According to many articles, Steve jobs began fruitarianism and fasting in his teens. He would often eat just carrots and apples for weeks. There were periods in his life of going from a restricted fruit and vegetable diet to a less restricted vegan diet, but most of his life he spent fasting and eating a mainly fruit diet. There was only a few times in his life where he resorted to eating meat

"Dr. Ornish advises a diet that consists of over 70% carbohydrates. Ornish, like many misguided medical professionals, wants much of those carbs to come in the form of improperly-prepared, gut-damaging whole grains. A diet too high in carbs can lower immune functioning and potentially cause an overproduction of insulin, a very cancer-friendly hormone (and by that I mean, cancer feeds off of it). Oh and, guess what’s responsible for churning out all that insulin, by the way? The PANCREAS. In which Jobs had cancer."
He clearly did it wrong... it wasn't a pure, clean diet, and he broke it with meat and kept swapping from vegan to vegeterian.
He should've known you can't do a diet "based" on another diet, you have to do -that- diet. Also swapping means body-shocking.
Even that price diet has rules,
If you don't build an engine properly, it's not gonna work. Simple as that.
YouTube " Why did Steve Jobs die" I think that is the video. I believe it is Dr McDougal breaking it down scientifically that Steve Jobs actually got cancer when he was 24ish and how his diet is what extended his life. It is really neat.. should watch it.
and regarding the Dr Ornish comment. A high carb diet based in grains does produce high insulin. Grains are high glycemic. Fruits are not. Except Watermelon.
I saw the youtube video ednshell linked to, about why Steve Jobs did die. They calculated that the onset of his cancer started in his early 20th, when he was working with the old, toxic computer hardware for example. It is worth seeing it!
Thanks steffi, agreed, it's a really great little talk!
