As a vegetarian I have also been a fruitarian and a raw foodist and a macrobiotic and a vegan.  I also fasted with stuff like garlic and lemons! Not only done everything but read everything about diets and types of diets.  I am trying to incorporate more fruit in my diet and vegetables because of my high cholesterol which I have brought down quite a bit.

I know you can’t do the imbalanced nutso thing for very long.  Jobs was not balanced but he was a creative genius and they are often unbalanced and don’t see what others see and see what others don’t see.

STORY HIGHLIGHTS

 

  • Ashton Kutcher is playing Steve Jobs in Joshua Michael Stern’s biopic “Jobs”
  • Kutcher ended up in the hospital after trying to follow Jobs’ all-fruit diet
  • All-fruit meals can exclude valuable nutrients from your diet, nutritionist says

(CNN) — After learning that Ashton Kutcher had landed in the hospital trying to follow Steve Jobs’ all-fruit diet, CNN reader Sumday had just one question: “All I really wanted to know was why this diet was bad?”

Jobs first fell for extreme diets during his freshman year of college, according to Walter Isaacson‘s biography “Steve Jobs.” Jobs and his college friend Daniel Kottke became vegetarians after reading “Diet for a Small Planet.”

Then Jobs read “Mucusless Diet Healing System” by Arnold Ehret; Ehret believed in eating nothing but fruits and starchless vegetables like spinach, carrots and cucumbers. Jobs began with two-day fruit fasts, eventually going for a week or more. “I got into it in my typical nutso way,” Jobs told Isaacson.

Ehret’s fruitarian diet, also called the Eden Garden Diet or Ehretism, is often used as a type of cleanse, according to LiveStrong.com. Designed to detoxify the system, it can do more long-term harm than good.

Coming soon: The Jewelry Trough

Heloise is working hard to make and buy fine jewelry for the masses.  Attractively priced high quality both fine and fashion finds for women and even some for men.

I will have paypal available with photos and descriptions of the pieces with a price.  I will later sell by auction on ebay.  But for now plan to sell at local trade shows.  So if you live here stop by on March 2nd and 3rd at the Will Rogers Convention center.  It’s free to the public.

 

Had a good day at the markets

I sold a few shares of Netflix and cashed in enough to pay my doctor bills. Netflix is my new cash cow. I bought in at 55/ps and it is close to 150 ps. Its recent history had it at 300 ps. So I did not sell all shares.

But a cool grand in a few weeks doing nothing ain’t bad. On the other hand the apple drop is bad. I did sell my shares of apple to buy my new penny stocks which have gone up hundreds of a percent and my portfolio is now looking great. But it did not look so good when I had Amazon and Apple in it. It would drop a lot and never got to the pricepoints of late.

My other venture is buying lots of gold and silver jewelry and making new pieces from parts. I plan to sell it but to individual buyers in person for now. I will probably make more money. If women seem to like my work I will sell it online. Stocks and jewelry pays more than I ever got from writing free blogs.

It took nearly 3 full years of remodeling, but finally, what was once a shopping center in North Dallas is now a house of worship.

Yesterday, Bishop T.D. Jakes celebrated the grand opening and participated in the dedication of the new Potter’s House campus.

“Lord I thank you for the harvest of souls!” he tweeted after returning from Washington D.C. where he received an award at the 6th Annual BET Honors.

With the renovation phase completed, the old Woodhaven Village Shopping Center is now home to thousands of worshipers under the leadership of Patrick E. Winfield II, pastor of The Potter’s House of Fort Worth.

Winfield accepted the call to preach in 1991 and was ordained in 1996.

In an interview with NBC DFW News 5 he said, “This is symbolic of the idea that God can rebuild lives if you put your trust in him to.”The Potter’s House of…

My recovery from depression

I am doing a few things differently after this last episode of depression, which was short lived thank goodness.  I have changed meds for one.  And attending support groups regularly and still going to Bikram Yoga.  It is no coincidence that extremely active, mentally and writers are more prone to depression because it is a brain chemical disturbance. 

If you think you are depressed see a doctor.  The medicines really help most people not so much if you are bipolar.

Style & Design

Kate Middleton’s style can be accurately described as classy, elegant or refined — and none of those words begins with a k. If the Kardashian sisters had their way, though, she would have a whole “kollection” of bandage dresses and leopard-print blazers to add to her tasteful wardrobe. Unfortunately for the Kardashian triumvirate, the Duchess of Cambridge was reportedly not too fond of this prospect.

Only four days after Middleton allegedly rebuffed a Kardashian-sent invitation to afternoon tea, she sent back the Kardashian Kollection samples that Kim Kardashian had mailed to her. The line recently debuted at U.K. department store Dorothy Perkins.

According to Marie Claire U.K., the reality-TV star had hoped that the fashionable royal would lend some legitimacy and polish to the sisters’ brand if she wore the designs in public. “Kate seems like a…
