There has been a lot written about Steve Jobs diet other than it was strict and vegan. Recent articles reveals a little more about how Steve Jobs viewed food and what he chose the consumed. I do not dare put an actual photo of Steve Jobs in this post less the photo-police (AKA Lawyers hired to go after anyone who might use a photo in post or on their website) come after me. But you know what Steve Jobs looks like and if you don’t remember, Google it.
When he was a freshman at Reed College, Jobs discovered a book called “Diet for a Small Planet” by Frances Moore Lappé. “That’s when I swore off meat pretty much for good,” Jobs told his biographer Walter Isaacson. Steve Jobs had an extreme diet that included fasting for days and eating the same vegetables over and over again — here’s what Apple’s visionary cofounder liked to eat
The word for Steve Jobs diet habits is not only strict but erratic. In fact, erratic would apply better to the description of Steve Jobs eating habits then strict. Steve Jobs proved two things about diet and health.
After reading Lappé’s book, which endorsed vegetarianism, Jobs said he would go on extreme diets, including purges and fasts, and would eat just one or two foods for weeks, like apples or carrots. Ibid.
The question is, what are you being strict about? You can be a strict meat eater for instance. Steve Jobs had some very odd eating habits that seemed to center around eating only a few vegetables at a time or binging on other Foods. My entire health protocol revolves around detoxification, getting the things out of your body that don’t belong there. The reason I focus on this is because creating a toxic environment within the body is what disease lives and thrives on. Cancer is the best example of a disease attacking the body because it has become so toxic. What Steve Jobs needed to do more than anything was detoxify in my opinion.
Jobs later read a book called “Mucusless Diet Healing System,” by Arnold Ehret, which led to an even stricter diet. In addition to traditional meats and proteins, Jobs also gave up bread, grains, and milk. (Ehret died at the age of 56, just like Jobs.) Ibid.Jobs would occasionally binge at the All One Farm commune, where he spent his weekends. Monks from the Hare Krishna temple would come to visit, and make vegetarian feasts with “cumin, coriander, and turmeric.” Jobs would go to town on these meals. Ibid.
I have read this book, Mucusless Diet Healing System, by Arnold Ehret. It’s famous book and offers great advice, but who knows of Steve Jobs followed this advice.
Jobs was way more strict with his own diet. His daughter Lisa remembers that, one day, he spat out a mouthful of soup after he learned that it contained butter. Ibid.
You can become a vegan and still become gravely ill. While veganism is a step in the right direction, but is not the best diet. This is because veganism tends to be a cleaner diet than eating from the toxic animal world. The higher you eat on the food chain the more toxins have accumulated within that food and since animals are at the top of the food chain then they’re the most toxic.
In 2003, after doctors performed a routine CAT scan of his kidneys, Jobs learned he had a rare form of pancreatic cancer. But instead of opting for surgery, which is what doctors recommended (they were overjoyed that they caught the cancer so early), Jobs instead tried to heal himself by becoming a strict vegan, eating large amounts of fruit juices and carrots. Ibid.
Veganism does not equal health, nor does vegetarianism. I was a vegetarian for 18 years before I became a raw food vegan. There is an enormous and fundamental difference between being a cook’s food vegan and a raw food vegan. In fact, it’s all the difference. The other thing it proves is that just because you are strict does it mean you’re not going to get healthy because getting sick is not about whether or not you’re strict with your diet.
By July 2011, Jobs was eating almost no solid foods at all. By then, his cancer had spread to his bones and other parts of his body. Steve Jobs died on October 5, 2011, surrounded by family. Ibid.
You need to drink alkaline ionized water, use spirulina and chlorella for your protein and nutritional Foundation, consume a huge array of raw fruits and vegetables, consuming fermented foods, prebiotics, and probiotics. You need to stay mineralized, exercise vigorously daily, and keep a positive mental attitude. I don’t know the entirety of Steve Jobs diet and what he actually put into his body, but I can say he did not follow my advice for if he had, like anyone else who decides to change their lifestyle to one of true health, he would still be with us.
