Hi, we're Els & Nick!

The Pieman and his bride

Our story is entwined around our meeting and subsequent wedding. Both sharing a love of good food and drink, the weight really piled on after we met. (Nick: I also had a pie company at the time, which probably didn’t help. The question “who ate all the pies?” had become very much rhetorical!). By the time we got engaged the scales were telling it was definitely time to lose weight. And quite a lot.

Els: Like many brides before, I set myself a goal of reaching a particular size by the wedding. Ignoring the cries of “no” from the bridal shop owner, I went for a wedding dress 3 sizes smaller than my then size 16. Having ordered it before there was time for a rethink, I was cursing my stupidity within weeks! The 1:1 Diet proved to be my saviour. With the support of my consultant, I managed to shed 3 stone surprisingly quickly and was able to slip into my beautiful wedding dress on the big day. Big smile worn with it!

Nick: I didn’t set myself a dress size to fit into (just don’t have the legs for it, although I had a respectable bust at the time!).  And to begin with I tread a different path. The steady, but slow weight loss was achieved by being very careful with what I ate and many trips to the the gym. However, the early days of marital bliss saw the pounds creep slowly back on. I had no intention to return to my pre-wedding weight of 18½ stone and. Having seen the great results Els had got, I decided I’d give it a go. Six weeks later I was more than 2 stone lighter. The highly impressive results provided further motivation to push on: I’m now  down to 12½ stone and in the best shape of my life.

"In late August 2018 I vowed to lose around a stone before a long holiday in October. I’d been on The 1:1 Diet years ago. Els was my consultant this time and was so supportive, yet thankfully realistic. That was really important. I’ve a busy social life, so sticking to a 24/7 diet isn’t always possible. Els’s helpful advice recognised this, but made sure the target weight was achieved with further weight loss post-holiday. It was fun as well. I’ve enjoyed the check-ins, giggles … and Els’s memorable advice (“Have the grilled fish, not the steak pie, Alison!”)"

"When I stepped in to Els' home, everything felt so easy and welcoming. Els has the ability to encourage and is a very dedicated consultant. She’s supportive and caring and helped me to stay focused. I couldn’t have shed the 14 kgs without her. She’s been able to relate to my journey and provide the right approach for the weight loss.  I have never felt so good within myself, especially after trying on a size 12 H&M dress, looking & feeling amazing! I’m really grateful for her sheer dedication and support and can wholeheartedly recommend her as an amazing consultant. "

FAQs

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.
