Struggling with bipolar disorder, Jetro Rafael harked back to his idyllic childhood in the province eating plenty of fresh vegetables. This mood-boosting diet he called the Cuckoo Diet consisted mainly of what he termed Living Food. Cured of his distressing condition, he shared his diet with the world through his unique restaurant Van Gogh is Bipolar.


In contrast, his life partner, Robert Alejandro, an artist and TV host, was never in the habit of healthy eating. Then he was diagnosed with colon cancer and given just a few months to live. A natural food combination saved his life; still, he struggled with the dietary restrictions and before long was at death’s door again.


Tapping his scientific knowledge and creative skills, Jetro then innovated a Living Food diet that appealed to Robert’s taste and artistic eye. Converted from junk-food junkie to good-nutrition advocate, Robert amazed doctors by living years beyond his prognosis. Their experiences, tips, and recipes are found in this book.
