About Ron Lagerquist

The Juice Nut, Ron LagerquistDuring the last twenty years, Ron has been mostly researching, writing, and juicing.  The results: radiant health; two popular websites, freedomyou.com and thejuicenut.com; the four book The Steps To Freedom Program, including the international bestseller, Fasting To Freedom; and the recently published The Fruit Diet Program. His websites receive over a million visits a year and thousands of email testimonies from grateful readers who have found freedom from serious illnesses, food addiction, or are simply feeling a whole lot better. Ron’s personal battle with food addiction and compulsive eating is woven throughout his work, producing brutally honest, heartfelt writing. 

“I am constantly amazed at the shelves of diet books that explain why the reader should stop eating harmful foods, under the assumption that they can simply just do it. There's nothing simple about dealing with the emotions of change. This is where people need the greatest help and yet, in most programs, receive the least support.” Ron Lagerquist, The Fruit Diet Program

Many testify of experiencing profound personal breakthroughs when applying the clear solutions Ron provides in his books, not only about what to eat, but how to make the deeper emotional changes that will last a lifetime.

A Personal Word from Ron Lagerquist

I'm nuts about juicing, and for good reason. I just turned fifty years old and have never felt better in all my life. Blood pressure of 110 over 70, perfect cholesterol levels, and zero health problems. Weighing in at 173 pounds, my body is lean and solid. I wake up full of energy and ready to face the day, which includes cycling, running, or lifting weights. When friends and co-workers are in bed with colds and flus, I sail along, rarely getting sick. People are amazed when I tell them my age, which I do at every opportunity. Just in case you assume that all this vigor is the result of good genetics, think again. Most of my childhood and early adult life was plagued with sickness, a weak immune system, and serious allergies like asthma and eczema. In fact, at fifty, I am in far better health, deal with less depression, have a clearer mind, and get fewer colds and flus than when I was in my late twenties.

Truth be known, I have always struggled with addiction. Throughout my twenties, I cultivated a major dependency on junk food. A wiry teenage body slowly transformed into an overripe pear. Not knowing it at the time, I had replaced the drug addiction of my early years with a different type of addiction: junk food. I was raised in a typical North American household in which hot dogs and Kraft Dinner with a side of creamed corn was considered a healthy, well-balanced supper. Other than the vitamin C in our Tang, there was almost no connection made between food and health. Just reckoned that cruising toward 30, low energy, chronic allergies, weak immune system, and growing belly were inevitable. Taking on the shape and health problems of my father, I just chalked it up to bad genetics. And then a 30-day cleansing diet changed everything.

At thirty years of age, chronically sick and depressed, a caring friend convinced me to go to a local seminar being held on detoxification and healthy eating. This energetic skinny man in plaid pants clicked through overheads of cancerous growths, black stools, twisted fat molecules, and de-beaked chickens, while providing indisputable information of how all my favorite foods had been stripped of nutritional quality and fortified with dangerous chemicals for the sake of profit. At that moment, an unexpected thing happened; something inside made a tiny click, a mental click that would change the course of my future: I’m not stuck with this body. I can do something about my health.

The result was a painful but liberating 30-day juice diet. Caffeine dependency and junk food addiction broke away, salt levels balanced in my blood, and years of mucus buildup was eliminated. Toxic waste from thousands of hot dogs and fries cannibalized and exited my body. Twenty days into the diet, I experienced a level of emotional and physical wellbeing that I never thought possible. There was no point of reference, even in childhood. I had never breathed so deeply and freely, feeling clean energy from head to toe.

Two decades of studying, writing, and being forced to work through my own food addictions, have birthed a growing passion to share this knowledge with anyone who will listen. My desire is that you will experience the realization I had when I woke up twenty years ago to the realization that my future was not at the mercy of bad genetics, but that I have the power to take control of my health, and live a long, vigorous life. So now it’s your turn. Starting today, you can take control of your health!

I've tried a few of your juice recipes and it has helped with my constipation and have aided my digestion problems and even sleep patterns. I've given up coffee and tea and have replaced it juice for breakfast, mid morning and afternoon tea. Just wondering how often can we stick to the same juice recipe. Can we juice the same recipe 3x a day? Is it advisable to juice the same recipe daily? Cheers.
I'm on my 8th day of my first ever "juice-fast" and feeling good!Even stopped taking high blood pressures medication and lost 10 pounds.
Just made the Sweet Broccoli Weight Loss Juice and it was awful...had to dump it in the sink. I think it was the terribly bitter skin of the "whole lemon". If I was supposed to peel the lemon, perhaps the recipe should make that clear...

I am ready to make a change.....i just made the 5 oranges, celery and broccoli juice. Should i have peeled the oranges? taste is not great, but i will drink it....and not much liquid comes from broccoli :( seems like a waste of the vegetable? Advice?
I am wondering how much juice do you drink in a day when on a juice fast. Do you drink 3 main meals and two snacks? Are there specific juices to start with?

I don't have time to make juice everyday, how many days I could keep juice in the fridge?
I disliked juicing for a long time. Lived with friends for over a year who juiced daily. I tried many times and would get an upset stomach. I finally discovered why. For "some people" food combining makes sense. Fruits should not be combined with anything else, except each other. Once I removed the apple from all the recipes and only juiced all veggies or all fruits, my problem was resolved. I wish you raw juicing enthusiastic people would create more all veggie recipes. There are lots of people with sensitive stomachs who could benefit from changing their diets. Thanks
I am looking for some good info on Juicing Apples. Can you recommend any tips on getting the most out of juicing apples. I have a Omega 8006. I also am looking for some good juicing recipes that are kid friendly.
