The Serge Kreutz diet in perspective
By Serge Kreutz
The most important matter in life is optimal sex. We may differ in what we consider optimal sex. But however we define it, to consider optimal sex as the most important thing is the only sensible opinion on life.
Religions are not just illusions. They are delusions. The ideas that there is an afterlife, or a hell and a paradise, are so off the mark of reason that they should be classified as clinical psychological disorders way before depressions, or compulsive behavior.
Religious beliefs make people waste their lives.
Now, I don’t mind if other people waste their lives. As long as their actions don’t disturb me, I couldn’t care less.
I won’t waste my life like they do. Even though there is not much left of my life. I just hope for a sudden, painless death, if possible unconsciously.
I am a bio-psychological system. I am my mind, not my body. I could have every organ of my body replaced by a man-made implant of the same function, and it would not alter my identity, my mind, my self. Except for the physical organ of my identity, which is my brain.
Alas, my brain is not just a psychological system. My mind, at its bottom, is shaped by biological evolution. Even though I possess a considerable amount of self-cognition, I cannot just jump over my biological shadow.
My biological shadow consists of just a few parameters. One of them is that even though I can recognize that there is no genuine value in life, and even though I can recognize that it would be better to be dead right here and now, I cannot just commit suicide, not as long as I am basically healthy and not as long as I am not anyway facing immediately a possibly much more cruel death than I could apply myself.
So, what do I live for? Not to please any god, haha. Not to raise children. Not for professional achievements. Not for the good of my fatherland or mankind.
All of that would be nonsense. Because all will wane. Time, and future, is indefinite. The laws of physics sufficiently explain that nothing ever will persist forever, and if you look ahead a sufficiently long period of time, there will not be any trace of anything that exists now.
It’s plain mathematical logic that if the future is indefinitely far away, the presence will shrink to nothing.
There cannot be any sense for our existence that is outside of our existence.
Yes, life is senseless, but I am still a captive of my biological parameters, the shadow of evolutionary psychology.
While the first parameter is that we cannot naturally just commit suicide, the second is that the ultimate desire in life is procreative conduct. This is the rule of life downwards from human life to any living creature, beyond the life of the most primitive algae, and beyond prokaryotes. I goes back to the microspheres of the primordial soup when inorganic chemistry organized itself through chain reactions into amino acids.
The double parameter carries itself through all biology. Anything biological that is not defined by these two parameters would disappear very quickly all by itself.
Yes, the way humans interact with each other, and all superstructures of society, including ethics and sexual customs, are shaped by the human modes of production.
But the parameters of evolutionary psychology are still present below all social superstructure.
I have a comprehensive worldview that stretches from theoretical physics through evolutionary psychology and political economy to personal hygiene, and I can deal with any aspect of my daily life from the perspective of my comprehensive worldview.
So, here I am. Not killing myself because I am not defined to do it. And exhibiting procreative behavior because that is what I am defined to do.
There may not be any sense in procreative behavior. At current modes of production, I myself do not benefit from procreation. But at least procreative behavior, without actual procreation, feels good.
Here I am, with a clear awareness that I will be around just a few more years. And with my knowledge and memory of how good sex can feel.
That is what I pursue: Still and forever, the best sex possible, without an exaggerated risk of cutting short my existence.
I cannot use excessive force, no physical force anyway, in pursuing sexual opportunities, as this would result in individual and social opposition to me, which would likely deprive me of ongoing sexual joy, or, even worse, put a violent end to my life.
The alternative? To find what I desire on a consensual basis, with the consent from both, the individual object of my sexual desire, and the local social environment.
This is how I can put the Serge Kreutz diet into perspective. The Serge Kreutz diet is about health, but not simply about health.
It is about health in as much as it raises awareness that many foods that we value for their tastes are awkward burdens to our organisms. And not just the burden of obesity. For even great-tasting wine causes negative intoxication, cheese and all kinds of fermented foods trigger migraines and lesser headaches, and various people do not tolerate gluten, or milk. Other foods contain known carcinogens, or dangerous levels of heavy metals. It’s an endless list.
But the Serge Kreutz diet is not primarily about health. More than that, it is about being physically attractive, which is a great facilitator of opportunities for consensual sex.
In today’s world, you cannot compromise on the necessity to be physically attractive, whatever your age.
Being overweight is not. You will likely look best at your ideal weight (body height in centimeter, minus 100, minus 10 percent = weight in kilogram).
