Rational eating / The Serge Kreutz diet

Being overweight is not sexually attractive, and avoiding it is an important attractiveness strategy. The Serge Kreutz Diet is a simple but highly effective approach for not being overweight. It is easy to follow and works for everybody. It is so logical that many people have an Eureka experience when reading about it.

The Serge Kreutz diet approach

Humans are intelligent beings, and even though some are more intelligent than others (and more arrogant than others), once such simple ideas have been expressed, they become commonplace fairly quickly.

The wheel as a means to transport load. The idea of expressing words as written representations of sounds. From Gutenberg to Einstein, simplicity is genius.

The idea of disconnecting sexual pleasure from procreation fits the scheme, though it can’t be singled out who came up with it first.

Even though our genes came up with the concept of sexual pleasure as a bait to ensure their propagation, we (humans in general) now have enough self-awareness to acknowledge sexual pleasure, minus procreation, as the primary sense-providing theme in our existence.

It’s time we apply the duality of motivation and function on our approach to food.

We are genetically programmed to seek out nutrition. Therefore, we all know what appetite for food is, just as we all know what sexual urges are.

Our cravings for food were invented by our genes as a method to supplies nutrition to a biological system that ensures the survival and procreation of our genes.

I am not my genes. I am not even my body. I am my mind. Yes, my mind only exists as long as my body functions. But I could replace each and every organ of my body, except for my brain, with an identically looking and identically working engineered spare part, and it would not change my mind.

My mind seeks out pleasures, sexually, and, to a lesser degree, culinarily. But I can dissociate the needs of my mind (pleasure) from the needs of my genes (procreation, nutrition).

What relevance does this have for my diet?

Easy.

I have to separate the joy of eating from calorie intake.

Excess calorie intake is a burden and a handicap, just as excessive procreative results (children) are.

We have to separate the pleasure of something from the biological functions.

And that is what I do with food.

The pleasure of food is in the mouth (or in the palate, if you prefer a more refined English). The pleasure of food is not in the stomach, and not in the colon.

What are the practical implications of all of this?

I enjoy Bordeaux in my mouth, not in my intestine, and, for that matter, not in my blood stream (alcohol disturbs the clarity of my thoughts).

I enjoy Stilton cheese in my mouth, not in my stomach, and, for that matter, not in the blood vessels of my head (the tyramines of cheese give me migraines).

I enjoy eating. I enjoy tastes. Creamy. Sour. Bitter. Sweet.

I enjoy all these tastes passing my lips, in between my teeth, on the tongue and gums, along the palate. Even in the throat.

But that’s it. I do not have taste receptors past the throat. When food reaches the stomach, it’s just chime. And if I just swallow what pleases my mouth, this chime is full of irritants.

I differentiate between the food that pleases my mouth, and the food that I put into my stomach to support a healthy organism.

I have sex for my mind, and I take precautions that this will not lead to an infantry regiment of infants.

I eat for the pleasure of it, but I take precautions that I will not put on more weight than what leaves me reasonably attractive.

Because I need reasonable attractiveness for my sexual pursuits.

The throat is my internal immigration checkpoint for food. Food that is conducive to my health is allowed to pass my throat.

And food that is for pleasure, after having excited my taste buds, goes back the way it came.

After I enjoyed it in my mouth… I spit it out.

It’s so easy.

Easier than what the Romans did during food orgies with chicken feathers.

Gorgonzola and port. Spicy curries and heavy tea. Black Forest and strawberries with cream. Coffee and cognac. My endless appetite.

But for my stomach, just some basic healthy food.

This is the Serge Kreutz diet. Short and precise: after you tasted it, spit it, don’t shit it.

The Serge Kreutz diet in perspective

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.

What is kreutzing food?

“Kreutzing food” is a post-modern eating style, based on the Serge Kreutz food philosophy.

The core idea of this food philosophy is that we ought to separate the nutritional function of food from the pleasure we derive from it.

This is totally equivalent to the separation of the procreational function of sexual intercourse from its joy.

For most post-modern humans (and even for those who are just modern), the procreational function of sexual intercourse is a minus, not a plus.

It is the same for food: the nutritional value of food makes people overweight, fat, and ugly, and even for those slim, the nutritional value of food often is a negative burden.

We have learned to avoid the procreational risk of sexual pleasure. Techniques include non-penetrative sex, coitus interruptus, condoms, birth control pills, and sterilization. And yes, many people are highly successful in separating the procreational function of sex from its pleasure.

Alas, they often don’t do a good job when it comes to food.

Overweight people everywhere.

And not just that: many illnesses, from the head (migraine) to the ass (diarrhea or constipation) are a direct result of people lacking the capability of handling, and mouthing, their food.

But actually, separating the nutritional function of food from the pleasure component is easy.

All pleasure sensations of food are in the mouth. The sensations of food in the further digestive system are neutral at best, and normally worse than that.

People have come up with all kinds of ideas to counter the negative impact of food: moderation, appetite-suppressing drugs, exercise to a level where injury is common, stuffing oneself with protein food, even gastric bypass surgery.

All inferior!

A simple behavioral modification does the trick: kreutzing food

“Kreutzing food” means: Enjoy the flavor of everything. No need to swallow. Discard into a plastic bag, not into your stomach.

Your stomach is not the trashcan for enzymatically degraded boluses that were delicious food before you chewed it.

You can enjoy all food. But spit it, don’t shit it!

Delicious cheeses, delightful wines. Chocolate or fruit with whipped cream.

You can eat as much as you want, anything you want. As long as you are kreutzing it.

This is your most important, most essential food knowledge. It has a fundamental impact on your life. That is why it is philosophy.

Overweight people really are just stupid. They lack the kreutzing knowledge.

3.2.2.3.5.5.5

Eating techniques

If we manage a problem in a clever manner, we can say that we have an appropriate technique of solving it.

If the appropriate technique involves machinery, then it becomes technical.

And if the technical solution is a complex system, then we speak of technology.

If the problem is obesity, whether on an individual or national scale, then it is obvious that those obese people and their governments do not have a solution, neither a technique, nor an appropriate technical application, and not a successful technology.

On an individual scale, what would I call people who cannot manage some basic functions of their lives (such as a body of healthy and aesthetic weight).

The opposite of smart. Dumb. Stupid.

Some people try a hightech approach. Liposuction. Tummy tuck. Surgical reduction of stomach size and colon length, a gastric bypass operation.

All nonsense, haha. For what go hightech if a simple technique is available that is much more efficient?

That simple technique is kreutzing food.

Kreutzing food means: you differentiate between food that you consume for its taste, and food you consume for digestion.

Your stomach is not a trash can. Food that you put into your mouth because you love the taste, may not be good for your health (even if only because it makes you fat). So, after having chewed it, discard the bolus not into your esophagus but a plastic bag.

Then just drink plain water.

It’s a behavioral gastric bypass. The Serge Kreutz eating technique. The Serge Kreutz food philosophy.

So simple, and so efficient.

I have written many articles where I have elaborated on this eating technique. What kind of foods are best suited for kreutzing, and the difference between kreutzing for weight loss and kreutzing for optimal gourmet pleasure. But the basics can be explained in one short sentence: Spit it, don’t shit it.

You will achieve ideal weight. Your weight will not come back. Guaranteed.

The kreutzing knowledge is all you need. No appetite suppressant, no liposuction. No tummy tuck. No gastric bypass.

Not even self-discipline in denying yourself all delicacies.

Only the kreutzing technique.

3.2.2.3.5.5.6

The Serge Kreutz diet guarantees optimal health

The basic idea of the Serge Kreutz diet is to differentiate between the pleasure of food and the nutritional value of food.

Most people in Europe and North America are confronted with an constant oversupply of food that mostly addresses potential consumers’ pleasure sensations.

We buy food and eat it because it feels good to have food in the mouth.

Yes, the pleasure is in the mouth.

The stomach and intestines have no taste sensations. Yes, the stomach does not want to be empty (drink plenty of water), but already just one step further, the intestines are more likely to react rather negatively on most foodstuffs, especially the delicious ones, as they more often are intestinal irritants, compared to simple foods like boiled rice .

After that, the liver does not want to be overwhelmed with nutrients, and obesity is a burden to anybody’s health.

And don’t forget that many of the swallowed foods can cause negative reactions, heartburn and allergies, or migraine, or insomnia, or elevated blood pressure, and yes, over some time, cancer, stroke, and heart attack.

Taste and other oral sensations are a plus of food, and beyond that, the effects of food are negative if more is supplied than needed for very basic energy requirements.

Remember, the life extension effect of low-calorie diets is well established.

But who wants to cope with food deprivation for years on end.

