she’s very passionate about helping people with this lifestyle. And she works to understand your particular situation and what you are struggling with and what you are trying to do. I recommend her without hesitation to anyone looking to eat this way.

  34. Rita Block (verified owner)

    It was long overdue that I have someone to commiserate with. I chose Dana because of the similar challenges she has dealt with (listed in her profile). I found that, indeed, we have experienced the dreadful effects of inflammation.
    I felt unburdened by some conflict. Dana is forthcoming and succinct and my comfort level is such that I intend to move forward with more coaching. I have a bit more confidence in myself now that I have someone with the skills and knowledge as a resource!!

  35. Pam Bell (verified owner)

    I had my first session with Dana tonight and am very encouraged by Dana’s knowledge, compassion and plan she laid out for me.
    Having someone that is knowledgeable about the emotional eating and sugar issues is a huge help! I look forward to continuing on in the healing journey with a bit of help from Dana as I learn the best way to eat for my body and issues.

  36. Rita Block (verified owner)

    This was session 2. Dana is a quick study and offers resolve for challenges quite readily. I very much appreciate her kindness and empathy and yet keep a tone that I can relate to. I thought I could manage this on my own, but coach helps me simplify to make progress–clearly I was not able to do this solo!! It feels so much better having an awesome HUMAN resource available.

  37. Francie Epperson (verified owner)

    I had my first session with Dana yesterday. She was fabulous. I will definitely be working with her over time to keep myself on track. I feel like I left our session with specific things to do and an ‘accountability partner’ who would be there for me if I needed help. I have tried and failed to stick to carnivore over the past year and I have hope that this time, with Dana’s support, I can succeed.

  38. Karen McAleece (verified owner)

    I wanted to talk with Dana because of her history with food addiction and yoyo dieting. She was very helpful and gave me some excellent ideas for my own carnivore, weight loss journey. Dana is a compassionate listener and
    her suggestions were practical, sensible and doable. I was impressed with her knowledge and experience and was pleased that she cared enough to send me follow up materials that have proved to be very useful.
    Dana, I appreciate you and your passion for this way of eating. Thank you so much for your wisdom and your support.

  39. Rita Block (verified owner)

    3rd session today with Dana. It is surprising to me how basic and simple the carnivore lifestyle can be and yet I feel like a sponge gathering so much information from my coach. The thoughts and experiences of someone who has been living this way for awhile is perpetually helpful to me. I am grateful!!

  40. Dana McGlothlin (verified owner)

    Dana has been wonderful. I’ve had four weekly sessions so far, and just booked another month’s worth, so that is a ringing endorsement! She has been understanding and encouraging, yet when it’s been necessary she has called me on the areas where I am slacking and being my own hindrance to progress with this new way of eating. That is exactly what a coach should do, and on top of that she just cares very much about helping others be successful. I’m very thankful I have her in my corner!

  41. Patricia

    Dana is a wonderful coach! She will keep you accountable and really listens to your needs. Thankful I found her.

  42. Rita Block (verified owner)

    Another sincere endorsement! Four sessions and more to come–Dana is truly a godsend. I believe that by now (as I have for the past 2 years) I would have slipped up had to begin again had it not been for Dana and these sessions. There is no single way to navigate this lifestyle and Coach is a phenomenal resource for me……not one to give up, but not making progress, Dana’s guidance has helped me make progress!! AND I have hope. That is big for me and I am so grateful to have her in my otherwise fairly empty toolbox.

  43. Julie (verified owner)

    My first introduction to Carnivore and Dana clairified so many questions that I had. Her knowleged, kindness and support has encouraged me and given me hope for healing. I will be consulting with her on a regular basis as I pursue my carnivore journey. Thank you Dana!

  44. Slater Katz (verified owner)

    Dana was excellent! We just had our first session, and she is a wealth of knowledge. I feel fully equipped to start carnivore off again with a bang. Excited to continue coaching with Dana!

  45. Adrienne Edwards (verified owner)

    My first session with Dana was awesome!! I just booked 3 more sessions, to get more support from Dana over the next several weeks. I couldn’t ask for a more professional or helpful coach!

  46. Pamela Mendoza (verified owner)

    I had my first session with Coach Dana. As a beginner carnivore, I’m struggling to get started. She provided me with some concrete steps to help change the way I eat. We reviewed my health concerns and issues and she gave some great suggestions to help. When we were done, I felt empowered to move forward. I booked a couple of more sessions to help me stay on track. Thanks Dana!

  47. Linde

    Thank you Dana! I received a lot of helpful information from my session today. I chose Dana because I suffer from hypothyroidism, obesity and inflammation. I’m excited to continue to work with her on my carnivore journey. Thank you!!

  48. Lark Garr (verified owner)

    Thank you for being so accommodating. Your support, knowledge and insight is very helpful. Great suggestions on how to stop my chocolate cravings and find food freedom. You are the best! Talk to you soon.

  50. Heather Crimson (verified owner)

    Dana rocks! She has helped me to finally breakthrough my carb addiction that I would relapse into over and over…ugh!

    I really needed a compassionate but firm nudge from someone who’s actually been in my shoes and successfully overcome the emotional eating roller coaster.

    Her warmth, passion wisdom and knowledge combine into a powerful ally who I trust.

    In addition to all that goodness, I was surprised to receive a super helpful email after our session to reinforce and further support me!

    I look forward to my next session!

    She answered my questions about no gallbladder and what’s best to do without one.

  52. Marija Petrovic (verified owner)

    I met with Dana for the first time and she made me feel so comfortable and answered all my questions. I am glad I found her!

  53. Paul Regan (verified owner)

    I have had five meetings with Dana and plan to have more. Dana is very knowledgeable and provides valuable insight, advice and suggestions. She is not dogmatic and I feel encouraged and supported in finding my own way with the carnivore way of eating. Her style of coaching is a good fit for me.
    Whenever I finish a meeting with Dana, I feel very encouraged and motivated to continue.
    I highly recommend her as a coach.

  54. William S. (verified owner)

    Dana was a pleasure to speak with, knowledgeable, and very excited to provide me with some pointers/pathways to success. Dana’s follow-up email after our conversation was very thorough and included links to websites for additional resources. All in all a great experience and first step in my carnivore journey. Highly recommend.

    First meeting with great! So many suggestions and things to help. Really looking forward to continuing to work together. Thanks!

  56. Shay (verified owner)

    I’ve been working with Dana for 3 weeks and it’ s made all the difference. She meets you where you are and, without judgement, personalizes her coaching to meet your individual needs and goals. She offers clear and simple tactics to help you adjust to and maintain way of eating and her coaching has significantly helped me with my food addiction issues. On top of being skilled and professional, she is also kind and so easy to talk to. Thank you, for your passion, Dana!
