Ashton Kutcher might think twice before trying method acting again.

While preparing to play Steve Jobs in Joshua Michael Stern’s biopic, “Jobs,” the actor said he adopted the late Apple co-founder’s fruit-only diet.

“First of all, the fruitarian diet can lead to like severe issues,” Kutcher said after the “Jobs” screening at the Sundance Film Festival, via USA Today. “I went to the hospital like two days before we started shooting the movie. I was like doubled over in pain. My pancreas levels were completely out of whack.”

    Constipation occurs when bowel movements become difficult or less frequent. The normal length of time between bowel movements ranges widely from person to person. Some people have bowel movements three times a day; others, only one or two times a week. Going longer than three days without a bowel movement is too long. After three days, the stool or feces become harder and more difficult to pass.–.:

    Hello Everyone,

    As a fruitarian myself, I would like to respond to this discussion if I may.

    Transitioning from any lifestyle to a fruitarian way of eating does not happen over night. ALL the long term fruitarians report the same, it takes a couple of years, even up to 8 years to fix sometimes the damage that has been done from previous bad health habits.

    Just the fact that he did in actual fact land up with severe symptoms, is a response from his body to the fruit in terms of elimination. Fruit is known as a super cleansing agent which will not stop the elimination process once it has started. Fruit removes toxic substances from deep cell structures, repairs organs and cleanses, builds the blood.

    This all takes time! A month is probably only enough to clean out a long constipated gut, but the cell walls and mucus sitting like glue inside such a gut, can take very long to clear out, all depending on how much juicy fruits, is included and how much nuts, seeds, avos which are high in fat. The more fat, the slower the transition and cleansing process as fat sits around cell wall structures blocking good sugars and nutrients to pass inside and perform its tasks.

    Fruitarians have been in contact with the scientists and medical institutes world wide. Good long term examples:
    Dr Johanna Brandt Author of the grape cure diet – cancer institutions world wide have great success.
    Essie Honniball, 15 years + fruitarian, studies published by WNNR in the medical journal of South-Africa showed only positive results and nothing bad.
    Professor Arnold Ehret fruitarian long term.
    Dr Graham Fruit Eater long term.
    Anne Osborne, long term fruitarian.

    Well worth studying proper fruitarians, and what specialists really say. Best to take advice from people who do get good results and have made proper scientific public statements in medical journals instead of the next best actor who had a bad detoxing experience from all his own bad lifestyle habits he entertained before.

    Awesome videos:

    At the age of 86, the fruitarian pioneer, Essie Honiball talks about the benefits of a fruit diet. – YouTube
    Short overview on what the fruitarian lifestyle means to me.

    Fruitarians are the healthiest people alive.

    All the best, God bless.

    Balance in all things, right? If you are going to do a diet like this, you should balance it out with vegetables too. A good juicer, lots of fruits and vegetables but leaning far more towards the vegetable side would have been a lot better for him.

    Isn't Ashton Kutcher too old to use teen-speak? Is he so inartuculate that he has to pepper a simple sentence with "like?" At his age, are teenagers the age group with which he identifies? Pathetic!

      Are you serious?? Ok grammar gestapo, because we ALL know you've never once in your entire adult life have used "like" as a filler word. Get off the internet because you clearly should be playing with blocks instead.

      Perceptions change about people as they get older. His brand is cute-boy duh which won't sell well when he's 41. He should think about making a slow transition to something more age appropriate ... or he'll have a rude awakening in a few years.

    I saw the clip of him playing Jobs. He was just being Ashton Kutcher with a different hairstyle.

    "my pancreas levels"

      I thought the same thing ... what is he even talking about. Insulin? Was the all fruit diet too much sugar for his system ... is he diabetic?

        You don't need to be diabetic to have your pancreas shut down!!!! Booze, shuts it down too.
        Your pancreas works with your liver. Insuline is produced from the pancreas but its also a secondary filter to your live.
        Your pancreas produces insuline to keep sugar levels down but also produces enzymes that help your body break down proteins. If this organ shuts down, it's not good.
