Ashton Kusher sickened by Jobs “apple diet”
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.
(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.
