Hi, I'm Charmaine!

Make a change with Charmaine

I was a serial yo-yo dieter from the age of 19 after my first pregnancy. I tried them all with very little success until I found the 1:1 diet by Cambridge Weight Plan. 

We had a difficult time, we got into debt when the recession hit and my partner lost his job, our children were having difficulties because of their disabilities, things were rapidly spiralling and then I was hit with a huge bout of depression! Food, mainly chocolate was what I used to cope and even when I had recovered from my depression, I continued gorging on bar after bar after bar! I knew that I didn't feel good or look good but didn't recognise that I'd piled on the lbs. I had stopped socializing and going out, even putting a coat of mascara on was pointless as it didn't help me to feel any better, cooking meals was hard work, standing up for more than 20 minutes at a time was painful, I couldn't play with my children, I didn't have the energy. 

Fast forward a couple of years, we were on a family camping holiday, we decided to hire a pedal cart to ride together around the campsite. I had to get off at one point for a while because it was too difficult for the family to pedal around with me sat on it. I got back on but when a lovely lady saw me struggling to fit us all in for a family picture, she offered to take it for us. I'd been avoiding photos for years and it wasn't until I saw the photograph that I realised how big I'd become. I was shocked! My arm was bigger than my head! My thighs were spilling out of the bike bars and my ankles were painfully swollen! I was devastated! I didn't recognise my self! But it was at that moment that I vowed to change my diet and change my life! 

Cue the fantastic 1:1 diet by Cambridge Weight Plan!.....I returned from holiday, found a consultant and got going immediately. I didn't really believe in myself, I didn't believe that I would be able to lose weight as I tried and failed for years before. But that didn't matter because my consultant believed in me as I will believe in you! Now I am a happy healthy consultant waiting to support you.

"I couldn’t have found a better 1:1 consultant than Charmain. It’s more than just a job for her. She truly wants to see her clients achieve their goals and is there every step of the way to help make it happen. I’d never have got as far as I have without her constant support and knowledge of the plan. Not to mention she’s a huge inspiration having achieved and maintained a huge weight loss herself. Will be forever grateful for what she’s helped me achieve."

FAQs

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.

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.
