Scientific Frugality, Privacy, Authenticity, Individuality and Resilience.

Decentralised Nutritional Science. Through the lens of Structural Violence. 

Are you living towards yourself? Or away from yourself?

Questions-Meet-Answers, as well as dissertation on explorative possibilities towards metabolic, physiological and philosophical Autonomy. This Book is the non-fictional segment / dissertation arm of the parent concept branding initiative This Is™ Nutriments; by Andrew Wiguna /

An independent critical examination of our present crisis towards scientific Authoritarianism. An encouragement for scientific self-authentication, rather than collective submission.

Insights on Ketogenic interventions from SKD to CKD,  Intermittent Fasting, before then discussions and applying these alternative concepts amidst involuntary themes ~  Structural Inaccessibility and Economics.

Anyone who pursues and seeks alternative sustenance through decentralised nutritional concepts. While the nuanced chapters on Ketogenic Interventions (among others) seems overwhelming – the broad array of topics of This Book remains assuredly contemplative, distinct and varied beyond yet just another “Health / Fitness” how-to tome. 

Where frugality meets nutritional science and philosophy. 

This Book / Concept Initiative ~ is beyond just nutritional “frugality”. It encourages scientific explorations at interpreting what “enough” means; deeply rooted from both nutritional and philosophical discussion. 

"I would rather have questions that cannot be answered. Rather than answers that cannot be questioned."

Richard Feynmand

This Book reminds many things we oft take for granted. Nutrition is one such realm. 

Nutrition is the symbiosis of Reason. Nutrition or to nurture therefore is manifestation of all “Ration” (food/nutrition) into “Rationality”. 

More than just a book on “saving money”, nutritional frugality, intermittent fasting and/or cyclical “dieting”, This Book both presents and facilitates for its readers alternative explorations and decentralised education towards scientific Autonomy. Much of its contemplation centres around self-authentications against authoritarian turbulences, mandates or overrides.  

Our present Status Quo believes “Science” should be held primarily within imposed, statistical and figurative ~ consensus. 

This Book proposes an “Open” ended strategy through alternate nutritional concepts that ultimately depends on readers’ self-indemnity and of all things  “ownership” to ably self-distinguish what works and what doesn’t – by answering to nobody else but his/her own experimentations, experiences and self-journalling. Sooner or later, scrutiny of our present status quo; be it surrounding “health” and/or “wellness” ~ is inevitable. 

Quite the opposite. It encourages readers to authenticate their own scientific privacy and agency ~ for contentment amidst themes of Economics.  To do this, exclusion is inevitable. And so too ~ the legitimacies surrounding  “refeeding” . Beyond “binging and purging”; it encourages self journalism in ways that prepares one to step into the alternative wilderness of nutritional science; arguably a more awakening call ~ than remaining awashed in our paternalistic (or institutional) ~ “normalcy”.  

This concept initiative attempts at reconciling ancestral themes of Economics (scarcity), to thereby reframe the individual renewed perspective ~ over the things one have had for granted.  This Book attempts at discussing “Fitness” not only through lens of Structural inaccessibility / Economics, but propose various pragmatic ways at addressing them.

The 300+ references collected throughout years of writing this Book alas; can only do “so much” to move a lay pedestrian. This Author (AW) nevertheless  reiterates that nothing This Book suggests is of absolute “clairvoyance”. Contingencies amidst frugality must be researched at readers own end. Health and/or fitness remains an individual and anecdotal calling and “choice”. No amount of “food coaching”, or even “dietician” indemnity(s) may ever confide 100% panacea to a patient or client. 

300+ Scientific references. Manually sourced from all public domains.

All scientific citations and research are re-sourced directly out of existing (freely publicised) domains. This Book is not aimed to be "conclusively" final of any hypothesis. Both supportive and contradictory research collateral, are sought and presented to the best of This Author's ability, legality and indemnity as member of public.

Contemplative. Not Authoritative.

Many topic(s) within this Book are likely received as controversial against the status quo. Cyclical Ketogenic principles, Fasting and Refeedings, to name a few. It represents strategies at embracing self-experimental / Self-Authenticity journeys of Nutritional Science. In spite of concrete scientific references attached This Book is not envisioned to replace existing institutional supervisions or currently approved scientific journalism. For any studies that require full purchases; only the frontal abstracts are considered.

An entire solo work of one (1) Individual. Completely not for profit.

This Book and concept branding initiative (This Is™ Nutriments) are made possible via years of sole effort. Spanning multiple thousand(s) of personal hours invested researching, and curating various collateral on the subjects of Nutritional Science, Sociology and Philosophy. The Author (AW / has had all but only humble few Certificate levels of accredited academia studying; on top of existing career profession (Graphic Design & Creative). This is to exude resilient proof of career diversification attempt(s) amidst existing Structural Impositions.
