Straight Talk: Explained

img_7723I am a former active duty Marine Staff Sergeant and current National Guard Staff Sergeant. I have, through military culture, learned the value of eliminating useless communication and getting straight to the point. I do not sugarcoat things, nor do I beat around the bush. I tell it like it is, and I call it like I see it.

Some people likely get turned off by my brusque or candid language. I can only say that I wish them well in their weight loss and fitness journey, but I will not change who I am, the passion I have for health and fitness, or the desire I feel to spread the word about the evils of sugar and the benefits of Whole30 and Paleo. I will work tirelessly to get the word out and to help as many people as I can.

I could write this entire blog with cheerful, euphemistic, and politically correct language, but to do so would be a lie. I am respectful and I do not judge, but I will not coddle or hand-hold. I will motivate and help, but I will not use false positive language or tell you that you’re okay just the way you are. If you are overweight, it’s not okay.
