Alright, let’s see if being a consultant for One2One Diet is a good opportunity for you.

Ok, So Who Is One2One Diet?

One2One Diet is a weight loss direct selling company that started back in back in 1984. But back then it was known as The Cambridge Diet. And then it rebranded itself to 1:1 in 2018.

Now The Cambridge Diet goes back even further when then biochemist Dr Alan Howard (1929-2020) started to researching the perfect diet. And that’s when in 1984 it became commercially available.

The company headquarters and manufacturing of their products have been in Corby in Northamptonshire (UK) since 1986. And the company is a member of the  Direct Selling Association in the UK.

As well as a Trustee Member of the EOA (Employee Ownership Association). And along with those associations, they do boast of several awards they have won over the course of the company’s history.

Alright now that you know a little more about the company and its history, let’s take a look at the products they have to offer.

The Products

one2one products

Here’s how things work when it comes to the products. These is a diet that consists of meal replacement products. So, what’s going to happen is a person will choose a diet consultant. So, if you get into this business this will be you.

And as a consultant you’re going to create a diet plan for your client and then provide the meal replacement products they need.

Before we get into the products, here’s how the plan works. It consists of steps. Now they say these steps are flexible and you don’t have to follow them in a linear fashion. You can adjust the steps to fit your lifestyle, and/or you can skip some steps all together.

Step One: If you choose you can replace all your daily food with their meal replacement products. If you do this, they say you will lose weight quickly and effectively.

Step Two: Have 3 products per day. And a healthy meal of your choice.

Step Three: Choose 2 products and then a healthy breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Step Four: If you have a more active lifestyle then step 4 is for you. Here you’ll choose 2 products and your lunch and dinner as well as 1 snack.

Step Five: Here they teach you portion control. So, you’ll still be cooking your food in a healthy way along with 1 of their products.

Step Six: This step is all about maintenance. This is where your consultant will be there for you when you need encouragement and support. And they recommend always having some product with you such as a bar or a pack of bites.

Ok as for the products themselves. Here’s what they offer.

Currently they have over 35 products to choose from. With each product being 200 calories or lower.

They say prices vary from consultant to consultant but on average you’ll pay around £2.63 (pounds) or €3.03 (Euro) for a meal.

Here’s the list of their current products.

  • Shakes
  • Soups
  • Porridge
  • Bar
  • Bites
  • Shake’n’Go
  • Savoury Meals
  • Smoothies
  • Total Diet Replacement Shakes and Soups
  • Water Flavorings
  • Step Up® Meals
  • Snacks

So, How Much Is It To Get Started With One2One Diet?

Getting started as a consultant is pretty straight forward. First you need to choose a (find) a sponsor. Once you’ve done that you’ll need to pay for your Essentials Training course. And that’s going to cost you £50 (pounds) or €57.50 Euros.

This Essentials Training course is a 1 day training course. Here you’ll learn all about the 1:1 diet. Including the 3Ps. People, Product and Plan. As well as how to build relationships and to create plans for different people.

Once you’ve completed your training you need to pay for a starter kit which will give you a range of products plus other essentials for building your business. And this starter kit is going to cost you £150 (pounds) or €172.50 Euros.

And now you’re ready to build your business.

The One2One Diet Compensation Plan?

Now there is no compensation plan that I could find detailing how you make money.

The only thing I could find is a reference to what they call The Pathway To Success. Now it’s obvious you’re going to make money through selling products to your clients. And reading the description of the pathway to success. There seems to be an MLM component to this business.

Meaning not only will you earn money from selling the products you can earn additional income by building your team.

So, Can You Expect To Make Money With One2One Diet?

I think it’s obvious the elephant in the room is can you make money as a One2One Diet consultant?

Well, this is direct selling company, which means the effort you put into your business is what you’re going to get out of it. So yes, you can make money.

I could not find any sort of income disclosure statement outlining what the average income is of a consultant. Of course, they provide testimonials from successful consultants. But that does not help you in regards to the average earnings of consultants.

So, what do we know from what we’ve found out about One2One Diet so far?

Well, it’s a direct selling company which means selling and recruiting is the path to income.

Now this type of business model comes with a ton of challenges. Let’s just talk about the MLM aspect of their business model.

MLM as a business model favors the company more so than the consultants. The success rate in the MLM industry for people wanting to create a full time income is less than 1%. Not very inspiring to say the least.

The other cold hard truths about being involved with an MLM are:

  • Nearly half (47%) of MLM participants reported that they lost money.
  • One in four (27%) MLM participants reported that they broke even (made no money).
  • One in four (25%) MLM participants reported making a profit.
  • Two-thirds of MLM participants (65%) said that knowing what they know now, they would not join the same MLM company again.

