If you choose to join in person at one of the our centres there is a once-only membership fee of R100 including VAT which gives you access to full support while on the Tony Ferguson Weightloss Program™, including:
When you join the Program, your consultant will go through the Program with you, explaining it, answering all your questions and providing further information. They will also take your measurements and help you determine a goal you would like to reach. Then they will help you choose your shake and soup flavours, other products and provide your Tony Ferguson Weightloss Book to purchase. Each week or fortnight you may come in for a weigh-in as well as to ask any questions and get your next supply of shakes and soups.
Please visit your nearest selected Dis-Chem Pharmacies® for current product prices.
The minimum order from one of our Centres can be as small as one week (14 sachets).
Our shakes and soups provide a significant portion of your recommended daily intake of vitamins and minerals. However, to make sure you’re getting everything you need it’s important you get the remainder from the non-shake third meal of the day in combination with our Tony Ferguson Multivitamin Mineral Complex. You’ll feel better and more energized!
