This onboarding page aims to onboard all readers and visitors new to this entire Concept Initiative, the blog and manuscript ~ its intent(s), vision, and overall summation. The "Concept Initiative" here refers to any(one) of the following repertoire or subproject(s) This Author (AW / Andrewwiguna.com) undertook circa 2015:

  1. The "Book" or "parent manuscript" ~ Humility Through Frugality (2015). Nutritional-Humility.me (2017~present).
  2. The "Technical" Accompanying Manuscript Dietary Advanced Glycation End Products (2017~ present).
  3. This Blog and its array of articles on both the alternative and/or "decentralised" nutritional science experiences amidst themes of Economics / structural inaccessibility.
This Page is subject to periodical revisions overtime for readability. 

1/8 Under Construction and Under Rebrand

The entire Book / Parent Manuscript Nutritional Humility™  has been officially declared under rebranding-in-progress.

However readers are welcome to download a prior / legacy version by clicking here. 

The simplified rationale behind this need for entire rebrand, since 2020 was to evolve; both visually and philosophically ~ all its manuscript contents by re-writing, almost paragraph-by-paragraph basis to implore "holistic" (scientific + philosophic) autonomy.

For more information on the above rationale, please visit the official Rebrand Notice. As well as also ~ the accompanying video message announcement in Youtube®. 

2/8 What This Concept Initiative offers.

This "Concept Initiative" represents factual, on-going life account of nutritional frugality under structural theme of Inaccessibility, alongside contemplative assertion against authoritarianism amidst mainstream literatures both scientific and non-scientific journalism surrounding nutrition, health and wellness.

Since its many rough inception(s) since 2013 and particularly December 2015 under former title for the Parent Manuscript  "Humility Through Frugality", everything the readers see and/or interact remains entirely for free without monetary donation or charitable request ~ for open viewing, reviewing and sharing. Since its beginnings absolutely no monetary incentive has derived from all such time off This Author's (AW) own discretion and availability that has elapsed maintaining, sustaining and evolving this Concept Initiative's content - its books, the blog writing, and its Youtube® Channel.

This overall Concept Initiative, alongside its Book offers contemplative practice(s), but neither its account and/or its ideas are intended to be clinically  "prescriptive".  It does not offer templated "advices" for "treating" any chronic illnesses. Nor does it proclaim confidence to replace any existing institutionalised prescription/s beyond This Author's own (AW™) indemnity as scrutinising member of public. Read the Limited Indemnity Disclosure here.

Nevertheless not withstanding conventional challenges as a sole content creator and aspiring author, this overall Initiative aims to facilitate and empower dialogues, thoughts and/or experiences amidst alternative side(s) to nutritional science, encompassed within themes of inaccessibility and Economics.

To date, a little more than 300+ scientific references have been included in the parent manuscript Nutritional Humility™. This not only support whatever This Author (AW™)'s deems or claims behind all implorations, but nonetheless do not permit readers to dismiss / further their own research appealing their's own nuances. 

Please read the Limited Indemnity Disclosure to acquaint with limitations and responsibilities that you, readers and visitors alike, must likewise self-indemnify both in mind and body.

3/8 What "nutritional" advice does The Book / Parent Manuscript preaches?

It is much easier disclosing what the Parent Manuscript does not preach. Namely, virtuous paternalism to then politicised ~ scientific Gospel. Broken down as follows:

  1. "Everything in moderation".
  2. "Just eat 'healthy'".
  3. "Just eat a 'balanced' diet".
  4. "Epidemiology is the rule. No exceptions."
  5. "Just be normal. No exceptions."

This Book / Parent Manuscript encourages instead ~ scientific introspection in however unorthodox ways, methodology or principle of nutrition that appeals to a reader's own circumstance be it for self-experimentation, tinkering, journalling and/or philosophic pursuit(s) on top of frugality.  Cyclical Ketogenic principles, Intermittent Fasting, to name a few thus are proposed here as the so called sustenance, strategies and/or principle(s).

