Hi jaydees, I'm finding that on the first couple of days I had carbohydrate withdrawals in the form of nasty headaches but I'm past that now. I also felt pretty hungry as it's just a watery shake but I think I may be past that now too (there is a fibre additive you can purchase not sure if it's a Tony Ferguson product, but it not only fills you up and thicken the shakes but it also helps with any constipation the person may be experiencing. I do not have any constipation but I'd like to feel more full and also have a thicker shake (I add more water to my shake to make it feel like I'm getting more)

My favourite shakes are the Strawberries and Cream also the Banana shake. The others were nice. I have not bought the Berry, Expresso or Toffee shakes. The Mocca, Vanilla and the Chocolate were nice but did not excite me too much.

hi dolly,i know u said u dont like that it is not thick enough.could u have less water in it cause it does go really thick with less water.and maybe have a cuppa coffee or something b4 u have shake so u dont feel deprived with having less water.that would give u the thickness u want.keep up the good work!

Dolly, could you perhaps add a bannana or some yoghurt to it to thicken it a little?

Just a thought

That would sound like the perfect solution, unfortunately dairy is not allowed or the diet won't work. There is plenty of non dairy calcium in the shake food drink.

Also if I use one of my two pieces of fruit I'm allowed in the day to put in my shake I might not be able to last the day, I am soooo hungry on this diet and wish there was more food allowed.

Dolly, a part from the shakes what are you allowed to have per day? I am concerned that you are hungry and no diet should make you feel that hungry there is always something you can have that is not fattening. So my concern is that you are not having enough to eat to sustain you through to your next shake.
Worry, worry, worry... :-)

Please don't worry Maria,
The shakes are a balanced composition on Protein and Vitamins and Minerals for one adult per day.
The diet is such that your insulin level drops to a healthy level where you enter a state of ketosis and body fat is burnt as energy.
Ketosis lets us live off our body fat when necessary rather than doing harm it actually makes the body run more efficiently.
Ketosis is a natural energy producing process that is inhibited by our high carb, highly processed diets.

A Typical Day
(2 to 3 litres of water and unlimited caffeine free drinks No Sugar)
BREAKFAST
Tony Ferguson's meal replacement shake
MID MORNING
Fruit
LUNCH
Tony Ferguson's meal replacement shake
MID AFTERNOON
Fruit
Diet caffeine free soda
DINNER
1 palm -sized piece of protein fron the list allowed
3 or more cups of vegetables
AFTER DINNER
Diet jelly

A normal person could survive on that, I just still have hungry eyes Image
I think I'll go back to the chemist and get the fibre thickener for the shakes (it's supposed to give one a full feeling)

Ok Dolly I won't worry!!Not
The fibre thickener sounds like it will help then by giving you that full feeling - best go and get some I think.
The meal allowance doesn't sound a lot to me - but it sounds like you are monitoring yourself well - let's hope that there is a speedy result.

I guess it can't hurt to try something different, and I trust Dolly wouldn't do anything silly :wink:
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

Hi Everyone

Not sure if we are allowed to post other websites on here but....

http://www.tonyferguson.com is the website for the Tony Ferguson diet...

I was looking at it the other day and thought a few of you might like to have a look

Ive just started the Tony Ferguson diet today, teamed up with my grandma who wants to lose weight too (and shes 78). I have had a nagging headache all day and do feel a bit hungry but I havent been tempted to break it... yet. Im just going to have to stock up on salad veggies, diet jelly and caffeine free- sugar free coke to make it through each day.
I actually enjoy the shakes, the flavours are great and even though you have to make it up with water it does taste milky. My mums tip on how to make it thicker is to mix it up in a blender with lots of ice (and a banana if I want a big brekky).
Im just dreading the days that I babysit and work because thats when I do the most, and especially with the kids I babysit for and making their lunches :? But I can handle the days Im at uni.
My grandma has already told me that shes not giving up so Im not allowed to give up on her and that is the biggest motivation yet for me.