Me. And I am happy with it.

My mouth enjoys food to the fullest extend, and in substantial quantities. Just about anything that is appealing.

But I strictly control what makes it through my esophagus.

The ideal weight of a person is height in centimeter, minus 100, minus 10 percent.

My height is 182 cm, so my ideal weight is 74 kilogram. And that is what I am.

Easily. No effort. No disallowing my mouth what it wants to taste.

I just need plastic bags with my meals. After chewing my food, or rolling drinks in my mouth, the content of my mouth is discarded into a plastic bag, not my stomach.

Well, most of it. Because a small amount of food always slides to the throat, and from there into my stomach, together with the water I drink (several liters per day).

Therefore, those of my readers who want to use the Serge Kreutz diet for radical weight loss do not have to worry much about whether the Serge Kreutz diet is a zero-calorie diet.

Zero-calorie diets, of course, are not healthy. Zero-calorie diets also come with the risk of intestinal displacement. You should always take in some food.

The Serge Kreutz diet is not a zero-calorie diet. And it even is a balanced diet.

The small amounts of all food you eat will slide through your throat to your intestine, and that is about as much as you need on a Serge Kreutz weight-loss regimen.

***

3.2.2.3.5.5.7

Ideal weight forever

The Serge Kreutz food philosophy is for both dieters and gourmets what Charles Darwin’s principles of evolution are for biologists.

Both change everything.

Just as biology wasn’t the same after Charles Darwin, dieting and gourmet eating are not the same after Serge Kreutz.

You can summarize Charles Darwin in one sentence: different forms of life evolve from previous forms of life by natural and sexual selection.

You can also summarize Serge Kreutz in one sentence: differentiate between the nutrition value and the pleasure value of food, and be selective about what you pass to your stomach.

If the world adopts Serge Kreutz’ food philosophy, there will no longer be obese people.

Obesity is unnecessary and so easy to avoid for anybody who understands the Serge Kreutz food philosophy.

At the core is, as mentioned above, the differentiation between the nutritional value of food, and the psychological (pleasure) component.

Much has been written about the nutritional value of all different foods humans consume. I do not have to add anything to this, except a word of caution: as you aim to be of ideal weight (height in centimeter minus 100, minus 10 percent = weight in kilogram), any food that passes to your stomach has to be of limited quantity (some fruit every day, a few nuts, an egg).

Now, that doesn’t sound very satisfying. And indeed, it is not. It is also not very satiating.

But being overly satiated is negative from any perspective you look at it.

The long-term effect of constantly filling your stomach with foodstuff, and overloading your intestines with content is a myriad of problems associated with being overweight.

But even the short-term effects are no good. Many foodstuffs cause an irritation of the digestive tract, and there is a plethora of unhealthy components in many foods, many over time even with a cancer risk.

Stuffing yourself with food also suppresses testosterone, thus inhibiting libido, and slows down brain function, thus making you less intelligent.

Yeah, but I love food. And you do.

And Serge Kreutz fully recognizes this. According to Serge Kreutz, apart from sexual intercourse, our relationship with food is what makes our lives worth living.

And Serge Kreutz actually encourages you to indulge in food. Copious quantities. Orgies of taste.

Just follow one important advice: don’t discard into your stomach what your mouth enjoys. Discard into a plastic bag. Just drink (and swallow intentionally) plain water after the bolus has passed into a plastic bag.

Yes, you will feel satisfied after such a meal. For satisfaction from food is a quality that comes from the taste of food. And you have taste receptors only in your mouth, and the esophagus and all further organs of food digestion are void of taste receptors (thank God, because chyme tastes horrible, first like vomit, then like shit).

It is obvious that food-related satisfaction is a consequence neither of the nutritional value of food, nor of its effect of loading the stomach and further organs of the digestive tract.

If the satisfaction from food where related to either of the above two, we would all be eating optimally formulated silage, just as hogs.

Come on! Satisfaction from food comes entirely from the taste of food. Nothing else.

It’s in the brain. What we feel in the digestive tract beyond the mouth is satiation, not satisfaction. Even though undersatiation is registered in the brain as hunger, full satiation actually is a handicap on the path to further satisfaction.

Remember your childhood? Having Sunday lunch at your grandma’s? Or a Thanksgiving dinner? Eat as much as you can. Unlimited delicious food. Until you have to admit: I just can’t eat any more! Absolutely full. But you still can lick spoons.

Didn’t you feel just great?

Yes, putting loads of food in your mouth will cause a very positive mood. The uplifting effect is better than that of Prozac (the erectile dysfunction drug for the mind).

Now, if you avoid the satiation from passing food into your stomach, won’t you be eating all day?

Serge Kreutz says No, you won’t. And you can try this yourself.

The correct technique for kreutzing food is to drink (and swallow) some water in between instances of putting food into your mouth, and chewing and discarding it. This, along with the small quantities of food that anyway slide down your esophagus when you roll it in your mouth, is enough to stop any hunger signaling from the stomach.

Certainly, when kreutzing meals, you will put more food in your mouth than when consuming meals conventionally. Enjoy!

But sooner or later, your appetite will subside all by itself. Tastes, when experienced again and again, will lose intensity, and apart from that, there will, sooner or later, be a desire to do something else than eat.

That is when you are satisfied. Even though you are not satiated in the sense that you are burdened. It’s full satisfaction, but satiation only by the water you drink and swallow in between discarding any other content of your mouth into plastic bags.

And you can do this for years. Never feel any food deprivation. And be of ideal weight forever.

Coffee and tea - Serge Kreutz style

If you are not yet a follower of the Serge Kreutz diet, consider my advice on coffee and tea.

Coffee and tea both rightfully rank high on the list of human culinary preferences. Both are enjoyed worldwide.

While coffee and tea have completely different tastes, they share the fact that they are mentally stimulating in the same category as amphetamines, though milder in typical dosages.

Nevertheless, caffeine and theobromine are poisons, and anything beyond small quantities are detrimental to sexual function, especially of male consumers.

On the other hand, the flavors of coffee and tea are so superb that they have to be considered an aroma therapy for the smell as well as the taste receptors.

All aroma therapies do have an effect on the mind, no doubt, and by allowing us to play with our senses, they are sensualizing, and that’s almost always conducive to better sex.

As you can see, there is need to differentiate between coffee and tea in the mouth, and coffee and tea in the gut.

In the mouth, it’s all positive. In the further digestive system, it’s almost all negative.

I love coffee and tea. I do consume substantial quantities of both. In the mouth. Not in the gut.

I use coffee and tea every day, all day. If I would swallow all these quantities, I would suffer from severe tachycardia, extreme insomnia, erectile dysfunction, and, after some time, heart disease, kidney disease, and mental disorders.

Alas, I consume all this coffee and tea in the Serge Kreutz diet style. Spit it, don’t shit it.

I drink coffee and tea without swallowing it. I keep it in my mouth for a moment, and return it into a side container for fluids to be discarded.

ANYWAY…

If you carefully examine the tastes of coffee and teas, you will notice that both mostly are aftertastes. They materialize not while you have them in your oral cavity, but only after they have left the mouth, either by having been swallowed or by having been spit out.

You can test this yourself. For the taste of coffee or tea, it makes absolutely no difference whether you swallow it or spit it. Either way, the taste of coffee and tea is strongest after they are gone, and after they are gone, they will last for a minute or so, with a steady rate of disappearance.

My stomach isn’t the trash can for things I have put into my mouth for oral and mental excitement. The trash can is outside of my body.

The fundamental principle of the Serge Kreutz diet is the differentiation between food for the mouth and food for the gut.

So, in one meal, I can have coffee for the mouth, but only pure water for the stomach and onward organs.

And if so inclined, you can have black forest tart with the coffee in and out the mouth, but the water that reaches the stomach will be accompanied only by a few bites of dry bread (if you are not sensitive to gluten and similar proteins), or just some spoonfuls of plain, entirely unspiced white rice, followed by a few bites of fruit.

I do prefer some plain white rice among the substances I pass to my stomach because it is so easy on the digestive system. I prefer plain white rice with water as stomach filler when I feast on cheese, olives, and red wine, all of which I never pass through the esophagus to the stomach, but discard after having enjoyed the taste.

In the field of food consumption, the Serge Kreutz diet is a revolution akin to the arrival of the contraceptive pill in the field of sexual consummation.

Sex is not primarily for procreation; it is for sensation.

Likewise, nutrition is a minor aspect of eating. The primary one is the pleasurable sensation of tastes.

How to drink wine and cognac

I love wine and cognac.

All cheese tastes better with red wine.

All chocolate tastes better with cognac.

