Diet

I follow this to the letter. No compromise. No salt or condiments. Just The LITERAL INTERPRETATION OF THE WORD. I am the only human being on Earth who is doing this; who has this kind of will power. I have not tasted a single chocolate bar or bowl of ramen, or any kind of other food in FIVE YEARS. For a time I cut out the flesh because I thought being vegan was virtuous. This left me without energy, so I reverted from that mutation after several months.

My hypothesis about following a strict diet was that I would age less by training my body to expect the same kinds of metabolic wastes, and hence build the equivalent of increased immunity to the natural damages caused by varied food. Genes play the largest role, but from what I can tell so far, I’d be willing to bet that my hypothesis has merit because I look seventeen and am actually twenty-one. Keep in mind however that I literally have followed it TO THE LETTER. Not a single hint of variety sneaked in once in a while.

Another perhaps not interesting data-point (since N=1, I’m the only test subject willing to fuck up my life this way) is that I have not gotten sick since I was a child. I was once afflicted by stomach flu or some random thing at least once a year. It’s been so long since the diet began, and I can honestly say that I don’t even remember what a passing cold feels like. It’s been years with clean record – without so much as a seasonal flu.

The body has a limited amount of resources to fight against external agents. When it is not fighting delicious new kinds of foods, it can route much more of the relevant negentropy to fighting the pathogens (and the standard damage from breathing, of course.)

I also take cold showers every day. I live near Chicago, and in the winter, it will freeze your toes. No excuses. 5 minutes.

Naive hedonism seeks short-term pleasure. Sophisticated hedonism takes into account the long-now. Will I feel better throughout the day, will I be healthier, will I develop pain tolerance, will I have more confidence and energy?
