What happens if I want a break?
You can also follow Tony Ferguson’s transition phase if you fancy a brief change from the Weight Loss period of the diet , are missing your favourite foods, or if you’re going on holiday or are unwell.
The Tony Ferguson transition phase:
During this period of the Tony Ferguson diet, you slowly reintroduce more traditional carbs. In essence, you swap one of your two daily shakes, soups or bars with a meal that consists of low GI veg together with TWO of the following three components:
- Protein: ½ serving of protein from the choices in the Weight Loss phase
- Low GI Carbs: 1 serving of low GI carbs, such as multigrain bread, wholegrain pitta or wraps, high-fibre cereal, basmati rice, egg noodles, baked beans, pasta or wholegrain crackers.
- Dairy: 1 serving of dairy products, such as fat-free or low-fat yoghurt, skimmed milk, reduced-fat cheddar or cottage cheese.
What is a typical Tony Ferguson meal?
This means your meal could be a chicken salad sandwich (Protein and Carbs), wholegrain crackers with cheese and tomato (Carbs and Dairy) or a tuna and cheese salad (Protein and Dairy).
There are also examples of occasional meals you can have once a week. Plus, you can swap your treats for 100-calorie snacks each day or 200-calorie occasional snacks up to three times a week.