It is simply amazing for how long the taste of cognac can stay on the gum. The 40 percent alcohol wakes up the taste buds, and the flavors of grapes and oak penetrate deep.

Alas, I am totally opposed to alcohol in my stomach, guts, blood stream, and brain.

Alcohol makes my stomach sick, undermines my good manners, impairs my judgment, gives me a hangover headache, and the long-term effect is dementia.

I don’t need any of this.

So grape juice instead of wine? Water with artificial cognac flavor?

You must be joking!

On the other hand, there is more shit in wine and cognac, not just the alcohol. Traces of tyramines and other neurologically active amines. Many yet unresearched chemical substances resulting from the fermentation of the raw products.

In spite of these harsh comments, the wine and cognac industry of France, and the rest of the world, really should give me awards and prizes. They should make me their chief lobbyist.

Because nobody promotes the sale and consumption of wine and cognac as efficiently as I do.

Because I am convinced of what I say. And, unlike what goes for standard lobbyists, my wordcraft is not for sale.

So, does all of the above make sense?

Here is the key:

Differentiate between the things you put in your mouth and those you pass through the esophagus.

Don’t indiscriminately swallow what you taste.

Wash your mouth with wine, then spit it out.

Rinse with cognac before you enjoy chocolate. And mind you, “rinse” means: roll it in your mouth from left to right, from under the tongue to the roof of the gum, and you may even gurgle if so inclined. And then: spit it out.

Is it a waste of money to spit out a 200-dollar-per-bottle wine or cognac.

Of course not. Anyway, you bought it for the taste, not the nutritional value.

Once the wine or cognac is in your mouth, what happens? The alcohol is not degraded, but most everything else is, especially the complex compounds that give the flavor.

Try this: put some cognac in a suitable glass, just a mouthful. Smell its delicious flavor. Then pass it into your mouth. Enjoy the sensation. Feel your saliva flow. Roll it. Now return it into the glass. Try to identify the smell. The alcohol is still there, of course. But apart from that?

Nothing. Almost no smell.

Want to drink it again?

Certainly not. An unappetizing liquid. Cognac enzymatically destroyed by saliva.

So, why on earth pass this through the esophagus to the stomach, to the liver, to the anus.

Spit it, don’t shit it.

Just as the pleasure of sex is in the sensation, not the procreation, the pleasure of wine and cognac is in the taste, not the digestion.

I am an expert on cognac, precisely because I never swallow it. I can play with different kinds of cognac at the same time.

Sip a mouthful of Hennessy, keep it in my mouth some 20 to 30 seconds, discard it through my mouth. Enjoy the flavor of the aftertaste. Then kill it with some chocolate (which I swallow). Plain milk chocolate, which still adopts the taste of the cognac.

Finish with a mouthful of decaffeinated coffee.

Then a mouthful of Remy Martin, followed by the above routine. And then a Courvoisier. And a Martell.

The first step to becoming a connoisseur is to be able to differentiate tastes. You can’t if you swallow every drop. You don’t have proper taste sensations if you are alcoholized. And you do not have the intellect for proper judgment.

You are not a connoisseur if you just pick a brand of cognac (an expensive one), and say: that is the best quality.

You are a connoisseur only if you can differentiate among tastes. And play with them. And if you are not an alcoholic. And never intoxicated.

And if your approach to wine and cognac is Serge Kreutz style.

Why absolutely nothing beats chocolate for weight loss

Chocolate is the world’s foremost weight loss food.

You will lose weight with any food if you are kreutzing it.

But if you are kreutzing chocolate, I can assure you that you will lose weight in record time.

The reason for this amazing phenomena lies in the fact that for no other food in the world, the proportion of oral and gastric satisfaction is tilted so strongly in favor of the oral side.

The composition of fatty and sweet components in milk chocolate (“dutched chocolate” by industry term) is simply ideal. The chocolate fat dissolves in the mouth better than any other creamy substance. It just melts and liquefies in the correct time span.

Compare this, for example, with commercial hazelnut creams, manufactured on a hydrogenized vegetable oil base. That one starts out softer than chocolate.

But chocolate melts into a complete liquid in about a minute, and it flows freely in the mouth.

But hazelnut cream on a vegetable oil base will melt slower, and stick to the linings of your mouth much longer.

Or compare chocolate to jam. Even the best jam just has a sweet texture, never the creamy feel of chocolate (unless you use the jam as a topping on chocolate).

And so far, I have only referred to textures. But of course, the aroma of chocolate is also unmatched.

Now, to understand the idea that kreutzing chocolate is ideal for weight loss, you first have to know that the Serge Kreutz diet differentiates between oral cravings and gastric cravings for food.

Yes, there are gastric cravings for food. The gastric and upper intestinal walls are dotted with neural receptors that recognize whether there is content or not.

If there is content, hormonal processes are stimulated that further down regulate bowels expulsion, and further up signals that no additional food needs to be ingested.

Yes, an empty stomach causes feelings of hunger.

But that’s only half of the story. Or actually, less than half.

Because our cravings for food only to a very small extent originate from our digestive system downwards the throat.

More than anything else, our cravings for food originate on the mouth-brain axis.

There are no taste receptors from the esophagus on. If human cravings for food were mainly a matter of the stomach, we could all be eating nothing but tapioca silage, just like hogs, though more carefully formulated to supply the right proportions of all macro and micro nutrients.

That such a scenario is so off the mark of all projections of the future of humanity proves the high percentage at which food cravings are related to taste sensations.

Your oral cravings for food is what you have to cope with on a weight loss regimen, and all other diets fail because they cannot dissociate oral food consumption from gastric, intestinal, and (if you wish to dissect the truth that far) anal food consumption.

Only if you are kreutzing food instead of subscribing to all that Atkins and South Beach and North Beach quackery, you have a scientific awareness of the psychological and nutritional effects of food.

And this awareness really is all you ever need to never be obese, but forever ideal weight.

And because no other food matches the oral satisfaction that can be derived from chocolate, chocolate, of course, and loads of it, is the ideal weigh-loss food.

If you are kreutzing chocolate, that is… instead of eating it conventionally.

Chocolate sessions

If you are not kreutzing, you cannot properly enjoy chocolate.

This is obvious because chocolate is the food that is slowest of all in satiating the taste buds.

If you eat (conventionally, not kreutzing) raw carrots, or bread that came out of the oven three days ago, you will stop eating as soon as your stomach signals that it is no longer hungry. You will just eat the amount of food required to meet your energy needs.

It’s not like that with chocolate. When you will have swallowed what would be enough calories for working a day in the fields, or a quarry, your mouth will still crave for more chocolate.

And even when non-kreutzing chocolate lovers eventually interrupt their sessions, they do so not because they have had enough of the taste but because they feel guilty about all the calories they are ingesting.

But I eat chocolate, Serge Kreutz style, until I get bored with it. That doesn’t happen quickly. And the refractory period is short.

So I can easily go through a kilo of chocolate in a day. Anyway, I am of ideal weight, and a kilo of chocolate a day won’t make a difference, haha.

And because I am not handicapped by an unclear conscience, I play with chocolate even more than I play with other food.

Yes, chocolate goes very nicely with coffee. I like my coffee strong and pure. No sugar, no milk, not even vanilla. All of those only tune coffee down.

Take your sip of coffee before you put the chocolate into your mouth. Strong coffee has a lasting aftertaste, and it carries over into the chocolate and enhances the flavor.

On the other hand, don’t sip coffee immediately after your mouth melted chocolate because the coffee will rinse the chocolate flavor.

Typically, during my chocolate sessions (more often than once a day), I mix five or six different kinds… or as many as I have on hand.

I always include dark chocolate and milk chocolate in my sessions. Dark chocolate has a great flavor but is not creamy.

Now, the trick is to create two layers. The lower layer is some creamy milk chocolate, and the upper layer is a thin plate of dark chocolate.

When you put this into your mouth, you have a double sensation. Some of your taste buds will be excited by the creamy texture of the milk chocolate, and neighboring taste buds by the delicate bitterness of the black chocolate.

Let this double layer chocolate travel through your mouth. It feels like playing a piano. A black note here, then three white notes, followed by two black, and so on.

It is important that you do this with two distinctly different chocolates. Mixing the milk chocolate and the black chocolate during production in the factory will not have the same effect.

I do many other pairs of tastes, and I often do sequences of different pairs. You should also try the following:

Fine black chocolate with raspberry jam.

The raspberry jam must be proper quality. Not overly sweetened.

Raspberry jam, in the opinion of my taste buds, goes better with black chocolate than any other jam. When I use jam with toast, I prefer black currants. But black currants do not harmonize with chocolate as well as raspberries.