And the 3 most common reasons people leave an MLM are:

  • Finding it awkward to pitch friends and family (39%)
  • Not making as much money as they expected (36%)
  • Not liking to sell all the time (35%)

Plus, you’ll also find that over 50% of people that do get involved with an MLM will quit within the first year.

Now I’m certainly not sharing this information to freak you out or discourage you. I just want you to be aware of the statistics when it comes to succeeding within any sort of MLM business model.

Your power for making a decision that’s works best for you comes from knowledge. Knowing the real facts, not stories.

Does The One2One Diet Work For People?

Everybody is different and everyone is going to see different results. It’s definitely going to work in the short term, but personally I doubt it’s sustainable. This is a low-calorie diet that’s forcing your body into a state of ‘ketosis’.

And because you’re not getting all of the calories your body needs to function properly. It uses your fat stores so it can function. So of course, you’re going to lose weight. You’re starving yourself.

I think the appeal of this program for clients is the fact that it’s hassle free. It makes things easy. But again, I feel it’s not sustainable for the majority of people that give this a try.

Here’s a great article on the marieclaire.co.uk website regarding the One2One Diet. I recommend you give it a read.

What Are People Saying About The One2One Diet

Now when it comes to diets of any kind, you’re definitely going to find mixed reviews. But it’s still a good idea to get a feel for what people think.

So, I did some poking around. So, I headed to Trust Pilot in the UK.

At the time of this writing I found 48% of people that reviewed the diet thought it was excellent. While 39% of people went as far as to call it a con job.

Now one thing to keep in mind is that there were only 31 reviews when I checked out trust pilot.  And at the time I wrote this review there was only 1 review at the U.S. trust pilot website. Which I thought was odd simply because this diet has been around for so long.

Regardless, this will still give you a little insight as to what people think about this diet. So, take this information for what it’s worth.

My advice is if you’re considering becoming a counselor the best thing to do is try the products and track your results.

Because I can guarantee you people are going to ask you if you’ve tried it and the results you’ve gotten. And if you’ve never even used the product, that’s going to kill your credibility.

Because think about it. Why would someone believe anything you say about this diet if you’ve never even tried it yourself?

Ok, Let’s Look At The Pros Of The One2One Diet

#1) History

This company has been in business for a very long time. So, if you do get involved with them, chances are they are going to be around well into the future.

#2) Members In Good Standing

The company is a member in good standing with the Direct Selling Association UK.

#3) Opportunity

There is a legitimate homebased business opportunity for the right person.

#4) Recurring Income

Because this is a consumable product. You can build a recurring income building your client base.

Ok, Now The Cons Of The One2One Diet

#1) Not Sustainable

This diet is not sustainable. And because of that in my opinion you’re not going to have a steady repeat customer base.

#2) Must Love Sales

If you’re not skilled at networking and love constantly selling then this is not the business for you.

#3) No Income Disclosure Statement

With any business you need to know the numbers. You have to be able to make a decision not only on your feelings about an opportunity. But you need to see the numbers of that business.

This way you can base your decision on the data. Not just a feeling or what people will tell you about the business. And because they provide no income disclosure statement showing you the average earnings of consultants.

You have no way of making an informed data drive decision.

My Final Opinion Of One2One Diet

After taking a look at the One2One Diet. For me this is nothing I would get involved with. Sure, you have a viable business opportunity. And sure, the product may work, even if it’s not for the long term.

I’m not a fan because of a few main reason. First off, there is no information on the viability of the business. And I’m referring to no income disclosure statement.

And second, I wouldn’t want to become a salesperson who has to constantly be chasing down my next client. Not my idea of a fun way to build a business. But that’s me.

Now, maybe you have the network marketing and sales skills to knock this business out of the park. And if you do and this opportunity checks off all the right boxes for you.

Then go for it. And I wish you nothing but outstanding success.

But if you’re not feeling it with this business opportunity. That’s cool. There are plenty of other ways of making money online from home.

For example, Affiliate Marketing is a great way to build a thriving online business from home.

And I speak from experience because affiliate marketing is the way I’ve been earning a full time online income since 2005.

Now what I most love about affiliate marketing is you don’t have to become a salesperson; you don’t need to recruit anyone to build your business. And you can build your business around a hobby, passion, or interest.

And with affiliate marketing you can build up a nice monthly residual income to any level you want.

If you would like to learn more about affiliate marketing and how you would go about building your business. My #1 recommendation for that would be Wealthy Affiliate.

Here you’ll learn all about affiliate marketing through tasked based, live, and interactive training. Along with all the tools, resources, and one-on-one support while building your business.

And the great thing is you can see everything that’s available to you within wealthy affiliate absolutely free.
