everytime i walk past my local chemist lately it has been so busy with people joining the tony ferguson program. what about it makes it so good? once i went in and heard people being introduced to it and heard them being told, they could have 2 or 3 pieces of fruit a day or otherwise could substitute it for 2 or 3 additional alcoholic beverages, that sounded weird to me. can't do without yummy nutrituous fruit!

Hi Louise, welcome to the forum!

Um, I don't know why you heard them saying you could substitute 2-3 pieces of fruit for alcohol - I've been told by my consultant (and it's in the book you get with the program), that alcohol is a big no no. We are allowed maximum of 2 pieces of fruit each day, which does me just fine. Have a look at their site http://www.tonyferguson.com if you're interested in finding out why the program is so good - it explains everything really well.

Kate, what's your user name on the TF forum? I'll have to watch out for you.

Dolly, these lollies I mnetioned weren't DD lollies, they're a different brand I've never seen and were so yummy!

Have a great weekend everyone...and thanks again for your support!

yeah i thought the thing about fruit substituting was really weird! Maybe they were talking to someone who wasn't prepared to forget their alcohol?

Dolly, unfortunately I found out that the shakes are milk based. I sent off an email, and was told that they weren't suitable for a vegan diet.

When I noticed that they had soups available, I emailed again asking the same question, and was told they were all okay, apart from the chicken one. So I ordered some online and when I got them looked at the ingredients, and again based on milk and milk products! The lady admitted that she had made a mistake, but I'm too lazy to go through the return process... so I've been drinking them! Far out, it's like drinking a lead brick :shock: :lol:

Anyway, I got the book as well with the order, and it does in fact state that you can have a glass of wine, but that you can substitute a glass of dry wine for one of the pieces of fruit :o

"An approximation is that one glass of wine can be enjoyed in place of one of your pieces of fruit. So if you usually have a piece of fruit at 11am and another at 3pm, but you know you will be meeting with friends for drinks after work, substitue the fruit for extra protein ... and be sensible about your alcohol intake"

Very interesting :?

Hi Sarah, thanks for letting me know about the milk content of the shakes, it's just as well my younger sister didn't join the program then, she's lactose intolerant :shock:
Kate if you ever go to the TF forum you will usually see my posts in the 'Weigtloss Discussion' section under the name BigMama.
Hayley thanks for letting me know about the new brand of lollies, I will definately be keeping my eyes opened for them.
Have you tried any of the Birds eye steamed fillets yet, they do taste delish.

Well the chinese food I had tonight seemed pretty heavy and very delish. I hadn't eaten all day so I could allow for the extra calories. I had two tablespoons of steamed rice as I needed some carbs. I don't think I'll be ready to face the scales for a couple of days 8)

Thanks Kate.
Louise, normally alcohol and coffee are toxins that delay the liver processing food quickly but if there is a celebration going on, he program will allow you to swap 1 fruit for 1 glass of wine with no major effect to the program. Yesterday being my wedding anniversary I swapped my days food for a chinese dinner and my 2 pieces of fruit for 2 glasses of champagne and I still lost .1 of a kilo over night. I guess once the liver has been cleaned by the healthy TF diet, it's able to quickly process an occasional change.

Congratulations Dolly, a loss and waist measurements in the double digits! Yippee!!!!

I'm so glad you had a nice meal last night. I haven't tried any of the fish fillets yet, but plan to next week.

My consultant did say that although the book mentions you can have a small amount of alcohol if you can't manage to go without, that they recommend against it cos it obviously slows the weightloss down, so I'm going by what she told me.

Congrats again Dolly, YOU GO GIRL!