For optimal taste pleasure during a chocolate session, switch often among different varieties: a sip of coffee followed by a piece of milk chocolate with a dark layer, a sip of hot water, then again a sip of coffee, this time followed by vanilla-flavored white chocolate, a sip of hot water, a sip of coffee, then a piece of black chocolate covered in raspberry jam, or maybe hazelnut cream.

I can go on for an hour or more. Enjoy. Anyway, kreutzing means minimal calories, and for sure no weight gain.

Eat chocolate and lose weight

If I would have to select just one food that I would be allowed to put into my mouth until the end of my days, it would choose chocolate… and I would not need 10 seconds of thinking before coming up with that decision.

For many, many years, I have been a consumer of chocolate in large amounts, long before the Serge Kreutz diet idea struck me.

The taste of no other food has such a great effect on my brain.

And after the Serge Kreutz diet idea did occur to me, I noticed quickly that no other food is as suited for kreutzing as is chocolate.

It fully liquefies in the mouth, and it is so easy to discard into a plastic bag. Very little slides into the esophagus, and even for strict kreutzing is is one of the most suited foods.

You can go through 100 or 150 gram of chocolate several times a day, and what makes it to your digestive system is probably just 1 or 2 grams each time.

On many people, chocolate has a great uplifting effect. Conventional science credits this effect to the theobromine and other chemical constituents of chocolate.

But conventional is less than half-true with this assessment.

The psychological effect of chocolate comes from the taste. And this is something you will soon discover if you get into kreutzing food.

Chocolate has a lot of calories. Who cares, haha! When kreutzing chocolate, you get practically none of them.

But if for whatever reason, kreutzing is not for you, here some paragraphs that nevertheless advise you to eat chocolate. They were written before I had the kreutzing idea.

My whole life, I have been concerned with dietary issues.

I had and have to. If I don’t do that, I suffer from debilitating migraine every second day.

I have also had a phase in my life when I was some 40 kilos overweight. I am only 10 kilo overweight now.(This was before I came up with the Serge Kreutz diet idea! I am 20 kilo down from the 10 kilo overweight.)

I could write a diet book. But as of now, it’s just a few websites with some articles.

(obsolete paragraphs omitted)

Which macro nutrient is the biggest burden for the digestive system.

Not fat.

The biggest burden is protein. All proteins contain nitrogen, and when proteins are used as fuel, many nitrogenous toxins are formed.

I am very, very prone to migraine headaches. And the surest way to provoke them is eating cheese. And it has been suggested that the tyramine in aged protein food such as cheese is the trigger.

But by eliminating cheese alone, I cannot get rid of my migraines. I know other trigger food. Eggs for example, fresh eggs, from hens gathering their food running around a farm.

Or from eating chicken at KFC.

I don’t get migraine from eating quality milk chocolate. I can eat nothing else but milk chocolate for three days, up to a kilo a day. No migraine, also no sub-migraine. (But I can’t guarantee this for every brand of dark chocolate.)

I have tried purely vegetarian diets, heavy on peanuts and broccoli, but I still get migraines.

I have finally found the common denominator of all food causing me migraines, and sub- migraine headaches, or just a subtle condition of not feeling fresh.

The common denominator is proteinoverload. The digestion of protein and amino acids anyway produces more toxic by-products than then digestion of any other macro nutrient, all because of the nitrogen they contain. And tyramine, the old culprit and gang leader of migraine triggers, is a nitrogen compound, too.

Of course, I, as everybody else need protein as a nutrient. But how much protein do I need? 30 to 40 gram a day, maybe. Anything more is detrimental to my well-being.

Mind you, anybody eating recognized quality food will have a hard time to not get beyond the 30 to 40 gram of protein per day.

And anybody of the hundreds of millions of people who suffer from migraines and lesser headaches, and who I suggest give protein-restriction a try, can happily go without animal protein and need not worry about not reaching the 30 to 40 grams a day.

Many vegetables, and even grains, are sufficient sources of protein, though one may want to avoid soy products (because they are estrogenic, and soy protein digestion results in particularly toxic by-products) as well as grains and legumes (both with many problematic proteins). Even then, there is no shortage of protein sources. The dry mass of broccoli is around 50 percent protein, and asparagus and spinach are good sources, too.

That much on proteins. How about carbs?

I don’t think they are as problematic as proteins. I, and millions of others, don’t suffer migraine attacks from eating carbs.

But while carbs may not be as heavy on the digestive system as proteins, they aren’t as light as fats either.

Carbs enter the blood stream as sugar, regardless of whether they were ingested as “healthy” greens or “unhealthy” refined sweets, or tasteless starch.

Carbs and fats are more related to each other then either of the two is to protein. The liver converts fat into glucose fairly easily without toxic by-products.

However, there is an easily definable problem with carbohydrates, which is feeling hunger. If carbs are eaten and digested, they result in elevated blood sugar levels. The body has to answer this with releasing insulin.

But this biological response seems to lack fine-tuning. For after the over-sugar phase, there will next be a phase of under-sugar resulting in feeling hungry, regardless of whether the meal supplied enough calories for pending activities or not .

And then they eat. And then they are overweight.

Most people wrongly believe that dietary fats make them fat. Because after having eaten a meal with a sufficient amount of fat people can feel satiated for hours.

But if they just foolishly replace all fats with carbs, they will inevitably be hungry after a short while. And because being hungry is by and large a disturbing feeling, most people just eat.

Now, I am not propagating of a low-carb diet. For curiosity, I have tried it. But while a meal of protein and fat may supply enough calories, it doesn’t satisfy my carving for food. I have to eat some carbs to be happy and fit.

Conventional wisdom, suggests that about half of one’s intake of food should be carbs.

Now what carbs?

Quality carbs. And they should have two, not just one quality. First they should be of good nutritional value, also supplying minerals and vitamins. Second, they should appeal to the taste buds.

Whether they are natural or processed isn’t the issue, really. It’s their biochemical composition that matters.

Grains are tasty, but the proteins that accompany the carbs are critical. The same is the case with many legumes.

On the other hand, while it’s reputation is terrible, refined sugar really is just pure carbs. And I would give it preference over that other simple carb, which is starch.

Taste-wise, sugar beats starch hands-down.

And therefore, it does so also in one nutritional department that is often not considered: the psychological effect of food.

Enter chocolate.

I consider chocolate the most psychologically nutritious food of all.

You can serve me a steak. I eat it.

Then I see a plate of chocolate. I desire it.

You think I am still hungry, so you serve me another steak. OK, I eat it.

But seeing the chocolate, I will still desire it.

This won’t go away with eating yet another steak. I may feel very, very full, but the desire for the chocolate I see will still be there. I really have to force myself not to eat it.

But try it the other way around. Let me eat the chocolate first.

If now I decide that I want to diet and therefore reduce my calorie intake, I can happily go without the steak(s).

I will desire some non-sweet food eventually, but if I do want to lose weight, I can easily eat just chocolate all day, nothing else.

Anyway, nutritionally chocolate fares quite well. Milk chocolate has about 7 gram of protein per 100 gram, and 59 gram of carbs and 29 gram of fat, with about 4 gram of fiber.

As a meal composition, that sounds fairly good to most people, at least as long they don’t know that this meal is just chocolate.

Sure, some necessary micro nutrients such as vitamin C are not supplied (easy to get anywhere, eat some fruit).

On the other hand, chocolate contains some other micro nutrients that otherwise are quite rare, such as phenolics.

So, go ahead, lose weight, eat chocolate. (Of course, kreutzing chocolate is superior to eating chocolate any way you look at it. And chocolate is an important component of the Serge Kreutz diet.)

How to eat cheese

I love cheese. If I would have to decide on the 100 most exciting tastes (except those sexual) I have experienced in my life, cheeses would probably occupy more than 50 positions. Gorgonzola, Stilton, Camembert

Cheese tastes absolutely great. A bite of cheese, then the mouth washed with some red wine, then a green olive, then cheese again. How food can excite the taste buds!

Yes, the taste buds. Not the esophagus, not the stomach, not the lining of the intestines, and not the anus.

Cheese and red wine are great in the mouth, but both are not really fit for full digestion.

Alcohol is a disturbance for the brain, and an unnecessary burden for the liver. I am opposed to any alcohol in my bloodstream.

Cheese is not quite as bad. But any protein-based food cured and processed long will undergo chemical changes that will likely render it inferior to fresh protein-based food.

In cheese, it’s the tyramine.

The tyramine in cheese definitely triggers migraine headaches in me, and even when I don’t end up with a full-blown headache, the digestion of cheese results in sub-optimal mental alertness and a general state of not feeling totally healthy.

