Are the Tony Ferguson Meal Replacement Shakes gluten free?

The Tony Ferguson powdered shakes are not considered gluten free. While the ingredients themselves don't have any gluten in them, they are produced alongside other products that do contain gluten so we can't guarantee that the powdered shakes are totally gluten free.

The Ready-To-Drink shakes are gluten free, however.

Are there any Tony Ferguson products which I can eat unlimited amounts of?

The new Tony Ferguson programs have moved away from the term 'unlimited'. We feel that it is important when losing weight to learn about the types of foods that are important to each food group and how much you can eat. One of the reasons that Australians are overweight is that we have a mentality that we should be able to eat what we want, when we want. On the Tony Ferguson program we want you to learn about portions sizes and how much you can eat every day. We do not have any 'unlimited food products' and discourage our members from thinking of anything as unlimited.

The only foods that are considered to be unlimited on the program are vegetables. This is not only because they are low in energy but also because they are packed full of important nutrients and the dietary guidelines encourages us all to eat a diet with plenty of fresh vegetables.

What is the difference between a Tony Ferguson snack and a snack I can buy in the supermarket?

Tony Ferguson snacks have been designed to be the perfect portion size to help assist with weight loss and maintaining a healthy weight. Some of the snacks also have the benefit of added fibre and protein to help keep you feeling fuller for longer.

What are the Australian Dietary Guidelines?

The Australian Dietary Guidelines are developed by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) and are Australia's national nutrition guidelines; providing information on the types and amounts of food that we need to eat for good health. They are based on over 55,000 research papers from around the world and Australia to ensure the public receives the most up to date nutrition information.

Why has a serve of grains (carbohydrates) been added to the Classic program?

Dietary Guidelines from around the world, including Australia, recommend eating small amounts of wholegrain, high fibre grains and cereals for good health. Evidence has also shown that including whole grain and high fibre foods can have benefits for weight loss. The new Tony Ferguson Program now recommends including small amounts of wholegrain, high fibre foods in your lifestyle while losing weight.

Do I have to exercise on the Tony Ferguson programs?

There are many health benefits of physical activity in addition to potentially speeding up and helping to maintain weight loss, so we encourage everyone on the Tony Ferguson Programs to move more and include as much physical activity in their day as possible.

Can I change any of the Tony Ferguson recipes?

The Tony Ferguson recipes are designed for the Classic program with a specific number of kilojoules and food groups per recipe that will fit into your meal plan. You can substitute foods within the same food groups as long as you stick with the number of serves and serve sizes, e.g. you could change 90g of beef to 150g of kidney beans - just use the food lists in your program guide to assist you.

If I use the Tony Ferguson meal plans and change to Gluten Free , will this increase calories?

There are certainly some differences between GF and regular products as wheat substitutes are used instead such as rice, chickpea, lentil or other flours. Whilst this does change the macronutrient composition slightly and varies between all alternative products, the meal plan will still work as it will still be calorie controlled within a range. Where possible, we recommend using a higher protein substitute, for example a lentil-based pasta instead of rice pasta.

Do I have to exercise alongside having the Tony Ferguson shake to maintain muscle?

It is highly recommend to continue exercising to maintain muscle mass whilst dieting if you are in a calorie deficit (a weight loss diet). This triggers a hormonal response which tells your body to hold onto the muscle mass as you are using it and therefore need to keep it, burning fat instead. For the product benefit of maintaining muscle, this is due to the high protein content of the product. If you are following a weight loss diet, you must have an increased intake of protein to retain muscle mass and burn fat instead of burning through muscle. Protein does not "pass through" the body if you don’t exercise, it goes to your muscles to provide necessary nutrients such as nitrogen, and any excess protein is broken down and used for energy. If you are following a weight loss diet and not exercising, you will still receive benefits of a high protein intake through the shakes.

Can I use any meal plans if I am Gluten and Wheat Intolerant ? and just replace the products with gluten for Gluten free products will this change the calorie intake?

There are certainly some differences between GF and regular products as wheat substitutes are used instead such as rice, chickpea, lentil or other flours. Whilst this does change the macronutrient composition slightly and varies between all alternative products, the meal plan will still work as it will still be calorie controlled within a range. Where possible, we recommend using a higher protein substitute, for example a lentil-based pasta instead of rice pasta.

I started a weight loss program and I’m getting headaches ?

It’s normal to have headaches whilst your body adjusts to lower calories and burning the body fat for fuel. Stay with the plan and you should start to feel better as your body gets used to it. If it is unbearable or continues for longer than expected I suggest consulting with your GP who can rule out any other causes.
