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!
What would Mila have done without her Kelso? LOLz!