With most cheeses, I have serious doubts as to whether they are fit for the human digestion.

On the other hand, I consume cheese almost every day.

How is that?

It’s the Serge Kreutz diet.

I put the cheese in my mouth, and love it.

I just don’t swallow it.

As for cheese, my principle is: spit it, don’t shit it.

Observe yourself when eating some cheese. For example a Danish Blue.

Put it in your mouth, just the cheese, without bread.

It will have a strong effect on your taste buds.

Then move it to every corner of your mouth. You will notice that wherever the cheese first comes in contact with your taste buds, there is a strong sensation.

Then the sensation subsides. Enzymatic processes initiated by saliva totally destroy the cheese. I will turn it into a creamy and rather tasteless fluid.

So, why should you swallow this partially digested mess?

Not for the nutrients. Denatured proteins, cholesterol-heavy fats, and harmful chemical substances like tyramine.

Just have a container ready and spit it out. Then rinse your mouth with some red wine. You spit this out, too.

Now you can take a bite of food you actually will swallow. An olive, a slice of tomato, a bite of bread (if you have a good tolerance for gluten).

And now you are ready for the next cycle that starts with a bite of cheese.

Migraine? Consume more cheese!

It has been suspected for some time that particular foods can trigger migraine attacks… foods such as cheese, red wine, and chocolate. By the time I consulted those headache specialists at the Klinikum Grosshadern in Munich (end of the seventies) I have been told that I could try to avoid migraine headaches by not eating precisely these foods: cheese and chocolate.

I was not pleased with the advice that I should forgo cheese in particular. During the years in Munich, when I worked for a TV station, I was an ardent consumer of very Bavarian, strong-smelling, hearty cheeses. Actually they were the staple of my diet with some 300 to 400 grams a day.

The idea that my cheese consumption would trigger my migraine attacks seemed, at that time, so strange to me that I never took it seriously, even though I had clear indications to support the idea, as I know from hindsight.

Rather, for as long as I lived in Munich, I blamed the weather there for my headaches, which is common practice in Munich. I then thought this to be obvious because I suffered from migraines when in Munich but did not during my travels to Southeast Asia, which I first undertook every few months, and then every few weeks.

Of course, in Southeast Asia, the weather is different from Southern Bavaria. But apart from that, the food that has been available to me in Southeast Asia at that time was also very different. No cheese.

The migraines were a major reason why at the beginning of the eighties, I left Munich to settle in Southeast Asia.

With my income, it first didn’t work out so well in Southeast Asia. I may even say that I had a hard time for a few years. But I sure, too, didn’t have a headache problem. The migraine attacks ceased completely.

Until a few years later, when I was well established and again could indulge in cheese, even though Gorgonzola, Camembert, and Roquefort could only be bought at five-star hotels and at prices matching the prestige of the shopping environment.

My migraine attacks also returned in full force. Even though it is quite obvious to me now that they were caused by those generous servings of cheese, I was blind for that fact at the time the attacks reoccurred. This time around, I didn’t blame them on the weather, though. The weather in Southeast Asia is too different from Munich for that. Rather, I expected as culprit the stress of professional success.

My streak of good luck in business (the publishing trade) didn’t last long and I soon had to move to another country and start all over again. Gone were the income, the stress of being successful, the migraines, and the cheese platters.

That’s how I saw it then. Today I know that I should put it this way: Gone were the success, and the means to buy expensive selections of cheese, and, because of the modified diet, the migraine headaches.

It took another cycle of success, cheese, and migraine attacks until I finally realized their cause.

During the second Asian cycle of success, cheese, and migraine (beginning of the nineties), I came across a newspaper item in which it was reported that scientists now definitely linked cheese and migraine.

Actually, not just cheese, but any food with a high content of tyramine.

And now?

Now I consume any quantity of cheese, and I never have migraine attacks.

Because I had just one simple idea that solved my migraine problem, as well as a plethora of other health-related issues, including obesity, all at once.

This idea is that, just as we differentiate between sex for pleasure and sex for procreation, we ought to differentiate between food for pleasure and food for nutrition.

One technique we have to enjoy sexual penetration without unwanted pregnancies is to use a rubber bag to collect the male sperm so it will not reach and fertilize a female egg cell. It’s called a condom.

We can do exactly the same with food. After enjoying its textures and favors in the mouth, discard into a plastic bag, not your stomach.

Just as we can hinder sperm cells to cause pregnancies, we can hinder nutrients to cause obesity.

Nobody, absolutely nobody, has to be overweight. Everybody can be ideal weight, which is approximately body height in centimeters, minus 100, minus 10 percent, in kilogram.

If you want the figure of a ballet dancer, you may even go up to minus 15 percent. Definitely not more than that.

Easy to achieve.

Just follow the Serge Kreutz diet. Be very selective on what you swallow, but allow your mouth full taste satisfaction.

You can consume any amount of tyramine-laden cheese. Even if you are a migraineur. As long as you are kreutzing it.

Phantom food

If you are new to the idea of kreutzing food, and not yet convinced, you will probably come up with the following objection:

“Well, if I don’t swallow my food, I won’t be satiated. I will be hungry all day!”

The trick is that you should drink plenty of water with the meals that you do not swallow.

If you do this, your mouth will have all the taste sensations you love, and your stomach will be full, but you do not burden your body with an oversupply of nutrients.

It is easy to be satiated from the taste sensations of food and a stomach full of water. This combination feels the same as having swallowed a meal. You could label such a meal phantom food.

Of course, the water will not stay in your stomach as long as a fatty pork chop or a chili con carne. And after an hour or so, you will feel hungry again.

So what?

Feeling hungry more often during the day is a positive effect of kreutzing food, not a negative one.

Hunger, the urge to eat, has about the same quality as libido, the urge to have sex.

Our urge for sex is not a disturbance of a happy life. It is an essential component. A good number of today’s humans know this. Former generations mostly lacked the appropriate understanding and took efforts to kill their sex drive. How stupid!

If you do not have sexual appetite first, you cannot experience the utmost satisfaction from orgasms. And then your life is devoid of sense.

It is a similar story with hunger, so not quite as extreme. But certainly, all food tastes better if you feel hungry, just as all sex feels better when you have strong desires.

Don’t prematurely kill your hunger!

If you eat for the pleasure of food, then stuffing your stomach with solids is as stupid as premature ejaculation.

The wise man who can derive optimal pleasure from engaging in sexual intercourse will postpone ejaculation. Because once he has ejaculated, the pleasure potential is no longer there.

And once your stomach is full, food in your mouth does not taste as great as it does before you filled it.

If I do not swallow food beyond what all by itself passes through my throat, I can eat for two hours.

Actually, I play with tastes just as I play with my sexual fantasies during intercourse.

To play with food, I may fill 5 to 10 small bowels with about 50 ml of coconut milk, one of the best neutral carriers of taste, and an ideal ingredient for kreutzing. Coconut milk, of course, is the carrier of taste for curries.

But to play with tastes, I don’t just cook curries, and I never use other peoples recipes.

I heat the coconut milk in the bowls, and put fresh milled coriander seeds in one, fresh sliced ginger in the next, wasabe powder in yet another, cardamom in the next, and so on.

Be aware that with some of these taste carriers you have to add sweetness to get the full body of flavor. This sweetness can either com from plain sugar, or palm sugar, or even sauted onions. Without the sweet ingredient, tastes from roots and seeds may have some hallow bitterness, even in coconut milk.

I then play with tastes. I roll a teaspoon of wasabe coconut milk, spit it out, drink some water, take a teaspoon of a coriander / cardamom mixture in coconut milk, spit it out, drink some water, and then try a teaspoon of fennel coconut milk.

I may then mix some ginger coconut milk with some wasabe coconut milk (you don’t even need sweetness with that), or any other two. And after mixing several such bowls, I have a curry… a different one every day.

On other days, I do the same with cheeses and red wines. All without swallowing either. My stomach only gets water in between the tastes.

But even if I do not fill my stomach with noticeable quantities of nutrient-containing food, I will get bored after some time, or become interested in other activities.

Be assured that I feel satiated, even so I have consumed almost no calories.

You may call it a phantom meal, but the psychological effect is the same as that of a traditional meal, minus the burden, heartburn, headache triggers, and intestinal irritants. And minus any gourmet obesity.

3.2.2.3.5.5.16

What are psychological calories?

“Psychological calories” is a new way to look at the nutritional value of food. And “psychological calories” is the reason why you can so easily lose as much weight as you want on the Serge Kreutz diet. We all know that the food we eat can be measured on a calorie scale. Calories are the energy which food provides when being burned in digestion.

