Hi, we're Russ & Allie
We started our weight loss journey in February 2021 after using life as a reason for overeating. For years we had told ourselves that "now is not the right time to diet" and there always seemed to be an excuse. We stuffed ourselves with comfort food because, let's be honest, life is hard and it was easy to keep eating.
Russ: When I was 33 I suffered a major stroke which resulted in lots of hidden issues - chronic fatigue, neuro-fatigue, headaches, migraines, neuropathic pain. I steadily gained around a stone per year and became pre-diabetic. Thoughts like 'this is just how life is now' were setting into my mind. I told myself I had to eat to combat my lack of energy and to stave off headaches.
Allie: When Russ had his stroke, we had two young children aged 1 and 2.5 years. Life was incredibly difficult, even though we had the support of our families. I started to overeat and binge on chocolate etc as a support mechanism. I was also working nights at the time, which meant I was looking after Russ and the children during the day, then going to work and not getting home until the early hours of the morning at times. Things got easier as the children started school and were able to do more for themselves, but by this point the eating habits were already ingrained, and I had been diagnosed Type 2 Diabetic. We felt incredibly tired all the time, and couldn't see diet and exercise as an option because where would we get the energy from?
When we discovered The 1:1 Diet by Cambridge Weight Plan we were at the point where we knew something had to change in our lives. It all happened very quickly. We met our consultant, had our initial consultation, and we were on our way. The first week we each lost 10lb and after 4 months we had lost 7.5 stone between us.
We continue to remain on plan but couldn't wait to share this amazing journey with you and start you on your own.
We are based in Trowbridge, however we also cover the following areas:

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.
