Death by Diet: Ashton Kutcher almost kicked it?

FitnessBytes with Wes Ferguson

We all know Ashton Kutcher is kind of a dbag but I’d still hit it, you guys. Whatever he’s cute. He almost killed the cuteness — LITERALLY — while filming the Steve Jobs biopic. Because he’s such a serious method actor and stuff, he decided to go on the extreme fruit-only diet the tech mastermind favored (why do you think he named the company Apple?) It’s called the fruitarian diet, and it’s dumb. Why?

“First of all, the fruitarian diet can lead to like severe issues,” Kutcher said recently. “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,” Kutcher added. “It was really terrifying … considering everything.” SOURCE

Although Kutcher’s comments allude to Job’s death by pancreatic cancer, that’s one risk that ISN’T associated with the diet. Severely restricting food intake – even during a “cleansing fast” – is super bad, y’all. These often lead to lack of essential proteins and nutrients the body need to like, live.
Other side effects from restrictive diets: Diminished muscle strength, poor oxygen utilization, thinning hair and dehydration.

Don’t be an Ashton! (He’s fine by the way, if anyone cares).