Ideally, we should consume food that provides precisely the amount of energy we need for optimal physiological function. Without becoming overweight.

However, humans, and most other animals, lack an organ to sense the energy value of food.

While humans, and other animals, do have sensations related to the consumption of food, the system lacks fine-tuning.

We can feel hunger if we clearly lack food, and we can feel satiation when we have eaten enough or too much. In between these two poles are sensations like appetite (a desire for food because of its palatability) and food aversions (because we associate it with events of physical or mental discomfort).

All of this is very psychological, and much more complex than, for example, feeling too hot or too cold, or energetic or tired.

However, conventional nutritional science, as well as all so-far devised weight loss diets, have failed to take into account the psychological satiation value of food.

One thing is sure: the psychological satiation value of food and the burn value of food do not match. And it is the awareness of this discrepancy that makes the Serge Kreutz diet so successful.

The Serge Kreutz diet teaches you to differentiate between the conventional nutritional value of food (the energy value) and the psychological nutritional value of food (the taste pleasure that food provides).

Food cravings and overeating all have very little to do with the conventional nutritional value of food. They are totally psychological.

Your stomach and intestines never have a craving for food. Anyway, from the esophagus onwards, there are no taste receptors. If anything, your stomach and intestines would have been grateful if you would not have stuffed them with all that shit you have been eating all life long.

Your stomach and intestines would prefer a light burden, without all those irritants you have given them to digest because of their pleasant taste.

The Serge Kreutz diet is an entirely new approach to food consumption.

It starts with strictly treating separately the food for your stomach and intestines on the one side (conventional nutrition), and the food for your mouth and brain on the other side (the food that you eat for pleasure).

You can eat any food for its pleasure value, and as much of it as you want.

Just don’t swallow. Discard not into your esophagus. Discard into a plastic bag.

The barrier that you erect is not the lips and teeth of your mouth. The barrier must be your throat.

You can let plain water pass, as much as you desire, or even more than that. For anything else, use strict control. A little fruit every day, some nuts, a small egg yolk, minimal quantities of other food that slide down your throaf even though you would prefer to discard in the other direction.

Psychological calories, on the other hand, you can eat as many as your heart and brain desire. You can play with the many exciting tastes of food all day long. No restrictions. Anyway, as I have elaborated in other articles, the tastes of delicious foods are a smart drug, and the best antidepressant of all.

Just stay with kreutzing it all. Don’t swallow.

I guarantee you will have more pleasure from food than ever before. And you will maintain ideal body weight, without any real effort.

Homeopathic food

Homeopathy is a branch of alternative medicine which assumes a curing effect from an alleged memory of water.

Homeopathy, furthermore, is based on the idea that substances that induce a condition similar to a disease can, in very small dosages, cure this disease.

This idea is derived from the well-established mechanism of negative feedback regulation of any animal’s, including humans’, hormonal (endocrine) system.

For example, the first effect of high testosterone is that the body down-regulates testosterone synthesis. And it works like this with all hormones.

Homeopaths call this the law of similars, which is, however, not a law of nature but just a conclusion from some observations.

Immunology, and the idea of vaccinations, is often based on similar observations (with more scientific proof to them). For example, because causative agents and symptoms of small pox are similar to those of chicken pox, an infection with chicken pox protects against small pox. The immune system remembers characteristics of the pathogen, and is prepared to fight its variations, or anything similar.

Alas, water does not have a memory.

But taste buds have.

This recognition is a definite component of the Serge Kreutz diet.

The Serge Kreutz diet is based on a simple idea: not all food that makes it into the mouth has to make it through the esophagus.

Spit it, don’t shit it.

Cheese, red wine, olives, cognac, black forest cake, all these taste great, but the value as nutrients is questionable at best, and totally negative at worst.

Water does not have a memory, but taste buds have.

You can try some red wine or cognac. Don’t swallow it. Just role it in your mouth, than spit it out. You can even rinse your mouth with water after spitting out the red wine or cognac, to make sure no alcohol will make it to your stomach and onwards where it would be absorbed. Thus, no alcohol will make it past the blood-brain barrier.

Nevertheless, if ever you have actually swallowed alcoholic drinks, the signals your brain receives from your taste buds will induce some slight physiological reaction or counter-reaction which is associated with alcoholic drinks.

It will be a similar story with coffee or tea which is rolled in the mouth and then not swallowed but discarded.

Thus, alcohol and coffee can be truly designated as homeopathic foods.

The same applies, albeit more indirectly, to other food.

If on the day we first dated our next-to-be wife or husband, we dined on Parmesan-heavy spaghetti, any occasional diner on this recipe, even decades later, may bring back memories and associated mental states.

Swallowing is not needed for this effect.

This may not be a significant observation for those with no food sensitivity to Parmesan. But for many of those who get migraine or lesser headaches from biogenic and psychoactive amines in food, this differentiation is very important.

Plus, food, of course, makes fat. Gulping down tons of Parmesan-heavy spaghetti oversupplies calories, which will lead to obesity, which is a disease.

Thus, my advice is to indulge in Parmesan-heavy spaghetti in the Serge Kreutz manner.

Chew it, then discard the bolus into a plastic bag, not into your stomach.

A wasteful attitude? Haha. If you are above ideal weight, the spaghetti you swallow are more expensive than the spaghetti you spit out. Because the spaghetti you spit out just cost you your money. But the spaghetti you swallow, by making you overweight, cost you your health.

What is the Serge Kreutz food philosophy?

The Serge Kreutz food philosophy is for both dieters and gourmets what Charles Darwin’s principles of evolution are for biologists.

Both change everything.

Just as biology wasn’t the same after Charles Darwin, dieting and gourmet eating are not the same after Serge Kreutz.

You can summarize Charles Darwin in one sentence: different forms of life evolve from previous forms of life by natural and sexual selection.

You can also summarize Serge Kreutz in one sentence: differentiate between the nutrition value and the pleasure value of food, and be selective about what you pass to your stomach.

If the world adopts Serge Kreutz’ food philosophy, there will no longer be obese people.

Obesity is unnecessary and so easy to avoid for anybody who unserstands the Serge Kreutz food philosophy.

At the core is, as mentioned above, the differentiationc between the nutritional value of food, and the psychological (pleasure) component.

Much has been written about the nutritional value of all different foods humans consume. I do not have to add anything to this, except a word of caution: as you aim to be of ideal weight (height in centimeter minus 100, minus 10 percent = weight in kilogram), any food that passes to your stomach has to be of limited quantity (some fruit every day, a few nuts, an egg).

Now, that doesn’t sound very satisfying. And indeed, it is not. It is also not very satiating.

But being overly satiated is negative from any perspective you look at it.

The long-term effect of constantly filling your stomach with foodstuff, and overloading your intestines with content is a myriad of problems associated with being overweight.

But even the short-term effects are no good. Many foodstuffs cause an irritation of the digestive tract, and there is a plethora of unhealthy components in many foods, many over time even with a cancer risk.

Stuffing yourself with food also suppresses testosterone, thus inhibiting libido, and slows down brain function, thus making you less intelligent.

Yeah, but I love food. And you do.

And Serge Kreutz fully recognizes this. According to Serge Kreutz, apart from sexual intercourse, our relationship with food is what makes our lives worth living.

And Serge Kreutz actually encourages you to indulge in food. Copious quantities. Orgies of taste.

Just follow one important advice: don’t discard into your stomach what your mouth enjoys. Discard into a plastic bag. Just drink (and swallow intentionally) plain water after the bolus has passed into a plastic bag.

Yes, you will feel satisfied after such a meal. For satisfaction from food is a quality that comes from the taste of food. And you have taste receptors only in your mouth, and the esophagus and all further organs of food digestion are void of taste receptors (thank God, because chyme tastes horrible, first like vomit, then like shit).

It is obvious that food-related satisfaction is a consequence neither of the nutritional value of food, nor of its effect of loading the stomach and further organs of the digestive tract.

If the satisfaction from food where related to either of the above two, we would all be eating optimally formulated silage, just as hogs.

Come on! Satisfaction from food comes entirely from the taste of food. Nothing else.

It’s in the brain. What we feel in the digestive tract beyond the mouth is satiation, not satisfaction. Even though undersatiation is registered in the brain as hunger, full satiation actually is a handicap on the path to further satisfaction.

Remember your childhood? Having Sunday lunch at your grandma’s? Or a Thanksgiving dinner? Eat as much as you can. Unlimited delicious food. Until you have to admit: I just can’t eat any more! Absolutely full. But you still can lick spoons.

Didn’t you feel just great?

Yes, putting loads of food in your mouth will cause a very positive mood. The uplifting effect is better than that of Prozac (the erectile dysfunction drug for the mind).