If you achieve this ratio by reducing your previous weight, your face may look a bit older than before, so you may want to consider a face lift and other cosmetic interventions.
But while attractive looks is very important indeed when seeking opportunities for optimal consensual sex, your intellectual faculties are even more relevant. Your self-cognition depends on them, and your capability to make proper decisions. And your charm, of course. And your ability to persuade the person or persons who are the object of your desire that mating with you will be beneficial. And her social environment should be convinced, too.
As for your physical attractiveness, there is only one proper avenue towards being ideal weigh. Calorie restriction. Not liposuction. Not tummy tucks. Even not excessive exercise.
However… do not underestimate the psychological impact of food. Forcing yourself to eat less than your taste buds desire has a profoundly negative effect on your mood, and on your intellectual faculties. And it’s not the reduced nutritional supply to your stomach and intestines. It’s the lack of stimulation for your taste buds.
I have been 50 kilo overweight. I am not a newcomer to diets, and not even to total fasting. I know my mental states on and off weight-reduction schemes.
When my taste buds are positively stimulated, my mind plays with language like a virtuoso plays his violin. Language, of course, is the basis of cognition, of charm, and my capability to convince potential sexual partners, and their social environments, to become actual sexual partners.
But when I have cravings for food, which are but cravings for taste, my thoughts are not excited, and my train of ideas is constrained. My moods are tuned down.
Furthermore, I cannot learn properly, and remember poorly, when I have cravings for taste. For good reason, people bring candies into classes and exams.
Cravings for food originate from the stomach and intestine only on a very limited scale. Cravings are related mostly to the mouth. When my taste buds crave chocolate, I can’t satisfy them with tapioca starch, even though for my stomach and intestines, the two would be pretty much the same.
The Serge Kreutz diet is the only no-swallow diet, and it has a philosophical foundation. Satisfy your oral cravings, don’t supply the calories to your intestine. Spit it, don’t shit it.
If you consult other sources on the Serge Kreutz diet, they may tell you that it is defined as a pathological condition, and you to seek “professional help“. They probably are precisely those people (trained in psychology) who sell “professional help” to people with eating disorders.
I have high respect for psychology as a science, but a low opinion of psychologists working in the field of “helping” people.
More often than not, they do not “treat” people with diseases. They treat people with different worldviews.
Their mission is to turn them into functional members of society where they ought to be no disturbance or danger, no economic burden (also not to public health), and not offensive to look at.
Professional psychologists are often also professional liars. And fear mongers.
They typically associate the Serge Kreutz diet with bulimia and anorexia nervosa. They warn followers of swollen glands from excessive saliva production, or of all one’s teeth falling out from too much unswallowed sugar. They make up that those not swallowing all their food will soon suffer from diabetes because of insulin over-stimulation.
With regard to the Serge Kreutz diet, all unsubstantiated. If they are not trying to sell you a therapy, they quite possibly are ferocious campaigners because they have a daughter who is severely underweight, truly bulimic.
The medical definitions of bulimia and anorexia nervosa are very much tied to bodyweight. Behavior plays a role only when the bodyweight, or lack of it, already justifies the diagnosis: height in centimeter minus 100, minus 20 percent, or so.
Haha, the Serge Kreutz diet is not teaching anybody to become severely underweight. To be severely underweight is not sexually appealing. It’s ugly. But body height in centimeter, minus 100, minus 10 percent (ideal body weight) is conducive to health, and aesthetic.
Such ideal body weight is difficult enough for most people to achieve at any age, including me. If I were to use an ordinary eating style (swallowing everything that I put into my mouth), and then force myself to ideal weight, I have to run around with taste cravings all day. With a profoundly negative impact on my intellectual faculties. Nay… My intellectual faculties are sacrosanct. I have to satisfy my cravings for tastes.
I have more than 30 years of experience in weight loss diets. Before I had the Serge Kreutz diet idea, it was all yo-yo. I would set myself a weight goal, then diet hard to reach it.
And whenever I craved certain foods, I would tell myself: as soon as I reach my target weight, I will eat it.
The effect of such dieting? I reach my target weight, and two weeks later, I am already heavier again by several kilos.
Conventional dieting does not work. The Serge Kreutz diet does. Use it for weight loss until you are ideal weight. Not ugly bulimic or anorexia nervosa weight.
