When Jordan Rubin was diagnosed with Crohn's disease -- a chronic digestive illness that affects the immune system -- he was not in good shape; he weighed only 104 pounds, and his doctor said he had the worst case of Crohn's he'd ever seen.
Rubin wanted his life back, so he started exploring alternative nutritional therapies...and he says he found what he was looking for when he started observing the dietary guidelines set forth in the Bible.
Today, Rubin follows a diet that includes raw, organically grown whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and fermented dairy, grass-fed beef and poultry. He's written two books about diet and nutrition, The Maker's Diet and Perfect Weight America, and he's talking about everything he's learned tonight at 6:30 p.m. at Sunflower Market, 2880 South Colorado Boulevard. The talk is free; you can reserve your spot by calling 303-758-4400, and the first 200 guests in the door will receive a nutritional goodie bag.
