About us:

Jo -  I was my own worst enemy for far too long. Growing up I learned to see myself as a ‘big girl’, this became a self fulfilling prophecy. Of course there were diets – many many diets. I lost weight on them, got less fat, celebrated, put weight on. It seemed to me that I was ‘destined’ to be large.  Then (in my early 50’s!) with CWP I found something worked for me and lost 10 stone in a year!* I was thrilled to be a Slimmer of the Year Finalist and Celebrated Slimmer in 2015.  It is still an ongoing process as illness has meant that my weight has crept up.  I am back on plan and ultimately I will be less than half the woman I was.

Mandy -   I was an overweight, menopausal woman who had been classified as pre-diabetic. It was time for change. I went on a conventional diet, exercised more and lost weight.  It was slow and I spent my whole life thinking about or preparing food. I had supported Jo through her fantastic weight loss and decided to try Cambridge Weight Plan for myself. It worked for me and I haven’t looked back since!  I am no longer pre-diabetic and still have a couple of sone to lose.  So if you fancy a diet buddy .......

In total I have lost 5 stone*

“It’s all about YOU. Get in touch for that important chat”


"I chose Mandy and Jo because I could relate to them. I started my journey at 19 stone and was under 17 stone five weeks later. I'm still losing weight and getting closer to goal. I know they are there for me. We have regular contact during the week and they listen to what I'm saying. They use praise, encouragement, humour and distraction techniques to help keep me focussed, motivated and on track. I recommend Mandy and Jo to anyone trying to lose or maintain weight. It's working for me, so it could for you too!"

"I was unhappy with how I felt and looked, had complex health problems, wanted to lose weight but be able to go out.   I‘ve lost 3 stone*, dropped 3 dress sizes, maintained my social life, enjoyed several parties and been on holiday.  My treatment has been delayed as I am too well!  I’ve made lots of small changes that helped me lose the weight and will help keep it off.  I’ve achieved and learnt so much with CWP; the weekly 1-1 support was so important.  I am more confident, happier, healthier and in control.  Thank you Mandy and Jo"

"I was 2 stone overweight despite lots of running and cycling.  I went to see Mandy, followed her advice and lost 2 stone*.  Was it easy?  Yes and no!  Yes, I listened to Mandy about reducing my exercise to let the diet work even though it felt wrong to me.  No, I needed to change, be honest with myself, listen to advice and accept the support offered.  I have changed my lifestyle and monitor what I eat.  I feel great, more energised and am very active.  It's worked for me, it can for you."

Carl C

"I was happy to find someone who 'got' me.  Mandy helped me realize that I needed to change my lifestyle and re-discover healthier habits to keep the weight off longer term.  Mandy has helped me prepare strategies for being off plan for holidays etc by encouraging me to make better choices and by being realistic.  So far I have lost 4 stone and am approaching 5 stone*.  My Doctor is delighted with my progress as am I.  I still have a way to go but am confident I will get there with Mandy's support."

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 often will I need to see my Consultant?

You’ll typically see your Consultant once a week for a weigh in and catch up, but you will have their phone number and you may get regular calls or texts from them in between appointments. A lot of our Consultants use Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to keep in touch with their dieters too. They’re there to support you, so make sure you lean on them when the going gets tough - as it sometimes will. They’ll know exactly how to keep you on track.

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.
