Ashton Kutcher Talks The jOBS Fruit Diet That Destroyed Him!

ashton kutcher jobs fruit diet hospital scary

Back at Sundance, we had heard from Ashton Kutcher himself that he landed in the hospital for two days before filming jOBS because he adopted a diet that Steve Jobs was once on — a fruitarian diet that consisted almost entirely of fruit!

It kicked him right in the pancreas, and left him feeling awful! Here's what he said about it just recently:

'[The book] talked about the value of grape sugar and that was probably the only pure sugar you could have in your body. I think the guy who wrote that book was pretty misinformed. My insulin levels got pretty messed up and my pancreas kind of went into some crazy, the levels were really off and it was painful. I didn’t know what was wrong.

The fruit diet was from the book Mucusless Diet Healing System by German health educator Arnold Ehret who died in 1922 — and apparently knew nothing about the human body or the diets it should be on! Ha!

We're SO glad that Ashton is okay!

    He was obviously going about it the wrong way as thousands of people worldwide subsist on an only fruit based diet. Not only do they survive but some are amazing athletes like Michael Arnstein who wins 100 mile ultra marathons :)

    Perez, the fruit diet will just put your body in detox mode and expose chronic issues and genetic weaknesses. The fruit diet did not mess up his pancreas, it just exposed that his pancreas is not in good shape and any detox symptoms you have would go away in a few days if he had ride it out or have a piece of meat to stop the detoxification process. People just need to be aware of potential detox symptoms beforehand so they don't panic when they happen.

    That's scary…Steve Jobs died from pancreatic cancer. This diet probably shocked his pancreas!

    I have practiced the Mucusless Diet Healing System by Prof. Arnold Ehret for 11 years and have improved my life substantially. Kutcher, Jobs, and others that do not really read or understand the Mucusless Diet fail to TRANSITION properly. Ehret never told anyone to just eat fruit or do long fasts. There is a chapter called Transition Diet that includes vegetarian, vegan, etc. options. Even cooked foods, dairy, and eggs are listed as things that can be used to transition for extreme cases (most do not need to resort to that though). It is the height of folly to jump into a radical fruit diet and claim that Arnold Ehret's book promoted it. The Mucusless Diet is about TRANSITIONING off of pus and mucus-forming. This takes years, even decades for people who endeavor to do it properly. Not a couple weeks, and not using nothing but fruit. To see excerpts of Ehret cautioning people against radical fruit diets, see