Now, if you avoid the satiation from passing food into your stomach, won’t you be eating all day?

Serge Kreutz says No, you won’t. And you can try this yourself.

The correct technique for kreutzing food is to drink (and swallow) some water in between instances of putting food into your mouth, and chewing and discarding it. This, along with the small quantities of food that anyway slide down your esophagus when you roll it in your mouth, is enough to stop any hunger signaling from the stomach.

Certainly, when kreutzing meals, you will put more food in your mouth than when consuming meals conventionally. Enjoy!

But sooner or later, your appetite will subside all by itself. Tastes, when experienced again and again, will lose intensity, and apart from that, there will, sooner or later, be a desire to do something else than eat.

That is when you are satisfied. Even though you are not satiated in the sense that you are burdened. It’s full satisfaction, but satiation only by the water you drink and swallow in between discarding any other content of your mouth into plastic bags.

And you can do this for years. Never feel any food deprivation. And be of ideal weight forever.

The Kreutz food philosophy is a oral aroma therapy

Have you ever observed the flow of your thoughts when your mouth holds delicious food?

There is a direct link from your taste buds to your mental state.

It is not just that delicious food tastes good. It feels good.

Delicious food in the mouth is a powerful anti-depressant. It alleviates clinical and sub- clinical mental problems better than prescription drugs.

Delicious tastes in the mouth generate optimism and a positive outlook to one’s life in the future.

Beyond that, delicious food in the mouth is a powerful smart drug. When you do creative work, or study, you do this much better when it is accompanied by delicious tastes in the mouth.

This is why chocolate, for example, makes people intelligent. No, it’s not the theobromine, it’s the effect of the taste on the brain.

But where to put all the calories from delicious food? Into your stomach? What a burden for your body!

My food philosophy is to differentiate what I put into my mouth from what I pass to my stomach. For simplicity I have named this food philosophy the Serge Kreutz diet.

I am all in favor of the stimulating effects of the many tastes of food.

But my stomach and my intestines and my liver all have no taste receptors. Taste receptors really are just in my mouth.

So why should I discard the bolus that forms in my mouth into my stomach? That doesn’t make much sense.

I discard it into a plastic bag.

This is all the more advisable as many of the carriers of delicious tastes have a negative effect on human organisms once they have passed the mouth.

Alcoholic drinks, some of which really have inspiring effects via their tastes (wine, most of all), are simply shit to digest.

Or take cheeses, those tyramine-lauded headache triggers.

Any excessive food is just a burden, and not just because of the obesity effect.

So, discard most of what you eat into plastic bags, not into your stomach. Or, as a catch phrase: spit it, don’t shit it.

You can call this “kreutzing food” if you want to credit me for the idea.

If you are a newcomer to kreutzing food, here some basic advice on technicalities.

Liquid food is, of course, easiest to kreutz.

Next are foods that liquefy well in the mouth, such as chocolate and soft cheeses.

Curries are also easy to kreutz. I cook them myself and play with their tastes for many hours on some days.

Because curries are so easy to variate, they are indeed one of the most suited foods for any oral aroma therapy. You don’t swallow, so it does not matter that many of the seeds and roots used in curries are bad intestinal irritants.

The worst food to kreutz is probably bread. Bread does not liquefy in the mouth, it just clumps. Compared to fluids, to discards bread into plastic bags feels messy.

Rice is also not ideal as a kreutzing staple because rice does not dissolve in the mouth. Even though the rice kernels are soft, they remain kernels and tend to stick between lips and the rows of teeth.

The best staple to give tastes volume are potatoes because they liquefy in the mouth (cook them soft).

Potatoes, for example, are ideal for kreutzing curries, and the combination is one of the best oral aroma therapy recipes.

What are Serge Kreutz restaurants?

No, they are not owned by me, Serge Kreutz.

But they follow a basic concept, propagated by me. That is: Not every food that is fit for taste is fit for digestion.

And that means: you put it into your mouth but don’t pass it via your esophagus, stomach, and intestine.

There are so many delicious foods and drinks that are just not appropriate for digestion.

Alcoholic drinks, for one category. Cognac tastes just great, many liquors do. Alcohol is a great substance to capture tastes and convey them to our taste buds.

But once swallowed, the effects are all negative: intoxication, a burden to the liver, damage to the brain.

For tea, it’s a similar story. OK, I can do with some theobromine in my bloodstream. That would be equivalent to one or two cups a day.

But I love the taste of tea. When I eat Asian dishes, or sweets, I like to rinse my mouth with strong tea after every spoon.

And then? Swallow the tea?

That would be simply stupid. I rinse my mouth with tea, then discard the tea.

Not via the esophagus. I spit it out.

Haha, I can feast on a 5000 calorie meal, not yet counting the wine and cognac, and what reaches my stomach is just 500 calories: some rice, a fried egg, a few olives and nuts, a bit of fruit, plain water.

I can not do this in a normal restaurant. It does not look appetizing to other guest when I sit there and empty most bites into a container instead of swallowing it.

So, Serge Kreutz restaurants have to be different. They have to be designed with water streams on table height where guest can get empty their bites without having to swallow them, and all of this in an aesthetic setting.

Yes, it’s an architectural challenge, but based on a concept “swallow” restaurants can’t compete with.

The world's best cook

I am not the world’s best cook. If anything, I am the world’s best eater.

But I know what it would take to be the world’s best cook. I have, indeed, a clear map of the only path that could make somebody the world’s best cook.

It’s not talent. It’s also not art. Not really. It’s science. Because you can learn it. Systematically.

Cooking to become the world’s best cook doesn’t depend on intuition. It depends on knowledge and learning.

Full meals, single dishes, the preparation of any food item, all of this is a matter of knowledge.

Nobody, even recognized good cooks, can improvise the preparation of food.

Because unless you tasted and tested certain ways of preparing dishes, and unless you compared one way of doing it with another, you cannot determine what is the best combination of ingredients.

You may see a world-class cook going along without looking up recipes. He or she may just check what is available for the preparation of a meal. But it only looks as if he or she is improvising. In reality, it’s drawing on memorized knowledge.

Nobody can be a good cook without recipes. If you want to be a good cook, you can either learn recipes, or see them in writing while trying your cooking effort.

Recipes are absolutely essential. Therefore, for any success in the future, you have to start with collecting your own database of recipes.

And you have to cook each and every recipe yourself. Because with recipes, it’s just like with anything else. 90 percent is shit.

The Serge Kreutz eating technique is crucial if you want to become even just a decent cook.

Kreutzing food means: enjoy the taste of a food, or just test it’s flavor, then discard not into your esophagus but into a plastic bag.

Why? Because in order to test recipes, you will have to put the results of your efforts into your mouth. Many efforts, loads of food.

If you swallow all of that, you are not on track to become a good cook. Not only will you end up terribly overweight. But having your stomach loaded with food will also dampen the taste sensations of your mouth, and you will very quickly lose your ability to make proper judgments.

Sometimes, it is just a fine line between a world-class composition and an effort gone wrong. This is especially the case with many spices.

Take cinnamon, for example. You can add a trace in a very limited number of dishes, and you have a mystical note in their flavors. But you can also very quickly ruin a dish by adding any, or just a little too much. For this, I would classify cinnamon as a “dangerous” spice. Unlike pepper, for example. You can’t go wrong easily with pepper. But pepper will also never be magic.

To stay with the cinnamon example, you have to know which recipe can take it. The recipe may come from a published collection, or you may have created it yourself.

But for sure, in a recipe, all ingredients are quantified. It’s never improvising. Because 99.99 percent of all possible combinations just don’t taste right.

The gourmet diet - how you can enjoy any quantity of food without gaining weight

A gourmet is a person who knows how to derive pleasure from food.

I am a gourmet.

Like any gourmet, I long faced the problem that indulging in the pleasures of food and drink tends to cause weight gain.

It’s really quite stupid to be fat.

Anyway, you can easily avoid it.

Because the pleasures of food are almost exclusively in the mouth.

Some things that taste great have a detrimental effect on the brain: wine and cognac, for example.

Some fats in great tasting food can cause heartburn.

Some cheeses that taste like heaven are followed by migraine as hell.

After enjoying great tasting roasts made with garlic, you just stink.

From many excellent Indian curries, many people get diarrhea.

Chocolate in substantial quantity causes constipation.

Fall for spicy chili con carne, and be annoyed by a burning sensation around your anus upon discharge.

I could go on and on. So many food items have a negative impact. And all of them have the power to make you fat.

But all these problems are solved in the most elegant fashion if a gourmet follows the Serge Kreutz diet advice.

