Hi, I'm Jo!

Hi, I'm Jo Ostlere


I'm a full-time experienced 1:1 Diet Consultant offering support to clients since 2006 - I use all my training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Transactional Analysis (TA), Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Hypnotherapy to support you on your weight loss and weight management journey.

I work from my own professional premises in Silverknowes, in the west of Edinburgh and from Linlithgow in West Lothian.  I am also a mobile consultant and have a team of experienced Consultants so can provide support in all areas in Central Scotland, Glasgow and the Borders.

I understand what it's like to be overweight and will be on my journey for the rest of my life - so I do understand what it feels like to stand in front of that fridge but not be hungry - why is George Clooney never there?

I offer

  • Free 1:1 appointments
  • Professional premises - currently adhering to social distancing
  • Full range of stock
  • No minimum order
  • Price per step available for ease of budgeting
  • FREE card payments - I can send you a link so no physical contact is requried

  • Ongoing support through weight loss and maintenance

I'm still working full time through Lockdown with telephone, Facetime and Zoom appointments, picks ups from The LIfe Balance Studio in Edinburgh and home deliveries to Edinburgh, Winchburgh, Linlithgow, Bo'ness and West Lothian.

I'm an award wining Consultant - Top Consultant in my previous Weight loss Company, Highly Commended in 2017, Top 50 Consultant in 2018, Champion Gold Consultant in 2019 and on track to be a Gold Champion for 2020.  I'm now building my own team so join me and work with me as a Client or as a Consultant - or both!

Here's what my clients say about me and The 1:1 Diet at The Life Balance Studio

"I came to Jo through a personal recommendation and am so glad that I did! Jo has supported and encouraged me through all the bumps in the road of my weight loss journey. The group meetings that Jo runs are small and super friendly; they really help! Jo's groups have been fundamental to me in understanding my relationship with food and realising that weight loss is a rest of life choice, not just a quick fix! Jo also offers 1-1 appointments, which are very useful and motivating too."

Louise N

"If you want help with your own personalised weight loss journey, then look no further than this page! Jo is incredible at what she does. I've never known anyone care so much for their clients and their individual needs as Jo does. She is a wonderfully warm person with a really cheeky fun side. I look forward to my group meetings every week where I've met some incredible and inspirational people. If I could give 10 stars, I would!"

Andrea Q

"Jo is a most approachable, no games coach who supports and challenges in equal measures. If you're in doubt give her a shout!"

Anne W

"I have today lost 4 stone since starting this amazing journey on 4th January with Jo's support. I have reached the halfway point in my journey and am really enjoying seeing the results both on the scales and non-scale victories moving from 22-24 to a size 18."

"Even through this Lockdown I have kept on Plan - I set up structured daily plans - and Jo set up weekly 7-day challenge groups on WhatsApp which have been a godsend!  We are all in the same boat and the support we give each other has been invaluable.  I would definitely recommend."



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.
