Hi, I'm Maria!

If I can do it, so can you!

I used to be a compulsive eater but not anymore! I lost three stone in fourteen weeks back in 2011 and in over nine years as a consultant, I have helped hundreds of people lose weight. And I can help you too!

Whether you have just gained a bit of weight during lock down, or have a longstanding weight problem you wish to address, we work together to give you the best programme, support, tools and techniques to make sure you succeed with your goals. I enjoy dealing with lots of different clients and their different needs, and I have a particular passion for helping yoyo dieters take control of their food, their weight and their health. As an ex yoyo dieter and a compulsive eater, I know what was like, and I know how to overcome it too.

We can meet online or face to face, at a safe distance. Get in touch and let's have a chat to see whether The 1:1 Diet is right for you.

It definitely was for me.

“No shame! No blame! Where there is a will, we will find a way!”

Here is what some of my slimmers say.

"I lost my weight with Maria seven years ago. Like many people, I thought that I should be able to lose weight by myself.  I should, really, but Maria’s one-to-one support really does make a huge difference. She is an expert in getting and keeping people motivated. Now, when I feel my trousers getting a little snug, I pop along to see Maria and she gets me back on the right track again with her advice and stories, challenges, her support group, texts, or whatever I need. Highly recommended."

Stephan Work

"I didn’t think I would ever be able to follow The 1:1 Diet, but with Maria’s step-by-step, professional, practical and friendly support, I easily went from a size 16 so a size 10. I even lost weight on holiday in the USA!"

Lisa Bracken

"I have been a client of Maria’s for about ten months now, and I have lost seven stone so far. I knew that I needed to lose weight for both health and personal reasons, and I eventually decided to pursue The 1:1 Diet with Maria. This was a good decision! She is extremely professional and knowledgeable and has helped me greatly with her gentle approach, good humour and expertise. I always feel encouraged and inspired after our weekly meeting and I can absolutely recommend her as a friendly and effective way of losing weight with The 1:1 Diet."

Gary Smith

"As a private tutor, I know how valuable individual help is. I have been going to slimming classes on and off for years and I was sat there one night thinking “this isn't working for me anymore. I need help.” So I searched for weight loss coaching and eventually found Maria. I am so glad I did. She really knows how to motivate people. If you are looking for a Consultant who will make you think differently, then go and see Maria. She helped my transform my relationship with food."

How do I find the right Consultant?

When you put in your postcode, you’ll see all the Consultants nearest you. Don’t worry if they’re not on your doorstep – lots of our Consultants are happy to come to you. Take a look at their profile and read what the dieters they have helped so far say – that should help you find someone on your wavelength. If you want to find out more before making an appointment, you can call, text or drop them an email.

How’s this different to other diet plans?

The 1:1 Diet is a lot more flexible than other weight-loss plans and it’s the ONLY one that gives you dedicated, one-to-one support from your own personal diet Consultant. That means your diet is designed for you, and only you. Together with your Consultant, you’ll work out an easy-to-follow eating plan that fits with your routine and gets you the results you want.

What’s the Awards and Achievements panel on Consultant’s webpages?

You might have noticed each Consultant has an awards and achievements panel on their profile. Being a Consultant brings loads of benefits and as they build their business, Consultants achieve awards for their hard work. This might be from superb support to all of their clients to help them hit those weight-loss goals, to helping others in their team build their own successful business. The 1:1 Diet is all about recognising and rewarding these efforts and part of the reward is giving Consultants badges on their webpage, to show you what they’ve achieved.