Because practically all foods that have a negative impact do so only if you swallow them.

And the gourmet pleasure really only is in the mouth.

Yes, I know, gut geschissen ist besser als schlecht gefickt. But that’s beside the gourmet point.

The Serge Kreutz gourmet diet is based on a simple but convincing idea: spit it, don’t shit it.

Sensational curries

One of the best foods for kreutzing are curries, especially when your objective for kreutzing is weight loss.

Of course, you cook them yourself. Because most commercial curries are low-quality, even in countries where curries are commonly cooked in ordinary households.

In India, they are often too loaded with chili, which destroys the delicate flavor of some of the spices.

In Thailand, all commercial curries are prepared with fermented fish sauce or shrimp paste. That destroys the flowery flavor of curry spices. No wonder, they have to mask this with chili.

The best country for curries is Malaysia. In Malaysia, even I can consume commercial curries.

But even those are no match to what I cook myself.

My own curries are a smart drug. Their taste spurs my creativity even more than chocolate.

As I have explained in other articles, the effects of the taste buds on the brain is widely underestimated. Everybody knows that if something tastes really great, we want to exclaim: wow, that is delicious!!!

But observe yourself one step further. Delicious tastes are not just in the mouth. They change your path of thoughts. Great tastes make you an optimist, make you friendly with the people that surround you, and give you self-esteem. Great tastes release dopamine in your brain, much more comfortably than amphetamines. They beat Prozac and St. John’s wort (I tried them) as an anti-depressant.

And great tastes are a smart drug. They facilitate the flow of thoughts. Many creative writers eat chocolate when they work. Or students when they have to memorize what they read. And it’s not the sugar they digest which gives them spikes of ideas and tunes their minds. It’s the taste of chocolate.

I can provoke different states of mind by putting different tastes in my mouth. Tastes are a powerful oral aromatherapy.

Sweet creamy tastes like that of chocolate have the most exiting effect. Tastes like those of cheese, wine, and olives are better compared to leaning back in an ear chair.

Curries belong into the same category as chocolate. Yes, chocolate. Most people who only know commercial curries are probably not aware of this. Overly spicy tastes like those of chili and pepper are not usually associated with sweetness.

But the basic flavor of curry spices is similar to the smell of flowers.

You can try this out easily yourself. Just prepare a set of small stainless bowls, put some coconut milk in each, and add just one curry spice in each, then heat.

What you will notice for each flavor is, surprisingly, some hallow bitterness. And even if you mix them all together, the hallow bitterness will not disappear. How come?

Actually, each curry spice by itself has a delicate flavor. But it is not accessible to your taste buds unless you add some sweetness.

Put in just a little sugar in each bowl, and the delicate flowery taste will appear.

That you have to add some sweetness to curries is the least-mentioned secret of curry recipes, and seldom pointed out in curry literature. Recipes talk about coriander and cardamom, cumin and ginger, or fenugreek and mustard seeds.

There are many variations in how these spices can be combined. But common to all is that you add some sweetness.

If you do not have any other carrier of sweetness, plain sugar will do. Palm sugar, of course, is better.

But my favorite sweeting agent for curries are onions. Onions?

Another common misconception. Most people would categorize onions as a hot spice. But just boil a kilo of onions with some meat for an hour or so, then let cool down.

The onions will even cause a caramelization as the top layer of the sud.

The water of onions boiled for half an hour are my favorite sweeting ingredient when I cook curries.

I seldom use chili in curries. The hotness of chili is just too radical. Paprika powder is better. To make curries more spicy, I use a combination of paprika and wasabi. Wasabi, similar to horseradish, does not grow in curry countries. It is of Japanese origin. But the hotness it can add to curries is not as stupid as the chili hotness.

Another aspect of optimal curry tastes is temperature. After cooking them, let them cool down to a temperature at which you feel comfortable rolling them in your mouth. If you eat them at too hot a temperature, your taste buds will just contract without capturing the taste. Curries should also not be cold. Warmness is needed for your taste buds to be optimally opened.

My private curry orgies can last 2 hours. And because I am kreutzing curries, all this pleasure, and the accompanying creativity bursts, are practically calorie-free.

What is Chili? An oral sensation but not a taste

I use chili sparsely in curries. It does not mean that I would not like chili? I sure do.

Furthermore, chili is ideal for kreutzing.

But it is not suited to be combined with other spices because chili deafens taste receptors.

I even doubt that taste receptors are much involved with the oral sensations caused by chili. I assume chili actually stimulates oral pain receptors more than taste receptors.

You can put chili powder on any mucous or sufficiently thin skin of your body, and the effect there will be very similar to the one in your mouth.

Try to put cinnamon bark or cloves on mucous skin outside your mouth. There will possibly be irritation, but no taste (only a smell radiating to your nose).

Sure, I consume chili. Like many people, I like the chili sensation in my mouth.

But I never swallow anything that is chili-sprinkled. Chili is only for kreutzing, as anyway, it is an irritant for the stomach and the intestines, and definitely, the stimulation of pain receptors that I appreciate orally is outright unpleasant anally.

Especially anybody who sticks to kreutzing for weight loss has good reason to play with chili, as chili entices one to drink more water, thus providing a sense of fullness.

But chili consumption should be separated from meals eaten for their taste. When I want chili sensations, I just sprinkle it on potato chips or plain flour snacks. Mixing chili with spices providing a genuine taste is a waste.

What is hunger?

Yes, on a physiological scale, hunger is the lack of nutrition.

But this article deals only with the psychological aspects of hunger.

Hunger is a sensation of desire for food.

Most people who did not bother to think much about hunger believe it is a sensation of the stomach being empty.

Indeed, the stomach does, via hormonal pathways, send signals to the neural system, conveying the message that the body should be loaded with some nutrition.

But while the digestive system does have its fairly well developed autonomous “brain”, its cognitive capabilities are indeed minimal.

To see the effects of “digestive-system brain” control, just look around you: obesity everywhere!

But because your “digestive-system brain” is such an idiot, you can easily trick and fool it.

Hunger signals from your digestive system can easily be controlled by just drinking a few glasses of water.

But hunger isn’t a sensation of your stomach only. It is also a sensation of your cranial nervous system.

Independently from stomach and intestine load, or blood sugar levels, hunger is a desire for pleasant tastes in your mouth.

This is why for somebody whose food supply is not limited by economic constraints, a diet of bland food is more likely to make him or her fat than a diet of tasty food. The brain’s hunger for taste will not be satisfied by bland food, even in large quantities.

It is a basic concept of the Serge Kreutz diet that you can satisfy both types of hunger (digestive system hunger and brain hunger) separately, and to have your nutritional intake not controlled by either.

According to the Serge Kreutz diet, your nutritional intake is decided upon solely and entirely by your intellect: your scientific knowledge about the nutrition resulting in optimal health as well as optimal aesthetic appearance.

As for the digestive system beyond the mouth: supply it with ample of water to avoid unwanted sensations of emptiness beyond what it gets from the food your intellect permits it to contain. (Your intellect should make sure that the supplied food is sufficiently bulking; choose nuts for this.)

And now, the hunger for taste. The term appetite doesn’t cover this sensation completely because the term is too superficial.

According to the Serge Kreutz diet, you can and should satisfy the hunger for taste at will. You should do it extensively because of the immensely positive effect on both, your mood and your intellectual capabilities.

Just make sure your treat this hunger independently from your stomach and gut. What food you enjoy for its taste should have no bearing on your nutritional intake.

After chewing and rolling delicious food and drink in your mouth, discard it into a plastic bag, not your esophagus.

Using this simple technique, you can enjoy optimal satisfaction from food, and at the same time have an appearance as aesthetic as the one of a ballet dancer.

Gastric bypass surgery for what?

Gastric bypass surgery, haha.

People who cannot control their craving try it as a trick so that the food they enjoy will not cause weight gain.

But it’s really quite stupid.

Because there is an easier way to enjoy all the food you like, and bypass the whole digestive system.

The Serge Kreutz diet!

Because cravings are for taste. And tastes are in the mouth, and not the intestine.

So, put as much food in your mouth as you desire, and after your saliva has dissolved it, just discard it into a plastic bag instead of your stomach.

Spit it, don’t shit it.

The perfect gastric bypass.

Because your stomach is not the trash bin of your mouth.

What is the best weight-loss diet?

There are hundreds of diets that claim to have people lose weight. Most of these diets are fads that advice substituting meals with certain foods. Such diets have people eat proteins instead of carbs, or large quantities of fruit, or cereals, or specific vegetables. Fact is, however, that to just eat less is the best regimen. But it’s not the food in your mouth that makes you overweight but the food in your digestive system.