Many so called influencers (no names need mentioning) subconciously fixate on aesthetic "vanity". This Concept Initiative indeed admits such to be a pleasing archetype of health & fitness. However, it is not its prime focus, alone and that Survivorship Bias becomes a likely unintended consequence and reception amongst those yearning for contemplative content, beyond sensationalism.

Hence, to distinguish this Concept Initiative from its saturation - Readers are instead presented with a wealth of philosophical themes through the following four (4) governing message(s):

  • Fair. Frugality. Authenticity. Individuality. Resilience.
  • Pair. Privacy. Agency. Identity. Resolve. 
  • Self. Sentience. Exposition. Liberty. Fortitude.
  • Mine. Minimalism. Interpretation. Nutrition. Embodiment. 

What readers may or may not take from reading This Book remains entirely up to them in however or whatever ways they integrate such a principle, influence, or train-of-thought elsewhere in life. 

4/8 Questions Meet Answers Format.

The Book / Parent Manuscript was not envisioned as a long “thesis”. Instead, it is delivered in a Questions-Meet-Answers format. This allows a conversational yet stern ~ tonality. Particularly reserved early on during Chapters #1 to #4. As well as #7 and #8. Readers are welcome to skip much of these verbose philosophical “debate”. But in doing so, an understanding of Nutrition’s relativity to wider concerns of Sociology remains missing.

Nutrition alone is ration. But Philosophy helps express that further to become rationale. Hence, This book is “food”. Ration for both Thoughts and Science.

Where / How shall we begin?

5/8 Read and witness the "Live-It-Forward" Gratuity Model.

For many years since its inception (circa. 2015) this website does not expect arithmetic “Likes” as gratitude. It is however optional, but ultimately not required. Neither the Book nor its Blog ask for monetary donations. Nor its Youtube® Channel asks its viewers to "follow" as "subscribers".

However should anything that this Project compels its readers and visitors, then they are encouraged to donate their's own thoughts in gratified authenticity. Through sincere commenting and/or writing. Hence, "Live-It-Forward" ~ despite oft-remarked as farewell or parting statement ~ deeply portrays a  message for continuous imploration of anecdotes and N=1 experiences as yet another biological undertaking for contemplations. As opposed to instrumental thanksgiving of "Likes" which is  prone for inflationary interpretations.

6/8 Visit and read the various blog articles.

Nutritional Humility™ concerns beyond topics of Nutrition. It is a contemplative space of its author (Andrew Wiguna) upon many nuanced subjects. From Veganism, the Mouse Utopia Experiment, and Survivorship Bias. 

Worthy to read are the Annual Food For thoughts. Comprising of detailed insights on the Author's progressive experiences. Through supplementation, nutrition, psychology, and fitness training. All spanning across each entire year. Readers and visitors will be assured to find days, if not weeks of informative reading. Such intensity of information and experience(s) they may not find anywhere else.

7/8 Transparent revision notices.

Nutritional Humility™ distinguishes itself against many of its commercialised peers. Never a "one-off" completion. It remains subjective for pragmatic revisions for progressivity and clarity overtime. 

This Author (AW™) transparently admits he is decorated with no journalist or writing experience. But the (thousands) of hours spent re-editing many years since 2015 remains both sincere and ongoingThose hours is just for the book alone. Not counting the month/s spent on the Motion Graphic design promos'. Nor phe time spent on writing the blog articles. 

8/8 MeWe® Social Media Channel.

As of March 2019, Google+ no longer becomes active. All content have been migrated to MeWe®; a privacy-centric social media platform. Going forward, this will serve as frontal news hub for this Project. As well as that of the author's own personal social network.


Thank you.

Your viewership and written thoughts on this Initiative are appreciated. None of this is supported by third party. All this is written, designed, maintained by one (1) person alone. More importantly ~ all this is a work in progress. Changes come and go. 

Perhaps years later from now - this Project is a stepping stone for something else much bigger.
