My mother-in-law lost a lot of weight on the Tony Ferguson program and is managing to keep it off. Using meal replacement shakes doesn't necessarily mean the person isn't also going to learn to exercise and eat healthier food. It can be a good kick-start to weight loss for some people, especially people who are very overweight. Everyone is different and different solutions will work for different people.
I agree. And it is also a matter of finding the right meal replacement diet for you. I did Tony Ferguson about 3 years ago and just couldn't stand it. I hated the taste, I hated the general feel of the diet and I lasted 1 week.
I tried Optislim and once again, just couldn't do it.
I kick started my weight loss in March this year on Celebrity Slim and I loved every minute of it. I lost 5kgs in about 8 weeks (I know it should have been quicker but I did have my naughty moments and attended one wedding per week for about 4 weeks so that just made it extremely hard). But it did work for me, I actually started to really really love the diet and would fully recommend it. I have also kept that weight off since coming on to normal food and just watch my food intake on Calorie King from now.
I think it can't hurt to try these things as long as you have done all the proper research and are confident going into it.
