That plant is suffering from poor nutrition and crazy weather.

No it isn't, it's variegated!

It's definitely not, that is nothing like the pattern of a variegated plant, it's stressed from poor growing conditions.

I can see the yellow toned and creamy marbled variegation on @keithp2012's plant, a little bit subtle though.
Use to have one similar but not exactly like this one, and there also popular yellow leaved one like 'Golden Alexandria', ( a true to type from seed, yellow but not marbled, day-length neutral and can set fruit in tropic regardless of season)
Some variegated plant can appear very subtle, as if they are "Chlorotic". The variegation can also influenced by weather (temps and light), In the case of growing foliage-plants, especially variegated, ones need to consider this, to get the best appearances. Some will appear more variegated under full sun (like ficus 'reginald'), but many will becoming more subtle due to increased anthocyanin pigment or other pigment under full sun, some can just get burned under sun.
Perhaps @keithp2012 your strawberry will be much excellent under half shade, in a protected site or in container.

the yellow circles indicated variegation, and the red seems sign of environmental stress adaptation (increases of reddish pigment). Note that the red pigment also present in the edges of most leaves

If I may comment, pictures taking is also making it difficult to see the variegation, this will be better if you block some direct light during photography. (I'm not a photographer by any means though... : Smiling )

And lastly, I would really love to have this plant, by consistent propagation and further selection, you will eventually get some progeny with more distinct (obvious) but not to much (like albinos) variegation. Chimeral variegation sometime are quite stable, but most-times are very dynamic..

@tofitropic thank you for the explanation, but it ticks me off people don't listen to my validation about my own plant, I'm not a dummy I know my facts! I have other strawberries in the exact location that are dark green and this particular plant got more varied color, it 100% is variegated I never had a doubt.
